Lockbox roundup: MMO studios on ‘elegant’ lockboxes, legal issues, and the ‘cosmetics only’ angle

You know the lockbox thing is reaching saturation when there are so many things to cover we have to resort to a roundup. Nevertheless, for those of you who want to stay on top of developments and arguments, here we go.

Polygon has an explainer piece up on Destiny 2’s Eververse fallout and why everyone is still rioting over the game’s monetization. Of note for this discussion is the publication’s note that if Destiny 2 is hell-bent on having lootboxes, it ought to adopt Overwatch’s lootboxes, as they’re relatively tame and haven’t produced a Reddit in full meltdown.

Gamasutra has a roundup of MMO developer quotes from studios that believe they’re doing lockboxes “elegantly,” including Trion (for Defiance), PWE (for Star Trek Online), Wargaming (for World of Warships). In this particularly case, that means either being easily accessible through in-game play (not just in the cash shop), making lockbox drops tradeable to other players, creating systems of accruing lockbox rewards, or offering a choice of lootbox type.

World of Tanks 1.0 getting massive engine overhaul in 2018, World of Warships goes mobile

Wargaming has has quite the new year planned for fans. World of Tanks is getting an overhaul, switching to an in-house created advanced CORE graphics engine in March 2018. Dubbed World of Tanks 1.0, the game will look and sound quite different. Besides the massive visual facelift sprucing up water, flora, terrain, lighting, and more (which devs state will have no adverse effect on the game’s performance), sounds have been improved. More than 25 of the maps will be redesigned with their own musical themes that will change dynamically, all brought to you by over 40 musicians from all around the world. Mile Jerebek, World of Tanks Development Director, said:

“Update 1.0 is a true game-change. Though the spirit of the game remains the same, the introduction of the new graphics engine leads to a far greater boost in image fidelity than a simple resolution increase. It’s a staggering difference from the game as you know it, and we can’t wait for players to get hands-on with it.”

Want a peek at how this update will actually look and sound, as well as see how it will run on your own rig? Wargaming offers players World of Tanks enCore 2018 to download. You can also see some before and after screens and watch the trailer below. Read more

World of Warships sails into Steam’s port

“You ain’t anybody if you ain’t on Steam,” our momma told us when we were tykes. Of course, back then Steam had yet to be invented, so this statement was more cryptic than it should’ve been. Now? Now it’s practically truth, which is why World of Warships made an attempt to get onto the platform.

Access to the game through Steam went live earlier this week, offering fans another way to install and play the multiplayer ship battler. Other than how you get into the game, there is no difference between Steam’s World of Warships and the official client.

The team confirmed that all players can enjoy the same game on the same servers, although any new Steam players will have to pick and commit to a region before playing. You cannot use your Wargaming login for the Steam client, unfortunately.

Steam collectibles and achievements are on their way, the team said, although they won’t be present in this launch edition.

World of Warships is raising money to keep the USS Texas afloat

The USS Texas launched more than a century ago, and at the time she was one of the most advanced warships in the world. Now, though, she’s a victim of bad weather, an aging craft that’s nearly sunk. But World of Warships has a bit of a thing about old warships staying afloat, so the game is offering players a chance to purchase items in the game and contribute to charity in the process. There are four new bundles available to add the USS Texas to your ship collection, along with a gaudy “Lone Star” camo patterns and a commemorative flag.

Players who opt for the largest bundle will also get a special mission to undertake 20 random battles with the USS Texas. If you already own the ship, buying one of the bundles which includes the ship will credit you for her normal purchase price for the in-game store, to boot. Check out videos of the ship in action and a bit more about the real ship just below.

World of Warships comes to Steam November 15, but you can’t use your Wargaming account

Here’s a round of good news, bad news for World of Warship fans. While Wargaming’s naval battler is finally heading to Steam on November 15th, it won’t allow players to use their Wargaming account to access it.

Wargaming said that this couldn’t be helped: “World of Warships wasn’t initially designed as a cross-platform project. That means that if you’ve played the game already you would want to keep using the original client. If you log in using Steam, you automatically create a new game account, which binds to your Steam account.”

Other than that, it sounds like full steam ahead for this client. The Steam and Wargaming versions will use the same servers and the same version of the game, allowing for even more hectic battles on the high seas. The team posted a FAQ on Steam to address some of the details of the coming launch.

Halloween events across the MMORPG verse, 2017 edition

Hey, you. Yeah, you, dude leeching candy from the bucket you bought “for the neighborhood kids.” And you, lady still trying to decide between “Princess Leia” and “lazy zombie” for your costume (go Leia, duh). Put all that aside and get into some MMOs instead! Halloween is only one night in real life, but in MMORPGs, it goes on for days or even weeks. Some studios will probably even forget to turn it off! Others will let you run around with a flaming pumpkin head mask for all eternity!

Here’s what we’re looking at this year for Halloween across the MMORPG verse.

World of Warships recruits Tesla to fight the evil forces of Transylvania

Do you recall back in the early days of World of Warships, when the game looked like it would be a World War II naval simulator in the vein of World of Tanks? That lasted for approximately 10 hot minutes before the multiplayer title took a sharp right turn into fantasy, anime crossovers, science-fiction, and now, Halloween madness.

It’s probably better this way.

World of Warships fired off a new salvo of Halloween scenarios this week, sending player fleets to fight the evil forces of Transylvania, a region well-known for its naval supremacy. To help players in this effort, a task force of heroes such as Tesla (yes, that Nikola Tesla) and a fleet of specialized ships are available to play. Win the day, and you could be treated to unique Halloween flags and camos for your regular ships.

Happy birthday to Fallen Earth, Aion, World of Warships, and Warhammer Online

This particular part of September is loaded with MMORPG and MMO birthdays. In addition to ArcheAge, whose corgipocalypse we’ve been covering already, and Ultima Online, doomed to ding 20 by Monday, there are a few more we’ve not mentioned yet. Let’s remedy that!

Aion is turning eight today, and it’s putting on a pretty sweet partyplus a different one in the EU. US players can look forward to bonus experience, cake, and Kroemede’s Revenge; through the weekend in the EU, expect a Cake Hunt, in-game boots, gifts, and temporary mounts, plus an event about poppys. I don’t know, it’s Aion, man, just go with it. We’ll be streaming some of the US festivities on Saturday, so stay tuned!

Fallen Earth also turns eight today, though you won’t find any hoopla on the official site, where there’s been no news since last year. MOP’s Justin judged it in maintenance mode as of at least this past summer. It’s OK, Fallen Earth. We’ll have a slice of cake in your honor.

World of Warships is offering charity bundles for donating to hurricane relief

If you’ve somehow missed the news, Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma have pretty well pounded the daylights out of the Caribbean, Florida, and eastern Texas. There are a lot of people struggling right now, and World of Warships is doing what it can to suppose relief efforts by adding new bundles to the game for sale. 100% of the proceeds from the bundles will be donated to Team Rubicon, a charity organization that helps veterans transition into civilian service.

Not interested in playing the game or getting bundles? That’s fine, too; you can make a donation directly to Team Rubicon and have Wargaming.net match the donation up to $20,000. It’s an effort to provide some extra help to the regions afflicted by the hurricane, and if you want to get a little game benefit out of it in the process, that’s fine as well.
