Star Wars Fortnite Crossover Event Going on Now

A Star Wars Fortnite crossover event is now taking place in the mega-popular Battle Royale game. From now until November 17th you’ll be able to get the Imperial Stormtrooper Outfit in the Item Shop. If you buy Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order on PC in the Epic Store you’ll get the outfit for free!

An Imperial Star Destroyer has also been spotted in the sky above the Island though it isn’t clear what its mission is, besides bringing lots of Stormtrooper Outfits. The trailer for the event seems to be suggesting that there will be more. In the description for the video, it says, “The Imperial Stormtrooper has been seen scouting out the Island. What could his mission be?”

It’s really no surprise that there is a Star Wars crossover event taking place right now considering the release of the new game and the fact that we’re just a month away from The Rise of Skywalker. Whatever else is going to be happening in-game you can expect it to take place this weekend so cancel your weekend plans and keep an eye on that Star Destroyer. If you can’t make it this weekend you do have until November 30th to get the skin by buying Fallen Order in the Epic Store.

Check out the trailer for the Star Wars Fortnite crossover below.

Pokemon Go Team Rocket is Upping Their Game

For the last few months in Pokemon Go Team Rocket has been waiting at Pokestops to start a fight with some of their Shadow Pokemon, but it appears that Team Rocket is about to start upping their game. A series of tweets from the Pokemon Go official account show profiles for three members of Team Rocket; Cliff, Arlo, and Sierra. Nothing else is really known about them at this point but there has been speculation that they’ll appear in the game as bosses.

It has also been theorized that Giovanni himself will make an appearance in the game. He appeared at Pokemon Go Fest in Japan earlier this year photobombing players. He has also now been spotted in a new loading screen that features Cliff, Arlo, and Sierra along with a bunch of Shadow Pokemon on the steps of a building that is at least inspired by the Viridian City Gym from the anime.

It would appear that they’re building up to something big on social media but when that will actually take place we will just have to wait and see. Until then there is still a lot to keep us occupied. Altered Forme Giratina is back in Raid Battles and will be appearing in the first few Wednesday evening raids in October. Another, currently unannounced Pokemon will be there for the last two. This month’s community day event is Trapinch, which is admittedly not all that exciting. But, Halloween is coming and we know from past experience that Pokemon Go will have an event for us to take part in. This in some way makes up for the fact that Flower Eevee is the reward for completing research again this month.

Also, during the first two weeks of the event a World Boss drop rate boost will be active. This will double the drop rate for boss items from Garmoth, Vell, Kzarka, Nouver, Kutum, Offen Tett, and Karnada.

All of this is leading up to October 8th when the Kratuga Ancient Ruins will open. This is a new high level grinding spot for players.

This new type of crystal has All Accuracy +12 and Ignore All Resistance +10% effects and can be equipped on main weapons. Players will need a Black Spirit’s Claw to enter the Kratuga Ancient Ruins via Hystria Ancient Ruins and it is recommended that they have an AP of at least 250.

Summer Returns to Echo of Soul

For many of us summer is nearly at an end, but in Echo of Soul it is just getting started. Summer returns to Echo of Soul with all its beach-going fun. Put away your armor and grab some beach appropriate clothes before you head to the sunny island where everyone goes for summer in Echo of Soul. While you lounge on the beach you’ll be able to find summer-themed quests. Beachgoers can also explore the Manta Reef, crack coconuts, and get into water balloon fights with friends.

Players who have completed the summer quests will be rewarded with special event coins that can be exchanged for unique items. Some of the items you can get include a Soul Orb, Spirit of the Sea Flap Flap, and a recipe for Pearl Jam Stew. To get to the island find the Island-savy Dig Duv to get an invitation. Just remember to be dressed for a swim and have your weapons put away. The summer life is no place for armor and weapons. There are also several achievements to complete during the event so be sure to check those out when you log in.

The summer event in Echo of Soul will be running until August 28th, so you’ll have plenty of time to see it all and get back to adventuring. For more details on the summer event head over to the official forums where an FAQ will be posted outlining everything you can expect to see in the event. Or log in and jump right in, the water is fine!

Twin Saga Patch 17 Introduces New Dungeons and Content

Twin Saga Patch 17 has been announced and it is bringing two new dungeons to the anime MMORPG along with additional Senshi quests and several special events. The two new dungeons are the blazing Barren Desert and the dark Crocodile Wetlands, both with their own unique dangers. These two dungeons will reward players with Loyalty Points and Star Points, both of which can be exchanged for special items.

Also in this patch, the magnificent Death Valley Colosseum Battlefield is being released, giving players an all-new place to prove their might. Four additional Shenshi have been spotted, giving all new quests.

