This week's MMOFTW covers the five biggest stories in the MMO world for the week of January 20th. Devilian is sunsetting, Camelot Unchained has monies, WoW scales its levels, Bless commits to Steam Early Access soon, and Rift gets a subscription only server.
Trion Worlds has announced that it is sunsetting Devilian on March 5, 2018. The decision was made cooperatively between Trion and Bluehole Ginno. Servers will remain on 24/7 through the final day and be packed with bonus experience, gold, gems, Enigma keys and flower drops. In addition, Patron Pass has been turned off and recurring subscriptions will end at the time of closure. Credit sales are also suspended, though anyone with remaining credits can purchase store items at 70% off.
We recently received a tip from an MMORPG.com user that expressed concern over an ongoing Windows 10 issue with Devilian as well as whether or not there will be continued support for the game after the change of "Bluehold Ginno" to PUBG Corp. We reached out to Trion for a comment regarding both and we have their response.
Devilian players will want to head into the game to check out the Spring Fling event that is running from now through April 12th. During the event, killing monsters 5+ levels above yours yields a chance to drop rose petals that can then be traded in for any one of several items.
Gamevil has released Devilian worldwide for both iOS and Android devices. Players will be able to take part in hack-n-slash action by downloading the game via Google Play or the Apple App Store. This is a mobile RPG based on the Devilian MMO with no crossover game play. Just FYI!
Trion Worlds has sent word that Devilian has been updated with the Bloodstained Legacy content expansion. Players can look forward to an increased level cap to 58, an Alvir's Artifacts increase to +12, new gear, new Hell and Heroic Dungeons and the upcoming Halloween event that will run from October 21st through November 2nd.
Trion Worlds has announced the start of a new event that will run through August 4th with players able to loot special tokens, Ice Pops, that can be traded to a merchant for summer-themed rewards.
Today marks a big day for Trion’s Action MMORPG. Devilian’s getting a big new patch in the form of Alvir’s Legacy. With an increased level cap, new dungeons, new gear sets, new PVP currency, and Alvir artifacts, there’s a lot to be checked out when the patch goes live later today.
Trion's Andrew "Drewcifer" Sipotz has posted a new letter on the Devilian site to give players the first information about the forthcoming v1.4: Alvir's Legacy update that will be heading into the game later this summer.
Trion has sent word that a new PvP game mode has entered Devilian. The Terror of the Depths PvP event has kicked off where players can queue up. Once forty total players are signed up, the battle begins with additional players able to join until the one hundred twenty maximum number have arrived.
Trion Worlds has announced that Devilian patron members can claim special rewards from now through May 19th based on the length of their status as a patron. Players can look forward to Plunder Keys, Heroic Plunder Keys, Kavel's Tears Supply Crates, Bloodshards and much more depending on the length of membership.
The April version of the Devillian producer's letter has been published on the game's official site that first begins with a look back at highlights for March and provides a peak ahead for April and beyond.
Trion Worlds has announced that the latest Devilian update has been deployed that most notably brings the Tempest class into the game. In addition, two new Archdevil dungeons, a new raid dungeon and new high end gear are also included.
