It has been a busy month in the world of MMOs, here is just some of the latest news that has caught the interest of OV members.
Planetside 2 is a game that is certainly being closely followed after OV spent a lot of time as an Outfit in the original. They have currently entered closed Beta and at the same time have released a cinematic trailer. As good as this trailer is, it is a little unbelievable that a Smurf could kill anything without a Jackhammer… Loyalty Until Death!
Another game that is currently in Beta is Guild Wars 2 , a sequel that looks like it may define the next generation of Sword and Sorcery MMOs, and all for zero subscription fee. It promises to be a living, breathing fantasy world with personal storylines, a dynamic event system and world-class PvP. The pre-order headstart begins on 25th August.
Star Wars: The Old Republic has also announced some upcoming content, complete with a cinematic teaser featuring a droid design that may be familiar to those who have played the previous Knights of the Old Republic games. Not only that, but Bioware have also announced that they will be expanding Star Wars: The Old Republic to include a Free-to-Play option later this year.
With so many great games being released or updated, it is going to be a busy second half of the year for Octavian Vanguard. See you in game.
