MMO Week in Review: Final Fantasy XIV Shadowbringers’ new class and race, Fortnite’s mega concert

If you haven’t checked out our XIV columnist’s coverage yet, you should, as the game we named MMORPG of 2018 revealed the Gunbreaker job, new zone, new beast tribe, and new bunnygirls race.

I love how each avatar will have a different “pose” while sitting in the car. The lalafell one is priceless. Let’s hope I don’t have to kill Monster X 99 times to do get it :)
