In the west, best known for Elsword.

Exclusive: Elsword’s fourth Elrianode dungeon, El Tower Defense, launches tomorrow – here’s the trailer!

Elsword fans, a huge update is dropping for you tomorrow: The fourth and final dungeon in the Elrianode series, El Tower Defense, is going live on August 23rd. “This is the big lead up to a huge boss fight,” KOG Games promises.

“The crazed Henir Fanatics descend upon the last bastion of Elrianode, the El Tower. As Elsword and the El Search Party throw everything they have at keeping the fanatics at bay, Hennon, the Order’s arrogant leader, has discovered that the El Search Party won’t back down, and they’re putting up the fight of their lives. In a desperate attempt to overpower them, he combines the light and dark El fragments together, turning him into the nightmarish Interdimensional Colossus. For the first time, Elsword has realized that there is nothing left to lose. Chaos and devastation have done nothing more than temper metal and rally their spirits. Now, they go on the offensive and take the fight to the enemy.”

We’ve got the exclusive dungeon trailer down below!

Touching base with Dark and Light mobile, Elsword, and MapleStory

Here at Massively OP, we like to give you a great deal on news, which is why we’re offering this special three-for-one news post on a trio of Asian MMORPGs. Wow! What savings!

Let’s start with Dark and Light, which in addition to having launched on early access last week looks set to spawn a mobile game called Tales of Gaia. This game has been run through the testing circuit this summer and will release for iOS and Android sometime in 2017. Players who pre-register have a shot at grabbing some in-game goodies when it launches.

Moving on to Elsword, an ancient capital is opening up for business. “Travel with the El Search Party as they enter the Water Dragon Sanctum, only to find traces of someone else who entered before them. Who could have been here before the El Search Party?”

Finally over at MapleStory, a crystal rush is going on right now through August 25th, giving players a chance to harvest precious items and gain gobs of experience points. But beware of the Flappy Churmbles, which are no doubt as fierce as their name suggests!

Exclusive: Elsword previews a new hardcore solo endgame dungeon

The western version of side-scrolly hack-‘n’-slasher Elsword is about to get a long-awaited feature from the Korean version: a challenging endgame dungeon known as Add’s Energy Fusion Theory Dungeon. Oh yeah, and it’s solo-only. Oh yeah, and it’s a way for players to get some of the best weapons in the game. Solo. Did you get the solo part? It caused a combination of concerns and cheering when it released in Korea last year, but the game didn’t burn down, so it turns out that soloers aren’t ruining everything after all and it’s not actually codified in MMORPG law that all the good stuff be reserved for raiders. Who knew?

Says KOG Games,

“Add’s Energy Fusion Theory Dungeon is Elsword’s ultimate, solo, end-game dungeon experience. This dungeon is not for the faint of heart! However, this solo-only (no co-op), hardcore dungeon may be brutal, but the battle is worth it. The loot is some of the best in the game. What are you willing to sacrifice to obtain the most powerful weapon in the game?”

Check out the exclusive video below!

Paragon introduces K-pop-themed Shinbi hero

Epic’s MOBA Paragon revealed a new playable hero this week: Shinbi, a K-pop themed melee superstar who’s possibly a reference to pop star ShinB from GFRIEND, which incidentally hit MMO news this week once already thanks to its Valentine promo for Elsword. My apophenia, ahhhh!

“A world famous pop star known for summoning Spirit Wolves during her performances, Shinbi is a deceptive melee assassin who uses her wolves to dazzle her enemies and rip them to shreds in battle,” says Epic, rattling off her themey skills: Rushing Beat, Line Tempo, Circle Rhythm, and All-Kill!. She officially launches February 21st.

Kotaku has a grand roundup of some of the criticisms of the character already, which basically boil down to melee sucks, why more girls though, what’s K-pop, D.Va clone, and this is totally breaking my immersions in world lore we don’t know anything about. So, you know. The usual.

Elsword teases a new job path for the mysterious Ain

The folks behind sidescrolly action-MMO Elsword have been teasing a brand-new job path for playable character Ain, who’s been live in the western edition of the game only since December. Ain’s the “mysterious man who appeared before the El Search Party while looking for the El Shard” and “introduced himself as a priest serving the Goddess and offered to help them find the stolen Ruben El Shard,” according to the game’s lore.

We won’t spoil it for you — that’s what trailer down below is for. Enjoy!

HeroWarz plans a year-long shutdown

Here is something you don’t see every day: An MMO that is voluntarily taking itself offline for a year to rework the title from the ground up (yet this does sound familiar…).

HeroWarz, the hack-and-slash title from KOG Games, announced this week that it will be going offline as of March 26th for what the studio is calling “The Pause of HeroWarz.” The team is apparently not content with the game’s current state and claims that it needs put HeroWarz on haitus for a revamp of non-specified features.

Until this “pause” players can enjoy ongoing boosts and check out some sweeping balance changes that may herald some of the reworkings to come. KOG Games said that it will stay in communication with fans during the downtime period and will hopefully relaunch HeroWarz in early 2018.
