MMO Week in Review: The Elder Scrolls Online's pre-launch is here


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.

MMO drama! If you're not quite in ESO's early access just yet, make sure to check out our ESO columnist Larry Everett's livestream from earlier today, and then read on for a look at all of this week's top MMO stories.
