20 most anticipated MMO games in 2021 on iOS and Android

Multiplayer games on smartphones are becoming more popular every year. But maybe you are still not satisfied with them. In this case, this article is just for you, because I have collected the largest MMO, which should be released in 2021 on iOS and Android. This time, a list of as many as 20 projects, so that everyone is sure to find something for themselves. Well, a list of this caliber proves once again that next year will be rich in mobile releases, at least if we are talking about MMO.

Path of Exile Mobile

The path to Path of Exile is a thorny one: they usually find out about it after Diablo, because the marketing is not at the right level, and there are no cool demons here. But the studio Grinding Gear Games was able to convey the real experience of the isometric "grind", where your hero can be pumped in any possible direction. The talent branch on the PC version is so extensive that it rather resembles a huge constellation with so many subtleties that without a guide, you will most likely just get confused and at high levels you will reset your progress. It features both PvE and PvP content.

Punishing: Gray Raven

This game will be more to the taste of fans of anime and third-person action. You have to save humanity from a virus that can turn people into cybernetic monsters. You can and should control three characters at the same time, switching between them in the middle of the battle to use all the abilities and skills. As for the new characters, they can be obtained through the gacha system, which is very popular not only in Japan, but also around the world.

ODIN: Valhalla Rising

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla is unlikely to offer players a joint conquest of the world by Vikings; especially with the possibility of cross-play on PC and smartphones. The local world is open and fantasy. Players will fight monsters, climb mountains, explore dungeons, solve puzzles, and more. As in The Elder Scrolls series, players choose between representatives of different races, which have their own inherent advantages and disadvantages. After selecting the class of your character, you can customize it in detail.

My Hero Academia: The Strongest Hero

For fans of Japanese manga and anime, "My Hero Academy" is dedicated. In this MMO, you will collect familiar characters. During the battles on your side, up to two characters participate, which can be swapped. They have their own unique abilities that are even animated. Missions are usually divided here into rescuing hostages and fighting supervillains. It is understandable why: Spider-Man does about the same thing every day. The publisher of The Strongest Hero is Tencent.

Moonlight Blade

A true Chinese MMORPG where players are in ancient China and learn typical Oriental martial arts. In Moonlight Blade, there will be something to admire while moving around the locations; you can even get a little acquainted with Chinese culture. The developers promise that the local world will be 18 times larger than Skyrim. Battles are based on performing combos and dodging, just like in fighting games. In Moonlight Blade, there are many modes, among them: raids, the main story, the endless tower, world bosses, and also a whole group of PvP-modes. There is even a battle royale, but if you have a more powerful smartphone, then go straight to the 40 vs 40 battles.

SoulWorker Academy

If you have ever played Persona, where you need to practically live the life of your character, then Soul Worker Academy will be very familiar in this regard. There you will have to live in a hostel, take a part-time job, participate in mini-games and other social events with your friends. Character development is quite extensive and experienced gamers will always have something to strive for. The local action game is made according to the slasher standard, only still in the anime setting.

Marvel Future Revolution

Something strange always happens in the Marvel universe: this time the dimensions collided and different versions of the supervillains decided to take advantage of this to seize control of all the dimensions. But they probably did not realize that superheroes are not completely sewn and they will do everything possible to interfere with the villainous plans. Players will be able to choose and customize their favorite characters. Together with others, they will save the Earth; this will require defeating enemies, completing challenges and missions. This will be the first mobile MMORPG from Marvel, so we will look forward to the release.

Tower of Fantasy

In Tower of Fantasy, you are immersed in a fantasy world with a taste of anime. There you can interact with NPCs and other players, as well as with almost the entire environment. In this respect, the game is very much like Genshin Impact — here you can climb on ledges, go down on a glider, solve puzzles and collect materials for professions. But what makes Tower of Fantasy exactly different from other MMO's is the classless system. In it, it is the choice of weapons that determines both the style of the game and the skills. The developers promise a bunch of difficult puzzles that only a true strategist can solve.

NieR Re[in]carnation

Square Enix has finally decided to develop a mobile version of its popular RPG — Nier. Players will enter a world called " The Cage»; they will be led by the ghost "Mama" in order to collect "weapon memories". It sounds very strange, but apparently the developers are focusing on this. Also in Reincarnation there will be transitions between 2D and 3D modes. That is, the exploration of the world and turn-based battles take place in three-dimensional space, but some elements of the plot and puzzles are made in 2D.

DokeV

You may not believe it, but the development of this project is carried out by the same people who gave the world Black Desert-Pearl Abyss. In DokeV, players collect various creatures, "Dokebi", who then fight on their side. Does it remind you of anything? Exactly-Pokemon. You can see these Dokebi only after you put on special glasses. The game should also be released on PC and consoles, so maybe we'll even see a cross-play mode.

Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds

Would you agree to participate in the beta testing of the virtual fantasy world? I hope you answered positively, because that's what our character does in Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds. This game is made in the anime setting, which is very much reminiscent of the work of Hayao Miyazaki. It is understood, because the visual style of the Ni no Kuni series is being developed by Ghibli Studio, which is owned by Miyazaki. In the course of the story, players learn that the virtual and real worlds are connected, they are under threat, and only a chosen hero can save everything and everyone. So far, five classes have been announced: Swordsman, Witch, Rogue, Destroyer, and Engineer.

ReEvolve

This is probably the most interesting game for one reason only, which I will point out below. The world of ReEvolve itself is a sandbox, where we get together with our characters. The planet is unknown and as always happens-you need to start from the beginning. Players can interact with almost anything, living creatures and non-living objects. Here you can hunt, get pets, quench your thirst or hunger, fight, build and craft, explore the world and most importantly-reproduce. This is exactly what you thought. And since this is an MMORPG, it is likely that it will allow you to start a family with other players, and not flirt with soulless NPCs.

< /p>Warhammer: Odyssey

Developers from the Virtual Realms studio promise that they are not going to introduce any features in their upcoming MMORPG called Warhammer: Odyssey, which are "pay-2-win". This is good news for fans of mobile MMORPGs, especially in the Warhammer universe. The game features typical races: dwarves, elves, and humans. Certain classes are attached to the races: witch hunter, engineer, shadow warrior, archmage, and others. Players will have to travel from Marienburg to the Wasteland alone, with mercenaries or their friends.

TeeTiny Online

In TeeTiny Online, you will climb the Tower of Babel, which according to legend was destroyed by God after people wanted to use it to get to heaven. After that, humanity was divided into different language groups, so as not to understand each other and not to build a similar tower again. It is not known whether TeeTiny will repeat this legend, but a fairly high antique tower will be there. It is surrounded by floating islands in the sky, where various adventures will also take place both alone and with friends.

Devil May Cry: Pinnacle of Combat

Devil May Cry will finally appear on mobile devices in the form of Pinnacle of Combat. In it, we will be able to meet and even play for your favorite characters, for example: Dante, Virgil and others. Players will be able to participate in dynamic slasher-style battles. Well, the most important thing is the endless combos that are not so difficult to score, especially with touch controls. Let's hope that Capcom will bring support for controllers.

Bless Eternal

Bless Eternal offers not only very beautiful landscapes. It is more of an Asian MMORPG type, with a heavy emphasis on deep character customization, auto-combat, PvP, and social events with guilds. Some gamers note the dynamic ability system, which may hint at the potential of this game on the combat system. At least it promises to be better than in other similar projects.

My Time at Portia Mobile

The developers of the original My Time at Portia are already working hard on a new project — My Time at Sandrock. They even managed to raise money on Kickstarter for this sandbox. But mobile gamers are interested in another question and it is related to the mobile version of My Time at Portia. In it, players will have to restore their parent nest and get acquainted with the locals. The first item can be done in the following ways: raise cattle, expand the farm, complete tasks, hunt for treasures and explore the world.

Sword Art Online Black Swordsman: Ace

Perish in the virtual world — you will come to an end in reality. This is one of the main themes of the anime "Masters of the Sword Online". According to it, they are going to release a mobile MMORPG, where players get into a digital reality and face a cruel reality there — you can not die in any case. I wonder how they will fit this concept into the framework of a multiplayer game, where you sometimes need to die. Anyway, the developers promise dungeons, a tower with 100 floors, character customization, PvP, world bosses, and much more.

Diablo: Immortal

If 2018 is something to remember, it's an epic Blizzard fail — the company announced a mobile Diablo: Immortal under the slogan "You all have phones". Visitors to BlizzCon immediately started asking very tricky questions, the first of which was the following: "Is this an extraordinary April Fool's joke?". But over the years, the rage of the players has subsided, especially since work is underway on Diablo 4. As for Immortal, there will be six classes, and the plot runs between the second and third parts. That is, players will have to collect fragments of the World Stone, because of which there were hordes of demons.

Torchlight: Infinite

And finally we have another isometric slasher, in which a great emphasis is placed on dungeon crawling and loot collecting. The developers promise that the gameplay in the mobile Torchlight: Infinite will practically not differ from the PC version. The game will not feature PvP, but it will be possible to go through the story and run through the dungeons with friends in co-op. At the same time, you can disable the network functions and enjoy the adventure in solo.
