Ryzom is set in a science-fiction universe and in addition to its story, it also boasts crisp graphics and a loyal and supportive community. The game also boasts PvP and is on the verge of a revolutionary expansion called "The Ryzom Ring". In this expansion, players will be able to take story-telling to the next level as they introduce player-created content tools.

They were followed by Anarchy Online at 18%, Asheron's Call at 15% and Star Wars Galaxies at 14%.
