What is the best free MMORPG for 2011? Here is MMO Worlds’ top pick of the best game. Since it is now the last few weeks of 2011, there are now two lists, the first is this one which is the last and final choice of the best free MMO of 2011. This post will no longer be updated. For the new list and upcoming MMORPGs, visit the Best Free MMORPG 2012 list.
And the top pick of free to play MMORPGs 2011 is…*drumroll*
Runes of Magic – this free game has attracted over 4 million registered users so far, making it one of the most popular and successful free-to-play MMORPGs in the market. Runes of Magic is based on an exciting, multi-layered story, driven by more than 2,800 quests set in the atmospheric fantasy world of Taborea which spreads over two continents. Thanks to comprehensive crafting and ranking systems, gripping player vs. player features such as arenas and open battlefields, flexible and extensive customization of the user interface, a selection of demanding dungeons and many other features, Runes of Magic has something for everyone and is truly one of the best free MMORPGs for 2011.
One of the things that set RoM apart is its popularity and large player base. A lot of games are very good but have not had the success Runes of Magic has had in attracting millions of players. Obviously, the top free MMO game of 2011 should have tons of players. RoM has over 4 million registered users.
Easy to Play, Hard to Master
This is also a game that is easy to understand and play. There is no difficult learning curve in the beginning because it is very newbie-friendly so anyone can just start playing right away even if they have never played an MMORPG before. However, once you do get into the game you will find that there is plenty of challenging content for players of all levels. It’s a good game for both casual and hardcore gamers.
Great Graphics, Smooth Playing
Another reason why RoM is the best free MMORPG for 2011 is that it has beautiful graphics and runs smoothly on all but the oldest computers. The user interface is similar to World of Warcraft’s so it should be quite familiar to WoW players.
Constantly Updated with New Content
The developers of RoM also constantly update the game with fresh new content several times a year. This is another sign of a successful free MMORPG since it shows that the game devs take their job seriously and have enough faith in the game to spend money creating fresh content such as instances, dungeons, expansions and the like. To give an example, the last content patch was “Souls of the Past” on November 22, 2011. Before that, on the 35th of October, there was a patch for the Pumpkin festival. More updates and content means that even long-time players will not get bored as they will always have something new to play.
