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!

This week, Dark Age of Camelot tested a new RvR map, Perfect World International launched a new expansion, TERA released creepy cat mounts, EVE London is a go, and a ton of games dumped trailers at G-Star. Read on for the complete roundup!

Late Show host and notorious geek Stephen Colbert made a few jokes at Actiblizz’s expense over its purchase of Candy Crush developer King. [via Kotaku]

TERA added new cat mounts to its cash shop. Very creepy ones.

Elite: Dangerous’ Horizons DLC is in beta!

Civilization Online brought a new trailer to G-Star. [via Steparu]

So did Arpiel Online. Its beta launches in South Korea on December 3rd.

And so did Master X Master – think of it as NCsoft’s Heroes of the Storm. Its open beta has been delayed into 2016.

More G-Star! This one’s from Hyper Universe Online. Steparu has even more vids.

Life is Feudal released a gameplay video and screenshot comparisons. Testing is on the way too! [Thanks, Robert!] The press release says,

More than just a visual upgrade though, the launch release also represents a tremendous leap forward in terms of gameplay, with the improved UI and crafting giving players better tools and knowledge to create, build, and become a vital part of the community.

As seen in the video, the physics-based combat of Life is Feudal: Your Own brings authenticity to the battlefield. Every swing and thrust, including the force of the attack, is controlled by a player’s movements, And, with no lock-on targeting, players must always be mindful of positioning; strategically maneuvering to out-flank opponents and maximize the momentum of attacks.

And don’t forget the aforementioned PWI: War Front; it’s got a launch trailer and new pics too.

Talking cats supposed to be cute but actually are creepy… BnS’ bipedal feline summons are just way out of wack.

I want to nuke those stupid cat mounts. How I wish my Sorcerers Fireblast could be used on them.

I don’t think it is cool at all to bundle f2p games on a pc I just purchased.  I don’t know if Alienware is generally as trashy as Dell but they seem to be with that move.

I’ll add a link to my Twitch video of the new Life is Feudal DX11 graphics exploration as well.  Note that I don’t normally stream much of anything, so it may be a little rough!  There are also a number of bugs with the current iteration… I discovered issues with the maximize button, tunneling, smaller items on the ground, even tighter range issues with attempts to do things, and generally just a little roughness on how things were going (although that may be due to streaming with graphics not turned down on my starting to get older computer.)
Anyway, if anybody is interested, feel free to take a look.
