Betawatch: December 3 - 9, 2011


This week in Betawatch, we learned that Dawntide will shuttering its beta to prep for yet another game-wide revamp, while both The Secret World and ArcheAge offered glimpses of fresh beta zones. APB: Reloaded graduates from the open beta list (again) as it heads into launch and lands on retail shelves. F2P Rosh Online likewise opened its doors officially (check out our first impressions!).
