An official announcement and website for Maplestory 2 just went live today, all the Maplestory kids are raging because it's going to be a totally different game compared to the previous one. Not only that, a lot of them probably sunk a lot of time in the previous Maplestory. According to Betanews.net, Maplestory 2 is a "3D MMORPG with a quarter view(click)." The teaser page found at http://maplestory2.nexon.com/, contains a hidden trailer. To access the trailer, you must click on the clouds. If you're the lazy type, you can check out the trailer below ^_^/. Lastly, the game is scheduled to launch sometime in 2014 in South Korea.
The second Closed Beta for Black Desert Online is scheduled to start early 2014 next year. I'm a bit late with this news, but better late than never. For those that are curious about the upcoming playable characters, there are currently four in development and they are hoping to add them in the next beta. Sounds exciting, I had a blast with the first beta. I stayed up all night testing PvP'ing, Questing, Grinding, getting PK'ed, and more. Definitely looking forward to the 2nd test, exploring the new areas and trying out the new classes.
The WolfKnights Online website went live a few days ago in preparation for the upcoming unscheduled surprise alpha test. The newly released website contains a lot of new information about the game along with many other things such as a client download page, new images, and a brief explanation of the up coming playable classes. Speaking of which, the upcoming characters may or may not be gender locked. The first character is a Defender that is a very tanky character, a Fire Mage which I assume is what it is, a Templar that looks like a battle priest, a male Musketeer with a weird smug look, and a female Gladiator an offensive type of character.
Every now and then, I'll end up finding cute Japanese titles like the upcoming game called Gensou Senki. I'm digging the chibi or super deformed style the game has to offer, the artwork isn't that bad. There might be a Taiwanese version of this game floating around somewhere, but since I can't really read TW I will have to wait for the Japanese version instead. Games published by this company usually don't have an IP block so I am looking forward to beta testing this game during my spare time.
Nexon Korea and THINGSOFT updated their Peria Chronicles teaser page today in preparation for the upcoming G-Star 2013 event that is scheduled to take place two to three weeks from now. Follow up with the new website by clicking this link. No new trailers have been released just yet, I am assuming they are waiting until the convention goes live. A lot of new screenshots along with a short fashion show slide can be viewed at the official teaser page or below!
Nexon finally gave Project NT an official title and is now called The Chronicles of Peria or Peria Chronicles for short. No new information has been released just yet other than a brand new title.
