Korean MMO MU Online Is Dishing Out Pre-Update Goodies

MU Online is a Korean MMO with a global following that began in 2001, a lifespan which has seen its influence extend to many similar titles to this day. The game takes place on the titular continent of MU and boasts all the classic features of a fantasy MMO, complete with a choice of eight unique classes: Dark Knight, Elf, Dark Wizard, Summoner, Rage Fighter, Magic Gladiator, Dark Lord & Grow Lancer. 

Developers, WEBZEN, have recently announced that the Season 15: Part 1 Update is due for release on 14th July. The update will include exciting new content such as the addition of a new character, Slayer, and the opening of a speed event server for quick levelling. Perhaps the most exciting part, however, is that players can reap the rewards of a celebratory pre-registration event, taking place right now.

Players who pre-register for the new update will receive a coupon that includes a Scroll Package (7 days), Demon Pet (7 days), and Bless of Light that can be redeemed during the event period. Even if you decide not to pre-register, by simply playing for an hour, players will receive a boost package which contains Bless of Light, Wizard’s Ring (1 day), and Talisman of Ascension II (1 day). 

Moreover, the Korean MMO will bestow on those superfans who have accumulated more than 150 hours of gameplay since the beginning of July with the ability to claim a Skeleton Pet and Ring (each 7 days). Clearly this is a title that has mastered the art of keeping its players engaged.

Fantasy MMO TERA Unveils Dungeons, Quests and Bling

TERA, the beautiful free-to-play fantasy MMO from publishers En Masse Entertainment, has received a new update. The beloved title takes place within Arborea (with the title, TERA, standing for ‘The Exiled Realm of Arborea’) which is itself a physical manifestation of the dreams of two titans, Arun and Shara. You know those dreams you have where you create entire worlds, races, gods, sagas and life and death themselves in your head? Well, that’s TERA!

The most recent patch introduces a new dungeon challenge, adventure system, and shiny new loot box treasures.

The Draakon Arena plays host to the notorious azart force commander, Kalligar, who awaits the challenge of a 5-player team. This dungeon is the first specifically designed for level 70 players and can be taken on in normal or hard mode. The rewards include the top-of-the-line Warlord Ring or Warlord Necklace accessories and potentially some resizing stones.

The Partner Adventure System bestows a little autonomy upon your companions, allowing players to send up to three partners on solo quests in the name of acquiring more sweet loot. Successful adventures can rustle up gatherables, skills advancement scrolls, relics, halidoms and even dungeon rewards. Upgrade your partners and the rewards they discover by teaching them the Gifted Skill: Adventure Enhancement and curtail their adventure time by using the new Instant Completion Tickets that can be found in level 65+ dungeons.

The third part of this update unveils Balder’s Radiant Weapon Skin Loot Boxes – a mouthful of a feature which does what it says on the tin. Balder is a god whose eyes were given so that the children of the Dream could see through the darkness. The weapons themselves are apparently gold and bejeweled, emitting a glow and ringed particle effect reminiscent of Balder’s splendor! If sporting one of these opulent pieces in a fantasy MMO isn’t the very definition of flexing, then I don’t know what is.

Bring Me That Horizon – Margoria Opens Up for BDO Console Players

Black Desert Online – winners of our most beautiful MMOs hotlist – have doubled the size of the world for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players by unveiling the Great Ocean of Margoria. This vast ocean harbours a whole new world of treasures, creatures, and secrets awaiting discovery – but not without first posing a challenge. 

Console players can discover Margoria via a new harbour found to the north-west of the mainland. Either captain a ship and embark on a voyage or don your diving gear and plunge the depths to gather resources. Sailors who choose to manually captain a ship will earn sailing experience towards mastery over the sea and their vessels. 

But this new world brings new perils, and not just the tentacled kind. While seaborne monsters promise lucrative rewards for those brave enough to tangle with them, destructive typhoons can also tear across the waves, threatening to submerge unsuspecting seafarers. Not only that but legends of a Margorian Phantom Ship tell of how an unlucky few will see the sky turn black and their ship reach a sudden stop, though only the bravest adventurers will discover what happens next.

