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!
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!
SMITE turned three years old today, and in that time it has offered players a multitude of new gods to play (many of which Massively OP's MJ has really enjoyed showing off!). Now you can get presents for celebrating its birthday with us; MJ has a multitude of gods and skins to give away as well as one special gift of 2,500 gems! Tune in live at 4:00 p.m. for the birthday giveaway and your chance to win.
Who: MJ Guthrie
When: 4:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday, March 25th, 2017
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!
Touting proudly (and weirdly) that SMITE
is almost out of its "toddler years," Hi-Rez Studios
is throwing a week of celebration for the MOBA's third birthday
. Starting tomorrow and running through March 27th, SMITE
will boast ongoing and daily events to mark this occasion.
For the full week, SMITE is activating double login bonuses and handing out a birthday global emote to any player that gets a single win during the promotion. There's also a schedule posted of daily sales and giveaways that include free gems, a free enigma chest, and triple worshipers. The studio is also planning to run another community skin contest, starting tomorrow.
Hi-Rez recently put development of mobile spin-off SMITE Rivals on indefinite hold in favor of focusing more on a different spin-off, SMITE Tactics.
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!
Has it really been a year since Paragon first went into early access? It certainly has according to the developers, and they would know. By way of celebration, players are being treated to a nice big patch containing all sort of fun toys, starting with a new hero named Yin. She whips things and reflects projectiles, so if that's your thing you should be happy to see her show up.
The game has also adjusted balance on 20 different existing heroes, as well as adjusting several cards and adding a large number of new ones. Players also have access to the new Banner feature, allowing you to show off your sign for kills and tower destruction. Last but not least, there are also a number of promotional giveaways to coincide with the anniversary. You can find out everything from the full patch notes, or you can check out the top-level overview with the video just below.
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. And Hi-Rez is touting a $50,000 prize pool for what it's dubbed the "Console Wars" Paladins tourney at Dreamhack this July.
Paladins will be free-to-play on launch; in the meantime, you'll need keys to play on console. Guess who's got keys for both platforms? You betcha! Click the Mo button below (and prove you're not a robot) to grab one of these keys!
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.
Online robot-builder-brawler-hybrid Robocraft officially hits beta today with a massive patch after racking up almost 10 million players during its alpha -- and now it's over 10 million indeed. How does it work? Let me quote myself: "The gist is that you build your own blocky robot thingamabob and then drive, fly, or paddle it out to beat up other people's whatsits and see who's got the best gewgaw. May the best doohickey win."
To celebrate the beta launch and make it easy to jump in, Freejam has granted us a slew of sweet starter pack codes that include a Robocraft Holoflag and 6 Protonium Crates stuffed with new items you're gonna need when starting out in the game.

To celebrate the arrival of last week's Cloaked Ascendancy expansion
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!
In honor of the early access launch of The Exiled on Steam today, Fairytale Distillery has granted us some lovely keys to raffle to our readers!
The game -- which you might remember from its days as Das Tal -- bills itself as a "social sandbox MMORPG where survival strategy meets skill-based PvP combat," with full-loot open PvP, player-run guilds and cities, and minimal grind.
The Seeker Pack in particular grants full access to the game past the seven-day trial, cannot be combined with other packs, and includes an extra character slot, two name reservations, a 15% fame gain boost, an extra daily challenge slot, unique skins for Tier 0 weapons and armor, dance and taunt animations, and a special avatar and title.

MU Legend, the latest entry in Webzen's MU series, has a brand-new teaser video out this week to promote its second global closed beta test, which runs the very last week of February beginning on the 21st.
"Players can use this time to explore many of the unique features of MU Legend, including the three different levelling systems. MU Legend incorporates three separate levelling systems that enhance play in different ways: EXP Level, obtained by completing quests, dungeons, and defeating enemies, this levelling system automatically improves the character's stats; Soul Level, which acts similarly to EXP Level, except the Soul Level has its very own tree to improve stats and passive abilities; and Account Level, the sum of the Soul Levels of all the characters on the account. This offers permanent boosts for all characters."
Webzen is currently running a Valentine's Day promotion offering players double keys for the beta -- one for themselves and one for their significant others. We've still got a few keys left from our last giveaway too; in the meantime, here's the new teaser trailer.
