Betawatch: November 26 - December 2, 2011


This week in Betawatch, Trion's MMORTS End of Nations kicked off a round of beta test signups, XLGAMES teased us with more ArcheAge closed beta footage, MMOFPS Blacklight Retribution joined our closed beta list, and both War of the Immortals and DragonSoul migrated to open beta status. And don't forget Glitch, which actually moved from live back into open beta in a first-for-Betawatch "unlaunchening."

Are you looking for a new beta to tinker with? We distributed beta keys for three titles over the week: Archlord X: The Chronicles' closed beta; Mythos Global, whose current round of closed beta runs through Monday; and Rosh Online's closed beta, which we announced last week. That should keep you busy if you weren't one of the lucky few to be invited to this weekend's Star Wars: The Old Republic beta round.

The full Betawatch roundup is just beyond the cut!

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:

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!
