Betawatch: Niantic’s Monster Hunter Now ends beta on June 13th

On a scale of New world To MultiVersushow concerned are you when an ongoing beta is abruptly ended? Monster Hunters now apparently intends to completes its closed beta test on June 13th, future tests are planned later. In case you forgot what that was supposed to be: It’s Niantic’s variant of one monster hunter Game that’s mostly about running around and…well, you understood all that when I mentioned “Niantic” didn’t you? Some studios just have a formula. Niantic isn’t that great! But we’ll keep an eye on whether the September 2023 launch date comes to pass.

Yeah, this week’s beta story roundup isn’t generally the sort of thing that’s going to make you double and extra happy. But we still have our summary below, along with our handy list of games tested, and still look forward to feedback in the comments.



We consider it an MMO open Check out if it offers free, public logins and wipes the server before starting. An MMO is marked closed Check whether it is a private test phase that is not freely accessible to the public; it is also often subject to a non-disclosure agreement. Includes early access and crowdfunded MMOs that we believe are legitimate to test. So-called “open beta” soft-launch MMOs with cash shops, no sign of a western launch, or limited interest to our readers are not listed, nor are games that are NFT/blockchain scams ; We also don’t list any extensions, with the occasional exception. Finally, we flag games as “false” when they have been at a certain stage of development for a long time and do not have a clear route to release.

blankYes, MMO players, you too can do the unpaid quality control work also known as playtesting! Check out the Massively Overpowered beta watch each week for a rundown of the MMOs that are yet to release, though they seem to have established a permanent home in a shack called Early Access.