There’s a lot to look forward to with this new update – but here are the key features to anticipate:

  • Guild-vs-guild naval combat – Guard your wealth and trade routes by defeating rival guilds in fierce ship-to-ship combat.
  • Ship construction – Build your private sailing ship or work with your guild to build powerful galleys that are packed with firepower.
  • New harbors and ocean – Establish lucrative trade routes as the trading system expands to the open seas.
  • Sea monster hunting – Take down the terrifying sea monsters that live in the depths of the Margoria ocean and earn guild silver.
  • Enhanced skills – Reel in new species of fish in the Margoria ocean and gather other ingredients to improve your cooking skills.
  • New quests – Meet new characters and continue on your grand adventure
  • Dynamic weather system – that will affect gameplay in new and unexpected ways.

Free-To-Play Fantasy MMO Ragnarok Online Turns Village into Powerhouse

Developers Gravity have implemented the latest update to their flagship title. The free-to-play fantasy MMO Ragnarok Online now hosts vast changes to the village of Veins, the introduction of God items, a new auction event. 

Ragnarok Online is an illustrious free-to-play fantasy MMO which has been around since 2002, establishing it as one of the true originals of the MMORPG world. Over the years, the game’s landscape has been repeatedly warped by its ongoing narrative, following an ever-flowing timeline which you, the player, can experience in real time. 

This latest update continues that characteristic by transforming the familiar yet previously inconsequential village of Veins – a village lost within the canyons of Arunafeltz. Formerly consisting of just a few adobe shacks, this little settlement will soon become an industrial centre swarming with adventurers, merchants and scientists. Following the opening of the Arunafeltz borders, the unique geological composition and minerals found around Veins, and in particular the Hetarium, promises to lure both researchers and tourists alike. 

Additionally, this latest update will introduce God items – extremely powerful artifacts that are as rare as they are mighty. A distinct set of parameters must be met in order to obtain them, including prerequisite quests to be completed by the population of a server. Additionally, only Guild Leaders with access to guild dungeons will be allowed to create God items – so getting your hands on one will not be so straightforward!

Finally, this weekend will see the arrival of the black market auction event in which players will compete for the costume Poring Jar. Any player can make a bid for this item if they possess enough Memos from the fight against Virus – a previous event within Ragnarok Online

Don’t forget to check out our game page for this legendary title – and for all the information on this update and event, check out the official website

Open The Gates to Darkmeyer in In Old School Runescape

Though borne by nostalgia, the Old School Runescape team refuse to dwell in the past as they deliver a new update that unlocks the doors to Darkmeyer for the first time. Sins of the Father is the latest chapter of the Myreque quest line and, upon completion, opens up the previously inaccessible Darkmeyer city. 

The bloodstained path of the Myreque storyline has been a mainstay of the Old School Runescape lore for quite some time. Within it, the freedom-fighting Myreque struggle to liberate the dark swamplands of Morytania from the grasp of the feared vampyre Lord Drakan.

Mike Donatelli, the game’s Product Director said of the update:

“The Myreque is a dramatic storyline and one which is close to many players’ hearts. It is one of the oldest and longest quest series in-game, and players have enjoyed unravelling the history of the vampyres and the elusive Lord Drakan. As always, we have collaborated closely with the Old School RuneScape community throughout the development of Darkmeyer, with an emphatic vote of ~90% of 55,000+ polled players backing the quest.”

Upon throwing open the Darkmeyer gates players will encounter a new multitude of shops, amenities, enemies and two new skilling methods: 

  • The Hallowed Sepulchre will train players’ agility skill, with a minigame that involves traversing the boobytrapped crypt that houses the long-dead citizens of the ancient city of Hallowvale
  • The Essence Mine will train the Runecrafting skill by harnessing the mysterious power of mineral deposits within the demonic city. 

Be sure to experience this exciting new world by diving into the world of Old School Runescape, and check out our game page for more details on the game.

It’s the Final Countdown: EVE Online Invasion Comes To A Head

The year-long Invasion expansion for spacefaring MMORPG EVE Online has culminated in its third and final chapter. After having already covered EVE Online’s upcoming journey into the world of mobile gaming, we’re especially excited to see the progression of the flagship title with this latest storyline update.

The story, centred around the invading ‘Triglavian Collective’, will force players into a pivotal decision: to side with the Triglavians or defend the Empires of New Eden. As expected from an MMO moulded by its players, your decision will not only influence the plot’s direction but will also have a lasting impact on the entire game – ensuring that life in the cluster will never be the same again. 

