Guild Wars: Eye of the North: Review
Eye of the North was released four years ago and was the final expansion for Guild Wars. In our latest review, MMORPG.com's Som Pourfarzaneh checks out Eye of the North and offers his thoughts on how it holds up after four years.

There's no denying that Guild Wars 2 is one of most hotly-anticipated MMOs on the market. ArenaNet and NCSoft have the potential to shake up the genre with all of the innovative concepts that they're putting into their new MMORPG, a true sequel to the original Guild Wars. Mobin Koohestani recently re-reviewed Guild Wars Trilogy, which is a compilation of the original three campaigns of the game, and with the release of Guild Wars 2 coming in 2012 and hopefully a beta this year; we're of the mind that now would be a great time to take a look at Guild Wars: Eye of the North.

Star Wars: The Old Republic: Sith Marauder Preview
Bioware has blown the lid off of coverage of Star Wars: The Old Republic and MMORPG.com Community Manager Michael Bitton takes a look at the Sith Marauder.

The Marauder's gameplay is equally as brutal as its story can be. You build rage with certain attacks (similar to Warrior classes in other MMOs) and you spend it with others. The class is one of little finesse; you won't be twirling around doing pirouettes with a double-bladed lightsaber. No, instead you'll leap upon your enemies from 30 meters away using Force Leap, only for them to collapse under an unrelenting flurry of strikes from not one, but two lightsabers. Force Leap, unlike the many charge moves available in many other MMOs, can leap up (or down) several levels of elevation as well. As I described back in April, there is nothing like jumping on someone who thinks they are safe several stories above you. You're never safe around an angry Marauder. Oh, and forget force lightning - you can roar at people.

Game of the Week
TERA is an upcoming 3D fantasy MMORPG. TERA intends to set itself apart with its lack of targeting, giving players full control over each move instead of targeting or hotkeys, emphasizing skills in combat. Additionally, the world will not be instanced, placing all players in the same space. This is also significant since player influence will play a huge role in shaping both Tera's economy and its community.

There are set to be six races, with eight classes to choose from, each locked in an ongoing war to protect his or her kingdom.

Learn more about TERA here, or check out our game list here.
