Trion Worlds, creator of Defiance, have announced the first details on DLC for their epic MMO Sci-fi shooter. For the Season Pass holders, you should know the deal by now, you will get 5 DLCs at a reduced price. But the question always remains: Is that content going to be good enough to warrant my purchase of the Season Pass?
Well, I know this is just the first DLC but it looks like Trion Worlds will be doing everyone justice. Not only for the Season Pass holders, but there will also be free DLC so that it won’t isolate friends from playing with each other regardless of what content each other have. Which is a good thing seeing how Defiance has now surpassed over 1 million registered users and I’m quite sure that many of them are waiting it out to see what kind of DLC we will get from the Season Pass.

I really wish I’d gotten on the Neverwinter wagon sooner with the wealth of content out there now. It’s been awhile since I’ve been this eager for a title to be released and it just keeps getting better. On the games official YouTube channel, there are several videos that highlight the games various zones or areas. The latest, Rothé Valley, focuses on a town taken over by Drow and even seems to carry over into the Underdark! Read onfor the video and check out their official youtube channel for much more!

This being the fourth Beta weekend for Neverwinter right now I’ve been eager to get back into the game. I enjoyed the third beta weekend. During the week I did some homework getting to know Cryptic’s Star Trek Online so I could relate between the two games. The two do have their similarities but they are their own games as well. If you haven’t tried out Star Trek yet and you are a fan of the franchise I do recommend it. Even just to see the sights, it’s a fun trip.
One thing I didn’t get to try in Neverwinter was the Foundry. It turns out Star Trek Online even had a Foundry for gamers to create their own adventures. I’ve tried a couple Star Trek missions recently and I played some Neverwinter quests and both games have been quite enjoyable. Unfortunately I haven’t gotten in to the creation tool myself yet so the magic hasn’t been spoiled for me, but the system does seem to allow for quite a bit of story telling.

The new free to play Neverwinter MMO let beta testers give the game a whirl a few weekends back and I was lucky enough to get to be a part of the action. Unfortunately, I haven’t tried their Star Trek MMO, but after enjoying my time in the Forgotten Realms I do plan to see what the game based on Paramount’s franchise is like as well.

Like many MMO’s lately, Star Wars: The Old Republic is adding a limited free account to the subscription based game. Some content is restricted or closed off entirely, but if you’re eager to see what The Old Republic is all about, this is a great way to give in a whirl.
Many see this as a step back but I think it’s a fantastic idea. I liked the look of SW:TOR when my MMO gaming friend got into it, but I just couldn’t justify the cost. This way you can personally get in there and see what the game has to offer and if it’s right for you. Are these the droids your looking for? Find out November 15th! Less than one week away.Posted in: PC Tags: EA, F2P, MMO, star wars, SW:TOR, the old republic
Many fans were concerned when the first images of The Elder Scrolls Online were released. It looked and sort of felt more like Warcraft than The Elder Scrolls. I havn’t kept up much on the project since then and the gameplay video recently released really stands out as looking much more like the art style we’ve come to expect from the series.
It really is surprising considering at times it feels more like you’re watching Skyrim third person action rather than the MMO fans were unsure about. This is really something to check out and there are quite a few details released in this developers diary video below. Just for the basics it looks like all of Tamriel is accessable however Cyrodiil (the area from Oblivion) is contested and the location of the games PVP combat.
The magical words appared in World of Warcraft announcing Mists of Pandaria had launched! Sadly I watched as my guild mates ran off to make Pandaren monks, however I figured I’d go check out the action around Stormwind. I was delighted to learn that Battle Pet Trainers would train my character even though I don’t have the expansion! What followed has almost been an hour of awesome collecting action!

As has been noted before I’m currently reading World of Warcraft – Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War by Christie Golden and I’m loving it. Though it’s definitely a book you’ll want to pick up ASAP if you want to be the nerdy one like me that can impress your guild mates with how much you know about Theramore’s Fall.
