Any good MMOs on the horizon?


Does anyone know of any new MMOs that will be coming out soon? Any good ones to keep my eye on?

I beta tested for dark and light. The game really feels/felt as if it was missing alot. Unless they added a crap load in the last 2 months its not worth it.

I was wondering the same thing since SWG is no more as far as I'm concerned. I've heard City of Viliians is a really good one. I went back to playing The Matrix Online. It seems like there are just some WoW wannabe MMORGs coming out.

Sorry if this has already been mentioned, but one I have tried a few times that is being developed still is Planeshift (http://www.planeshift.it). I think it is still alpha or beta, but they are getting quite a bit of stuff done.

100% free unless you want to make a donation. It isn't exactly new though, and the interface isn't the best.

CoV and CoH are ok, i got bored quick of them though...there really isnt much to do, no loot, no real incentive for missions(quests). Character Creation and devolpment seemd to be a lot of fun...My character felt unique, but with out real loot the game didnt really seem to hold me :/

Personally, I'd like to see more mmo's WITHOUT instancing. It takes the competition vs other players out of the game too much, and thus the fun.

Vanguard ( http://www.vanguardsoh.com/ ) is in beta right now. It's made by Bard Mcquaid. He was the guy who started Verant Interactive. Check it out, it looks cool so far.

E~

Agree with crash. Darkfall looks like is has really good potential if your into PvP. Loot your kills. No safe zones. I think there are two main factions but you can play a race that is at war with everyone else. Brutal.

Those screenshots look extemely demanding on a computer like mine. The distance detail is incredible. The site says it's a variation of the unreal engine. On the minimum system specs they put:It's too early to announce Vanguard's hardware, memory, or storage requirements.