Finally, there are going to be an amazing five new seasonal events added to Twin Saga. But, the press release doesn’t give us the details for all of them. We do know that there will be a treasure hunt during the special Flora’s Treasure event. They also mention celebrating Thanksgiving and taking loved ones on a romantic stroll. So, from the sounds of it these seasonal events are going to be somewhat spread out.

We can’t wait to dive into Patch 17 and see what all it has to offer. If nothing else, we here at MMOGames are complete suckers for seasonal events and it sounds like Twin Saga just got a whole bunch more. Though what all of them are we will just have to wait and find out.

Worlds Adrift is Hosting an End of the World Event as the Game Shuts Down Tomorrow

Worlds Adrift is hosting an end of the world event for the last few hours the game remains online tomorrow. Beginning at 7 Pacific Time one final event will be running in the game which can be watched on Twitch if you can’t make it there in person.

The shutdown of this unique spatialOS MMORPG was announced back at the very end of May. In the FAQ about the shutdown they said this about the shutdown; “Making such an ambitious game was always going to be a challenge and we love the game we’ve built together with our community. However, Worlds Adrift has not captured the imagination of as many people as we needed to make it commercially viable.”

Unfortunately, the game was plagued with terrible griefing problems and the addition of PvE servers came a little too late. According to Steam Charts however, the game never really got an audience. Its all time peak number of players was just 2,031 and that happened back in May 2018. There was a little bit of a boost in October when the PvE servers were introduced, but that boost didn’t last.

On the bright side, this isn’t the end of Bossa. In their FAQ they make it clear that the studio will continue and that they always have 3 games in development. One game that we do know is in the works is Pigeon Simulator which will be on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and yes, it is exactly what you think it is.

Fiesta Online Celebrates Its 11th Birthday with a Cupcake War

For the next two weeks, Fiesta Online celebrates its 11th birthday with a cupcake war. First, can we just stop to acknowledge the fact that this MMORPG is still going strong after 11 years? Not many games can say that, so a huge congrats to the Fiesta Online team.

During the two-week cupcake war, players will be fighting their opponents with delicious baked goods. Then at the end players have to offer their rewards to the “Sugar King.” There’s also a special anniversary quest chain in which players have to complete birthday-themed tasks.

While the event is running the main town areas of the game will be covered in decorations. These decorations match well with the celebration-themed outfits and accessories players can get from completing the special quest.

This event is only running for two weeks so be sure to get in on it while you can.

 

Fiesta Online is a 3D fantasy MMORPG laced with anime-inspired visuals that offers simple class variety and an in-depth item crafting system. Hailed as the best MMORPG for new players, Fiesta combines traditional classes with simple combat mechanics to create a game that is easy to learn, and fun to play.

Runescape Double XP Weekend Announced

Do you remember when double XP weekends were happening all the time? These days they are few and far between so it is well worth mentioning when one is coming up…and well… a Runescape Double XP weekend is on its way.

The event will run from July 26th to July 29th, for a full 72 hours. During that time Runescape members will be able to enjoy a 100% boost to experience earned while free players will have a 20% boost. There are a few exclusions to what you can earn double XP from, actually it’s a pretty lengthy list. Here’s the full list from the website:

 

The Double XP Weekend boost is not applied to the XP earned through the following items or activities:

Assist system
XP lamps
Tomes of experience
Ectofuntus
Cremation
Dragon rider amulet
Auto-sanctifiers
Goldsmithing gloves
Brawling gloves
Player-owned house altars
Wilderness Chaos altar
Dungeoneering wildcards
Sacred clay
Urns
Ancient effigies

 

It also does not apply to XP rewards given on hand-in for the following activities:

Quests
Daily Challenges
Jade Vine
Strange and golden rocks
Other Distractions & Diversions
Harvesting animal produce from Player-Owned Farms

runescape menaphos

It does not apply to XP awarded on hand-in of points or tokens. Examples:

Slayer point rewards
Brimhaven Agility Arena tickets
Dungeoneering tokens

 

The Invention skill benefits differently to others:

Item XP is gained at +50%
Making items on a workbench (charge packs, siphons etc) gives +50% improved XP
Disassembling random items (logs, potions etc) will give +50% improved XP
Disassembling/siphoning equipment does not give improved XP
Ironman accounts do not receive an XP boost on Double XP Weekend.

Finally, while stored Bonus XP itself is not boosted, it is still awarded alongside the boost from Double XP Weekend. So a member training a skill with stored Bonus XP on Double XP Weekend will receive +200% base XP.

 

From the sounds of it there are also going to be a number of events and competitions taking place. The details for those are going to be located on the various Runescape social media accounts, the Runescape Discord, and the Runescape Subreddit.
