World of Tanks developer Wargaming has announced an update to its free-to-play gaming portal that may alter the way players make use of its online economy. Set to go live sometime during the open beta phase of the tank-blasting title's sister game, World of Warplanes, what's being called the Unified Premium Account should allow benefits earned in one Wargaming world to be used in any other.
Recently, Wargaming.net announced that British tanks were coming to World of Tanks, it's an exciting time to be a Brit who's into blowing things up. To celebrate, Wargaming.net gave us a peek at their planned British army tech tree, and I've speculated a little about what we can expect from the Queen's own angry houses.
Batman relies on lightning-fast reflexes to dodge a Joker bomb, not a lucky dice roll, and he certainly never auto-attacks Bane. So when I leapt onto the streets of Gotham, clad in the tights and gadget-belt of a newly minted villain named Cat’s Pajamas, to study at the feet of the Clown Prince of Crime, I wanted something other than the stodgy combat of a typical MMO. And DC Universe Online doesn’t disappoint—its fast-paced, kinetic combat and story-driven quests are a breath of fresh air in a genre short on innovation.

Tribes Universe developers Hi-Rez Studios have been talking recently about their upcoming reboot of the Tribes series. They've revealed more about what the classes in the game will be like, the role vehicles will play and the tech behind the project.
Jagex have told Eurogamer that beta testing of their new free-to-play, browser-based MMO, Transformers Unvierse, will kick off "very soon" in preparation for a full release next year. They've also dropped some new details. Read on for information about the class system, vehicle transformation and how Transformers Universe will relate to the recent cartoon series.
A new Transformers war is dawning. A new struggle between good and evil. And this time it’s a conflict that once started, can never end – or at least, not until the servers close. Jagex Games Studio are no strangers to long-running epic battles, having run the online RPG RuneScape since way back in 2001. Now they’re set to launch their second large-scale MMO. Transformers Universe describes the face-off between altruistic Autobots and sneering, pantomime villain Decepticons. It might be based on a toy property, and it might be a free-to-play browser game, but it isn’t just for kids.
It's never good when things come out of Tartarus. For those of you that slept through Greek mythology (that's a class, right?), Tartarus is a horrible, horrible place in the darkest corner of the Underworld where only the most foul and dangerous of monsters/Titans/gods/people are imprisoned and punished for eternity. If something comes out of there you can know it's going to be two things: incredibly powerful and terribly pissed off. And that's right where DC Universe Online's latest DLC pack, The Battle For Earth, starts: über-villain Braniac waltzing out of the gates of Tartarus with a new arsenal of powers to obliterate mankind with.
Today, we talk with DC Universe Online's Game Director Chris Cao about character creation, future Power Sets being added to the game and how the development team had to choose between quality and quantity in development. If you're playing DCUO as much as we are, be sure to read the earlier parts of the interview, where Chris talks with us about animation glitching and developer priorities and the planned monthly content updates (hint: Penguin's coming!), and tune in each day this week for more insight into our current favorite MMO.
Superman's finally making a scene in DCUO. It's been all about the Bat since launch: all the PvP Legends characters, all of the raids, all of the monthly content updates revolved around the Dark Knight - and now it's time the Man of Steel had his turn.
Expert artists and modelers have been creating new characters for the Mass Effect universe as part of an ongoing competition on CGHub, Kotaku report. It's not associated with Bioware, so there's little chance they'll appear in an upcoming Mass Effect game, but that's hardly dented the enthusiasm of the entrants. I'll kick off with Mosena's portrayal of Thane's too-cool-for-school grandson, locked into a wearable version of KITT from Knight Rider, except a thousand times cooler than I've made that sound, though an assassin that squabbles over morality with the AI in his armour could be an entertaining set-up for an emotionally stunted killer. See pictures of some of our favourite entries below.
The AI in Deus Ex can be can be adorably stupid at times, much like the original game. Tom actually mentioned building a box fort in his Deus Ex: Human Revolution Review and here Redditor TheExplosiveAmerican shows us how it's done. Truly he is a master of stealth.

I've always liked DC Universe Online's twist on the classic tank-healer-DPS trinity that defines most MMORPG's group roles. DCUO gives everyone access to two roles—DPS and then either tank, healer, or control (CC and power-restoration), based on their power selection—and lets them swap between them whenever they want. It's a hybrid system that lets players specialize, while limiting the usual problem of there being too few healers or tanks because most people want to be able to level and solo efficiently. As a result, the queue times in DCUO are much shorter than they are in many other MMOs. And with the Role-Optional Alerts SOE's adding in the game's next update, which use specialized buffs to make any combination of players an effective group, players should be able to form groups almost instantly.
---TRANSMISSION FROM THE FUTURE--- The year is 2053; the world is on the brink of financial and social collapse. It started innocuously enough. Star Citizen - Chris Roberts' multiplayer space sim - took to Kickstarter, making a healthy $2,000,000 from backer pledges. But the money kept pouring in through the game's website at Roberts Space Industries. By the end of April 2013, Star Citizen had raised a staggering total of $9,062,402. ---MESSAGE CONTINUES---
Hate them or hate them, Ewoks will forever remain part of the Star Wars mythology, in all parallel universes except for the Revenge of the Jedi one from BioShock Infinite. Probably. As part of update 2.3, the cuddly murderous rebels - or one in particular - are now being added to Star Wars: The Old Republic as the MMO's newest companion character. Say hello to Treek, a heavy armor user with both heal and tank stances, not to mention and an adorable wittle furry face.
World War 2 combat simulator War Thunder has come a long way since it got Steam Greenlight approval back in February. Russian developer Gaijin Entertainment has released a gorgeous new CGI trailer for the free-to-play MMO, giving us a slow-motion glance at the human side of its incredibly mechanized battlefield of planes, tanks, and naval warships.
EA have registered 15 domain names related to Command & Conquer Alliances, as spotted by Fusible. They're made up of almost anything Command & Conquer related with the word "Alliances" attached to it, including Red Alert Alliances, Tiberian Alliances, Generals Alliances. This suggests that EA are publishing a game about allying, perhaps set in the Command and Conquer universe. HMM.
There's an old Warhammer 40k joke. "What do you get when you tape a flashlight to a Lasgun? A double barrelled Lasgun." Even the Imperial Guard weapon of choice is an object of fun. They're one of the most maligned races in 40k. They're fleshy, poorly armed and poorly armoured fodder in a universe of genetic super soldiers and alien killing machines. They spent most of Dawn of War 2 and Chaos Rising dying in droves and being bailed out by the Space Marines. In Dawn of War 2: Retribution, that's all going to change. The multiplayer beta has just kicked off, and the Imperial Guard are stealing the show.
