I’m a little more excited this week. Why? Because your two favorite Byte’s were actually being streamed over at G-STAR 2018. You know, one of the largest gaming conventions in South Korea? Yeah. Our faces were on the huge, mounted TV from DG Entertainment. Let’s kick this off with a big one! Yes, we finally have news on Star Citizen! The ridiculously crowd-funded sci-fi MMO that has an expected release date in 2037. If you thought this one was dead.. then you were kinda right. It’s dead, but not so dead that the playerbase has all but abandoned it.. yet. There are still a couple hundred players occupying the game and this update is aimed at them. Sorry guys – you aren’t getting the Lyn Warden this year. Whoopsie! I’m still wrapping up Heavensward with my wife, MrsStix, but this little announcement got my nether-regions tingly. In Lost Ark news, the game finally entered open beta testing this month and players have … [Read more...] about MMORPG News: WE GOT NEW MMOS COMING!

En Masse Entertainment have confirmed that TERA will finally be hitting consoles on April 3rd, 2018. Tree of Savior is currently celebrating its second anniversary this month with an event titled “The Invited Ones,” which will run for around 6 weeks. Webzen announced a few days ago that FlyFF’s latest expansion, Turning Point – Part 2, has been released in both North America and Europe. A new game in the vein of ARK, Dark and Light, Rust or Citadel is currently under development. Not much is known yet about the game, other than the fact that it is set in the Wild West – similar to Wild West Online, and is supposed to be an MMORPG-ish. En Masse Entertainment revealed that they had finally chosen the new character hitting Closers’ servers during the April 3rd update. In their latest update titled Disciples of Rage, Turbine is bringing in various additional dungeons to the Dungeons & Dragons Online MMORPG. 5 new dungeons, to be … [Read more...] about Your Weekly Byte Of MMORPG News: TERA Console Release, ESO Summerset, And A New MMORPG?!
With that in mind, let’s kickstart this article off with information regarding TERA’s EU server merger taking place during the beginning of May. The Windhome update is now live for Kritika Online, bringing with it a large amount of content in the form of a level cap increase all the way up to level 70, new easy modes, new story delving into the past of Kirenos – uncovering the secrets of the land and providing four new danger zones to traverse. Fans of Revelation Online – and I know there aren’t a whole lot of you, have a new feature to partake of: The Colosseum. In other En Mass news, Closers Online has released the new Planar Raid update introducing several new features to the game including the Planar Gate Raid quests, new events, a new level cap for Tina, and multiple new costumes to pick up. Old School RuneScape has sent out its first wave of invites for the new mobile version of the game.

To start things off, if you haven’t already, then head on over to Nexon’s website and fill out everything for the MapleStory 2 Closed Beta. With the Alpha testing for Battle of Azeroth now over, Blizzard has begun sending out Closed Beta invites to test the game out before their launch later in the year. Things have been quiet on Riders of Icarus’ front over the last year. I’m sure fans of the game have noticed this if they haven’t already left due to a lack of updates. What would a news week be if we didn’t have something related to TERA to include, right? In what has become known as the “Aeria Effect” (okay, maybe it hasn’t, but I would love to coin that term,) Aeria Games is shutting down Echo of Soul’s classic servers. After 14 whole years, Ragnarok Online will be shutting its doors to Europe.. Along with Ragnarok Online 2, Dragon Saga, and Rose Online. This is due to the General Data Protection … [Read more...] about Your Weekly Byte Of MMORPG News: MapleStory 2 Closed Beta Invites, Battle For Azeroth Beta, TERA Anniversary
First and foremost I feel like I should start this video off with the latest news surrounding Bless as it is the most hyped MMORPG release at this point. Next up we have Soul Worker’s latest update – bringing with it Jin Seipatsu – another male character that the game desperately needed utilizing my favorite fighting style in action games: Fisting. Blade and Soul is going down a new route with their new Eternal Night update coming May 9. In a surprising (or not surprising if you’ve taken a look at their population numbers recently) move by Perfect Entertainment, both Swordsman Online and Jade Dynasty have been announced to be shutting their doors to players on June 5, 2018. With the closure of their Classic servers and the launch of their new Phoenix update, players can be happy to know that they have added in various forms of additional content, including a new PvP field, two new dungeons, and a new 10-person normal difficulty raid.
