Two new classes are coming to Tree of Savior! IMC Games has released the class previews and vocal BGM by SFA for both of them. The first class is the Pied Piper which is a class that utilizes music to control and fight enemies. The second class is the Exorcist which uses spiritual powers to weaken and banish enemies.

Before Dynamight Studios launches the crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for Fractured, their in-development “anti-grind” sandbox isometric MMORPG, they have decided to release a preview of the prices and contents of the Pledge Packs.

With the open beta coming so soon for the upcoming multiplayer co-op monster hunting game Dauntless, developer and publisher Phoenix Labs has released the game’s intro cinematic. The video introduces the game’s floating island setting and the the start of what all players of Dauntless will be participating in: hunting behemoths.
Over 100,000 players have already participated in Dauntless’ closed beta and at least another 700,000 players are confirmed to be registered for the upcoming open beta on May 24th. During the open beta, all players will have unlimited access to the floating islands of Dauntless. The game’s open beta was previously expected to release back in 2017, so Phoenix Labs has had time to build up a long list of excited players. Sign up on the official Dauntless site to play the open beta later this week.
In the Netease Games annual conference, Chinese developer and publisher Netease has revealed two major releases for the Revelation Online IP in 2018; Revelation Online 2.0 and Revelation M. A new era for the Chinese version of Revelation Online will open sometime in the summer as the game revamps its graphics and introduces a new area that roughly translates to Wing World. The new area marks as the next and second expansion of the nine worlds in Revelation Online’s lore. The expansion will introduce a large new area that consists of dozens of floating islands, expand the game’s main and side stories, and introduce new gameplay features.
Wild Buster: Heroes of Titan is an odd cross-over between hack’n’slash MOBA and MMORPG that was initially released as a free-to-play game in South Korea. Its publisher InselGames released the game as buy-to-play in North America just five months ago in December of 2017. Now Insel Games has decided to transfer Wild Buster’s publishing rights to IDC Games, a publishing studio with other MMORPGs like Weapons of Mythology: New Age and Margonem.
The transfer has changed the name of the game altogether from Wild Buster: Heroes of Titan to Champions of Titan. The new publisher has also decided to use a free-to-play business model, perhaps as Insel Games should have done when Wild Buster first launched in the West.
Developer and publisher Webzen has announced that MU Origin, the open-world mobile MMORPG set in the same universe as MU Legend will no longer be available on Netherlands’ Google Play Store and Apple App Store due to new laws regarding in-game loot boxes. The recent judgement passed by The Netherlands Gaming Authority will be imposed on June 20th, 2018.
Webzen assures that this will not have effects on the service of MU Origin in other regions. There is no mention of any compensation in the announcement.
One of the largest and most complex systems in Bless Online is its taming system and Neowiz is quick to draw attention to the extremely wide array of pet and mounts that are tamable in the game’s open world. Neowiz claims that when early access begins, players will find 660 unique creatures available for taming. Does that include the humanoid NPC enemies that are tamable as minions/servants? Who knows? 660 is a hard number to verify. Granted, in my experience playing Bless I would say that I have tamed at least three or four hundred different creatures, so the number isn’t far fetched at all.
Black Desert Online has a knack for IP restrictive region-based servers and now the Japanese version is breaking the habit by what seems to be a low-key invitation for the world’s Black Desert Online fans. A Twitter user by the name of mellopachi has tweeted a picture of an announcement slide for a non-IP restricted test server for the Japanese version of Black Desert Online.
This is from Black Desert Online’s 3rd Anniversary Party that took place on May 20, 2018 at the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa (Tokyo, Japan). Extracted from the announcement image, we also know that players will receive a certain level of equipment that is prepared in advance to assist in testing, the pearl shop will be disabled, only Japanese language is supported and a bulletin board will be opened for posting feedback.
RF Online, the Scifi/Fantasy MMORPG originally named Rising Force has launched a brand new server named Pegasus on May 15, 2018. What is so good about this server?
