The MOP Up: Funcom delays Moons of Madness’ console release


For those starving in the Secret Worlds Legends content wasteland of 2019, there was at least the single-player spin-off Moons of Madness to enjoy. Unless you were a console player, of course, in which case you had to wait. And you will continue to wait.

“It’s with a heavy heart that we have to announce that the console release of Moons of Madness has been moved to March 24, 2020,” said Funcom last week. “This is so we have more time to optimize the game for consoles. We understand and apologize for the frustrations this may cause.”

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)!

There are also some new limited edition dye colors and the frozen polearm skin set has been added to the Nithron Store.” Also, there was a more recent one that improved the PvE experience.
