The Best MMORPGs to Play – May 2013

So which are the Best MMORPGs to play right now? What are the new releases? Is it worth spending precious time in the new MMORPGs?

It’s always hard to choose and hop-in to a new MMO. It’s either the lack of feedback and information on new games, over-hype on some others and time dedication needed in order to check them out yourselves as well.  It’s been some time since we published a list with the Top MMORPGs for 2013, so lets refresh our memory and check out all the cool new games that have released or entering open beta in the following days.

DARKFALL: Unholy Wars

Darkfall: Unholy Wars the relaunch of the orignal Darkfall and is probably the best sandbox MMORPG on a medieval setting. It has improved graphics and sound over the original and a simplified skill system making it more approachable by new players.

scarlet blade f2p 1024x576 The Best MMORPGs to Play   May 2013

SCARLET BLADE

Originally named in Korea as Queens Blade, Scarlet Blade is a controversial title because of it’s M+ rating and light dressed female only characters. Behind the cheap wrapping there is a good game waiting to be explored. Extremely polished for an open beta. Only bad thing is that it’s community might be a little immature but that’s something to be expected in a game with so much nudity. Not the best game, but it’s worth downloading and checking it out if you’re bored of your main MMORPG since it’s fresh, polished and sexy. Play Now for Free!

The secret world New York The Best MMORPGs to Play   May 2013

THE SECRET WORLD

Funcoms latest MMORPG started with a subscription payment model. That recently changed and makes the game even more compelling to play.

Probably one of the best MMORPGs ever created. Highly recommended. Play Now!

    Descent list, would like to see some more sandbox games in there though.

  • Paul Preibisius

    Only have experience with two one here, Neverwinter and Secret World. The Secret world had a great atmosphere/story/setting but the entire combat system felt really clunky and repetitive.

    Neverwinter I’m enjoying a bit more, but with only a couple weeks play time I can see that it is an inherently fun but lacking in the depth department (while the user-generated content of the foundry is great there, I refer more to the crafting systems, comparatively modest changes resulting from different statted gear, and little feel of personalization in terms of how you allocate power/feat points– the skill tree equivalents here).

    I think it’ll be a good deal of fun for a few weeks but nothing to hold me long term as MMOs in the past have (i.e. 6+ months).
