MMORPG games are massively popular across the world and offer an immersive experience that will keep you entertained for hours on end.
Mobile gaming can be an incredible experience on Android smartphones and tablets, and MMORPG games have gained a huge amount of popularity, becoming a billion dollar industry. For those who are unaware, MMORPG stands for massively multiplayer online role-playing games, and as you may have worked out they combine the virtual worlds of role-playing games with multiplayer online games.
Hordes of eager gamers have now become loyal followers and take part in MMORPGs, which feature progression, in-game culture, social engagement with others that play the game, and more. Their very nature means that even when you’re not playing, the environment where the game takes place is persistent and carries on evolving, and MMORPGs cover a range of themes including fantasy, science fiction, comic book, and other genres.
If you’ve wanted to get on board with MMORPGs but have no idea where to begin from the multitude that are available, we’ve come up with our picks of the best free MMORPG games for Android. All of the following apps are free to download and install from the Google Play Store. However, we should point out that although they are free to play, the majority of these types of games require in-app purchases for further content or access.
10 Best Best Free MMORPG Games
1. ORDER & CHAOS ONLINE 3D MMORPG
If this game doesn’t keep you fully immersed, nothing will! It’s set in the huge fantasy world of Haradon, with jungles, forests, mountains and more to explore. Thousands of players take part and you’ll be the hero as you go on quests to try to get your guild to the pinnacle of the multiplayer leaderboard. There are more than 1,500 quests, 5 races (Elves, Humans, Orcs, Undead, and Mendels), over 15,000 skills, and thousands of pieces of gear to collect. The character creation system is one of the best we’ve come across to customize avatars, and there’s plenty of interaction within the community, a PvP mode, or solo play. It’s worth noting that the recommended configuration requires your device to have a minimum 1GHz CPU, 500 MB of RAM, and 1.7GB of free space.
2. DUNGEON HUNTER 5
We couldn’t ignore one of the most popular gaming franchises and Dungeon Hunter 5 is the latest in the series. This is a really absorbing game where you can join in with millions of online Bounty Hunters in a hack-and-slash escapade. You can work your way through 90 missions hunting down demons, monsters, dark knights and more in a bid for vengeance, and can also hire friends as allies, fight in co-op mode with 3 other players, unleash spells and skills, and equip yourself with a ridiculous amount of weapons and gear. As with most of these apps, it’s free to download and play but the freemium strategy leans hard on in-app purchases. However, the superb graphics really bring the game to life and the game will keep you absorbed for hours.
3. CRUSADERS OF LIGHT
The premise of this game is a world where after 700 years of peace the Desolation Wall has fallen and demons now want to take over the land. You’ll team up with allies to fight the enemy and begin with choosing from Ranger, Warrior, or Mystic classes with different traits and powers. You can take part with up to 40 guild mates in Dungeon Raids, and there are also Arena Battles with 1vs1, 3vs3, and 5vs5 modes. Crusaders of Light offers many of the popular MMORPG elements such as customization with weapons, clothes and armor, collectible rare items, and social engagement. There are more than 300 hours of game play and it’s one of the newer MMORPGs to appear, so it will be interesting to see how it develops. For now, we were impressed enough with the graphics and the experience to include it in our list.
4. ARCANE LEGENDS MMO – ACTION RGP
The developers of this game claim that it’s the “best fantasy action RPG and MMORPG game on mobile”. We wouldn’t go quite that far but it has been downloaded 17 million times and is definitely worthy of making it into our top picks. You’ll quest with thousands of other online players and travel the kingdom of Arlor to defend the land against evil forces such as dragons and orcs. Play alongside three others in the PvE campaign, or there are three PvP modes, duels, capture the flag, and deathmatch. You can collect mystical pets along the way that will help you out, and the game features different classes, multiple skills, and thousands of items to customize your character. A nice touch with this one is weekly epic events to keep things moving along.
5. LAST DAY ON EARTH: SURVIVAL
Zombie culture is really popular right now and Last Day on Earth is a zombie shooter strategy and survival game. Set in 2027 in a post apocalyptic era after a deadly virus, you’re a survivor fighting against the walking dead and others unkilled by the virus in a bid to stay alive. You can roam areas such as abandoned military bases, build a shelter, assemble vehicles, search survivor camps for resources, find rare objects, and join clans to gunship zombies, and you’ll also need to learn survival skills to create more weapons, and communicate effectively with other players.
6. SCHOOL OF CHAOS ONLINE MMORPG
While most MMORPGs reside in a mystical fantasy or medieval world, this exciting game is rather different as it’s set in a school. As the title implies, it’s a rather chaotic school because zombies have finished off the teachers and the kids have been left to run riot. That might sound cool but the lack of authority leads to bedlam and the survival of the fittest. The 3D open world sandbox environment enables you to roam the school making friends (or enemies), and you can devise your own quests, choose from over 30 fighting moves, equip yourself with weapons and armor, and much more. This quirky game is a whole lot of fun and refreshingly different, and VNL Entertainment says that it will evolve to become even better.
7. CELTIC HEROES – 3D MMORPG
Back to the more traditional MMORPG world of warcraft and adventure, this real-time epic game with a vast amount of game play has hooked millions of players around the world. Epic battles and heroic feats are what Celtic Heroes is all about, and you’ll endeavor to lead your clan to victory against the forces of darkness in the land of Dal Riata. As with most of these games you can customize your character, develop your own skills, and collaborate with other players to take on your rivals, and a neat addition here is the ability to trade equipment with other players.
8. WORLD AT WAR: WW2 STRATEGY MMO
You’ll take on the role of a general (Montgomery, Patton, Rokossovsky, or Rommel) and develop a strategic center of operations ready to go to war. You can forge alliances with thousands of other players, develop your base, research military technologies, and even build Allied and Axis powers WW2 panzers and aircraft. A Front Map is available where you can scout out your enemy or use to gather resources, and real-time chat with other generals will help in your endeavor to surmount the Atomic Facility. There are hundreds of missions and many features in this game including daily events, being able to visit famous landmarks such as Dunkirk and Stalingrad, and the use of free Speed Ups and your duties include placing the flag of your own country in the world rankings.
9. THE INFINITE BLACK – FREE MMO
This is the advanced user client version of The Infinite Black space combat game, and while in-app purchases are available the developer boasts that these are not necessary to experience the full game. It’s good to see a futuristic MMORPG and you’ll be fleeting up with other players and commanding spaceships for intergalactic warfare. Interestingly, this is a cross-platform game so you can play on devices across the Android and iOS mobile platforms as well as Windows, Mac, and Linux desktop platforms.
10. FALLENSOULS – DRAGON BATTLE
This immersive MMORPG game sees you in a kingdom battling against the darkness. Heroes (that’s you!) join the war to try and establish peace again, and you’ll join a multitude of other players trying to bring down the World Boss Leviathan, the monster that led to the world being on the edge of destruction. Along the way, you’ll take on epic dungeons and gain treasures and rewards. Like many MMORPGs, the weaponry and armor are a big part of the game, and in FallenSouls you can bless your equipment so it fits best with your playing style, and also upgrade, refine, and modify it. You can also restore your own castle, upgrade it, and establish an army to safeguard it. This game offers an intense experience that many will find addictive.
