Justice is NetEase’s next-generation martial arts MMORPG. The game has been in development for 4 years but still remains in early stage. Today the developer team announced that the first closed beta test will be available in China in July.

In the closed beta test, players will have access to 7 playable classes and the complete storyline before lvl60. What’s more, players can manage their own business in cities. There is no safe zone in the game, so players can enjoy PVP at anytime and anyplace. Unlike the traditional NPCs in most MMORPG, players can expect in-depth interaction with them. For example, you can date with the beautiful NPC in game.
Stay tuned for more updates.
Snail Games' zombie survival MMO Moonlights may be a zombie MMO you can wait for. The game claims to have different survival experience compared with current titles like H1Z1. "Moonlights is more realistic than H1Z1," Snail Games said.
According to 17173.com, Moonlights has a wide variety of buildings, and it has faster and agiler zombies compared with H1Z1. Snail Games referred to Holywood film I Am Legend's fast mutants when they described the zombies in Moonlights. What's more, zombies in Moonlights can "group up" and flood to players' base and shelter at night. "During the daytime zombies hide indoor because they are afraid of light, and that's good opportunity for players to go out and scavenge or fortify the base."
Moonlights is expected to start open beta in the second half of 2017.
Snail Games has been pretty busy lately, as they are now workin gon Dark and Light, Age of Wushu 2, Moonlights, and Dark and Light Mobile. Recently the Chinese developer released a trailer showing the actual game footage. The mobile version is powered by a different engine, so tell us do you prefer the mobile version or the PC version's graphics?
Below are screenshots and concept art of the cities and the elf race. Elf will be played as a hybrid of supporter and magic DPS in the game. You can learn more at a previous article.
Soon the snow will start melting and the rivers will begin to run swiftly again. Have you noticed that spring is quietly approaching? League of Angels II’s very first Lunar Festival will be held from Jan. 27th to Jan. 31st and a brand new suit Phoenix will awaken the hibernating earth and bring best wishes and good luck to everyone!
Phoenix was inspired by the festival garments of the Lunar New Year. This suit is beautifully designed in red and gold, with gorgeous fan-shaped wings in the back and a special ornament that symbolizes best wishes and good luck in the front.
Phoenix is a legendary suit that includes an Outfit and Wings. Collect 1 part to activate 1 skill, and collect 2 to activate both skills.

