Fallen Earth : Vehicles Revealed

Posted Jul 22, 2008 by Keith Cross

The folks at Fallen Earth have granted fans a glimpse of some of the vehicles that will be available in their upcoming post apocalyptic MMORPG.

In Fallen Earth, a vehicle can mean the difference between being run down by a pack of mutant dogs and actually surviving your cargo run to Trader’s Flat. In the wastelands, a vehicle isn’t just a convenience; it can be a fortress on wheels, a place to store your gear, and the fastest way out of danger. But in the wastes there is one thing a vehicle never is: cheap.

Each vehicle model has its own abilities, including fuel efficiency, type of fuel used, armor plating, cargo capacity, hit points, and weaponry. Some vehicles run on cheap and plentiful biodiesel, while other high performance vehicles require highly refined gasoline. No one vehicle does everything well, so players will have to decide what vehicles are best for them. Do you want a Tornado for its high hit points and cargo capacity, ignoring its poor fuel efficiency? Or a Wasteland Rider motorcycle, trading off cargo capacity for speed and fuel efficiency?

Players can own up to five vehicles, but may only have one in use at a time. While not in use, vehicles are stored in garages found outside many of the towns in the Grand Canyon Province. Vehicles have persistent locations, so if you leave your dune buggy in the middle of nowhere and log off it will still be out there when you log back on (likewise if you run out of fuel you’ll have to walk back to town to get more). Players can pay money to have their vehicles towed to a garage, but doing so is not cheap.

Pirates of the Burning Sea : New Ships Revealed

Posted Jul 22, 2008 by Keith Cross

Flying Lab Software takes a detailed look at the new ships that will be added with the 1.6 update for Pirates of the Burning Sea, including four new never before seen ships.

We feel like weve addressed most of the crucial skill issues with the changes in the recent builds, so weve been looking at addressing high-end ship issues. As always, everything contained here is subject to change. If theres something specific that you feel should change, then try it out on testbed and give targeted feedback!

 New Ships
One of the big changes in 1.6 comes in the form of 11 new ships. By now, youve probably already seen the announcements for the Archelon,
Cyclone (Test Ship), Dauntless, Mastercraft Couronne, Mastercraft van Hoorn, Monarch, and Treason. We announced these ships through an experimental process that involved the Boarding Party getting to preview the ships before they became public. Keep your eyes open for an upcoming community devlog that talks about the process in more detail.

Tabula Rasa : Depoyment 10.6 on Test Server

Posted Jul 22, 2008 by Keith Cross

NCsoft has announced that Deployment 10.6 is now on the Public Test Server, bringing with it a drastic increase to prices for Grey Market Vendor items.

The main change in this iteration is the 500% increase in prices for Grey Market Vendor items. We understand that this is a significant increase, however we felt that through testing and player feedback, the items were too inexpensive relative to their power.

Weapons have the ability to alter game balance drastically, so the weapon prices were increased, but items purchased at Control Point vendors are the same price. We also noticed that player's rate of prestige gain was higher than expected and wanted to ensure that crafted items would still have an edge over NPC purchased items. We will continue to evaluate Grey Market Vendor prices as we add more prestige based items for purchase.

Wurm Online : New Mol Rehan Home Server

Posted Jul 22, 2008 by Keith Cross

The folks at Wurm Online have announced that they have added a new server for their unique sandbox MMO.

Welcome to the lands of Mol Rehan.

Wurm Online has launched a brand new world; an unspoilt, untouched land of vast mountains and lakes ready for new and experienced players of this unique game. A new land is just that. There are no plans, no roads, no maps, no towns, villages, no people and no story. This is a wild place of forests, lakes, seas, mountains and surprises!

The first of the explorers arrive at Alchemist’s Bay, just a small group gathered round the Town Token. This is a town indeed, but one without any structure or form; just guards, a guide and a few helpful people, and a whole wagon load of promise. Trees must be felled, shovels put to work, mines open, and perhaps a harbour built on the steep shores to welcome those that sail from other lands. For sail in they must, and out from the waves, from the mists and storms of the great oceans of Wurm, row boats, small sailing vessels, graceful ships, in they come to this land, their faces drawn with hope and dreams as they gaze at the mountains dominating the horizon.

What happens next is in the hands of the players. Will they stop to help build Alchemists Bay? Or will they simply buy a deed and head out into the unexplored country? On Wurm, nothing is set in stone; it is all down to the players.

