Hi-Rez Pulls an Ace from its Sleeve

Paladins: Champions of the Realm

I’ll admit to being more than a little skeptical that another shooter MOBA could be at all what the online gaming world needs. When Hi-Rez announced Paladins somewhat quietly at Gamescom this year, more than a few people here at MMORPG.com rolled their eyes. Then we played it. And we loved it. Find out why in our first impressions past the break.Posted Nov 27, 2015 by William Murphy

Demon Hunting in Alpha

World of Warcraft

You are not prepared for my first impressions of the Demon Hunter! A new World of Warcraft expansion is like our Olympics, or the World Cup. Every few years it swings around and becomes all consuming, until we forget about it a few months after the fact. Some of us, at least. Posted Nov 26, 2015 by Paul Nadin

NCSoft's Master X Master is More Than Just Another MOBA

Master X Master

MOBAs are the hottest new genre that it seems like every company needs to develop a game for, and NCsoft is no different. The key thing here is that Master X Master, which was announced some years ago and is expected to arrive in the latter half of 2016, isn't just another MOBA. As part of my trip to Korea to check out NCsoft's headquarters in Pangyo, South Korea, we also attended roughly a half hour of hands on time with Master X Master, including a preview of its PvE and PvP elements.Posted Nov 26, 2015 by Steven Messner

Venture Into the Labyrinth in Ascendancy

Path of Exile

Grinding Gear Games is set to release Ascendancy, Path of Exile’s fourth expansion, sometime in early 2016 and we recently had the pleasure of sitting down with GGG’s Chris Wilson for a tour of the expansion’s key features.Posted Nov 20, 2015 by Michael Bitton

A Clear Nod to the Old School Crowd

Tree of Savior

For players who have been fans of Ragnarok Online but who are disappointed in the Ragnarok Online 2 sequel, it's time to listen up as Tree of Savior just may be the game you've been looking for, particularly in light of the fact that Tree is being developed by many of the same fine folks who brought you Ragnarok.

Does It Have What It Takes to be the Next Big eSport?

Blade & Soul

As part of my trip to South Korea, where I spent tons of time with Blade and Soul, learning about NCsoft, and a brief demo of a new NCsoft game that will be making the jump to the West, the big focus was undoubtedly on the healthy eSports scene that Blade and Soul has carved out for itself since it launched in the East four years prior. And now, after four years of building momentum, that scene is about to crack wide open as western audiences are allowed to compete.Posted Nov 19, 2015 by Steven Messner

The Brawler is a Knockout, But Not in the Way You Think

TERA

During a recent preview event, we had the opportunity to both preview the new Brawler class coming with next month's TERA update, Knockout, and a chance to talk to Patrick Sun and the TERA team from En Masse about the update and what it means for the game.Posted Nov 19, 2015 by Garrett Fuller

Launching in January and Primed to Invade the West

Blade & Soul

Come this January, Blade & Soul will finally be available for North American and European audiences—a painfully long wait for those craving the masterful approach to combat in this far-eastern MMORPG. As part of a week-long event culminating in the Blade and Soul 2015 World Championships, NCsoft invited me to get an inside peek at the development of Blade and Soul, experiencing both how it intends to conquer eSports and provide an engaging online world to explore.

Behold the Cold - Polaris Coming Soon!

Wizard101

Things have gotten a bit chilly in the Spiral! Wizard101 recently released the brand new world of Polaris to the test realm. After a series of clever propaganda type teasers, the hype for Polaris was tipping the scale! Luckily, Polaris is cold … and I’m not just talking about the weather!Posted Nov 17, 2015 by Vanessa Mythdust

The White City Under Siege

Lord of the Rings Online

Everyone has her/his own favorite book or film in a series. For the two big ones, Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings, it’s become fashionable to like The Empire Strikes Back and The Two Towers, respectively, and pooh-pooh the others. Yet, Return of the Jedi and Return of the King have always been my favorite movies in those trilogies, as they represent the most epic and climactic moments in fantasy storytelling.Posted Nov 12, 2015 by Som Pourfarzaneh

Kanpani Girls - Become the CEO of Your Own Company [SPONSORED]

Kanpani Girls

Not everyone wants to be the CEO of their own company, but that may change with Nutaku’s web-based RPG, Kanpani Girls. In Kanpani Girls, you take the helm of an all-girl merc company and can hire employees, upgrade buildings, and take the fight to your adversaries with teams of up to five characters.Posted Nov 12, 2015

I’m a Wolf, I’m a Man – Greymane Hands-On

Heroes of the Storm

BlizzCon brought with it tons of new announcements, and several new heroes for Blizzard’s MOBA, Heroes of the Storm. Everyone was all a-tizzy about Cho’Gall (who wouldn’t want to try a 2-player hero?), but our own Bill Murphy wanted to give another one of the new heroes a try… the werewolf leader Greymane.Posted Nov 9, 2015 by William Murphy

How the Warcraft Movie is finding the Soul of the Warcraft Universe

Late Wednesday I got an email invite from Blizzard’s PR about a special press conference with the cast and crew of the Warcraft movie. Since the trailer premiered at the show, the cast and director were on hand, and it was as good a time as any to chat with the actors about their characters, their ties to Warcraft itself, and the process of making an effects heavy film.Posted Nov 7, 2015 by William Murphy

Hands On with Legion’s Demon Hunter

World of Warcraft

The Demon Hunter is World of Warcraft’s new Hero Class coming with the Legion expansion sometime in the summer of 2016 (here’s hoping sooner rather than later). At BlizzCon 2015, we got our hands on the new class and played through its introductory zone, Mardum – The Shattered Abyss. Read on for full details and impressions!Posted Nov 6, 2015 by William Murphy

The Park - Funcom's Secret World Spin-Off is Worth Experiencing

The Park

This review is going to be a bit different from our usual fare on MMORPG. For one reason, the Park isn’t so much a game as it is an interactive movie, and a short one at that. You’ll probably only need 1-2 hours to play through Lorraine’s nightmarish experience, but if you’re a fan of Funcom’s Horror MMORPG The Secret World, it’s more than worth the price of admission.Posted Oct 30, 2015 by William Murphy

Atlas Reactor - It's Like Chess...with Guns!

Atlas Reactor

Atlas Reactor was announced by Trion Worlds at the end of August with shooter fans taking note. After all, the game is one of the first to employ “team-based simultaneous turn-based action” tactics…though that terminology can certainly be somewhat nebulous. Broken into its component pieces, it’s all understandable enough but slapped together? Not quite as clear. That's where we come in.Posted Oct 30, 2015 by Suzie Ford

Doomsday - How Purpose is Being Returned to Capital Ships

EVE Online

My favorite moment of EVE Vegas 2015 was the swell of the crowd when the first new doomsday weapon was shown to the audience that had travelled around the world to pack themselves into the Planet Hollywood conference center. As the laser beam charged, you could sense a spike in tension that, as the beam finally exploded forward and began cleaving a path across the sky, erupted into applause and excitement as fans cheered and screamed.Posted Oct 29, 2015 by Steven Messner

Warhammer The End Times: Vermintide - Paying Homage to the Old World

If you follow Games Workshop you know that recently the classic version of Warhammer has changed a lot on the table top. However, the video games continue to pay homage to the old world with some great new games coming out. Vermintide happens to fall into the category. If you are a fan of survival style shooters (think Left 4 Dead) then this game hits on a lot of solid points.Posted Oct 27, 2015 by Garrett Fuller
