WeMade Entertainment's CryEngine 3 MMORPG Icarus will be flying into Open Beta during the 1st Half of 2014. While there no specific dates the game concluded its final test late last year. The game has been in production for more than 10 years so it should be good. I actually played and recorded a couple 4k resolution videos of the game below for those that want to see the game in superior resolution.
Neowiz Korea is planning on a back to back blockbuster MMORPG release this year with Bless Online and Project Black Sheep. Bless has been receiving a lot of attention lately, especially with the upcoming 1st beta that is scheduled to start late next week. Neowiz wants to attract all kinds of users when it comes down to MMORPG's, so they are also preparing Project Black Sheep for the Action MORPG enthusiasts.
It's nice to see that Blade & Soul Korea will be getting another new update introducing a new area called Hell. The zone will be a bit similar to the previous PvE and PvP area called Floating Islands. Check out the lengthy HD trailer below!
Blade & Soul Korea is getting a brand new set of Valentines outfit that's a must grab! I am hoping that the Chinese version will also get the same outfits, as they are somewhat coordinated with the Korean version when it comes down to clothing. As for the updates, the Chinese version seems to be updating very slow, hopefully new content is to be released soon. Meanwhile, check out the lovely outfits below.
The Japanese version of Hounds an online RPG/TPS hybrid game just went live! The game is currently being published by DMM Japan, so it might have an IP block on login, scratch that, I just logged in the game and discovered that there is no IP block.

Happy Fragging!
