BANDAI NAMCO ONLINE just launched the Pre Open Beta Test for Mobile Suit Gundam Online. A few days later they will launch the official Open Beta Test for this crazy siege battle game. Mobile Suit Gundam Online is a large scale 52vs52 PvP warfare game where players control their own mecha. One of the members of your 52 man army will be the commander and they will be able to give out orders to other players on the minimap. This is the perfect game for players who have previously enjoyed large scale PvP games like Fantasy Earth Zero. Hope you guys are ready for some old school Gundam action as you won't see any of those one man army Gundams in this version.
XLGAMES just released a brand new teaser website that you can jump straight to at http://www.archeage.com/preview. The teaser website has a lot new videos and is worth checking out even if you don't understand an ounce of Korean. You'll find a lot of new trailers on their teaser site ranging from Siege Warfare, Kraken, Naval PvP Battles, World PvP, Castles, Farming, Gliding, and many more. Seriously, check it out if you've got the time, plus the newly released full version trailer looks a lot more awesome on their site compared to the Youtube version.
The ArcheAge client is now available for download, I suggest that you guys download the client as early as possible while there are people still seeding the client. For those of you who want the download link, just skip this part and read more. Anyway, the client folder is about 17gigs big so that's going to take awhile to download if your connection isn't awesome or the launcher decides to use up your upload more than download. The character creation event takes place in a few days so perhaps your download might be ready then!
NADDIC GAMES just released a new title called Closers Online - Dimension Conflict. It is an upcoming cel shaded combat MOARPG. Their development team consists of veteran people who previously worked on Elsword Online. The game currently runs on a self developed engine called "NKX" and it supposedly runs really fast at 80 FPS! The style and theme of Closers kind of resembles those cel shading anime looking games like Soul Work Online and Project NT. Anyway, come on be one of the first to read an in-depth preview of Closers right below!

XLGAMES just announced the Open Beta date for the most anticipated upcoming semi-sandbox open world MMORPG called ArcheAge Online. The media day conference just ended earlier today and a lot of people are curious about the status of the game. In fact, the word "ArcheAge" is currently ranked in first place as the most searched word on the Korean Google search engine called Naver. This game has been in development for at least six years now and I am excited that they have finally released the Open Beta schedule. Having personally tested this title out myself in the past, I will definitely be participating in the Open Beta that kicks off early next year on January 2nd, 2013!
