  • CVG joins Blizzard's senior VP Frank Pearce for an in-depth look at the new races and issues from the outstanding expansion!

    CVG has posted this preview of World of Warcrafts's upcoming expansion, The Burning Crusade. Find out what they learned while Frank Pearce gives them a test run of the game.

    Aesthetically, whatkind of World Of Warcraft character do you go for? Do you like the big, no-nonsense, tough-guy orcs and taurens - the kind that could splinter bones with their little fingers and don't get invited to dinner parties? Maybe you don't like straying too far from the norm and prefer humans. Sensible, dependable, no unnecessary horns, lovely little bit of Chaucerian countryside and scones for tea. Perhaps you prefer something a bit nicer to look at, a lithe female night-elf with a chain-mail bikini and a generous nature when it comes to giving out lap-dances?

  • TrustedReviews Offers a Preview

    World of Warcraft's upcoming expansion, The Burning Crusade is the subject of the latest update on TrustedReviews site. They offer a preview today that gives their view of the expansion.

    Unless you’ve been living in a gaming vacuum for the past couple of years, you will have heard of World of Warcraft. To call WoW a phenomenon is an understatement of epic proportions, and to be honest I don’t think that anyone, Blizzard included, realised just how massive this game was going to be. There are always stories in the media about obsessive gamers that lose whole weekends, or even weeks to their favourite game, but WoW took this sickness to another level!

  • Huge expansion (and tiny race) in store for EverQuest II

    Games Radar has taken a look at the upcoming expansion to EQ2, Echoes of Faydwer. Keep reading to see what they think of it...

    Tired of endlessly waiting around for the World of Warcraft to get bigger? Massively multiplayer online gamers should take note that EverQuest II is planning an expansion that will make it larger than ever, with the Echoes of Faydwer add-on that will be available this November. Introducing a rarely-seen new race (the tiny, winged Fae), EQII is clearly attempting to pull the heartstrings of the ex-EQ (now Warcraft) faithful.

  • Austin Game Conference: Preview of The Ryzom Ring

    Gamersinfo.com has posted a preview of the upcoming expansion to the Saga of Ryzom, Ryzom Ring. Keep reading to see what they thought.

    Just over 2 years ago French MMO developer Nevrax announced they would be doing something revolutionary with their decision to allow players to create their own content for their popular MMO Saga of Ryzom. We had the opportunity to sit down at this year's Austin Game Conference with Nevrax’s Director Milko Berset, and once again see the progress that they had made on The Ring. Sitting down with Milko in Nevrax’s booth in the Technology Pavilion I can see that the tools have progressed a lot from when we last got a peak at them.

  • Lineage II: Oath of Blood gets ready to expand the players’ experience

    GameZone has posted a preview of the upcoming expansion to Lineage II, Oath of Blood. Do they think this will be a hit or a miss? Keep reading...

    Since the launch of Lineage II in April of 2004, the game has seen a lot of changes, the evolution of the community and strong changes along the way.

    Much of the criticism has been addressed. Players who have violated the EULA (end-user licensing agreement) have found that NCsoft has cracked down hard. In fact, as of the middle of September, approximately 50,000 accounts will have been banned for infractions. There are been four ‘chronicles’ or major updates to the game.

  • EverQuest II: Echoes of Faydwer Updated Impressions

    Gamespot has posted an updated preview of the upcoming expansion to EQII. Keep reading to see what they think...

    One of the advantages of massively multiplayer online role-playing games that let you play in persistent virtual worlds with thousands of other players is that they can evolve and grow over time. The world of EverQuest II will experience another growth spurt with the release of the upcoming third expansion, EverQuest II: Echoes of Faydwer. With Echoes of Faydwer, the designers at Sony Online Entertainment continue to tie together the worlds of EverQuest II and the original EverQuest. Faydwer was an area in the original game, and the traditional home of the elves, dwarves, and gnomes is back and better than before.

  • Spiffy or Iffy?

    GameSpy took a look at the upcoming expansion to Everquest II, Echoes of Faydwer. Keep reading to find out if they liked what is to come...

    Two retail expansions to EverQuest II have been released to date, but depending on who you ask, the upcoming Echoes of Faydwer may be the first that's truly deserving of the name. Due out this November, Echoes looks to expand the game in many meaningful ways, adding not only a landmass of significant size, but a new playable race, and some apparently far-reaching game-wide changes. We recently caught up with SOE to get an idea of what we can expect.
