Games Like World of Warcraft in 2019

For more than a decade now World of Warcraft has dominated the MMORPG genre and helped shape the development of the entire genre. But nothing gold can stay. The bad news is that there are very few AAA MMORPGs being developed anymore. The good news is that there are still quite a few amazing ones out there you can play right now. Below is a list of games like World of Warcraft that you can download and jump into right now. It isn’t in any particular order, we wanted to mix in a variety of options to try to cover what everyone might be looking for. We did a similar list back in 2015 but felt it was time to give the topic another look.

 

Final Fantasy XIV

ffxiv anniversary

Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV) may very well be the best MMORPG that is currently available on the market. It has had three amazing expansions, the most recent being Shadowbringers in July 2019. Shadowbringers was praised by many fans of the game to be the best MMORPG expansion there has ever been. On Metacritic the expansion has a critic score of 91 (out of 100) and a user score of 8.9 (Out of 10). This puts it in the number one spot for best PC game of 2019 on Metacritic.

Something that makes FFXIV stand out from other MMORPGs is that you are able to level all classes and jobs on one character. So, if you’re the type of person who enjoys trying out everything you won’t have to roll up a new character to do it. On the other hand, if you like having a lot of alts FFXIV may not be for you. This is a dungeon-based game and getting through the storyline will require you to complete dungeons.

 

Tera

Tera is a fantasy MMORPG that came out in North America and Europe in 2012, then released on consoles worldwide in April 2018. It uses action combat and a non-target battle system. This basically means that you have to make sure you’ve got your enemy in front of you in the cross-hair cursor in order to execute an attack. For anyone who is used to the old fashioned tab targeting that is usually found in MMOs this can be a difficult hurdle to overcome. Those that do get past it enjoy Tera for its many unique and interesting classes and the constant updates that are coming to the game despite its age. It’s clear that Tera still has many more years of life left in it so don’t let its age scare you away.

 

Guild Wars 2

Guild Wars 2 is without a doubt the most beautiful MMORPG there has ever been. It is absolutely gorgeous and the developers at ArenaNet know it. Fashion is a big part of the Guild Wars 2 experience, so much so that the game has the nickname Fashion Wars. It is broadly considered a more casual friendly MMO than most but that doesn’t mean there aren’t challenges to be found. It’s a great game if you prefer to play your MMOs solo. The story is designed with a solo player in mind but there are still tons of opportunities for groups to play together too.

So far, Guild Wars 2 has had 2 expansions but it also gets content updates every 3 months. These include a brand new zone, another part in the ongoing story, and lots of beautiful weapon skins It also has a lively PvP scene with two different types of PvP to pick from.

 

Runescape

For many MMO players today Runescape was their first love. The game has been around since 2001, making it even older than World of Warcraft. But, just because it’s nearly 20 years old doesn’t mean it is slowing down or that it looks 20 year old. It has had a number of updates over the years as technology has advanced.

Runescape isn’t for everyone though. The game puts a big emphasis on grinding which can be really unattractive to a lot of people. A lot of people also say that the community isn’t very newbie friendly. Which can be quite difficult to overcome if you’re looking for a communal experience from your MMORPG.

 

Blade & Soul

Midnight Skypetal Plains Raid

Blade & Soul is sometimes called the World of Warcraft of Asia and despite its massive popularity in the East it rarely grabs headlines in the West. Which is unfortunate because it is a very good game that is a blast to play. It has been so popular in Asia that it had a 13 episode anime series adaptation. There is also an incredibly popular mobile version of the game. It stands out on this list for being more martial arts focused with classes like Kung Fu Master, Zen Archer, and Blade Master. If you’re looking for a completely unfamiliar MMORPG experience then give Blade & Soul a try.

 

Elder Scrolls Online

Despite its rough launch Elder Scrolls Online has gone on to become one of the most successful and most popular MMORPGs on the market right now. It is without a doubt one of the top 3 MMORPGs you can play right now. It is full of content that is accessible to both groups and solo players alike. It is still getting regular content updates with new expansions and DLC. For those familiar with Tamriel and the Elder Scrolls universe, the game takes place a millennium before Skyrim, 800 years before the events of Morrowind and Oblivion. If you’re looking for an MMORPG that is guaranteed to still have a long life ahead of itself then ESO may be the game for you. In a recent panel at PAX Australia ESO’s Creative Director said that Zenimax is planning to continue to support the game for a long time and that they have development plans through 2020 and beyond.

 

Rift

When it launched Rift was aiming to be a WoW killer and they weren’t shy about it with their advertising either. It is perhaps the most World of Warcraft like MMORPG that’s on the market without being a Chinese clone. Unfortunately it has had its share of struggles through the years and it has been relatively quiet since Gamigo bought it and developer Trion Worlds in October 2018. However, the core game and its expansions do still exist and it is all extremely playable. The playerbase may not be what it once was, but for a game that is 8 years old and has moved on to an entirely new developer it is still going strong.

