The MMO industry moves along at the speed of information, and sometimes we’re deluged with so much news here at Massively Overpowered that some of it gets backlogged. That’s why there’s The MOP Up: a weekly compilation of smaller MMO stories and videos that you won’t want to miss. Seen any good MMO news? Hit us up through our tips line!

This week Bruce Wayne (AKA Batman) threw a special gala in DC Universe Online. We’ve got that plus stories and videos from DestinyMarvel HeroesElder Scrolls Online, and more, all waiting for you after the break!

New Games and Testing

Patches

  • Elder Scrolls Online: Only ESO could release a 3.9 GB patch and call it “incremental,” but that’s what this is. The patch addressed a few dungeon issues and made fixes to other various systems in the game.
  • Marvel Heroes: A “Modern Soldier” Captain America costume is now in the game. The costume reimagines this iconic hero as a contemporary trooper who suffered from memory loss.
  • Destiny: Private matches have arrived on both console versions: “The private match feature gives Destiny players the keys to the Crucible with the ability to challenge friends and foes alike in 18 competitive modes on almost 30 maps.” [Source: press release] Also, Destiny is considering bringing back old raids in the new expansion!
  • DC Universe Online: Episode 26 is now available with a two-person duo in Wayne Tower Gala and an eight-person raid at Kandor Central Tower. “Open up the bubbly and get ready to mingle with some of Gotham’s finest. Rumor has it something sinister is going to go down.”
  • Vainglory: This MOBA has a lot in the works for the fall, starting with its 1.22 patch, which should make playing on a smartphone a lot better.
  • Hearthstone: The team added in the new one-time-purchase welcome bundle and addressed some bugs in the game.

Events

  • Allods Online: Mages are getting their day in the sun with the Librarium festival. This is currently running through September 20th.
  • EVE Online: EVE Vegas 2016 is coming in late October, so if you’re planning to attend, you’ll need to get all the info on this community convention.
