Research company SuperData recently released a list of the top 10 F2P games based on their estimated worldwide revenue last year.

Arrival Trailer Highlights Dark Anchors of Molag Bal

Zenimax has released a brand new cinematic trailer, perhaps the opening cinematic for the game. Called "Arrival", the amazingly realistic video shows an epic, but very "normal" battle that is interrupted by something otherworldly known as a Dark Anchor opening a rift into Molag Bal's realm. A continuation of last year's Alliances trailer, this one's pretty incredible. It's a fantastic video that you cannot miss.

In just a few months, players will be able to embark on a brand new, AAA subscription MMORPG with a fully-voiced central storyline adapted from a familiar IP.

Focused on Customization

It's been a while since I've seen an AAA MMO put as much emphasis on player customization as Carbine Studios is with WildStar. Released just this morning, the latest DevSpeak video focuses squarely on the myriad ways Carbine will emphasize customization in their game. As a "fussypants" myself, I have to say I was genuinely excited by what I saw. We recently had an opportunity to discuss most of what was shown in the video in greater detail, so let's get right to it.
