Earn a new mount in TERA by leveling a new character in Kritika Online

There are, presumably, more people enjoying TERA right now than enjoying Kritika Online. That’s sort of to be expected; the former is an established game, the latter is new. So it’s quite possible that you’re playing TERA and haven’t yet played Kritika… but what if the developers enticed you with a new mount you can earn just by leveling up in Kritika several times? Until August 31st you can earn one of two mounts in TERA just by hitting level 20 or 50 in Kritika during the promotional period.

It’s worth noting that players who have already hit level 20 or 50 will have to start a new character to earn these benefits; an existing character doesn’t count. But other than that, it may be the ideal promo for anyone looking to ride a love wolf in TERA, since all you have to do is play another game for a bit to get the mount for free, including a version that restores your health as you ride. So if you haven’t tried the game, consider this your motivation for getting in on it.

Gigantic challenges its community to deal 2.1 billion damage to Guardians in a week

When trying to cause players to behave a certain way, designers have a variety of tools available. You have to carefully balance game mechanics to ensure that players are gently steered toward the right way of play while also rewarding players who do the right thing. So how, for example, do you make sure that players in Gigantic know to damage the Guardians in a match?

Well, you can always just run a community event asking players to deal billions of cumulative damage for a couple of weeks. That works.

Final Fantasy XI offers discounts and majorly redesigns Monk

Players of the most punch-drunk class in Final Fantasy XI will be learning to play a wildly different job with the game’s August version update. Boost, for example, now has a 60-second cooldown and automatically affects your next autoattack or weaponskill. Chakra restores more health and has a three-minute cooldown instead of five minutes. Dodge and Focus have both had their recasts decreased significantly and their bonuses improved. It’s going to be a pretty significant set of changes for players to deal with, even without new Superior 2 equipment and the incoming Ambuscade changes.

But perhaps none of this means anything to you, as you’ve never actually played the game. Good news, then; the game is offering people a discount to get into the full game through most of August. From August 9th through August 31st, you can pick up the full collection for just $10, allowing you to see everything on offer in Vana’diel at a third of the usual price. That’s a pretty nice discount. Server transfers are also discounted, so players can jump servers to play together if they so desire.

Enter to win a Neverwinter Ash Lion mount for PC from PWE and Massively OP

To celebrate the arrival of Tomb of Annihilation for Neverwinter on PC last week, PWE has kindly given Massively OP 50 Ash Lion mount keys to give away to our readers. The Ash Tribal Lion Mount grants +80 Movement Speed and offers three Insignia slots. And he’s a beauty!

Elder Scrolls Online puts a high hall on the market

Sure, you could be content with your little one-room cell for the bare minimum of comfort and space, but if you’re going to be investing in Elder Scrolls Online’s housing market, why not move into something worthy of your status?

This month, the MMO is introducing one of its grandest player housing options yet: Hakkvild’s High Hall. It’s a roomy and spacious building with a great view at the top of the town. Not sold yet? It also has convenient access to the family crypts. Perfect for Halloween. The hall is coming to computers on August 14th and consoles on August 28th.

ESO has a few other new options in the crown store coming in August, such as a few new costume sets, a Daedric Set of Azura package of housing decor, a wolf mount, a mechanical spider mount, a handful of pets, and the neat-looking ebony epidermis skin.

Guardians of Ember goes on sale, struggles to add horde mode

Early access title Guardians of Ember was hoping to have a great week, what with introducing a cool new feature and all, but it’s turned into a bit of a mess overall.

The team wanted to include a “horde mode” that would pit a group of players against neverending waves of bad guys until overwhelmed. And while the update went out on Monday, by Tuesday problems with the system required a rollback and a rework of the system.

The good news is that the horde mode should be active today, and players can enjoy a double XP event over the weekend as compensation. For those who have yet to pick up this hack-and-slash MMO, the base edition of Guardians of Ember is 50% off at $14.99 until August 1st.

Dark and Light is on sale, encourages players to enjoy bugs

Are you sitting around the house, whining to your mom that you’re bored? Are you doing that while technically being 35 years of age? Then there’s always Dark and Light to check out, considering that the sandbox is now out on early access — and is being sold at 17% off until August 3rd.

You might want to hold off a few days before heading into it, however. The team is frantically patching it in response to server instability and other issues, so it’s still in that post-release chaotic period that sends weaker players back to their beds to hide under covers.

In the meanwhile, the team suggests that you enjoy the bugs as content: “Some players have discovered couple of fun things in the build and we are working towards a fix. However, they are extremely fun in their current state, so we hope you all enjoy the laughs in the mean time. Whether it be hitching a ride on your friend’s Griffin’s wing tip or shrinking yourself down to Ant Man size.”

BioWare’s Anthem’s fourth pillar is obviously corn

Move over, Hearthstone’s Ice Cream Citadel: BioWare is currently promoting Anthem by way of a massive corn maze and I am not even making that up.

“In a world saturated with banners and billboards, getting the message out about our new game, Anthem, is more important than ever. Rather than taking a conventional approach, we’ve chosen a field as our medium. What better way to celebrate the growth of a new game than through corn, which also grows?”

The “shared-world action RPG” was announced at E3 earlier this summer and looks freaking spectacular. We don’t really get why they’re going with corn, but, “I mean, it’s a fucking 50-foot exosuit,” as BioWare’s Amanda Klesko put it, so let’s just go with it.
