MMO Week in Review: Merrily migrating to Morrowind (February 5, 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, you guys. Not only did Asheron’s Call and its sequel sunset, but Guild Wars 2 announced its next living story episode, Conan Exiles launched into early access, and The Elder Scrolls Online revealed that OMG we’re going to Morrowind in its June chapter! Any one of these might have commanded a whole Week in Review, but clearly this was a special week.

Here at home, we’ve been busy with our brand-new comment system (which is working but not done yet) — if you need help, make sure to check out the FAQ!

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