Webzen Korea just released a new Archlord 2 teaser trailer in preparation for their upcoming official live service scheduled to start on October 17th. I will most likely try this game out, but definitely not on the 17th, the timing is really bad because it starts on the same day as Black Desert Online. Anyhow, go on ahead and check out the new trailer below!
The next Closed Beta Test for the Korean version of Core Masters Online kicks off on October 23rd and will last for about a week long. The upcoming beta is open to everyone that owns a KR Pmang account, just click on the red button on this page and it should guarantee you a spot in the upcoming test. If you're patient enough, you can wait for the English CBT found at http://www.rockhippo.com/, though they haven't updated on when their first test will start or haven't even started recruiting yet. Just keep your fingers crossed and hope they are still working on it!
Pearl Abyss and DAUM updated their teaser page today adding a lot of new sections and finally opened the recruitment page for the first Closed Beta. They are planning on recruiting 5,000 testers for the first CBT, which is a lot of people!!! I suggest signing up, especially if you have a Korean friend to help you out. Given they are recruiting so many testers, there is a high chance that you will get in. Now i'm starting to worry about the servers exploding. Anyway, good luck to those who are planning on signing up and see you in the game on October 17th. The upcoming beta might have an IP block so prepare a VPN beforehand if needed.
Bless Online offers an amazing world, but how will the gameplay be like? Nowadays everyone is looking into action MMO's, as for me, I am very open-minded when it comes to gameplay. There were rumors a few years ago saying that they are working on Action Based combat, but I am not entirely sure if they proceeded with that plan just yet or if it's just rumors because I can see some Point & Click gameplay going on in the trailer below. Then there are some scenes that look very actiony, not sure if it's cutscenes or something else. Wouldn't worry about too much, FFXIV ARR turned out pretty awesome despite the non action combat.
Neowiz Bless Studio just released seven new amazing trailers for Bless Online showing off the beautiful seamless world it has to offer. I must say, I am very impressed with the amount of details and that went through in the world. You must check out the videos below. The trailers are split into different categories such as Wind Patterns, Sky Boxes, Day and Night System, World Position Offset, and so much more. ArcheAge is currently in my top list for one of the most impressing seamless worlds and this game is almost in par with it, minus the whole sea adventures. I'm definitely going to have some trouble gaugaing which world looks much more beautiful between this game Black Desert Online and ArcheAge.
Once again Inven Korea, a popular online gaming news outlet uploaded a short gameplay footage showing off some of the starting skills for the four playable characters for the upcoming beta. This is actually worth watching as it will save me sometime on deciding what kind of character to play. I'm leaning towards the Sorcerer class, she looks very evil and fun to play or the Archer agile and stuff. I wonder if you can shoot while moving? Totally skipping Giant was never big fan of big bulky men.
