Top 5 MMOs

MMO is a one-of-a-kind game genre since it fulfills the player’s dream, such as living in a fantasy world and playing as your character of choice. These are only some of the features of an MMO game that players want to have. Some might unveil amazing stories that can garner millions of players across the world. People have also made friends through playing MMORPGs.

Let’s have a look at the Top 5 MMOs that you should play during 2023!

Final Fantasy XIV

Surprised? Of course not. Final Fantasy is an MMO game developed by Square Enix in 2010 but it immediately flopped and was revamped in 2013, which has made the players super excited since then. Ever since the Final Fantasy franchise started, people have always waited for its continuation.

Final Fantasy offers a unique storyline that the players will enjoy, especially with its combat mechanics. The game has improved generation after generation, specifically with its mechanics, from it being a menu-based game in which the player will select an action from the list to an open-world RPG where you can create your own character, party with other people, and raid dungeons to earn rewards.

Final Fantasy XIV differs from other MMOs. Unlike World of Warcraft, FFXIV has a much better character design with its character details and smooth movements. Its lore may be long and might take ages to finish, but it will be interesting and exciting as you play it longer. It’s worth taking a shot at playing FFXIV plus Patch 6.4: Dark Throne just got released on May 23, 2023, so it is a good time to start playing!

World of Warcraft

Who would make an MMO list without including World of Warcraft? World of Warcraft is considered to be the King of MMO games. It has been a pioneer of MMORPG since 2004, and up until now, it is still played by millions of players across the globe.

The game will be free up until level 20 and will require a subscription for you to play the majority of the content of WoW.

What makes WoW different from other MMOs is the lore that the game provides, since it is based on the game ‘Warcraft’. Ever since Warcraft’s release, it has become a huge part of the gaming community, to the point that when WoW was released, a lot of people waited and played it due to its continuation of the Warcraft story. This also includes the vast open world that it provides which indulges every player into each area that gives its own charisma.

Compared to games such as EVE Online and Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft can be considered a newbie-friendly game but with a high learning curve as you proceed with playing it for a long time. But this provides a much better experience for the veterans and even for the hardcore players, the equipment optimization or what they call class builds differ for each player depending on what their play style is.  

You might want to consider giving it a try, since it will be a good experience for those who are new to the MMO genre.

Elder Scrolls Online

Elder Scrolls Online is an MMORPG developed by ZzeniMax Online Studio and published by Bethesda Softworks back in 2014 and is an ongoing game that is based on the Elder Scrolls series which is developed by Bethesda Softworks.

Elder Scrolls Online shares the same features like World of Warcraft which can be played for free and at some point it will require $20 for the base game only and some additional content will cost more. Some may think that ESO is not worth buying, but it is a tough competitor against games such as WoW and FFXIV.

The game is set in Tamriel the ancient land that includes the provinces of Morrowind, Daggerfall, and Skyrim. The gameplay is the same as any MMO, ESO stands out because of its world design, voice acting, and the elements of the story. Even if ESO only has 4 classes, don’t worry as each class offers a large customization compared to the others.

If you are a fan of the Elder Scroll series, you will surely love this variation. For those who are just starting out, you might want to try this game out!

Black Desert

Black Desert is a game developed by a Korean game developer called Pearl Abyss. It was published for Microsoft Windows in 2014. It’s a sandbox-oriented fantasy MMORPG, which also has a mobile version titled Black Desert Mobile that was released in Asia in 2019. It is a free-to-play game in some regions. Although it will cost you money to play any further, an example is the English language editions.

Black Desert provides 26 different classes to choose. The game also shows different features such as housing, fishing, farming, and trading. Usually, Black Desert hosts PVP events and castle battles and it is known for its well-developed character customization.

Several factors in the game help with immersion and the sandbox aspect. Typhoons and other significant occurrences are part of the dynamic, global weather system, which will have an impact on gameplay.

Events like the brief fog will be included in the local weather, which players may use to launch surprise attacks on competing guild structures.

The game provides a lot of features that a player can enjoy and explore with your friends or by yourself. If you are a fan of PVP and a hardcore player, the game will provide you with what you are looking for, but on the other hand, if you are a player who enjoys their time and does not want to be involved in PVP, you can enjoy the vast world of Black Desert and enjoy every single detail of the design and story that it unveils.

New World

New World is a game developed by Amazon Games Orange County and published by Amazon Games in 2021. It is set in the mid-seventeenth century, where the players play in a land-based of The Americas. 

To begin with, New World started with a lot of problems, this includes server lags, some unbalanced weapons, and bugs that made the game unenjoyable. But as time goes by, the developers have been fixing these problems one by one up until now. They have also issued a roadmap that shows the future projects or plans that the creators have in mind, this includes balance changes, new features and items, and MOUNTS! Yes, that’s right mounts!

The game starts with the player choosing their faction, gathering materials, crafting items, gaining control and influence from settlements, finishing quests, and exploring the world. It has the elements of different MMO games, and it is a fun and easy-to-learn game. Some also prefer New World due to its unique way of bringing a history-based story into the world of MMORPG. In addition to this, unlike the other MMO games, you are not restricted to one type of weapon, you can pick whatever you want and transition to another one if you feel like it.

New World is a game that can be enjoyed by both PVP and PVE players. Meaning it is a game that focuses on both combat and quality of life skills.
