Blade & Soul tweaks its Blade & Ghoul Halloween event based on feedback

So, let's take stock. The bad news about the upcoming changes to Blade & Soul's Blade & Ghoul event is that "soul" and "ghoul" are still not homophones unless you really don't know how to pronounce one or both of those words. That's not changing. The good news is... well, pretty much everything else, as the...

Daybreak confirms that ex-H1Z1 sandbox Just Survive is still sunsetting tomorrow

It looks like Just Survive's sunset is really happening. Back in August, Daybreak announced that it was sunsetting the sandboxier zombie survival half of the game once known just as H1Z1, saying it was "no longer in a position to fulfill its greatness and the current population of the game makes it untenable to maintain." The game technically...

Here’s how Nexon is tweaking MapleStory 2’s dungeon loot caps

If I were doing a top 10 list of things that drive me nuts in MMORPGs, one thing surely on it would be raid lockouts and other such artificial timers on content. They tell me in no uncertain terms where the really lucrative stuff in the game is, and they always seem like a cheap bandaid on a much...

Black Desert clarifies that the Archer isn’t launching alongside the Drieghan expansion

Don't get your hopes up about playing the Archer in Black Desert anytime soon - the new class isn't launching with Drieghan.

Neverwinter teases Heart of Fire module with new video as the Masquerade of Liars returns

On November 6th, Neverwinter players will be invited to join the totally legit and not-at-all questionable company of Acquisitions Inc. on a delightfully absurd romp through Faerun in the new Heart of Fire adventure, which has been penned in collaboration with Penny Arcade's own Jerry Holkins, Mike Krahulik, and Amy Falcone. To get players hyped for the update,...

Bless Online has officially launched out of early access open beta as a free-to-play MMORPG

It's been nothing but a whirlwind for Neowiz's Bless Online these last few years. After an aborted attempt to get the gorgeous Korean MMORPG in western hands through Aeria/Gamigo, Neowiz took the title back in-house last year and retuned combat for the western audience, with intent to bring it to early access this May, which it then did. To...

Lord of the Rings Online announces ‘legendary’ progression server

With all of the expansions and zones added to Lord of the Rings Online over the last 11 years, it's hard to remember a time when the MMO entire consisted only of a pocket of the world in Eriador. Now you'll have the chance to refresh your memory with the new Legendary Worlds coming to the MMO...

Jukebox Heroes: World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth’s soundtrack

As a fan of video game music, I get ridiculously excited when it comes time for World of Warcraft to release a new expansion. I know this means we are about to be gifted a wealth of soundtrack goodness, both in quality and quantity. However, I was a little nervous about Battle for Azeroth, because Blizzard almost had...
Oh great.

Gamigo formally announces the Trion Worlds buyout that manifested yesterday

Yesterday's surprise news that MMO company Trion Worlds had been sold to Gamigo was then all but confirmed by Trion's Linda "Brasse" Carlson, who announced her departure on the RIFT forums, and by Scott Hartsman himself, who asked Twitter for help placing victims of the Trion layoffs in other companies. While the anonymous claim that as many as...

I gotta say, I've ordered some extra popcorn for this week, just in anticipation of watching Fallout 76 and Red Dead Redemption 2 clobber each other. But here we are, with F76's beta beginning today - and RDR2 putting down roots on Thursday when the launch kicks off. Rockstar has a big "what to expect when you're expecting...

Ghostbusters World is out now for those who are not, in fact, afraid of no ghost

If there's something strange in the neighborhood, who you gonna call? Absolutely no one, because you're playing Ghostbusters World on your phone, hopefully. It is also hoped that the "something strange" is more along the lines of hypothetical ghosts than, say, a truck full of corrosive chemicals flipping over. Then you should probably call someone, like emergency services. Where...

Elder Scrolls Online’s Murkmire DLC and Update 20 are live
