Were you too busy gaming this week to pay attention to MMO news? Get caught up every Sunday evening with Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review!

So E3 happened this week, and while it was one of the weaker E3s in recent memory for MMORPGs specifically, it still had plenty on offer: The Elder Scrolls Online dominated with its One Tamriel and housing announcement, Dual Universe clarified its sandbox PvP nature, and Sea of Thieves continued to tease its MMO features. There’s a bit more to come as well — stay tuned for embargo drops!

But the week ended on a sad note too, as Friday night Daybreak announced its intention to sunset PlanetSide 1 and Legends of Norrath.

Read on for the very best of the MMOs at E3 as well as this week’s MMO news and opinions.
