Marvel Future Revolution hypes up its universe-merging story in a video

I'm going to be honest, specific details are pretty scant here, but there is a new video from the folks at Marvel Future Revolution that talks up the upcoming mobile MMO's multiverse and its story. Sort of. It's a lot of lip service, but since the game is a few weeks removed from its PAX East floor...

Atlas patches in fire bolt ammo for ballistas, bug fixes, and quality-of-life improvements

After yet another span of silence, piratical MMO Atlas has once again piped up with a new version update that adds, among other things, some fiery new ammunition for the ballista weapon, some quality-of-life adjustments, and a list of bug fixes. The hot item (get it?) is the Ballista Fire Bolt, which is specially designed to set fire...

Darkest Dungeon joins a PvP circus for one last show

Fans of the grimly narrated Darkest Dungeon gave low chuckles at seeing Red Hook Studios put up a preview of a new PvP feature on April 1st -- but it turns out that this was no jape. A day later, Red Hook Studios confirmed that the acclaimed dungeon crawler indeed is slated to get multiplayer in the form...

Trove’s Bunfest offers new spring event content for Gamigo’s voxelbox

My five-year-old literally woke me up this morning chattering excitedly about "Bunfest" in Trove. Not bunnies - buns. She was insistent that this was important. As it turns out, she hadn't lost her mind, even if I'd lost sleep: Gamigo is actually putting a new event into Trove for the spring festive season this year, and it is...

EverQuest II discusses solo content, crafting, and auto-attack updates in a podcast

Kyle "Kander" Vallee, creative director for EverQuest II, has recorded and shared the third episode of his Kander's Candor podcast, which talks about, among other things, the viability of solo play and updates in the works for crafting and auto-attacking in the MMORPG. On the subject of solo play (which he seems to liken to casual play), Vallee...

RaiderZ reboot shows off progress on basic attack improvements and the skill socket system

Developer Masangsoft has posted a new progress update video for its reboot of RaiderZ, showing off some new updates in terms of improved basic attack speed and a skill socket system among other things.

Star Citizen’s Pillar Talk discusses friends list features and better persistence in alpha 3.9

The next alpha update for Star Citizen has its fair share of big-ticket items -- the New Babbage area, the prison, new missions, new ships -- but the most recent episode of Pillar Talk is about some of the smaller yet no less important features that 3.9 is bringing to the table - mostly. Cloud Imperium did...

NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace ragequits during an official esports racing event

So apparently NASCAR is hosting an esports event featuring real drivers in a simulated series of races in the racing sim title iRacing. Readers will recall that this sort of thing isn't unique with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic; many motorsports events are being held digitally. It's during one such race that NASCAR drivers Bubba...

Guild Wars 2 Super Adventure Box reopens next week, plus somebody bought the golden sink

Finally! ArenaNet had previously announced that Guild Wars 2's Super Adventure Box, inarguably the best April Fools' event in all of MMO land, was being postponed a smidge into April so as to both avoid overlapping the new event and make it more festivalish. And now, we've got a hard date for the content, and my kids...

Blizzard alters Warcraft III: Reforged’s matchmaking system while players are waiting on basic features

You know that old joke about how you could get the Model T Ford in any color you wanted as long as it was black? Well, Warcraft III: Reforged continues its long trend of being a variant on that joke because the latest update will give you everything you want as long as it's behind-the-scenes matchmaking improvements...

Choose My Adventure: The weird world of Heroes Online in Roblox

I had a feeling this whole month of write-ups would go weirdly, and sure enough, it did. It was only until after I got into Heroes Online, the chosen Roblox game, that I realized this was an MMO based around the anime My Hero Academia. So an online game made by an anime fan in Roblox is perhaps...

Disgruntled Chronicles of Elyria backers seek aid from the Washington attorney general

Ever since Kickstarted MMORPG Chronicles of Elyria went belly-up, players have been trying to figure out what to do about it. Some had sunk thousands of dollars into fiefdoms in a game that will now never launch, while others merely wanted some revenge - and some accountability. As we reported in March, some angry former backers were...

Our interview with Final Fantasy XIV’s Naoki Yoshida and Yusuke Mogi

Health concerns kept the staff from Final Fantasy XIV away from this year's PAX East in Boston back at the end of February. This is a known fact. But that didn't mean that reporters didn't have questions, and thus the team went with a time-honored tradition of an email interview so that we still got a chance to...

No Man’s Sky just patched in the Exo Mech update, confirming leaked video

You can have plenty of neat stuff in No Man's Sky. You can have your own custom base. You can have a frigate and a fleet. You can even have an organic, living ship, which I still contend is gross as hell, but if you want to live your prog rock album cover fantasy, you do you....

Riot’s Runeterra launches April 30 while COVID-19 slows Valorant

We were just talking on the podcast about how, with everyone stuck at home and looking for gaming outlets, that this is the perfect time to release your product. At least Riot Games is taking advantage of this window, as the studio announced this week that it will be launching its League of Legends card game spin-off

Players were promised yesterday that the developers behind World of Warcraft would be shedding some more light on Shadowlands in the near future.

It's time for players to start in on the latest set of relic weapons for Final Fantasy XIV today, as patch 5.25 opens up this lengthy questline to players in the new Save the Queen series.

The Daily Grind: Which MMO has the messiest combat?

I don't like messes. They freak me out. The chaos, the uncertainty, it gets to me. And it's as true in real life as in MMOs. Sure, I've joked before about loving the wild chaos of, say, City of Heroes' particle-effects spew before. And I do. But what I don't like is when combat actually feels messy -...

Massively Uplifting: Cake, coloring, and EVE Online’s PLEX4Good COVID-19 relief

The news this past month has been infected with the novel coronavirus. It's everywhere we turn, and we can't escape it even if we try. I mean, how far can we get anyway during shelter-in-place? Thankfully, not all the news spreading around is bad! And here in Massively Uplifting we are focused on bringing the feel good stories...
