I recently was afforded the opportunity to ask a few questions of the folks at Cryptic Studios who are behind the Neverwinter: Strongholds expansion set. But I didn’t get just anyone, I got my answers from Randy “Arkayne” Mosiondz, Senior Content Designer and Loremaster on Neverwinter! Not too shabby, if you ask me. In case you are unaware, Neverwinter: Strongholds is the seventh expansion for the Dungeons & Dragons: Forgotten Realms MMORPG published by Perfect World Entertainment. It was released on August 11, 2015 and is all about group participation. Rather than me explaining it, let’s get right down to brass tacks and take a look at the interview, shall we? There’s also a gallery of screenshots below the interview, so peruse those when you’re done!
The legion of Firefly fans looking for new material in the universe have reason to rejoice today as Fox Digtial Entertainment and QMx Interactive announced plans for Firefly Online, the first officially licensed video game for the cult TV show and movie. The game is set to launch in Summer 2014 and will be available on iOS devises and the Android marketplace.
The game lets players take on the role of a ship captain, just like Captain Mal Reynolds from the show, where they will find a ship, hire a crew, and take on missions so they can keep flying. Players will also be able to customize their ship while they explore the “˜Verse, and will also be able to connect with other players using unique social features. There’s no price information on the game yet, so we’ll just have to wait and see if there will be a one-time price for it or if they will go with a monthly price or go with the freemium model of micro-transactions for in game items.
You can check out the official trailer for the game here below.
This week a bidding war starts (and ends) over Waze, Yahoo wants Hulu, Tim Cook spills the beans about…well, nothing, Blizzard drops its new MMO from the schedule, backlash against Microsoft‘s XBox One, a 3D food printer, and the possible look of the next Playstation.
The best-selling MMORPG ever is at it again. With Deathwing defeated and all of Azeroth seemingly safe for a few months, the eyes of residents of the World of Warcraft shift towards their next big adventure — Mists of Pandaria. The Panda beta, as players are lovingly referring to it, went live this month. And since it is a public beta with no NDA (Non-disclosure Agreement) from Blizzard, a ton of information has already hit the Web. I am here to sift through some of the latest info.
Marvel is teasing details of its new MMORPG based on the Marvel Universe by setting up a protected twitter account under the guise of M.M.M. Society (@MMMSociety). The account’s description reads, “The Marvel Massively Multiplayer Society is your gateway to the Marvel Universe, Marvel’s upcoming epic MMO” and features a link to a password-protected Tumblr page.
Comic fans have been awaiting news of a Marvel MMO ever since the company terminated its plans to create a game with City of Heroes developers Cryptic Studios, (which later morphed into Champions Online).
The MMM Society is the first bit of news we’ve heard regarding the company’s MMO since 2009, when Geeks of Doom was alerted to a job posting seeking developers for the project. But while a covert promotional campaign about a Marvel MMO may signal that we’ll start to see some concrete information about what to expect from the game, it will likely be years before it launches.