ESO Update 20 Brings New Home Building Tools

We suspect that the real end game of The Elder Scrolls Online is furnishing and arranging one’s house, whether it’s something you got off the Crown Store or that depressing little room you get for free. ESO Update 20 is an important one for those housing raiders, then, as a couple of new tools to help folks build better homes have been introduced.

eso update 20

When we say “a couple tools”, we literally mean two, but those two tools are pretty impactful. First is an Undo and Redo function that allows you to instantly revert or reapply anything you’ve done. A total of 200 previous steps backwards can be taken in a session, and it’ll even return a removed housing item to your inventory.

The second function is Item Linking, which lets you tie “child” items to a “parent” item. This lets you do things like arrange items on to a tabletop, link those items to the table, and then move the entire group around by moving the table. 50 child items can be linked to a single parent item, and those child items can even be linked to other items to create an entire sub-group.

Finally, a running History of all of the changes you’ve made to your house will be visible in a new UI, letting you keep track of what the heck happened to make that rug look so out of place, ugh.

Our Thoughts

Being a WildSar player, I can personally say that improved housing tools are a wonderful thing and so I’m certainly happy for the players of ESO to see these features arrive. We’re looking forward to seeing what sorts of cozy little nooks players will put together with these features.

ESO: Murkmire Gets Release Dates and Prologue Quests

The time for the next Elder Scrolls Online DLC is nigh. The Murkmire release dates has been officially unveiled for the PC and console versions, along with the arrival of prologue quests to pad the time between now and launch.

murkmire release dates

PC players can expect the Murkmire DLC to arrive on Monday, October 22nd, while PS4 and Xbox One players will get their DLC on Tuesday, November 6th. Until then, players can take up some prologue quests to get themselves prepared.

To get started, players have to head to the Crown Store to pick up the first quest for free or seek out the Cyrodilic Collections “Help Wanted” posters found in Vulkhel Guard, Daggerfall, or Davon’s Watch. These quests task you with helping Concordia Mercius and Cyrodilic Collections with recovering looted Argoniean relics, while learning about the Black Marsh and the dangers awaiting in Murkmire along the way.

When the prologue’s story quests have been completed, you’ll get a Murkmire Grave-Stake memento. Clearing one of the six new daily prologue quests will also grant a reward box with several Murkmire-themed items, including one of seven fragments needed to create the Swamp Jelly pet.

Incidentally, the Murkmire DLC is being offered for free as part of a daily login campaign. Players must login for a total of 24 days in November to earn Murkmire as a Daily Reward.

Our Thoughts

While these prologue quests almost sound like an advertisement for the DLC on paper, we’re glad to know that there’s some manner of reward and lore surrounding these new events. Here’s hoping that these prologue quests are entertaining enough to pad the time between now and Murkmire’s launch!

ESO: Murkmire’s Blackrose Prison is the Next PvE Survival Arena

The Elder Scrolls Online is throwing you in lockup. No, it’s not because you were stealing every possible piece of random crap from every single barrel, bag and crate you surveyed. It’s the Blackrose Prison, the next four-player arena survival instance coming with Murkmire.

blackrose prison

Blackrose Prison consists of five arenas with five waves of various enemies including swamp beasties, Imperial deserters, vampires and Blackguards. Each arena will also culminate in an “especially challenging” boss fight. On top of all that, players will also have environmental traps to contend with.

It’s not all death and destruction, though. The new instance will introduce four new Sigils that grant your party powerful buffs. These Sigils work much like the ones in Maelstrom Arena, though using these Sigils will have an effect on your team’s Veteran Leaderboard score.

Naturally, there’s more than a spot on a leaderboard waiting as a reward for clearing through the prison. Each boss in the instance will drop parts of the zone-specific sets players can earn in Murkmire, and those who complete the Blackrose Prison will get unique Blackrose weapons. There’s also Perfected versions of those weapons and a unique skin to earn for clearing the instance in Veteran mode.

Our Thoughts

The comparisons to other PvE arena-style instances is certainly standing out to us, but then again if they’re fun and rewarding, what’s the harm in seeing more of the same? Do you think this new instance will be fun, or is it getting a bit too repetitive for your tastes?

MMO Money: 16 Countries to Investigate Lootboxes and More China Trouble

There are really only two big news stories from the last week in gaming business. The biggest story is the ongoing lootbox controversy and the fact that 16 countries have now signed a declaration to investigate lootboxes and skin gambling, and news on the Chinese regulation of new games entering the market is grim as it looks like it could continue for some time to come. Plus, there’s a surprise in this week’s UK gaming charts as an MMORPG that is several years old enters the top 10. Find all of that below in this week’s MMO Money.

