The Elder Scrolls Online players are suffering an embarrassment of riches at the moment. The 25th anniversary of the Elder Scrolls franchise coincides almost directly with the 5th anniversary of the MMO, and to celebrate, ZeniMax is running an anniversary extravaganza that lasts five whole weeks. But is more always better, or does the pull to keep players logging in lead to unintended adverse effects? Back in January of 2017, ZeniMax devs announced that they would be dropping four major updates in the year to come: a quality-of-life update (Homestead), a chapter release, a dungeon DLC, and a smaller content release. Considering the release cadence of other MMOs, I thought this sounded like a wishful goal. But to its credit, ZeniMax has been able to deliver a constant stream of quality content over the last two and a half years. The result has been a steady uptick in server population and an ever-growing number of things to do. Following the “more is better” logic, ESO … [Read more...] about Tamriel Infinium: Are Elder Scrolls Online’s events too much of a good thing?

Here is our 2018 Top 5 Best MMORPGs To Watch: #1 Marvel Heroes – Sink or Swim Superhero MMO-ARPG Marvel Heroes is in quite some trouble. Amid reports of Gazillion employees leaving, a controversial CEO at the helm and no new content in 2017, the next year could be crucial for the game’s survival. What’s gone so wrong? The studio has been tremendously silent on all fronts recently, which is not a good sign for any game. They’ve missed their usual Halloween event, and players are starting to wonder if this is the beginning of the end. Hence, 2018 will be a huge year for Marvel Heroes, if they want to bounce back. Better communication between studio, community and players need to happen. On top of that and more importantly, the content needs to roll out fast and early next year, or it’s time shut shop and let Disney figure out something new. #2 World of Warcraft – New Expansion/Classic Server 2018 will also be a huge year for Blizzard’s … [Read more...] about 2018 Top 5 Best MMORPGs To Watch
Floating up out of the drydock of closed beta, Worlds Adrift launched into the bright blue skies of early access today. The airship sandbox drummed up hype for the release with a publicity stunt that involved hauling a batch of players high up into the air over London to try out the game. (The first livestream in the sky? Why not!) “Worlds Adrift is now releasing to Steam Early Access,” Bossa Studios trumpeted. “This means we have opened up additional servers for both US and EU regions, and will release more servers depending on player population. The UI for the character creation screen has been adjusted to make it easier to pick a server to play on.” With the early access start comes a full wipe and a new build that includes a different layout, additional islands, new clothing items, double the amount of ancient written stories, all-new music, and plenty of bug fixes. The early access client is on sale at 10% off through May 23rd, meaning that you can pick it … [Read more...] about Worlds Adrift launches on Steam early access while overseen by actual airship
