What’s up Attackers! Kirk here to bring you all the latest happenings in the MMO world for the past, I guess, 10-11 days. Yes, normally this video comes out on Friday, but I was taking a mini-vacation and couldn’t really get to it, you’d be surprised how much work this video takes! Anyways, on today’s episode we have Defiance, Trove, Devilian, Echo of Soul, Overwatch and more! The XP starts now!
Over the weekend we found out that SyFy would not be renewing the science fiction, obviously, TV show Defiance for what would be its fourth season. I’m not here to discuss how great the show was, never watched it to be honest, and although I love talking TV, maybe an idea for another channel, let’s just assume the show fell off a cliff. Anyways, we’re more concerned with the Defiance MMO from Trion Worlds, what was gonna happen to that!? CEO Scott Hartsman said this “Defiance is Trion’s IP and the game will continue exactly as before. The show has always been a fantastic and interesting partner, but the two were always meant to be able to stand on their own.” So we assume for now, the game will remain unchanged for the foreseeable future, and I can go along and pretend the TV show never existed.
Last week, on October 14th, the award-winning and critically acclaimed voxel-based RPG from .. will you look at this, also Trion Worlds, announced that it was ready to expand to an entirely new audience, the huge video game playerbase of, drum roll please .. Mac. Macs? Apple? The computer company that only has about 10% of the worlds computer sales, that one. The original PC version of Trove launched earlier this year, in July and has amassed over 3.3 million registered players, and now they can expect .. .2 million more! Maybe, I dunno, I don’t do the math stuff. The Mac launch includes 12 playable classes, procedurally generated dungeons, challenging lairs and loot, all sorts of loot. You can play Trove on your Mac computer NOW.
I swear I didn’t do this on purpose, I pinky fucking swear it. Trion Worlds announced last week that the very first public closed beta event would be taking place for its new MMORPG game Devilian later this month on October 22nd. The beta will run through October 26th and players with previous access to Alpha testing will be able to take part in the event. Trion describes Devilian as a frantic and devilish action RPG experience. Sign up for Devilian using the link below and let us know what you think when the closed beta hits later this week! OK, no more news from Trion. I hope.
The latest class to join the free to play MMORPG, Echo of Soul is the Warlock. The Warlock comes in two specializations, the Tormentor and the Reaper. The Tormentor specializes in dealing massive amounts of damage over time by wielding an array of curses, while the reaper is a deadly master of melee combat who leach power from their foes and destroy them. The Warlock comes to us via the 1.5 patch which also adds two new dungeons, a tier 5 Infinite Solo Dungeon and a Tier 6 Party Dungeon with new boss monsters. The first player on each server to level their Warlock to level 60 will receive a special title, while anyone who gets to level 60 with their Warlock by October 31st will receive a special costume. Most likely, Halloween themed. Don’t bet me on that.
This is probably too late to report on, but since it’s my fault I’m late on this video I’m still gonna say it just in case you missed it in the past week even though I’m sure every video game website has already let you know about it. Overwatch, the arena shooter type game from Blizzard announced that October 27th would be the launching of the Closed Beta client as us peasants await the first wave of invites for public testers. The team will be focusing on two major goals during its first public Closed Beta event, one is to get TONS of feedback form players on topics such as gameplay, balance and performance, as well as a hammering out of technical hiccups and making adjustments to the infrastructure. To try your luck at getting invited to the very limited closed beta, check out battle.net.
