New, Free Killzone Shadow Fall Multiplayer Maps Revealed – PlayStation.Blog

 

+ Posted by Poria Torkan // Producer, Guerrilla Games

Today we’re giving you a look at the first pair of downloadable multiplayer maps for Killzone Shadow Fall, inspired by key locations from the single-player campaign. The maps will be released to the community free of charge, and will be fully compatible with Killzone Shadow Fall’s Custom Warzone feature.

Killzone Shadow Fall DLC: Cruiser

First up is The Cruiser, a close-to-mid-range combat map set in the confines of a decommissioned ISA cruiser. Consisting of tight, claustrophobic corridors and interconnected compartments, the key to dominating this map is identifying and controlling its choke points.

Killzone Shadow Fall DLC: Hangar

Next is The Hangar, a wide-open map situated in the hangar bay of one of Helghan’s humongous mining spires. In addition to the main area, which offers long lines of sight suitable for sniping, the map contains alternative routes that will need to be secured for full control.

Apart from The Cruiser and The Hanger multiplayer maps, we’re also working on the first DLC expansion pack for Killzone Shadow Fall. We’ll have more information on what it entails and when it’s available in the near future. There’s a whole season of exciting multiplayer content coming to Killzone Shadow Fall, so be sure to pick up the Season Pass to get it all at the best value!

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

Break down the castle walls! En Masse Entertainment, a player-driven publisher focused on delivering fun and innovative online games, announced today that their action MMO, TERA: Rising, will be debuting all new content in their upcoming battleground, Corsairs’ Stronghold. Staying true to TERA’s action combat roots, a massive 20-player team will be given an arsenal of weapons and war machines to attack a stronghold defended by another 20-player team. Players will utilize battle tanks, airships, cannons and siege ladders to outwit and overpower their opponents. Then, the tables will turn when teams switch roles attacking and defending the stronghold.

The Corsairs’ Stronghold adds a whole new dynamic to TERA: Rising’s award-winning action combat system, demanding new cooperative tactics on foot and in the air. With gear equalized to a level playing field, players can enter the battleground starting level 30 and will need to rely on skill and wit to ensure victory. Upon entering the Corsairs’ Stronghold, players will be put on teams tasked with defending the anchorstone from swashbuckling invaders, or drafted to the offense tasked with destroying it. The Corsairs’ Stronghold will debut as part of a new patch in TERA: Rising on July 2, and current players will have the option to download this content early. The patch also contains the framework for future content and features that will roll out later this summer including the highly anticipated Alliance system and new raid dungeons that En Masse Entertainment will speak to in the coming weeks.

In TERA: Rising, players actively aim, dodge and block, as the game’s real-time combat system takes into account player skill and position as well as stats. Players join a united federation to save the world and can also participate in the game’s forward-thinking political system, through which they wield power based on their in-game political prowess or PvP combat skill. New players can enjoy standard status for free with no level cap or content restrictions. Anyone who purchased the game will gain permanent founder status with special privileges. Elite status is available for players who want to further customize their gameplay experience.

ArcheAge Fact Sheet

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

Platform(s): PC
Category: MMORPG
Publisher: Trion Worlds
Developer(s): XL Games
Release: TBD
ESRB: RP
Website:https://www.archeagegame.com/en/

Explore the vast world of ArcheAge, where your choices drive the ebb and flow of the world and feed the conflict. Band together with allies and construct massive castles to claim your lands, build farms and houses to power the economic engine. Fight for glory and fortune across land, sea, and air in massive PvP battles and epic naval combat – or go beyond two factions and live the life of an outlaw. In this world – the choices are yours to make!

Epic Player vs. Player Combat
The wealth and power at stake in the Land of Origin are known by all– and fiercely contested. Assemble your allies to rule your empire on these uncharted lands, or rally together forces and craft massive siege engines to forge history and find glory as you rip power from the iron grasp of the enemy.

Player-Driven Economy
Crafting, Gathering, and Trade are at the heart of ArcheAge and you are the engine that moves history forward. Master the economy and shape the world around you. Trade and transport goods to the front lines of the war. Construct massive galleons and towering castles. The endless war depends on alliances and community to work towards common goals to build, defend, and conquer.

Naval Combat on the High Seas
Between the three continents lies a massive uncharted ocean – and law has no place on these waters. Amass wealth by securing trade routes and controlling the flow of resources, devastate your foes in epic naval combat, or rule the oceans as a pirate…. but beware what else may lurk in these dark waters.

Player-Driven Justice
Those with grievous charges of theft, murder, and the like will find themselves before a jury of fellow players as justice is served at the hands of the people. Will they sympathize with your actions, or will the gavel sentence you a criminal? Those that continuously skirt the rule of law may find themselves exiled from their homelands to live the life of an outlaw – but on the bright side, a pirate answers to no one!

