There’s been a lotta news in the past couple weeks and although Wiggy attempted to cover some in last week’s Byte of MMORPG news video, today, I plan on covering everything she missed, and then some! Smilegate’s latest media conference in Seoul revealed a tiny bit of information I’m sure everyone will be interested in.. and that is that Lost Ark is finally launching into open beta, albeit in South Korea only – but that’s a start. In a move I didn’t see coming, NCSoft announced that next month, Lineage II Classic will be hitting players with a huge nostalgia trip as it launches in all its original grindy glory. I remember playing this back in 2009.. has it really been 10 years? Wow, how time flies.

What’s up everyone! Today is Sunday, July 22nd and with that, we welcome the conclusion of another week, and the release of yet another “Weekly Byte of MMORPG News” article.

You might be wondering why this video is coming out on a Wednesday, but the last week has been a little barren in terms of news. Ack, I’m going off topic. Welcome back everyone to your Weekly Byte of MMORPG news – Happy 4th of July! I hope you’re all there enjoying yourselves celebrating like the world’s ending tomorrow. I know I will be.

Project DH is a Korean steampunk themed MMO set in a world where “giant beasts are ravaging Humanity’s dominions.” The team behind the upcoming MMORPG Crowfall posted their mid-year checkpoint update last week, highlighting the game’s progress over the course of 2018. Yes, the game is still alive.. somehow. And the game is still receiving updates! It seems as though we had but a mere week free from … [Read more...] about Your Weekly Byte Of MMORPG News: Bless Online Going Free To Play? Upcoming MMO Project DH, MapleStory 2 2nd CBT
Welcome back to another Weekly Byte of MMORPG News! Let’s kick this off with what is probably the largest MMORPG announcement since TERA announced they were porting their game to consoles.. and that is that Microsoft revealed that Black Desert Online will begin beta testing on Xbox One come Fall, 2018.Players are able to sign up for the beta test on the official Black Desert Xbox site – so if you want the chance to play it first, make sure you visit the website! Don’t miss out on the chance to play Black Desert on consoles! Next up is the crowdfunded MMORPG Life Is Feudal: MMO. The game launched earlier this year to quite a bit of criticism, and has since been running on fumes. Nexon have recently announced a secondary round of closed beta testing for MapleStory 2.

To start things off, if you haven’t already, then head on over to Nexon’s website and fill out everything for the MapleStory 2 Closed Beta. With the Alpha testing for Battle of Azeroth now over, Blizzard has begun sending out Closed Beta invites to test the game out before their launch later in the year. Things have been quiet on Riders of Icarus’ front over the last year. I’m sure fans of the game have noticed this if they haven’t already left due to a lack of updates. What would a news week be if we didn’t have something related to TERA to include, right?
