Sea of Thieves temporarily disables its new open and closed crew feature

Yesterday, Rare patched in a new feature into Sea of Thieves that was designed to allay the rampant griefing going on within player crews. The new open and closed crew feature allows players to select between pugging and only grouping with friends. A good first step, we suppose, except that the studio had to take the system offline due to...

The Daily Grind: What made City of Heroes work so well?

Although City of Heroes is not coming back (I think we all need to come to terms with that), many successors are waiting in the wings with their own vision of how a superhero MMO should be.

OrbusVR sends players up to the Necropolar

The next set of quests for OrbusVR takes players up to the frozen wasteland known as the Necropolar. As you can probably imagine, it’s called that because it’s cold (hence polar) and people die there (hence necro).

ArcheAge holds back the next phase of its Fresh Start server

Hope you didn’t take off any time this week for the next phase of ArcheAge’s fresh start server, because Trion Worlds informed its players that it needs to hold back on this update until it figures out some issues with the help of XLGAMES.