TERA: Rising – Over Half a Million New Players Since Free-to-Play Launch

New Model for the Fantasy MMO Is a Complete Success
Karlsruhe, 13/03/2013 – The free-to-play version of the fantasy MMO TERA has launched successfully: Over half a million new users have registered for the game since the move to free-to-play, which brings the total number of players registered for TERA: Rising up to over one million. The game’s operator Gameforge opened six new game servers just a few days after the free-to-play launch in order to meet the high demand.

Since the introduction of the free-to-play version, TERA players have created around 1.5 million characters with which they can experience adventures in the world of Arborea. The battle-ready Castanics are the most popular race, with the Humans and High Elves nipping at their heels, while the Warrior enjoys the greatest popularity among the classes, followed by the Sorcerer and the Archer.

With the move to free-to-play, the world of Arborea was expanded by the Crucible of Flame dungeon and a 3-v-3 arena called the Champions’ Skyring. In the future, regular content updates for TERA: Rising will keep on coming. The next such update, which will be released within the course of this year, will add a new feature to TERA’s political system: Players who belong to a guild will be able to enter into an alliance and vie for supremacy against other alliances on their server.

February 26, 2013

The situation worsens for the citizens of Wayfarer Foothills and Diessa Plateau. Volunteers have eased the burden, but more refugees hobble down from the Shiverpeaks. The storm there gains momentum, but the forces of good are beginning to rally. They’re sending their heroes to defend the land and its peoples. Someone must hold back the gathering storm.

In Flame and Frost: The Gathering Storm, the second installment in this four-part series, the stakes are raised, and battles rage, in the foothills of the Shiverpeaks.

The Elder Scrolls Online – The Alliance War – PvP !

The Alliance War

The drums of war have reached a fever pitch, calling the warriors of Tamriel to the field of battle.  The Daggerfall Covenant, the Ebonheart Pact, and the Aldmeri Dominion will take up arms and fight for control of Cyrodiil, the Imperial City, and the throne of Tamriel.

Featuring three-sided Player vs. Player (PvP) gameplay, The Elder Scrolls Online supports hundreds of players on screen at once in an open world fight for control of Cyrodiil. Seize, hold, and control the resources of massive strongholds. Utilize massive siege weapons to crumble fortress walls and smash through fortified gates.  Conquer the Imperial City, and your alliance’s top player could even be crowned Emperor!

Get ready for the most intense online PvP experience ever created, with The Elder Scrolls Online.

The System

In The Elder Scrolls Online, players choose to become members of one of three alliances. Each alliance has a unique story and specific goals.

  • The Daggerfall Covenant is comprised of the two Provinces of northwest Tamriel: High Rock and Hammerfell, home to the Bretons and the Redguards. The Covenant has also offered the Orcs the opportunity to return to their ancient homeland of Orsinium in exchange for their support. Working together, the three races have formed a powerful alliance that aims to restore the Second Empire and bring peace and prosperity back to Tamriel.

  • The Ebonheart Pact is the most tenuous of alliances, consisting of former enemies turned allies in northern and eastern Tamriel. The Nords, Dark Elves, and Argonians of Skyrim, Morrowind, and Black Marsh fight to restore stability to the Empire and ensure their own autonomy.

  • The Aldmeri Dominion is composed of the three races of southern Tamriel: the Wood Elves of Valenwood, the Khajiit of Elsweyr and the leaders of the Pact, the High Elves of the Summerset Isles. The Aldmeri Dominion fights to stop the dangerous machinations of humankind, and restore the Elven dominance in Tamriel.

To learn more about the different alliances, visit the alliances page

Massive, Epic Battles

The Elder Scrolls Online features the largest PvP battles seen in a major online RPG. The game supports hundreds of onscreen players in epic battles. Swords and axes collide, spells and powers illuminate the ground and sky, and fires rage on embattled stronghold walls. Will you survive these epic battles? Can your overwhelming force take the keep, or will you be forced to retreat?

The Elder Scrolls Online is built to accommodate hundreds of players onscreen at once.

Territory Gains

The three alliances do battle in the region of Cyrodiil, seeking to control the Imperial City and with it, the Ruby Throne of Tamriel. Each alliance must wrest control of strategic territories from the others, including massive fortresses, each with supporting farms, lumber mills, and other valuable resources.

Battles are concentrated around these resources and strongholds. Control of certain resources will extend the alliance’s influence in the region and help them take control of the Imperial City, and ultimately, control of the Ruby Throne itself.

Can you seize enough territory to control the Ruby Throne?

Control Elder Scrolls

Elder Scrolls are artifacts of immense power that aid an alliance in the ongoing battle to control Tamriel by conferring bonuses to every member of that alliance. Each alliance has a special stronghold in Cyrodiil where their Elder Scrolls are kept and protected – but enemy alliances can break in and take them if they are not guarded properly. Once access is gained and a Scroll taken, it must be taken back across Cyrodiil and placed in the alliance’s stronghold. Only then are the bonuses of the Scroll bestowed upon all the members of that alliance.

Capture an Elder Scroll, protect it, and return it to your alliance’s stronghold to wield its power and gain bonuses.

