Global Chat: Exuberant over SWTOR's combat styles

The recent announcement of this fall's Legacy of the Sith expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic has (as expansion announcements tend to do) reinvigorated the game with a lot of interest.

WoW Classic shares insights on same-faction battleground testing, plans more tests soon

Last week Blizzard raised more than a couple of eyebrows with its plan to test same-faction battlegrounds in World of Warcraft: Classic.

The Daily Grind: How do you style your characters in MMOs?

Not every game has housing, usually for bad reasons. But the vast majority of games at this point do allow you to design your character however you want, either through various cosmetic systems or just the City of Heroes-style approach letting you look however you want.

Make My MMO: Crowfall is one of the biggest crowdfunded MMOs to ever fully launch

This week in crowdfunded MMOs, we celebrate the official launch of one of the biggest crowdfunded MMOs: Crowfall, which originally raised $2.3M between Kickstarter and Indiegogo but with investors pulled in over $35M in total funds by our count. So far, while its population is on the low side and its launch was marred by […]

SWTOR starts testing Legacy of the Sith combat styles

Crowfall's community frets over low population, but ArtCraft isn't panicking

One of the biggest MMO Kickstarters of all time and a long-awaited PvP game launched this past week… but you might not know it if you look around at what others are playing.

Four Winds: MassivelyOP's guide to getting started in Swords of Legends Online

It's a strange trend whenever new MMOs launch that there's a deluge of tutorial videos on a bunch of topics but a shortage of written guides. Sometimes I just need a quick question answered without having to skip the 30-second intro and repeating the video a few times because the speaker was talking too fast. […]

Final Fantasy XIV posts Endwalker benchmark trailer

Let's be realistic: Anyone who can currently run Final Fantasy XIV is probably going to have no problem running Endwalker when it releases in November. The upcoming benchmark for the expansion is mostly something players look forward to for the hint of new job abilities, the character creator with new hairstyles and male Viera, and […]

WRUP: Reasons I knocked down the statue in the front of your yard edition

The homeowners association says "no statues" and I take those rules very seriously, up to and including renting construction equipment to knock over statues when it is necessary. History will vindicate me. The statue in question memorialized the 1984-1992 situation comedy Who's The Boss?, which is morally reprehensible to me and left me with no […]

The Daily Grind: What is the most annoying MMO music track in existence?

As a fan of MMO music, I'm always in tune (har!) with how particular tracks can add or detract from certain zones and cities. A great piece makes you feel at home, excited, or invigorated, while a bad track… well, we don't like the bad tracks. But those are the ones I want us to […]

Betawatch: Launchapalooza

After last week's rather dismal opening, it's nice to know that this week we get to celebrate two games leaving our list because they've both launched for real, no fooling, absolute launch version.

AdventureQuest 3D adds more to the Sandsea Saga while changing up boss rotations

Feel like having some meat between two pieces of bread?

Riot runs a huge multi-game summer event called Sentinels of Light

When you have a growing roster of games under your umbrella, why not take advantage of this fact to throw an ambitious multi-title event that spans the summer season?

Diablo III kicks off Season 24 with a throwback to its predecessor's Ethereal Weapons

This is probably not going to come as an enormous shock to anyone, but the team behind Diablo III also would like you to check out the re-release of Diablo II that's coming in September. This is part of the reason the main theme of the upcoming Season 24 starting on July 23rd will feature […]

KingsIsle actually updated Pirate101 with new content after a period in maintenance mode

Wizard101 and Pirate101 have had quite a year in 2021 already, what with KingsIsle being bought out by Gamigo's parent company and all. Not only did the new owners promise that KingsIsle would continue to update Wizard101 – which it did – but they also hinted that Pirate101 might get some love, after quite a […]

EVE Online has added an early test version of its Opportunities system for new characters

One of the most basic problems of starting new in EVE Online is simply dealing with the fact that there's a whole lot to do and the path from "finding out what you can do" to "figuring out how to do that reliably" isn't always clear. That's the goal of the Opportunities system, then: Give […]

