Mobile MMOs (mobile massively multiplayer online games) support large amounts of players that can interact with each other on the same server. Mobile RPGs (mobile role-playing games) allow players to assume the roles of characters and take control over many of their actions and whereabouts.
Blade & Soul: Revolution aims to give a mobile experience that is as close to the PC version as possible. This means that the combat is action-mode and players fight for glory in PvP tournaments and massive 500 vs 500 battles.

Published by Nexon, the mobile MMORPG ‘Spiritwish‘ has entered closed beta testing in South Korea. The isometric mobile RPG shares a lot of gameplay and graphical aspects with Tree of Savior. If you are a fan of ToS or Ragnarok Online, this game is one to keep an eye out for. Dungeon bosses, quests, cut-scenes, NPCs and world-design act and look almost identical to Tree of Savior. There is also an auto-combat mode.
One main difference is that players create their own team of up to 3 controllable characters. There is no official word on whether an English version is planned for Spiritwish yet. Watch the official teaser below to see the gameplay. Beta testing will begin in Korea later in 2018.
Jagex has announced that the release date for both the iOS and Android versions of Old School RuneScape is set as October 30th. Fans and new players can pre-order and pre-register for any version on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

This means that those of you without the Members beta installed will not be able to access the app until its full release on October 30th. If you have access via the Members beta, the iOS closed beta, or you’re located in an area in which we’ve soft launched (Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden), then you’ll be able to continue playing right up until the full release.”
