Many of the so called titans of the MMO genre are losing subscribers everyday and they are heading somewhere right?  Many games can hold your attention for a short time, but a great MMORPG will hold your attention and keep you playing for weeks, months and years.  Thanksfully, the industry is ever changing and new and old developer's alike are trying to come up with the 'next big thing'.  Hopefully we will see some of those in the near future.

Anyways, enough of that, this is a list of some of the top MMORPG games that I am looking forward to in 2013 and beyond.  Join me shall you?

5. Pathfinder Online

Pathfinder Online is still very much in development, but, from what I can tell, it has a lot of stuff going for itself.  The setting may be a fairly standard 'high fantasy' style, but what i'm most intrigued about is the trading system.  Now, i'm sure there are many details that still will be revealed, but from what we can tell at this point, it will allow players to create items, consumables, fortifications, settlements and kingdoms.  Really?  Player led kingdoms that can grow from the ground up and war against one another and NPC factions?  Now that makes it feel like more than just a game, the development team is creating a world.

 

9. Blade & Soul

Blade & Soul has seemed to languish in development hell for years.  But, it still appears to be a very promising MMO.  From the looks of it, it's going to have a very rapid-fire combat system with gorgeus graphics built on the Unreal Engine 3.  But of course, these could just be words.  Lots of developers like to throw fancy words at us.  If everything goes according to plan though, players will be able to master different styles of Japanese martial arts.  Be able to run along walls, utilize the wind and feel the essence of their unique fighting styles.

 

8. Age of Wushu

It seems recently that many of us in the west have replaced our romanticism of the medieval era with that of ancient Asia.  And why not?  I know Age of Wushu is actually being released now, or going through beta now, but still, it will be primarly played in 2013.  The game has a painstankingly beatuful design that can be seen everywhere, from in the towns, to the amazing landscapes.  This is another martial arts MMO that features no real level-up system.  Your character is free to learn anything and everything, and you can develop them any way you like.  One aspect I really like so far is the fact that your character is always in the world.  Even when you log out, your character will stay behind and perform as an NPC.

7. Archeage

Archeage is billed to be another open ended MMO.  The game has been in development for quite a while, since 2009, and will try something called free will.  What that means is that they will feature a completely player-run economy.  Players will have city and housing systems.  The world will evolve based on what the players do.  A truly organic experience for some.  I've heard of games trying to do this in the past, with little success, so i'm intrigued at how this game plays out.  Stay tuned.

 

6.  The Repopulation

The Repopulation will continue along a trend of truly awesome looking sandbox MMOs.  The game will be completely open ended, with no leveling system and an advancement system that is based off of any  of the 75 different skills.  The game will have a faction-based PvP system, but players will not be forced to join any of the factions and fight.  If you so desire, you can play by yourself and craft and develop new technologies, or help design and construct towns and cities.  They also plan on utilizing both a first person mode, and an RPG mode.

I'll be back with my next 5 games soon.  Just need time to organize my thoughts.  Until then, i'll be checking out a few free MMORPG games and getting ready for 2013!
