Dark and Light’s free DLC, Shard of Faith, is still slated for this summer

It’s been a hot minute since we checked in with Dark and Light, the Snail Games MMO that’s still technically in early access. It has DLC on the way. But it’s free DLC. But only if you bought the game already. So basically it’s a patch. But it’s got its own Steam page. It’s complicated, in other words. Ahead of...

Massively on the Go: Guide to Pokemon Go’s battle system basics

As much as I love some of the game’s systems that encourage social play, Pokemon Go’s obtuse battle system from the start was problematic. It’s certainly gotten better from the early days in terms of UI design, but there are still some major issues combined with the fact that the difference between having just enough people and one extra person can...

Camelot Unchained’s racial home islands have come a looooooong way

Camelot Unchained’s in beta one now, and as we’ve previously noted, on the inside it’s not much different. On the outside it’s not much different either as the game is still under quite a hefty NDA. That means your average non-backer is reliant on the weekly summaries to have an inkling what’s going on behind the scenes, and fortunately, now...

SoulWorker prepares for new dungeons, a new city, and new Haru advancement

Everbody’s working for souls in SoulWorker. Probably. Why else would that be the game’s title? (Yes, because the weapons the characters use are tied to their souls, it was a joke.) But no one is working harder than Haru in the game’s upcoming endgame patch, since she’s getting a new advancement and a new secondary weapon along with new skills...

LOTRO adds more lockboxes and changes up endgame currency

In a recent livestream, Lord of the Rings Online CM Jerry Snook explained some of the more confusing changes coming with Update 23, most notably the adjustments to Ashes of Enchantment (which will be called “motes” going forward). These motes are used to buy older high-level gear, while Update 23’s new (and better) gear will be available only for new...

Wisdom of Nym: Final Fantasy XIV hits the big five-year mark

Game anniversaries are a little weird. The anniversary we’re celebrating now for Final Fantasy XIV is from its relaunch, not its original launch. For that matter, it’s not exactly a stunning development; if you start counting from zero you’ll reach five years eventually. But it feels like a milestone for the game, a chance to regroup, evaluate what’s happened over...

Elder Scrolls Online is handing out 100K gold for perfect attendance in September

This coming fall is shaping up to be an unusual period for The Elder Scrolls Online. Toward the beginning of August, ZeniMax hinted that it’s plotting big changes to the way the game’s optional subscription works, with a significantly increased chunk of crowns (1650) for subbers along with a freebie monthly item too. At the time, it was telling players...

Ashes of Creation confirms subscription model, allays fears over IP blocking and region locking

More overseas publishing information has trickled out of Ashes of Creation this weekend thanks to players funneling info from Discord to the forums. Readers will recall that Intrepid announced last week that it had chosen My.com to publish the Kickstarted MMORPG in Europe and the CIS region; that ignited a firestorm of criticism and panic over the move, prompting a...

No Man’s Sky works on fixing save game issues, adds archaeology missions

While it’s not officially here yet, No Man’s Sky’s newest patch is making its way through the experimental test server and promises to shore up some key issues with the recent NEXT multiplayer update. It looks like some players were having problems with large save files, er, not saving. Which is not desirable, as you may imagine. The patch purports to...
