MMORPGs

What Are They?

MMORPG stands for massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Over the years there have been several brands that have made games of this type. They are attractive due to their huge maps and expansive player communities.

World Of Warcraft

World Of Warcraft is perhaps the most famous example of this game type. In fact this title helped to popularize the genre amongst the worldwide gaming community. It is set in a fictional fantasy world.

There are large areas of land to explore, full of enemies that need to be defeated. Players can either control a good or an evil character. They can then team up with others from the same faction. This makes completing quests much more fun and enjoyable.

World Of Warcraft was first released in 2004 and has continued to maintain a large player base. Over the years there have been numerous expansion packs. It has remained an exclusively online game.

Star Trek

There are many fans of the science fiction TV show Star Trek. It was no surprise, thus, when it became a hit online game. Players join the crew of a spaceship as they explore the universe. The game contains the famous planets that existed in the show such as Vulcan and Romulus.

Users can be assigned the captain role and give jobs to their other team members. They can also upgrade the look and performance of their ship. In terms of character skins there are several from the different eras of the show and movies to choose from.

Perhaps the most exciting development is the ability to use Virtual Reality (VR) in the latest online Star Trek game. It means that the overall playing experience will be much more immersive. Players can feel like they are actually standing on the bridge of a starship in the future.
