The previously buy to play battle royale game Darwin Project went free to play this week. The reasoning behind the business model change was that it was taking too long for players to find matches in certain regions, so to boost its playerbase the game decided to embrace the free to play model. Given that the #1 battle royale game (Fortnite) is free to play, staying buy to play didn't make much sense. Players who previously purchased Darwin Project in the past will be given a Founder's Pack which includes a bunch of in game goodies. Darwin Project is a bit different than most battle royale games. Instead of 100 player matches on large maps, the game only has 10 players per map and promises more meaningful gameplay.

While the overall revenue went up for Q4 2017, the operating and net profits went down, most probably due to increased operating costs and several investments in other companies.

So I have some gaudy news that might help loosen up the sphincters of anyone disappointed with the current look of MMORPGs on the horizon. Project TL, which I’ve actually just learned stands for “The Lineage”, was announced late 2017. No real information was known about the game at the time other than that it was an MMORPG set within the Lineage franchise. Now, NCSoft have taken the time to make some changes to the game since its original iteration – to better suit the current market. Project TL will change that however, instead, offering the basic, traditional single-character system that Lineage Eternal was lacking. It will also be created using the Unreal Engine 4 – so you can imagine how it’s going to look. NCSoft revealed that Project TL is actually running very well in terms of development and further went on to reveal their intent to conduct closed beta testing for Project TL during the second half of 2018. NCSoft also went on to point out … [Read more...] about Lineage Eternal / Project TL Closed Beta 2018 Confirmed!
