Always Online Podcast: Embracer Buys LOTR, Pumped For Redfall, MMORPG Releases, And YoshiP's Future of Online Gaming Ep 444

Embracer Group is at it again buying up a few game companies and taking the Lord of the Rings IP with it. Could that mean a different future of LOTRO or a different MMORPG? That's not all though as Quakecon reveals new details for multiple titles and we're doing a deep dive into Redfall to see if the upcoming open world vampire title piques our interest. Finally we talk the future of multiplayer games and look at a few new releases coming to the MMO world in the coming weeks! All that and more on this week's Always Online!
