Wakfu’s newest patch adds in battlefields for PvP conquest

Do you think of Wakfu when you think of games with a solid PvP base? Possibly not. But you might change your tune about that with the game’s new Battlefield system that’s just arrived in the game. Players are tasked with fulfilling a number of objectives in the hopes of leading one nation to victory over the others. It also adds a whole system of territory control to ensure that one nation can really reign over the other four, assuming you’re successful enough.

Not fond of the PvP aspect? You can always stay neutral and possibly enjoy the benefits of the game’s spectator mode, or you can head on a tour through the various balance changes and bug fixes that also fill out the update. But the centerpiece of this particular patch is indeed about fighting between nations, so you’re encouraged to grab your weapons and go to town on those filthy heathens from [INSERT OPPOSING NATION NAME HERE].

GPS mounts and zombies arrive in Dofus’ Towers of the Forgotten

Just call it “Dofus 2.0.”

The unique MMO’s December update is vastly adding onto and overhauling the core gameplay with its Towers of the Forgotten. When the update lands, players will have plenty to do and relearn, including the Lavasmith Dofus, 375 additional spells, more Omega levels, a renovated tactical mode, auto-pathing “GPS” mounts, an overhaul to the monster aggression system, and a storyline that ties into Wakfu’s third season.

Also, there are zombies. Good to know.

“After long plotting in the shadows, the Brotherhood of the Forgotten are now defying the gods in broad daylight,” the studio posted. “The players hold the future of the World of Twelve in their hands, just as Yugo and his friends do in Season 3 of the series Wakfu.”

Wakfu introduces the rage-filled Ouginaks, revamps Enutrof class

Do you ever despair that all MMOs these days seem to contain the same watered-down, trope-encrusted classes and races? Fighter this and Elf that, the standard routine? Then do yourself a favor and head over to Wakfu, which has never heard of a normal name in its life.

The unique strategy MMO is introducing a new class this week called the Ouginak that sounds like a cross between a lovable puppy dog and a slavering werewolf. “Ouginaks are warriors and close-combat specialists,” the team posted. “Drawing on their Rage in fights, they can transform into Were-Ouginaks to harness their primal instincts.”

If that isn’t enough, Wakfu’s massive content update includes a huge overhaul of the Enutrof class, reworked the game’s combat mechanics, “rehabilitated” the Elite Riktus clan, and — what the heck — completely rebalanced all of the rest of the game’s classes. Guess the devs wanted to throw their community a bone?

Perfect Ten: MMO experiments in transmedia synergy

We’re not going to argue that MMORPGs are the dominant form of media entertainment these days, but they do have endurance and a devoted following among gamers. And whenever a crowd of players have been paying into a game for a long time, it will attract the attention and interest of marketers who start wondering what else they could do to siphon off a few more bucks.

Enter “transmedia synergy,” a stupidly awesome term that represents links between two or more forms of media that are connected through the same IP. The thinking here is that fans of one of these forms of entertainment will cross over into the related media and vice-versa, growing an audience together.

Today we’re going to look at 10 experiments in transmedia synergy, for better or for worse, that have attempted to cross over from MMORPG to something else entirely. To make things more challenging, we’re not going to include novels, since we’ve already done that.
