The developer of the popular sandbox MMORPG ArcheAge, XL Games has partnered with publisher Kakao Games to bring to life a new open-world mobile MMORPG called Moonlight Sculptor. Initially announced in 2016, the game is finally beginning to reveal itself with the first three artworks released.
Later this summer, Korean video game publisher Kakao Games will officially launch TERA Classic in South Korea. Not to be confused with TERA EU’s classic server or TERA M, TERA Classic is an upcoming mobile MMORPG that aims to offer a similar gameplay experience to the original TERA on PC.
Players of TERA Classic will go through a new story in the same fantasy world as the original PC game. The game will have large open field areas, raid dungeons, parties, guilds, and action combat. It’s unknown if the game will have auto-play.
There’s a new ride blazing through Black Desert Online. Kakao Games has announced that Doom, the fiery Dream Horse is finally coming, but obtaining Doom will be a true achievement for any veteran player. The new mount is the fastest and strongest among the currently available Dream Horses.
The team behind Black Desert Online has announced that the game’s ‘Shadow Arena’, its first and only Battle Royale Mode will be taken down on April 10th. The short-lived PvP mode was first introduced back in January and had originally been planned to have continuous updates to keep it fresh and enjoyable.
The team states that the focus on new updates was deviating from their original direction partly due to the time being put on developing the Shadow Arena mode. Closing Shadow Arena was ultimately the option chosen instead of making partial improvements.
Getting to level 60 can take a long time in Black Desert Online. Starting now, a new feature will allow people to test out several different “Trial Characters” at Level 60 with 4,000 Skill Points available. A maximum of three Trial Character slots are available, but you can delete and create more new characters if you run out of slots. The characters can be tested in the Battle Arena, Arena of Arsha, Savage Rift, and Red Battlefield.
Pearl Abyss has joined in on the Battle Royale hype! The Korean version of Black Dessert Online is set to launch a new battle royale mode called “Shadow Arena mode” on January 15th. Shadow Arena will set 50 players to fight against one another until only one is left standing.
Players will begin as small black spirits and find fallen adventurers to posses and control. Everyone starts on equal footing and gears in the existing BDO world do not matter inside. The goal is to acquire equipment and skills while destroying nearby monsters and supplies.
Black Desert Online (검은사막) is a sandbox and action combat MMORPG or ‘massively multiplayer online role-playing game’ with fast-paced action combat, huge world bosses, and intense large-scale player versus player combat.