Siege Weapons

The battles for keeps and resources require more than the clash of steel. Alliances must use massive siege weapons to break down walls, smash open doors, and obliterate the armies of their opponents.

Everything from trebuchets and catapults to ballistae and battering rams are available for players to capture and use, allowing them to demolish the stone walls of keeps and collapse massive gates to gain entrance to heavily defended strongholds.

Become Emperor

In The Elder Scrolls Online, the highest-ranking player of an alliance is crowned Emperor when their alliance takes control of the Imperial City. You aren’t just fighting for your alliance; you’re fighting for the opportunity to be crowned Emperor, yourself.

Emperors gain special abilities that increase their prowess on the battlefield. They are true leaders of their alliance, and a force to be reckoned with.

An Emperor’s hold on power can be tenuous.  Can your alliance protect all of the strongholds necessary to maintain your dominance? How long will your reign as Emperor last before an ambitious foe cuts you down?

Participation & Scaling

Player vs. Player (PvP) in The Elder Scrolls Online is fun, rewarding, and accessible for PvP veterans or new players with no PvP experience.

The collapse of the Second Empire has left a vacuum of power in the Imperial City, and three alliances battle for supremacy. Whoever controls the Ruby Throne will crown an Emperor, and their alliance will rule all of Tamriel.

The Elder Scrolls Online features a battle leveling system that temporarily increases a player’s combat effectiveness to compete against higher level players, ensuring that everyone enjoys the experience, from players who have never experienced PvP combat, to seasoned veterans demanding a deep, rewarding PvP experience. Players may join the PvP action as soon as they reach level 10, and jump right into the action without fear.

Whether you’re a veteran or a rookie, you’ll be able to fight as a valuable member of your alliance and perhaps even lay claim to the throne.

Leaderboards and Achievements

The Elder Scrolls Online features leaderboards and achievements. Keep track of your ranking and compare yourself, your alliance, and your guild to that of your friends and enemies.

Points and Gold

While fighting for an alliance in PvP, players earn points that can help them purchase siege weaponry and other bonuses to aid their allies in the heated pitch of battle.

Just jumping in for the first time? Don’t worry – you can still earn siege weapons and bonuses! If you have yet to play PvP and want to join, you can contribute immediately by using gold earned in Player vs. Environment (PvE) in lieu of points.

TERA free-to-play to launch February 5th in Europe !

Gameforge to publish new content for the release of fantasy MMO

Karlsruhe, 30.01.2013 – With the switch to Free-to-Play, previous and future players have the chance to play one of the best-looking and innovative MMOs of the last few years for free. But that’s not all: just in time for the launch, the world of Arborea will be enhanced with additional content. This includes a new dungeon as well as a PvP arena offering experienced adventurers numerous new challenges and rewards.

TERA’s free-to-play model
TERA’s free-to-play model will include two standard account types: the Free User and the Veteran. Free Users receive full access to the entire game content – this includes, for example, the races, classes, instances, equipment items or players-versus-player content. Veteran status is reserved for players who purchased TERA before the switch to free-to-play and offers advantages that Free Users do not receive. Everyone has access to the TERA Club: amongst other things, players receive a special mount, a daily selection of boosts as well as different types of scrolls here. These can, for example, increase experience points and the amount of gold gained or can summon merchants, crystal merchants or the banker.  The monthly subscription fee of 12.95 euro for the TERA Club, is the same price as the previous subscription. If you subscribe to a 3-month membership, the fee is reduced to 11.65 euro and 12 months reduces it to 9.99 euro a month.

The item shop
Aside from the aforementioned boost items, the shop will include recovery, mana and stamina potions for character development. Service items are also available for purchase, with which players can change the name or appearance of their hero. In future, the shop will continue to be filled with exclusive mounts, weapon skins and clothing.
Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us
… and there’s more!
With another update due to appear later on in the year, TERA’s political system will also receive an additional feature. Players that belong to a guild can enter into an alliance with this feature and profit from useful bonuses in this community. The three alliances are enemies of one another and continually fight each other for dominance on the respective game server.

About TERA
TERA is a classic fantasy MMO, yet it stands out from games within its genre in some points. One such point is the so-called True Action Combat system – the first of its kind. Similar to the controls in action games, the player actively carries out their attacks and spells, instead of just pressing a key. In this way, their position in relation to their enemy is also decisive: enemies will be sighted once in the middle of the cross hairs. Even before release in summer 2012, TERA was praised by players and press alike, above all for its detailed graphics and the numerous innovative approaches, such as the novel political system.

Loadout system

In the build we played in London we had access to 5 loadouts slots which could be changed at any time. For RPG / MMO players see your loadout as a character sheet with gear and abilities all attached. You can swap loadouts at will, when you die in PVP you can select a new loadout, in PVE you can swap loadouts by opening the menu and equipping a new one. Managing your loadouts is extremely straight forward, equip one, then add the weapons, gear and abilities you want and that is it. You can name your loadouts so that you are able to pick them quickly.
