PWE posts summer event schedule for Neverwinter, Star Trek Online, Champions Online

“Sun’s out, guns out,” a PWE press blast quipped today — all because the MMO studio is kicking off a ton of summer events across its range of games, including some of the more relatively obscure ones.

In Neverwinter, for example, the titular city will be festooned in glitter for the 4th anniversary Protector’s Jubilee. Jubilee unicorns were mentioned. That’s June 20-27, while July will see the summer festival with feasts, contests, and snail mounts.

Battle Bards Episode 98: Perfect World International

Perfect World — it’s not just a massive games publisher, it’s also an MMORPG! The team at Battle Bards timidly tiptoe into this unknown soundtrack, not sure of what may lurk around the next bend. Is it a hot pile of suck? An undiscovered gem? Forgettable fluff? We’re not going to tell you in the intro here; you’ll have to listen along with us to find out!

Battle Bards is a bi-weekly podcast that alternates between examining a single MMO’s soundtrack and exploring music tracks revolving around a theme. MOP’s Justin co-hosts with bloggers Steff and Syl. The cast is available on iTunes, Google Play, TuneInPocket CastsStitcher, and Player.FM.

Perfect World Entertainment integrates Twitch streaming into its Arc launcher

If you want to play Neverwinter, Gigantic, Star Trek Online, or maybe even Perfect World International, you’re probably familiar with Perfect World Entertainment‘s Arc client. It’s the publisher’s one-stop-load-everything launcher, you know how that goes. And now it’s going to make it that much easier for everyone to stream all of those games with the new Twitch integration built right into Arc.

The client will allow you to link up with your existing Twitch account, at which point you can start streaming (or stop) right from the Arc overlay. It also means slightly less fiddling around with peripheral software and other add-ons while you’re trying to keep people entertained and presumably not die, so it’s good news for everyone who wants to be watched while they play. And possibly judged. Do note that this feature is currently in beta, so there are quite possibly some bugs to be encountered along the way.

Here’s the schedule for all of PWE’s Christmas events

Perfect World wasted no time in pulling the trigger on its crop of winter holiday events now that December is here. The MMORPG publisher sent out its list of all of the events, both current and upcoming, for its library of titles.

It’s important to note that while some of the events run for an entire month, others are only here for a couple of short weeks. If you’re the type of player who hops between games during the holidays to take advantage of the many rewards available, you’ll want to use this schedule to help you plan your attack.

Check out the full rundown after the jump!

Perfect World International kicks off anniversary celebrations with bartering

Perfect World International has been running for eight years now, which is a pretty impressive milestone. The somewhat eponymous team at Perfect World Entertainment intends to celebrate appropriately, and the first celebration event takes advantage of players with eight years of no-longer-wanted stuff kicking around with a brand-new barter event. Threads will be started in the official forum, and you will bid on the items contained… through barter.

Players can barter with any items on their characters, even ones that normally could not be traded. All bids must meet a minimum value to be accepted and must be accompanied by a character name and server; winning bids will have the bid items removed from the character’s inventory and replaced with the prize during server maintenance. If you’ve got a whole bunch of rare items that you don’t want, here’s a chance for you to turn those items into something far more desirable.

Perfect World International lands on Steam with new player housing system

Perfect World is intent this week on rolling out the remainder of its MMORPG catalogue to Steam. Earlier this year, we saw Swordsman take up a place on Valve’s platform; this week, it’s Perfect World International. Coinciding with the Steam launch is Elysium, the game’s 12th (!) expansion, which includes a new housing system for level 90+ characters, a new 10-man raid, new gear, and new mounts.

Elysium’s new Homestead System invites players with characters Level 90 and above to build and customize their very own homes. Hidden in a realm isolated from the rest of the Perfect World lies an exquisite mansion, waiting to be claimed. Players can choose from hundreds of different options to design and furnish these grand structures. PWI’s new Homesteads also give players a new way to interact with one another, as they are able make trades, craft items, post jobs and generate resources.

Enjoy the trailer below!
