Looking for a new action RPG to sink some time into? Everlight, the latest fantasy action RPG from F2P developer KoramGame may suit your fancy. After spending an extended period of time in its closed beta phase, the title is heading to open beta on Thursday, March 14.
Set in a fantasy world, the title takes a slice out of crafting of The Secret World acknowledging that they myths and folklore we’re familiar with are a reality. Focused on four main classes, players will hack-and-slash their way through Atlantis. Heavily influenced by Eastern cultures and game design, Everlight includes an anime art style, customization and rather quirky features like a Horoscope system.
“We had a superb CBT with over 10,000 participants who really helped us iron out the bugs and improve the game to provide smoother game play. There were plenty of bugs so it wasn’t an easy job and we really appreciate all the time, effort and feedback from everyone who participated in the CBT.” said Everlight General Manager, Jiming Zhao. “We’re now moving forward to the Open Beta and after the success of the CBT we can’t wait open the servers for our fans.”
Hit the jump for a handful of screenshots, especially useful since the English-language website hasn’t been fleshed out as of press. Continue Reading

We hope you grabbed a Closed Beta key for RaiderZ from the Lore Hound promotion before they went, because the testing is about to begin. Just ahead of the CBT, Perfect World Entertainment is teasing the story behind an early boss encounter. The Goblin Golem is an abominable construct controlled by goblin magic that has ravaged the local countryside.
The trailer provides a detailed look at gameplay and how players must alter their strategy for every boss encounter. Reaction time is key if your group expects to take down the goblin-controlled behemoth. Of note is the coliseum environment the battle is done in. It appears that most of these encounters will see battle done in a quarantined area.
Check out the Goblin Golem trailer after the break.

WarGaming.net revealed today the World of Warplanes will be entering closed beta on May 31st, in about nine days from now.
Since WoWP’s Global Alpha launch on February 23, it has secured more than 600,000 applications, with 100,000 received within the first 24 hours. Those that applied to the alpha will receive priority over new sign-ups, so if you didn’t sign-up yet and want a chance at the CBT, you better signup asap.
I was never a fan of World of Tanks, just too slow for me, but I love aerial fighter games, so I can’t wait to try this out.

Interested readers can head over to the official DUST website where they can signup for the closed beta. Please note that by registering you are not guaranteed entry into the DUST 514 closed beta. You’ll also need a Playstation 3, incase you forgot it was an exclusive.
Now word on when closed beta will begin or when invites will start to be sent out, but since many companies have started doing first-come-first-server invites, you’re better off signing up early.

The time has finally come as ArenaNet has begun sending out its closed beta invites for Guild Wars 2.
If you didn’t get one yet, there’s still hope, as invites will be continued to be sent out over the next few days.
As with any closed beta, ArenaNet does have an active non-disclosure agreement (NDA), so there won’t be a flurry of videos and new info as there was with the press weekend last month.
I just hope WvsWvsW will be available when the beta begins.

After the Guild Wars 2 press beta event this past weekend (I’m sure you’ve read and watched your fill of GW2 goodness), and now it seems players will get a chance to partake in the next round of testing.
ArenaNet has opened closed beta signups for the next 48 hrs, so if you want a chance at getting into the next beta tests: hurry up and signup on ArenaNet’s site. There’s no guarantee you will be selected, but it’s better than nothing.
Last week, ArenaNet announced that large scale testing would begin in March; and considering February is winding down, it seems they’re getting ready by starting the invite process. Good luck to everyone!

CCP has officially opened sign-ups to its upcoming MMOFPS, DUST 514. The first round of sign-ups are opened exclusively to active Eve Online players, although registration does not guarantee entry.
The first round of closed beta tests, dubbed DUST 514: Mordu’s Private Trials, is live today, so if you’re an Eve player with a Playstation 3 and want to give it a go, head over to the Eve site to signup.
No info as to when the next CBT round will begin, or when it will open up to non-Eve Online players, so the rest of us will just have to wait.
