With some hit MMORPGs like Guild Wars 2 and The Secret World finding some headway in 2012 there is much to be excited about heading in to 2013. Many developers are looking to build off the momentum created last year and bring MMORPGs back into the forefront of gamers. Expansive world's and true immersion await us in 2013 and this list gives us a taste of what is coming in the year ahead. While few details from some of these games are available, we are hoping that at least a few of these new MMORPG Games will fall into the free to play category. Even if that is not the case, there's always a reason to play the top MMORPG Games and i'm sure we'll all be coming up with at least a few excuses to dive in to these games.
10. Pathfinder Online
9. Blade & Soul
8. Age of Wushu/Age of Wulin
We have developed quite a Romanticization of Ancient Asia and their culture here in the Western World. And what better to show off that romance than with an MMORPG? With its beautiful, painstakingly-designed set pieces, Age of Wushu certainly should scratch 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. The game has recently finished open and closed beta and should be coming to us shortly.
6. The Repopulation
4. World of Darkness
3. Lineage Eternal
1. The Elder Scrolls Online
Of course The Elder Scrolls Online was going to make the list, and number one is the right spot for it. It's what Elder Scrolls fans have been wanting for years now, and we don't have to wait much longer. The storyline is indirectly connected with previous Elder Scrolls titles and will be set a millennium before the events of Skyrim. Some of the most intriguing things for the game will be a fresh take on MMORPG combat, a more 'social' take on MMOs where you will be playing with your friends and a very unique PvP system based on three factions warring of Cyrodiil. Beta applications for TESO have just opened up and we are hoping and praying to be able to play this game in 2013.
Thanks for reading out list of the top 10 MMORPGs that we will be seeing in 2013 and beyond! Let us know what your most anticipated MMORPGs are for 2013 below.

Censorship Spells Trouble for League of Legends Patcher
Internet filtering has been a hot button issue for the past several years. With the slow gutting of protective measures like Net Neutrality, and with governmental powers seeking an end to online anonymity, it's rather harrowing to see the slow progression of political and social policing of the internet. Recently, after about a year of lobbying, the United Kingdom enacted a piece of legislation that many have come to call the "UK Porn Filter." What the filter requires is for British ISP's to implement filters and controls, which are on by default, that will block access to "violent material," not imited to "extremist and terrorist related content," "anorexia and eating disorder websites," and "suicide related websites."
