Nexon posts strong Q1 2018 results, Final Fantasy XI mobile screens leaked

Nexon posted a strong first quarter in 2018, with its earnings call reporting that the game publisher raked in $827M in revenue (a 21% year-over-year increase). The company did most of its business on PC (84%), although mobile (16%) continues to be a significant factor in its success.

Most of Nexon’s focus continues to remain in the east, as both China (67%) and Korea (22%) pull in a vast majority of its earnings. The company singled out the the performance of Dungeon and Fighter, MapleStory, and Durango: Wild Lands for praise.

Coming down the pipeline in North America this year and beyond is MapleStory 2, Durango, MapleStory M, and Final Fantasy XI Mobile. Speaking of the mobile version of FFXI, purported screens were leaked on Reddit that showed this still-beautiful game in action.

No word on when Fortnite will be arriving for Android, but the game is getting an Avengers: Infinity War promotion

Won’t you help Android users sneak out of work or class with their phones to play Fortnite? Right now, you can play the game on consoles, on PC, or on iOS devices, but the game’s Android version has gotten no firm announcements about when it’s arriving. That means that playing the game on the go is simply not possible for some phone owners. Please, donate your programming expertise so that everyone can enjoy the fine art of blowing other people up in order to win the game.

Of course, just losing a match shouldn’t be fun, but a recent article dissects why the game’s Battle Pass structure ensures that even losses and free players get to feel as if progress is made. If that entices you to play on a platform other than Android, though, you should be cautious of new scams centered around the game; there’s no surer way to have scams surface than by getting popular, after all.

Riders of Icarus restarts development, but Icarus Mobile is likely doomed

Hope you weren’t holding out any great hope for Icarus Mobile, the portable spin-off of Nexon’s Riders of Icarus. MMO Culture is reporting that the contract for the upcoming mobile title looks like it will be canceled very soon, leaving the title’s continued existence in doubt.

However, take solace in the fact that the main MMO endures. In fact, the dev team just started talking about the future of the title after nearly a year of stalled development. Plans for 2018 include special MacBain merchants, improvements to the Tempering System, a world cup event, a party mode for Ellora’s spire, and the opening of the region of Turimnan sometime around August.

“The development has halted for Icarus for almost a year, as many of you have noticed, due to unforeseen circumstances, but rest assured that starting from now, the direction of the development for the game will improve gradually in the coming months so as to not disappoint everyone that has continued to wait and support us,” the team posted.

Perfect World Mobile takes to the skies

Perfect World perhaps doesn’t get the recognition and popularity in the west that it enjoys overseas, but this franchise may get another shot at glory when the mobile edition arrives on the scene.

PWE just announced the creation of Perfect World Mobile, a fantasy MMO based in the same world and using many of the same races as its bigger sibling. MMO Culture confirmed that there are six races, although many of the other details have yet to be unveiled. One thing we do know is that the title is going to have an aerial focus, with combat in flight a possibility. That will be interesting to see how it works on a smaller screen with touch controls.

This mobile title is scheduled to come out later in 2018. Check out the teaser trailers below!

MU Origin patch 2.4 adds new corps and accompanying wars between them

Any MU Origin players who want to be stronger are going to need to start fighting other players to do so. But not in small-scale skirmishes, no. The latest update for the game adds in the new corps mechanic, allowing four guilds to combine themselves into one mega-guild known as a corps. And the four best corps will get to compete in weekly corps wars for dominance of various spots of land, which is probably very exciting for those stretches of land. They get to be very important for a bit.

This is also exciting for players, as leveling up through this system allows access to the new Hallow benefits collected through corps wars or territory collection. Collect Hallow, strengthen your character, make use of new tricks like preventing your opponents from using their special stats. You can play the update now on your mobile device of choice, and you can get a feel for what’s involved by checking out the trailer just below.

Old School RuneScape starts mobile beta testing

The first wave of invites have been sent out for Old School RuneScape’s mobile closed beta, and the test has begun.

While both versions of RuneScape will eventually come to mobile, it’s the 2007-era Old School RuneScape that is going to launch first. With 5,431 players invited into the CBT, it’s good to see movement on this front. Jagex said that the title will come to mobile devices some time in 2018.

“The appetite for #OSRSMobile is extreme,” the studio said, “and we’re quite keen to make sure that you know what to expect from us. We’ll be collating feedback, and distributing surveys to the testers, over the week of the test. We’ll then look to report our findings to you as soon as possible. We’ll have a better idea of what to expect next in terms of testing, and we’ll keep you informed as and when we’re able.”

Blizzard isn’t going to bring back World of Warcraft’s remote auction house any time soon

With just a couple of days to go before Blizzard disables the remote auction house app for World of Warcraft, the studio pretty much has extinguished all hope that users will see it return.

“The web/mobile auction had a lot more issues with keeping it up than it was really worth for the small amount of players that actually used it,” a Blizzard CM said on the forums. “Trying to tackle and fix those issues (for transparency the majority were just exploits) just takes dev time away from working on new content. While it may change in the future, we currently at this time aren’t planning to bring this back.”

The CM said that the auction house itself is in need for some updates but that there are no plans right now for such improvements.


Dead Rivals infects mobile with its zombie MMOARPG

Need a quick zombie fix on your mobile device but still crave the MMORPG approach? Gameloft, no stranger to whipping up knockoffs of hit video games, may have the answer for you in its newly launched Dead Rivals.

Dead Rivals marries action, a post-apocalyptic landscape, and MMORPG-style quests for an interesting experience. While it only has three classes, the pocket title does offer up base building, PvP, NPC factions, and a whole lot of crafting.

“Gameloft’s new title is the first of its kind, a mobile zombie MMO. It blends fast-paced action and classic MMORPG adventuring to create a thrilling, undead action RPG,” the studio said. “Survival is a constant struggle. So, to increase your chances in both PVP and PVE challenges, you must research, craft, and improve facilities and your character’s unique class weapons.”

The game is available on iOS, Android, and PC. Check out the trailer after the break!

Classic text MMO Torn is coming to Android devices next month

Back in the ancient era of 2016, we pointed you toward a 14-year-old text-based MMORPG called Torn (formerly Torn City). The title gave players the opportunity to be virtual thugs engaging in a life of glamorous crime.

The browser game is surprisingly popular for a text-based MMO, with over 20,000 users logging in each day and a total player count of two million. That count should go up when Torn arrives on Android devices next month.

The cross-platform MMO will launch on Android May 8th. Maybe this will lure you in to the racket: “In Torn, you’ll rise through the ranks of Torn City’s criminal underworld as you form alliances with players worldwide, trade for better resources and take part in a wealth of gang-related activities, such as heists and robberies.”
