MMO Co-Opportunities Volume XXI: PAX East Round-up

A round-up of our impressions/previews of MMOs from PAX East 2012

This year at PAX East, the showfloor was bursting with MMOs, Free-to-Play (F2P) games, and F2P MMOs. We went hands-on with some and were shown the demo for others. If you missed our impressions of these games before, sit back and relax while I round them up for you and break them down.

Raiderz Hands-On Impressions: I'd heard pretty much nothing about this game before PAX East. After spending some hands-on time with it, I can assure you that it looks gorgeous and may be a perfect game for Monster Hunter fans who'd like to hunt monsters in an MMO atmosphere.

Model: Free-to-play
Status: Moving towards beta
Release: Sometime later this year

Neverwinter Preview: Despite my worries about how Neverwinter would be faring after switching publishers, the game is looking absolutely amazing. It feels like a true blend between a D&D adventure and an action game. The level of polish and I saw was absolutely astounding considering the game was in its pre-alpha stages!

Model: Free-to-play
Status: Pre-alpha
Release: Sometime later this year

Firefall Hands-On Impressions: Nick went hands-on with this game (again!) at PAX East. This time he got to look at the PVE portion of the game, and found it to be a solid experience. It's more of a hybrid between MMO and shooter, but it's MMO elements make it worthy of a spot in our round-up.

Model: Free-to-play
Status: Beta
Release: Probably sometime this year
