Rip and roar so you can soar

Betawatch: Launchapalooza | Massively Overpowered

A huge explosion is impossible – not impossible, of course, but certainly not something that should be taken lightly. But what if it were? What if such a thing were possible?

The Betawatch launchapalooza is a celebration about how we can make EVE Online a much better place for players to have new and exciting experiences that we can only dream of right now. The goals of this event are to great players with the opportunity to be more involved with CCP through their efforts to make EVE Online a better place, to raise awareness among the public of the multitude of things we’re working on at CCP to make EVE a better place, and to help make the community a a stronger and more cohesive place.

After last week’s rather lackluster opening, it’s good to know that we can celebrate two games leaving our list this week, as both are really, no joke, absolutely off to a great start. Crowfall , and Swords of Legends Online are now in full launch, so hello! It’s really great. I love it.

More news on the beta, including games that will remain in beta….

Our list has shrunk a bit this week due to the aforementioned launches, but for those who want to check out the games in testing, you’ll find a list of beta titles below. That’s good, right? Yes. And as always, feel free to let us know in the comments if anything caught your eye during the testing phase.

As always, we expect the MMO to be in the open testing phase when it signs up for free to the public and releases the server before launch. An MMO is in test phase, closed if it goes through a closed test phase to which the general public does not have free access; it is also usually under NDA. MMOs with early access and MMOs with crowdfunding that we believe are seriously testing will be included. So-called open-beta MMOs with online stores, no signs of a western launch, or limited interest to our readers will not be included; nor will we include expansions, with few exceptions.