 

China’s Freeze on New Games May Continue Another 4-6 Months

There’s more bad news this week for Tencent and in fact, any game company hoping to break into the Chinese games market from outside of China. It looks as though the government mandated freeze on new games may continue another 4-6 months. It began in March as the government announced they would be implementing new procedures and systems for games entering their market but these things take time to create. In the meantime, there has been a massive reduction in the number of new foreign made games released in China. Part of the reason they’ve cited for not approving new games has been a recommendation from the Ministry of Education who suggest that limiting games and the amount of time young people can play them may reduce child myopia. This, despite there being no scientific proof that looking at a screen all day causes myopia.

So far this hasn’t had a massive impact on larger publishers like Tencent and Netease. Yes, Tencent lost billions in its market value, but it still only amounted to a small percentage of their worth. Larger companies like this will have had permission for games well in advance of their release and they’re still banking on those, but the longer this hold continues the fewer games they will have left to release in China. That lack of growth will end up impacting the bottom line of these companies in a big way. The Chinese market is already starting to feel the effects too, as market growth is down to just 5% from 30% at the same time last year.

UK Charts

The Elder Scrolls Online

This week The Elder Scrolls Online was the big surprise on the charts. It entered the charts at number 8 ahead of the release of their latest DLC Murkmire. At the same time, GTA V has dropped down a few places to number 6. PUBG was also pushed down to 11 from 9. Ultimately, Spider-Man managed to keep the number one spot for another week, which isn’t surprising at all given how universally loved it is. Check out the full top 10 below.

This Week Game Last Week
1 Spider-Man 1
2 Shadow of the Tomb Raider New Entry
3 NBA 2K19 New Entry

Lootboxes

Just when it seemed like we might be able to stop talking about lootboxes because news was slowing to a complete standstill on that front, it jumps back up to be the center of attention again. Since the last MMO Money was released, we’ve had three different stories coming from Europe about lootboxes.

The first one is actually a continuation from last week. Belgium has officially started criminal investigations into EA’s noncompliance with the country’s gambling laws. EA has continued to maintain that lootboxes aren’t gambling, which seems like a pretty massive gamble on EA’s part. We’ll just have to wait and see how things turn out in Belgium.

Just a couple of days later researchers in the UK identified a link between lootboxes and gambling. They surveyed adults playing 10 major games with lootboxes and found there is an important relationship between problem gambling and the use of lootboxes. The more severe a participant’s gambling problem, the more money they spent on lootboxes. They also go on to say the following:

“However, regardless of the direction of causality, the games industry faces a crisis of conscience. Industry bodies such as the ESRB can no longer claim that there is little evidence of a link between problem gambling and loot box use. We call on individual companies within the games industry to remove loot boxes from their products. When companies include loot boxes in their games, our results suggest that they are either profiting from problem gambling or causing problem gambling. Loot boxes have no place in video gaming culture. We also follow Drummond and Sauer in recommending that ratings agencies incorporate additional parental advisories into games that feature loot boxes. We recommend that games with loot boxes are restricted to players of legal gambling age. Given the severity of the link seen here we also strongly recommend that relevant authorities restrict access to loot boxes as if they were a form of gambling.”

Your move EA.

Finally, 15 member nations of the 2018 Gambling Regulators European Forum signed a declaration in which they expressed concern over third-party game related betting and skin-gambling sites, as well as the potential for lootbox models to bleed over into legitimate gambling. This is mostly a declaration stating that they intend to begin investigating lootbox regulation. The declaration was signed by the 15 nations that take part in the forum, which are Austria, Czech Republic, France, Gibraltar, Ireland, Isle of Man, Jersey, Latvia, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Washington State, and the UK. Finland also joined in the signing of this declaration, though they aren’t involved in the forum. This could represent a major shift in lootbox regulation just as it seemed like the whole issue was dying out. It’s going to be interesting watching this story develop over the coming months, and could finally mean the big change so many consumers have been hoping for. Everyone cross your fingers!

And no, I don’t know why the United States has a representative on the Gambling Regulators European Forum, I’m still trying to work that out myself.

ESO Community Manager’s Twitter Account Hacked

Those who follow The Elder Scrolls Online likely also follow a number of ESO community manager Twitter accounts. One such account, owned by Gina Bruno, was apparently hacked by an extremely bored individual, who then began to post extremely spurious tweets on her behalf.

eso community manager twitter

Bruno’s Twitter account erupted last night in a series of racially charged tweets and at least one extremely NSFW image. Among the tweets – and one that caught the attention of the game’s playerbase – was one claiming that Bruno was leaving Bethesda as a result of being sexually assaulted.

Bruno immediately responded to a thread highlighting the accusation in the game’s forums, confirming that her account had been compromised. “Hi everyone, thank you for the concern. I just want to say this is not true,” wrote Bruno. “I’m working with Twitter to regain ownership, but in the meantime, anything being posted in the past hour or so is not me.”

