With 2007 coming to a close, I’ve decided to take a look torwards the top 5 most anticipated MMOs of 2008.
Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures
(1Q) This is the MMORPG I’m looking to the most in 2008. Mostly because of the combat and really cool PVP system it has setup. It’s also being touted as the first “mature” MMORPG with content that is not suitable for kids under 17.
Guild Wars 2
(4Q) Updated graphics and new features promise to make Guild Wars 2 one of the biggest anticipated MMORPGs of 2008. No details to really speak about other than the game engine will be new.
(TBA 2008) Even though no date has been given, the game is currently in Beta and is expected to be released sometime in 2008. What makes Huxley standout? Its a FPS MMO using the Unreal 3 engine.
(1/2Q) Coming from Flagship Studios comprising of many Blizzard North developers that brought you Diablo 2. Mythos similar game play to the ever popular Diablo 2 for those of you who can’t hold out for D3. The game is currently in Beta.
No introduction required here. Warhammer Online is set to become one of the biggest MMORPG in 2008 touting a next generation Realm vs. Realm system integrating both PvP combat and PvE quests on the same map. They are currently in closed beta.
