MMO Week in Review: Hurtling toward LOTRO’s Mordor (July 16, 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!

Lord of the Rings Online startled everyone this week by smacking a release date on its Mordor expansion, and it’s surprisingly soon: July 31st. Maybe. “In the event of delay, you will receive the Mordor expansion content and items no later than August 31st, 2017,” preorder players are told. Of course, if you are thinking of preordering, maybe check out our editorial on the community’s reaction to the price and what’s in the virtual box before doing so.

Meanwhile, Guild Wars 2 announced its season 3 finale, EVE Online killed the last remnants of walking in stations, and we got a last-minute heads-up on new “massive” online RPG Citadel: Forged With Fire.

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