Camelot Unchained works on a 64-bit client and lovely new lighting

All this month, Camelot Unchained has been in the thick of its Beta 1 test, and so far, it doesn’t look like the devs are falling apart under the pressure. In fact, it appears as though it’s business as usual for this hard-working team, which is tackling projects such as multi-server testing, new death animations, and a style guide for...

Forsaken Legends team gets diverted into zombie survival territory

It’s been a very long, very strange road for Forsaken Legends. This ambitious fantasy sandbox garnered some attention when it began to sell prelaunch access back in 2016. However, the minuscule team and limited funding kept development at a crawl, with the title downsizing from an MMO and then upsizing back into an MMO at various points. Now it looks...

The Daily Grind: Should all MMORPGs have EVE-style player councils?

A couple of weeks ago, Worlds Adrift announced that it was rolling up a player council, and I did one of those tilt my head to the side thingies and sighed. In my write up, I even pointed out these councils usually have all the power of a student council at a junior high school, which is to say, not...

Perpetuum is back from the dead thank to the Open Perpetuum Project, all with the original developer’s blessing

One of the biggest losses to the MMORPG genre last year was sci-fi sandbox MMORPG Perpetuum Online. The Avatar Creations devs threw in the towel last fall, saying they could no longer afford to develop for the title given a lack of publisher and dwindling playerbase. While the company initially intended to keep the servers online, the expense was too...

Pokemon Go: New Pokemon, quality-of-life additions, and gen 4 hints

Niantic’s Pokemon Go updates are still chugging along and providing fans with more than just new Pokemon. But new Pokemon are kind of the lifeblood of the series, so the addition of Regirock, the storyline line event continuation on August 20th (Celebi hype!), and evidence of other unique Pokemon being added are obviously welcome additions. We also now know that...

Archeage adds new content to its fresh start server

How long is a fresh start server really about a fresh start? You could argue at this point that it’s more of a fresh continuation for ArcheAge players. But perhaps that’s picking unnecessary nits; it just seems relevant as new content arrives on the aforementioned fresh start server, and you probably aren’t going to be visiting Reedwind as the first...

One Shots: Supporting characters

When you look for famous characters in your MMO, you may be looking for someone complete different than the rest of the crowd. Lt. Commander Hikari gives us an example of that with this Star Trek Online pic: “In Star Trek, I’ve always been a fan of Janice Rand. An often underestimated member of the crew (and cast) she’s one of...
