Betawatch: December 10 - 16, 2011


Guild Wars 2 is the king of Betawatch this week, as ArenaNet finally announced that its closed beta (for which you cannot sign up, unfortunately) begins today. Also this week, DarkEden left closed beta for launch, kid-friendly Little Space Heroes opened its doors officially, Runes of Magic rolled out the beta version of its browser client, Diablo III began another round of closed beta testing, and War of the Immortals carried characters over from open beta into its formal launch, forever departing our beta list. And though it's not quite list-worthy just yet, we did learn that Storybricks will be heading into beta this coming February.

Eligium's closed beta is underway this weekend as well. If you still need a key, we have a few left!

Enjoy the full Betawatch roundup past the break.
