The Daily Grind: How do you feel about MMO cross-promotions?


Whether it’s sanctioned or not, the tradition of MMOs taking any opportunity to draw upon the popularity of other entertainment mediums has been around for a while. It seems like a pretty slam dunk way to give your game a boost, whether that be SMITE adding Mulan, Fortnite going all Harley Quinn, or World of Warships sailing over to Midway.

Our question today: How do you feel about these cross-promotions? Do they create an aura of excitement and tie your real-life encounters with these movies, TV shows, anime, and comics to your game? Or are they as immersion-breaking as they come?

As a bonus question, which online game is — or was — the most shameless when it came to plugging in these promotions to other entertainment venues?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
