Jumpgate Evolution : An ION Interview with NetDevil

Posted May 23, 2008 by Jon Wood

Recently, MMORPG.com's own Carolyn Koh had the opportunity to sit down and speak with the team from NetDevil about their work on the upcoming MMORPG Jumpgate Evolution.

Jumpgate Evolution is not a massive update to Jumpgate. It is a completely different game. “Basically, this is a response to focus testing and user feedback,” said Scott Brown, President of Netdevil. “We can’t have Netdevil just do another game. It has to be a great game.”

Once Jumpgate Evolution launches, it will run side by side with Jumpgate until which time, Jumpgate ceases to be viable, if ever. “We still have a lot of players that love the game and we’ll continue supporting it,” said Scott, “Jumpgate Evolution will essentially be like Asherons Call 2 and EverQuest 2. Set in a similar, yet different world. A world of the future.”

At the Connect event in the UK, Netdevil partnered with their UK publisher Codemasters to bring the game to players there. They were able to have the public play test a vertical slice of the game on 50 PCs. “They played the new user experience, and it was the first proof of concept that the new user experience in Jumpgate Evolution works.” Netdevil has treated Jumpgate Evolution as a “Live” project from the get go, with internal testing and developers playing the game. The story takes part in a later time and different part of space, but current players of Jumpgate will absolutely find it familiar.

Warhammer Online : Battle of Altdorf

Posted May 23, 2008 by Keith Cross

EA Mythic has posted an account of a beta battle between the Empire and the forces of Chaos and the Dark Elves, to test the defenses of the Imperial capitol of Altdorf.

The ongoing war between the forces of the Empire and Chaos continues, and this time around their Elf allies have heeded the call for aid. The battle spills over from Ostland and Troll Country into the war-torn areas of Talabecland and High Pass as WAR approaches Altdorf. Victory is a fickle friend as the battles rage at the gates of the great city. Can the mortal army of Tzeentch push the forces of Empire all the way back to the gates of Altdorf? Will they manage to siege and then sack Altdorf itself?

During this round of Closed Beta, testers fought in bloody frays to determine whether Altdorf would stand or fall against the barrage of Chaos and the Dark Elves in Tier 3 areas. Twelve careers for four races were open to play. The conflict between Order and Destruction neared a crescendo in Tier 4 as players tested the overall Campaign, battling back and forth from fortress to fortress on the road to Altdorf.

Lord of the Rings Online : Lorebook Update: Gollum

Posted May 23, 2008 by Keith Cross

The Lord of the Rings Online Lorebook has been updated with a look at Gollum, everyone's favourite pitiful creature.

The creature Gollum earned his name because of the horrible noises he makes in his throat. Gandalf the Grey speculated that he belonged to a race of river-folk akin to the hobbits, which once dwelt east of the Misty Mountains in the Vale of Anduin. Gollum’s tale is a sad and perilous one.

Sméagol, as was his name of old, went fishing on his birthday with his friend Déagol, who was suddenly pulled into the river by a fish. There, Déagol found a shiny gold ring in the silt at the river-bottom. Sméagol demanded the ring as a birthday present, but Déagol refused to relinquish it Overcome by the power of the Ring – for this was the One Ring of the Dark Lord Sauron – Sméagol murdered his friend and claimed the Ring for himself. Banished by his people, he fled to a cave in the Misty Mountains, where the Ring’s power twisted his body and mind even as it prolonged his life for centuries.

Hundreds of years later, Gollum lost the Ring – or rather the Ring chose to be lost again – just in time for the hobbit Bilbo Baggins to stumble upon it. After a lengthy riddle-game in which Gollum tried to cheat his way to an easy meal – namely Bilbo – the hobbit escaped from the cave with the Ring’s aid, leaving the frustrated Gollum to stew in his own wrath until he at last gained the courage to leave the Misty Mountains in search of his birthday present. Since then he has endured many torments, including captivity at the hands of the Ranger Aragorn and the Elves of Mirkwood, and also torture in Mordor at the whim of Sauron. Still he endures, driven by a ceaseless yearning to regain the Ring… his “precious.”

Pirates of the Burning Sea : Patch 1.5

Posted May 23, 2008 by Keith Cross

Flying Lab Software has posted a preview of what's in store for Pirates of the Burning Sea in Patch 1.5.

Every month I write one of these “patch introduction” devlogs and every month it’s the same: Features! Features! Features! This one is different. After spending a few months packing a few big features into each patch, the 1.5 patch is about making dozens of small fixes that will each make an improvement to the experience people have in the game every day.

The one exception to this “many improvements” plan is our second Epic Mission. Fortaleza da Luz is a level 50 environment along the line of Bey’s Retreat. This series of missions has been in the works for a few months and we’re excited to finally be able to show it to you. Fortaleza will be the subject of a pair of devlogs in the coming week.

While Matt and Bryan are working on Fortaleza, the rest of the content team is spending their time in existing missions. Using data mined from the live game we have found a number of extraordinarily difficult missions. Some of these are being marked as group missions (a state that is much more visible in the UI after 1.4) and the rest are being adjusted so that they are of an appropriate difficulty. We are also examining the missions before level 15 to smooth out that experience for people.
