The Roadmap Through 2015

Star Wars: The Old Republic Producer Bruce Maclean has posted a brand new blog article that lays out the roadmap for 2015. The letter reminds players of the four pillars that SWTOR launched with: combat, exploration, progression and story. As previously announced, 2015 will be focused primarily on bringing more story to players, a process that began with December 2014's Shadow of Revan expansion.

The Daily Quest - How often do you group up?

MMOs are inherently about being online in a world or at least a zone with other people playing simultaneously. But just because they're around, doesn't mean you need to always be playing with someone else. At least, that's what the MMOs of the modern era have become. So today's quest, should you choose to accept, is to answer "How often do you group up?"

UPDATE: Cancellation Official due to SWTOR

GameInformer.com is reporting that "multiple sources" are telling them that Bioware's much-hyped Shadow Realms is dead in the water. There are no links to original sources for the rumors nor any word as to whether or not those providing the tips have inside information. What we do know is that little to no information about the darling of last year's Gamescom has come out since that time.

Marvel Heroes’ Team-Up Overhaul Sounds Promising

I have to say I was a bit surprised at how far Gazillion is planning to take the overhaul of Team-Ups. Sure, Team-Ups have flaws that needed to be addressed, but from the looks of it, Gazillion is planning to expand on Team-Ups such that they're almost full-blown characters on their own.

Player Feedback Integral to Latest Update

Aion developers have listened to their community and today's update is the first step in implementing feature adjustments and game improvements based on that feedback. First off the bat are the new "abbeys" where players who have not logged in for 30+ days can catch up on gear upgrades through a series of daily and one-shot events. In addition, the manastone system has undergone a major upgrade.

Scrolls: The Overshadowed Second Game

When your first game as a developer was an incredible hit like Mojang's Minecraft, this means unavoidably a hard life for whatever comes next. While it's almost impossible to live up to expectations, at least you have the benefit of the spotlight. However, you are really out of luck when at the same time one of the industry leaders decides to release a game in the same genre - which happened with Blizzard and Hearthstone. Scrolls was unlucky enough to get overshadowed not only once, but twice.

PAX South 2015: First Look at CABAL 2

When someone invites you up to their hotel room, unless you've been sharing drinks at the bar and developed a certain subtle understanding, it's typically a good idea to refuse. When the word "cabal" is uttered in the same proposition, a thrown glass for distraction and immediate sprint for the nearest exit would be the course of wisdom.

Cantina Tour at PAX South: A New Hope

This past weekend, several members of BioWare Austin descended upon San Antonio for PAX South in the latest Star Wars: The Old Republic Cantina Tour stop. In it, guests were treated to the usual Q&A interspersed with prizes for correctly answering trivia questions. Unusually, the event was actually held on-site at PAX and required a badge although it wasn't a part of official programming.

Everything’s for Sale on the Kings Road

The iOS port of Kings Road brings this action RPG game to the mobile platform. It is marginally an MMO as there is a town square, guild functions and group play. A linear game, skills and features (blacksmith, alchemist, banker) open up as you play as well as getting spammed with items to buy every time you set foot in town - which is at log-in and at quest completion.

Darkest Dungeon: A Gothic Roguelike Not for the Faint of Heart

A Gothic Roguelike Not for the Faint of Heart

At its most basic level, Darkest Dungeon is a Gothic themed side-scrolling turn-based RPG that emphasizes the psychological stresses of dungeon crawling. Ever wonder what's going on in the head of your Demon Hunter as she explores the nightmarish depths of Hell in Diablo 3? Surely, our heroes are tough - but at some point all of this horror must take a toll, right?

New Class, Combat & World Rulesets Explored

In the latest post on the Crowfall site, the team introduces players to the next character class, the Stoneborn Forgemaster. High in strength but low in intellect, Forgemasters are melee specialists. In addition to the archetype class, the team also shows off the way that worlds will be individualized and feature their own rulesets. Players will be able to travel between the worlds to take part in activities as they wish rather than be 'stuck' on one server type.

Guild Wars 2: Unpacking the Heart of Thorns Announcement

Unpacking the Heart of Thorns Announcement

We've been waiting a good long while for any peep about a full-fledged expansion for Guild Wars 2. ArenaNet's flagship has seen a host of Living World updates, gameplay and feature additions, and balance tweaks, but the promise of a canonical expansion has been elusive. Just last month, I wrote about some alternatives to GW2's Living World, with an expansion being the obvious choice to drive the post-launch game forward and create a new revenue stream.
