dragon nest 2

Here is a look at the best MMORPGs of 2015. Although having a top MMORPG 2015 list right now might seem to be a bit premature, at any given time there are quite a few gamers who are looking for a new game to play. Many also enjoy being the first to sign up for closed beta testing or open beta games. This post will give them a good starting point.

The main criterion the writers and editors of MMOify used to pick these particular games is that they are all the sort of fun, interesting releases that MMO players are likely to want to know more about.

All of these MMOs have that certain something that catches and holds the attention of gamers. Some are small, niche titles while others are big bestsellers. Enjoy!

Planet Calypso

planet calypsoA very interesting MMORPG whose popularity has startling implications. On the surface it’s a futuristic science fiction MMORPG set on a planet where players are colonists but there is also a meta-game that you can play – the game’s real cash economy.

The in-game currency (PED) is worth real money that can be withdrawn to your bank account. So activities such as hunting, mining, crafting, taming pets, trading items, buying estates, etc., all have real-world implications.

Great for those people who have thought “Hmmm, I have been playing this game for years! If only there was a way to earn an income from just playing.”

Sparta: War of Empires

spartaA real-time strategy MMO game set in ancient Greece. The famous King Leonidas of Sparta guides the player in developing a city-state by building various structures, training troops, and gathering resources. Teaming up with other people to bring down nearby cities is both nerve-wracking and satisfying when you win. The goal is to build as big an empire as you can.

Pay to Play

Welcome to the pay to play section, aka subscription MMORPGs. These games are those that require a monthly membership payment. In other words, you cannot play if you do not pay.

Wildstar

wildstarUnlike the other pay to play games listed here that are quite serious, Wildstar has cartoonish graphics, a lighthearted art style, and amusing dialogue. Convincing your friends to play it with you might be uphill battle because of the graphics but it’s worth it because the game is extremely entertaining.

If you want to play a game with a wicked sense of humor, great active combat, fantastic dungeons, and a friendly player base, then Wildstar is the game for you. Player housing is incredibly fun, with tons of customization options. One player even created a grand piano using 758 objects.

Buy it on Amazon.com: Wildstar [Online Game Code]

World of Warcraft

world of warcraftStill going strong after all these years, World of Warcraft (WoW) remains a fan favorite. Competition from new MMORPGs has somewhat eroded the player base but it still has around 7 million subscribers worldwide.

Gameplay is as good as ever, with classic RPG elements, raids, bosses, and so forth. In short, the game still has everything players love. It’s only due to its age that some players have become bored of it.

Note that buying the “standard game” on Amazon now includes the following expansions at no additional cost – Cataclysm, Wrath of the Lich King, The Burnings Crusade, and Mists of Pandaria.

The most recent expansion, Warlords of Draenor, has recieved good reviews from players. Buying it is a good idea for both new and returning players since it includes a Character Boost that lets you instantly boost your character to level 90. Instead of a newbie tutorial, there are integrated quests that help you to learn how to play.

Buy it on Amazon.com: World of Warcraft – PC/Mac

The Elder Scrolls Online

(review coming soon)

Buy it on Amazon.com: The Elder Scrolls Online – PC/Mac


Buy to Play

Buy to play MMORPGs are those that require an initial, upfront payment before playing. No subscription or membership payment is required. This means that buyers only need to pay for the game once.

Guild Wars 2

Honestly, if you are going to spend money on just one MMORPG in 2015, then you should buy Guild Wars 2 (GW2). It’s that good. (review in progress)

Buy it on Amazon.com: Guild Wars 2 [Online Game Code]

The Secret World

the secret worldAlmost criminally underrated, The Secret World (TSW) is the best MMORPG you have probably never heard of.

Set in the modern day world with recognizable locations such as London, New York, and Seoul, TSW is a dark, supernatural adventure filled with conspiracy theories, urban myths, creatures from folklore, Cthulhu styled characters, deep mysteries, and puzzles. Players can join one of three factions: the Illuminati, Templars, and Dragons.

