It’s been a light week in the world of Alphas and Betas. But there was good news for MechWarrior as it was able to work past the issues that was holding it back and it is now in open beta. The last WorldAlpha Alpha weekend has been scheduled to take place November 9. With closed beta weekends scheduled for later in the month and into December. Lord of the Rings Online is now in beta testing for Macs. And finally there is a giveaway going for Kingsroad beta keys.
