EverQuest Next challenges players to design buildings for Halas

One of the cooler parts of the EverQuest Next development process is that it’s not happening behind closed doors; players have already had the opportunity to take part in multiple building contests to build future parts of the game’s scenery in Landmark. Another such building contest has begun, and this time the focus is on the rugged humans of the Everfrost, the Halasians.

As with previous competitions, a style guide has been released showing samples of how the culture’s structures look and feel. The short version is that there are lots of furs, lots of claws, and a general sense that you will be toasting someone’s brave deeds in the mead-hall once you finish your business in the building in question. (If said building is the mead-hall, you will need to go to a second mead-hall for additional toasting.) You can get more details by watching the most recent video from the team describing the Halasian contest in more detail.

The MOP Up: Evil Island edition

The MMO industry moves along at the speed of information, and sometimes we’re deluged with so much news here at Massively Overpowered that some of it gets backlogged. That’s why there’s The MOP Up: a weekly compilation of smaller MMO stories and videos that you won’t want to miss.

Borderlands Online promises three-month patch cycle

One of the nice things about being an MMO successor to a hit series of shooter titles is that you can draw from and lift wholesale content from your predecessors. Borderlands Online announced this past week at ChinaJoy that it will be able to commit to a three-month patch cycle thanks to all of the work that’s been done in the previous titles.

Currently there’s about two months’ worth of PvE content in the game with more to come, as well as small-scale PvP arenas (4v4 and 8v8). Borderlands Online has no plans as of now to come out anywhere other than China, but it is arriving in both PC and mobile formats in the region.

Check out the new Borderlands Online trailer below and then start an internet petition to get this puppy brought over to the west. Because internet petitions totally work, right?

The Stream Team: Cave-diving in ARK: Survival Evolved

Dangers in ARK: Survival Evolved are not confined to the surface — there’s plenty to die to underground as well! MassivelyOP’s MJ has only explored a couple of caves so far, and the latest one she’s discovered is so large she hasn’t come close to seeing it all before succumbing to hungers of the native wildlife. It’s definitely not a place to wander into alone; luckily for her, the MOP server is banding together to dive in to try to conquer the dark depths. Join us live at 12:00 p.m. to explore ARK’s underdark.

The Stream Team: Supporting pyromania in World of Warships

Sailing. Setting things on fire. Sinking ships. What’s not to like about World of Warships? MassivelyOP’s MJ enjoys causing explosions — especially when it’s on an enemy battleship. It’s just a satisfying way to start the weekend. Her goal is to try out all the ships and see which blows things up the best, but she’s got quite a ways to go before she can captain the other vessels. For now she’s relegated to a couple of cruisers. Join us live at 7:00 p.m. to get in on the explosive naval action as she climbs her way up the ranks.

Tune in live at 4:00 p.m. for a look at the many creations and a chance to win!

The Stream Team: Taming the Transylvania terrors in The Secret World

There’s much to see in The Secret World‘s Transylvania — three whole zones in fact. And MassivelyOP’s MJ barely trekked into one last time, so she’s got a lot of tainted ground still to cover. Join us live in chat and in game at 9:00 p.m. to continue the journey through the lands that are dark and full of terrors.

The Stream Team: Having fun hacking up H1Z1 zombies

There are many ways to release tension, and a favorite one for MassivelyOP’s MJ is hacking up H1Z1 zombies! Yes, swinging that ax and machete around with reckless abandon is simply therapeutic after a difficult day. Oh sure, headshots with bows and rifles are pretty neat too, but they just don’t have that super satisfying twack twack twack that comes with the blades. Join us live at 5:00 p.m. to be a part of MJ’s latest therapy session.

Black Desert releases the Kunoichi class

If you’re a fan of sneaking past enemies before exploding out of stealth with throat-stabbing fervor, you might be the ideal player for Black Desert‘s newest class, the Kunoichi. The class was held back slightly from the game’s last patch, but players can now make a new lady ninja and have her do whatever a lady ninja does, which is mostly the whole sneak-and-stab thing.

Developer Pearl Abyss has cautioned players that the class is meant for the most experienced players capable of juggling several skills to both deal and avoid damage. You can see the class in action in the trailer just below; whether or not the class will be available in the localized version that’s still coming remains to be seen.
