ArcheAge : Heroes Awaken Update to Launch September 12th

Posted Aug 29, 2015 by Suzie Ford

Trion has announced that the v2.0 update to ArcheAge is set to take off on September 12th. Called "Heroes Awaken", the update will bring the political system online where players can take up leadership roles on servers that have direct impact on populations. In addition, upgraded crafting houses, guild expeditions and wars and the usual bevy of bug fixes and enhancements will be released with v2.0.

  • The launch of Heroes Awaken will follow the ArcheAge Server Evolution (beginning Thursday, Sept. 10 at 1:00pm PDT (-7 GMT)). All ArcheAge servers will be unavailable for at least 48 hours as we begin the server merge and update the game.
  • After the merge is complete, we will re-open all ArcheAge servers, welcome our newly evolved servers, AND launch our brand-new Fresh Start servers: Rangora and Morpheus! The launch of Heroes Awaken has been targeted for 1:00pm PDT (-7 GMT) on Saturday, Sept. 12, though its final date and time are subject to downtime duration and may be extended. Stay tuned to the forums for the latest timing announcements!
  • For more information on Fresh Start servers and our Server Evolution, please see this article.

Moonrise : Game Cancelled Due to Lack of Profitability & Sustainability

Posted Aug 28, 2015 by Suzie Ford

Undead Labs has announced with regret that its "collect 'em all" PC and iOS game, Moonrise, has been cancelled. Undead Labs indicated that the game lacked sustainability and profitability over the long haul. Moonrise has been in beta on Steam for quite some time and in limited release on iOS. While the game will not be released commercially, the "floodgates are open" to existing players with all existing content now available, and some even updated.

Since we won’t have to worry about whether the game is profitable, we can just have some fun and open the floodgates. We’re updating the game with new Solari, wildlands, dungeons, and clothing shops. We’re also increasing rewards in Arena Mode, making it easier to earn XP and hit upgrade and evolution milestones, increasing drop rates, decreasing leveling time, and generally making the game play faster and easier across the board. We’re also giving every player a free Sunset Pack containing 2,000 gems, 10,000 gold, two Solari Boosters, and a bunch of essences. Detailed patch notes are here.

Servers will run through December 31st of this year. Read the full letter on the Moonrise site.

Som Pourfarzaneh : Is There a Better Alternative to Questing?

Posted Aug 28, 2015 by Suzie Ford

Games like EverQuest and World of Warcraft have given us so much, providing the conceptual framework for the majority of MMOs that have been released over the past decade plus.  Most contemporary MMORPGs, although distinct in their own right, emulate one or more tropes from their predecessors, which in turn were inspired by other video games and pen-and-paper RPGs.  Some of these conventions, such as the use of classes, races, and character progression, still work well across a variety of modern games.

Armored Warfare : Developer Q&A Special Edition Published

Posted Aug 28, 2015 by Suzie Ford

My.com and Obsidian Entertainment have published the latest Armored Warfare Developer Q&A, this time a Special Edition. Answers are categorized in several different groups that includes Territory Wars & Battalion Activities, an extensive section on Game Mechanics, and Miscellaneous.

  • Armored Warfare will be tested on and optimized for Windows 10
  • There are plans to give Early Access participants a gift: the tier 2 Object 155 medium tank
  • The bug where players cannot invite more than 20 players to a battalion (despite the official maximum of 100) will be fixed
  • The infamous Ariete aiming bug will be fixed
  • Currently there are no plans to remove the “stacking” of the same boosts from different retrofit modules. The developers do respect the wishes of players to specialize in one particular area (such as, for example, reload time bonuses). If some of these stacks are deemed too overpowered, it’s possible some sort of stacking penalty will be introduced but this depends on the collected statistics
  • The loss of tank speed when colliding with destructible objects is solved ad-hoc on various maps

Check it all out on the Armored Warfare site.

Gloria Victis : A Living, Open World

Posted Aug 27, 2015 by Suzie Ford

Creating the total immersion has been one of the fundamental goals of Gloria Victis since the very beginning of development. This implicates a need of an open world – a really open one, without loading screens or invisible barriers at every turn. A world which would be as much believable and alive as possible. For this reason the world of Gloria Victis will be implemented as a seamless, homogenous structure, giving the players a chance to visit a quite realistic recreation of medieval Europe and Middle-East.
