Skyforge’s Revenant update is live today

It’s time for a new sort of death to take to the fight with the latest Skyforge update. The Revenant is a class that brings death, downright revels in it, and stands apart from good and evil as a testament to simply bringing death to all around it. That’s why a Revenant is supposed to wear lots of bones and stuff, see. Because death is scary.

Whether or not the addition of the Revenant counts as an expansion is left as an exercise for the reader, although the staff behind the game seems to feel it is. It’s live today regardless, so there’s no need to quibble over words, is there?

Any jokes about how the Revenant looks like a rejected mascot for a heavy metal album can be supplanted by admiring the life-draining mechanics and abilities of the class, which you can check out in the trailer just below. It’s another option for players in the ever-expanding class lineup for the game, so get ready to start dealing out new sorts of death today and drain the very life of those around you.

Revelation Online adds in a new level cap and new bosses in the Uprising update

It’s time to get better than you ever thought possible in the latest Revelation Online patch. Heck, better than it was possible to get, even; the patch raises the game’s level cap to 79, allowing you to reach new heights of power even as you push your way through a new dungeon floor in the Mech Citadel on its Scour Dungeon version. There’s also the new Altar of Swords dungeon, the new Azure Dragon Guild tournament, easier soul grid unlocks… lots of nifty stuff, in short.

The patch also contains some fun flying sword mounts for being among the first to clear this new content, so if you’ve got a crew ready to take on these challenges you could be richly rewarded. (If you’d rather fly under your own power, we do still have dragon wings.) Combine that with a 24-hour sale in the game’s store, and you should be able to get at least a few nice rewards for yourself with the patch launch.

Skyforge takes a first look at the lore and abilities of the Revenant

Hello, everyone! Meet your new friend in Skyforge, the Revenant! He brought you death! No, that’s not a bad thing or a threat; these guys think death is super awesome in the lore. You’d think that they would dress up more like happy-go-lucky dorks gleefully dispensing death if that were the case, but you can read through the whole lore dispatch yourself and maybe find out why they’re all trying to look scary. Maybe it’s a cultural thing.

For those of you who don’t care about the lore, you’ll be happy to learn a little bit about the class mechanics with a preview of its first ability, Siphon. No, it’s not just a drain; it drains life and drags the target to the Revenant, then ends with a knockdown and a vulnerability debuff. The class will be available on September 19th, with pre-order packs available on September 6th. Then you can happily dispense death to all of your friends, although you might want to explain that you’re being helpful first. It might not be obvious.

Cloud Pirates is sunsetting at the end of September

Aw, damnit. My.com is giving up on its Allods-themed Cloud Pirates MOBA already. The company doesn’t say why, but given the successes of its other titles, we’re guessing it’s more about playerbase size in a bloated MOBA market than the company’s overall revenues, an assumption backed up by its low numbers on Steam.

“We are sad to announce that Cloud Pirates will be closing the servers on September 29,” says the studio. “It’s been wonderful sailing the turbulent skies with you, Captains, and we’d like to thank you for all your support.”

Beginning today and lasting until serverdown on September 29th, players will see doubled experience gain, virtually free in-game and cash-shop items, and free Steam DLC. You can also claim refunds on everything you bought since July 12th, convert your cash-shop currency to some of My.com’s other games (Skyforge, Armored Warfare, and Revelation Online), and enjoy the game’s latest patch, which rolls out today in farewell and contains custom matches, a new progressive PvE mode, and cash-shop currency as rewards for daily matches.

Skyforge’s The Revenant update introduces its 15th class in September

We’re taking a break from our regularly scheduled coverage of the absurd number of MMOs and patches launching today to talk about an update that won’t be out for a few more weeks, so you needn’t stress over it just yet. That’d be Skyforge’s The Revenant, which lands on September 19th and includes a new playable class — its 15th, in fact. The class is called the Revenant. Who saw that coming?

“Locked away for centuries, these axe wielding Immortals walk the soil of Aelion once more. The Revenant are ancient, mighty warlords, decimating their foes with overwhelming force. Accidently awoken and faced with the newfound invaders of Aelion, these harbingers of death will seek retribution from their invading prey. Siphoning the life from their enemies through shadow magic or decimating them with sharp edge of their axe, their adversaries will never stand a chance. The Revenant don’t solemnly strive to silence their prey, but their goal is to find a worthy challenger that will best them in ultimate combat. This pursuit is what keeps the Revenant pushing themselves to their very limit and makes them an absolute force to be reckoned with.”

Check out the new trailer below!

Warface declares a Blackout, activates a new west coast server

You and your team are stranded in the midst of a desert storm. As you squint through the murky atmosphere, enemy cyborgs (as is their wont) swarm and attack. Will you survive or be buried in the sand with no one to remember your name?

This terrifying scenario is brought to you by Warface, which released its Blackout special operation into the game today. The team also raised the level cap to 85 and added new weapon skins for the surviving players to pursue.

Warface’s popularity has prompted My.com to activate another regional server, this one located in California for west coast players. But the publisher isn’t satisfied with what it has, and is rolling out a refer-a-friend program to recruit more troops.

Revelation Online outlines the lore-hunting Scene Chronicle feature

Are you fascinated by the lore of the various locations in Revelation Online? In the event that you don’t care about that at all, are you a big fan of getting to pick up valuable items and fame just by filling in some check marks? The Scene Chronicle feature caters to both sorts of players, giving you a chance to look behind the scenes of the game’s area lore while also giving you plenty of fame and potential other rewards along the way.

The feature allows you to select from the various cities to pick out both the best spots of treasure hunting and the most interesting locales, while those not yet unlocked will require you to interact with NPCs (and the guide will helpfully point you in the right direction). Successfully filling in entries will award fame for the respective region as well as things like leaderboards and possible items. So go head on your quests, whether you want to learn more about the realm or just pick up some easy fame. We won’t judge either way.

Beginning today, “early signups” are open; they’ll snag you a free limited-edition LAV-150 90 wheeled tank destroyer for the PS4 edition. This is a free-to-play game, however. Announcement trailer + your eyeballs = below.
