  • Sprawl's Scrawl - First Impressions of Closed Beta

    WoW Vault has posted a preview of WoW's upcoming expansion, The Burning Crusade. This preview is full of impressions from closed beta, so don't miss out!

    One of the first things you notice upon logging into Burning Crusade beta is a number of quick popup boxes that indict that the system is scanning for viruses and the like. It's good to see that Blizzard is taking active steps at keeping a blacklist of known exploits. Once again the new player is presented with a view of the Dark Portal, this time from the Outland side. At this point, if you haven't upgraded your account with a key, do not expect to login.

  • New FAQ and Heroes Profiles

    The official site for Guild Wars has been updated with a new Nightfall FAQ and a listing of Heroes.

    Origin: Kournan
    Age: 25
    Profession: Warrior

    An idealistic and brutally effective soldier, Koss has great hopes for the latest generation of Sunspears. He's proud of what they've done, sometimes to the point of arrogance. With brute strength and overwhelming confidence, he cheerfully muscles his way through one confrontation after another, often using the same approach when dealing with people.

  • Stieg Hedlund Talks to Actiontrip

    Actiontrip had a chance to sit down and Stieg Hedlund and chat about the upcoming Gods and Heroes.

    In what is now probably one of the most challenging and overbearing game genres in terms of investment and the actual development, the MMOG genre, there are only a few upcoming titles that truly caught my attention in the last year or so. One of them is Mythic's Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, and the other, Perpetual Entertainment's Gods & Heroes, a game that simply stands out with its exceptional visual style and intriguing gameplay mechanics.

    As a huge fan of the genre, I was very excited to learn some new details about the game directly from its creators. Read on.

  • Boomtown Brings Us an Hands-On Preview of Nightfall

    Boomtown has posted their latest look at the upcoming Guild Wars expansion. They had a chance to play Nightfall. Keep reading to find out what they thought...

    So here we are again, logging on for God knows which time, this time preparing to get into the next chapter of the saga, Nightfall. The title screen now has a sort of African-Arabian from-the-desert-to-the-seas thing going, and as usual, Jeremy Soule's music fits the mood. It feels like I'm about to date an old flame again, and she's changed ever so subtly, but somehow significantly. The thing is, though, that she's still the same, my Guild Wars. She may now have even more to do, this time focusing on single-player content rather than the multiplayer-fest that is Factions, she may have two new classes, the Dervish and the Paragon, lots of new items, quests, et cetera up her sleeve, but really, folks, she is the same.

    Get clicking to read the rest of the preview. Stop by our Guild Wars Ten Ton Hammer Community site to catch up on all the latest news and information or share your thoughts with us on this and all your favorite MMOs in the new Ten Ton Hammer Forums today!
