  • Laura Genender looks at the veteran rewards due to hit CoH/V tomorrow

    MMORPG.com has posted a preview of the veteran rewards for City of Heroes and City of Villians due to go live tomorrow.

    Introduced with the "Issue 8: To Protect and Serve" expansion to City of Heroes and City of Villains, Cryptic Studios will be implementing a Veteran Award system that rewards players based on how long they've had an activated account for the duo of games. These rewards range from costume pieces to special powers to extra base items, including a lot of novelty items that City of Heroes and Villains fans have been anticipating since the opening of the game.

    That's right, we're talking wings.

  • An In Depth Look At Age of Conan

    The Game Musketeers has posted an interview with Erling Ellingsen about Age of Conan...

    With an original system of single-player game merging into a MMO environment. How will the single-player experience enhance the MMO game?

    The way we see it, MMOs can be very intimidating at first. They lack many of the gameplay mechanics that draw the player in from the start of most games, such as story that really takes you by the hand and gets you going. Stories that can shake your world and it feel like you are really something other than just another peasant out to kill rabbits. We wanted to incorporate that into the MMO genre, and thus we created what we refer to as Age of Conan's single-player part. Actually, though, it is not truly single-player all the time.

  • Another Look At Age of Conan

    GamersInfo.net has posted another look at the upcoming Age of Conan.

    I know, I know – it’s been two months since I saw this game at DragonCon. But Age of Conan is probably the MMORPG that I’m looking forward to the most, along with one other one (Warhammer), so I’ve wanted to make sure it’ll be a good preview.

    FunCom was on-hand at DragonCon to give a preview of Age of Conan to the people there. In addition, I had a chance to speak to Ole Herbjornsen, the lead developer for the game, for a few minutes after the presentation.

  • EverQuest II's Senior Producer Scott Hartsman talks about Echoes of Faydwer

    MMORPG.com posted this interview Friday with Scott Hartsman in their continuing series of interviews.

    MMORPG.com: An aspect of the expansion that has players excited are the Deity granted spells and skills. Can you tell us more about them? Is this just a one time quest or more of a developing journey?

    Scott Hartsman: Choosing a deity that matches your character's beliefs is a journey that you begin to embark upon through different series of quests for each deity.

    Once you've chosen a deity to worship and earn their favor by taking on certain quests and making offerings you're able to tap into certain aspects of their power, their Blessings and Miracles. You can have one of each at any given time. You gain them by praying at your deity's altar and choosing to spend some of your earned Favor.

  • Bursting at the seams with new content, this expansion will keep real life at bay

    GamesRadar.com has posted their hands on preview of the upcoming expansion for EverQuest II, Echoes of Faydwer.

    We recently got some hands on time with the beta version of Echoes of Faydwer and it looks like EverQuest II fans will have a good reason to put real life on hold and order some pizza as it’s jam packed with more content than any other expansion released for the granddaddy of MMORPGs. Unlike previous expansions which focused on new content for particular level ranges, Echoes of Faydwer will include new questing grounds for all levels with plenty of end-game bosses for raiders to take down.

  • Hands On Impressions of Burning Crusade

    Pro-G has posted their hands on impressions of the Burning Crusades. Keep reading to see what they think of the upcoming expansion to World of Warcraft.

    The Burning Crusade presents an interesting conundrum for World of Warcraft players: drop your existing high level character for the allure of starting one of two new races, or keep on with your uber-equipped killing machine and brave the shattered realm of Outland.

    So far, most beta players have opted for the high level rewards of Outland over starting a new character. But this isn't to the detriment of TBC's two new races, the manga-esque Blood Elves and the big blue aliens the Draenei - both have aspects that have drawn concern from the typically vocal WoW fan base, but overall are shaping up nicely.

  • FiringSquad Previews The Burning Crusade

    FiringSquad.com has posted a preview of the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, The Burning Crusade.

    The Blood Elves are the new Horde race, Blizzard’s answer to the calls for attractive models and Paladins for the Horde. Continuing the story from WarCraft III, the Blood Elves have split from the Alliance by making common cause with Illidan. Their lands and Silvermoon, their city, lay in ruins. The passage of the Scourge has quite literally left a mark on what were once the beautiful lands of the elves.
