This week we have stories and videos from Seal Online, Trove, Pokemon Go, Sea of Thieves, Tales of Gaia, Battlerite, War of Rights, PUBG, World of Warcraft, City of Heroes, Will to Live Online, and Prosperous Universe, all waiting for you after the break!
Here at Massively OP, we like to give you a great deal on news, which is why we’re offering this special three-for-one news post on a trio of Asian MMORPGs. Wow! What savings!
Let’s start with Dark and Light, which in addition to having launched on early access last week looks set to spawn a mobile game called Tales of Gaia. This game has been run through the testing circuit this summer and will release for iOS and Android sometime in 2017. Players who pre-register have a shot at grabbing some in-game goodies when it launches.
Moving on to Elsword, an ancient capital is opening up for business. “Travel with the El Search Party as they enter the Water Dragon Sanctum, only to find traces of someone else who entered before them. Who could have been here before the El Search Party?”
Finally over at MapleStory, a crystal rush is going on right now through August 25th, giving players a chance to harvest precious items and gain gobs of experience points. But beware of the Flappy Churmbles, which are no doubt as fierce as their name suggests!
