troveshop - Bless Online Russian closed beta begins October 25

Are you in Russia? If so, your English reading comprehension is really great if you’re here browsing Massively OP! In any case, we have some good news for you: Bless Online is preparing to launch its closed beta test in your country on October 25th.

The game is being handled by 101XP in Russia, and Steparu postulates that Bless will operate with an IP block as it’s being rolled out in other regions by different companies. 101XP advises that fans stay tuned for more information about the closed beta test, including a schedule of events and ways to obtain a key.

Not in Russia? The rest of this post is for you too! There are a pair of gorgeous trailers that you have to check out below to whet your appetite for when (if?) Bless arrives in your region.

Betawatch: Valiance Online moves into alpha (October 7, 2016) on troveshop

Betawatch: Valiance Online moves into alpha (October 7, 2016) on troveshop

When City of Heroes closed, fans moved on to many places, one of which was the “Plan Z” category of games that were meant to make spiritual sequels. Valiance Online is one such game, and it has announced both its launch business model and its upcoming alpha. Congratulations to the team on that one!

Of course, that was hardly the only bit of test-based news this week. Don’t believe me? Why not have a peek at some more stories, then?

  • The open beta for AdventureQuest 3D is kicking off on October 18th. Mostly. Some platforms will get it before others. That’s still open beta, but it makes sense to hedge bets, sort of.
  • Trion announced that RIFT’s Starfall Prophecy expansion will enter open beta on October 13th.
  • Bless Online is starting its closed beta! In Russia. Not here...

Trove Battleverse PvP Trailer


Trove’s PvP mode – the Battle Arena – has been in beta for a couple of weeks, but is now being unlocked for everyone. It’s a 5v5 game of Capture the Flag, with the emphasis actually being on doing that rather than amassing killstreaks. Each game lasts just five minutes, an idea influenced by games with universal appeal like Nintendo’s Splatoon. “They’re really quick [games], which we find helps reduce the sadness when you lose,” reveals Krausnick. “If you get really invested in a game and play for an hour, when you lose you’re really upset.
