By Shannon Doyle (Leliah), OnRPG
WoW Releases Another $25 Mount
A new $25 mount is now available in World of Warcraft. Though the first one created quite a stir it still sold well enough for another to be made. The Swift Windsteed is able to fly, matches your fastest mount’s speed and walks on a cloud.
Marvel Heroes Announces Pre Order Packs
Though there isn’t a release date yet Marvel Heroes has announced 24 different options for the pre order of the free to play game. They range from $19.99 to $200 and fall into three different types. The Starter Packs come with one hero, two costumes, in game currency, and a two day headstart. There are 16 choices. There are 7 premium packs which have four heroes, more in game currency, and four days early access. And then there is the big one, the Ultimate Pack. For $200 you can get all the heroes, all the costumes, $50 extra in game currency, a full week of early access, four exclusive costumes, and a perminant 5% XP and item find boost.
SMITE Reveals Hercules and Releases New Balance Changes
A new five minute long video reveals the newest god, or I should say demi god in SMITE, Hercules, The Champion of Rome. It starts by going through Hercules’ history before moving on to the character’s abilities and how it looks in combat. You can check it out for yourself below. You can check out the full patch notes at Hirez’s official site.
