Guild Wars 2 drops Out of the Shadows trailer today, big Heart of Thorns sale tomorrow

A friend of mine asked me yesterday whether he ought to pick up Guild Wars 2’s Heart of Thorns expansion to get access to the living world season kicking off next week. I said yes — but I told him to hold on to see whether ArenaNet would run a sale first. And he was right to do so!

“Starting tomorrow, the expansion will be on sale for 50% off!” ArenaNet announced alongside its new season trailer today. Check out the video below, and let us know whether you’re going to pick it up if you haven’t already!

Star Trek Online celebrates the franchise anniversary with an admiral’s uniform

This year, Star Trek Online celebrates an important anniversary. Star Trek has been around for 50 years, and whether you first fell in love with Captain Kirk in the original series or got into the franchise by getting swept up in the pre-release hype for the next movie, it’s been striking a chord with fans across the world the whole time. And while Star Trek Online is celebrating in many different ways, one bit of celebration is fee to everyone: A Kelvin timeline admiral’s uniform.

Players who log in to STO between July 21st and July 25th will see the admiral’s uniform under the Promotions tab in the C-Store; claiming it on one character will unlock the uniform permanently for your account. And yes, that does mean that your temporal agent from the oldest era of the franchise can wear a uniform from the newest incarnation of the franchise. It’s a pretty great time to be a fan of Star Trek.


Giveaway: Das Tal summer alpha keys from Fairytale Distillery and MOP [Over now!]

Indie sandbox Das Tal’s summer alpha kicks off tomorrow morning on July 16th. Fairytale Distillery plans to cut the rope on the servers at 10 a.m. EDT and let you all rampage for two weeks testing out the new biomes, new spear and shield weapon set, the solo player challenge system, the new structures, and the tutorial. Fairytale Distillery has also granted Massively OP 2000 alpha keys that will get you folks in there!

While the studio originally planned to host only a European server for everyone in the alpha, it announced last week that it’s going to run a US-based server as well to avoid some of the lag and bad timing for siege windows. That means there are no regional restrictions on the test or on our keys. Yay!

Pokemon Go gets cloned, sponsored, and harmonized

If you’re in China, you might not be able to play Pokémon Go right at the moment. You can, however, play City Spirit Go, which allows you to do more or less the same thing in a quickly made knockoff of the core game. It is, accordingly, tearing up the Chinese mobile charts. This might seem silly, but when you consider that Pokémon Go players in South Korea are flocking to the one place in South Korea that the game can actually be played, it… well, it still seems silly, but not uniquely so.

Details for a cross-promotional deal with McDonald’s have also surfaced, although the promotion will be restricted to one country at first (presumably Japan) with no announcements on rollouts elsewhere. All McDonald’s locations will be flagged as Pokéstops or gyms for the duration, so you’ll have plenty of reason to flock there to get down to the Pokémon. Meanwhile, fans of the game are calling for harmony between the three opposing teams in the game, proving that three-faction PvP really can lead to stability. Sort of. It’s a Pokémon thing.


Join Starfall Tactics’ pre-alpha event with a key from Snowforged and MOP

Snowforged has granted Massively OP a second round of 600 keys for our readers to sample the pre-alpha before its summer break. Click the Mo button below (and prove you’re not a robot) to grab one of these keys!

Giveaway: AdventureQuest 3D early access and cape keys starring Massively OP’s mascot Mo

We’ve had our eye on AdventureQuest 3D since its successful Kickstarter bid last year. It’s the spiritual successor to a massively popular flash game, only this MMORPG version is fully 3-D, cross-platform, and free-to-play but not pay-to-win. It’s been in closed testing for backers for a while now, but on July 19th, it’s opening the floodgates and heading into open beta (the formal launch is in October).

If you’re interested in the game and a fan of Massively Overpowered, then boy have we got a fun giveaway for you. Artix kindly worked Massively OP’s mascot Mo — well, his plumed and armored head, anyway! — into a sigil for wearing on capes inside the game. And we’ve got keys for those capes — and early access — to hand out today!
