One Shots: Tour guides

It turns out that MMORPG players really don’t need much prompting to go out and take a bazillion screenshots of their favorite in-game zones, as evidenced by the avalanche of photos generated by last week’s challenge.

SmugglerSteel kicks us off this this neon nightmare: “I knew exactly where I needed to tour in SWTOR for this one. I will always remember my first trip to Nar Shaddaa. I was blown away away by the color and aesthetic. I always thought it had a very Bladerunner inspired feel, yet still did it’s own thing.”

Like any good casino, Nar Shaddaa is designed so that players can never figure out how to leave. SmugglerSteel forwards his mail there now.

Revelation Online invites you to battle for glory in its new colosseum

It was teased, but now it’s truly here. Revelation Online is introducing the colosseum, and its world will never be the same. Specifically, it will be far more violent. Seriously, it’s a place for violent gladiatorial contests; that is really violent. Also, it’s a place where you can compete for valuable prizes as part of an ever-expanding event in the game.

That one is probably going to be more resonant for individual players. The violence is kind of de rigueur at this point.

Players will earn a Merit Plate just for signing up to take part, and winning matches in the colosseum will bring you closer to rewards for being the best of the best. If you’re not the best, though… well, you’ll still get plenty out of it, as just participating earns points which go toward PvP ranks and associated rewards. So it’s worth it to strive, even if you aren’t very good at first.

Revelation Online is opening a new EU fresh start server today as First Contact launches

Gosh, isn’t it nice to have a fresh server to start on? No old connections, no old animosities, no problems to worry about. It’s like a fresh playground to just enjoy the game before you go back to making the exact same mistakes that made you long for a fresh start in the first place. Now you too can experience that when Revelation Online launches an EU fresh start server on March 22nd – today. Which just so happens to be launch day for the game’s latest update, First Contact, which chiefly focuses on PvP upgrades and modes.

As always, the draw for the new server is that everyone starts new on a level playing field, with no existing characters to come in and muck things up. So, depending on how many people are willing to sacrifice sleep and careers for relentless leveling, there will be only a handful of max-level characters for the first week or so. If this is the sort of server you’re looking for, keep your eyes peeled for Emollion (the new server) when it opens up.

Revelation Online announces PvP-centric First Contact expansion

Just as it turns a year old here in the west, Revelation Online is announcing a new expansion called First Contact. PvP players of all stripes, this one’s for you.

“The cross-server feature of the update allows players the opportunity to partake in ruthless arena battles and battlegrounds side by side with players from their server as well as a cross-server auction house that is accessible to all,” My.com’s PR says. Cross-server modes will function for multiple modes, including small-scale arenas, 10v10 Darkwood Vale, 20v20 Iron Precipice Blitz, 30v30 Machinist’s Gauntlet, and guild tourneys.

And in addition to localizing for French and German, “My.com will open up a brand-new server, open to all, so players can forge new friendships, create new bonds, and perhaps even spark a few competitive rivalries!”

A date for the update isn’t given; it just says “soon.” Check out the new images and trailer down below!

Revelation Online dishes out birthday presents on its one-year anniversary

It has already been a full year since the release of Revelation Online in the west on March 6th, 2017, and the game is throwing a birthday celebration with events running through most of the month.

From today through the 16th, players will receive special daily login rewards, including a little whale pendant on the 11th. Then there’s the anniversary forecast event from the 12th through the 19th that features activities paying out in “forecast discs,” followed by free anniversary fortune eggs handed out from the 19th through the 26th. Free stuff, you can’t complain, right?

“We’d like to say a big thank you to our community for sticking with us through thick and thin,” said the team. “The first year of Revelation Online has certainly been a rollercoaster, but we still had plenty of positive moments throughout the last year, which we hope to continue on throughout 2018 and beyond.”

Revelation Online shows off its 20v20 Iron Precipice Blitz map

The newest battlefield in Revelation Online is going to pit you against 20 other people! You’ll have 19 allies yourself, of course, but with your luck none of them are going to be in the same time zone as you while you try to defend a resource point against the entire enemy team. Yes, the Iron Precipice Blitz will ask players to claim resource points while fending off enemy attacks, and victorious teams can walk away with plenty of medals and Army Coins.

Five resource points are scattered throughout the map, and the longer your team controls them, the more resources you generate. The first team to reach 1,000 resources wins the map, so you’ll have to take and hold several points at once to ensure victory. Players can take part in this battlefield Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, so if you’re eager to take on a large-scale conflict, today is the day.

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.”
