On Thursday, December 13th, 2012 at 9 am Pacific the Wizardry Online Closed Beta will come to an end, and characters will be wiped. The SOE Webcast at 4PM PST will have news on when Open Beta starts and what changes fans can expect to see in the new release.

News and Twitch.tv link here.

This game is pure, stale dead horse. Sony can keep on flogging it in an attempt to get it on it's feet, but it's just not going to do it.

Generally publishers will only wipe at the end of Closed Beta-- it is rare to see one wipe after Open Beta. I have only seen it twice.

It has been said on the games offical forums that the Open Beta characters will be wiped prior to release, since they're still fixing things and testing cash shop items.

"Our plan is to wipe Open Beta. A lot of folks use Open Beta as a soft launch, that's not our desire."

But they are adding things to the Open Beta that were not avalaible in the CBT. Such as...

  • Limited access to Royal Shop items at testing prices
  • Updated Translations
  • Continued Story Line, with access to Underground Sewers
  • Ability to Skip Cut Scenes

Here, I have a proper answer to this:

"Yes, they said a wipe will occur around the 13th of January, for the release on the 16th."

Recap of the webcast here. CBT/OBT rewards, EU server and other coolness.

There will be benefits for SOE Station Pass members, too.

They needed to be put out of their misery.