Cosmic battles are inevitable as open conflict rages on between EDENCOM forces and Triglavians across high and low security space, forcing you to defend yourself against roaming fleets and fellow players depending on which force you side with. New structures and defences will come into play as the Empires bolster their resistance and the Triglavians double down on the attack. 

“At the core of EVE Online is a universe where actions have consequences, and this year the consequences of the Invasion storyline will have deep and lasting effects on players. Players will have to make their choice carefully – will they side with the new invaders, or will they resist?” said Bergur Finnbogason, EVE Online’s Creative Director. “Chapter 3 delivers a universe-changing event with a series of activities and player-driven decisions that will span the summer and change the landscape of EVE forever!”

With this season finale also comes additional improvements to the gameplay mechanics of player-built structures in the Forsaken Fortress update. This update introduces the new ‘Abandoned’ structure state alongside ‘Full Power’ and ‘Low Power’ states.

Make sure to follow EVE’s social media channels for all communications on updates, check out our own page on EVE Online and download the game for free if, for some reason, you haven’t already.

Who says romance is dead? Not the MU Origin 2 Update Developers

MU Origin 2, the mobile spinoff of MU Online, has received an extensive update rife with brand new content including an exciting new class. The hugely popular mobile MMORPG boasts impressive graphics for its platform, playing out in real-time alongside thousands of fellow players across the world. 

MU Origin 2’s “3.1 Update” includes the addition of the title’s fifth class – the Magic Gladiator. Looking to us like a rendition of a ‘battlemage’, the Magic Gladiator is a master of both sword and spell. This versatile warrior has been afforded dual-wielding capabilities which when married with arcane abilities establishes this warrior as a hefty damage-dealer. To bag the Magic Gladiator class, players must first reach level 120, unlocking the Magic Gladiator starting at the same level. 

Furthermore, one of the game’s most unique mechanics, married couples, has received its own update. The Couple Dungeon is a new feature which brings a whole new meaning to ‘power couple’ in which married characters can conquer dungeons and bosses together in order to obtain particular rewards. 

Furthermore, those who have tied the knot can enjoy the arrival of three Couple Skills – namely Beautiful Encounter, Heavy Longing and Warm Love. These new skills are available to married couples who have reached level 200, adding an extra motivation to find that special someone and pop the question. Now who said that romance is dead?

The third part of this update marks the beginning of Abyss Season 11. The opening of the Abyss World brings the Abyss Castle Siege which aims to seek out the best guild on the server. Only the top 3 guilds will be permitted to participate, with the victorious guild obtaining special buffs and the chance to host the Abyss Feast. 

With additional Archangel Set Effects, expanded floors of Tower of Allegiance, new locations, costumes, mounts, items, guardian pets, and more – this is a particularly robust update which is begging to be explored so dive into the action over at the MU Origin 2 website!

Play it While You Can! A Fractured Playtest Is On The Way.

We have been anticipating the release of sandbox MMORPG Fractured for a while now, and it would appear that we are a step closer with the announcement of the upcoming 2020 Fractured playtest. 

Since day one we’ve been keenly following the development of this title from its crowdfunding and Q&A sessions to recent stress tests, and for good reason – there is a lot to look forward to. Perhaps the most unprecedented feature is its fully-interactive environment. However, the cosmic setting, player-crafted items, race-dependent mechanics and the omission of grinding and leveling really sets this game apart. 

Split into 2 phases, the Fractured playtest will first be available for the game’s backers on Tuesday 26th May followed by universal access on Thursday 28th May, both at 2pm. Pile in the hours in while you can though as it will close to everybody on Monday 1st June. 

Expect the changes introduced during the Alpha 2 – Test 2 in March to be augmented with the following additions: 

  • Item stack splitting (holding CTRL when releasing a stack)
  • Crafting multiple items (instead of 1 at a time)
  • Faster movement speed on paved roads
  • Protection from monster attacks and damage when knocked down.
  • Proper Death, where your corpse will retain your inventory until recovered by yourself or a fellow guild member, or looted by a member of an opposing Militia.

Militias are a surprise new mechanic to spice up the PvP experience on Syndesia, the planet of the human race. Overall, it gives players a chance to join one of four predefined NPC Militias, within which they can decide to attack (or loot) the other three. The Devs have promised to expand on this concept the closer we get to a final release, but in the meantime get the full lowdown via the announcement page here.
