Mobile MMORPGS are the real deal, raking in profits that in 2020, even their PC counterparts cannot match. The mobile platform is a cash-cow especially in the East where mobile MMOs are spawning literally every week on both the iOS Appstore and Google Play. So what are the hottest mobile MMO titles that players are talking about and looking forward to?
Developed by Virtual Realms, Warhammer: Odyssey is a full 3D mobile MMORPG based on the Warhammer IP. The game is set in a very familiar timeline and will feature iconic locations, characters and classes from the Warhammer Universe. To-date, the studio has only shared brief teasers of the walk animations and environments in landscapes and cities, but no gameplay footage or combat has emerged.
Classic MMORPG systems and mechanics will be available too – from guilds, to crafting and more, the studio says that there will be a good mix of PvE and PvP to offer something for everyone. Warhammer: Odyssey doesn’t have a release date at the moment, but a test phase is expected early this year.
Developed by NetEase Games in conjunction with CCP Games, EVE Echoes is a brand-new sci-fi MMO game set in an alternate universe of New Eden that brings the authentic EVE Online experience to mobile devices. In addition to retaining EVE’s signature gameplay mechanics, EVE Echoes also includes basic tutorials for new players to advance and enhance their space-faring experience. EVE Echoes is dedicated to bringing the enormous universe of EVE to mobile devices and the Open Beta introduces more advanced ships and new modules to the game. Furthermore, the most hotly anticipated weapon system, Drones, has come to EVE Echoes in a new form.
In order to meet the increasing demand for in-game business dealings, a new trading platform – “Interstellar Trading Center (ITC)” – has been opened up. In addition, a new mission type – Storyline Missions – has been added to Encounters. All players joining EVE Echoes’ Open Beta will have access to these unique features. The game had an open beta recently, and we should see the launch in 2020.
For a totally unique mobile MMORPG experience, you need to check out Dragon Raja. This is a futuristic 3D cyberpunk mobile MMORPG that has already launched globally in NA. The game features PvP, PvE, full story quests, cut-scenes, voice acting for dialogues and it runs on the Unreal Engine 4.
Dragon Raja is aesthetically pleasing and sets itself apart from the clones of other games out there. Some of the interesting thing players can do in this MMORPG are things you’d expect from a Second Life sim – you can play Basketball with friends, race cars in drag races or just chill and dance at the club. All this is in addition to some traditional MMORPG gameplay like dungeons and raids which is why Dragon Raja is a highly anticipated mobile MMORPG in 2020.
