WoW Shadows of Argus release – Aug 29 (tomorrow)

Absolver Launches

Launch trailer – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0eypGqZtEQ

Combat description – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUk21YyjlAs

  • ‘online melee action experience’
  • Absolver is a blend of an intense, customizable fighting game set within a beautiful yet modest online world.
  • Players make the journey from lowly Prospect to vaunted Absolver by training through combat, finding and defeating specific characters in the world, and reaching the top of the Tower of Adal.
  • Once they achieve Absolution they are free to roam the land engaging in combat, becoming a mentor to those that wish to learn from them, and entering into more traditional 1v1 matches.
  • It is important to note that Absolver is not an online RPG or an MMO, the scale is relatively small compared to well known games in those genres and the online interactions are much more focused and personal without the large scale server populations one might expect from an MMO.

 

Guild Wars 2

Class week & follow up

 

Guild Wars 2 Turns 5 (for next week – looks like celebration will be at/around pax)

Wildstar: Homecoming

    • Similar yet different to guilds
    • Much like Circles currently in Wildstar
    • Only belong to one community at a time, does not need to be the same as your guild
    • Pulls in your personal housing space, so it may no longer available on its own.
