Revelation Online teases cross-server features, works on German and French versions

There’s a new sheriff, er, producer in Revelation Online’s territory, and he’s making his mark by outlining his priorities during 2018.

Producer Ty Parr gave a quick rundown of what players should expect to see in the immediate future, starting with open beta anniversary festivities, testing and release of French and German versions of the game, “long awaited cross-server features,” and New Sulan.

Parr also placed a priority on whipping the game into shape: “I think that fixing existing bugs should be one of our highest priorities. I have explicitly requested that the developers spend more time on this task relative to developing new features. We need a stable game environment before we start building towers, castles, and other fancy things in-game.”

The best Massively OP streams of 2017

As captain of our Stream Team, Massively OP’s MJ Guthrie and Larry Everett were joined by Andrew Ross this year to play zillions of games live, some old and some new, providing our community with an interactive look at some of the games in (and around) our genre. I’ve picked out my 10 favorites from the year, from sunsets and interviews to early access MMO sneak-peeks and even a group stream for the launch of one of the year’s biggest MMO expansions. Let’s dig in!

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.

Jukebox Heroes: The 2017 Online Video Game Music Awards

Oh, I can hear all of you out there, mewing with frustration that Massively OP hasn’t yet announced the truly important awards yet this season. Well whine no more, because the 2017 Online VGM Awards are here (here are 2015 and 2016 for educational purposes)!

Not only are these the only awards that you’ll find on MOP that deal with the greatness that is MMO video game music, but these are also the only awards that are chosen solely by me. It’s a total power trip that Bree allows me once a year, and I do not squander it. Sure, perhaps I go overboard with the heralds and the flinging of glitter in the faces of my coworkers, but I need it. Oh how I need it.

Without further ado, here are the six awards that I will be handing out from my throne of speakers and keytars. Get your amazed faces ready now to save you the effort later.

Perfect Ten: 20 upcoming MMOs to watch in 2018

It has become a long-standing tradition as Massively OP and our former site that we like to end the year by creating a list of titles that we anticipate for the coming one. It has always been a devilish list to create, full of loose dates and fast guesswork about which titles will and won’t be releasing during a 12-month window (just read last year’s list to see how spot-on I was).

This year we’re changing things up a bit by tossing out the qualifying factor of “will see a hard launch in 2018.” Instead, I drafted up a list of 20 MMOs that have the potential to do or be really interesting next year, whether that be a launch, a long-anticipated beta test, or some other significant development. Plus, hey, you get 20 for the price of 10, so no complaining now!

As an aside, this list isn’t going to cover some other exciting-looking multiplayer games that are arriving in 2018, like AnthemSea of ThievesThe Crew 2Monster Hunter WorldDayZRed Dead Redemption 2Stardew Valley, Conan Exiles, and State of Decay 2. And you old school fans won’t want to forget that Ultima Online has a new free-to-play option coming this spring.

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.

Battle Bards Episode 110: Acoustic guitar

The Battle Bards are quite familiar with the power of the strummed guitar and lute, knowing that such simple instruments can bring down walls, devastate armies, and dethrone monarchs. But on their off days, acoustic guitars are simply pleasurable to hear and are sprinkled throughout many a-MMO’s soundtrack. It’s six-stringed serenity in the 110th episode of this podcast!

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 iTunesGoogle PlayTuneInPocket CastsStitcher, and Player.FM.

Perfect Ten: The biggest MMO stories of 2017

One thing you can say for the MMO industry: It never ceases to surprise all of us. No matter what predictions we may make at the beginning of a year, by December we will all be proven fools who lack vision and foresight.

Although 2017 isn’t quite over yet, we here at Massively Overpowered wanted to count down the biggest news stories that crossed over into our neck of the woods so far this year. We witnessed controversies and delights, shockers and sadness. We saw launches and shutdowns, expansions and bugs.

So before we move into 2018, let’s take a look at the year that was and remember the biggest stories that dominated headlines.

Revelation Online: ShadowBlade brings Assassin, new class training, and class changes

Do you want to skulk in the shadows in Revelation Online? The new ShadowBlade expansion for the game lets you do just that with the new Assassin class, capable of slipping across enemy lines to unleash death. But even players who want to stick with their current classes will find new things to do with the addition of new class training areas, offering challenges that unlock new skills and abilities for each of the seven classes.

What if you do want to change to a new class but don’t want to level up all over again? The newly added class change feature is just what you asked form, then, allowing you to hop to another class while retaining your level. There’s also a new motorbike mount to unlock through questing; you can see a preview of the bike along with the Assassin class in the trailer down below, or peek at the screenshots for a glimpse of the new training areas.
