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.
Perfect World Entertainment is headed to E3 2018 (Los Angeles) on June 12th with their first ever mobile sandbox MMORPG called ReEvolve. ReEvolve is set in a post-apocalyptic semi-realistic world that was brought to its destruction by wars and plagues.

ReEvolve’s world will offer a wide range of ecosystems, weather, realistic animal behaviors, a day and night cycle and animal migration. Seems to good to be true? Well, the game will also offer sandbox features like building and maintaining your very own bases where you can create houses, construct defenses, farm your own crops and breed animals. The game will have a PvE mode where you can fight against the wild monsters that you encounter and a PvP mode with solo PvP and Team Death Match.
Perfect World has announced that starting on June 7th, the monthly premium subscription option for the superhero-themed MMORPG Champions Online will no longer be supported.

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.
