Amazon has offered an early look at its upcoming video game, New World, one of three PC Games companies will announce in 2016. New World is a massive multiplayer online role-playing game, in the style of World of Warcraft and final Fantasy XIV. Players will adventure through a supernatural island called Aeterneum, clearing out dangerous beasts and monsters and gradually building homes and settlements. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Amazon show off New World, its new massively multiplayer online video Game, with a cinematic trailer during the 2019 Game Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday night. Amazon's in-house development studio, Amazon Games, has been working on New World for more than three years, and it will be young studio's first major release when it launches in May 2020. New World is an open-World adventure game set in the 17 century's age of Exploration. Players will explore an uncharted fictional island called Aeternum that's home to savage wildlife, mythical creatures, and fellow settlers. Dark magic flows beneath the soil of Aeterneum, haunting the wilderness and possessing the island's inhabitants over time. Players can work together to discover Aeternum's secrets and expand their colonial settlements on the island. Up to 100 players can fight side by side to defend their settlements against the island's supernatural forces, or other invading players. Earlier this year, Amazon offered a short preview of the new World to members of the press. Unlike traditional online role-playing games like World of Warcraft, Amazon's new world will have more action-orient combat. Learning how to wield weapons and position yourself on the battlefield will be just as important as improving your character's statistics. Characters won't be stuck in specific classes either, so every player will have access to the same types of skills and equipment as they progress through the game. Over time, players will work to establish personal home on Aeternum and fortify existing settlements. The game will include a detailed crafting system that lets players construct all sorts of new items and upgrades, with no limit on how much players can increase their crafting skills. New World is ultimately a game about survival and exploration, and Amazon wants players to feel immersed in the World of Aeternum. Just like popular MMOs like World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XIV, players will be able to spend hundreds of hours adventuring through new world. We want our players to feel the depth and danger of 'New World' from the moment they step onto the shores of Aeternum in May 2020, Christoph Hartmann, vice president of Amazon Games, said in a statement. Our team has been working tirelessly to create a deep, immersive world that delivers challenges and surprises at every turn, and we're so excited to reveal a bit more of it today. Amazon Games is based in Orange County, California, and employs industry veterans with past experience building massively multiplayer online Games like Destiny, World of Warcraft, and Everquest. Preorders for New World are available now for 40, or 50 for the deluxe edition.

Guild Wars 2

The Market For Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games would seem saturate with the ever looming presence of World of Warcraft, along with the abundance of free-to-Play titles, but that didnt stop ArenaNet from releasing Guild Wars 2 last month. Now, few weeks after the Games launch, ArenaNet has announced that sales for games have crossed the two million units mark. In the announcement, President and Co-founder of ArenaNet, Mike OBrien, said reactions from around the world justified the time and care we put into developing Guild Wars 2 and making it into the game it is today. And this is only the beginning. They were continually fine-tuning the game to deliver the polished experience that our players expect, and were already working on new adventures and experiences to introduce into this truly Dynamic Online World. The game was launched on August 28, but pre-purchasers were given a three-day headstart. During headstart, game had, at one point, more than 400 000 concurrent players. Whether it is because of the vast and dynamic world that changes based on player actions, engaging, customisable personal storyline, or visceral, highly-mobile action, it is clear that online gamers are eager for Guild Wars 2. One of biggest features of Guild Wars 2 is that, unlike other major MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft, former has no monthly subscription fee. The game follows the one-time payment model that you usually get from other games. Another great feature is the inclusion of personal story for your character, where your character goes through a story that is moulded by choices you make for character during creation of character and other quests. The game also aims for a more dynamic combat system than what players are use to from the likes of World of Warcraft, Everquest or Star Wars: Old Republic, with Mechanics such as spells which have to be aimed properly instead of being target abilities and the ability to dodge attacks. Guild Wars 2 is the biggest competition that the current king of MMORPG World, World of Warcraft, will have to face. World of Warcraft is all set to get its latest expansion pack this year, title Mists of Pandaria. The highly anticipated expansion pack is set to be released on September 25. Once the expansion pack is out, players belonging to both Alliance and Horde will be able to visit and explore the long-lose continent of Pandaria and see mystery continent hides. CEO and Co-founder of Blizzard Mike Morhaime say, Mists of Pandaria contains the biggest variety of new content weve ever created for World of Warcraft expansion, with features that will appeal to new players, veterans, and everyone in between. Weve received a lot of great feedback from players during our most extensive beta test yet, and we hope they enjoy exploring everything Pandaria has to offer when expansion comes out in September.

