Temtem opens a new weekly endgame location and makes Luma critters more rare

The world of Temtem has opened a new location in its latest patch that should be pretty enticing to those who are at the top end and seeking the right critters for their team. Introducing the Saipark, a new natural preserve on the game's archipelago and the headline feature of version 0.5.12. The Saipark will have two different...

The Stream Team: Investigating Valentine’s Day in Secret World Legends

What better Valentine's gift for Massively OP's MJ than adding a new mission in her favorite game? And her favorite kind of mission at that! It was a very happy surprise to hear that Secret World Legends has added a new investigation mission for Valentine's. Of course MJ has to jump in and experience this new event. Her...

Warframe highlights new Protea Frame, Scarlet Spear op, and Tennocon 2020’s date

Now that Kuva Liches are a little bit better than they were previously (presumably), Warframe can now focus on what's next, which includes a couple of sizeable updates and this year's Tennocon fan convention. Basically, there's a fair bit for fans of the online action shooter to look forward to. The latest devstream granted players a look...

The Survivalist: Is Conan Exiles done with free DLC – or are we getting a true expansion?

While Funcom's latest investor note focused mainly on DUNE, there was a little tidbit of big import nestled in there about the current IP-based survival game, Conan Exiles. Trust me, that little aside did not slip past me; I saved it to discuss more fully now because that one little line can have big implications for my...
Doom approaches.

Blackwing Lair’s first kill in WoW Classic happened less than an hour after the raid went live

Technically, there was another race for a world first clear last week in World of Warcraft, specifically in WoW Classic with the opening of Blackwing Lair. Unfortunately for the onlookers, this one was over almost as fast as it began. Two guilds from the game's European cluster, Calamity and Progress, both downed Nefarian at 42 minutes...
Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow.

Wisdom of Nym: That’s a very large fan festival you got there, Final Fantasy XIV

Odd as it might be to say, I don't really have a lot more to say just yet about tomorrow's patch for Final Fantasy XIV. No doubt I will have more to say once it's actually here and all, but right now... well, we've got those patch notes, we can read them, there's not much to do but...

Saga of Lucimia may be moving toward a hybrid business model

While the topic of lockboxes, cash shops, and business models isn't anything new -- which is an understatement -- Saga of Lucimia's team is exploring these issues as it deeply contemplates how it is going to monetize the game. This suggests that the team is softening up on its subscription-only stance as it mulls a possible hybrid...

Not So Massively: Imagining a true MMORTS

MMOs and RTS are two of the genres of game I play the most. Given that, you'd think I'd be a big fan of MMORTS titles, but I've yet to encounter one that seems even a little appealing to me. Every one I've seen seems very low budget and uninspiring. The closest I've come is Kingdom Under Fire...

Pearl Abyss had a strong Q4 2019, but CCP’s EVE-spinoff Project Nova is officially canceled

South Korean gaming giant Pearl Abyss is on the rise once again - and unlike many of its mobile-focused competitors, PC MMORPGs and the west accounts for a respectable chunk of its potency. Its Q4 2019 investor report shows an 11% dip in revenues since Q3, but a 20% jump year over year (that is, compared to Q4...

Acti-Blizzard games vanished from GeForce NOW over a ‘misunderstanding,’ Nvidia says

Last week we reported on the sudden removal of Activision-Blizzard titles from GeForce Now, the streamed games service offered by Nvidia, with barely an explanation other than a request from ActiBlizz to do so. We now have a better understanding of why the request was made: It was due to an apparent error on Nvidia's part. Apparently, because...

PlanetSide 2’s Escalation update is pushed back to February 26

It would seem that reaction to the recent PTS build of PlanetSide 2's Escalation update is forcing Rogue Planet Games to work a bit longer and stick the landing. Rogue Planet head Andy Sites has confirmed that Escalation will have to wait a little longer to come out, pushing back to this coming Wednesday, February 26th. Player...

Wolcen muddles through ongoing online server issues to mixed reviews and an active playerbase

The optional co-op (co-optional?) ARPG Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem, which released on Steam last week, has had a bit of a rough go of it. In fact, the most recent update from the devs has confirmed some pretty severe problems with its online servers. That said, it appears to be doing reasonably well for itself and...

The Daily Grind: Are there MMOs you love on one platform but hate on another?

I know, I know, PC master race and all that. I'm guessing most old-school MMORPG players think of themselves as PC players because that's where all the original MMORPGs are. Globally, however, that doesn't seem to be the case - one glance at the quarterlies from many South Korean MMO companies always makes that clear. But even still, there...

MMO Week in Review: Anthem’s second verse

MOP celebrated its fifth birthday - thanks to you! Yep, we're still here, bringing you MMO news and opinions... like the fact that SWTOR dropped Pinnacles of Power, NCsoft's MMOs are flagging, Anthem's do-over is a reality, New World is back in alpha, and Allods Online (!) is getting a big new expansion....

Broke Protocol’s latest update brings garages, a James Bond weapon, and cross-compatible mobile play

v1.03 of the online city RPG Broke Protocol is online and it's called Garages. Which seems pretty self explanatory when you look over the update details but it's also important as the version update is also available for the mobile version and is cross-compatible. Obviously, Garages features garages. Private garages, to be exact, where players can store their...

The MOP Up: Runes of Magic helps you catch up

You might or might not be aware that last December, Runes of Magic rolled out new "catch up" servers that allow players to level quickly and then transfer over to regular servers at level 85. Players are now being informed that they have until February 25th to get this done and transfer over before their progress is wiped. There's...

Battle Bards Episode 162: Mystery abounds

Do you love a good mystery? A hidden secret? A riddle wrapped in an enigma and presented on a platter of puzzle? Then you’re in for a treat with today’s Battle Bards, as mystery-themed music from MMORPGs is served for dinner! Also, Syl and Syp finally throw down over a long-standing criticism regarding song picks. It’s brutal.

Global Chat: How fares WoW Classic at the six-month mark?

The phases (i.e., patches) for World of Warcraft Classic continue to roll out, and as the endgame takes form and Darkmoon Faire arrives, it's time to take stock of how the legacy version of WoW is doing in early 2020. SilviteSoltis touches base on the half-year point: "Basically, what I'm saying is that though I thought Blizzard has...

Turn-based online RPG Eden Falling resurfaces with new updates and over $1.3 million in funding

The span of radio silence in-between updates for the online turn-based RPG Eden Falling has been pretty significant -- we haven't heard a lot out of the premiere title from developer Razor Edge Games since 2017 -- but the devs have resurfaced in a big way with a slew of new development updates and a...

One Shots: Something’s fishy here…

At first glance, it looks as though Vincent has been treed by a giant floating koi and an armored chicken. If we're honest, this would be enough to tree most anyone if caught in this peculiar situation. Then again, this is standard happenings for the adventurers of One Shots. "That moment you realize that fish is back on the menu in...
