WGN #18: Pod racers and a gnomelike race

posted 10 Jul 2012, 11:29 by Wipus Frequentus
And it's time again for a new episode of the WGN. Today we have news for you about SWTOR, D3, GW2 and Blacklight.


Star Wars: The Old Republic had another small patch today.  The two most obvious additions in this patch are the free trial to level 15 and the refer a friend mount. As of today people can play the game for free till l15, so if you still have a friend that wants to give it a go (and join our guild of course) why not send him an invite. They will be able to play on the characters starting world and may also have the opportunity to go to the faction's capital world. Pvp and Flashpoints are also possible.  If your friend decides to subscribe you can earn even earn an nice pod-racer like mount. The refer-a-friend reward has the usual pre-requisites such as having the friend buy the game and subscribing for a minimum of one month game time.


Tomorrow Diablo 3 will get it's underwhelming patch 1.0.3b. Only a couple of bugs will be fixed. The developers seem to be focussing mainly on patch 1.0.4, the balancing patch. We can only hope it comes soon.


It was only yesterday that ArenaNet announced that the Sylvari and Asura will be playable during the next beta weekend. They also released some gameplay footage of the Asura race. GameSpot and ArenaNet show off the diminutive race in a 1 hour and 17 minutes long youtube video.


Blacklight had a small patch as well. In this Reddit thread you can find the details. The patch contains some bug fixes, UI enhancements (easier ignore for one) and also has some balance changes. The balance changes consist of some nerfs to a couple of weapons.
