Riot preparing new Champions, LEONA

Greetings Summoners!

After couple of Champions joined, I think RIOT has not run out of ammunition for their Champions roster in League of Legends game. They wanted to give you a glimmer of insight into the mechanics of our newest champion, Leona, the Radiant Dawn. Which is, a bit special, because she’s their answer to a pretty popular fan request; a female tank!

I think a good place to start is to answer “what exactly does ‘tank’ mean to us at Riot?”

Zu Online preparing new content

Expansions are no fun with just one or two new features, which is why Zu Online is bringing a dozen of them to bear with its new update. On December 27th, this martial arts MMO is planning to launch The Blood Demon's Assault, and Zu Online players will have their hands full.

The Blood Demon is a big bad who was slain in battle but lives on as a malevolent spirit. In an attempt to return and rule over the three worlds of the game (physical, celestial and ghostdom), the Blood Demon has ordered his troops to conquer the vital Hexad Region. Fortunately, the good guys got wise to his plan and are marshaling their own armies to forestall his return.

Blood Demon's Assault includes new instances and systems for players to master, although IGG has even more planned than the company is telling. The update has been in testing for months now and should prove to be a nice belated Christmas gift for the community.

TERA will be open beta on Jan 2011

Online game publisher based in Korea, NHN, has recently announced that its highly-anticipated blockbuster on GStar a while ago, TERA, will be open its beta test on 11th January 2011. TERA, which has been topping the anticipated games chart during the second half of 2010, will finally show its real look. NHN launched a short-term stress test after G-Star 2010, and received favorable feedback.

Particularly, TERA's dazzling skills, highly free UI System and improved game content were all highly regarded in this test. In its debut, TERA has become a focus, aiming to bring players brand new action experiences. However, from existing info, except high quality graphics and high action fluency. In the later period, TERA needs to unveil more content to make it more attractive. Meanwhile, aside from guaranteeing excellent graphics, the game should be optimized by reducing the system requirements.

Additionally, TERA will hold a "pre-selection" event from Dec. 30th to Jan. 9th prior to its open beta. In the event, players will be able to choose their target servers for the upcoming open beta, create characters, add friends and set up guilds etc.

TERA is going to employ the subscription business model.