Dual Universe highlights an asteroid tracker and a landing pad for character butts, holds a Q&A session

Walking around in the world of Dual Universe has got to be tiring, but up until now the only seat your poor avatar could have would be in the cockpit of whatever spacecraft you built or purchased. With the game's upcoming Apollo update, that's going to change with the intervention of the "chair surface element," […]

Ravendawn pegs first alpha phase to July 27 for top-end supporter pack buyers

Over the last few seasons, we've been keeping an eye on Ravendawn, a new MMORPG built on Open Tibia. It's meant as an homage to the art styles of classic isometric MMOs, but with a mix of modern mechanics. "Our mission with Ravendawn is to reignite a nostalgic isometric art style focusing on depth of […]

Lawful Neutral: Defining toxicity in the MMO industry

One of my earliest memories from World of Warcraft isn't really a positive one. It was in back in the Wrath days. My guild had just recruited a new member, who jumped into Ventrilo (heh) to hear us chat. One of my guildies was a woman. When this new member heard her speak over Vent, […]

Mortal Online 2 shares its new roadmap and answers questions about crafting, combat, and player politics

The devs of Mortal Online 2 have been pretty active recently, even without taking into account the sandbox's most recent content patch. Take for example a series of three Q&A videos from YouTuber Wolfszeit during the tail end of June, when Star Vault CEO Henrik Nyström fielded questions about a wide variety of topics. Here […]

The Game Archaeologist: Why 2008 was one of the wildest years for MMORPGs

In the relatively short history of MMORPGs so far, there have been a few years that I would say were watershed moments for the genres. And while I'm sure we could quibble over which year was the most significant, the one period of time that I keep coming back to in my mind as the […]

Star Citizen's June development report outlines work on alpha 3.14, standalone tools, and AI behaviors

As we slowly move through the early days of July, it's time for CIG to check in with the development report for June for Star Citizen. With alpha 3.14 making its way to the Persistent Universe soon, a lot of the month's tasks were in service of getting the update ready, with work on the […]

'Non-traditional' DC Universe Online episode coming next month

When DC Universe Online's next patch arrives in August, don't expect the same-old, same-old.

"With this episode, we have taken a significant departure from the more traditional episode formats to focus on new features […]

The Daily Grind: How do you stay in touch with your MMO friends outside of the game?

For some people, the answer to the question asked in the header is very simple: "I don't." And that's totally valid. Some people make friends in a game and then treat those friendships as ultimately temporary. We're both here doing a thing for now and having fun, when we stop doing the thing we stop […]

Massively Overthinking: Which of the summer MMO launches captured your time and attention?

OK folks: We're in the thick of summer now, a summer that's seen an endless parade of MMO launches, mobile ports, expansions, classic servers, console ports, progression servers, major updates, and still some big launches left in the year. The big question is this: Did any of it actually capture your attention? Or did you […]

The Cycle's next alpha opens up player quarters for the first time

We've had our eye on The Cycle since at least 2018 now – it's a PvEvP survival shooter MMO-like that was meant to hit Steam last year. It didn't. But it did get a new release window of Q3 this year, and this week, it opened sign-ups for another closed alpha (labeled as closed alpha […]

Final Fantasy XI launches a new website for its upcoming 20-year anniversary

It's not long now before Final Fantasy XI manages to hit its 20th anniversary. Sure, it's going to be a little while longer, but it's less than a year away.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis continues its ninth anniversary with weekly events and contests

Did you think the initial anniversary goings-on in Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis were all that's happening?

The prime attraction is a set of weekly challenges that task players with completing anniversary […]

Blade & Soul's Endless Night update adds the third Warlock spec and a new instance on July 14

Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover.

First impressions: Monster Hunter Stories 2's demo raises new multiplayer questions

When Monster Hunter Stories 2 was first announced, I ignored it. The original had no appeal to me whatsoever. I actually felt bad when a friend tried to tell me how excited she was about it.
