Neowiz Entertainment just released three new Project Black Sheep Online tech demos showing off many unique aspects of the game. The first video shows off a bit of in game physics, ranging from destructible objects and flying monsters. The second demo boasts fast paced action combat gameplay, dodging attacks, deflecting arrows, and wall jumping attacks. The final video just shows off other various features like enchanting your sword with flame attacks ,ice bombs, and other cool stuff. I'm pretty sure these new tech demos will increase your hype meter for this game. If the videos below weren't enough for you, then make sure you check out my fully detailed Project Black Sheep Preview.
Nexon Korea just released Hurk in the official servers along with a final teaser trailer showing off The Incredible Hurk in action. I managed to get as high as level 60 in the test servers so that I can show off some of his final SP skills like Extinguish Life below. Now that he is officially released, you definitely going to find a lot more gameplay videos of him, especially from players who are planning on switching to Hurk as a main character. I actually had a lot of fun playing him. I've posted a couple more final gameplay videos of him right below. I still think his name is kind of weird, most likely they are going to change it to Herc, short for Hercules, or something weird like Hunk from Resident Evil, just kidding.
Elesis was just released today on the Korean version of Elsword and a lot of users have been uploading some first look gameplays of her. Since I don't have the time to create an Elesis character myself, I thought I'd share some of the gameplay videos of her created by other users on Youtube. Players are already saying that some of her skills looks a bit similar to Elsword. Unfortunately, I can't confirm if they really do or not because I haven't played this game in a very long time. Anyway, check out the videos below if you're interested in seeing Elesis in action, I am sure there are going to be a lot more videos of her coming out within the next few days, especially from those hardcore Elsword players.
Another major update was released for ArcheAge Online introducing a new bad ass Red Dragon field boss. I am assuming that this boss is much harder than the notorious rampaging Kraken. XLGAMES also added more random content like the shopping mall (premium cash shop) in the Market District, a very cute polar bear pet that you can take care of, and many more. I've provided some official gameplay videos along with a random video of a bunch of players taking down the huge Red Dragon!
It has been reconfirmed that NHN and Hangame are parting ways with each other. Starting on August 1st, NHN will rename itself to NHN Entertainment, they are feverishly recruiting new staff members and currently have 200 so far. Just like how other companies are having disputes with each other, turns out this is for the same reason. Another battle between the mobile gaming market and the MMORPG branch. If I may add to this, it seems like a lot of companies are focusing on the mobile gaming market this year. I know this is true because all the games I've been posting lately are mobile *facepalm*.
Park Yonghyeon, the developer of Lineage 2 and Tera Online started a new company called NAT Games. They are hoping to create the next Blockbuster MMORPG title and recently opened up a temporary webpage to recruit staff members. NAT Games previously known as LADA Studio's was one of the well known game studios that was supposed to work on the next MMORPG title for Netmarble Korea. Due to a dispute with Netmarble Korea, LADA Studio's was dismissed from the company. The main reason was that Netmarble Korea wanted to focus on the Mobile Market instead, Now that we have two big secret titles currently in development one by Bluehole Studio which is led by Tera Ex Producer Hwang Cheolung and this upcoming mystery title which is led by Park Yonghyeon. I wonder which one will be better!!?
