MMO Week in Review: On the eve of Conan Exiles (January 29, 2017)

Were you too busy gaming this week to pay attention to MMO news? Get caught up every Sunday evening with Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review!

This week, Funcom has been revving up for the early access launch of Conan Exiles, a long-awaited new entry into the multiplayer survival sandbox genre. Day-one players will be paying a base price of $29.99, on up to $59.99 for the CE. See you Tuesday!

Meanwhile, Asheron’s Call franchise fans have been steeling themselves for the sunset of one of the oldest games in the genre, or they would be if they weren’t dealing with DDOS attacks from e-thugs. Assuming Turbine gets the games back up on Monday, you can count on us to report from inside as the clock ticks down.

Read on for the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions.
