MMORPGs have been getting a lot of love lately and for good reason too: they are incredibly fun and offer players the most immersive experiences possible. Plus, you get to explore huge open worlds, meet other players, and be part of a community. I’m sharing with you guys my list of awesome fantasy MMORPGs for mobile to play at the moment!
Rangers of Oblivion
Rangers of Oblivion has been my latest addiction. It came out in 2019 and I think it makes for a pretty good fantasy MMORPG, and let me tell you why.
First of all, it really reminds me of the Monster Hunter franchise games and, as a Monster Hunter World player, I am naturally drawn to Rangers of Oblivion. There are hundreds of different creatures, a huge open world in which to look for them in, and a pretty good player base, so you will never find yourself playing alone.
Lineage 2: Revolution
Anyone who’s played Lineage 2 on PC will see a lot of resemblance in this game, which in my opinion is a good thing, especially for PvP players. I mean, players in Lineage 2: Revolution are able to have open-world battles with up to 200 participants, and there’s also the option to fight in 50v50 or 20v20 battle modes. And if PvP is not your thing, then know there are also guild and clan parties, where players gang up to defeat big bads.
Much like other MMORPGs, there are a bunch of different classes and a few races, from Humans to Elves to Dwarves. The graphics of the mobile version are pretty great, too.
However, there is one huge downside to the PvP in Lineage 2: Revolution: it is decidedly pay-to-win. You can play the game easily enough and there is a lot of stuff to do, but it’ll be pretty hard to beat players who invest actual money in it.
This has been the most disappointing part about the game, as I know that no matter how hard I play the game, I’ll never be able to keep up with the cash players, who will always have better gear and level up at a much faster rate than me. Then again, if that doesn’t really bother you, by all means go for it!
Grim Soul: Dark Fantasy Survival
On a more dark fantasy side, we have Grim Soul: Dark Fantasy Survival. This game came out in 2018 and it’s very fun. It’s different from the usual MMORPG, and you don’t get to see other players early in the game – or you do, but they’re usually on Auto mode, so it doesn’t really count – but I definitely feel like it belongs on this list.
The idea of the game is, well, to survive the soul reaper plague that has covered the entire province with hordes of undead. You survive by creating your own lair, crafting armor and weapons to protect yourself, gathering resources and food, and of course, fighting epic battles every now and then.
Open world, massive questline, co-op battles, and even PvP. This describes a lot of MMORPGs and it also describes Talion.
Talion is a 2020 MMORPG with a lot of PvP, from faction vs faction to realm vs realm. My favorite part about this game is the Occupy mode, in which players play to capture a point and get to use catapults on each other. It kind of reminds me of Conquerors Blade in that regard, which is pretty cool, in my opinion.
The story is pretty interesting too. Players are tasked with saving the world of Nar from demons who are trying to claim it and destroy anyone in their way.
I also enjoy the player-driven in-game economy! But like any other game, it comes with certain disadvantages, like the fact that it’s an auto-play MMORPG. I have never been a fan of that, and it definitely discouraged me a bit in the beginning. But if you can get past that, the game becomes quite enjoyable.
This is one of my favorite fantasy MMORPGs on mobile, as it resembles a game I like quite a lot: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
The graphics in Evil Lands are not quite out-of-this-world, but they’re pleasant enough. Gameplay-wise, I love the cooperative mode. There are a few classes to choose from – warrior, sorceress, and assassin – and then you’re off to explore the magic open world of the game.
I really enjoy the dungeon-like zones, with monsters at every corner and loads of loot to collect. But the best part really is the co-op, especially if you manage to convince some some friends to tag along.
Raid: Shadow Legends
Onto the more RPG side of MMORPGs, we have Raid: Shadow Legends, and no, we are not getting paid to tell you about it. The game revolves around a Dark Lord who grows stronger every day and tries to take over everything, and players are supposed to fight against that.
Memes aside, Raid: Shadow Legends has a lot to offer for a mobile MMORPG. The game has a lot of tactical fighting, and even a PvP arena – hurray! Players get to fight against each other to win some awesome new gear. There’s also a lot of PvE as well, which mostly revolves around timing your skills against various opponents.
I confess the various mechanics and menus might be a bit overwhelming at first, but once you get the hang of it, it’s easy-peasy lemon-squeezy.