Quests are very well written, with lots of fully voiced scenes. Combat is admittedly a bit lackluster but this is not a game you play for combat – the main reason to play it is the interesting storyline and setting. Immersion is one of the best in the MMORPG genre, with a beautiful graphics and atmospheric (creepy!) sounds.

Upcoming MMO Games

None of these upcoming MMOs are currently playable and in many cases there really isn’t that much information about them yet. This post will be updated whenever new info is released about MMORPGs that will be launched in 2015. (First published May 2014, edited December 2014)

warhammer mmorpg

Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade
Type: PvP MMORPG for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One
Release Date: 2015
Official website: http://www.eternalcrusade.com/

For the Emperor! If this game isn’t purely awesome when it comes out, all of the Warhammer 40,000 fans will be severely disappointed. The information revealed so far indicates that the game will have four playable factions at launch: Space Marines, Chaos Space Marines, Eldar, and Orks.

Eternal Crusade will be available for free but free players will be limited to the Ork faction. Those who buy the box/download will have full access to content. In other words, this looks like it’s a mixture of free and buy to play.

theralon

Project: Theralon by Infernum Productions AG
Type: Browser-Based Sandbox MMORPG
Release Date: Unknown
Official Website: http://www.theralon.com/

According to Joystiq, Project: Theralon looks amazing for a browser-based MMORPG and is a sandbox game. Though details are scarce since it is still in development, so far it seems that players can build houses and other structures in the game. Crafting and trading will be encouraged, plus there will be no standard classes or quests.

shards online

Shards Online by Citadel Studios
Type: Player-run Sandbox MMORPG
Release Date: Unknown
Official Website: http://shardsonline.com/

An upcoming MMO that looks very promising, Shards Online will be a “player-run” MMO that will allow players to run their own servers and customize the game to their liking such as tweaking core settings such as experience/skill gain rate. Server administrators will be able to do a host of things such spawn monsters, create items, host events, etc. Players will even be allowed to modify the game code. With this type of freedom in place, Shards Online will have several differently-themed worlds (shards) like high fantasy, steampunk, a PvP world, and so forth. Polygon interviewed the CEO and has some details about the game.

city of titans

City of Titans aka The Phoenix Project by Missing Worlds Media
Type: Superhero-Themed MMORPG
Release Date: Target Date 2015
Official Website: http://cityoftitans.com/

This is a spiritual successor to the MMO City of Heroes that is being developed by “a group of volunteer developers left homeless by the closure of the game.” Basically, it’s going to be very similar to CoH. Thus, players can expect to play as either a superhero or supervillain with its own unique powers, costume, and name. In CoH players teamed up (like the X-Men or Avengers) to complete missions so this is the type of gameplay CoT will also have.

survarium

Survarium by Vostok Games

Release Date: 2014 open and closed beta, launch TBA
Monetization: Confirmed, free to play

What it is about: “After the cancellation of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, former GSC Game World developers formed Vostok Games and quickly announced Survarium, a free to play online shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world that retains many core elements found in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games.” (source)

Release Date: December 2015
Monetization: Confirmed, subscription (pay to play)
Official Website: http://camelotunchained.com/en/

Also, the game is being created by drone-sourcing the real world. Drone-sourcing involves using cameras attacjed to flying drones to scan the Earth’s surface to model the world in 3D.

Archlord 2 Review

When I think of Archlord 2, I think of epic free-to-play MMORPG battles with unlimited ways of having fun. The world of Archlord 2 can be considered as a parallel universe to that of the previous game Archlord, showing an alternate history of the world of Chantra. The game revolves around your own play style, giving you a balanced arsenal of weapons to equip as you see fit on your character without having to be restricted by your race class stats. Though the game is more focused on combat through PVP and PVE events, there are plenty of side activities to be had on the way to great fortune and success.

