  • Age of Conan Updated Impressions: More Than Just Swordplay At GameSpot

    Gamespot has posted a preview of the upcoming Age of Conan. This preview takes a look at the roles of commander and lord.

    BARCELONA--Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures is more than a simply massively multiplayer online hack and slash-fest. Oh, make no mistake, the game based on Robert E. Howard's classic tales of the boozing, brawling, babe-loving barbarian king will offer you plenty of opportunities to get to the wetworks with your favorite edged weapon on all sorts of enemies. It just isn't all there is to do in this multifaceted game, as we discovered on the floor of X06 today.

  • Standard MMO subscription package replaces proposed PLAYplus system as Codemasters Online Gaming respond to community feedback

    A press release has been issued this morning to announce that the previously announced PLAYplus system is being done away with in response to community feedback.

    The PLAYplus payment system allowed players to choose from a range of monthly subscription packages, each offering different levels of in-game incentives at varying price points. Following experimentation with the system within the beta test and monitoring the feedback from thousands of ArchLord community members, the PLAYplus system will not be implemented for the game’s release.

  • Seed Forced to Say Good Bye

    Stunning news hit our desks this morning from the Ten Ton Hammer's Most Original Game for E3 2006 winner, Seed. A Letter has been sent out by Lars Kroll Kristensen CEO of Runestone Game Development.

    For the past two months, I and a few others have attempted to sell a partnership deal to a long list of publishers and MMO companies, trying to raise the capital we needed to finish the game properly, and re-launch it in a form it, and especially you the community, deserve. While we have received a great deal of interest, we have not been able to close a deal. The harsh reality is that we have now officially run out of money, and out of options, and therefore, we cannot pay salaries, rent or hosting fees.

  • The creative head of Cryptic Studios talks to MMORPG.com

    For the conclusion of their AGC Coverage, MMORPG.com offers this interview with the Director of Cryptic Studios.

    The last appointment of AGC brought MMORPG.com face to face with Jack Emmert, the Creative Director of Cryptic Studios. We spoke about the City of Heroes/Villains franchise and what else may be on the horizon for this California-based development studio.

    Currently, Cryptic is staffing up on a cross-platform (PC and unspecified next-generation consoles) massively-multi-player game. While Emmert was not yet able to give us much details, he did tell me specifically that the company is not worried about potential DC Comics and Marvel MMORPGs in development at Sony and Microsoft and wont avoid the genre that made them famous out of fear of being crowded out. He pointed out that there are hundreds of fantasy games and they view superhero games as a genre unto themselves. Does that mean their next-gen MMO is a superhero game? No, but it doesn’t rule it out either.

  • A Look at Dwarves

    The Dwarves of Dvergheim

    Like axe-bristling avalanches, dwarven legions surge across Agon's battlefields, neither wavering nor resting until victory is secured. At any stage in any battle, no matter how ridiculous the odds may be, dwarves believe - with unblinking certainty - that they will prevail through superior skill, rock-hewn strength and indomitable bravery.

  • Adventure Area: The Sands of Menechtarun

    The official site for Dungeons and Dragons Online has been updated with a look at a new area that will be open in Modle 3. This area is a vast desert that sprawls across the western reaches of Xen'drik.

    Menechtarun
    The Menechtarun is a vast desert that sprawls across the western reaches of Xen'drik. In ancient times, the Menechtarun was ruled by a tyrannical Wizard-King and his demonic servants. Today, these lands are home to rugged settlers, barbaric gnoll tribes and a sect of fanatical drow and scorrow called the Vulkoorim, or the "Chosen of Vulkoor." The Wizard-King himself is long dead, but his ageless servants have flourished, giving rise to another name for this region -- the Demon Sands.
