Albion Online finally has a release date, July 17th.
It also received a very big update (not in file size lol) that has changed and added so much to the game it's a bit overwhelming.
Faction bases that spawn daily and weekly bosses that will be contested by many guilds. World bosses, expedition quest that can be done solo or in groups. New skills, changes to the current skill system, more added to the destiny board and a better looking UI.
The world map has also been redone making it easier to find things and giving the world a more immersive feel.
Guild vs Guild and open world PvP will now be more balanced and...
well, if ya need more information, have a look HERE or watch the video.
Phantasy Star Online 2 is still going strong after all these years. Constant updates and collaborations, this time, PSO2 collabs with NieR: Automata. New costumes, hairstyles, weapon skins and more will be available through AC scratches some time in March.
Along with the NieR collab reveal, they also showed us other updates coming to PSO2, including a new boss.
Here are some pictures of the NieR items and upcoming boss.
Ever since hearing about the collab, I've been pretty excited. In the video below is my live reaction to the new content discussed in this article.
On January 19th in Korea, the ArcheAge 3.1 'The Beginning' expansion will go live.
This expansion brings new zones, new bosses, raids, new dailies to obtain honor and introduces the new Successor level system.
Successor levels allow players to unlock new abilities and grind for something past level 55. These are not new levels but work more like prestige. This new update also shows a whale on a dock.. so could we see whale hunting in the 3.1 update as well!?
The day the Assassin class went live on the CN client for Revelation Online, I gave it a try.
My first impressions are pretty good, but I find it a bit odd that you can only choose a loli as the female preset. From the Assassin trailer they showed off a male and female, both of them looking mature and badass. So.. it was a bit odd. Maybe they will add more presets and body types later.
The early skills are amazing. 10 minutes into the assassin and you already have cooler looking skills than most of the other classes. I ran the first solo dungeon and ended up in a new questing zone. I believe this update came with new zones for every class. Netease continues to bring new and amazing content to Revelation Online (CN) which means we will get it as well. I think we should get the assassin class shortly after OBT if not at launch of OBT.
You can check out this video made from a past broadcast over on my Twitch to see the Assassin in action.
I also want to make a correction,
Revelation Online could be getting a new graphics engine next year. Peria Chronicles interview reveals many concerns the players had after playing the floor demo at G-star 2016. Bless Online was rumored to be canceled but NOPE, it's still coming. The new combat system is in the works now.
Watch the video for more gaming news.
Soul Worker is a third person instance-based hack 'n' slash MMORPG. It's like a cel-shaded anime themed Vindictus.
The combat is amazing and the game is pretty fun. Even more with friends. Here are my first impressions.
Traps, mechanical minions, a giant mech and tons of guns.. The Gunslinger class overview is finally here!!
This is my 6th and last class overview. There is a 7th class planned to release around the end of the year and if thats true.. I guess i'll have to make one more

Here is my top 10 MMORPG list for games that have released in the west sometime this year or COULD be releasing in the west sometime
in 2016/2017. These are the games I am most hyped for! Remember though, it's just my opinion and hopefully you guys learn something
about the games mentioned in this list. For number 2, unfortunately it looks like its no longer being developed as Nexon showed a list
of upcoming games they were working on and number 2 was nowhere to be found :(
What MMOs are you guys looking forward to?
My 4th overview is here. This time we cover the Vanguard.
Hopefully this helps you get a general idea of how the Vanguard works and whether or not it's the class for you.
If you have a ton of experience with the Vanguard and would like to add or correct any information in this video please add the corrections in the comment section of this thread or
vid and I will update the video as needed.

The Occultist class in Revelation Online is a hybrid DPS/Healer class.
This class can deal major damage but also has the potential to be a strong healer.
The soul swap ability allows you to switch between light and dark mode on the go changing every one of your skills and giving them new effects. The Occultist is definitely one of the hardest classes to master if you plan on taking advantage of both of it's playstyles.
Watch my latest class overview video as we take a deeper look at the Occultist.