The visual aspects

Archlord 2 Review

The very first impact that Archlord 2 imprinted on me was how robust and well balanced the pallet of colors and graphical designs the game embodies. The titan world of Chantra seems dark and gothic like, where every living or undead creature is ready to take you apart and shred you to pieces. The visual and performance ratio is well balanced, even though there aren’t too many optional setting to go through. I am a bit disappointed about the character’s moving animations where turning, jumping and strafing made my champion seem to float rather than have a normal action behavior, but I’m pretty sure this will be covered in a near-future update of the game. The user interface is quite friendly and intuitive and even most game mechanics aren’t a hustle when it comes to managing most of the character’s stats and inventory.

Gaming

Character creation in Archlord 2

Not many games bring too much flavor to the character creation tool in their first stages, but Archlord 2 does make it easy for you to come up with an awesome looking champion in just a few well-placed clicks. The main aspect of the game is that you have to choose one side of the war, to either play as a human in the Azuni coalition, or as an orc in the Crunn coalition. You have to understand that once you choose a side you can’t create a new character in the opposite faction, but this a good thing since Archlord 2 makes you work hard and devote yourself for the war efforts of your coalition.

Now the creation of your character is fairly easy and doesn’t take too much effort since most of the character’s features are in a preset order, giving you the opportunity to come up with a champion that looks mean, strong, weak, or even crazy. However, the trick is that you are not bound by a race class and no matter what weapon you choose to start with you can always excel with other weapons you pick up along the way.

Though the weapons have different names for each side, they all associate to 4 classes: Tank (Two-handed Sword or Ax), Warrior (One-handed sword or Lance), Range (Crossbow or Bow) and Mage (Staff or Wand). I soon found out, to my surprise, that my character can have 2 weapons equipped on his person and that I could easily swap between them in battle to evade sticky situations or even to engage and defend my guild friends. You can basically train with all 4 weapon types, according to your race, and change your play style in respect to your surroundings.

The Lore

Funny thing is that according to the Archlord 2 tales, the Orcs were once humans who were betrayed by the Lord of Chaos. Everything started many years ago, when the descendants of the children of the gods, who initially were created to defeat the armies of the Lord of Chaos, separated themselves into 2 clans: The Fire and Earth Clan. The clans started a great argument based on the union of the children of the 2 clan’s leaders, who later developed into a full scale war. As the story goes, the Earth Clan was defeated and almost driven into extinction, but they made a pact with the Lord of Chaos to obtain great power to fight against the Fire Clan, not knowing the harsh price they were going to pay for.

Side Activities

Archlord 2 screenshot

When out of combat, you can always go explore the vast lands of Chantra to discover new areas and dungeons, but thread carefully as you can easily encounter big leveled creatures lurking in unexpected places. Exploration comes with its benefits as you can gather materials in your travels and later on craft them into new weapons and items to use in battles. Alchemy is also a great way of obtaining potions as Archlord 2 will force you to use every resource you have available at your disposal, thus having consumables with you will always prove beneficial in hard situations.

Another interesting and neat game mechanic I have discovered is the fact that you can unbind items after they have been bound on your champion. This is a great way to use a good piece of equipment and later on put it up for sale and get a bit of coin to get yourself something better. Never the less you can also improve your equipment or disassemble it for parts.

Aside from the generic PVE environment, players can challenge other players through PVP events. PVP is actually an important aspect of Archlord 2, since once you gain the title of Archlord you also obtain special benefits such as weapons, mounts and so on, until someone can challenge you in combat and take your title away. There are different types of PVP such a 1 vs 1 duels, or 5 vs 5 people skirmishes after reaching level 30. Bigger events include Contested Arena where people join based on the level cap and complete specific arena quests, or the Battlegrounds where the clash of the factions bring 200 vs 200 people after reaching level 40. The fun part is that in PVP events there are no safe zones, so be ready to fight or run since most of the opponents have no mercy.

Overview

I have to say that Archlord 2 is a game packed with tons of fun and interesting new mechanics. With beautiful graphics and a robust artistic world, the game will envelope you in its magic. Though having to only side with on faction in the game seem like a disadvantage, Archlord 2 gives you the pleasure of becoming the ultimate PVP champion and have the benefits of a king. With plenty of PVP and PVP content, you can adapt your play style with any weapon you choose depending on the battle situations you will encounter. If you are a gamer who loves to make his character really count and have true meaning in a free-to-play MMO, then Archlord 2 is what will fulfill those desires.

The Warlords are Coming

World of Warcraft’s latest expansion, Warlords of Draenor (WoD) will be upon us in a few days (November 13, 2014) and I know everyone is excited to cross the Dark Portal and venture into the savage lands of Draenor. WoD brings with it a bundle of important lore characters like Ner’zul, Blackhand, Orgrim Doomhammer, Durotan (Thrall’s father) and Grommash (Grom) Hellscream, the one who doomed and saved the Horde. Moreover, in case if you didn’t know, Grommash is indeed the father of Garrosh Hellscream.

There is a rumor going on that Grommash Hellscream will be the end boss of WoD. I really hope it’s nothing more than a rumor. Since everyone spend the last year fighting Garrosh Hellscream, no one wants another ‘Hellscream’ as the end boss. People have already started calling it Siege of Orgrimmar 2.0. In addition, I don’t think people want to see Grommash, the hero of the Horde became a bad guy/end boss.

Just like any other expansion of World of Warcraft, WoD too comes with changes and improvements. Aside from that, a new expansions also being with it a lot of hate as people start crying over things. There are lot of people who hated the “lose” of abilities and have started calling WoW dumb. These people don’t understand that Blizzard only removed unneeded or hardly used abilities and you can easily play without them. In addition, we will get five more abilities as we level up to 100 and there is also a level 100 talent, so in a way we will get new abilities in exchange for old ones.

Looking at the Warlords of Draenor form Blizzard’s point of view, it might just be the best thing since Wrath of the Lich King. The subscription numbers are slowing rising again as old and new players subscribe again. I remember when Cataclysm was released and people started leaving WoW, they said they didn’t care if a stupid Dragon attack. Again, when Mist of Pandaria came out and more people left, saying that the game was turning into Kung Fu Panda. Now people are coming back, they want to meet all the awesome lore character that are featured in WoD as well see how Draenor was before it turned into Outland.

The other day I showed one of my friends (who has no idea what WoW is) the trailer of MoP then the cut scene shown at the end of SoO and he loved it. Then I showed him WoD trailer and he loved that too but when I showed him Wotlk trailer he didn’t show interest. That got me thinking, to someone who is new or has never played WoW before likes MoP just because there are Pandas in it and WoD just because it looks badass. Then I realized that with MoP Blizzard went back to the Horde vs. Alliance thing of old vanilla World of Warcraft but with added twist, the Pandas. In addition, with WoD, Blizzard has recreated the time of The Burning Crusade but without the demons.

No matter what happens, am sure Warlords of Draenor will be a huge improvement to World of Warcraft. Players all over the world are super existed to play this new expansion, not only for the game play improvement but also for the awesome lore changes it will bring to the story of World of Warcraft.

Three Reasons to Play Path of Exile

Path of Exile is a free to play MMORPG by Grinding Gear Games. It is a dungeon crawler game like the Diablo series games by Blizzard, and it closely resembles Diablo 2. The game is heavily instanced as it provides each player and party with a private copy of the map. As far as I can tell, Path of Exile is the very best dungeon crawler game you can play for free. Here are three reasons why you should play Path of Exile.

path of exile

In-Depth Character Building

When I say character building, I do not mean character creation because Path of Exile doesn’t really have a character creation screen. Instead, you get a huge passive skill tree that you can use to build up a custom character. Even though you do get an option to pick a starting class which is gender locked. Picking a class only nets you a starting location on the passive skill tree.

