Quite a bit of news has circulated its way around the internet this week and I plan on covering as much of it as I can in this video. So sit back, grab a slice of pizza from the fridge and let’s jump into this weeks’ Weekly Byte of MMORPG news.
Let’s start this off with some news that I’m sure Nexon is happy about: MapleStory 2, the highly anticipated sequel to one of Nexon’s most successful games, Maplestory, finally launched a couple days ago as a free to play MMORPG both on Steam and through the Nexon Launcher.
GameNet has been the local publisher for Black Desert Online in Russia until recently – Pearl Abyss chose not to renew their license with GameNet, however both companies vowed to work alongside one another to transfer over all player data.
In lieu of Bless’ upcoming free to play scam-I mean, launch, Neowiz released a “Road to Bless Online” press release on Steam.
Citadel Studios are proud to announce that their flagship title, the upcoming “living, breathing” classic sandbox MMORPG Legends of Aria is finally launching into Early Access through Steam on December 4th, 2018.
Netmarble held its media conference for Blade and Soul: Revolution on October 11th, and had quite a bit of information to divulge regarding the upcoming free to play MMORPG. Blade and Soul: Revolution, powered by Unreal Engine 4 is based on the popular IP from NCSoft, “Blade and Soul“, released on PCs with a console port in the works, was revealed to have finally been given an official launch date for South Korea: December 6, with pre-registration beginning yesterday.

EverQuest 2 is launching yet another expansion: Chaos Descending. The expansion is available right now for pre-order and will launch officially on November 13th.
After what seems like an eternity of waiting for news on Amazon’s upcoming full-loot open-ended sandbox PvP MMO New World, a video was released on October 11 showcasing some beautiful Alpha footage of an area we’ve already seen enough of – Windsward, a region “composed mostly of grasslands and forests that are packed with harvestable resources”.
