The MOP Up: Gran Saga’s big Korean launch


NPixel’s cross-platform Gran Saga is finally going live this week — albeit in Korea, for now. The attractive-looking mobile and PC title is supposed to make its way to the west some time next year, however, so it’s always good to take a tour of its offerings to see if this is a title you’d like to keep on your watch list.

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)!

Warframe’s Orphix Venom event is raging on the console through February 22nd: “Deploy your Necramech or borrow one from Father for the operation to fight off oncoming hordes. Survive for as long as possible to earn blueprints for Lavos, the newest Warframe, plus much more!”

Habbo posted an update of the title’s current priorities (32-bit compatibility and performance issues at the forefront), while it also talked about how it’s going to make the building system better in the game.

KurtzPel’s latest patch brought in a new awakening system that allows players to unlock passive and active skills.

There’s this truck now in Grand Theft Auto Online that’s, I guess, supposed to be totally tubular for tricks. Rock on.

It looks like Apex Legends is indeed coming to Nintendo Switch next month!

Crossfire WarZone has a new patch for you: “The new Alliance Raid System allows players to rally together with their alliance members against a powerful foe for an epic team combat experience.”

The Predator has arrived in Fortnite, which completely fits in with this game’s intricately mapped storyline. Wait, does it have one?

ArcheAge’s southeast Asian servers are merging to form a new one called, wait for it, Nui. The company’s press release called this “a new leap forward” for the game, which is one way to go with that announcement.

SinSeed is a new battle royale variant that never, ever ends: “Think of a battle royale game, when you face off against thousands of online players and rule the kingdom, you are now their worst enemy.”

The player fighting game community rolled out a new code of conduct for attitudes, behavior, and tournament structure — but not everyone is having it.

Conan Exiles released a small patch with balance and performance improvements.

Both the 2021 Capcom Cup and the 2021 Street Fighter League World Championship has been cancelled this year due to COVID. “While we strongly believe that we could have executed a great event with limited risk to players, staff, and crew, we have reevaluated as the situation has evolved and the state of this global pandemic has heightened,” said Capcom.

Valorant’s pro-circuit wants to introduce you to the “first class” of its competitors:

I really like the environments of Gran Saga, it looks gorgeous. Sort of a similar feeling I get with TERA’s world. If anyone knows, is it more of an MMO style or is it sort of like Genshin Impact? Looks like you have a party of characters.


Is it another Gacha game? I feel like Genshin already does a good job, it was first on scene, so I don’t have much hope for Gran Saga taking too much of that pie.

Nice. File that one under the many enthusiastic ways in which studios try to paint server merges.
