According to Korean gaming news site GameFocus, NCSoft Korea is going to launch a couple new beta tests this year starting with another beta for the Korean version of Master X Master in March followed by Lineage Eternal beta in April. Better not get your hopes up though, they always say the same CBT for LE yearly.
A quick write on the English version of Black Desert Online! I thought it was pretty cool that they released an offline standalone character creator program. Players will be able to save their character looks and import it later for the upcoming betas and future release. I'll probably also be checking out the English version of Black Desert Online and perhaps returning to playing the KR version once the Tamer awakening is out.
New Dungeon Striker is going to be shutting down again on February 11th. The Action MORPG hasn't had any luck during the past years even with the new game changes and publisher hopping spree. Users that played the game can get some refund on the cahh shop items. Players who reached level 50 can also apply for a FREE leveled up Dragon Nest character. This may look like the end of Dungeon Striker or will it come back again, probably for the mobile version.
I played a bit of Black Desert today in preparation for the upcoming Tamer awakening next month. I was working on random story quests in Valencia and had to visit the Monk training ground with a lot of people trying to master the Bo Staff, which will be the new awakening weapon for Tamer. I totally forgot about this place. I wonder if they're going to connect the Tamer story with it?
I used to login MapleStory2 to make clothes now I do random music stuff. lol
Bless Online just launched a brand new website along, teaser page, full OST, and a new game information page. Earlier last month I stated that they're going to have a meeting about the future of Bless Online on January 15th and it looks like they're also planning on announcing the Open Beta schedule among other things.
Bluehole and Nexon Korea just released a new teaser trailer for their upcoming new playable Shinobi class for the Elin. Judging from the trailer and teaser page alone, it looks like it's going to be another exclusive class to the Elin or Dark Elin race, most likely Elin since bunny and cat ears. The large shuriken looks cool, maybe I should try it out.
After a thorough investigation, IMCGames unleashed the power of the Ban Hammer upon users that exploited bugs, botted, illegal programs, game modification, and more. Perma bans has been sent out on over 1,000 accounts! I'm not sure if the users just get banned on TOS or their whole Nexon account is banned and done for, if it is, then they just screwed over their other Nexon games in their library.
According to Inven News, Neowiz Bless Studio will host a local public press announcement featuring new details on the current state of the game, opening schedule, business model, and more. I spent a lot of time playing the final test, I strongly suggest you check out my adventure articles!
