I walked into the Voltron panel expecting the world, and the panelists delivered that and more. Beware: this article contains potential spoilers. Kinda. I need to leave some surprises for the fourth season.
When audiences last left Voltron: Legendary Defender, the show had introduced Prince Lotor, the new ruler of the evil Galra empire, and the barest of hints of his plans. Also, the downtrodden races of the universe were finally ready to rally behind the Voltron Force after the defeat of Prince Lotor’s father, Emperor Zarkon, and form the Voltron Coalition. However, the most important event of season three was the long-awaited reveal of the origin of the Voltron lions. The panelists stated the fourth season will pick right up after the end of season three and focus on the conflict between the Galra Empire and the newly-formed Voltron Coalition, but the showrunners assured the show will include plenty of character moments and humor.
Season 4’s character moments will mostly focus on the Voltron Paladins, and each will get their moment in the spotlight to grow and develop. Some of the most important character moments will come from Shiro, the previous pilot of the Black Lion, and Kieth, the current pilot of the Black Lion. According to the panelists (and the sneak peak clip), Kieth is still hesitant to lead Team Voltron and still wants Shiro to pilot the Black Lion, and even though a small part of Shiro wants to, he insists the lion made up its mind and Kieth is now its pilot and thus must lead the Voltron Force. Pidge, meanwhile, will continue her ongoing search for her brother. Her sneak peak clip demonstrates how far she’s come from season 1; not only is she a much more capable fighter, but she’s clearly been emboldened by her adventure and is more willing to search for her brother’s whereabouts alone. I honestly can’t wait to see her succeed.
While Shiro, Kieth, and Pidge seem to have some of the better moments in the upcoming season, that doesn’t mean Hunk, Lance, and Princess Allura will be left out in the dust. While we weren’t shown any clips, the panelists promised Lance will make great strides to overcome his ego problems, and Hunk will take on the role of the Voltron Coalition’s diplomat, attracting aliens through the promise of the defeat of the Galra Empire, as well as the promise of delicious food. As for Princess Allura, she might not be the best pilot in the Voltron Force, but she will improve throughout season 4. Panelists also gave the audience a sneak peak at what might be the best and funniest moment in all of season 4, if not the entirety of Voltron: Legendary Defender, and it stars none other than the unsung hero of the Voltron Force: Kaltenecker the Cow. I guarantee you will roll on the floor laughing when you see this clip.
While season 4 might focus on Team Voltron, Prince Lotor will also have his own share of moments and character growth. Audiences already know he’s built a ship capable of traversing the dimensional rift introduced in season 3, but we don’t know why. Panelists teased the ship will let him harvest quintessence energy from within the space between dimensions, but that raises the even bigger question of why he needs that much quintessence. Let’s just say panelists want to keep fans wondering, as Prince Lotor is a complex and calculating individual with layers, like an onion. Yes, according to the showrunners, “Prince Lotor is like an onion.” Let that be your new favorite meme.
Prince Lotor isn’t the only villainous player of season 4, though. Emperor Zarkon has finally awoken from the coma that kept him sidelined for all of season 3, and he might serve as an even bigger roadblock in Prince Lotor’s way than Voltron. The panelists hinted that the two villains don’t exactly see eye to eye, so we might expect them to eventually come to blows, winner takes the Gala Empire.
While that’s the end of the information from the panel, it’s enough to get me excited for the new season of Voltron: Legendary Defender. I can’t wait to see what the show has in store for audiences starting October 13th.

The 5 best MMORPG games you can play right now
Let’s travel back to 2000s. Can you remember the time when MMORPG genre popped up out of nowhere? Early genre games such as Everquest, World of Warcraft or Guild Wars were considered to be the prophets of the new age of PC gaming. MMORPGs or Massively Multiplayer Role-Playing Games have been considered the most gratifying, rewarding, immersive, and time-soaking games out there. However, as time went by, only a handful of MMORPGs managed to secure their communities and stay a little while longer.
So today we’re talking some time (and internet space), introducing the very best games of the MMORPG genre. Some of these games are old and can brag about their long history while some of them are fairly fresh inviting fans of the genre to explore seemingly unending content. Most importantly – all of these games are alive and will grant you hundreds of hours of joy.
- The Elder Scrolls Online
We begin our list with the youngest of the bunch. ZeniMax Online Studios creation, The Elder Scrolls Online is set in the magical continent of Tamriel which will be familiar to the fans of TES franchise. The game’s storyline is indirectly related to other games of the franchise; however, the game is set way far back before the events of Oblivion, or Skyrim. Currently the game has two expansions: The Morrowind and the Summerset, however, the developers have promised a third expansion The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr which is coming out on June 4, 2019.
- Final Fantasy XIV
Final Fantasy XIV is developed and published by Square Enix. First released back in 2013 the game quickly became a hit among many MMORPG genre fans across PC and PlayStation communities. It has tons of great content which is keep on coming even to this day. Recently Square Enix has announced yet another game expansion titled Shadowbringers which will bring a variety of new dungeons and include yet another playable race: the rabbit-like Viera, already known to the fans of Final Fantasy XII. The game will also increase its level cap from 70 to 80 and introduce a number of new zones to explore.
- Guild Wars 2
This ArenaNet MMORPG game certainly deserves a spotlight in our list. Guild Wars 2 is an attractive piece because of its ever-living world structure which captivates players with multiple quests, continuing storyline, and rewarding gameplay mechanics. The game is also considered among the best MMORPGs because of its freedom and versatility when it comes to personalization. You can literally create, augment, and specialize your character in such a way that it would be exceptionally unique to your preferred playstyle.
RuneScape is the oldest game on our list, however, it carries the very same explorer’s spirit within. It’s safe to assume that if you’re interested in MMORPG genre you’ve tried this game already at a certain point in time. We can still remember the wood chopping, fire making, and fishing activities which required hours upon hours of discipline, and we also remember how much joy did that provide. And it still does if you’re patient enough. That’s why it secured a spot on our list!
- World of Warcraft
No MMORPG games list would be complete without the king of the genre. It has been over 14 years since Blizzard released World of Warcraft. The game was a phenomenal success and became one of the most iconic titles of all time. World of Warcraft is even included in the video game Hall of Fame and there are plenty of reasons why. Even today the game is huge and has millions of players logging in to play it every month. Throughout its history World of Warcraft has seen 7 major game expansions with tons of great content to explore. Furthermore, Blizzard is planning to release a Classic version of the game sometime this summer which means that the king of MMORPGs can be entering its second lifecycle. If you’ve never played – we do recommend you give it a try.
While some of these games can be played for free, some will require you to purchase certain expansions (or game time). On Eneba Marketplace you’ll find everything you need in order to start your new MMORPG adventure!
