The MOP Up: China’s getting Fallout Shelter Online, and that’s not fair


For my money (and time), the best Fallout game of the past five years has been Fallout Shelter, a mobile base builder which has sucked up more of my attention than I’d care to admit. I’ve been hoping to see a sequel at some point, especially one that would take it in more of an online direction.

The good news is that Fallout Shelter Online is, indeed, happening this month. The bad news? It’s just going to be in China… at least for now. So you can dream of more features, including base invasions, but unless you live in that country, it’s only going to be a dream until or unless Bethesda changes its mind.

And this is just the beginning of the rest of the news! Read on for a roundup of other smaller MMO news stories and videos from this past week in this edition of The MOP Up (and if you don’t see a news story that we should have covered, drop us a tip)!

AdventureQuest 3D’s questing system just got a major upgrade: “With our new town and growing world it became painfully obvious that we need the ability to have quests of all types take us anywhere and everywhere. So we made it possible. You can now set any quest as your main quest and know exactly where to go to do it.”

Gobble up this Elder Scrolls Blades patch: “The highlights include decreased repair and skill reset costs, fixing enemies that don’t drop XP, and quest difficulty adjustment.”

Moscow is calling Armored Warfare, and fools that it was, it picked up the phone. This content update includes a story arc, four missions, and a “special co-operative gameplay mode.”

Blade and Soul’s 12th class, the Archer, just started testing over in Korea. Kind of surprising that this class didn’t come standard from launch, but hey, it walks its own floaty path.

One former Rockstar employee came out to claim that the company’s vice president of product development groped him four-and-a-half years ago.

War of Rights is starting to roll out the South Mountain battlefield and password-protected servers with Update 153.

WURM Online pushed out a small patch full of tweaks, including changes to fishing and combat AI.

Who gets a second action bar in RuneScape’s legacy mode? You! You get a second action bar! Now, what are you going to fill it with? Creamy nougat?

Fledgling MMO studio Nyou just secured $8.3 million in funding for future game. Its first? Something called “Project N1” that’s coming to the east.

John Cleese’s Sir Cadwell is back for Elder Scrolls Online’s latest expansion and I’m more excited about this than I should be. I love that man.

Dofus challenges you to confront the next Dungeon Rusher, Missiz Freezz (say that out loud, you’ll get it). Apparently “she was once a loving wife.” That’s an important detail. [Thanks Panagiotis!]

One of Star Trek Discovery’s actors returned for Star Trek Online’s latest update, and she wanted to share her experiences reprising the role for you:

The Dalaran Heist is now in its fourth chapter over at Hearthstone, so if you haven’t gone through it yet, it’s time to catch up:

Cuisine Royale is still a very real thing — even though it is a joke — and it’s just launched on the Xbox One:
