Yes, we know. It’s not Sunday. It is, however, Monday, and that makes looking at all the MMO news from last week even more sensible.
We think so, anyway. Read on.

The latest EverQuest II update, Elements of Corruption, has gone live.
Players will witness the invasion of Lavastorm, as the island is invaded by Void creatures, so we’re told.
New armor will be available for purchase along with new solo content, weapon slots, robe appearances, and new character appearances and stats.
Good to hear.
More features are listed in the press release after the break.

According to a post over on the World of Warcraft forums, lead designer Jeffery Kaplan will no longer be working on Blizzard’s behemoth, but will instead shift all his focus to the company’s “unannounced MMO”.
Jeffery states that he will still be involved in the future progression of WoW, but that day-to-day work on the game will no longer be part of his schedule.
“I still plan to be very involved with the future course of World of Warcraft, but will leave the day to day operations of World of Warcraft to my partners in crime, Tom Chilton and J. Allen Brack,” he said.
“When all is said and done, WoW is still my favorite game. I play it every day. None of that passion is gone. If anything, it fuels the challenge of making our next MMO even better. We know we have some big shoes to fill.”
If Blizzard is pulling Jeffery off of WoW, that can only mean one of two things: the new MMO is not progressing as they had hoped it, or it’s going to be huge. More than likely the latter.

Warrior Epic, True Games’s upcoming action MMO, is accepting applicants for a closed beta test.
The game’s site was recently revamped, so while you’re over there signing up for a bit of hack and slash you can also check out some screens and a video.
Space for the beta’s limited, so get on with it. There’s more in the press release after the jump.

Looks like the end has finally come for Hellgate: London, at least in its current form.
As of yesterday, the game servers and official website have finally, actually been closed.
Never fear, though. If you enjoyed the game you’ll eventually be able to start anew in its free-to-play form when HanbitSoft relaunches the game complete with new content and gameplay changes.
You may have to fear a little, though. The exact release date and territories to be serviced by the revamp are still to be announced.
More through Massively.
