SOFTMAX finally updated their Official Facebook Page mentioning "Coming Soon" and "2015" for the highly anticipated The War of Genesis 4 Spiral Genesis. I am hoping that this will finally be the year, since the title kept getting pushed back ever since its debut. More details below for those interested in a new style of MMORPG.
Daum and PearlAbyss will be implementing the new Tamer class for Black Desert Online this month. Not much information has been revealed yet other than the new short trailer that can be viewed below. The Tamer looks like a close combat type of character, a bit similar to the Sorceress. She will also be able to mount on her dark beast and fight on it, looks good to me!
Nexon Korea and NaddicGames just added a new playable character today in Closers Online. J the Fighter is a close range combat character who relies on his speed, fists, and crazy kicks! They also added his costumes in the cash shop, for the players who end up liking him. J's fighting style reminds me of those old school beat'em up games like Final Fight or Double Dragon.
The Black Desert Open Beta kicked off with a rough start last month where players were able to exploit game mechanics. The first set exploit consisted of users killing monsters that dropped a lot of gold and monsters that gave abnormal amount of experience points. The second wave today was with players abusing something with the shop, buy back dupe, and more. PearlAbyss and Daum is taking this seriously and have permanently banned users who exploited such bugs along with deleting all money and items from players who lightly abused such bugs.
Tencent Games just released a new benchmark utility for the CryEngine 3 version of Monster Hunter Online. You can check out the new video below or take the benchmark for a test drive for fun. Both the installer and the client is available in English, which is a nice for those who are unable to read Chinese. Enjoy!
The first of the many upcoming updates for Closers Online Season 1 just went live today unlocking a new agent rank for Seha Lee along with new areas. The new uniform and skills is obtained after completing the agent license rank quest at level 40. Meanwhile, Seulbi and Yuri will be receiving their promotions sometime in January along with a new agent added to the playable Roster. Will it be J or Mistletein?!
