The MOP Up: Skull & Bones’ immersive soundscapes


Skull & Bones hasn’t been making many splashes since its debut back in February, but it did drop another video dev blog, this one focused on immersive soundscapes. “Sound is more than what you hear,” Ubisoft says. “It can help set the tone and create an authentic atmosphere. But more importantly, it can influence how you feel and guide your perception of the world.”

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)!

Funcom dropped a small patch for Conan Exiles shoring up some of the UI and inventory management issues with chapter 4.

War Thunder used top-secret blueprints for a banhammer to oust 3685 botters and cheaters this past month.

Vendetta Online is still trucking; its first patch of April added new custom missions.

Lost Ark released a new-format video, and if you have 55 minutes to spare, you’ll enjoy the CM, a dev, and three influencers talks about the new raid and more.

Rogue server Toontown Corporate Clash announced a vulnerability in its website led to a minor security incident. “One of the libraries we used on the website, Datadog RUM, was misconfigured and sent personal information to a 3rd party we don’t control,” the devs say. “After our investigation, we have no reason to believe that malicious actors were in play, nor do we think critical personal data, such as emails and passwords, have been leaked as part of this incident. We also believe the 3rd party did not store and process the data transmitted to them, as they were a domain parking service with thousands of other parked domains, which was likely unaware of the vulnerability and were not targeting us specifically.” At worse, a third party may have gotten access to info about your location, IP, device model, and browser. Really, this is more disclosure than we get from AAA companies.

Mechwarrior 5 announced Clans back at GDC, complete with a new demo trailer.

Fae Farm slipped out it’s 2.2.1 patch with a handful of bug fixes.
