Enter to win a Neverwinter gorgon mount on Xbox One and PS4 from PWE and MOP

To celebrate the arrival of the Tomb of Annhilation expansion for Neverwinter on console, PWE has granted Massively OP 100 Firesoul Gorgon mount keys to give away to our readers– 50 apiece for PlayStation 4 (Teal Stained Gorgon) and Xbox One (Vert Stained Gorgon). Quick, to your color wheels!

“Gorgons are dangerous and hard to control, but this beast unique to the jungles of Chult has been tamed and its metallic scales have been stained bright green and teal. These uncommon mounts are ready to charge through the dangers of Chult with plumes of smoke billowing from their nostrils.”

Both grant +50 movement speed and include two insignia slots. The codes can be redeemed only once per account and expire at the end of 2017, and the mounts are bind-on-pickup. Critically, these codes are redeemable on console only in the regions as outlined below, so if you’re a PC person, you can skip this one!

Snag a Hand of the Gods: SMITE Tactics Norse pack from Hi-Rez and Massively OP in honor of its Steam launch today!

Hi-Rez’s turn-based strategy card game Hand of the Gods — you might recall it better as SMITE Tactics or even its internal name, Hotgods — is officially coming on Steam. Today, in fact: It arrives on the platform following patch elements much requested by players, says the studio, “including the refinement of Combat Logs and the new additions of Clans and a Deck Tracker.” Yesterday, we wrote about some of the new pantheons coming in the future too; the studio has further elaborated on new cards and the Japanese and Hindu pantheons.

In the meantime, however, we’ve got some free stuff for you courtesy of Hi-Rez: keys for the Norse starter pack:

“The Norse Starter Pack will grant the 3 Norse cards Dagaz, Gift of Munin, and Ratatoskr. These codes can be redeemed in-game and are for PC only. These codes can be redeemed only once per account, so if someone has already redeemed a code previously, they can’t redeem it again on the same account. (Note: This pantheon starter packs is different from the main starter pack in the Steam release that grants the Ra skin.)”

AdventureQuest 3D revamps the Greenguard Forest

Even as AdventureQuest 3D continues to press forward with its development, it hasn’t resisted looking back to see what older content could use a dose of revise-and-revamp. Next on the slate? Greenguard Forest.

The Greenguard is receiving better visuals and a heftier dose of storytelling. “We took care to get rid of the grind in this new adventure, and then we added an abundance of nostalgic and iconic AdventureQuest stuff. Because this is certainly the right place for it,” the developers said.

The team is frantically testing the new Greenguard before Hurricane Irma hits Florida (and the game’s studios) this weekend. As Irma arrives, the AQ3D team will be hosting a weekend sale and posting a skeleton crew at the studio to hopefully keep things running. Stay safe, you crazy game devs!

World of Warcraft slashes Legion’s price ahead of 7.3 Shadows of Argus

Displaying a level of pomp and hype that is normally reserved for an MMO expansion or perhaps the impending visit from the Queen of England, World of Warcraft is going all-out with the release of this week’s Patch 7.3: Shadows of Argus.

Just take a look at this landing page for the patch and revel in the grand finale for the current expansion cycle. In addition to the flashy presentation, there’s a pretty good overview of what Shadows of Argus contains as well as videos and screenshots.

The patch begins its multi-stage rollout tomorrow, August 29th. If you’re feeling called to come back to the game because of it after, say, missing this entire expansion so far, the studio is prepared to make you a tempting offer. Legion’s price has been slashed down to $30 for the standard edition and $50 for the digital deluxe edition. And remember, both of those editions includes a level 100 character boost, which is normally $60 in the store.

Final Fantasy XIV synergizes with Dominos and Netflix, throws a huge Mog Station sale

Like a mighty team of warriors coming together for a final boss battle, Square Enix has partnered up with some interesting companions to spread the word of Final Fantasy XIV.

Dominos has a new deal in Australia in which you can order a “Pizza and Gaming Bundle” that includes three pizzas, garlic bread, a drink, and a download of FFXIV and its two expansions, all for $50. That should fuel your gaming caloric needs for the first few days, at least.

Over at Netflix, there’s a new series called “Dad of Light” in which a Japanese father and son end up bonding together over the MMORPG. Supposedly it’s based on a true story, and let us hope that story is more interesting than watching two people sit in front of a screen for a season. I mean, we have Twitch for that already.

If pizza and TV isn’t your thing, how about discounted deals on in-game goodies? To celebrate its 10 million players milestone, FFXIV is putting a large chunk of the Mog Station on sale over the next month. Everything except Tales of Adventure boosts and dyes will be 30% off through September 26th.

Earn a new mount in TERA by leveling a new character in Kritika Online

There are, presumably, more people enjoying TERA right now than enjoying Kritika Online. That’s sort of to be expected; the former is an established game, the latter is new. So it’s quite possible that you’re playing TERA and haven’t yet played Kritika… but what if the developers enticed you with a new mount you can earn just by leveling up in Kritika several times? Until August 31st you can earn one of two mounts in TERA just by hitting level 20 or 50 in Kritika during the promotional period.

It’s worth noting that players who have already hit level 20 or 50 will have to start a new character to earn these benefits; an existing character doesn’t count. But other than that, it may be the ideal promo for anyone looking to ride a love wolf in TERA, since all you have to do is play another game for a bit to get the mount for free, including a version that restores your health as you ride. So if you haven’t tried the game, consider this your motivation for getting in on it.

Gigantic challenges its community to deal 2.1 billion damage to Guardians in a week

When trying to cause players to behave a certain way, designers have a variety of tools available. You have to carefully balance game mechanics to ensure that players are gently steered toward the right way of play while also rewarding players who do the right thing. So how, for example, do you make sure that players in Gigantic know to damage the Guardians in a match?

Well, you can always just run a community event asking players to deal billions of cumulative damage for a couple of weeks. That works.

RIFT calls players back with a late-summer giveaway

It might be the perfect time to take that vacation to Telara that you’ve been talking about for ages!

RIFT is currently running a login promotion to give away free goodies every day from now through August 15th. These include a pair of raid item upgrades, individual reward charges, a glimmering bag of sparkles, and a pretty snazzy lightning costume cape.

Things are hopping right now in this fantasy MMO. Summerfest is raging (with new rewards) through August 11th, and last month the team pushed out its Celestial Storm update that contained a brand-new zone and four additional Primalist souls.

Final Fantasy XI offers discounts and majorly redesigns Monk

Players of the most punch-drunk class in Final Fantasy XI will be learning to play a wildly different job with the game’s August version update. Boost, for example, now has a 60-second cooldown and automatically affects your next autoattack or weaponskill. Chakra restores more health and has a three-minute cooldown instead of five minutes. Dodge and Focus have both had their recasts decreased significantly and their bonuses improved. It’s going to be a pretty significant set of changes for players to deal with, even without new Superior 2 equipment and the incoming Ambuscade changes.

But perhaps none of this means anything to you, as you’ve never actually played the game. Good news, then; the game is offering people a discount to get into the full game through most of August. From August 9th through August 31st, you can pick up the full collection for just $10, allowing you to see everything on offer in Vana’diel at a third of the usual price. That’s a pretty nice discount. Server transfers are also discounted, so players can jump servers to play together if they so desire.
