The MOP Up: Ultima Online’s new home


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 we’ll visit Ultima Online’s new digs, celebrate Star Citizen’s third birthday, listen to a sample of Destiny’s new soundtrack, gorge ourselves silly on videos, and more!

New Games

Odds and Ends


It’s time for another excellent edition of the Middle-earth Lore series from Lord of the Rings Online players, this one focused on the town of Bree!

The latest update for Elsword Online contains new nasty Lanox dungeons to be conquered. Take a look:

Return of Reckoning, the unsanctioned Warhammer Online fan emulator, posted a new video of an PvP battle at Dok Karaz. Brings back memories, doesn’t it? [Thanks to Sorenthaz for the tip!]

Pokémon is taking a cue from Ingress with its newest title, Pokémon GO. To capture battle critters, players will have to travel around the real world and interact with locations on their mobile devices. [Thanks to Nordavind for the tip!]

Curious about the mention of Epsilon from before? Here’s the trailer for its pre-alpha gameplay:
