Welcome toNot So Massively, our weekly roundup of the top news from popular multiplayer online battle arenas (MOBAs) and other multiplayer online games that arent quite MMOs. Published every Monday, the column covers Wow Gold games such as League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth, Rise of Immortals, Bloodline Champions and more.
Last week, we revealed the Realm of the Titans closed beta and heard news from the front lines of development on the Rise of Immortals open beta. We took a first look at the incredibly unlikely online game Family Guy Online, and I gave my first impressions of World of Battles: Morningstar.
In a bizarre coincidence, both League of Legends and Heroes of Newerth revealed gameplay details of theirMonkey King characters last week. League of Legends also launched its second Song of the Summoner theme song contest.
In this weeksNot So Massively, we give out beta keys for Realm of the Titans and I give my first impressions of competitive multiplayer World of Warcraft Gold game Dungeon Overlord. With LoL now boasting over 15 million registered accounts and a peak concurrency of 500,000 players, Heroes of Newerth jumped on the free-to-play bandwagon this week with a complete re-release.
