Neverwinter players who are playing the beta may have noticed a rollback, after Crytpic was informed by players of an exploit which some players used to their economic advantage. Recall the recent exploit in Diablo 3 which resulted in the Auction Houses being brought down and you get the idea.

Invites started going out last night, so check your email. Gazillion Entertainment said the beta will be focused on bug smashing so if you have a key, they kindly request your presence. In-game currency will also be handed out so as to test cash shop purchases. All cash, and all other progress, will be wiped once the tester is finished. Marvel Heroes is slated for release on June 4. Thanks, Lorehound.

A video has turned up online showing almost 20 minutes of The Elder Scrolls Online, presumably captured from a recent beta event. It demonstrates the character creator, dialogue, and the player dashing about a sandy environment, fighting wolves and doing emotes.

Carbine Studios has opened Wildstar beta registration to all comers; you can get on board here. NCSoft told Destructoid that the beta won’t follow the usual weekend-only pattern, with testing periods expected to run for a week or more at a time. Wildstar is expected later this year; its conceit is that it offers a cartoony sci-fi world to explore with a kind of wild west feel. It hopes to offer long-term end-game value.

Bohemia pinged us to point out that the Arma 3 alpha has been updated. There are plenty of changes to take in but the key items include improved network performance, reducing vehicle lag; an end to some peculiar crashes; and that you can no longer throw grenades under water. Okay, maybe that last one is interesting mainly to me. Full patch notes are available on Steam.

Sci-fi platform sandbox Edge of Space is looking for beta testers from 7:00PM EST March 8 through the same time on March 10. To grab a code, just visit the game’s website; a trailer through the break should give you a taste of what’s to come. Edge of Space will sell for $15 when it launches later this year but is $10 on both Desura and Rain while in beta, and once you buy in you’ll have unlimited beta access. If you like it, why not give it an upvote on Steam Greenlight?

Just a reminder that anybody asking for your personal details to sign up for a Call of Duty beta is probably trying to steal your details and make your life miserable. Fusible has word of a new scam using the ModernWarfare4beta.com domain name. Some minor sleuthing quickly exposes the site’s owners, who have nothing at all to do with Infinity Ward or Activision. Similar scams turned up for Black Ops 2 last year, as well as for Halo 4, thanks to the enormous non-core audiences big name shooters command. Be wary.

Dota 2 has surpassed The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to nab the record of most concurrent users on Steam. Dota 2 peaked at 297,010 users on March 1, overtaking Skyrim’s 287,411, which at the RPG’s launch was the highest total player number Valve’s service had ever recorded for a single title. The occasion was noted by a Reddit user and even charted, showing the MOBA’s player base growing steadily; expect it to hold the record for quite some time.
