The MOP Up: WalkScape opens up a community portal


To bring all of the game’s news and access together in one place, the in-development ARG WalkScape created a new Portal. If you’ll recall, this title challenges players to go on actual walks to level up their RuneScape-like characters.

“Since WalkScape incorporates some ‘MMO-style’ features, it’s important for us to have a centralized platform for all things WS-related. Moreover, certain features may offer a better experience when accessed on a desktop rather than through a mobile app, which is precisely what the Portal provides.”

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)!
