MMORPGs are massively multiplayer online roleplaying games, our core focus here on Massively OP. MMORPGs are traditionally differentiated from mere multiplayer games by their persistent worlds, massive playerbases and/or servers, customizable character development, and always-online status.

Black Desert’s Ranger is gorgeous and deadly in melee

Daum Games has this afternoon released a trailer and info for Black Desert’s Ranger — specifically, the Ranger’s melee skills. The Ranger’s ranged skills have already been established; in melee, she’ll wield a short-sword as her awakening weapon. You’ll need to speak Korean (or have mastered your Google Translate) to read up on the lore, but the pics and video speak for themselves.

SWTOR runs January events to make up for December’s problems

There were a lot of events planned for Star Wars: The Old Republic in December. Sure, they were the game’s usual repeating events, but there were still a lot of them. Unfortunately, due to various unexpected problems, the events failed to trigger correctly and players missed out on some of those events, with the Rakghoul Resurgence being the most notable omission. As such, January’s event schedule has been updated and expanded in the hopes that everyone can get some time in with these events before they head off once again.

The current schedule has the Relics of the Gree event starting tomorrow and running through the 19th, with the Rakghoul Resurgence running from the 19th through the 26th, followed by the Bounty Contract event from the 26th to February 2nd. That’s a full week of events with rewards, reputations, and some third thing that starts with the letter “R.” If there’s more stuff you want to accomplish in any of those regular events, start planning for the rest of the month.

Black Desert makes the world boss Desert Dragon even more boss

The Desert Dragon world boss in Black Desert was indisputably exactly what it said on the tin. It was a dragon, and it was in a desert. It was even an open-world boss, so it fulfilled that requirement. But could it be even more of a boss? The designers of the game’s native Korean client looked at the dragon, decided that it could be even scarier, and made it bigger, faster, stronger, and lots of other positive adjectives that could be used to line battle footage up with a Daft Punk track.

A new video from Steparu shows off the improved Desert Dragon, right down to the dragon quite adeptly killing the heck out of the character observing and recording the battle. It’s a big, sprawling dragon battle, and if that sounds like something you can’t wait to watch this morning… well, take a look just below and watch it happen.

Revival plots the course of cartography

If you have a lifelong vendetta against all things cartographical, be prepared for a lot of stumbling around while lost in Revival. The latest dispatch from the development team explains how the game’s cartography is going to work, starting with the simple fact that there needed to be a good reason for cartographers and maps to be in demand without making it pointless to go out and walk in the world.

In brief, with or without a map, players will have knowledge of several large elements, like the shape of the overall landmass and the rough location of major cities. Players with other disciplines will be skilled at spotting features out in the world – archaeologists will be able to spot ruins, for example – but to really fill in the detail on maps and remember where things are, you’ll need a cartographer to scribe a map and tag it up. So a map isn’t absolutely necessary, but it helps anyone in need of a sojourn to navigate reliably. You know, just like real maps.
