AlphaBeta Soup 10/26: The Week of Hawken!
By Shannon Doyle (Leliah), OnRPG Journalist
Hello again Soupers! Did you miss us last week? We were so busy here in the office with SOE Live, Elder Scrolls and Extra Life plus our normal work that it seems we somehow forgot to post the AlphaBeta Soup last week! Have no fear though, everything is still here and that just means a double helping this week. I hope you’re hungry! In addition to the huge list of new games and moving from open to closed beta Primal Carnage has left the soup for the wild world of live!
As ever anything new this week or any changes are in orange in the list below.
These are all the beta giveaways currently running on OnRPG. There’s no guarantee that we won’t run out so grab them quick.
