Ashes of Creation preps for September’s Alpha 1, shows off its action combat

Need a good dose of Ashes of Creation news to spice up your week? Intrepid Studios popped its head back up to talk up the game, starting with the revelations that Ashes is going to make an appearance at Gamescom next week and kick off its Alpha 1 testing next month.

The Alpha 1 test will span seven months and cover 100-player open world battlegrounds, 200-player castles and sieges, and the city horde mode, which challenges players to work together to protect a town from rampaging NPC invaders. At some point down the road during this test, name reservations will open up for backers.

Lead Developer Steven Sharif also popped onto Discord to share some other tidbits about the game features and systems. If you wanted to know if crossbows will have scopes (they will), if there would be quest dailies (there will not), and what surprises weapons will hold (some have skills!), then you’ll want to peruse this list.

Intrepid whetted fans’ appetites for this upcoming MMO with an action combat gameplay trailer. Where is this trailer? Where might you find it? Don’t fret, it’s been waiting for you below… waiting for you all your life.

Age of Wushu celebrates seven years of sandbox shenanigans in China

Has it really been seven years since martial arts MMO Age of Wushu first descended on an MMORPG genre that had almost forgotten what a real sandbox looked like? Indeed it has. As MMO Culture noted today, Snail Games is currently celebrating the game’s seventh birthday since launching China with an update introducing the game’s final martial arts school and a brand-new story trailer to boot.

We agree with Cinderboy that it’s unlikely the update will ever make its way westward; the subreddit is all but dead and the western version of the game has seen little more than bonus events for many months since the North American and European games merged back under Snail’s control. Die-hard fans of the game just biding time for more news on the upcoming sequel Age of Wushu 2.

Still, happy birthday to what Massively-that-was once justly called “the greatest sandbox you’ll never play.”

The Survivalist: Excited for ARK’s Extinction

I finally broke down and watched ARK: Survival Evolved’s Extinction trailer. It’s not that I didn’t want to! On the contrary, I was very interested to get that glimpse; I just wanted to wait until we had even more info about it so I could really delve into it. But since that doesn’t seem to be coming about, I couldn’t hold out any longer. It is the conclusion of the multi-expansion story arc after all, and we’ve just gotten all excited about ARK’s story!

After watching the trailer, my anticipation level inched up a few notches. The teaser hints at answers to some long-held questions, and I am excited to take on the all-new survival challenges. Helping to amp that enthusiasm up are the monthly Extinction-themed content drops: Say hello to some bionic dinos! (They even lay tek eggs!) Perhaps Extinction will be quite a grand finale. I definitely look forward to learning, and sharing, more as we learn about the expansion.

All that said, there’s still that little bit of nagging disappointment at the lack of attention older maps get, especially the original game. Who knows though, perhaps once the final game is out and done the devs can turn some attention back to fixing those issues with the island.

Elder Scrolls Online’s Wolfhunter DLC is live today with new dungeons and PvP love

As promised, The Elder Scrolls Online’s next DLC, Wolfhunter, has officially launched today! The patch is for everyone, while the DLC comes with a fee, unless you’re subbed, in which case you can jump right in.

Massively OP’s Tamriel Infinium columnist Larry Everett checked out the DLC ahead of the launch alongside three key developers and found it to be primarily aimed at group dungeon enthusiasts, not so much fans of the game’s storytelling. And that only makes sense, as the pair of werewolf-themed dungeons are at the heart of the content.

But there’s a bit more in the overall update independent of the DLC; all players can look forward two new gear, new outfits, and a ton of updates for battleground PvPers, including some quality-of-life love for Cyrodiil. The werewolf skill line got some buffs too!

Get caught up on all our coverage of the DLC, then check out the trailer!

Survival sandbox Scum hits Steam early access on August 29

As a criminal who is trying to get out of the supermax system, you should probably know that nothing comes easily. So if you’re going to win your freedom, you should be prepared for a hard and long struggle… to become a reality TV star!

