The MOP Up: Worlds Adrift makes room for PvE servers (August 12, 2018)

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 Old School RuneScapeWorlds Adrift, Destiny 2Starfall OnlineSurvived ByHyper UniverseElswordPirate101War of RightsRagnarok OnlinePerfect World MobileOrbusVRSMITE, and Prosperous Universe, all waiting for you after the break!

New Games and Testing

  • Prosperous Universe: The small dev team is ramping up for a “much bigger test run” in a few months and is looking for player input right now.
  • Ragnarok Online: A new mobile MMO from Tencent, called Love at First Sight, is apparently in development!
  • Starfall Online: A major crafting test is underway for this sci-fi MMO — are you on board? [Thanks Dekthro!]
  • Worlds Adrift: PvE servers are on their way to the game, and the devs have a lot to say about this in a recent AMA: “We want to open a PvE server, where certain things will be turned off […] This allows people who just want to get into the game with their friends, build a ship, explore, find stuff, progress through the weather walls and not really worry about all the other stuff.”

It would be cool to build a ship and keep it in World’s Adrift. Instead of it being blown away. However, I feel like it’s going to lose a lot of challenge too. Not much of a threat if it’s straight PVE, so I’d vote for the hybrid.

So, Worlds Adrift is now going to have either a PvE server or a “Hybrid” server (PvE in most places, PvP in the badlands); the devs are still figuring which one they will go for. The devs finally figured out just how many players avoid the game if it has PvP, and apparently they aren’t happy with the number.

If they go for PvE (as in, no player on player damage anywhere in the game) then I might get myself a copy.
