Enter to win a copy of Guardians of Ember courtesy of InselGames and Massively OP

Guardians of Ember [official site] has today updated its early access with a brand-new class: the wicked poisoner known as The Dark Knight.

"The Dark Knight represents the sixth and final class being added to the Hack’n’Slash MMORPG Guardians of Ember. Born out of the desperation and hopelessness that befell Olyndale, the Dark Knight is a merciless fighter who uses both black magic and toxic attacks. Players utilize his or her skills to their advantage by poisoning groups of enemies in one strike, sucking them dry like a leech. Because of their cold nature, Dark Knights are extraordinary lone fighters, who trust in their strength alone. This affords them magnificent attack capabilities but gives them the disadvantage of not being able to heal their allies."

In honor of the launch, InselGames has granted us some lovely Steam keys for copies of the whole game to raffle to our readers, open to anyone who is capable of purchasing and playing the game on Steam. Read on to enter to win!

ArcheAge begins Lantern Festival, ignites currency controversy

Over on the ArcheAge Reddit, people are grumpy. No, stay with me; they might have a point here. Trion kicked off an odd sort of promotion Monday in which players can purchase APEX packs and get pretty big additional APEX bonuses for doing so, which players suggest has never happened before, not even when the currency (which is traded in-game as well) was inflated.

What's made them grumpy is the note at the bottom of the sale that tells people to "act fast" because "this bonus could disappear at any time." Redditors suggest is part of a quarterly financial push -- do you agree?

In less puzzling news, ArcheAge is beginning the Gweonid Forest Lantern Festival today and running through April 19th, complete with daily quests and prizes.

Grab a pair of SMITE skins in honor of Celestial Voyage, courtesy of Hi-Rez and Massively OP

SMITE is kicking off a new event today, this one sure to bring a smile to the face of anyone obsessed with Stargate or Indy IV or just "alien astronaut" sci-fi in general. Dubbed Celestial Voyage, the event will ask players to complete quests to unlock goodies and hieroglyphs, the latter of which function as a puzzle for more loot.

As is traditional for SMITE, the update comes with a ton of exclusive themed skins. We've got two extra existing skins that match the theme to give away to our readers today: Celestial Isis and Stargazer Anubis. Onward to the giveaways!

Snag an AQ3D 'GDC blade' from Artix and Massively OP

Back at GDC, AdventureQuest 3D whipped up a special in-game sword for folks who stopped by the booth: the GDC Blade. But as Artix's reps told me, the studio felt bad that regular players -- who couldn't attend GDC -- weren't able to pick up the blade.

That all changes today, as the studio has granted Massively OP 1000 codes for these exclusive swords for our readers! Click the Mo button below (and prove you're not a robot) to grab one of these keys!

Indie sandbox MMORPG Wild Terra has been in early access since December, a nostalgia-driven medieval sim that allows players to build up settlements (and then tear them down!). Most recently, the game has focused on its Corrupted Lands and crafting.

Developer Juvty Worlds has issued Massively OP 50 keys for the game, worth $15 apiece on Steam, to distribute to our readers. The only caveat is that the game must be available to you on Steam for you to use the key. Read on to enter to win!

Grab a Paladins closed beta key for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 from Hi-Rez and MOP

Hi-Rez's team-shooter MOBA Paladins hits closed beta for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 today, expanding the game beyond its 8 million open beta players on PC. That means the Season 1 patch -- with 22 champs, customization, trio of PvP modes, AI co-op challenges, and competitive ranked mode -- debuts today.

LOTRO and DDO extend free gift promotions due to account bug

Due to an issue with account management, Standing Stone Games has apparently decided to extend its dual giveaways in Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons and Dragons Online to allow players a few more days to subscribe for these free gifts.

On the DDO forums, players have noted problems with being able to subscribe in time for the free lioness. SSG acknowledged the situation and said that it would be moving the promotion's end date from March 13th to the 19th while account support tackles the issue. LOTRO is following suit with its Steed of the Eldar giveaway, which also now runs through the 19th for players who sub up to the fantasy MMO.

Currently, both titles are testing out major content updates. LOTRO is putting Update 20, with its new Wastes zone, through its paces, while DDO is working out the kinks of its new Dragonborn race.

Revelation Online kicks off a guild propaganda poster contest

Remember last winter when Skyforge ran a propaganda poster contest? My.com has now ported the idea over to the newly-soft-launched-into-open-beta Revelation Online, asking players to craft their very own guild propaganda for the game.

"We ask you, the community, to create your own special version of a Propaganda image to promote your current guild, whether it be a slogan, logo, guild-group photo, or anything you can think of, so long as it’s an image," says the studio.

The so-named Revelation Online Guild Propaganda contest begins today and runs through March 24th. The submitters of the top 10 entries will collect prizes ranging from high-end apparel sets to channel-wide shouting devices.

Enter to win a Neverwinter Firesoul Gorgon mount from PWE and Massively OP

To celebrate the arrival of last week's Cloaked Ascendancy expansion for Neverwinter for PC players, PWE has granted Massively OP 50 limited-edition Firesoul Gorgon mount keys to give away to our readers. There won't be another way to get one of these babies!

The Gorgons "have been twisted by the aberrant powers of Kabal, Nostura and Gyrion, powerful mages warped by the Far Realm," according to the lore. "Normally, Gorgons are already dangerous and difficult to tame, but these have been shaped by the Cloaked Ascendancy, scarred by their creators. These rare mounts grant 110% mounted movement speed and three Insignia slots to gain additional powers."

The codes can be redeemed only once per account and expire at the end of 2017, and the mounts are bind-on-pickup. Critically, these codes are redeemable on PC only, so if you're a console person, you can skip this one! The keys should work for all PC players except those located in China, Korea, Egypt, Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, and Vietnam. Read on to enter to win!
