Top 10 MMORPGs in 2021 - The Best MMOs to Play in 2021

MMORPGs aren't just about World of Warcraft alone! There are quite a few games that are worthy competition for the venerable king, and we'll try to introduce them. Here's a list of the best MMOs!

3. The Elder Scrolls Online

  1. Business model: buy-to-play + microtransactions
  2. Platforms: PC, PS4, XOne, PS5, XSX,

The Elder Scrolls Online may not be Skyrim Online , but it does the job, too! It's true that I regularly complain about the creators focusing more on the RPG and multiplayer aspect than on the MMO, but in the end, this title comes out unscathed. Especially since it offers a huge world, a nice story, voiced dialogues, and scaling the environment to our level.

We can thus travel across Tamriel without fear that a region will be above our weight. Assuming we've bought the right DLC, of course and there are plenty of these. Another characteristic element of The Elder Scrolls Online is the combat system, which consists in performing quick and heavy attacks, as well as using skills. It doesn't sound bad on paper, but in practice, not everyone will like the proposed solution.

IN A NUTSHELL

Who's this game for? Players focused on exploration and story, who are not disturbed by the peculiar combat system and character development.

Is it regularly supported? Yes, through add-ons and DLCs.

Similar games: Age of Conan , The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim .

Is it pay-to-win? No, but the premium account provides quite a few bonuses.
