SMITE -  Column

Hey there Smite fans! Once again, Hi-Rez has graciously invited MMORPG to cover their Smite World Championship, held at the Cobb Energy Center, in Atlanta, Georgia, from January 7th -10th. If last year’s SWC is anything to judge by, Smite fans will be in for quite an event.Posted Jan 6, 2016 by Terry OBrien

What to Expect from FFXIV in 2016

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward -  Column

Is Beta the New Launch?

General -  Column

After taking time to read yesterday’s feature on The Upcoming MMOs of 2016 it really seems like more and more games that are launching in 2016 are already playable now. I’ve asked this question years ago when beta keys were given out like candy as a marketing ploy to get new players into the game. Betas are supposed to be for testing, at least, they used to be. Now, instead of being used to market a game, they are just outright used to sell the game in early access. Posted Jan 5, 2016 by Garrett Fuller

Perhaps this is a little premature, but in the fairness of a slow post-Holiday news week, you’ll have to forgive us for getting excited about Blade & Soul’s impending head start on January 15th (next week!). So as we’re counting down the days, here’s the info you need to get prepped and ready for the moment the servers come on.Posted Jan 5, 2016 by William Murphy

The Content Drought - What To Do Until Legion

World of Warcraft -  Column

Blizzard has given itself until the end of September to release World of Warcraft: Legion, the next expansion to the game and the one that is coming packed with new features, alterations in core game systems and much, much more. The problem is that that's still nine months away. Even the "bridging" content between Warlords of Draenor and Legion isn't likely until June or July.Posted Jan 4, 2016 by Suzie Ford

Early Access to the Future

General -  Column

Hello and welcome to 2016. It’s great here in the future, there are flying cars and special programs to rehabilitate reddit users into society. Also, videogames are never released anymore, staying instead in a constant state of development. It’s wonderful, there’s no more disappointment as every day we remind ourselves how much potential all the games have. All is well, remember to increase your pledge amount for exclusive bonuses at release! Posted Jan 4, 2016 by Paul Nadin

This month Rob returns with an On the Table that is topical to pop culture. Star Wars is back in theaters so he took a look at the newest core rule book to Fantasy Flight Games pen and paper Star Wars RPG.Posted Jan 1, 2016 by Robert Lashley

That's Not an RPG! 2016 Edition

General -  Column

It’s a new year and that means it’s time to return again to a question we first posed last year: What exactly makes an RPG? As different genres appropriate more staples of the roleplaying genre, the waters continue to get muddier and muddier. Is Fallout 4 an RPG, for example? How about Destiny? Let’s break down exactly what makes an RPG in 2016.Posted Jan 1, 2016 by Christopher Coke

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel Review - Charming in its Antiquity

General -  Column

In many ways, Trails of Cold Steel’s JRPG trappings and gameplay struggle to remain relevant in an evolving genre. Yet, paradoxically, it’s the game’s conventional approach that makes it appealing, a reminder of the formula that has made JRPGs so popular, with several ease-of-use additions here and there to make it more accessible in the contemporary milieu. If you’re looking for something new to play on your Vita or PS3, you’d be hard-pressed to do better.Posted Jan 1, 2016 by Som Pourfarzaneh

My 2016 Wishlist for Tamriel

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

Elder Scrolls Online is one of my personal current favorite MMOs. Zenimax Online may not be perfect, but they sure do deliver great content and seem ready and willing to listen to their players. 2015 had some fantastic updates and DLC, but 2016 could be even greater. In this week’s column, I’m going to list out some hopes and dreams about what to expect from ESO in 2016.Posted Dec 31, 2015 by William Murphy

In case you’ve managed to pick it up after reading our take we thought we’d put together a handy general tips & tricks guide to help you start out in the game. Posted Dec 30, 2015 by Michael Bitton

2016 Wizard101 Wish List

Wizard101 -  Column

With the holidays over and December winding down, it's that time of year for reflection and hope. Overall, I thought 2015 was a great year for Wizard101. Kingsisle squeezed in a lot of big changes and new features that will continue to make a lasting impact in the future.Posted Dec 30, 2015 by Vanessa Mythdust

Crafted Prey

Camelot Unchained -  Column

Before I say anything about crafters I wanted to let the screenshot below sink in. That is a thick forest (an area specifically meant to push the system) with hundreds of players and bots (bots that were designed to be even more resource-intensive than an average player) battling it out in a game in Alpha that isn’t crashing. It’s holding strong and CSE has done very little optimization at this point! CSE finally hit around 3k before their physics system wanted to tap out.Posted Dec 30, 2015 by Timothy Eisenzimmer

On Gender Locking the Classes

Black Desert Online -  Column

One thing that everyone here at MMORPG.com seems to agree on, with regards to Black Desert, Devilian, TERA, and other imported MMOs, is that gender locking classes is an unwanted practice. As a player, you either have to come to accept it, or refuse to play what could be your preferred class. In a genre that’s original intent was to let you play the character of your complete choosing, locking classes behind certain genders seems in opposition of that intent.

Watching 'The Making of Crowfall' in Real-Time

Crowfall -  Column

For example, I’ve always enjoyed the Star Wars bonus videos that talk about how George Lucas found the inspiration for the films, how difficult the original movie was to make and the large number of creative and technical changes it went through. It’s hard to imagine Star Wars with Luke Skywalker as a 65 year-old general or Han Solo as an alien with green skin and gills - but it could have happened. Posted Dec 29, 2015 by Mike Joseph

The Year That Was: 2015's Most Clicked News Stories

General -  Column

As we bring 2015 to a close, it's always entertaining to look back at the year that was and what news items resonated with our readers. These items are the most trafficked, not necessarily the biggest, stories of the year, but sometimes sheer numbers are telling as well.Posted Dec 29, 2015 by Suzie Ford

Why It's Worth Being Hopeful for the Future

Albion Online -  Column

Albion Online is many things, but it certainly isn't shy about its huge grind. In fact, where most games try to hide their grind behind neatly dissected levels and gradual spoon feedings of content, Albion displays it proudly on its Destiny Board—a map that helps you chart your progress through the game. "Look at me," it says. "Look at how many countless hours you will need to spend to ever wield the best items in the game." Posted Dec 29, 2015 by Steven Messner
