Mobile MMOs: Pokemon Go’s curfew, Logres’ launch, and spinoffs for Aion and TERA

By chance, we had a bunch of easily combinable mobile MMO news stories waiting to be written this morning, so let’s get to them — here in the comfort of our MMOs you’ve never heard of series!

We’ll begin, however, with a mobile MMOARG you’ve definitely heard of: Pokemon Go. Players of the game that cannot be killed are going ballistic over what appears to be a curfew on raid battles, which seems to limit raids to daylight hours. East coast players are particularly annoyed because the stealth-curfew meant they lost of a day of play — and a large chunk of the small sliver of time a particular legendary, Moltres, is available for capture.

Meanwhile, Japanese MMORPG Logres has landed on western shores. Aiming Inc. soft-launched the game on Google Play and the iOS AppStore earlier this week, playable by gamers in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, France, and Germany. Devs say the game “features countless equipment and job customization options, allowing players to create unique avatars and play styles for masters and novice players alike. Additionally, players can team up with friends in real-time co-op quests and legendary encounters to save a world from chaos.”

Finally, we’re getting goodies from MMORPGs long-established in the west that are being transformed with mobile versions: TERA and Aion.

Netmarble’s released a new teaser trailer for TERA M up above — it’s brief and in Korean, mind you, but it looks pretty slick. MMO Culture says the game is part of the original PC version’s timeline, just even further in the past.

Aion, too, will see a mobile spinoff in the form of Aion: Legions of War, which isn’t an MMO but more of a real-time strategy RPG. Expect it to launch in the latter half of 2017.

I definitely recommend Logres if you’re looking for a mobile MMO on the go, its almost as good as a f2p PC MMO which is saying a lot because there’s no stamina system, great co-op, no vip and the premium currency is easy to get.
