Due to recent game and account hacking Capcom is forced to strengthen their security by implementing a stricter IP block for their newly released game Dragon's Dogma Online. Players must also reset their passwords before they can play any of the COG Japan titles. There are a lot of English players actually playing the game and most of them speak freely on chat using the shout feature. No account bans just yet.
Capcom just released the Dragon's Dogma Online benchmark software for PC! This game is really fun to try out and I do encourage everyone to participate in the upcoming Closed Beta starting on August 7th followed by the official game release in August 31st Japan. You can find out more details about the game in my Dragon's Dogma Online Review.
XLGAMES and 2KGAMES just released a new trailer featuring the upcoming new Industrial Age vehicles for Civilization Online. I believe there is only one more era left to be introduced which is the modern era and perhaps a futuristic era if they are planning on adding it. The game is scheduled to have a final test sometime next month. Looking forward to creating some new content for you guys!
Black Desert Online is finally phasing out of Open Beta later this next month! As previously planned during the first launch of the game, PearlAbyss and DAUM will be unifying all the servers into ONE server and perhaps a multiple channel system. Sounds like Guild Battles are going to become much more epic with a lot of competition!
ActozSoft and EyeDentity Games just released two new trailers revealing their upcoming games including new titles such as Dragon Nest II Legend, Dragon Nest Origin, and more. Sadly to say, most if not all the upcoming games is for your tablet or mobile device. I'm pretty sure that won't stop fans from getting an early preview on how these games look like. They're going all out with the mobile games this year and the next.
Tree of Savior Online and Peria Chronicles both disappeared in Nexon Korea's 2015 quarterly report. A lot of PC and TOS followers are a bit worried about it and are wondering if it's going to affect the 2015 release dates. Do I have the magical answer? Nope, but I have some opinions!
Mecha fans are in for a big disappointment today as NCSoft Korea cancels the development of Unreal Engine 4 Project Hon. NCSoft wants to primarily focus their assets on Lineage Eternal and MXM Master X Master Online. The Project Hon team embezzlement scandal issue earlier this year also raised some flags to the cancellation of the game. A few Project Hon team members decided to pocket over ten-thousands worth of dollars that should have been used for the title's development money like a boss.
Tree of Savior Online is one of the most anticipated upcoming game with a lot of international followers globally and with that said, it took less than 10 hours for the game to become Greenlit on Steam. After shortly posting it on my Steparu Page, it has almost reached 1,000 shares within the 10 hour window. Eventually reaching out and getting shared on major gaming community sites. However, some ToS fans are a bit unsure if it's real or a major troll find out below.
IMCGames just posted the English version of Tree of Savior Online on the steam Greenlight page. Having thoroughly enjoyed both of the Korean CBT tests, I instantly logged in my steam account and voted it up. How about you!? Come on and vote it up! The NA/EU publishers still remain a mystery, but perhaps seeing the English version on the Steam Greenlight page would speed up the localization process. I personally wouldn't mind if the game was on Steam as I already have a wide collection of games on there, but I would love a standalone client.