Common Features Edit

Since interactions between MMORPG players are real, even if environments are virtual, psychologists and sociologists are able to use MMORPGs as tools for academic research. Sherry Turkle, clinical psychologist, has conducted interviews with computer users including game-players. Turkle found that many people have expanded their emotional range by exploring many different roles that MMORPGs allow people to explore. Nick Yee has surveyed more than 35 000 MMORPG players over the past several years, focusing on psychological and sociological aspects of these games. Recent findings include that 15 % of players become Guild-leader at one time or another, but most generally find job tough and thankless; and that players spend a considerable amount of time doing things that are external to gameplay but part of the metagame. Many players report that the emotions they feel while playing MMORPG are very strong, to the extent that 8. 7 % of males and 23. 2 % of female players in Statistical study have had online wedding. Other researchers have found that enjoyment of games is directly related to social organization of game, ranging from brief encounters between players to highly organized play in structured groups. In study by Zaheer Hussain, BSc., MSc. And Mark D. Griffiths, ph. D, it was found that just over one in five gamers say they prefer socializing online to offline.$MERGE_SPACE $MERGE_SPACE Significantly more male gamers than female gamers say that they find it easier to converse online than offline. $MERGE_SPACE It was also found that 57 % of gamers had created character of the opposite gender, and it is suggested that online female persona has a number of positive social attributes. Richard Bartle classified Multiplayer RPG-players into four primary psychological groups. His classifications were then expanded upon by Erwin Andreasen, WHO developed the concept into the thirty-question Bartle Test that helps players determine which category they are associated with. With over 200 000 Test responses As of 2006, this is perhaps the largest ongoing survey of Multiplayer game players. In World of Warcraft, temporary programming glitch attracted the attention of psychologists and epidemiologists across North America, when corrupt blood ability of monster began to spread unintentionally-and uncontrollably-into wider Game World. The Center for Disease Control uses incident as a research model to chart both the progression of disease, and potential human response to large-Scale epidemic infection. Many MMORPGs feature living economies. Virtual items and currency have to be gained through play and have definite value for players. Such virtual economies can be analyzed and have value in economic research; More significantly, these virtual economies can have an impact on the economies of the real world. One of the early researchers of MMORPGs was Edward Castronova, WHO demonstrated that the supply-and-demand market existed for virtual items and that it crossed over into the real world. This crossover has some requirements for the game: * ability for players to sell items to each other for in-Game currency.

History Edit

The earliest online multiplayer games were Call Multi-User Dungeons, or MUDs: Text-base or simple graphic adventures that began cropping up in the late 1970s. Most games lack graphics and thus depend heavily on textual descriptions and players' imaginations to illustrate characters and environments; Players type in a pre-defined range of actions like n for move north, or attack to fight as they travel through virtual rooms and complete tasks. Among first and best-known of these games was written by Roy Trubshaw in programming language Call MACRO-10. The game, simply Call MUD and later licensed to Internet provider CompuServe under the name British Legends, was written on DEC PDP-10 Computer instal at Essex University in the UK in fall 1978, according to Richard Bartle, who later revised it and assumed the title of co-creator. MUD was originally little more than a series of inter-connect locations where you could move and chat, say Bartle. In later revisions, version three was written in a more memory-efficient language, BCPL, between 1979 and 1980. It assumed a more complex environment, and Bartle and his colleagues were able to invite more outsiders to play after Essex hooked up its network to ARPANET, precusor of the modern-day Internet. Maze War, which was released four years prior to MUD and also ran on ARPANET, was another early online multiplayer game, but as a first-person shooter, it doesn't technically qualify as an RPG. The game is, however, credited with popularizing first-person 3D perspective, which was copied by many early RPGs and has since become standard view for many MMORPGs. Maze War was also one of the earliest online games to use graphics and introduce avatars, ie representational images for characters. Other early popular MUDs include Colossal Cave Adventure, Text-base game released in 1976; and Island of Kesmai, graphical, six-player game based on D & D that was built at the University of Virginia in 1980. Others, including Oubliette, Avatar and Moira, run on the PLATO network. Moira could support up to 15 players in the same game simultaneously. The issue, as this Yahoo article points out, is that these games weren't yet massive. Graphic ones especially could also be expensive to play: Island of Kesmai, which was one of the first commercial games and profile in 1988 episode of Computer Chronicles, cost 12 per hour to play through CompuServe. Text-base games were thus more popular because they require less bandwidth and could run on basic personal computers.