This is the strange premise behind Scum, an “extremely complex” survival sandbox that’s coming to Steam early access soon. And by “soon,” we mean “on August 29th,” because that’s the date that the studio just announced to its fans. The studio plans to keep Scum in early access for “at least one full year” while it tests the game and completes its launch day features.

It’s definitely a different type of survival sandbox, with a really in-depth character creator, mechs, zombies, drones, and more. Check out the (gory) release date announcement trailer after the break.

MU Legend launches on Steam with big game-wide events

It’s time for MU Legend to really go all out on launching. It’s launching officially today, so that’s a milestone. It’s also arriving on Steam, so you can pick it up there. It’s also delivering its Noria update, which has a trailer just below and includes fun things like an endless tower climb, new wing upgrades, and the eponymous Noria. And it’s launching all of this with a big set of events you can take part in.

That’s a lot of launch.

Players can get prizes for making progress on Steam or accomplishing various tasks within the Noria update itself; there are also a variety of goodies available for new or returning players who opt to pick the game up on Steam. If you’re dazzled by free stuff and enjoy hacking and/or slashing, you might want to check the game out; it is free-to-play, after all.

CCP reveals EVE Online: Infinite Galaxy

EVE Online’s mobile game now has an official title (sort of)! At ChinaJoy this month, CCP revealed the trailer for EVE Online: Infinite Galaxy, the mobile MMO that it is working on with NetEase. The trailer promises a space opera that spans across over 8,000 star systems. Players will have access to over 100 spaceships for this iOS and Android title.

This announcement comes just days after EVE Online was shut down in China by its old publisher Tiancity. NetEase will be handling the rebooted version of that sandbox as well when it comes back online (and don’t feel too bad for those players, since they’ll be able to import their accounts to the reboot).

EVE Online: Infinite Galaxy should be heading our way in 2019, but you can get excited about it now by watching the trailer below!

World of Warcraft’s newest cinematic shows a Horde deeply divided

With World of Warcraft players deeply divided on the build-up to Battle for Azeroth — especially in light of a recent war crime committed by a certain war chief — players were left wondering how the rest of the Horde was dealing with Sylvanas’ over-the-top actions.

Part of that answer was delivered today with a new gorgeous CGI cinematic titled “Old Soldier.” Taking place in the hours before the Siege of Lordaeron that was seen in the Battle for Azeroth trailer, this cinematic focuses on Saurfang’s distress over the lack of honor in the Horde to the point where he feels like quitting entirely.

“They will come for us now,” Saurfang bellows. “ALL OF THEM.”

It also stars the surprise cult star of the expansion, a Troll Shaman that fans have labeled “Zappy Boi.” Our favorite comment? “He is no longer Zappy Boi. He is now Zappy Man.”

RuneScape gives away a ton of free stuff through Twitch Prime

Jagex is revving up one of its biggest RuneScape promotions in recent memory. From now through September 6th, anyone with access to Twitch Prime can grab a free bundle of goodies for the game.

And when we say “bundle,” we’re not talking a few little trinkets here. It’s a really, really huge amount of useful stuff, starting with a free month of subscription to both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape. It goes on, too: You’ll get Umbral armor and a flame blade, a companion pet, two Umbral chests, 15 treasure hunter keys, 200 RuneCoins, and a Twitch purple player skin.

All in all, the bundle is a reported $50 value that can be snagged for nothing. Jagex also produced a new RuneScape trailer, which you can watch after the break!

Destiny 2 is offering a $60 ‘Legendary Collection’ all-in-one bundle for Forsaken’s launch

At launch, the Legendary Collection will also include a character boost that allows players the option to jump right to the latest adventure, Forsaken. For those wanting to experience Destiny 2 and its current expansions immediately, a pre-purchase of the digital Legendary Collection includes the ability to play the game right away.”

That ought to be a nice catch-up, if you feel like shelling out the $60 for it. The new trailer down below might be enticement too.
