2021 will be a fantastic year for MMO * fans, says Leya from our sister site MeinMMO – and she’s right, because after a long dry spell, exciting online role-playing games are finally appearing again.
We promptly invited Leya to the GameStar podcast and brought in Youtuber Entenburg, who was on his recommended channel is regularly immersed in upcoming MMOs and online games.
Missed episode? Here is an overview of all podcast episodes
Leya and Entenburg talk to Michael Graf about the following games:
New World: What can Amazon’s fate game actually tear? Is it going to be an MMO that will appeal to both story and PvP fans, or will it eventually get caught between all stools?
Ashes of Creation: A highly interesting sandbox RPG, for two reasons. Firstly, the world should adapt to the actions of the players, and secondly, there is an illustrious multimillionaire behind it.
Lost Ark: The top view MMO looks like Diablo at first glance, but there is much more to it – for Leya Lost Ark is already “the game that Diablo 4 would like to be”.
Crowfall: The crowdfunding project developed by MMO veterans follows the motto »What if WoW had never been released?«, But still has a lot of work to do.
- Swords of Legends Online: If you follow the common clichés about Asian MMOs, the MMO doesn’t look so Asian at all, but rather like a classic theme park MMO à la World of Warcraft.
- Elyon: Another hope from Asian, which is especially exciting because of its developer. It comes from Bluehole, the makers of TERA and Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds!
Crimson Desert: One of the most interesting MMOs for classic GameStar visitors, because it relies primarily on a strong single player campaign in a beautiful open world.
Which MMO appeals to which type of player and which potential strengths – and weaknesses – are in the new worlds, you can hear from Leya and Entenburg in the podcast.
