Hey, Skyforge players! Are you having fun with the newly launched Revenant class?

Skyforge’s new equipment system puts the power of stats in your hands

Here’s a think piece: Why do so many MMORPGs make gear stats needlessly complex and obtuse? What might make sense to a developer who lives and breathes these numbers is headache-inducing calculus to players.

Enter Skyforge and its new equipment system, which is attempting to make gear both understandable and adaptable to the needs of each gamer. Each piece of gear has a certain number of main and secondary properties that it can equip (such as base damage or serial kill). These properties can be swapped for ones that a player desires more, allowing for hands-on customization.

Even better, gear can be leveled up in quality, from unusual up to mythic, by increasing its “integrity” meter. Each time the meter fills up, the gear is bumped up to a new tier and adds new property slots to utilize. Simple enough? Hopefully!

Farewell to My.com MOBA Cloud Pirates, which sunsetted over the weekend

If you blinked, you missed it: Cloud Pirates shut down over the weekend.

My.com announced that it was giving up on its Allods-themed Cloud Pirates MOBA back at the end of August; the game’s last day was technically September 29th, although when we tried to stream it Friday, it had already shut down, frustrating our farewell effort.

At the time, My.com didn’t explain the reason for the sunset, but we assumed it was simply a matter of its low numbers on Steam. The game’s western port had only been known for a year; it hit early access in February, then launched in April.

Our condolences to those affected by the shutdown. There’s a little bit of chatter on the game’s subreddit, including a screenshot gallery of the last days of the game, plus check out Last Level Press’ final video of the game.

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.

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!
