March 27, 2023

If you're a fan of starting new MMORPGs and pouring hundreds of hours into them, then you may want to check out these new and upcoming MMORPG to be released (hopefully!) soon!

Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games are a special type of game that keep players invested for hundreds of hours at a time. And there is something rather exciting about playing in a brand new world with a bunch of other clueless players for the first time as a new MMORPG launches.

If that sounds like paradise to you, then you'll want to check out these upcoming MMORPGs that are currently under development.



Developed by Digital Extremes, Soulframe is a brand new MMORPG that is currently in early development. Soulframe's focus is on exploration, themes of nature and restoration. Currently, an early-look trailer has released, showcasing an intriguing backdrop to a new world that features both wild beasts, armor-plated foes and magical swords allowing you to turn them all to stone. The trailer is 5 minutes long, and is well worth a look to get a sense of the scale this MMORPG will attempt to bring to the table.

The game's developers are no strangers to the gaming world, having also developed the successful Warframe action RPG.

If you want to follow along with Soulframe's development, you can check out their YouTube channel where they have already released a number of developer vlogs on the game's progress!

Wonderers: Eternal World

Eternal World

Wonderers: Eternal World is the next MMORPG on our list of games to look out for and it has already announced that CBT testing will be coming soon! The game is being developed by Smilegate, the publisher behind LostArk MMORPG. The game features a fairytale world that players can dive into, with chibi-like character customization and a 3D Top down view. The game's trailer puts a lot of focus on mini-games that you'll be able to play- but there is also gameplay footage of combat.

They also mention that the choices you make will affect your gameplay, so hopefully that means you can customize your gameplay experience to be more geared towards what you enjoy (i.e. battling!).