Spellborn : Timeline Series Part Two

Posted Jul 22, 2008 by Jon Wood

The folks at The Chronicles of Speallborn have started a new series of features that will create a timeline for lore from the game. Today, we present Part Two: Death's Dream (Year 0 - 500).

Want To Know More?

Shards: The Shards are remnant pieces of the Ancestor World floating within the Deadspell Storm. They usually shield their interior habitat (oppidan and levee) from outside influences with a gigantic carapace (consisting out of an inner and an outer carapace) stretching over it. Shards should not be confused with Fragments, which might be as large but lack a carapace. Nor should they be confused with Raftyards, which are considerably smaller, also lack a carapace and are man-made.

Runescape : Update from E3

Posted Jul 22, 2008 by Jon Wood's Carolyn Koh was at the recent E3. While there, she spoke with Henrique Olifiers, Head of Games Content at Jagex. Jagex is the company behind the quiet hit MMORPG, Runescape.

Runescape. Everyone's heard of Runescape. Or at least, everyone who reads about the business side of the gaming industry. Runescape boasts six million registered players and one million paying subscribers. An MMOG with one of the largest player bases. So what exactly is Runescape? Not much has been written about it here on since 2004. So I spoke with Henrique Olifiers, Head of Games Content at Jagex to get a quick run down of the game and where it is going.

The original Runescape launched in 2001 was little more than a 2-D interface for a MUD (Multi-User Dungeons) game. Remember those text based MUD games? The precursors to MMORPGs? Maybe not. Not if you are under 35. What this basically means is that Runescape is story and quest heavy. It is a high fantasy world populated by knights, wizards and dragons. It is not fast paced by any means, but the underlying storyline is quite involved and important. Several gods in this world are striving for supremacy and your actions in game can tilt the scale towards any of them.

Warhammer Online : Guild Highligts: Advancement

Posted Jul 21, 2008 by Keith Cross

Mythic Entertainment has posted anther look at the Living Guilds System in Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.  This week the focus is on how guilds will advance in this system.

This week’s Guild Highlights feature is Guild Advancement. In Warhammer Online, a guild is not just a group of like-minded players; it’s an entity in itself capable of gaining experience and moving up through the ranks with the aid of its members. Guild Experience Points (GXP) are earned through the actions and accomplishments of the guild’s members. Guild experience points are the equivalent of character experience points. As specific thresholds of prestige points have been accumulated, the guild advances to the next Guild Rank.

General : Molyneux Considers MMO

Posted Jul 21, 2008 by Keith Cross

Lionhead Studios' Peter Molyneux confirmed that he's been thinking about what an MMO from Lionhead Studios could look like in a recent Eurogamer article about Fable 2.

Eurogamer: There seems to be a lot of MMO mechanics in Fable 2. Are MMOs something you've been thinking about recently?

Peter Molyneux: [Gestures to PR] Well, there's someone in this room to make sure that I don't say too much about that question. I have been looking at MMOs. I love the interaction, and I'm fascinated by the idea of really feeling secure and cool enough to actually do it.

Eurogamer: Have you thought about making an MMO, and about what a Lionhead MMO would look like?

Peter Molyneux: Yes.

Eurogamer: And you can't answer the question...?

Peter Molyneux: No.

Tabula Rasa : Crafting Improvement Details

Posted Jul 21, 2008 by Keith Cross

NCsoft has plans to improve the crafting system in Tabula Rasa and senior game system designer Mike Moore has posted an overview of those plans.

Hello! I'm Mike Moore, one of TR's senior game system designers, and I'm about to begin working in earnest on improvements to our Crafting system. For all of Deployment 11, I have been working on prototyping some small but important changes to Crafting. On evaluation of that prototype, many of us feel like we're on to something good. So, at this point, we want to polish things up and get them out to the Public Test Server and let you guys have a look.

Now, let me make clear from the get-go that the upcoming changes to Crafting are intended to be incremental. We aren't going to publish this as a massive, game-changing update. Instead, we're going to make small changes over a few upcoming publishes. The idea is to ease TR into a new and improved Crafting system rather than throwing it off the deep end.

We've had a Crafting revamp on the back burner for a few months, and now we're in a position to put some development resources behind it. At this point, our rough (and always subject to change) plans are to get an iteration on Crafting up on the Public Test Server with Deployment 12, and then add more incremental improvements in subsequent Deployments.

Some new changes to a few dungeons!

Sebilis and Chardok have new mid-zone respawn points! Also, many of the named critters in Sebilis, Chardok, and Karnor's Castle are less shy and more generous with the quality of their "phat lewtz."
