Table of Contents[Hide][Show]

MMOs continue to pop up everywhere because people love playing video games with lots of different people. Even the Nintendo Switch has them, as you’ll see in a moment.

#9 DC Universe online

DC Universe Online has been around for many years, which speaks to the greatness of this game as a whole. You can immerse yourself in the DC Comics universe and create your own hero or villain character, then embark on a journey to do whatever you want!

You can go to major locations like Gotham City, Metropolis, Central City, Star City and beyond, interacting with a variety of hero and villain characters as you make your name.

The game is constantly growing and updating, and that means if you’re a new player you’ve got a TON to do. So get your hero or villain!

#8 Elemental Knight R

Want a high-end fantasy adventure that lets you become pretty much anything you want? Then Elemental Knights R is for you. Because here you can dress up your main character in different “cosplays” and become a wide variety of characters.

You start with four base classes, but it goes much deeper, especially as you play with other characters and unlock special abilities and talents through working together. Then, as you progress through the game, you’ll gain access to even more classes that let you do even more. So jump in and see what you can be!

#7 Skyforge

If you’re looking for a free-to-play title that offers you lots of content, then Skyforge is for you. This is a free MMORPG in which you will become immortal. One who has a goal of becoming a god, but this plan has a problem in the form of an alien invasion descending on you.

Now you must fight back against the invasion and save the planet to secure your divinity! Skyforge features a “dynamic combat system” that lets you pull off brutal combos, and then you can level yourself up even further by crafting your own weapons and armor.

Time to defend the planet you call home.

#6 Temtem

Catch sight of! Pokemon Ripoff Game. Yes, we’re just kidding a bit, but Temtem really is one that encroaches heavily on what Pokemon is, doing just enough to change things up to make it his own. For example, there are many “creatures” that you can collect and fight, you have to travel through a “region” to collect them all, and so on.

The difference here is the MMO aspect. You’ll see other players and their monsters running around doing their own thing while you do yours.

So play, catch, fight and see everything there is to see in this archipelago of skies!

#5 Treasure Trove

Trove is an MMO that looks a lot like Minecraft but plays in a certain way that makes it feel different. So you should be happy about that.

The main point of the game is to fend off the forces of darkness. You will go to different realms and seek out the monsters within them as you smash through dungeon after dungeon. As you do so, you’ll receive items or be able to craft your own while playing with other players to save the day.

If you want to take a break, you can actually build your own empire. So choose your class and start your adventure!

#4 Intrepid

intrepid, e3 2017

In the world of Dauntless, there are many dangers that surround you. Last but not least, there are monsters known as Behemoths that literally devour the land, and as a Slayer it’s your job to stop them.

Dauntless is an action RPG title that you can play with others and as a result you can team up with others to eliminate these threats and slowly expand yourself, your arsenal and your skills!

But don’t forget to look around in the world that’s really all around you, there are some cool landmarks and that’s why you want to preserve them!

#3 Ark Survival Evolved

Ark Survival Evolved is a game that many have found great depth in, despite its somewhat odd premise.

Because in it you are taken naked to an island and forced to survive. Which at first doesn’t sound any different than other survival games. However, the title not only pits you against the environment, but also against other players and the various creatures that inhabit the island. Last but not least, dinosaurs!

It’s up to you to slowly expand your skills and technology base, and then figure out how to get stronger and stronger, even taming the dinosaurs themselves to ride into battle!

As long as you survive, that’s important.

#2 Warframe

Now here is an MMO that is not only very big but has been growing steadily for years, and it’s free to play. This is a win in every respect.

The game lets you select a special exosuit called the Warframe, then embarks on a mission to protect a galaxy in conflict at the behest of the character known as Lotus. The fun part, as many have found, is that these exosuits offer a ton of variety. Some focus more on the blade, like Excalibur, while others focus more on strength or speed and so on.

Add to that a set of over 500 weapons to equip your characters with and you’ll have a lot of fun just trying to figure out your setup.

#1 Monster Hunter Ascension

There were a few titles that we thought we could put here, but Monster Rise deserves first place because it’s a game that continues to grow and evolve and is played by LOTS of people. Heck, the Sunbreak expansion alone was bought by millions! So you know this game is doing something right.

The title itself plays as you imagine, it takes you to a place overrun by monsters and it’s your job to eliminate them all! You can explore the wide world and work together with other players to take them down.

Then take the materials you get and craft special weapons and armor to make you stronger! Let’s go!
