Villagers and Heroes re-opens the Haunted Moors Halloween zone and adds a high-level area

The latest update to Villagers & Heroes is offering a whole lot of goodies for players if these patch notes are any indicator. Players can look forward to the return of the Halloween-y goodness of the Haunted Moors, a new high-level area, and several other updates which are going live as we speak. This year's Halloween...

Astellia Online confirms it will be hosting a Halloween event

Astellia Online has announced that it, too, will be joining in on the spooky season with its own take on Halloween in a post made to the game's official forums alerting players to some recent developments. Details are pretty sparse right now, but the post mentions that players can look forward to an event where they can "eat...
It can't be fixed, our time was going to be devoted to fixing it.

Path of Exile outlines further fixes moving through the halfway mark of Blight league

Here's the bad news for Path of Exile: The developers aren't planning on holding some sort of community event in the Blight league simply because everyone is hard at work with the 3.9 and 4.0 updates, so it's not in the cards. The good news is that not only are those updates in the works, but players can...

Blizzard decides to ban the college Hearthstone team that called for a Blizzard boycott too

Did it bother you that Blizzard had punished Blitzchung over his Hong Kong liberation stunt but planned to permit American University players who similarly protested the Hong Kong situation as well as Blizzard itself to keep right on playing - at least until they quit in disgust? We referred to it as Blizzard's "one company, two policies"...

Nexon is sunsetting mobile survival MMO Durango Wild Lands already

Welp, that didn't last long: Nexon announced last night that it's sunsetting Durango Wild Lands, a mobile survival MMO that kicked around in various stages of beta across the world for several years before finally launching here in the west in May 2019. "To put it bluntly, we have decided to end the service of Durango: Wild Lands....

Bungie partners with shoe brand to release $140 Destiny 2 boots, sure why not

Let's be honest, Destiny 2 makes some very weird merchandising choices, whether it's Pop-Tarts, energy drinks, or scented candles. By comparison, then, $140 boots are damn near pedestrian. Sure enough, those boots were really a thing, and they have actually sold out of the limited pre-orders that were available. The boots come by way of a collaborative...

EverQuest II asks players to keep raiding without custom UIs for server lag test

I dunno about you, but when my heavily customized UI stops working, I tend to want to just not play the MMO. That's the struggle EverQuest II players are about to be facing, as Daybreak announced that it'll be disabling custom UIs temporarily starting next week as the studio tries to isolate serious server lag. Lest you think...
It's already dead.

PlanetSide 2 brings the Nanite of the Living Dead event back for more spooky shooting

Fans of PlanetSide 2 probably had lots of reason to be scared following the latest round of Daybreak layoffs on Friday, and not in the fun way. For those of you who greatly prefer being scared in the fun way, though, the game does now have you covered with the arrival of the Nanite of the Living...
HOW DID THIS HAPPEN SO PREDICTABLY!

WoW Factor: Blizzard’s nonpology and the ethics of boycotting

Last time we were here, we discussed the intensely shoddy ethics of Blizzard's behavior surrounding the banning of Hearthstone professional Ng "Blitzchung" Wai Chang. That was less than a week ago. Since that point, the immense amount of global backlash including widespread boycotts pushed Blizzard to finally respond to the situation (which should have happened on, you know, Tuesday)...

Black Desert preps Halloween and Great Expedition on PC, awakens the Tamer on Xbox One

Black Desert Online's PC version is busy prepping its boat for the Great Expedition update coming next week, but in the meantime, there's Halloween to contend with! Yep, Spook is back in BDO. Beginning today and tomorrow, players will be hunting down the Halloween event boss Spook, chasing pumpkin ghosts, carrying out Halloween quests, joining the costume...

Into the Super-verse: Catching up with Valiance Online

So far in the Into the Super-verse column space, we have touched base with two of the three upcoming City of Heroes spiritual successors: namely, Ship of Heroes and City of Titans. But I wanted to make sure that we gave some time to the third project, which is why I reached out to

Blade & Soul’s latest update brings Halloween, crafting system updates, and new PvP equipment

I was pretty sure the only major thing coming soon to Blade & Soul was the game's Halloween event, but the patch notes that accompany the update that brings Halloween have offered up a slew of additional features, including crafting updates and some new kit for PvP players to unlock. Crafting has seen a variety of updates...

TERA’s Skywatch update takes players to a ‘high-flying zone’

We all know that MMORPGs are strangely obsessed with floating islands. But the real question that I want answered is how do these massive, heavy chunks of earth stay airborne? And don't you wave it away with "magic;" I want technical details and a reasoned response about why physics decided to take a holiday just so that things...

ArcheAge Unchained delays Steam, beholds mighty queues during launch rollout

Gamigo's touting it as a "successful launch," but ArcheAge Unchained's slow rollout yesterday was more like a typical MMO launch, beset by queues, crashes, bugs, and the exhilaration of finally getting into the game. That pic up above? Justin clipped that when his queue was over 5000. Perhaps the most frustrating news of the day came in the...

Riot announces team shooter, card game, fighting game, co-op game, and mobile League of Legends

If you felt a small earthquake last night, don't worry -- it was just the response of Riot Games' community at all of the huge reveals on the occasion of League of Legends' 10th anniversary. The huge news for League of Legends fans is the announcement of Wild Rift, a 5v5 mobile MOBA that was "rebuilt from...

The Daily Grind: Do you think MMORPG communities are too cynical?

A while back, I stumbled across the most bizarre and lovely multiplayer game I think I've ever seen. It's called Kind Words, and the idea is sort of like if a Reddit advice board got mashed up with your 6th grade pen pal. People can log in and write messages seeking comfort, and then other people... write back...

Elder Scrolls Online previews Dragonhold’s drama and destinations

Elder Scrolls Online's Dragonhold DLC is less than a week away now on PC, and for those who are curious - maybe even curious enough to have dipped into the freebie prologue questline - ZeniMax has dropped a new dev blog about the region you'll be exploring deep in Southern Elsweyr, which the studio says...

The Stream Team: Launching into ArcheAge Unchained

ArcheAge just celebrated its fifth birthday (with an insane jumping puzzle!), but now a new AA is being born. As of today, ArcheAge Unchained has launched for folks to get their fix in a new way. Will it be different? Massively OP's MJ is braving the launch queues to give you a peek inside the buy-to-play version. Tune...

EverQuest II kicks off Gear Up, Level Up to get people ready for its next expansion

So you aren't really prepared for the next EverQuest II expansion because you haven't done all your leveling and your gear is outdated. Shh, it's okay. EQII still loves you. It understands that you had things to do and you just couldn't find the time. That's all right. Want to catch up now with the game's Gear Up, Level...
