Lost Ark

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Smilegate
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

Lost Ark is another victim of insane hype and long delays. The game footage of this Action MMORPG looked so good that you couldn't wait to play it, but that was the problem. You couldn't! Well, until now, as Smilegate finally launches an open beta test at the end of 2018 with a possible release of Lost Ark in 2019.

\n

The Korean game combines all the best aspects of the MMORPG genre and provides a smooth experience of interwoven cutscenes and action sequences. The graphics looks amazing even if it utilizes Unreal Ungine 3, which means only good things for players who don't have high-end PCs.

\n

So let's keep our fingers crossed for Smilegate to finally give us Lost Ark next year in all its glory.

Project TL

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Team TL
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

Lineage 3 or Lineage Eternal has been in development for many years. Last year the developer changed the title of the game to Project TL, and plans to start beta testing at the end of 2018.

\n

This will be the first time, when players all over the world will be able to finally play the game, which was hyped like no other MMO before. For those who are not in the know, Project TL is an isometric Action MMORPG with orcs, elves, and wizards.

\n

The developer promises a deep combat system with realistic physics, and an interactive world, in which every object will have an impact on your gameplay. In addition, it will have a dynamic weather system, landscape changes and destructible environments.

Age Of Wushu 2

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Snail
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

Here is one more martial arts MMORPG from China, this time it's a sequel to an already established Age of Wushu franchise. The new game will utilize Unreal Engine 4 and will even have the VR mode for exploration. Unfortunately, players will have to take their VR headsets off during combat.

\n

The Chinese developer also introduced a new PvP system, where the typical elements such as health and power gauges will be completely absent. Players will have to figure out the state of their opponents by their behavior during the combat.

\n

This definitely sounds interesting and may introduce a whole new sub-genre of MMO fighting games.

Justice

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Netease
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

If you've been following the development of another martial arts MMO, titled Revelation, then you probably heard about Justice already. It's a new MMORPG from the same developer, which is focused on two factions that fight each other time from time.

\n

PvE system focuses on boss battles and world exploration, while PvP offers no safe zones, meaning that battles may occur anywhere in the game. However, the developer has confirmed that there will be special PvP arenas present in the game as well.

There will be seven classes in total, where each class will have its own special combos and storyline.

Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Visionary Realms
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen is a spiritual successor to such MMORPGs like EverQuest and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. It is set in an open fantasy world of Terminus inhabited by all sorts of heroes, deities and enemies.

\n

The story of Pantheon will unfold itself to a player gradually as he or she progresses through the world. The developer says that the game will be more of a sandbox-style RPG rather than your typical fetch-quest RPG. But there will be quests nonetheless, although it will not be that easy to get them in the first place.

\n

It looks like the game will have a rather high level of difficulty, deep lore, and interesting gameplay mechanics.

Kingdom Under Fire II

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Blueside
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC, PS4
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

KUF2 is probably one of the most delayed MMO projects in the history of gaming. It was first announced in 2008 and since then the developer kept pushing the release date each year. Since April 2018 KUF2 has been in the open beta stage, which may hint on the actual release date sometime in 2019.

\n

The game is mainly focused on massive battles that will take place on different locations and servers. Each such location will be able to host only a few players at once, but each player will have access to a huge army, which he or she will have to control throughout the entire battle.

Camelot Unchained

\n
    \n
  • Developer: City State Entertainment
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

Camelot Unchained is a sequel to the highly-praised MMORPG from 2002 Dark Age of Camelot. This time the conflict will take place between the Irish Celts led by King Arthur on one side, the Vikings on the other, and the tribe of Nuada on the third front.

\n

Players should expect a lot of manual labor, as they will have to create their own weapons and armor from scratch. The crafting system must be incredible in Camelot Unchained, since you will not be able to buy anything from the NPCs.

\n

Each kingdom will have its own classes with a vast number of customization tools. The proprietary Unchained engine will allow for massive battles to take place on one server, but there is no official info on how many players will be able to take part in them yet.

Dual Universe

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Novaquark
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

Dual Universe offers gamers the opportunity to travel through the universe and visit any planets they want with no restrictions whatsoever. From the story point of view, humanity was forced to explore other planets after the apocalyptic event that destroyed the entire Solar System.

\n

As you already guessed, colonizing new planets is the main goal of Dual Universe. As usual, the players will have to learn new skills and abilities, but since Dual Universe is a sandbox MMO, you can modify your world and skill tree as much as you want.

\n

Players will be able to build cities and entire spaceports, trade resources and design their own space arks. If you enjoy games like EVE Online and Star Citizen, then Dual Universe should definitely be in your list of the best upcoming MMOs 2019.

