Did you know that Black Desert features a heat stroke DoT? Apparently it does, as Steparu had to chug a few health potions while exploring one of the fantasy sandbox’s vast desert environments.
He’s uploaded a video of his exploits, so click past the cut if you’d like to see Black Desert’s.… desert, as well as another, shorter video that focuses on Witch gameplay.
Do you want an easier way to stream Heroes of the Storm from the Battle.net client? Possibly in anticipation of the new skins and mounts that are in development? Good news; integration between the Battle.net client and Twitch has been announced, allowing players to hook up from the launcher and stream the game more easily than ever. You can also get a special portrait whilst viewing the championships with a linked account, so if you’re big on the competitive scene, there’s every reason in the world to link accounts.
Overwatch fans also have a bit to cheer about, albeit not for streaming purposes just yet: A new pair of “heroes” have been revealed, if you want to call a pair of filthy criminals “heroes.” You can check out a trailer for Junkrat and Roadhog down below, along with a gander at all of those new HotS looks in development.
With the new expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic
hitting the live servers in a little less than a month, our streamers Larry Everett
and MJ Guthrie
got this crazy idea to stream a complete class-story playthrough before Knights of the Fallen Empire
launches. That’s over 12 hours of content!
But of course, they couldn’t just play through everything without adding an extra twist, although the witty banter and singing will be quite entertaining. Larry and MJ have decided that you, the chatroom, will decide key conversational choices live as they are streaming.
MJ and Larry will cover the first two planets today, and then periodically over the next month, they’ll hit all the key moments of the Imperial Agent class story, rounding it all off on the first day of KotFE early access, October 20th.
Tune live at 9:00 p.m. as OPTV‘s infamous Stream Team brings you the first day of 12 days of TOR!

Enjoy the show!
Steparu’s still playing through Bless‘ final Korean beta test. He outlines the game’s playable classes or jobs (Guardian, Berserker, Paladin, Ranger, Assassin, and Mage, with Warlock and Mystic slated for later). He also notes that some jobs are restricted based on your faction choice.
The skill system “isn’t overly complicated,” Steparu writes, noting that it’s pretty hard to mess up a build. You can also change your skill loadout, even inside of dungeon instances. As per usual he includes a few gameplay videos, so click past the cut if you’d like to see how Bless is shaping up in Korea at the moment.
Last week Funcom teased the upcoming hoverboard mount in The Secret World. That was just a 9-second clip, though. Today, the firm has posted a 24-second video on YouTube that offers a clearer look at the Orochi Group’s “hovertech stealth-board.”
The clip shows a player putting the board through its paces at Kingsmouth’s skate park, as well as a brief glimpse of “veil mode” which apparently cloaks the player but leaves the board visible. Hey, whatever, it’s a hoverboard, right? Click past the cut to see for yourself.
Last Friday, Bossa Studios teased a trailer for its new Worlds Adrift trailer. Today, we got a look at the real deal, which turns out to be a three-minute visual journey through a sandbox title with real-time physics for thousands of simultaneous players. Worlds Adrift is set in a “universe that was destroyed by the overmining of its precious levitating material.” All that remains of the former planetary surface are thousands of floating islands which players will need to build airships to explore.
Bossa Studios bills the title as unscripted and has thus far stuck to its open PvP guns. You can view the full clip after the break.
With three heroes now at maximum level in Marvel Heroes,
it is time for MassivelyOP’s MJ to go back to her first love: Storm. Rogue (and then Squirrel Girl) may have distracted her from finishing up the story queen with the elements, but MJ could never forget her! Who could resist raining lightning down on evil anyway? Tune in live at 2:00 p.m. as the story missions continue. (And maybe she’ll sneak a little Odin’s Bounty in with the Midtown Madness!)

You would think that a class by the name of Blade Master would be really important in Blade & Soul. It’s half of the title right there, after all! But no, the Blade Master is just another class in the game, albeit a popular and versatile one. It’s also getting a big spotlight on the official site for the game that shows off what the Blade Master can do.
Blade Masters focus on Fire and Lightning damage, dancing between two stances and providing a blend of offensive and defensive skill. In parties, the class can focus on distracting bosses whilst the rest of the party takes care of other things, and in PvP you need to balance between your stances to avoid being movement-locked. Check out the video just below and read up for more detail on combos.
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. See any good MMO news? Hit us up through our tips line!
This week, all news must go! It’s our biggest MOP Up yet, with over two dozen stories and videos from Guild Wars 2, WildStar, EverQuest II, World of Warcraft, Star Wars: The Old Republic, and more!
In a game called ARK, you’d think that some kind of sea-faring vessel would be involved. However, it wasn’t until the recent patch that non-dinosaur-powered water travel was introduced. MassivelyOP’s MJ is excited to build herself a raft as a portable home as she braves the world on water. Join us live at 12:00 p.m. for this maiden ocean voyage.

Bossa Studios has released a new trailer for sandbox-with-airships title Worlds Adrift. It’s really short, because it’s in fact a trailer for the full trailer that will be released this Monday at 10:00 a.m. EST. The teaser shows off plenty of floating islands, one of the aforementioned airships, and some grappling hook shenanigans that serve as both a mode of transport and a way to climb tall obstacles.
See for yourself after the cut!
The last time MassivelyOP’s MJ toured Landmark, she showed off a single city. But there are many more concrete jungles and impressive skyscrapers spread throughout the islands, so now she’s heading out to highlight those! Tune in live at 3:00 p.m. for a look at urban landscapes in…

Can Elder Scrolls Online take root in an eastern country such as Japan? That’s what we’re going to find out, as ESO will be launching a Japanese server in spring 2016.
The news came out of the Tokyo Game Show, where it was also announced that DMM Games will be handling the operation in the country. This will mark the game’s first foray into Asia. Could a Chinese launch be in the works as well?
We’ve got the Japanese trailer for Elder Scrolls Online after the break!
