With the undead and possibly soulless cat out of the bag with Minas Morgul, Standing Stone Games is fielding a whole bunch of questions about Lord of the Rings Online’s upcoming expansion. There are many ways to handle this, but SSG’s favorite medium is via livestream, which is exactly what happened this Friday. Community Manager Jerry Snook gathered together several questions from Hobbits and gamers alike about Minas Morgul and answered them in a video. What was of great interest was further details about the “Mordor Besieged” realm, which Snook said will take players on a time travel trip to the Second Age and the last time Mordor got trounced by the Free Peoples. Here’s a fun twist: You’ll be able to store all of the loot you get in the Second Age part and then dig it up to keep on your main character!

Developed by Runewaker Entertainment, Runes of Magic is a classical, free-to-play MMORPG which could be accused of being a World of Warcraft clone.

Eternal Magic is an upcoming MMORPG by 101XP that’s currently in open beta. Available for all players with an early access pack, the CBT will run until September 15th. Having played it for four days, here’s some key thoughts about the five most important aspects of Eternal Magic as an MMORPG. What Is Eternal Magic?

Russian game publisher 101XP announced a new free to play MMORPG today titled Eternal Magic which will be launching into closed beta soon with open beta set to begin sometime in the second half of 2019. While the game itself doesn't look like anything special, the official trailer does feature some pretty terrible voice acting, which makes it well worth checking out: Besides the terrible voice acting, the game's release timeline is hilariously useless.
