9 Fresh MMORPGs Coming in 2021 and Beyond

The year 2020 was not much of a year and we want to forget it already. Since the bar is so low, there's a good chance that the coming months will be much more satisfying also in terms of new MMORPG releases. Because you can't postpone them indefinitely!

Crimson Desert

  1. How long we've been waiting: 2 years
  2. When it's coming: late 2021
  3. Distinguishing features: dynamic combat, large-scale PvP, single player/co-op story campaign

The creators of Black Desert are preparing another MMORPG. This time we will go to the eponymous Crimson Desert, dubbed a real revolution in the genre (although by the devs). They have declared they'll be able to deliver visuals far beyond what they presented in the first game, and they intend to prove that MMORPGs can have an addictive and engaging storyline campaign.

And there may be some credibility to their words, as the very beginning of Crimson Desert consists of a few hours of singleplayer/co-op campaign that introduces you to the game. The MMORPG part doesn't come in until after that. The crux of the multiplayer will be PvP skirmishes, but there will also be room for trading. Nevertheless, the community should prepare to participate in sieges and occupy areas.

There is also a place for the usual grind and boss fights, that is, elements known from Black Desert. However, and quite interestingly, Crimson Desert won't be directly related to the previously mentioned MMORPG.
