Get comfy and prepare your consoles for some awesome MMO games coming out on PlayStation in 2021 Bárbara and I put together for you guys!

Magic: Legends

Developer: Cryptic Studios
Publisher: Perfect World Games
Release Date: Q2 2021
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

Magic: The Gathering is finally geting its own MMO. Magic: Legends takes all its lore from Magic: The Gathering, and adds its own RPG twist. Set in the planes of MTG, your role is to save the Magic Multiverse, no less.

From everything we know so far the game looks pretty good, though it also looks like one of those games that you have to play before making an opinion. The story sets the player on one of the several places of the Magic Multiverse, and it’s the player’s job to fight an ancient evil that is closing in.

There are 5 different classes to choose from:

  • Geomancer, who draws power from the earth to fight. Power include lava and stone attacks.
  • Mind mage, who possesses several psychic powers, including telekinesis.
  • Beastcaller, who fights with an axe and can summon animal companions.
  • Sanctifier, who is a sort of priest-like character.
  • Necromancer, who calls upon the dead to do the fighting.

Magic: Legends is still in closed alpha, and should release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Spring 2021. If you’re a Magic fan, you can already sign up for the beta.

Tribes of Midgard

Developer: Norsfell Games Inc.
Publisher: Gearbox Publishing
Release Date: 2021
Platforms: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

Tribes of Midgard is a co-op survival MMO inspired by Norse mythology. Players have to team up to defeat the invasion of giants during Ragnarök and protect the seed of Yggdrasil. During the day, you can roam around freely, gather resources to craft powerful items, and even build ramps and bridges to discover more of the map. But just like Minecraft or 7 Days to Die, the biggest threat emerges at night. Hordes of demons will try to attack your village, and they get harder to beat as time goes by.

I’m in love with Tribes of Midgard’s atmosphere. The pastel colors and cartoonish graphics make for a peaceful environment. Even if the game is packed with fights against Nordic giants, it’s still a great game to unwind with. Friendly tip: don’t attack the boars, or your fate will be the same as after attacking a chicken in The Legend of Zelda.

Zenith MMO

Developer: Ramen VR
Publisher: TribeVR Inc.
Release Date: 2021
Platforms: PlayStation VR, PC

Zenith is a futuristic MMO made especially for VR. It turns immersion up a notch, taking players one step closer to the setting of Ready Player One.

Convallaria

Developer: Loong Force

Release Date: 2021
Platforms: PlayStation 4

Convallaria is a mix between the ordinary MMO and a shooter game, and comes with the promise of a very unique gaming experience.

There aren’t many details on the story of the game itself, all we know is that it will take place in a fictional world, where players can team up and play together or against each other, in PvE and PvP.

Elite Dangerous Odyssey

Elite Dangerous Odyssey is the MMO version of the space adventure game Elite Dangerous. Initially released in 2014, this solo game let you explore the Milky Way as an open-world – a dream come true for space lovers. In 2021 with Elite Dangerous Odyssey, not only you can roam freely on realistic planets and shoot their life forms dead, but now you can also interact with other players. And shoot them afterward, if you still want to.

From the in-game footage you can see above, Elite Dangerous Odyssey is showing off some great-looking graphics. Think about the best space game you played lately, like No Man’s Sky. Now add tactical combat and a bunch of other players. The outcome should be close to what Elite Dangerous Odyssey promises.

Chrono Odyssey

Developer: Npixel Co, Gameplex Co.
Publisher: Npixel Co.
Release Date: TBA
Platforms: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PC, iOS, Android

Chrono Odyssey is described as a fantasy MMORPG that is rumored to take place in all of time and space, where members of a special organization by the name of Idraiginn are doing their best to wage war against 12 powerful Gods. The trailer features an amazing world, full of beasts and gigantic monsters, awesome landscapes, and a very broad list of player classes.

Chrono Odyssey should be available to MMO players on PlayStation in 2021, with a full release scheduled in 2022. The game will not only launch on next-gen consoles, but also on iOS and Android. Take that as you will.

Crimson Desert

Developer: Pearl Abyss
Publisher: Pearl Abyss
Release Date: Winter 2021
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X

Crimson Desert is the jewel of PlayStation MMO releases for 2021, at least from our point of view. It looks absolutely gorgeous. The many landscapes of the game give off a very Game of Thrones vibe, and gameplay-wise it seems pretty similar to Ghost of Tsushima. It’s an open-world game and it’s all about a “world with no heroes”. We don’t know about you guys, but we can definitely get behind that idea.

So Crimson Desert looks really nice, and promises good gameplay. The only remaining question would be about its multiplayer side. The recent videos of the game are geared toward the main story, leaving little to no information about the multiplayer mode.

Temtem

Developer: Crema
Publisher: Humble Bundle
Release Date: 2021
Platforms: Microsoft Windows PlayStation 5 Nintendo Switch Xbox Series X/S

Temtem is an upcoming MMO for several platforms and it is largely inspired by the Pokemon series. The game is all about exploring the world and capturing Temtem creatures, and then training them for combat against other NPC or players’ Temtem.

The players start off the game as a novice Temtem tamer who is trying to up their life, all the while an evil organization is planning to take control of the islands. The early access was released back in December 2020, but the final version is set to come out this year.
