MMO Publisher Gameforge has announced the launch of Kingdom Under Fire 2 this past week! It took practically forever and a day to show up in the west but its finally here. This highly anticipated fusion of MMO and RTS is now available in North America and Europe on Windows PC. Kingdom Under Fire 2 takes place 50 years after the events of Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders. The game’s story campaign can be played online solo or with others. In KUF2, three factions – the Human Alliance, the Dark Legion, and the Encablossians – vie for dominance of Bersia. Players can choose from five character classes (Berserker, Elementalist, Gunslinger, Ranger, and Spellsword), and play in both hack-and-slash modes for their hero along with RTS modes to command over 80 different types of units. To start playing, you can purchase the game in one of three packages, priced at $29.99, $49.99, and $99.99 USD. Each offers exclusive content and bonuses of course.
Pearl Abyss held a special press conference to show off four upcoming games for their fans to look forward to. The first of these is Plan 8, which is a sci-fi shooter. They will use their tried-and-true MMO combat system to make a unique shooting experience. The trailer for this game at least looks really cool. Speaking of shooting, DokeV is shooting for a 2020 beta test and is an MMO for all ages. It centers around unique creatures, known as “Dokebi”. These creatures grow and gain power through people’s dreams. Next we have Crimson Desert which is a fantasy title set on the continent of Pywel. In production by 2018, it features an all-star development cast and is aiming for beta tests on PC and console in 2020. Though “Crimson Desert” was a location in Black Desert Online, they insist it is its own IP. Crimson Desert did start as a prequel to Black Desert, but the team created a new storyline and new characters instead. The last game also originally had ties to Black Desert but in a greater way. We also have Shadow Areana. In this, 50 players did battle in a Battle Royale-style mode. Shadow Arena will have two modes (solo and team) and players will do battle in an action-packed setting. With real-time action for attacks and evasion, it promises to be intense. The goal is the same: be the last spirit standing. The closed beta test is going to begin on November 21st, ending on November 24th. You can register for it in the link below.
MapleStory announced the release date for its Glory: Strengthening Alliances update alongside a new trailer! This new update, available on November 20th, introduces the Glory event which will run until January 28, 2020, offering special rewards and missions as players rank up in the Maple Alliance’s Glory Guard. Players who join by December 3rd will receive VIP Royal Hair and Face Coupon rewards. Also starting on November 20 is a Tera Burning event, where Tera Burning characters earn two extra levels per level up until level 200, and the Extreme Breakthrough Event, which offers rewards for players who level up new characters from 201 to 220. On December 4, a new Anima thief class, Hoyoung, will be made available too.
