It’s not an easy task nowadays to find the right MMORPG to play, with many empty games around that have low player bases, not to mention the myriad of P2W titles. Here’s a list of 10 f2p MMORPGs that you should try right now.
Blade & Soul
Published by NCSoft, Blade & Soul is among the more popular free-to-play MMORPGs. The fantasy-themed game comes with a lot of anime-like visuals, a complex background story, a huge variety of classes (some are gender/race locked), and lots of boobs ‘n’ butts! There is an optional subscription available for the MMORPG, but you can fully access the game free of charge.
TERA is also a highly popular fantasy-themed MMORPG that has separate publishers for EU and NA. The NA servers are run by En Masse while Gameforge runs the EU region. The game comes with high-quality visuals, fancy action combat, tons of content for PvE and PvP, and lots of updates. You can access both regions of the game freely, but there are some in-game microtransactions. A big downside of Tera are the gender-locked new classes that are mostly female. TERA also has lots of boobs ‘n’ butts!
Aion is a veteran MMORPG that is also published separately in the NA and EU regions. The game’s population is not huge, but just enough to find people for any content. Aion is a f2p fantasy-themed PvPvE MMORPG with a huge focus on PvP, both instanced and open world. There are many classes to choose from, and there is plenty of content to keep you busy all day.
Neverwinter is an MMORPG with a decent player base and some epic D&D vibes. The instanced maps are slightly irritating, but the classes are enjoyable, and so are the dungeons and battlegrounds. Character looks are nothing fancy, but not bad at all. The MMORPG receives lots of content updates, but there are a few balance issues between classes.
Wildstar had a relatively successful launch, but lost a great deal of its player base eventually. After the sci-fi MMORPG became f2p, many have returned to the game. Once again, there are many classes and races to choose from, two playable factions and plenty of content to keep you going. The game has cartoony visuals similar to WoW, and the in-game store can be considered slightly p2w.
Skyforge is an MMORPG with sci-fi and fantasy elements, published by my.com. The game has instanced zones, and doesn’t revolve around the traditional leveling system. Skyforge has a relatively active player base and is completely f2p. Unlocking classes can be slightly irritating, but some of them are well worth it. Content-wise, Skyforge offers a variety of PvP and PvE activities.
Revelation Online also had a quite successful launch but didn’t manage to maintain the hype. Nevertheless, there are still plenty of players to hang around with and lots of content to get through. There are dungeons, battlegrounds, and open world bosses to keep you busy all day. The in-game store is slightly p2w, but not the worst kind.
Twin Saga is often tagged as the improved version of Aura Kingdom, and it is a really enjoyable f2p MMORPG. You can level all the classes on a single character, similarly to FFXIV, and the visuals are heavily anime inspired. The game is published by Aeria Games in the west, and all of its content can bee accessed freely. There is an in-game store, but it’s mostly for convenience items and cosmetics.
Star Wars: The Old Republic
Star Wars: The Old Republic, aka. SWTOR, cannot really be considered a truly free MMORPG as much of its content is locked behind paywalls. You can slowly progress without subscribing, but eventually, you will hit barriers that limit you from trading or taking part in dungeon runs and PvP. Nevertheless, SWTOR is still a decent MMORPG, with a limited player base but luckily server merges are heading our way. The game is run by BioWare.
Published by En Masse, Kritika Online is a fantasy-themed anime 3D brawler with MMORPG elements. There are activities for both PvP and PvE fans, and because the game’s western version arrived recently, there are plenty of people to play with. The hero-based classes are gender locked and character customization is fairly limited. Kritika Online comes with awesome combat animations and lots of boobs ‘n’ butts!
There you have it, these are the 10 f2p MMORPGs we recommend you to play in Fall 2017. Stay tuned for more MMORPG related news and discussions!
