What's the Hot Beta at the moment?

PokemonTrainerRedPokemonTrainerRed Member UncommonPosts: 374

I really fancy playing a Beta. There's something about playing a game just released.

Plus I kinda like knowing I helped to develop a game in my own little way. (Yes, I am one of those people who feedbacks properly). Good old Dance Online, I made a video diary for those guys, bless 'em.

Anyway, any suggestions on CBTs or OBT to be released or just released.

You guys are awesome.

    Well, TOR has started testing i think. Pretty sure almost everyone would of signed up for that tho.

    Rift is starting beta soon, or already started not sure but heres a thread about it.

    Not sure if TERA has a beta going or not but if it does it would certainly be a hot one.

    FFXIV Is probably the hottest at the moment since its so close to release.

    You can sign up for the Black Prophecy beta. Click here

    Guild wars 2 would be another but pretty sure it hasn't started yet. Could be wrong though, don't follow the game very closely.

    Think I've signed up for Rifts, looks like it could be fun for a while.

    Tera looks awesome from some of the videos they've released so far, there's a certain trend towards action MMOs recently I've noticed, and this looks like it could be one of the first major ones to come out of the woodwork, definitely one to keep my eye out for.

    Black Prophecy accepting Betas still? That brings me back to my EVE days wishing I could actively fly around, lol.

    And of course Guild Wars 2, with the Demo at Gamescon, how could I not? That's my next big MMO for me, and one I'm going to dedicate enough time to manage a Guild again for. Hoorah.

    What games have you got your eye on at the moment then?

    Though having said that, I just received an E-Mail for Perpetuum CB testing.

    Been watching this one for a while, looks set to be a good EVE killer, if not contender. Exciting!

    The two really hot betas right now are for FFXIV and Vindictus. Not sure how the former is going, but the latter's first CBT phase is done, so the next might be an OB. Though, if I know the industry, and I do, it will have a second CBT coming up simply because the Korean version went through 2 before hitting OB. When games are localized for foreign audiences they usually follow the build history precisely, including beta phases.

    Zentia is beta at the moment.  It's a family oriented F2P with surprisingly deep crafting and pet systems.

    I had a little look at Vindictus. The user made content should be fairly interesting, and the battles look fun. Again, trending towards action MMOs nowadays. It needs some work done to it from what I've researched about it, so I think I might wait a little while for the Open Beta. Final Fantasy I will end up playing, even though it's one of those things I may regret, lol. Nah, as long as I can play as a cat-like person and spent lots of time crafting stuff and making money, that's good enough for little old me!

    I am going to Second Zentia. It is a great game. I might be biased because I am the Community Manager, but we have had a lot of awesome reviews and the community is top notch.  So check out our Dev Blog on here: http://www.mmorpg.com/blogs/ChangYouZ  and see for yourself.
