Skyforge puts out a call for more community helpers among the playerbase

The player community in Skyforge need people who speak not with the voice of the powers that be, but also not quite with the voice of the average player. People to serve as an important communication bridge between the development team and the average player. To summarize, the team is looking for more Elder Guardians, and they want you.

Assuming, of course, that you are a well-known member of the community with a level head and a history of contribution to the game’s fanbase. If you don’t even play the game, it might be more of a general “you.”

The position of Elder Guardian is strictly a volunteer position, but you do get a special title and the chance to relay communication to and from the development team. It’s sort of like a volunteer group of community managers, in other words. If that sounds like something you’d enjoy doing, feel free to throw your hat into the ring.

Armored Warfare trundles into early access on PlayStation 4

Tragically, the PlayStation 4 suffers from what we in the industry call a “tank gap,” which is a made-up metric that entirely relies upon how many different games you can play in short order that involve you hopping in a tank and blowing things up. But Armored Warfare is here now to shore up that tank gap by giving you… well, itself. It’s playable in early access on the console. You can blow things up with a tank.

Purchasing a founder’s pack gets you a two-week headstart on early access, along with all of the other items included with the founder’s pack. (Special tanks, special currency, you know how founder’s packs work by now.) If you need some screenshots and a trailer to get you properly excited, though, we’ve got those for you as well just past the break. Finally, the tank gap will not go unaddressed.

Skyforge prepares to roll out its achievement system and asks for more ideas

Achievements! They’re how you track your overall progress through the game, see how many bizarre things you’ve accomplished, and sometimes even earn some fun stuff along the way. So that’s all good. And they’re coming to Skyforge soon, so you can start grabbing some achievements and possibly investigating corners of the game you’ve never had reason to dive into. Or you can quantify your accomplishments as a player based on the stuff you’ve already done, one or the other.

But how can you be sure that the achievements will cover everything important? The answer is that you can’t be sure, but you can take part in the new contest to come up with achievements and send them in. Winners get Argents, special headpieces, and the respect of their peers… by having the achievements added into the game when the system goes live. Although we suspect “win the contest to have an achievement added to the game” is not going to win or be added.

Skyforge modifies its ‘indispensable assistant,’ preps a new season of pantheon wars

Memo to Skyforge: It is acceptable to have up to one (1) decimal point in your patch designation. When you call it “Update 0.96.5.25,” it’s too far. We’re genuinely curious if you’re just delivering a URL instead.

Anyway, in Skyforge’s Update 0.96.whatever, the devs made a pretty big change to its so-called Indispensable Assistant: “It now enhances healing orbs and emblems. However, it only pulls them towards you without automatically activating them. Given how impactful the changes are, we have withdrawn the module from everybody and reimbursed its cost.”

In whole number news, the fourth season of the game’s Pantheon Wars is getting ready to kick off on February 4th. One big change-up this season is that restrictions are being lifted in the Central Temple Complex, allowing players to use any and all abilities at their disposal in these fights.

Skyforge hints at 2018 plans after a wild ride in 2017

With releases on Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, Skyforge has had a tremendously busy 2017. The team took a short breather this past week to list its accomplishments over the year, including the addition of the Revenant class, equipment system, and a trip to the moon.

But what’s coming in 2018? According to the producer’s letter, players should expect a bigger focus on PvP improvements, a reworked interface, and cross-platform patches.

“For 2018 we want to find ways to provide the big updates we have planned (so updates that introduce actual content and features, next to the usual bug fixing and monetisation updates) can be released on all platforms at the same time,” the team said. “This will mean that our development team can better focus on the content they are developing right now, rather than having to support three different content states. More focus will mean better content, fewer bugs and faster delivery.”

Revelation Online lets you build a brand-new seaside villa… when you clear the hardest raid

The good news for Revelation Online players is that a new seaside villa is added to the game, and it’s a gorgeous private island with an airy layout that feels like the lap of decadent luxury just looking at it. The bad news? Well, the only way to craft it is to gather materials from the Eternal Chasm raid, also known as the most difficult raid currently in the game. So anyone not taking part in the front edge of content will be straight out of luck.

If you are taking part, though, you can look to this particular villa as a personal goal, and it features plenty of space for new and familiar decorations across the island landscape. Check out screenshots and a video preview just below if you’ve got a heart for real estate, and we can only hope that those of you who will not be able to get this particular house also have characters who don’t like airy seaside mansions in the first place.

Skyforge offers sales, events, and an advent calendar for the winter holiday

In Skyforge, the player characters are deities, and they have to save everyone from everything. That is their lot in life. You’ve no doubt saved people from aliens, saved places from invasion, and saved coupons from being wasted unnecessarily at shopping centers. Now you can also be sure to save Christmas, or the nearest approximation thereof, with the winter events running in the game right now. Attire, boosters, and all the rest await you. (Also snowballs, most likely.)

The game is also running its annual advent calendar, offering daily rewards for players and a larger meta-reward for those who continually check back in. Plus, the game is kicking off sales starting on December 20th, starting with the Knowledge of Enemies sale before moving on to the Hall of Trophies sale and ending with a Celestial Blockbuster sale. (And if you think several of those sound like good band names, well, go start a band.) So there are lots of reasons to feel festive in the game, even if your character Ronald has had less luck with “Ronaldmas” as this year’s holiday.

Skyforge launches a Demonic Dawn on PlayStation 4

Let’s not mince words: You’re going to see lots of updates this month that are all about red suits with white fur linings, snow, green pine trees festooned with ornaments, that sort of stuff. But not in Skyforge on the PlayStation 4, no. There it’s demon time. The game just launched its Demonic Dawn update, and that means fighting demons infected by the sickness out of space, which is also infecting space itself, led by the evil Nihaz.

As is so often the case in Skyforge, you’ll be fighting to push back the demonic invaders on multiple fronts, eventually running through a 10-player instance to take on Nihaz directly and send him and his demonic space-virus from space forces back to where they came from. (Which, again, is space.) Check out a video for the update just below. You might think that all of this space virus stuff is a bit silly, but hey, at least it’s not another update full of reindeer.

Revelation Online encourages you to strip… your gear of enhancements

It is possible that Revelation Online could have used a thesaurus for its latest feature, as “stripping your gear” produces a mental image that is wholly unrelated to what said feature actually involves. See, it’s about stripping enhancements from your gear, not about…

Oh, you’re already on the mailbox. No. Put your boots back on. Can we… can we just talk about this feature? While wearing clothing? Yes, that’s much better, thank you.

See, in a game with multiple item enhancements, you’re often tempted to hold on to everything in the hopes of just upgrading one thing, right? So now you can strip your old gear of experience, Dragonspikes, and Tier Beads all at once. Then you can apply those to new pieces of equipment, ensuring that you still have a reason to upgrade and a reason to not hoard your upgrades.

Although we suppose you can still take off all of your gear if you want to. That’s just not the feature under discussion.
