While everyone is out waiting for a few awesome online titles to be released in the west, foreign gamers on the other hand are going crazy on the upcoming games of 2012. There are a lot of cool titles in the years to come and I've managed to compile a list of my most hyped upcoming titles below including a special trailer for each one. Presented in no particular order, check out my top 10 upcoming games of 2012+ below.
ALT1 Games recently opened their recruitment page for their upcoming SPAARTAAAAAA MMORPG called Troy Online! Some of you may have already heard of this game before because ALT1 Games held an English CBT for it last year. Personally games like this is a nice change from your usual oriental games coming out left and right. I've posted a couple official trailers below along with the full Closed Beta Test schedule, which may help you decide if this game is worth your time or not.
XLGAMES recently released a new trailer featuring naval ship battles against the Kraken, as of today it is still holding the title of The King of the Seas. According to official trailer below, the notorious huge world boss has not yet been defeated. Having experienced many battles against this big bad tentacle monster, it will require a great deal of cooperation and a huge fleet. Watching ships getting destroyed repeatedly by this huge beast will never get old, check it out below!
Continent of the Ninth will be giving away free level 50 characters to any users who have a Hangame NHN Korea account. That's right it's FREE, there is no catch all you have to do is login and click on a button located here. After the patch on January 19th, 2012 you can then pick your character classes with free equipments and stuff. To get your 2nd free level 50 character you will have to level another character to level 20 starting today until the 17th of January. Then after that, well that's a little bit harder to do so the two that I mentioned above are probably the easiest. Unfortunately, they mentioned that you can't pick the upcoming new Bullet Shooter class. I don't know about you, but I will probably watch the trailer below to see what kind of level 50 character looks cool.
NeoAct released another new hero today named Elcid, he has a lot of skills that sound a bit overpowered. His main skills are a single target stun plus damage, an invincible mode, aoe damage to enemies, and a magic shield that gives a super buff to all allies. The official youtube Chaos Online channel released a new character introduction for him that you can check out below. Along with the recent release of this new hero, they have introduced a mode where you can play with AI's on your team. Since I recently won this hero for free, I will have to try him out sometime this week!