Trends

Guild Wars 2 has been on the Market for a respectable 8 years. Its recipe for success lies in its tendency to buck traditional MMORPG trends in favor of newer, fresher ideas. Starting with combat, Guild Wars 2 scraps the slower, slightly more static target-base systems of games like WoW and replaces them with a much more action-orient alternative. You can dodge roll out of danger, use your weapon-specific abilities to zip around the battlefield, or simply crash into the ground with devastating area-of-Effect attacks. Mounts are another area where Guild War 2 innovates. Unlike other MMOs, which mostly use mounts for basic ground or flying speed boosts, this game's rideable companions are all mighty in their own ways. The raptor is fast on its feet and possesses upgradeable leap ability that can help you cross massive chasms. Griffon, on the other hand, can glide and employ a mixture of diving and soaring techniques to cross long, horizontal distances. Skimmer lets you dive underwater and swim faster than usual, and Springer can leap high into the air. And then there's slightly-newer Roller Beetle-one of my personal favorites-which can tuck itself into a ball and help you careen across land at breakneck speeds. If that's not enough for you, Guild Wars 2 also does away with normal MMO progression. Instead of grinding out repetitive kill or fetching quests for experience, you travel to different dynamic world events, which might task you with defending objective, escorting caravan, playing whack-amole with annoying farm vermin, or infiltrating enemy camps in disguise. When you decide you want something a bit more linear, Guild Wars 2's main story is nothing to sneeze at-it is lengthy, varied, and at times surprisingly emotional. If any of this sounds like your cup of tea, feel free to give Guild Wars 2 shot now. Like LOTRO, it's free-to-play, so there's minimal risk involved on your part.

Following the announcement that Nexon Thailand is shutting down the local Thai language Server of MapleStory, Southeast Asia subsidiary of Korean gaming giant Nexon follow up with a road-map of its 2020 titles.

ArcheAge

ArcheAge can be a very traditional MMO, with quests, factions, and completely forgettable story. But what makes it one of the best MMORPGs is that you can ignore all of that and head into the sea. The ocean is huge. Sail from east to west in fastest ship in the game can take anywhere between 45 minutes and hour depending on dangers like storms, whirlpools, sea creatures, or pirates. There is even a legendary Kraken that dwells in the northern ocean, and it takes an entire raid of 40 + players and ten galleon-size ships, cannons blazing, to even scratch it. Deep under the ocean you can find shipwrecks filled with delicious bounty, hardest of which require diving gear to reach. ArcheAge is free to play, with premium subscription available that offer several perks, including the ability to claim your own patch of land-not instance, genuinely taking up space in the open world-on which you can build a house or even underwater aquafarm full of fish. Alternatively, there is ArcheAge Unchained, new separate version of the game that gives you access to all the perks of subscription for a one-time fee. Regardless of which version you choose, fantastical world of the ArcheAge is the perfect setting to embark upon a life of crime on open seas, where youre essentially playing pirate games and everyone else is unsuspecting sailor-but instead of parrot, youve get dragon.
