In Albion‘s case there is no level system. Instead, stats and effectiveness are based on the current gear players have equipped and which stat bonuses they’ve chosen. This puts the game in a unique situation, as it gives all players the same chance at success.

Skyforge moves up to the third place in July , during August to July we definitely see your enthusiasm for this upcoming MMORPG from My.com, the team has held key giveaway event twice through facebook and “Create a Class” Community Contest! However, the keys’ number could be counted by fingers are not easy for players to scramble. Envy the guys who are lucky to get great chance to the Closed Beta. But don’t worry, beta test is likely to come in these two month, interested players please be patient and wait.
Skyforge is a highly-stylized MMORPG featuring exciting dynamic combat inspired by console action games, where players develop from immortal warriors protecting their home world into powerful gods dominating the battlefield as invincible giants. Though Cryomancer is a great choice for beginner, I prefer Paladin class much more for they are skilled at defending themselves and allies by mighty shield. What about you?
MMOsite has teamed up with Red 5 Studio for a FREE Package Giveaway for the team-based sci-fi action shooter Firefall this month, we didn’t expect the event would be so hot that thousands of packages were gone in two days. So I think most of you have tried out the shooter and had lots of fun!

Korean sandbox MMORPG Black Desert began its third Closed Beta on Sep.17, and it just ended on Sep.28. You guys are crazy about this game as I know from the Only One Key Giveaway Event held this month, and now here you can check out the hand on experience from Tony and first look from ZagatoMKR. Sharing a same development team with C9, Black Desert gradually shows a mystical and elegant beauty with top-notched graphics by seeing the Character Customization review.
Compared with the 2nd Closed Beta, Black Desert KR 3rd CBT has been improved a lot in PK system, new cut scenes, pet system as well as special dyeing system. The music in this game is said to be crazy. Check out the video below.
The only pity is that western players cannot enjoy the game or smoothly client download because of the language barrier and network lag. But I bet you’ll feel a little comfort to know that the develop team currently is preparing western office setting up. “Even though we’d like to see the Game released by the end of 2015, we feel, that early 2016 is a more realistic estimation.” Told the develop team. At least, we can assume that Black Desert beta test will be held in 2015.
Finally, ArcheAge is officially launched this month, thanks to Trion Words quickly ended various tests around just two months. No matter in graphics or gameplay, this long-anticipated open world MMORPG has won high praise by players in the US and Europe. ArcheAge allows players to create a character for a variety of classes, which could be changed at any time if you have enough gold. And it is similar to other Korean PvP games that few communications happen between player and the rival only if player complete a quest for “learning language of other factions”.
Some gamers said the body customization is comparatively less than face customization. Players can customize almost all the features on face, even scar and wrinkle. But owning to the over-crowded population at officially launch of ArcheAge, players have to wait and queue for a long time so as to get in, and poorly I was the one queuing online at that time. The longest hour is said to be nine!!! So some players tease this anticipated MMORPG should change its name to “Queue Age”.
The courts and trails system is the most fascinating part for me, players doing murder, fight and steal will be taken to court and determined by a group of jury whether to be put into prison or not,. To better avoid this interesting trouble, here is a great guide telling Dos and Donts for you.
Well, as to the long queue time in ArcheAge, it’s totally understandable with numerous players’ join at its launch. I know you are complaining, but maybe some days later, you’ll fall right back into it.
