  • Gorgeous visuals and a wacky theme? Sounds like an eastern MMO to me.

    If you're wondering how a combination of Diablo-esque gameplay, party systems in an MMO, and a distinctly victorian style stacks up, MPOGD has just the preview you need to read.

  • Preview and New Screenshots

    Games Radar has posted a look at the upcoming Sword of the New World today. Thier preview includes several new screenshots.

    Aesthetically, the game successfully melds its 17th century setting with traditional high-fantasy flair. Dapper casters - that look more suited for a night at the ball than a dungeon - fling area-of-effect fire blasts, and gun-slinging dames in saucy bodices riddle demons with lead.

  • Module 4 Preview of Gianthold Tor

    WarCry posted this preview of the upcoming Module 4 for Dungeons and Dragons.

    After the quick tour of the new massive wilderness area we entered the grand entrance to Gianthold Tor. The DM instructed us to activate the great portals in the large room ahead of us in our attempt to locate the dragons. Once we activated the portals, an ambush of massive magnitude was upon us. Did I mention massive? Yes, enormous giants were swinging their clubs and great axes at us from all angles.

    More is just click away.

    RPG Land updated their site with a look at the upcoming Sword of the New World. Keep reading to see what they thought...

    Quests in Granado Espada are quite typical of the genre. Granado Espada takes from some current MMORPGs and also contains missions. The player will get his/her own instance of a location in a mission very similar to that of Guild Wars. This offers some variety to normal find/retrieve questing.

  • This Game is Baroque...with Style.

    With nary a Bach reference, 1up.com has posted a scintilating look at the Baroque-stylized MMO, Sword of the New World: Grenada Espada (previously known as simply Grenada Espada). While that may sound strange at first, with graphics akin to Lineage II and a uniquely compelling multi-character system, it's worth your time to check out the preview. Here's a snippet:

    But art direction aside, one of the unique features of Sword of the New World is the Multi-Character Control system. Players will be able to create an entire family of characters to play with. Each family can have up to four members, and the members will carry the family surname. Best of all, you can take up to three family members out in a party at the same time. For people who can't decide on any one class to focus on, now you can level up three at once.

    Time to get your Baroque on. Read it!

  • Gamespy's Delsyn goes hands-on with DDO's Module 3, where he learns to hate sand, jackal-men and women with six arms.

    Gampspy has posted a preview of the upcoming Module 3 for Dungeons and Dragons Online. Keep reading to see what they have to say...

    Turbine is walking a pretty fine line these days. Its high profile MMO, Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach, has gotten great praise for its fidelity to the paper-and-pencil experience but equally harsh criticism for the absence of many of the most common features of MMOs, such as broad, open areas and PvP combat. It's to Turbine's credit that the DDO development team is attempting to address these criticisms, adding in more "MMO-style features" without compromising the vision of an authentic online D&D game. I recently had the opportunity to visit Turbine's Cambridge, Massachusetts, studio to go hands-on with some of the upcoming content from Module 3: The Demon Sands and see how it's coming along.
