Play EVE Online for freeJust a few days ago, we awoke to news so unexpected that it made me check I hadn’t time-traveled to April 1st: EVE Online developer CCP Games is being bought by Black Desert Online studio Pearl Abyss for a total of $425 million USD. The news immediately kicked the EVE Online community into a frenzy, with most people’s gut reactions being overwhelmingly negative. Black Desert is known for its aggressive monetisation strategies and many EVE Online players were understandably worried that Pearl Abyss would try to force the same strategy onto EVE.

DayZ developer Bohemia Interactive has just announced their next game at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. Considering the success of DayZ, it’s no surprise that the Czech studio will be rolling out yet another multiplayer survival shooter called Vigor. “1991. The nuclear war is over. Central Europe is devastated, Norway has become the last stand. You start as a nameless outlander, but who will you become? No time for uncertainty. Turn a shelter into your home. Fight, run or hide. Take risks, claim rewards. Survive this cut-throat experience.” Sounds interesting. Looks great too if the official gameplay trailer below is any indication. Unfortunately, Vigor will be an Xbox One exclusive title. If you’re interested, then you might want to check out the trailer before you go running out to buy yourself an Xbox One. You can also head over to the Vigor official site to learn more about the upcoming game.

So all the way back in May of 2017, I made a video titled “The Best Free To Play Anime MMORPGs To Play RIGHT NOW In 2017!”. It has since gone on to gain almost 800,000 views, thousands of comments, and thousands of likes. Over the course of the year my likes and dislikes in terms of MMORPGs have changed quite drastically.
