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.
Wild West Online has announced a new patch update, v0.8.528 that comes with improvements to quality of life and basic game features. Players below level 20 will be forced to join the “novice servers”, a new hot bar will allow players to switch between their guns and more easily use their items, and new hair colors have been added to the character creation.
Wild West Online has stayed at a Mostly Negative rating level on Steam since the game launched on May 10, 2018. Some common criticisms are of lack of content, lack of polish when it comes to features, and lack of MMO aspects in the gameplay. Check out the full list of changes that comes with the latest update on the official forums.
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.
During the annual Game Enthusiasts’ Day, Netease revealed the first glimpse of the world of the mobile version of Revelation Online titled Revelation M, one of two major projects for the Revelation Online IP. Now Netease has announced that they are now accepting pre-registrations for the soon-to-be released game. Pre-registration can be done through the official site with a Chinese phone number. The game is available to Android and iOS users.
Not much is known about the gameplay mechanics of Revelation M yet, but we do know that it will be set several years ahead of the PC version and will feature younger characters. Revelation M will be a massively multiplayer online game and will share the same Wuxia-themed fantasy universe as its PC predecessor.
Star Citizen, the highest crowd-funded MMO in record is offering a new bundle pack called The Legatus Pack for $27,000 USD.

KOG Games is at it again with more screenshots of PvE combat gameplay in KurtzPel, their PvP heavy spiritual successor to Elsword and Grand Chase. The new screenshots feature the recently revealed Blazing Fist class in an explosive combat session with a giant magical monster. This mano-a-mano takes place in an instanced dungeon called Caverns of Beast where ancient wizards conduct secret experiments on abducted citizens of a nearby village.
KurtzPel will consist mainly of PvP activities with small-scale PvE as part of its progression. There will be a story, but it is unknown how that will integrate with the content. So far, we know that there will be 2-man co-op instanced PvE missions that players can challenge.
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.
Developers at Masangsoft for the yet to be released remake of RaiderZ have announced that the “capacity of item expressions will be enhanced” in the remake to address the concern of releasing with low-quality and dated graphics. They state that they are doing their best to improve the game’s graphical experience without drastically increasing the PC requirements to play the game. Texture sizes have been increased and high-quality animation effects have been implemented on items.
We don’t want to raise the user’s PC requirements to play the RaiderZ. However, we couldn’t ignore the internal opinion that we must not release the previous graphics(low-quality graphics). It was the opinion that the RaiderZ ‘ s competitiveness can be damaged because of low-quality graphics.
