MMORPG News Roundup

Posted by | November 18, 2008

There’s more going on in the world than the release for Wrath of the Lich King. In fact, quite a few little bits of information you might like to know are swirling on the winds like snow over a battlefield. Here’s a quick summary of what’s going down out there.

World of Warcraft is revving up the free realm transfer engine again, trying to drive the sudden influx of new and returning players to more balanced servers. They have a thread up on the forums detailing the server openings as they happen. Check it out here.

Warhammer Online is introducing two new tank classes, the Knights of the Blazing Sun and the Dark Elf Black Guard. To celebrate, they’re hosting a special event from November 18th to December 1st called Heavy Metal. Lots of quests, a new Scenario, and tons of gutting fools who get in your way. Players who clear out all the quests will get access to the new classes a week before the general public. Go forth and kill! Details are on the Warhammer Online website.

EVE Online, that ever-friendly game of ganking in space, has recently hurled video from its latest fanfest up against the internet wall. You can find developer panels, new footage on the latest ways the EVE team is dodging the fundamental flaws of their game, the keynote speech, and a incredible tap routine where they dance around the Goonswarm elephant in the room. Take a look at the vids here.

Age of Conan still sucks.

City of Heroes is putting the finishing touches on Issue 13, Power and Responsibility. This release will see new powers in the form of Shields and Pain Domination, which sounds like a winning combination. Also, your powerful superbeings will be able to shake the world of gainful employment with day jobs. The new leveling pact feature will help you keep apace with your friends or spouse. They’ll even let Villains respec their Patron powers, same as Heroes! How thoughtful. Take a look at the complete list of new goodies in the Issue 13 Overview.
