Halloween has landed in MMOs, and Bree and Justin have dressed up for the occasion (you can't see us, but trust us, our costumes are impressive). In this edition of the podcast, we talk about seasonal festivities, SWTOR's controversial endgame changes, an expansion to Middle-earth, and more!

As expected, Final Fantasy XIV made its big expansion announcement at Fanfest this past weekend, and the Massively OP Podcast team is here to pick over the surprising details of the reveal. It's more than just Stormblood, however, as WoW's 7.1 patch, Daybreak's mysterious new project, and a sad goodbye to a children's MMO take up the hour.

In this week's show, Bree and Justin digest the news of an unexpected (well, mostly unexpected) new major MMO in development. Is it too early to get excited about New World? Will it just be another gankbox? Is this the direction that the industry needs to take? Why is Amazon Game Studios going this route?

When MMORPGs are casually tossing the phrase "rise of" into their expansion titles, you know you're in for a struggle against a huge boss... that won't be rising anywhere, except perhaps to be killed for the millionth time in a raid. As Justin solemnly contemplates this, MJ and Eliot join the cast to bring the whole production down to earth.

As the team recovers from DragonCon, PAX West, Legion's launch, and Labor Day, it's anything but normal around the Massively OP office. It's fall, and that means that we're wading into expansion and launch season for MMOs, including a couple of significant titles this past week.

Dressed in top hat, tails, frills, and chaffron, the podcast crew is heading to the opera this week! On the show, Bree and Justin talk about a grand return to Karazhan, a lackluster Gamescom, and an MMO that has entered the witness protection program and gotten itself a new name.
