F.E.A.R. Online

If you miss the old FEAR games you're in luck because this beta starts on May 26th. Word on the street is the alpha showed a lot of promise, with some pretty cool weapon crafting. Don't be scared, sign up here.

Dirty Bomb

Dirty Bomb

A team-based shooter from the makers of Brink and Enemy Territories: Quake Wars, published by Nexon, a company with mountains of cash. This is a good combination. Sign on the dotted line for this one nice and early.


Forget the weird name, if the video begins "Warning: Bloody Content" then we're in.

It looks like Gears of War but with more exploding bodies and finishing moves. It has a soundtrack from 1987. Get your ass signed up, soldier. The beta goes live on July 12th.

Rise of Incarnates

From the creators of SoulCalibur and Tekken! Big weapons! In a world of PVP why wouldn't you want to twat someone online with a giant hammer?

The first alpha kicks off May 30th - June 1st so get on it right now.

World of Speed

From the makers of Need for Speed: Shift, World of Speed is an upcoming online racer with a focus on arcade handling and co-op play. It sounds like it could be a winner, so get your paw print registered on the official site.

Hazard Ops

Mummies, mutants, robots and spontaneously exploding zombie dogs. This tongue-in-cheek 3rd person shooter looks daft, messy and fun. All the ingredients of a wild weekend. Get involved.

Transformers Universe

You can sign up as either an Autobot or a Decepticon in Hasbro's online robo-MOBA. It's made by Jagex and it's been through numerous iterations but we're willing to give it the benefit of the doubt because who doesn't want to flip from hot sports car to giant robot in a matter of seconds? Nobody, that's who.


From Epic Games, the creators of Gears of War and Unreal Tournament, Fortnite is a mash-up of shooting and building and it already looks hot. Sign up for this alpha is going to be crowded so drop them your email address and answer a few questions right now.

Lego Minifigures Online

Got children? Just like playing with Lego? You should get involved with Lego Minifigures Online. Who doesn't want to dress up as a chicken and dance to heavy metal?

The beta goes live in June. Get some.
