Its all Bill’s Fault! CCP Reviews the worth of World of Darkness http://massively.joystiq.com/2014/04/15/ccp-reviewing-world-of-darkness-ip/
In the aftermath of World of Darkness’ cancellation and the layoffs at its Atlanta studio, CCP said that it is taking time to “review” the White Wolf IP.
“We believe that the World of Darkness IP is very valuable and will be reviewing the status of it in the coming weeks and months, but we have no specific plans under consideration at this time,”
The studio lodged a loss of $21 million for the year despite increasing revenue year-over-year. This was mostly due to a “massively increased R&D budget” that was feeding into projects such as WoD.
Archlord 2 Closed Beta Pre-Register http://archlord2.webzen.com/events/PreRegister
“Archlord 2 is a medieval fantasy-based MMORPG that takes place in the mysterious and dangerous world of Chantra,” Webzen explains. “Players will join in a never-ending conflict between the two opposing factions of the Azuni and the Crunn. They will be able to satisfy their thirst for power by participating in enormous PvP battles holding up to 400 players and fighting to claim the ultimate prize and to become the Archlord — the world’s supreme ruler.”
Registration does not guarantee closed beta access, according to the company’s press release. You’ll be entered into a key lottery. The closed beta is currently scheduled to begin in June.
Archage – Class Crafting
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeSnnsOzyhU (long video, but worth watching if you have the time).
Your Class is composed of three Skillsets chosen out of a possible ten. There are no restrictions on which Skillsets can be paired with each other, resulting in 120 uniquely-named Class combinations of varying functionality (and efficacy). Want some bard skills alongside your dual-wield melee and your archery? There’s a name for that: Bloodskald.
Skillsets retain their individual level even when “unequipped,” allowing you to level multiple trees to max if you’d like. Skillsets you’ve never used will stay at level ten, regardless of your character’s main level – it’s typically easier to slot one lower-level skill with two higher ones when leveling up additional trees.
