The World of Warcraft game client will no longer support 32-bit operating systems when the Battle for Azeroth expansion goes live on August 14th. Blizzard Entertainment states that the vast majority of players run the game client on 64-bit systems and the change will allow them to focus on the 64-bit version’s stability and efficiency. If you’re using a 32-bit OS, you’ll need to upgrade to keep playing. For most operating systems, this option is available for free.
Jin Seipatsu, the lightning fist brawler character of SoulWorker has received a new class upgrade in the Korean version of the game. Now powered by two mechanical wings, Jin’s hand-to-hand action combat is greatly diversified with a set of new explosive close and long range skills. Long range energy blasts lets Jin gather and blow enemies from afar.
With Jin Seipatsu’s latest update, the Korean version of SoulWorker has now updated all but one character in the roster. The English version has yet to receive any of the character upgrades and is still on their way to release the sixth SoulWorker member, Iris Yuma. Jin Seipatsu was released not long ago as a playable character in Gameforge’s English version. You can play as the explosive and tanky character now, but don’t expect to receive a pair of mech wings anytime soon. If Gameforge plans to follow the same order as the Korean version, there are four characters that will receive their character upgrades ahead of Jin.

Bless Online Promises Arena PvP & New Dungeons In 1-2 Weeks – Influx Of Community Uproar & Refunds Over Missing Content
Neowiz, the developer and publisher of the recently launched Steam version of Bless Online is dealing with a crazy turn of events and community uproar. Pitch forks are being raised as players make their way to the end-game content of the current build.
Lag issues and poor server and graphic optimizations are common concerns raised by those who have played the Early Access. On top of this, as players reach the current max level (level 45), they are quick to find out that much of the end-game content that defines Bless Online’s gameplay has yet to be implemented or are very incomplete. That includes the PvP Ranking system, arenas, battlegrounds, Skill Gem acquisition, Royal Quests, Honor Quests and the popular PvP map called Basel Canyon. Granted, Neowiz did state that some of these features will be added in future updates in an old FAQ.
Bless Online Begins Early Access With Large Population & Level Up Rewards – Future Content Announced
Bless Online has finally opened its gates to Western players with the start of the Founder’s headstart for the early access. Neowiz initially launched the game on Steam with one server for each region and both of which took just a bit less than 30 minutes to be completely full. To combat the queue, additional servers were quickly added for both North American and European regions.
As is typical for an MMORPG launch, Bless Online has started a set of Level Up Events to reward players for progressing their characters. For every 10 levels, players will receive Support Boxes that contain Collecting Bags, Baguettes, Taming Scrolls, Peace Declarations, Lumena (premium currency) and other consumables. You can read more details about the events on the official site.

The alpha client of Legends of Aria has received an update that changes player combat and forces players to work a little harder to get around. The combat tweaks involve an increase in healing amounts, an increase in damage output of STR, the removal of mana potions and the reduction of base weapon damages.
If you’ve played an MMORPG, an easily accessible world map via the “M” key may be a feature you take for granted. The latest patch to Legends of Aria takes away that function. Instead, players will have the ability to purchase physical maps of the 5 world areas of Celador in towns and outposts. They will also be able to rename and place waypoints on the physical maps.
