Red Dead Redemption 2’s release was a huge week for gamers, but what did the other big games in 2018 look like? We take a closer look at the most popular titles of this year so far.
The “lost ark delayed because of new world” is the news that Ark: Survival Evolved was delayed due to the release of a new update. The update will be released on August 29th, but it has not been revealed what exactly the update entails.
Maybe you didn’t notice, but with the game’s delayed debut on Friday, a lot of people – including us – have been playing Lost Ark this weekend. On Saturday, the game reached a peak of 1,325,305 concurrent players. Meanwhile, World of Warcraft has set February 22nd as the release date for Eternity’s End, while the destiny of LOTRO is undetermined due to the Lord of the Rings rights deal.
Today, like every Sunday (since 2010!) in Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review, catch up on the best of this week’s MMO news and perspectives!
