DC Universe Online is headed to Xbox One this spring

Five years ago, DC Universe Online debuted on PC and PlayStation 3. Much has changed since then, including a transition to free-to-play and a PS4 port, but there's still more to be done. Daybreak Games (formerly Sony Online Entertainment) i...

 
Runescape Old School photo
Runescape Old School

The old version of Runescape has a new expansion

Adding new content to Runescape Old School, the server which aims to recreate when the game was in its glory days, seems kind of weird to me. If the whole point of it is that it’s a nostalgia-fueled romp through the game that stole ev...

The Elder Scrolls Online will launch in Japan in June of 2016

The Elder Scrolls Online has found a decent niche as a subscription-free game (several of my friends on all three platforms play it), but will it find success in other regions? ZeniMax is seemingly hopeful, as publisher DMM has acquired the...

 
Black Desert Online
Despite there being closed betas for it in Korea since 2013, Pearl Abyss’ Black Desert Online only recently finally made its way to the West, with its first English-language closed beta test. With an appealing action-based combat and a hugely detailed character creation system, I took a look to see whether this will be an MMO worth sticking with by the time it fully launches.   read

Winter Events
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Mince pies, gingerbread men, last-minute panic buying of presents, and, of course, shutting yourself away from your family for the entire time to take part in some of the many i...   read

Black Desert Online is getting its first English-language beta test this month

Upcoming Korean MMO Black Desert Online has been making waves for quite a while now. The game is already in closed beta in Korea and Russia, and so the trickle of information coming from it has meant people have been eager for a while now t...

Play Final Fantasy XIV for free for four days

Are you a lapsed Final Fantasy XIV player? Did you try it out, only to find it didn’t quite click with you, or maybe you clocked hundreds of hours and, unfortunately, have been unable to renew your subscription? Well, turns out you&rs...

 
Dragomon Hunters preview
"Dragomon Hunter is one of the games where we've made the most changes [to appeal to the western audience]," Aeria Games' Product Marketing Manager Alexandre Bousquet tells me. That doesn't mean shaving the points off of spik...   read

Warhammer 40K

Oh hey, a Warhammer 40K game that looks okay

Games Workshop isn't the most discerning of license holders. Ever since the demise of THQ, the company has allowed just about anyone to make a video game based on Warhammer 40,000. The situation has reached the point where Destructoid boss...

Here's a quick look at World of Warcraft's new Demon Hunter class

The World of Warcraft: Legion expansion isn't set to debut until mid-2016 (!), but Blizzard has provided alpha access to some individuals far ahead of its release. As of this week I had a chance to try out the Demon Hunter class, which ...

 
Life is Feudal: Your Own
Life is Feudal: Your Own finally released on Steam last week after a hefty period in early access. The idea is great: take survival sims like Rust and The Forest, and add a pinch of Mount & Blade to make the ambitious med...   read

I watched a Korean musical about an MMO and so can you

As a prelude to the Blade & Soul World Championship, NC Soft put together a Blade & Soul musical. I suppose it wasn't technically about an MMO since it was the Blade & Soul story, but I'm really not sure about anything after th...

Blade & Soul launch
It's been a long time coming. Hugely popular Korean MMO Blade & Soul was confirmed for Western release over three years ago and it's finally happening. It went into beta last month and some beta weekends remain: November...   read

Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns won't change your opinion of Guild Wars

My experience with Guild Wars 2 has been very similar to a lot of people I've met over the years. We all agree it's a wonderful, beautiful take on MMOs, and delivers on its promise of a subscription-free game. But at the same time, we ...

 
Final Fantasy XIV
Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward was a tremendous expansion, all things considered. It brought in a whole new storyline that was worth getting invested in, new classes, and tons of additional activities including a raid. B...   read

MapleStory is getting a VR game for some reason

When I was younger, I always confused 2D anime MMO MapleStory with other 2D anime MMO Gaia Online. I wasn't a particularly bright kid. MapleStory had a cool idea by mixing up normal MMO trappings by making the game a 2D plat...

World of Warcraft: Legion will arrive 'on or before' September 2016

Well, Blizzard is seemingly letting all of the beans spill out before any of its BlizzCon conferences take place this weekend! According to an image straight from Battle.net (which has been taken down), the World of Warcraft: Legion expansi...

Black Desert, that Korean MMO, is getting a King of Fighters costume

You may recognize the name Black Desert from its insanely detailed character creation tool. At this point though my interest has transcended mere avatar construction, and I want to play the damn thing. My interest has been further piqu...

Blizzard's done telling us how many subscribers World of Warcraft has

Every three months, like clockwork, Blizzard has shared World of Warcraft subscription statistics as part of its quarterly report. The MMO is perfectly healthy, but the fanbase isn't at the fever pitch that it was at several years ago....

Star Trek Online celebrates new Trek show with free Enterprise stuff

Rejoice, Trek fans. On the off chance you haven't heard yet, CBS is planning a new Star Trek TV series, which will premiere as part of the CBS All-Access streaming service in the far-flung future timeline of 2017, right on time to get ...

Man, I'm surprised Star Wars: The Old Republic is still trucking along. You have to give it to BioWare (and to some extent, EA) for staying with it after its mixed reception at launch, so-so expansion packs, and its tran...   read

Final Fantasy XIV's patch 3.1 will once again feature Knights of the Round

I haven't been playing Final Fantasy XIV as much as I'd like, mostly due to the content drought and other obligations. But that will change when patch 3.1 hits, which is set to bring a ton of new activities to the game. One of the bigg...

Yo, check this out. Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns came out last Friday and I got ten codes for it. I bet that's more than you have. Lucky for you, I'm a super nice guy. Here's the deal: Arena.net gave codes to Amazon who...   read

Black Desert Online won't be free in the West

You may not know Black Desert Online by name, but you might recognize its impressive character creator; that Tom Cruise lookalike makes me laugh to this day. The game itself, a massively multiplayer action-RPG, has been playable in Korea an...

Rift's latest update is the biggest one since launch

Remember Trion’s Rift? I really liked it; it had a lot of excitement behind it before release, and then when it came out people seemed to forget all about it. The jump to free-to-play seemed to help a bit with getting players back, b...
