Of Gods And Spaceships: New Skyforge Trailers

If there was one winner at this year's E3, it was fans of open worlds. The industry has become so efficient at creating beautiful places that there's half a dozen games coming in the next year that I want to play in spite of their mechanics, not because of them. Skyforge is on the list. It's an MMO likely to be a grind to play,…

Obsidian And Allods Online Devs Making “Skyforge”

Hmm, here's a thing. An announcement has been made at Russian game convention KRI, saying that Obsidian and the Allods team Astrum Nival are going to be making a new MMO, the trailer for which you can see below. Sadly it's in Russian, which I do not speak. Anyone able to give us the gist? The game is called Skyforge and Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart…

Alloda Changes: Allods Expansion Allows Allod Ownership

An Allod, as I understand it, is one of the many shattered bits of the Allods Online world that makes up the floating archipelago in which the game is set. The latest patch, New Horizons, introduces the opportunity for players to own an Allod, as well as build upon it. There's also a revamped psionicist class, and some other changes to how things work that…

Allods Remains Undaunted, Erodes Grind

I found Allods to be interesting, but frankly a bit lacking where it counts, when I played it. The operators of the free MMO, Gala Networks, are trying to reduce some of those issues with their new expansion for the game, Undaunted, which as well as pouring in new content massively reduces the rate of grind required to get through the first 25 levels. It…

Allods Online Finally Hits Official Launch

Allods Online, which is actually not bad in the scheme of free-to-play MMOs, is hitting its official launch "very soon", along with its fourth expansion. It's had one hell of a beta, with three expansions added, bringing the game to a 2000-quest beast, which I think was about how questy WoW was on launch. The expansion is for high level players and adds more to…

Allods Expands Today

That's "Volume 1: Revelations of Gipat", to you. Allods' first expansion raises the level cap to 42, adds 100 quests, and a new instance. The full patch notes are here, if you're interested in the grimy details. As I understand it, this patch also removes one of the death penalties that had been annoying people so much, which should make things a little more playable.…

Allods Online review

Free-to-play MMOs don't tend to get the time of day around RPS Towers, but I thought I'd had a look at this one because... well, it's pretty. Allods Online has some exquisite art, and as we all know, it's best to judge things by superficial appearances. Hell, if you don't judge a book by its cover then you tend to end up reading the wrong…

Allods More MMO: Allods Open Beta

Crazy-lookin' Russian MMO Allods Online is in open beta for Europe. It's noteworthy for having ship vs ship battles in the astral plane, as well as having a character race called "Gibberlings". Here's a beautiful quote from Gala networks CEO, Hyun Hur: "After a long time of Closed Beta testing and polishing the game in cooperation with the developer Astrum Nival, we’re glad to open…

Astral Projection: Allods Online

This caught my eye earlier, perhaps because it involves dimension-hopping flying ships. It's a Russian MMO that is perhaps best described as being something like "World Of Fantasy Naval Combat On The Astral Plane". Allods Online is a fantasy MMO in which players adventure in the astral, and take up arms for two factions which are duking it out in giant magical galleons. Between, presumably,…
