We hope PlanetSide 2 players are prepared for their new robot overlords, because they’ve already dropped onto the surface of Auraxis. Nanite Systems Operatives (NSOs) are a new “faction” in the game, which arrived in yesterday’s big patch for the game, along with DirectX 11 support, a new event, and changes to the spawn system. NSOs are robotic soldiers available to all three factions. When a Member selects an NSO — they’re limited to PS2 subscribers — and a continent to play on, they’ll be assigned to whichever faction has the fewest members. The obvious intent is to try and balance out the sides and provide more interesting fights, but Daybreak said that the NSOs will also “invigorate some of the PlanetSide 2 lore.” NSOs have their own gear, can play as any of the five non-MAX-suit classes, and cannot spawn faction-specific ground and air vehicles, but otherwise play exactly like human soldiers. Also in yesterday’s … [Read more...] about PlanetSide 2’s Nanite Systems Operatives Enter The Battlefield

With Star Trek Online’s Mirror of Discovery out and live and launched, PWE has kindly granted Massively OP a bunch of goodies to give away in honor of the release! We’ve got 10 codes for the Engle-class Mirror Escort Carrier and 100 codes for the NX Class Light Escort and Elite Services Starter Pack, all for our PC readers. “The Engle-class Mirror Escort Carrier [T6] is retrofitted from a ship that crossed over from the 23rd century into present-day space. A fearsome Terran vessel, this starship’s capabilities and integrated technologies emphasizes the Terran philosophy to not only crush the enemy, but make it hurt the entire way. This brand new starship can be used as soon as players have completed the tutorial and will scale as they level all the way up to 65. *This code is only eligible for the PC version of Star Trek Online and can only be redeemed by a single Federation or Federation-aligned character on a single account.” … [Read more...] about Enter to win a Star Trek Online PC Mirror Escort Carrier, NX Light Escort, and elite services starter pack
(Update August 22, 9 pm local time: This giveaway is closed. All winners will get their codes via email, so you won’t have to do anything. Just wait a bit…) Trion has been very generous and as such, we did not only get codes for Rift, but codes for Atlas Reactor as well. In case you have not heard about the game yet, Atlas Reactor is a turn-based battle arena. It has the obligatory PvP mode, but it also has a nice PvE mode where you can either play against bots with other players or purely with and against NPCs. So even if you like such a game but do not like PvP at all, Atlas Reactor offers you the chance to enjoy it anyway. Having said that, we are giving away 10 beta codes. Atlas Reactor has a “Free Mode” which is available right now already. Download the game and play it. However, there are some restrictions. Once you buy the game, you are free from all these restrictions. Or, if you use a beta code, you are free from these restrictions throughout the beta. … [Read more...] about Atlas Reactor Giveaway: Grey’s Citadel Skin, Loot Matrices and more beta codes!
(Update: All codes are gone!!) We still have a few codes left for Atlas Reactor and since there is an expiration date attached to them (first Monday in September), of course, we would like to see them get to new owners soon! So this giveaway is a bit different from the ones we usually do. The first three people to comment here stating that they would like the codes will get them. But first, a short reminder of what these codes are about: “Atlas Reactor is a turn-based battle arena. It has the obligatory PvP mode, but it also has a nice PvE mode where you can either play against bots with other players or purely with and against NPCs. So even if you like such a game but do not like PvP at all, Atlas Reactor offers you the chance to enjoy it anyway.” (quoting myself here) If you belong to the first three people, you will get an email with three codes (for this, please make sure to enter a valid email address into the “email” field): Grey’s Citadel Skin … [Read more...] about 3 “code bundles” to give away for Atlas Reactor (all codes are gone!)
A bunch of players logged into their emails to find some bizarre notifications this week. For some, they were learning that not only had their subscription been cancelled but their accounts were permanently disabled. While MMO Fallout is not a stranger to reports of mass bans over cheating or bug abuse, this one is a bit peculiar. As it turns out, Zenimax Online permanently banned players over their Morrowind game codes. The issue, at least for many, appears to stem from the player having entered an early access code for Morrowind without later entering in the full product code (which would indicate that they pre-ordered for early access and simply cancelled). Others noted that they had cancelled their pre-orders due to issues with Amazon not shipping/delaying physical copies of the collector’s edition. Others went further, stating that they had not only received their copies but had entered the codes only to find their accounts banned due to not owning the content anyway. The … [Read more...] about Zenimax Permanently Bans Hundreds of ESO Accounts Over Morrowind Codes
