16 Upcoming MMO Games Worth Keeping an Eye On

6. Landmark

Platforms: PC

Release Date: TBA

Landmark is a sandbox style MMO that lets players “claim” a piece of the in-game world to build whatever they like on it. Right now, gameplay mostly centers around collecting materials, which you use to construct your own custom buildings. Combat was also recently added though, and more MMO-like features are on the way. Most excitingly, some of the creations players have come up with in Landmark will eventually make their way over to EverQuest Next, with the two games being designed as a collaborative experience.  Landmark is currently in closed beta, with an official release TBA.

7. The Repopulation

Platforms: PC

Release Date: TBA

Repopulation is a highly ambitious indie MMO that will feature player created cities, nations, and militaries in an original sci-fi setting. If you’re looking for an MMO that focuses more on the social aspects, this might be one to watch out for, granted this first-time development team didn’t bite off more than they could chew.

8. Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues

Platforms: PC

Release Date: TBA 2015

Richard Garriott has returned to RPGs with this “spiritual successor” to his Ultima series. Shroud of the Avatar is interesting as its MMO features are optional, with players given the opportunity to create a singleplayer-only character instead of joining the persistent online world. The game will also combine traditional MMO elements (like player housing, guilds, etc.) with more experimental ones, such as the ability to type out conversations with NPCs.

9. Skyforge

Platforms: PC

Release Date: TBA

Skyforge is set in a fantasy sci-fi world where players take on the role of immortals, aspiring to eventually become gods. Unlike traditional RPGs, Skyforge won’t have a level-up system. Instead, players’ levels will include the cumulative total of all of their skills and stats, allowing you to switch classes on the fly. And once players hit godhood, their progression will be determined by the number of followers they can gather.

10. Star Citizen

Platforms: PC

Release Date: TBA

To date, Star Citizen has accumulated over $73 million in crowdfunding. The development team is putting that money to good work, developing one of the most ambitious space exploration games we’ve ever seen, with plans for a massive persistent universe, ship simulator combat, first-person shooter modes, and even a story-based singleplayer campaign. The game is far from finished, but pieces of it are gradually being released to early adopters.
