Comic book online brawler Marvel Heroes is up to update 1.2 now and this has launched some additional content. Now, in the massive multiplayer online (MMO) game, players can look forward to new characters, game modes and locations.
For starters, difficulty modes now include Normal, Heroic and Super Heroic, to give veterans a challenge as well. A new zone called Queens Bank Heist is added, which harbors Black Cat. There are also new Relics, Uniques and Artifacts to look forward to.
Maybe this is why I’m missing out on the new X-Men. That outfit seems to translate weird in polygons.
Last but not least, the promised Emma Frost takes the stage as a playable character. She can use her mind to launch powerful attacks or control enemies, like in the gameplay trailer, where she makes a dinosaur her slave.
There are also character profiles for Spider-Man, Thing Fear Itself and Cable, which give us a rundown of their skills and some tips on how to play with the heroes. In particular, we think Spider-Man might be the most overpowered with his ability to slow down hordes and become nearly invulnerable for a period of time.
It goes by so fast: Guild Wars 2 is 1 year old and has released some interesting numbers to celebrate this. By now, it should be apparent that the massive online (MMO) PC title was a roaring success, but it’s still impressive that it was this successful. In fact, the infographic that was released for this news starts off by proclaiming that the game was the fastest selling MMO ever released. Take that, World of Warcraft.
More statistics follow such as the launch peak of well over 400,000 players at one time, which was quite the pain, but still playable. That alone is commendable. Also, it seems my choice of a Charr and Norn character didn’t match up to the community’s large preference to human characters, which made up 36% of all choices. Then again, my Engineer choice was just as poorly chosen, against much more popular classes. Guess I’ll take out my hipster glasses. There are many more stats to be seen in the infographic, which we’ll post below.
Online games portal Wargaming has announced a release date for World of Warplanes, to follow up their popular World of Tanks massive multiplayer (MMO) title. Warplanes will descend upon Europe and America on September 26, 2013, though you get it a day early if you’re one of their Eastern European followers. That’s called fan service.
It looks like Wargaming will already have a sizable community to start with, as World of Warplanes accrued 3 million players over their Beta period. Over one hundred airplanes will be available at launch, ranging from countries like the United States, Germany, Russia, Japan and England. An orchestrated cinematic trailer accompanies the release.
So, the massive multiplayer roleplaying game (MMORPG) Neverwinter has been out for a while and it’s getting bigger as well. Therefore, this is the perfect time for an accolade trailer. We’ll get to see just who thinks the game is awesome and also, there’s a neat blurb saying they already passed 2 million players. That’s not a bad start.
More so than just that, the game also received an infographic with some more statistics. For instance, there are nearly 4 million companions roaming around the Forgotten Realms of Dungeons & Dragons. That’s a lot of pets. Each stat also comes with an analogy, because those are cool.
After its revival a little while back, massive online game (MMO) RF Online 1.5 adds a summer update today, which will include new rewards for its players. If you’ve ever wanted to battle in mechanical suits against your fellow man, now would be the time.
Returning players can get themselves an Amazon Gift Card of a 7-day Hunting Jade. For newcomers, 2 items will automatically be added: the Beginners Ring and the Beginners Amulet. During the summer update, the Cash Shop will be 20% off and people that purchase from there participate in a lottery to win Hunting Jades. Additionally, classes have been rebalanced, traps and solo gates have returned and the crafting system has been optimized, as well as the interface.
