It's the dawn of a new era -- and considering all of the bloodshed that goes on in Mortal Online, you may even call this a... Red Dawn? Wolverines? OK, sorry, but we had to get past the obvious puns.
Mortal Online's been on the down-low ever since last year's launch, but that doesn't mean that the Star Vault devs were sipping piña coladas on a gore-soaked beach. On the contrary, as the team's been hard at work on a new expansion that was revealed in its full glory earlier this week: Mortal Online: Dawn.
Instead of focusing on a new continent or a higher level cap, Dawn's adding several quality-of-life features to the game. These include an updated mount system that will eventually let you breed your ideal stud or mare, a cooking profession for the gourmet chefs out there, health
Relic has announced a Dark Angels Space Marine chapter for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II – Retribution’s multiplayer.
The Dark Angels Pack adds the Space Marine chapter to the game with eight models for the major multiplayer units as well as new color schemes for the others.
The Force Commander is replaced by a Dark Angels Company Master complete with winged helmet, and the Tactical Marine squad all sport Dark Angels robes. Additionally, the Scout Squad, Assault Marine Squad and Terminators will all receive similar chapter-specific revisions. Space Marine vehicles will also get a visual makeover with the pack, adding custom designs and emblems so they will stand out from other vehicles.
The Dark Angels Pack is slated for release on Steam, the THQ E-Shop and select digital ret
Since the rifts first appeared, the undead have plagued Telara, a nightmare of reanimated flesh. Lately, however, the threat has grown even more terrible, as Death Rifts surge open all across the world, pouring forth walking corpses like never before. This calamity will shake Telara to its core and tax the limits of Ascended endurance, yet it is only the first of many to follow… assuming the defenders can throw back Telara’s foes.
Soon the Endless Court will launch an unprecedented mass invasion. The most terrifying servants of Regulos will lead these hordes into battle: liches, ettins, gravemakers. Alsbeth herself will march through every region of the world, raising dread champions to sow the discord for which she is named. Old enemies will rise and fight for oblivion alongsi
30 years from now, Apple took over the world with its technology. This is an idea for an Apple commercial I came up with. This isn't a real commercial, it's just for fun.
Sony Entertainment Online is reported to have closed three studios and laid off one third of its total staff.
Sources told Kotaku that the MMO developer’s Seattle, Tucson, and Denver studios had been closed, with all staff sacked.
The Austin and San Diego studios are also said to have been hit hard, with half of each’s employees laid off.
Duke Nukem creator George Broussard brought the rumour to public attention with a tweet, outing an industry rumour that the Seattle studio was at death’s door.
Sony Online Entertainment is yet to comment. The publisher’s current line up includes Star Wars Galaxies, Free Realms and DC Universe Online, but rose to MMORPG prominence in late 1999 with Everquest.
According to the magazine, via CVG, sources close to the magazine said “the next in Activision’s megaton FPS series will be announced in mid-April.”
Official PlayStation Magazine UK rumors also suggest MW3 will include “at least some sections,” pertaining to the character Ghost’s past.
“Based on the ending of MW2, we’d be surprised if the story doesn’t pick up with Soap and Price on the run, after they were set up by General Shepard,” reads the PSM3 article.
While no specific date was provided in the magazine for the announcement, Activision announced Black Ops on April 30 last year, so and April reveal would fit the pattern a bit.
We’ll send Activision a mail, of course.

Your typical Massively news post centers on an item or two of interest from a current MMORPG. It might be class-related info, it might be a juicy dev quote, or it might be a video. Rarely, though, do we manage to cram all three of those items into a single, value-packed news post quite like this one. And we owe it all to the folks at Nexon who've smothered us with a veritable gob of new information about Dragon Nest.
The free-to-play fantasy MMO's website has just updated with our trifecta, and you can pay a visit to link number one to learn about the game's Warriors, Clerics, Archers, and Sorcerers. Behind link number two is a lengthy dev blog from Desmodeus Dragon Nest's lead producer who talks about the title's visuals, action, and story. Not to be outdone is link number three, whic
