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!
Maybe you’ll discover a new game in this space — or be reminded of an old favorite! This week we have stories and videos from Mu Ignition, Lineage 2 Revolution, Revelation Online, Earthfall, Legacy of Atlantis, DC Unchained, Soul Ark, Battle Carnival, World of Warcraft, Old School RuneScape, Aion, War Thunder, Artifact, Pokemon Go, The Black Death, Astroneer, EVE Online, Phantom Halls, MU Online, and Heroes of Newerth, all waiting for you after the break!
If you’ve had dreams of being a killer clown, the upcoming Battle Carnival was made with you in mind. Conversely, if your dream instead has been to blast a killer clown in the face, this shooter has you covered there, too. However, to do either, you’d need to be in Russia; Korean developer Zepetto is taking this new battleground to Russia and has given no word on a western or a local Korean release.
Battle Carnival currently boasts 11 different characters players can select from (including said clown) to fight in seven game modes over 26 different maps. Alpha testing is scheduled to begin next month.
If the news that you cannot partake in the killing of clowns has crushed your heart, you can reminisce on what might have been and try to find solace in the antics of the various characters in the two official trailers below.
