Hell freezes over: Devilian to sunset in March

Two-year-old Devilian will not make it to its third birthday, we are sorry to report. Trion Worlds announced on Friday that it will be shuttering the Diablo-style MMO on March 5th. This makes sense following developer Bluehole’s decision late last year to discontinue work on the game.

“Trion Worlds and Bluehole Ginno have come to the mutual agreement to bring Devilian to a close,” the publisher posted. “In order to help with this transition, we want to ensure that you have time to say goodbye to your favorite haunts and to decide where your journeys will take you next. As Nala’s time nears its end, we want to offer you every opportunity to enjoy your remaining time there. While the servers are still on, we are turning on a 24/7 event with bonus experience, gold, gems, Enigma keys, and flower drops — making it easier for all to experience endgame content together.”

Devilian players are being compensated with a welcome package and credit transfer to one of Trion’s other titles. We recently checked in with the title, as you can see in the two-year birthday stream below.

Here is Trion scumbaggery in action with their welcome package to one of their other games. Talked to several people I know who put in a ticket to transfer to Archeage for the Erenor Eternal Starter Pack.

Trion denied them the 30 days of Patron status which is specified in their sunset FAQ.

Like someone said earlier. Can’t wait to see Trion shutdown and sunset.

Devilian was one of the best games 2 years ago. Nice teamwork, good abilities etc. It was fun to play and the game really had a lot of potential. Trion just did not care or couldn’t handle it. They just kept neglecting the game, never cared about hack, cheaters, customer service got shut down after a year, complaints never got answered correctly, problems never got solved. The community started to leave the game about 10 months ago and Trion never did anything to lure them back or to get new players. Finally, in September when the population got so low that ppl new each other by name and it became obvious that it is GAME OVER, Trion could have saved the game with a EU-US server merge, they just kept hiding like a guilty kid. Bad policy. Now it is official. A proud Devilian says good bye to a beloved game, and friends.

:(

RIP DEVILIAN

Good. This was just a bad game. If anything I’m surprised it lasted this long. I lasted no longer than a few days in it. Why people played this is beyond me.

I can’t put my finger on why, but I really enjoyed Devillian .. For 3-4 weeks, then I had kindda completed it, and just forgot to return.
It was linear and story driven like crazy which I usually don’t like, had really few build/playstyle options, annoying manga style graphics and yeehaa sounds with every attack, kindda late control responses, creepy f2p. The dungeons were Really good though, and the progression concepts pretty ok. So, I really shouldn’t have liked Devillian but I did.. :D

I picked up Titan quest anniversary edition for $3 on sale although I think it’s back up to $20 now. It’s my favorite Diabol style game, and it even got a Norse themed dlc recently.

Seconded. Grim Dawn is so good! It’s already reasonably priced and if you catch one of the many sales you can get it for as low as 7.50. My wife is playing a shotgun wielding shaman and I’m currently roaming the wilderness with an army of skeletons.

Hmm… played just a little when it first came out. Not my cup of tea, but… it was what you would expect for a ARPG of this type. It didn’t stand out, but, meh, it was a bit of fun.

Now… about this credit transfer business. What if a player isn’t interested in any other Trion games? What then?

That is unfortunate, I enjoyed playing that game until I was no longer able to log into this game either.