Revelation Online takes players to the lands of Nuanor, a relatively wide open world where dark forces and adventures abound. The whole is in a very typical medieval Chinese fantasy setting, with many touches that plunge players entirely into phantasmagoria, notably with the many different NPC races that populate the game universe. The Falmaris, beings that resemble both humans and amphibians, the Hyphaeans, basically speaking mushrooms, or even the Ursids, large ursine protectors of the forests. And they are everywhere. I don’t think it would be too farfetched to say that the number of NPCs in the game surpasses the number of enemies.
Note, that the game is quite far from a realistic style, many zones dripping with kawaititude, sets of colors, reflections and somewhat large assets for female characters. Lovers of screenshots, you will find your happiness for sure.
And as in most other MMORPGs, everything starts with the character creation. Here 6 "races" (or morphologies) are available. Players then find a fairly simple, but effective, interface to create the character of their dreams. A number of various settings are available, to alter size, thickness, color etc. One downside however, at least for one portion of the MMORPG community, is that the default settings are oriented to "anime" type characters. It is then necessary to take the tool in hand, playing around with it for a bit to finally get out of this stereotype and create the character that suits you.
I personally opted to have my character look like Gintoki from the Gintama anime.
As for the classes, the first thing I personally appreciate is the great return of the holy trinity (Tank, DPS, Healer) and it does good, because it is a point that I particularly like. You will find a fairly traditional roster: The Vanguard, main tank armed with his sword and shield. The Blademaster, sort of an off tank that can dual wield swords or use two-handed weapons to deal areas of damage. As for mage DPS classes, we have the Occultist, a hybrid damage/heals class that manages two types of magic, and the Swordmage, a ranged magician who mastered the elements. The Gunslinger is the ranged physical DPS class, excelling in single target damage with its pistols and rifle, while also being able to manage groups of enemies with summons and traps. Finally the main healer of the game is the Spiritshaper, primarily here to care for its allies, in addition to being able to summon various creatures that will help in battle.
Textures are not very advanced, especially if you stick your nose to the backgrounds. On the bright side, we can say that this makes Revelation a light game, accessible to a lot more PC builds than other “recent” MMORPGs. But still, you can’t fault it. Beyond the textures, the world is well worked and teeming with details. The landscapes are very consistent and above all varied. It is for this reason that after a few minutes of play, one marvels nevertheless. Like an ocean of ice under a starry sky, that reflects the world as a mirror; It sells the dream.
As for the soundtrack, I fully subscribe to the work of Neal Acree, who has worked on World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Starcraft II and Diablo III, among others.
The main quests, meant to introduce the various features of the game, lead players to discover the different races that populate Nuanor and to take part in various internal conflicts. Classic, but still coherent, the plot has players traverse lands that are all different from one another, from the underwater world to the snow-capped mountains. These transitions can however be relatively brutal. You will have to prepare for everything in your travel suitcase.
From the first moments in the game, players learn, via a small quest, that they can fly without limits in Revelation Online. Unfortunately, this pleasure is abruptly withdrawn from us as we are forced to wait for the level 29 to obtain our first permanent pair of wings. Freedom ! Flying is fun, fluid, with various commands, and above all without time limitations other MMORPGs have, which is extremely pleasant. The wings are therefore an integral part of the landscape, one crosses absolutely everywhere, as this means of movement is quite practical. The game also has its own combat skills dedicated to flight, adding a new dimension to its combat system.
The combat has especially marked me in the dungeons, which, with their various levels of difficulty, offer good group challenges. A proper strategy as well as a good cohesion between the group will be required in most cases, especially since you don't want your allies to end up in the skill indicators of bosses because of you. Your party may not be too understanding about you running all over the place with the aggro and getting your healer killed.
While still in Closed Beta, Revelation Online announces itself as a title that will pleasant hours of play. Without introducing anything innovative, it brings together a good number of systems which have proved themselves on other MMORPGs, all this, in a fluid and pleasant way.
As we reported before, Resident Evil 7 will have an optional VR mode for those who are playing the PlayStation Version. However, you may feel it’s too immersive while playing the VR mode since the screen are filled with cheap jump scares or in-your-face monsters.
Dizziness may be the biggest problem for all VR games. Resident Evil 7 is not an exception. To play the VR mode, players need to stand still in real life while moving in the game, which is a disorienting process. What’s more, the specific visuals in VR mode is a bit like viewing a late-night cable TV B movie on an old tube. So you may not be able to check out the picture you picked up clearly for the added darkness.
Despite uncomfortable visual in VR mode, the control is pretty easy. The very slow pace of the initial game probably helps with that, as does the slow walking speed of your character and the horizontal turning that's restricted to 30-degree jumps by default (you can change that, but smoother rotation can lead to motion sickness in VR).
Luckily, players can switch on/off VR mode freely and it doesn’t require a separate playthrough or even restarting the game. If you wanna test the VR mode, exploratory sections would be an ideal option.
In addition, it adds a new harbor that connects to the new territory. Furthermore, the Margoria expansion features ship construction, around 100 new quests, and guild-vs-guild naval combat, etc.
Good Luck and Great Fortune Await
Starting today, our customary Loot Boxes have been replaced with our lucky Lunar Loot Boxes—and they’re packed with one heck of a (primal) punch, including new skins like Palanquin D.Va and Wukong Winston!
As with previous events, Lunar Loot Boxes can be earned or purchased, and each will contain at least one item from our Year of the Rooster collection—including player icons, sprays, victory poses, emotes, highlight intros, skins, and more. While the contents of each seasonal Loot Box are random, you can unlock a variety of these customization options in the Hero Gallery for credits throughout the event’s duration.
You can see all lunar new year skins at this separated post.
Capture the Rooster
No event would be complete without a first-class brawl, and for the Year of the Rooster we took a cue from tradition and are introducing an Overwatch take on a true competitive gaming staple: Capture the Flag.
In Capture the Rooster, teams will face off on Lijiang Tower, attempting to secure the enemy flag while the opposing team does the same. In this fast-paced brawl, players will need to get creative with their team compositions as they attempt to construct a lineup that’s built for offensive speed and defensive stability.

One day, on Lunar New Year, Dr. Harold Winston, the lunar colony researcher who cared deeply for the young ape's education and training, challenged him to read an epic story that was centuries old but beloved by billions. Journey to the West is a sweeping tale that soars between a mythological Earth and the glorious heavens, portraying demons, gods, and heroes clashing in mighty battles.
The gorilla's imagination was captured by the heroic monk Tang Sanzang and his ragtag group of disciples' quest for redemption… like the banished marshal Zhu Bajie, the old general Shā Wùjìng, and of course, the mischievous Monkey King, Sun Wukong.
Every Lunar New Year, Winston is reminded of his younger days. Growing up in the lunar colony had its trials, but it also had its treasures. Exploring this story with his mentor will always be one of his most cherished memories.

Dark and Light developer Snail Games has revealed in a new blog how to build a fortress with magical fortifications. As a sandbox RPG, Dark and Light gives players the freedom to construct their home base virtually anywhere they want in the world. Players are restricted from building in a few key locations, such as within existing cities or dungeons, but aside from that, they can pick a spot and start building!
Adventurers who don't like the idea of constructing a home in the untamed wilderness can purchase housing in their starting city, but the cities themselves aren’t completely impenetrable. City-dwelling players can help defend their home from foreign invaders by constructing unique magical fortifications. Each of the cities - Vardo, Zaharul, and Estel, all have their own unique architectural style which players can study and emulate when constructing their own base.
