Reboot: Otherlands MMO Finally Drawing Near

Sci-fi novel series-turned-MMO Otherland [official site] has been stuck in limbo since 2010 when a release date came and went without so much as a faint rustling of tumbleweeds in the games media world. So what's going on exactly? After getting a second temporary release date back in 2012, which once again passed us all by, Otherland is going for a release date announcement hat-trick. It's…

An Hour With UFO Online’s Beta: Choose You Faction

UFO Online is a free to play, browser-based turn-based strategy game from Gamigo, and it's heavily based on both X-COM and XCOM. It's in open beta now. I tried to play it. It's enemies's turn! I do love me a shonkily-translated game, and whatever happened while gamingo's browser-based X-COMlike UFO Online was being transformed from German to English, the net result is that it reads…

A Tad Unusual? Otherland Enters Beta

Any Tad Williams fans in the audience? Ah, just that guy at the back. Oh well, this is for you, anyway: Otherland, the Tad Williams-directed MMO based on his sci-fi scribblings, is going to enter beta this weekend. It's closed for now, but you can sign up for a chance to get in on the main site. (Top left!) Otherland is quite ambitious, with different…

Black Prophecy: Tactics Launches Beta Broadside

Or, to give the new game its full title, Black Prophecy Tactics: Nexus Conflict. This was its own project until fairly recently - simply Nexus Conflict - but now this game of online capital ships has become a multiplayer RTS spin-off from F2P space MMO, Black Prophecy. Hence, Black Prophecy Tactics: Nexus Conflict. Got all that? Right, good, because the beta for this RTS is…

Got Space For Another F2P MMO? Here’s Nexus Conflict

If a game doesn't have a connection to my favourite dark matter infused vacuum, I'll usually take the time to write a letter to the publishers, developers, neighbours, suggesting a rethink. Sometimes it works, sometimes I get my door kicked in by a SWAT team and taken to a 'facility' for a rest and a cup of tea. Take Gamigo's Nexus Conflict: It was originally…

Rolling Stone: Jagged Alliance Online Goes To Open Beta

The alliance that is jagged, but also online (rather than the one that will soon be back in action) has an open beta! You can completely sign up for that right here. I've no idea whatsoever about whether this is any good, or not, but I do rather hope it is, because this is the same company (and therefore the same design and tech) as…

Pirate Galaxy Flags Nebulous Update

Gosh, has it really been over two years since I dabbled in Pirate Galaxy? The browser-based space 'em up has been growing apace since that time and has just announced a major update. They explain: "All changes will result in the exploration of the Sirius Singularity being significantly easier, and even small clans will be able to get the most out of the game. The…

Otherland Is A New MMO That Looks Pretty

Here's a new, visually splendid, science fiction action MMORPG from Singaporean dev RealU and free-to-play types Gamigo. Based on the "cyberpunk Lord Of The Rings" book series by Tad Williams, Otherland seems to mash up abstract sci-fi visuals with more traditional fantasy MMO guff, as well as some entirely abstract things. Crazy whirling fly-through announcement trailer details all this, below:

Aiming At Jagged Alliance Online Footage

It's GamesCom next week in Cologne, and that means we're about to be engulfed in a torrent of news. A few early trailers and so on have started turning up, and he first of these to attach to our GamesCom 2011 tag will be this: Jagged Alliance Online (not to be confused with Jagged Alliance: Back In Action). Gamigo's MMOG take on the tactical squad-combat…

Black Prophecy Expands, Americanises

Free to play - and frankly fairly okay - space shooter MMO Black Prophecy has expanded today. The expansion is called EPISODE 1: INFERNO IN TULIMA, and I think it is called that to make it sound exciting. The trailer, which you can see below, is also clearly designed to make it seem exciting. I don't know what is going on here, but it seems…

Black Prophecy Devs Address Community

Free-to-play space MMO Black Prophecy is actually fairly interesting. I played through the prologue, but had to move on to other things before I really got stuck into the main world. It's impressively pretty, and the mouse-keyboard space combat controls are surprisingly action-oriented. I did get splatted attempting to higher level missions with RPS chums, however, so I suspect that linear level ladder might be…

Black Prophecy Live In Europe

Germanic space-action MMO Black Prophecy is now live, and free to play. I've not had a chance to play this yet, but I surely will. My sources tell me that the action is solid enough, but much of the MMO side of the game remains superfluous or wonky, which would be a shame, if true. It certainly looks pretty, at least. Anyone else got any…

UFO Online: X-Com In Your Browser?

Morning, netlings. Take a look at this- it's a recently announced game from German publisher Gamigo called UFO Online: Fight For Earth, it's obviously X-Com inspired and it'll play straight out of your browser using Unity. Full press release and a brief trailer after the jump, but this looks to me like it might be neat, offering hot PvE and PvP turn-based action, slathered in…

European Union: Patrician IV English Demo

One Mr Bastock informs us that following the release of the German demo there's a PC version of the September-releasing economics game demo available on Steam. You can totally download it now. Or later. Or earlier, if you knew about it before we told you. Go demo! Go demo! EDIT: This is interesting. The demo was up there earlier and now appears to have been…

Watch This Space: Black Prophecy Footage

Troubled action space-MMO Black Prophecy seems to have had a fairly good showing at GamesCom 2010, and both trailer and off-screen wobblecam footage of the demo (via MMOReviews) suggest that it is looking like one of the most promising free-to-play games in Gamigo's rapidly-swelling portfolio. The "real" flight model combined with persistent world stuff might just make this a viable alternative for all those folks…

Making The Cut: Jagged Alliance Online

Emerging from the jungles of Cologne is news of a classic PC series getting a reboot. Jagged Alliance is back as a browser based tactical MMO. And yes, there's I can hear the sigh from here, even before I've published the story. But abstractly, this is the sort of game which could transfer interestingly across and - hey! - at least it's turn based. There's…

In League: Patrician IV and Patrician Online

The Medieval trading business is going to be well catered for in the coming months, as Patrician IV (see trailer below) is out next month, and Kalypso have - in partnership with Gamigo - also just announced Patrician Online. They explain: "The browser-based game, which is planned for 2011, will be based on the well-known trading simulation series The Patrician. Thousands of players can experience…

The Grab Nebula: Pirate Galaxy Beta

Free to play MMOs are free to play, but they generally want you to spend some cash on upgrades and power ups for your little adventurer too. That's completely true of the "free" MMO beta I've been zooming around in this afternoon: Pirate Galaxy. Despite my credit card staying firmly sheathed in my wallet, this is pretty pro for a free click 'n' grind, and…
