Top 10 Best Upcoming Mobile MMORPGs 2020

Genshin Impact

Top 10 Best Upcoming Mobile MMORPGs 2020 and 2021 - Genshin Impact

Well, this is the big one, mark my words. If this Top 10 Best Upcoming Mobile MMORPGs 2020 and 2021 featured rankings, it would be number one. MiHoYo, makers of the awesome action RPG Honkai Impact 3rd, are a team to watch closely. The upcoming anime online RPG Genshin Impact has all the makings of a hit, despite being often unfairly labeled as a clone of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This game looks like that game, boo-hoo, cry me a river.

Genshin Impact offers some amazing open world gameplay with dozens of unique characters. It’s a playable anime set in a stunning world and it isn’t missing a thing: a deep combat system, puzzles, life skills, dungeons to run with friends, and tons of lore – it is inspired by a manga created by the devs.

While not a full-fledged MMORPG, Genshin Impact allows you to join the game world of a friend and embark on adventures together. It’s a game that is as much about peaceful exploration as it is about speedrunning those dungeons, and I’m absolutely in love with its colorful looks. You can play this on mobile, but also on PC, PS4, and Switch, so there’s no excuse to miss out.

Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds

Top 10 Best Upcoming Mobile MMORPGs 2020 - Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds MMORPG

The two Ni No Kuni RPGs are some of the most beautiful games ever made, and an MMORPG spin-off surely got us excited. Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds is a collaboration between Level 5 and Netmarble, and it looks breathtaking in all its Unreal Engine 4 glory. The unique art style and cheerful world reminds me of the ill-fated Peria Chronicles, so beautiful that I just want to travel around the land, but the real-time hack and slash combat system and kingdom development sound very appealing indeed.

Besides, you can steal lambs from other players and carry them to your kingdom, so that just seals the deal for me.

Dragon Raja

Top 10 Best Upcoming Mobile MMORPGs 2020 - Dragon Raja Release Date February 2020

The unusual clash of settings underscoring the world Dragon Raja is enough to stir curiosity, but it doesn’t hurt that the Unreal Engine 4 is used to deliver some impressive graphics… And long legs. Damn, those legs really go all the way up. Mixing sci-fi with fantasy results in a strange but beautiful world, and the character art style seems to take a cue from Blade and Soul, something that I’m totally okay with.

Dragon Raja promises a complex open world with an engaging storyline and many side activities to entertain you, with some racing on the side. Let’s see how the global release goes to confirm if this truly is one of the best mobile MMORPGs.

Path of Exile Mobile

Path of Exile Mobile

An MMORPG or not? Come on, who cares? it’s Path of Exile and it’s getting a mobile release in 2021. Diablo Immortal wasn’t up to a great start, and this was another strong blow to its fairly slim chances. Path of Exile Mobile isn’t the kind of rushed port handled by a third-rate studio; no, it’s a game being developed by Grinding Gear Games itself, a labor of love from the studio that insisted on its vision and delivered one of the best hack and slash games ever created.

Path of Exile Mobile is officially described as a complete Path of Exile game experience with no pay-to-win elements, which for once sounds like the real deal, judging by the legacy of the PC original. The main difference between PC and mobile games is that the sessions in the latter are expected to be shorter, and the devs are fully aware of that.

New ReEvolve gameplay trailers

I can’t shake the feeling that ReEvolve looks like a crossover between Phantasy Star Online and Minecraft, although with a less cubic style. This is a promising and colorful sandbox MMORPG with many interesting systems at work supporting the traditional survival mechanics. The weather is going to affect your character in different ways, with meters for temperature, hydration, and hunger affecting your adventures into the world. Always remember to stay hydrated, in-game and off-game, guys.

ReEvolve is promising tons of depth for its sandbox MMO gameplay and an English release is already confirmed, so keep watching this one closely.

Sky: Children of the Light

Sky: Children of the Light game of the year

Sky: Children of the Light is already available for iPhone devices and earned tons of awards in the process. If you can play this game, play it, unless you are an insensitive brute. On the other hand, the Android release keeps being delayed and is making many players anxious, me included.

