The MOP Up: Easter springs upon us (March 27, 2016)


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!

Today is Easter, and a few MMORPGs are getting into the spirit of the spring holiday with events, eggs, and all sorts of bunny benevolence. Dark Age of Camelot heralds the return of the Rites of Spring, World of Warcraft opens the doors of Noblegarden, Cabal 2 is being invaded by the Easter Moon Bunny, Portal Knights is hosting an Easter egg hunt, Skyforge has all sorts of Eastery contests going on, and even ARK has a giant egg-laying hare in its bestiary.

New Games and Testing

  • Seas of Gold: If you’re into piratey games, we’ll dubiously point you to this new title and wish you the best of luck. Make sure to read the awkwardly translated FAQ before you start out!
  • Paladins: There’s a new character on deck, Ying. We should be hearing more about her shortly!
  • Kings and Heroes: A new open-world fantasy action-RPG? Oh, you betcha. This game was just announced and will head into Steam early access fairly soon. [Thanks Dartoxer!]

Project Gorgon’s been adding a ton of great stuff to the game lately, including the playable bat class, animal armor, and new weather effects. Check out this hilarious video update for the full rundown:

A new melee tank, Sevarog, is coming to Paragon on Tuesday, March 29th. This video walks you through everything you need to know about… him? It? His Grim Reaperness?
