With many of the current titans of the MMO genre losing subscribers by the day (there?s still a rather insistent camp that believes Mists of Pandaria is indicative that WoW has jumped the shark), many folks are looking for other avenues through which they can gain their MMO fix. Thankfully, the industry?s delivered- here?s our list of the top 10 mmo games we?ll all be seeing ?and playing ? in the very near future.
10. Pathfinder Online
9. Blade & Soul
8. Age of Wushu/Age of Wulin
Here in the Western World, it seems as though many of us have replaced our romanticization of the medieval era with that of ancient Asia. With its beautiful, painstakingly-designed set pieces, Age of Wulin certainly scratches that itch. But that?s not what makes this martial arts action MMO awesome. First, there?s no typical ?level up? system. Your character will progress as you learn skills and seek out martial arts masters. Second, the developers emphasize mobility- something which most MMOs seem to fall short on. Third, they?ve gone out of their way to create a realistic world- when you log out, your character remains in-game as an NPC, performing a profession of your choosing or just wandering about. Enemy players and factions can actually kidnap your character while they?re in this state, and it?ll fall to your own faction to rescue you. It?ll be hitting North America in 2012, and best of all? It?s free to play.
6. The Repopulation
4. World of Darkness
3. Lineage Eternal
1. The Elder Scrolls Online
It?s what Elder Scrolls fans have been wanting for years now- an Elder Scrolls MMORPG. The combat sounds fresh and interesting (word is, it?ll be similar to what you?d see in Skyrim or Oblivion), the story and world are both intriguing, the quest system is a unique step away from tradition, and the ability for players to war over the throne of Cyrodiil ? and select a player from among their faction to put on the throne ? is a very, very nice touch.
Thanks for reading out list of the top 10 MMORPGs that we will be seeing in 2013 and beyond!
