PC MMO

Reign of Guilds Preview

Remember five years ago when it seemed like everyone was trying to create the next World of Warcraft? The Blizzard MMO inspired so many different entries into the genre that its hard to remember them all. For many reasons those games haven’t stuck around and the genre itself has become rather stale. That’s why when I had the chance to check out the very early days of development on Atlant Games new project Reign of Guilds it peaked my interest.

Preview: Everquest Next Landmark

Before World of Warcraft there was EverQuest, a fantasy MMO that has survived and thrived since its release in 1993. In fact, 2013 saw the release of the MMO’s twentieth expansion, “Call of the Forsaken.” While EverQuest enjoys its continued existence, plans to develop an “next-gen” version of the game, aptly named EverQuest Next, have been cooking since 2009. The first iteration of this new game is Landmark, an open world sandbox game available to those who buy into its early access. While Landmark is fine on its own as a game, it is a little difficult to accurately pin down where it fits within the scope of EverQuest Next. Is this an early version of the game or nothing more than a companion piece? Time will tell!

Final Fantasy XIV seems to have redeemed itself from its misguided first steps out into the voracious MMO sphere, emerging as a competitor that delivers both questing and combat with a zeal I'm not sure I've seen in the genre before. In other words, it's new surtitle seems quite apt to me, and with the open beta phase and official launch both due before the summer's out, it won't be long until you get to see for yourself: A Realm Reborn: Final Fantasy XIV launches for PC and Playstation 3 on August 27th.
