5 Best MMO Games To Play In 2020

MMO as a genre in video games has always been unstable. However, the committed MMO community has kept the genre going. Some MMO games are free or subscription-based, while others require a one-time payment. Even though there are many MMOs in the market, only a few MMOs are good enough to play or stay.

MMO games suffer from many issues, some of them being pay to win, low player count, outrageous in-game costs/subscriptions, boring story/content, etc. However, some MMO games are fun to play and have a good number of players. Today at Sportskeeda we’ve sorted out a list of the top five MMO games you can enjoy in 2020.

Warning: The MMO games mentioned in the list are chosen based on-

5 best MMO games to play in 2020:


#1: Black Desert Online Remaster

Black Desert Online is one of the best looking MMORPGs out there. On August 22, 2018, we received an even better version from BDO, namely Black Desert Online Remastered Edition. Black Desert offers a fast-paced combat system for all action lovers.

Remember those great words “MMO games without good character creation are no MMO at all”. But you don’t have to worry. Black Desert Online features one of the best character creations in MMO gaming history. Black Desert features 19 distinct classes; some of them are genderless while others are locked.

The story as well as character development in BDO is poor though. The best part where the MMO game shines is the graphics, gameplay, number of active players, etc. To play Black Desert Online, players need to pay a small amount of 10-15 USD. The game is well optimized and can be played with mid-level graphics cards.

#4: Elder Scrolls Online Greymoor

The world of Elder Scrolls Online is full of stories and places to explore. The game mechanics offered by ESO are one of a kind.

ESO offers character creation as well as different classes and races. However, in this regard, it falls short of Black Desert Online. The Greymoor expansion launches worldwide today. It can be purchased through Steam and other means. In ESO Greymoor, players could explore the dark side of Skyrim and fight the vampire lord.

The vampire skill tree would also get a huge update with the Greymoor expansion. ESO has a good number of active players. It is one of the best MMO games to try in 2020.
