Horse World Online gallops into our hearts

Clear the slate of your gaming plans for the near future, friends, because we’re here to tell you that your dream game has arrived: Horse World Online.

Blog Clean Casuals alerted us to the existence of Horse World Online, a browser-based horse breeding game in which players build up a farm, throw different types of horses together in the pastures, and, we don’t know, put on some Barry White or something. There is an incredible array of horse breeds available along with facts about each.

However, it’s not merely about making baby horses in an endless quest to produce pretty foals. Horse World Online also lets you race your beasts, enter them into competitions, and buy and sell them on the market. The game came out at the beginning of August and is free-to-play with various timers and an optional subscription.

Skyforge dares you to enter its hostile territories

Group content in MMOs doesn’t always have to mean “dungeon crawls” and “raids.” For example, Skyforge has its hostile territories, challenging world zones that require full teams to enter.

In a new video, Skyforge shows how the hostile territories came to be and what players can expect when they jump through a rift to get to one. Apart from tougher-than-average mobs, players will find resonators that can be activated and defended in exchange for gear and other goodies. The devs advise teams to have high tactical sense stats to make it in these zones.

You can watch the video after the jump, and perhaps after that pop over to the site to read up on another area of the game, Milene Caves.

Elite: Dangerous welcomes pilots to close quarters combat

Players have a new way to experience Elite: Dangerous with the advent of the close quarters combat (CQC) mode. The beta test for the new mode began yesterday and includes several new ships and outfitting for CQC.

Close quarters combat is a timed arena mode that pits players in quick firefights in smaller ships against each other for rankings and rewards. Players can utilize the game’s matchmaking service to find opponents quickly. CQC is available on PC, Mac, and Xbox One.

The new CQC ships that came out with the 1.4 beta patch are the Federal Assault Ship, the Federal Gunship, and the Imperial Eagle. There are also a mountain of bug fixes, tweaks, and optimizations going on, so pilots will definitely want to read up on the patch notes and check out the CQC trailer after the break.

Wild Terra delivers an isometric sandbox medieval world

Looking for an up-and-coming sandbox that isn’t some weird jumble of voxels? Wild Terra would respectfully submit that you check out its isometric medieval world as a possibility.

Survive, craft, build, fight: These are the core pillars of the Wild Terra experience. Juvty Worlds expects that players will shape the game world and build up towns and castles while fighting each other through the open PvP system. There’s also “realistic animal behavior” for those tracking and hunting beasts.

Wild Terra was formerly free for anyone to access, but as of August 25th the team had to rope off the game to paying customers due to the strain on the server. The cheapest early access bundle that will get you into the game goes for €9.99 (just over 11 bucks in US dollars). The devs project a release date for the end of 2015.

You can watch the trailer after the break.

Destiny offers up The Taken King’s gameplay trailer

By this point most Destiny fans have a pretty good idea of the foundation beneath The Taken King‘s story. In short, you killed someone, and now his father is really angry that you did so and is coming by for some disproportionate retribution. That’s all well and good, but in a game about blowing up space aliens with space guns in space, you want to see said guns, aliens, blow-ups, and space.

The newest trailer for the expansion is eager to oblige. It contains plenty of explosions, plenty of scenes of player characters causing said explosions, and absolutely no heartfelt examinations of love and loss over tea. So jump on down below and watch it, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Lord British’s death captured for posterity in Shroud of the Avatar PvP event

Shroud of the Avatar fans recently witnessed a bit of history: the in-game death of Lord British! During a 12-hour livestream event and pledge drive, three folks had the opportunity to face a dev in a PvP battle. While the devs, of course, were asked to remove all god-mode and dev hacks, Richard Garriott kept his stats relatively high. However, he did say he was “easily the most vulnerable I have ever been in the history of the game when we had the capability to protect me.”

Spectators began to gang up on Lord British when he nearly one-shot his opponent in his first battle. Then one announcer issued a challenge: “I don’t even think the whole audience has it in them,” and soon the stands started to empty and join in the fray. The result? The on-air death of Lord British. Immortalizing the moment for all of posterity, the nearly hour-long clip of the PvP event was saved, and we’ve added it here so you can watch it all transpire for yourself. To skip ahead to the death scene, jump to the 47 minute mark. You can also read up on Lord British’s first death — an assassination during an Ultima Online beta event.

Crowfall kicks off pre-alpha testing in the Hunger Dome

Yes, the day has come for Crowfall fans when the game stops just being an idea and becomes reality. The first round of pre-alpha testing kicked off last week with three archetypes (the Knight, the Confessor, and the Centaur Legionnaire) fighting against one another in the Hunger Dome. Players are being invited in waves, with both pre-alpha and alpha 1 testers getting invitations to bulk out the testing corps.

There’s no NDA in place for fans, so as the population swells (slightly) you can expect to see and hear more about how the game actually plays. Although the tests are focused on combat mechanics, the test is also making sure that things like logging in and patching are working properly. If you’re a backer at the appropriate levels, keep your eyes on your email for the notice that you can get in and start playing.

Mortal Online has landed on Steam

Do you enjoy the concept of Mortal Online but have a long-standing vow to not play any MMOs you cannot purchase and play natively through the Steam client? That’s a really weird vow you’ve got there, then. Fortunately, the 2010 sandbox is now available on Steam as well, which means even that weird vow won’t prevent you from playing it.

As the game is a free-to-play title, players who wish to install the Steam version of the game can simply do so and then log in; there are trading cards to earn for those who find that vital. There’s also a new trailer for the platform release, and you can check that out just below.