New World

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Amazon Game Studios
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

New World is set in the late 17th century North America, a period during the colonization of the continent. The players will have a complete freedom of choice. They will decide how they want to build their cities and which enemies they want to destroy.

\n

But this is not a realistic historical MMO as it will involve fantastic creatures that roam the valleys and forests of New World. Some of them will be so powerful that players will have to cooperate in order to protect themselves and their settlements.

\n

The game will also feature dynamic season and weather systems, and of course, day and night cycles. The developer promises that New World will be able to host up to 500 players at once.

Mavericks: Proving Grounds

\n
    \n
  • Developer: Automaton
  • \n
  • Platforms: PC
  • \n
  • Release date: TBA 2019
  • \n
\n

Here is a brand new project by Automaton Studios, which developed a cooperative horro game Deceit. Mavericks is targeted specifically at gamers who love playing Battle Royale games, such as Playerunknown's Battlegrounds.

\n

But this time the British developer offers something slightly different. Mavericks will have a permanent world for 1000 players, which will serve as a PvP ground for 400 people. Reportedly, the in-game world will have 12 square kilometers, which is more than enough for any Battle Royale game.

\n

Additionally, Mavericks: Proving Grounds will have plenty of destructible objects, wild animals, dynamic weather, footprints, etc. It will include a rather complex character development system and an entire social hub of its own.

\n

During this year's E3 conference Ubisoft, the game's publisher, officially announced that this sequel's storyline will follow the events of the first game, which take place seven months later.

\n

As for the mechanics, Tom Clancy's The Division 2 will focus on cooperative gameplay, including Raids, which can be accomplished with up to 8 players. The developer also stated that it will pay a lot more attention to the endgame content this time around.

Once MMO games were truly special, and the reason was that there were only a few of them around. These days there are so many MMO games out there that it's really hard to find something truly innovative and groundbreaking. That is also the reason why gamers prefer to return to their old favorites, such as World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy Online, rather than subscribe to any other new MMOs.

\n

However, it looks like MMOs coming out in 2019 may change this trend, as there is a number of truly exciting new MMO titles scheduled for the next year. Most of them are MMORPGs, but others explore a more exciting world of Battle Royale shooters, which isn't surprising at all, as everybody wants that sweet piece of PUBG's pie.

What it Offers
\n

Pantheon is set on the fantasy world of Terminus, where many diverse civilizations, deities, and fantastic creatures rule. The world is designed to be challenging with tough monsters, plenty of exploration, and a reliance on friends and community. The planned weather system and enchanted areas add a survival element to the game not often found in MMOs. 

\n
What Makes it Different
\n

Death is meaningful. High-level characters can "retire" and pass a portion of their skills onto their children. Rare spells and items can only be found in unique locations, and can be locked behind an event. Visionary Realms is reinforcing an emphasis on group play by planning AI NPCs and player-run dungeons and regions.

Ashes of Creation

What it Offers
\n

Ashes of Creation promises a world "built to react to the actions of [the] players." Land can be developed anywhere and can be specialized for a certain purpose. There are many custom skills and abilities that ensure 64 unique classes. And there are multiple quest types that can change in real time. Players can fight in dungeons, raids, large-scale castle sieges, city defenses and assaults, and arena combat. 

\n
What Makes it Different
\n

The world is planned to be highly interactive. Intrepid Studios' Node System will control how the world is developed. This system will split the map into four distinct sections: Military, Divine, Economic, and Scientific. The many skill and combat choices will allow every player to thrive. Griefers in the open world are not expected to be a problem because of the game's in-depth flagging system. 

\n
How to Get Involved
\n

There will be a Kickstarter campaign for Ashes of Creation in approximately three to five weeks. There will be a countdown on the official website once the Kickstarter is two weeks away. Register your account now to stay updated on the Kickstarter and to begin participating in the forums.

New MMOs are announced and released constantly. The genre is full of unoriginal World of Warcraft clones and overambitious or money-hungry developers who promise to produce an MMO to be proud of and usually fall short. 

\n

That is the fear, of course: that a game can sound fantastic on paper, but it's unlikely to ever deliver. If a game does release, it may be after years of setbacks and crowdfunding. And still, it can still be underwhelming. There can still be empty promises.

\n

I get it. We're all afraid of getting our wallets emptied and our dreams dashed one more time for supporting or simply hoping for that one game that's going to change everything. But there's still hope for the MMO genre.

\n

Let us show you why with these eight upcoming MMOs you should definitely be watching.
