Betawatch: June 9 - 15, 2012

Creepiest TSW header ever
This week, Divina joined our open beta list, while Universal Monsters Online, Dragon Knights and Maestia have been etched onto the closed beta roster. Don't forget to nab your chance at a DUST 514 beta key and jump into this weekend's The Secret World beta test!

Longtime Betawatchers will notice that starting tonight, we've redefined how we categorize MMOs in testing. Many of the games we used to list have now been deemed to have soft-launched, cleaning up the column for those players interested in following games actually in testing! Check out the new Betawatch roundup behind the cut.

Open testing phase
Massively considers a game to be in open testing if it has open, public signups and plans for a server wipe before its official launch. Self-described "open beta" MMOs that have soft-launched with functioning real-money cash shops will not be listed.

Closed testing phase
We consider an MMO to be in closed testing if it features either future test signups or an ongoing semi-private beta/alpha that cannot immediately and freely be accessed by the general public. Some are restricted by NDAs.

The following games graduated from Betawatch in June 2012 because they do not fit Massively's revised definition of open or closed testing (most were determined to have soft launched with cash shops, and we wish them well!): Auto Club Revolution, Brick-Force, CardMon Hero, Castlot, Command & Conquer Tiberium Alliances, Dark Eden, DragonSoul, Hellgate Global, Hunter Blade, Immortal King, Jagged Alliance, Mythos Global, Planet War, Remnant Knights, Repulse, Rusty Hearts, Scarlet Legacy, Spirit Tales, SteelWar Online, Tribal Trouble 2, War of Angels, Wrath of Heroes, and Zentia. Did we miss one or make a mistake? Please let us know!

Betawatch is Massively's weekly report on the latest MMO alphas, betas, and other games still meandering toward an official launch. From ArcheAge to World of Warplanes, it's covered here, complete with sign-up links so that you too can perform the unpaid quality-control work otherwise known as game testing. Drop us a comment if we've missed one!
