The Italian indie development startup Dynamight Studios is nearly ready to start their crowd-funding campaign for Fractured, the upcoming class-less isometric MMORPG with a fully interactable open sandbox environment. Their long-planned Kickstarter campaign will start on June 1, 2018. Just last month, they have also managed to raise over $100,000 from private investors to fund the development of the game.
In preparation, the team has shared Fractured’s first pre-alpha gameplay video as seen below. This is the product of the work of a 7 person team with SpatialOS and Unity.
WarpPortal, the online video game publisher known for handling Ragnarok Online, Rose Online and other popular anime-styled MMORPGs has announced that all of their games and services to the European regions will be terminated. As of May 25, 2018, all of the European countries except for Russia Federation and the CIS countries will be blocked by regional IP from accessing their games or accounts. This change is due in large by Europe’s new data protection initiative called GDPR that set into effect on the same day as the announcement.
Some of the games affected are:
- Ragnarok Online
- Ragnarok Online 2: Legend of the Second
- Metal Assault
- Dragon Saga
- Requiem: Rise of the Reaver
- Rose Online
- Record of Lodoss War
- Ragnarok: Restart
We first heard of news regarding RaiderZ‘s revival quite suddenly in the last stretch of last year. Its new developers at Masangsoft started this year nicely with a development roadmap that revealed information about planned changes for the game.

The survey will be used to help the publisher choose which regions RaiderZ will be available for. It is a Google form where you answer only a single question. If you are interested in playing the re-release of the game and want to help ensure that your region will be supported, here is the survey. There is no account or additional information required.

If you aren’t in the list of regions with access, you will likely face IP restrictions. Of course, keep in mind that there are also the already existing Korean and Chinese version.

Development for Old School Runescape Mobile seems to be on track with more than 5,000 beta invites recently sent out by Jagex. Runescape, the classic fantasy MMORPG currently has two versions. The modern version of the game uses a new and more powerful engine with modern eye-pleasing graphics and updated combat and skill system. In 2013, Jagex released a 2007 version of the game known as Old School Runescape (2007scape) to please players who prefer the game in its original state before major core gameplay updates. Both will come out with mobile versions, but Old School Runescape Mobile will be launching first.
