Savage Resurrection Early Access

The classic RTS/FPS gameplay returns with the new Savage Resurrection early access! As you may have noticed, Death by Beta hasn’t been posting much on early access titles lately, mostly because it is just so difficult to keep up with all of them. Now that Phillip has joined the team we’re planning to report more […]

And Another Paragon Beta Weekend

Another Paragon beta weekend is heading our way and it will be open to all! I am actually starting to lose track of how many Paragon beta events have come and gone lately. Is it two? Three? Whatever, all you need to know is that there is yet another Paragon beta weekend inbound and will […]

Some great news for Death by Beta

I wanted to take a moment to share some news that I think is great for Death by Beta and therefore also great for our readers. As many of you know, the majority of DBB’s content creators have gone on to other things leaving only me to run the website and Nick to help out […]

InSomnia Kickstarter and Demo

Well here is some news that I meant to post about a couple of weeks ago but it completely slipped my mind. Better late than never I suppose. If you happen to recall, almost two years ago I mentioned the InSomnia Kickstarter and its technical demo. I actually liked the look of the game and […]

Another Atlas Reactor Open Beta Weekend

Well, let see…the Atlas Reactor closed beta started mid April and held an open beta weekend two weeks later. Another two weeks after that another Atlas Reactor open weekend is slated to begin, and that just happens to be tomorrow, May 13! Perhaps this is going to be a regular thing from Trion and Atlas […]

GODHOOD Alpha and Kickstarter

A couple of days ago, DBB received an email from GekidoRising asking if we would be so kind mention his in-development indie game, GODHOOD, to all of you. Well, you know our policy of “ask and ye shall receive” and in this case it is rather apropos since the GODHOOD alpha is freely available to […]

Despite the Atlas Reactor closed beta only firing up a couple of weeks ago, Trion have decided that they really want to have a bigger horde of players to test out the game at will, at least temporarily. Thus, you might all be interested to know that there is an Atlas Reactor open beta weekend […]

The Wild Eight Kickstarter and Pre-Alpha Demo

I have been keeping my eye on The Wild Eight Kickstarter campaign lately because it sounds like a very interesting survival game premise (which is impressive considering the glut of survival games that have appeared over the past few years). This week it got even more interesting with the release of a pre-alpha demo of […]

Paragon Beta Weekends

So here is some news that was announced last week and is worth reading over if you have been interested in checking out Paragon, the incoming third person MOBA from Epic Game.  Actually, this is an update to the last post I made regarding Paragon and its beta testing. Epic is going to start running […]

I had actually seen mention of the Riders of Icarus closed beta last and it was in the back of my mind to check out. But then one of the DBB readers, Roscoe, emailed me to tell me about it and some other betas in the works, and so I figured I should get on […]
