We may be an MMORPG website, but we still keep an eyeball on multiplayer games that our audience is interested in. Here’s a quick skim through some of the “not so massively” titles we’re watching and their most recent happenings!
Main Assembly: Team17 and Bad Yolk Games’ early access robot sandbox added underwater content, a new sandbox map called – wait for it – Sandy Box, and of course, the Bot Brawl mode that gives the update its name.
Atlas: Grapecard’s pirate MMO wiped its entire map with this week’s update and revamped the game’s trade system with virtual shipments. “Once complete, the Trade System will allow an automated exchange of goods among players across then ATLAS globe,” the studio says.
ARK Survival Evolved: Dinosaurs are invading the new Xbox Series X as Wildcard’s rolled out “major visual enhancements” as the game hits the new console.
Grounded: Remember Obsidian’s adorable survival sandbox? It’s been out for a year now, and this week it dropped the Koi Pond update, with “new wildlife, new crafting recipes, and new mysteries, along with underwater gameplay mechanics that will allow players to go deeper than ever before.” Obsidian is currently celebrating the rollout of the game on the new Xbox consoles as well as counting 5 million players.
Legends of Runeterra: Riot’s fledgling card game this week introduced the “all new experimental Lab, the debut of Friend Spectate, and a hefty set of balance changes headlined by updates to seven Champions.”