Thatgamecompany’s latest magical adventure is Journey evolved; it’s a whimsical online game which gives true meaning to the power of friendship and all those clichés made popular by those weird colored quadrupeds with cutie marks. It can make you laugh, cry, scare you, and other emotions that not many games are able to convey. Additional Sky: Children of the Light versions are in the works for PC, PS4, and Switch, and since the magnificent art style is timeless and works in any platform, it is bound for another stellar reception.

Project V4

Project V4 gameplay

I’m not quite sure what to say of V4. Is it an ambitious mobile MMORPGs that is being ported over to PC, or a PC MMO that was dumbed down to fit on mobile? I guess it depends on how you look at it, but there’s no denying that this is a game to watch out for, in case you are a fan of the Black Desert Mobile style of fantasy.

V4 is a good-looking and promising game, albeit a generic one, and no efforts were made to make the PC version look different – the UI is straight up lifted from the mobile version. A redesigned interface could open up the game to a more demanding crowd, but I guess this is more of a ploy to fight Android emulators than to please the PC players. Rant over.

Naruto Slugfest

Naruto Slugfest gameplay

Touted as the first 3D open world MMORPG based on the Naruto franchise, Naruto Slugfest is looking really good. Fans of the anime will have no issues with its graphics, and they will easily identify some of the characters that you can summon to help you out.

Pick your class from a selection of four (Assassin, Berserker, Geisha, and Archer) and go on an adventure that is based on the storyline of Naruto Shippuden. Don’t expect it to break new ground or deliver on some revolutionary mechanics; however, it could be a great MMO for Naruto fans, and you know just how much we need one of those.

Blade and Soul 2

Blade & Soul 2 mmorpg

Calling Blade and Soul 2 one of the best upcoming mobile games is a bit of a stretch. The last that we heard of it was in 2018, after a delay for redesign with a new team at the helm. In terms of setting, it takes place in a future when the Blade and Soul heroes have become legends.

One of the most interesting bits of info concerns the quest givers, who aren’t static and roam the land, being an active part of the ecosystem. In theory, that sounds great, but let’s see if things don’t change in the meantime. The other piece of info that we retained from Blade and Soul 2 is the monster reactions, who are expected to be smarter and react in different ways to player behavior. Promises, promises…

Here’s a fun fact: besides Blade and Soul 2, we’ve heard of Blade and Soul M, Blade and Soul S, Blade and Soul: Hongmoon Rising, Blade and Soul Revolution, a Blade and Soul card battler, the Unreal Engine 4 Blade and Soul update for PC, and the Blade and Soul Musical. No, I’m not joking.

Aion 2

Aion 2 officially announced by NCsoft

Hey, look, another mobile sequel to a classic PC original. No, I’m sorry, I can’t take this anymore. I still haven’t recovered from Blade and Soul 2 mobile, so no, I’m skipping this one for now. Screw this.

Warhammer: Odyssey

Warhammer Odyssey MMORPG trailer

Ah, that’s better. While I would jump at the opportunity of a new PC Warhammer MMORPG, I’ve decided that I should give Warhammer: Odyssey a chance. Why, you might ask? Because the devs are promising that this game won’t have any sort of auto-combat or auto-questing, two of the most frustrating features ever designed.

As for the rest, Warhammer: Odyssey looks good, is free-to-play, and the plan is to expand its world over regular episodic updates. Color me curious.

These are the ten mobile MMORPGs that we are looking forward the most. You should also keep an eye out for the gory Mad World and the fun but generic World of Dragon Nest. Oh, and Diablo Immortal… I’m giving it the benefit of doubt. But one of the latest reveals is also one of the most promising mobile MMORPGs: Gran Saga. This mobile and PC cross-platform game is a stunning anime MMORPG that is releasing during 2020 in Korea and the global launch is planned for sometime later. We hope you enjoyed our Top 10 Best Upcoming Mobile MMORPGs 2020 and 2021, and we'll see you guys soon.