The seven playable classes you will find are The Marauder, The Ranger, The Witch, The Duelist, The Templar, The Shadow, and The Scion. The Marauder class starts at the main strength skill location on the passive tree. The Ranger starts at the main Dexterity skill location and the Witch starts the man Intelligence skill location. The Duelist class stats at the middle of Strength and Dexterity skills, The Templar starts at the mid of Strength and Intelligence skills and The Shadow class starts at the mid Dexterity and Intelligence skills. While The Scion starts at the very center of the passive skill tree but the Scion class can only be unlocked once you have completed the game.

This allows you to customize you character according to your liking by mixing passive talents with Gems (gems allots you ability/spells). For example if you want to play as a Marauder with a Bow that shoot Burning arrows, all you need to do is use a Bow and the gems that let you shoot fire arrows as well as the passive skills that increases fire damage. Similarly, you can role as a Templar that uses a two handed Sword that slows enemies or a Ranger that uses an Axe.

Voice Acting

Most MMORPGs have great stories now days but hardly anyone knows it. Since almost every MMO features text based quests, their stories are lost, as 75% players don’t read the quest text. After all, who can read the quest text of all the quests as most games have a level cap of level 50 or more. However, in Path of Exile, all the quests have voice acting, all the NPCs whether they are friendly or enemies have voice acting. This makes for great story telling as well as makes the game more enjoyable.

Truly Free to Play

We all know how most Free to play MMOs are not really Free to play and each and every one of them have a cash shop where people can buy items that boosts their character and gives them an unfair advantage over others. When it comes to Path of Exile, it is truly free to play. Yes, there is a cash shop in Path of Exile but all the items there are cosmetic based and only grand visual effects. This makes Path of Exile the very best free to play dungeon crawler game you can find online.

KingsRoad Review

KingsRoad is a free to play broswer-based point and click style action RPG by Rumble Games. It can be played right off your browser window and you can even play it on Facebook. The creation team of KingsRoad also involved two former EA employees, Mark Spenner and Greg Richardson.

KingsRoad Review

Overview

KingsRoad is one of the very few Facebook games that are truly worth playing as this game features great graphics and simple game play on your browser. Must like other action RPGs, this game features the point to move and attack method, while your skills are bound to the keys on your keyboard. The game features such stunning graphics that in full screen mode it feels like playing a console game rather than a browser based game.

If you play the game for several hours, you are rewarded with a blessing that boosts the experience you gain for the next half hour. Being a free to play game, the KingsRoad also has a cash store that lets you buy hard currency with real money. The game dose not forces you to pay any money as the currency can also be earned by simply completing quests.

Story

KingsRoad takes place in the troubled lands of Alderstone. While the king of Alderstone is away, the kingdom is captured by foul creatures lead by Adamar the Lord of Shadows. As the warrior of the king, it is your job to save the kingdom as well as save the world that has been shrouded in darkness.

Playable Classes

Currently KingsRoad only features three playable classes: Knight, Archer, and Wizard. A knight is a melee warrior while both Archer and Wizard are ranged classes. Each class has it’s a difference set of skills as well as a skill tree. You are given one point per level to upgrade or unlock new skills. Currently all three classes only have a male model and sadly you cannot change the gender but you can change your class any time you like without having to create a new character.

Home base like Village

In KingsRoad, as you level up you unlock more and more NPCs in the village. These NPCs offer you different types of benefits like the alchemist NPC will sell you different types of potions to boost your character for a limited time. You can even exchange soft currency for a vendor-crafted item.

Cooperative mode

KingsRoad has an automatic matchmaking system that you can use to find other players for cooperative action. You can join up with other players to complete a mission. Once you have completed a mission on normal, you will unlock heroic mode that is made for cooperative game play. When you complete a mission in cooperative mode, you and your team is ranked according to their contribution to the battle and will be rewarded accordingly.

Conclusion

To sum it all up, KingsRoad is one of the few Facebook games that can give you an action RPG game play with wonderful graphic right on your browser. The cooperative mode makes it fun to play with your friends and it reward each player based on their contribution. However, the best thing about KingsRoad is that it is totally free to play as it never focuses you to buy anything.
