It’s almost August, so you know what that means. Today, I’ll be introducing you to 10 free to play MMORPGs I think you should try out in August 2019. People always ask me “Why didn’t you include Guild Wars 2, TERA, Blade & Soul or insert any big MMO here” and my reasoning is always simple: There are only a few large MMOs. Vindictus, Vindictus, Vindictus. I have a love hate relationship with this game. ArcheRage, not to be confused with ArcheAge. ArcheRage is a private server alternative to the official ArcheAge that has a much less toxic community, more frequent updates and is significantly less pay to win. Okay so maybe I’m not the most qualified person to be talking about Neverwinter because I’ve only ever dedicated a grand total of.. 12? Maybe 15 hours to. Echo of Soul is a fairly traditional old-school MMORPG. Each MMO I’ve listed thus far is unique in some form – combat, class-customization, world. … [Read more...] about 10 Free to Play MMORPGs You Should Try In August, 2019.

It looks like yet another version of Bless Online is calling it quits, as the Japanese server admins announced yesterday it’ll close down that region’s server in August. Here’s the translated version of the email blast from the Bless Reddit, as the Japanese site hasn’t been loading properly since yesterday: “Thank you for your continued patronage of BLESS. Thank you for your patronage, BLESS, but due to various circumstances, The service will be ended on August 8, 2019 (Thu). To all of you who supported BLESS so far, We deeply apologize for this kind of guidance.” It sounds as if existing players will be granted some sort of “useful items” on July 10th, with the game’s final day being August 8th. MMO players will recall that in September of last year, Neowiz announced it was shutting down the remaining Korean servers; at the time, the company told us that Korean players would be able to play the western version on Steam and that it … [Read more...] about Bless Online’s Japanese server is sunsetting in August

The Summer Games are back in Overwatch starting next week on August 9th and running through the 30th, according to a teaser tweet Blizzard shot out last night. It looks like Lucioball is returning too, given that the teaser is… literally just Lucio kicking a ball. Right on the nose with the teasers, eh Blizz? It’s a good bet that the event will bring a host of new skins for all the toons as it did the previous two years; Reddit is excited over the new Busan arena map rumored to be coming with the event too. Meanwhile, hot on the heels of the Overwatch League’s big showdown, Blizzard announced this week that it’s signed on two new teams: an Atlanta, Georgia, team operated by Cox Enterprises and a Guangzhou, China, team backed by Nenking Group (which also owns a major Chinese basketball team).

The Coming Storm is arriving. No, the storm itself is not arriving. You see, Dauntless has announced its first big content pack, which is itself called The Coming Storm. That’s going to be here in August. When will the actual storm no longer be “coming” but be “here?” Unclear. Probably after that. Ambiguous naming about storms and the arrival thereof, we don’t know much about the content just yet; the tweet announcing The Coming Storm promises a new weapon, new challenges, and the arrival of Ostia. The fan speculation engine, of course, is already working overtime at deciphering what is likely to arrive. It also promises that you’ll be able to play it for free in August. In all likelihood we’ll learn more about the content later on this week, but be now just be sure that The Coming Storm is itself coming.
