This week we have stories and videos from Mu Ignition, The Black Death, Citadel, World of Speed, Armored Warfare, Portal Knights, Crossout, Destiny 2, Reign of Guilds, Skyforge, Hyper Universe, RF Online, Dark and Light, all waiting for you after the break!
New Games and Testing
- Reign of Guilds: How does being a Count influence the crafting process? Oh, wouldn’t you like to know.
- The Black Death: Work continues on localization, the decay system, and controller support. And check out the new main menu!
- Dark and Light: May 17th’s patch began a balance pass on Archos’ creatures to make them feel “more distinctive and unique.” Then the May 23rd update included more optimization and bug fixes.
- RF Online: Let’s catch up with this title, shall we? Patch 4.25 made some changes to level requirements, added six new battle dungeon keys, included a buffing NPC, boosted loot drops, allowed players to combine items, and added repeatable quests. The team also opened up a new server called Pegasus. [Thanks Austin!]