Normally we provide source links, but in this case we’ll be leaving at least Bruno’s current Twitter link out of the list. If you must click through, be warned that there are extremely upsetting things to be found that are NSFW. Or not safe for play. Or life. Or anyone with higher brain functions.

Our Thoughts

We appreciate Ms. Bruno’s response to this matter and hope that her Twitter is cleared in short order. Some people just don’t have anything better to do with their lives, we guess.

ESO Wades through the Murkmire and Update 20

Hope you don’t mind getting your feet dirty, because The Elder Scrolls Online is headed for the swamp in its next update. An ESO Murkmire developer preview has offered a closer look at the MMORPG’s next DLC as well as features coming in the game’s 20th update.

eso murkmire developer preview

Murkmire will open up a new zone in the southern reaches of the Black Marsh, where players can expect to find crumbling Imperial ruins, dense jungles, and the Argonians and their relationship with the Hist trees. Of course, there’s more to do than just sightseeing – a lost artifact fuels the narrative of Murkmire, and it will be up to players to join with the local Argonians to find it.

The new DLC will also open up a four-player leaderboard arena which seeks to test your team’s mettle through five stages. Making your way through the Arena will reward players with unique items, like a greatsword that improves the Uppercut ability or new item sets.

For those not interested in buying DLC, there’s a few intriguing new things coming with Update 20. The Alliance War map will now feature destructible bridges and Milegates, along with new alternate nearby routes and new Outposts. There will also be some quality-of-life improvements and combat adjustments as per the usual.

Our Thoughts

It’s actually kind of funny. The more I think about what lore I know from the Elder Scrolls universe, the more I realize I know almost next to nothing about the Argonians. So ideally this new DLC will bring a number of interesting revelations. Also, we certainly hope it brings enjoyable things for players to do, naturally.

Wolfhunter and Update 19 Go Live in The Elder Scrolls Online

Are you ready to hunt some werewolves? We certainly hope so, because the Wolfhunter DLC release for The Elder Scrolls Online pretty much infers as much in its title and it’d be really weird to be unprepared for that. Yes, the game’s latest DLC pack and its 19th overall update are live starting today.

wolfhunter dlc release

The wolf-loaded new DLC will introduce two new dungeons to the MMORPG in the form of Moon Hunter Keep and March of Sacrifices. In Moon Hunter Keep, players will need to take back the titular location from the werewolves that hold it and their elder Vykosa; and in March of Sacrifices, players enter the realm of the Daedric prince Hircine himself to compete in his Great Hunt.

If you’re not interested in paid content, Update 19 has you covered. The latest update brings a number of improvements to the Werewolf skill line; allows players to respec individual abilities instead of rebuilding from scratch; and adds the new Istirus Outpost PvP battleground.

The Wolfhunter update is live now for PC and is due to console players on August 28th. All of the update’s details can be read in the patch notes.

Our Thoughts

There’s not a whole lot we can elaborate on here, in all honesty, so we’ll just do our usual well-wishes to the fans of ESO and hope that these new updates to both the base game and the DLC content is enjoyable.

QuakeCon 2018: ESO Trailers, Quake Champions Free to Play, and Doom Eternal Invasions

The reveals for QuakeCon 2018 were fast and thick this year with a number of reveals for Bethesda’s lineup of games. Of specific interest to those in the multiplayer sphere is word of the new Doom Eternal’s multiplayer component; trailers for the latest ESO DLC packs; and the reveal of Quake Champions going fully free to play.

quakecon 2018

First thing’s first: Quake Champions has decided to drop the free trial thing and is now free to play, though with some important restrictions; free players will have access to one Champion and standard matchmaking, with the option to buy individual Champions for real-world money. Alternatively, there’s two packs that unlock more options. Quake Champions has also unleashed its latest character, the Death Knight.

Next up is The Elder Scrolls Online, which has offered up two new trailers for the MMO’s Wolfhunter and Murkmire DLCs. In addition, it was announced via Twitter that subscribers will be getting 1650 Crowns per month and access to exclusive Crown Store offers once Murkmire releases. You can watch the trailer for Wolfhunter here and the Murkmire trailer here.

Finally, Doom Eternal, the sequel to the popular 2016 Doom reboot, is getting a taste of multiplayer in the form of Invasions, which will let players take control of demons and attack other people’s campaigns. More information on this is expected to come later, but the devs have said in the livestream that there are options that will allow players to turn the feature off if they wish.

Our Thoughts

That was a pretty loaded QuakeCon! We are extremely curious to know more about the new ESO DLCs and passing curious about Doom Eternal’s Invasion mechanic, but we are a bit let down by the limitations on Quake Champions’ free to play scheme. Hopefully they’ll open those taps up a bit more.
