The North American and European version of Kingdom Under Fire II will be available sometime in 2014. As many of you may already know, the SEA version of this game will be released some time this year. The first Closed Beta date is still being discussed, so just wait a little bit longer. The game will not be released in South Korea first even though they had a first Closed Beta Test of it a few years back. I hope that the SEA version will have some kind of English translation so I can jump in and poke stuff! I've collected a bunch of raw gameplay videos from the previous beta along with a promotion trailer for your viewing pleasure below.
DAUM and Pearl Abyss updated their Black Desert Online teaser page today with 20 news screenshots showing off the upcoming housing and mount system. I've noticed they posted a lot more screenshots with the tent system, which kind of works like a portable camping system similar to Mabinogi. Very interesting! If you're new and want to learn more about the housing system, you can do so by checking out my old Black Desert Preview 2. Other than that, enjoy the new screenshots below!
The Attack On Titan Online website was updated today with new sections featuring game guides, character introductions, news, events, and more. The teaser trailer that was supposed to be released with the new website layout magically disappeared. I was really looking forward watching it. The upcoming Closed Beta has been rescheduled, so don't panic thinking that you've missed it. They haven't announced any specific date for the Closed Beta just yet, other than coming soon. I'm kind of interested in trying out this game, despite the crappy looking graphics it has to offer. It might be fun!?
Gravity just started taking Pre-Registrations for their upcoming new iOS title called Ragnarok Ash Vacuum. Unfortunately, Pre-Registering grants players a special item once the game goes live. Unfortunately, it will require a Korean Cell phone but once the game is released, you should be able to download the game just fine by easily creating a free Korean Itunes Account. Not much information is out yet, other than the fact that you will have to build buildings and fight against other players. I am guessing that Gravity is planning on releasing a lot of teaser videos and screenshots of the game like they did with their recently released MORPG called Tower of Ascension.
It looks like Japan is going to shutdown another set of titles in the upcoming months to come. Some of the games being shut down are new titles such as Fighters Club Online, Dragona Online, Seiken Online, Carte TCG along with six to eight other titles. I am not surprised seeing as most of the game companies are now focusing on smart phone games due to less production money and small chance of becoming much more popular. Then again it depends on the online game, some games are still actually doing very well like Gravity's Ragnarok Online and SEGA's Phantasy Star Online 2 which recently hit over 3 million registered users.
