MMO Week in Review: The week Bethesda got bought


Welp, it definitely wasn’t a boring week over here in the world of online games. It all kicked off on Monday, when Microsoft announced it had bought ZeniMax, Bethsoft, and Elder Scrolls Online’s ZeniMax Online Studios. Plus, we covered Ultima Online New Legacy, new afrofantasy MMO The Wagadu Chronicles, LOTRO’s upcoming DLC and rumored new class, and No Man’s Sky’s Origins update. We also interviewed FFXIV’s Naoki Yoshida.

And if you missed it – and you may have, since Funcom buried it on a Friday night – Secret World Legends is actually getting some new content. No, that’s not a typo!
