MMO Week in Review: Racial indistinctions


At the end of every week, we round up the best and most popular news stories, exclusive features, and insightful columns published on Massively and then present them all in one convenient place. If you missed a big MMO or WoW Insider story last week, you've come to the right post.

This week, Carbine Studios chose SDCC 2013 to reveal WildStar's final two races, the Gnomes and the Forsaken. Wait, let me start again. The Gibberlings and the Arisen. Crap, that's not it either. OK, it's the Chua and the Mordesh. All jokes aside, the game's techno-gremlins and mystic-zombies are both pretty badass and will certainly make your choice between Alliance and Horde that much harder. Er, I mean Exiles and Dominion. Darnit.

We also discussed WildStar's elaborate addon system and upcoming business model reveal. Read on for a look at the rest of this week's top MMO stories!
