August is here already. This month is really the calm before the MMO storm of September. There is plenty to look forward to though.
- Hearts of Iron 3 storms the front on September 7th. If you like World War 2 grand strategy games, this will be for you.
- World of Warcraft Patch 3.2 is likely due out this month as well. A new raid, battleground, PvP experience and more are apart of the patch.
- Champions Online's open beta will start on August 17th. The NDA will be down then too, so expect plenty of chatter.
- Warhammer Online will be having a live event, the Wild Hunt, starting on August 31st. Also, I wouldn't be surprised to see the huge bug patch, 1.3.1, be released soon too.
- Star Wars Galaxies will be releasing a new Cybernetics system along with many new craftable droids.
- Blizzard will be holding BlizzCon on August 21st. The expected big news is WoW's next expansion.
- Crimecraft is due to launch on August 25th.
- Aion is having some more beta events too.
