Getting lost in a virtual world, interacting with countless other players from across the globe and exploring vast landscapes - these are the things MMORPGs are all about. Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games, better known as MMORPGs, create an immersive social world where players can work together to overcome challenges, build alliances, and fight each other in PVP combat. Here at GAMIVO, we’ve got all your MMORPG needs covered with the best titles available!


The popularity of MMORPG - how did it all start?

The craze for MMORPGs didn’t occur overnight - starting in early 1990 with text-based Multi-User Dungeons like Zork, the genre went through decades of evolution. The first huge MMORPG was Ultima Online, released in 1997 and featuring a persistent world where player actions had lasting effects. 


The 1999’s EverQuest further revolutionized the MMORPG genre, introducing detailed 3D graphics and an epic fantasy setting, which many later MMOs were inspired by. In 2004, World of Warcraft was released - the biggest and most popular MMORPG still to this day, introducing rich lore, interesting NPCs, and plenty of activities for players to do except questing.


While many modern MMORPGs may share common themes, there are tons of different takes on the genre for players to choose from. You can embark on a space-faring journey with games like EVE Online, where players vie for control of resources and territories in a vast, player-driven economy. Some MMORPGs focus on strategic group content, others on player-versus-player combat, while still, others emphasize immersive role-playing and interaction. As long as people crave adventure and camaraderie, these virtual worlds will continue to evolve, crafting tales of heroism, friendship, and betrayal.


What are the most popular MMORPGs?

Over the years, hundreds of MMORPGs were released, with everyone trying to get a slice of the pie - with many failing to keep a steady stream of new players. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most notable examples of MMORPGs you can still enjoy:


  • World of Warcraft (WoW) - Launched in 2004 by Blizzard Entertainment, WoW is arguably the most famous MMORPG. Set in a high fantasy world, it is known for its deep and intricate story, a massive community of players, and a wide range of dungeons, raids, and more activities for players to choose.

  • Elder Scrolls Online - Based on the popular Elder Scrolls franchise, ESO gives players the opportunity to explore the vast continent of Tamriel with friends, meeting characters both familiar and yet unknown. If you liked Skyrim but would like to enjoy it with friends, this is the closest you can get. 

  • Guild Wars 2 - Set out to innovate the genre of MMORPGs, this game released in 2012 by ArenaNet introduced a dynamic events system, where players could suddenly encounter a boss, a quest, or other activities on their way. The game’s action-oriented combat system allows players to combo their abilities, which change depending on the hero’s class and weapon. 

  • Black Desert Online - Known for its detailed character customization and similar combat to Guild Wars 2, Black Desert Online offers players an immense sandbox experience in a sprawling fantasy world. Explore the world, hunt, gather resources, and craft your way to greatness.

  • Runescape: One of the oldest MMORPGs still active. Runescape was released back in 2001 and provides a similar fantasy sandbox experience, with a heavy focus on levelling up your skills and engaging with the player-driven economy.
