5. Battlestar Galactica Online
Inspired by the TV series, Battles Galactica Online makes for a very good browser-based MMORPG. It was developed and published by Bigpoint and Artplant, released for open beta on February 11, 2011. The fans of the series looking for a complex plot and storyline will be quite disappointed however.The game doesn’t focus on storytelling and without a decent amount of information to back the game events up, throws the player right in the middle of a war raging between Humans and Cylons.
Drakensang Online is a free-to-play fantasy MMORPG that plays like a game of Diablo more than a game like World of WarCraft. Drakensang Online is a browser-based MMO based on the PC game The Dark Eye: Drakensang.In this edition players fight against inhabitants of the dark realms invading the lands of Grimmagstone to Shorefolk.
Your hero will be exploring various dungeons and killing off hordes of monsters and dragons in the Anderworld, while also challenging others players in PvP matches. Embedding powerful spells into your swords and staffs add a new dimension to the gameplay as well.
This browser-based MMO means there is no need to download a game client, just send your friends the link and everyone will be dungeon crawling in the time it takes to create an account, much better than downloading a 6GB client install, possibly taking all day to complete.
The extraordinary 3D graphics and effects, along with the visually amazing game world make this next generation browser game one of the most popular in the category. This game is great for Dungeons and Dragons fans looking for a video game to play in a new universe.
3. Eden Eternal
Eden Eternal is a fantasy themed MMORPG that transports players into a world in desperate need of harmony. After several races migrated to a newly discovered continent for a fresh start, they quickly found out from firsthand experience that old habits are hard to break.A disagreement about the direction their future should take erupted into firestorm ignited by previous racial hatred and tension.

1. Lord of the Rings Online
The Lord of the Rings Online is a fantasy MMORPG where you take on the role of a Man, Elf, Dwarf, or Hobbit and set out on your own journey through J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth. Now free-to-play, The Lord of the Rings Online (called LotRO in the MMO community) has gained an increase in player activity and interest, and it recognized as one of the best MMO’s in the free-to-play market.
From the start, you are thrown into the action with interactive quests and fierce battles. Players are only given the option of choosing between the ‘good’ or ‘free’ races, but can play as monsters in special PvP battles starting at level 10. In total there are nine distinct classes available, though not all are available to all races. PvP in LotRO is a bit different than most MMORPGs; players fight in large battles either as special level 50 monsters or as their normal characters.
We hope you enjoy our Top 5 free RPG games of 2012 and don’t forget to share what you think are the best free to play RPG games with us in the comments!
