Twilight jokes aside, vampire MMOs are among us. Free-to-play Dark Eden and Reign of Blood are already out. IGG's Moonlight Online is due later this year and Spacetime Studios, developer of 3D action MMORPG iPhone app Pocket Legends, has Empire of Night in the works. And earlier this year, ohai Studios debuted their free-to-play vampire MMO, City of Eternals, both on their own site and on Facebook.
City of Eternals is the only MMORPG on Facebook that is really like an MMORPG. Quests, factions, crafting, equipment that needs regular upgrading and other recognizable features are there. But more than that is the fact that the game places you in the same virtual space with other players. This isn't a trading card game with a chat interface or a single player RPG that allows you to use your Facebook friends to accomplish tasks in-game whether or not they are online. In CoE you actually run past other players. For that, the game gets points. Unfortunately, many of the game systems are confusing and the quest flow is a mess. Read on for more first impressions!
