Do guns belong in fantasy MMOs? That’s a topic some people have strong views on, but there’s no doubt where the makers of Revelation Online stand, as they revealed a preview video for the gunslinger class today.

In addition to being a top-tier physical DPS class, gunslingers also have buffs and control abilities, choosing pistols for high mobility or a sniper rifle for greater damage. They can summon the razor puppet, “a fearsome attack robot,” or jump inside a suit of juggernaut armor to devastate foes with an energy cannon. Their wide variety of gadgets and weapons grants them significant versatility in combat and plenty of ways to dish out the pain.

Also, if you’re up for a chuckle, take a look at the description of the video on its YouTube page. That’s quite the impressive attempt to get search results for other MMOs to come to your channel, no?

    You guys gotta stop hyping thing up. You make people think that you have learn nothing in 2011 when the gaming industry falling apart. (Most Games shut down)
    I would stick a older MMO games that been out in the years when technology wasn’t advance but everything now has high graphic in MMO games mostly nowadays. I do miss the days when games didn’t just focus on graphic but game-play too.
    There some MMO games left in 2011 that have not shut down but still going strong today in 2016 this year.

      I was overhyped for black desert online,archeage,and now this game. But I feel dreams might be crushed a little if I do decide to try this game out.

    • Crimrose on October 24, 2016

      I need to try out those games.Thanks Cosmic.

    Let’s give this gunslinger the ability to heal stuff as well, then delete all the other classes.
    Voila, all-in-one-super-duper fun class complete. 😀
    I mean come on really?:
    1. mobile double pistol stance.
    2. high dps sniper stance.
    3. tank stance in suit.
    4. buffer too?! wtf lol.

    So yeah, all that’s left is to teach it to heal. 😀
    I know what 99.9% people going to play now.

    • Merkadis on October 22, 2016

      Oh right, i suppose we should add summoner, and controller as well on top of it all.
      Totally non-op class, 100% balanced i’m sure. xD

      They have next to no escape so that pretty much makes them bottom tier in 1v1 or 3v3 but they are strong in large scale battle where they sit behind and dish out their damage i guess

      • Merkadis on October 24, 2016

        If they can control you or just tank you in that suit do you really think they would need to escape?

        • Z on October 24, 2016

          tank suit is ultimate which requires a lot of resources to use and lasts 15 seconds…

          • Merkadis on October 26, 2016

            With the right tools that is enough to score a frag or 5.

    I got my CBT key, but I’m not harboring delusions that this game will be something amazing and never seen before. It will probably be forgotten in 6 months, kind of like BDO, B&S and ArcheAge have been.

    • Onara Gorou on October 22, 2016

      Also Closed Beta 1 Date Pushed Back to November 3rd

    • ASD on October 22, 2016

      I think it sucks how archeage got forgotten. It was one of the good MMOs in my book but it just has horrible publishers. I liked black desert online but I think they messed up the payment model in the USA and EU and I like black desert online but I’m not a fan of seeing girls chests jiggling infront of me every 5 minutes.

      • ASD on October 22, 2016

        I mean I don’t mind it if they do it in moderation but some games like tera online and so on do it every 5 minutes and those types of games are just a turn off for me.

  6. cacalips on October 22, 2016

    The game will be great. GOTY, a lot to do, so many events,. If you are a completionist, it will be nerve wracking as you can do so many things in a day. You will have to carve out your routine. The only sad thing and bad point is: Modern gamers. Attention spans, kids with school scheduals etc.. The OB will be packed, game will shine, then dwindle, and the ADD kids leave, that will leave the casual to doubt…then leave, and in the end just the dedicated and rotating crowd will keep playing. Which is fine as that is how skyforge is, and they have not shut down.

    • CLONE on October 23, 2016

      Dude its a free game. if u wanna try it out go on if u dont like it u dont have to force urself to play

  7. ASD on October 21, 2016

    I was interested in this but doubt I will get around to it now. I been losing interest in games lately almost every MMO is not fun anymore 🙁

    • -GG- TheSecondJoker on October 22, 2016

      Was it the guns or the gameplay that disappointed you? Because if it was the guns.. Then I wouldn’t quite understand why having guns in the game is bad.

    • ASD on October 22, 2016

      Nah it wasn’t the guns. I love the gameplay and the guns but I think it’s just life hitting me. I might end up taking a long needed break from games for a while and end up disappearing from MMOBOMB at somepoint.

    • ASD on October 22, 2016

      Also I’m noty really a fan about the guns but I will use it if I need to I’m mostly a swords person.

  8. KOG on October 21, 2016

    don’t bother
