Betawatch: November 19 - 25, 2011


While Star Wars: The Old Republic's final round of beta has dominated our headlines, this week's Betawatch has a few more nuggets to offer. Rosh Online joins our closed beta list this week, and on-again, off-again MMO Mythos returns as Mythos Global -- its latest closed beta edition will launch December 1st. MMOFPS Firefall and and MOBA Wrath of Heroes both offered closed beta updates as well.

Finally, Iris Online celebrated its first birthday. Why is that relevant? Because it's still officially in open beta! "Beta" doesn't mean what it used to, folks.

Hit the jump for the full Betawatch list.

Open Beta Stage
MMOs that are in open beta -- sometimes permanently, if you take our meaning:

Closed Beta Stage
MMOs that are deep in closed beta and cloaked in some semblance of secrecy:
Alpha Stage
MMOs that actually expect you to, like, test them!

Betawatch is Massively's weekly report on the latest MMO alphas, betas, and games still meandering toward an official launch. From SWTOR to Toenail Clippings Online, 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!
