Teaser Site Live Early, then Down, but Fallout 4 Confirmed!

It seems someone jumped the gun at Bethesda at the teaser site for Fallout 4 (Fallout4.com) went live a little early this morning. It's down now, but Gameranx EIC Ian Miles Cheong caught a screen grab before it disappeared again. Ladies and gentlemen... are you ready to return to the Wasteland?

Camelot Unchained: We Are Older Than Average Gamers

We Are Older Than Average Gamers

I feel comfortable saying the majority of CU backers hailed from DAOC, which launched on October 10, 2001. Back then, MMORPGers were likely a bit ahead of the times, had a decent chunk of expendable income (or their parents did) and were likely more...um, "mature" (for lack of a better word) than the toddlers walking around playing phone "apps" these days.

What We Want from Fallout 4

As Mike B will attest, Fallout is a special series for us here at MMORPG.com. While the series has never gotten an MMO or true online treatment, we're still fans of the venerable and highly regarded franchise. And today, with the announcement of Fallout 4 from Bethesda, we figured there's no better time to postulate about what we want to see in the newest version of the Wasteland.

The Great Tank Makeover

Games are made available on a new console all the time, not many however get a complete makeover from the ground up. World of Tanks is a great game on the Xbox360, but the visual and auditory makeover to bring it to the Xbox One is a work of art.

Power Rankings - MMOGs Currently In Beta

If we were to count all the MMOGs and quasi-MMOGs presently in various stages of testing, I have no doubt that the total would have three digits. Naturally, they'd differ widely with respect to how much interest they are generating. Frankly, we'd find a fair number that are effectively invisible, unknown except to the most ardent industry observers.

Chronicles of New Eden - Chance Ravinne Gets His Revenge

When most people were watching the fireworks on the cool evening of July 4th, Chance Ravinne, stealth bomber extraordinaire, was making his own. Where many prefer to beat their chests and flex their muscle flying some of EVE's largest, most expensive ships, Chance prefers the silent approach. He is dagger in the night, the cheetah in the reeds; waiting for that one moment a pilot drops his guard.




Blade & Soul: It’s Finally Coming to America

It’s Finally Coming to America

Some might say that 3 years is too long to wait for an Eastern bred MMORPG to come to the West. In the case of Blade & Soul, it seems like the long detour to an English client has only created more pent up demand for the Wuxia-themed game from NCSOFT and Team Bloodlust. And we're happy to announce that Blade and Soul is indeed launching as a F2P MMORPG in the US and EU this winter, with a closed beta to begin this fall. The wait, as it were, is almost over.

Hands On with Blademaster, Force Master and Summoner

As we announced elsewhere on the site, Blade & Soul is finally coming to Europe and North America this winter, with a closed beta beginning this fall. The Free to Play MMORPG from Team Bloodsport and NCSOFT has a lot of pent up demand behind it, and we got our hands on the Force Master, Blademaster, and Summoner classes to give you our first impressions.




Elder Scrolls Online: Is Zenimax Being Secretly Transparent?

Is Zenimax Being Secretly Transparent?

One of the best things a game developer can do is get direction from those who play it. While a developer may have passion for the game they are creating, they will never understand the game itself like those who play it day in and day out. We play the games for a lot longer than any developer. So of course we all have feedback and design concepts that we feel could improve the overall quality of the game.




Camelot Unchained: A Pet Class That Isn't a Pet Class

A Pet Class That Isn

How do you make a pet class for a game that is being built for large scale open world pvp battles? As much as I love them (and have loved them since I first dabbled in "Creature Handler" way back in Star Wars galaxies) pets in any game are hard to get right and in a PVP game they can be downright game breaking! When I heard CU was going to have a "pet class" stretch goal my skeptical pager started buzzing!
