Have we settled on an official name for MMO-y action-RPGs yet? MMO action-RPG? Action-MMORPG? Diablonlines? Hmm. This question is of professional relevance to me, as Tera developers Bluehole Studio are now making one of those there games, whatever they’re called.
Devillian [official site] will have players beat monsters until money and items fall out their guts, but also offer guilds and alliances and wars and whatnot. Rift folks Trion Worlds yesterday announced plans to bring the free-to-play AMMORPG (I like the “ammo” in there, v. action-packed – this could work!) to Europe and North America this year.
