The best MMORPGs available on Android

We've selected ten of the best MMORPGs for Android that have successfully transferred the full experience to mobile devices.

A few years ago, no one could have imagined that the elaborate MMORPG genre would have a second life on mobile devices. We’re not exactly talking about short rounds and simple interfaces, but quite the opposite instead. Thanks in part to the automation of the tiresome tasks they involve, massively multiplayer online role-playing games continue to be more popular than ever. We’ve selected the 20 best MMORPGs available on Android. It’s time to get grinding!

AxE: Alliance vs Empire

NEXON is a leader when it comes to MMOs for smartphones. AxE is an open world MMORPG with visuals that are way above average and incredible features such as massive battles of up to 75v75 as well as other game modes such as PvP and PvE. Two warring parties, each with three different classes and a progression system that’s similar to the popular Lineage 2 Revolution. [Download]

Blade & Soul Revolution

An adaptation for Android of one of the games that’s created most excitement inside the genre. It’s probably enough to say that it was developed by non-other than NCSOFT, the original creators of Lineage for PC and other works such as Aion. This time, they’ve strayed away from classic fantasy to introduce you to a universe where martial arts and Chinese mythology pave the way.  [Download]

Crown Four Kingdoms

Not every game subscribes to the «teen» aesthetics established by the classics of this genre. Crown Four Kingdoms went for a more child-like appearance with colorful visuals and big-headed characters. But don’t let those visuals fool you, because the content level is just as good as any other classic. Think of this game as the middle point between Lineage and Ragnarok Mobile. [Download]

Dragon Raja 2

The name probably sounds familiar to you if you’ve been with us for a while. Its predecessor dates back to 2004. This saga, which is based on the popular Korean novel by the same name, is now granted a sequel for smartphones that includes a bunch of strong features. The first one that stands out is the visuals since its character editor is incredibly detailed. Its eight races, different professions, and NPC recruiting systems place this game as a must in this list. [Download]

Ragnarok M

Ragnarok M Eternal Love is one of the many games that have been released as regional versions of this MMORPG. The iconic saga has tried to establish itself in the Android catalog a few times, but it seems like this game is the winner. Beautiful visuals, passion for customization, the outfits, colors, and huge social components go beyond killing creatures and completing missions.   [Download]

MU Origin 2

MU Online is back with a sequel that keeps all the identity markers of its predecessors: an Asian MMO with an obsession for constant and unproportionate level ups and a high level of automatization that almost turns it into a simulator to micromanage inventories. Without a doubt, the best in its class. [Download]

Rangers of Oblivion

This time, the reference clearly focuses on the Monster Hunter saga since the vast majority of the missions revolve around destroying giant creatures that are hiding somewhere on the map. Other than that, it includes everything that other more iconic MMORPGs include. [Download]

Tales of Wind

Can you there be anything more Ragnarok, than Ragnarok itself? Although the saga already has a contemporary representative, there are other spiritual heirs. Tales of Wind (also known as Laplace M in some countries) is an all-around adorable game, from its cute and colorful visuals to the nature of the game itself. You can customize your characters, form groups,  share living spaces and even get married. An MMO to make you happy. [Download]

Utopia Origin

Another category of massive multiplayer role games focuses on crafting to reach higher levels, much like in ARK: Survival Evolved. That’s exactly what Utopia Origin is all about. Walk around open worlds where you can thrive and build new objects and buildings in order to advance and understand the secrets of the world a little better. All of this with the help of other players, of course. [Download]

Dawn of Isles

You need to be really brave to create a game for smartphones that was clearly inspired, at least aesthetically (and a tiny bit in gameplay), by the iconic The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This NetEase game is one of the last to arrive since it was announced, as well as one that’s created the most excitement. [Download]

MU Origin

The mobile version of the super popular MU Online PC version was one of the first «great» ones to arrive. Closely following the tracks of the Asian MMOs, MU Origin embraces Freemium to integrate it in this hybrid that’s almost closer to a hack and slash that’s characteristic in the Diablo saga, than to an online multiplayer role game. [Download]

Taichi Panda 3

The first installments of the Taichi Panda saga were super fun 3D action games, but this third part has widened its horizons. This time, you’ll be in an open world filled with tasks to complete. Framed by a humorous tone and an apparent fixation for using different frames (you can even fight in the air), Taichi Panda 3: Dragon Hunter can be equally enjoyed by Chinese mythology fans and Kung Fu Panda fans alike. [Download]

Rise of Ragnarok – Asunder

We could almost consider Rise of Ragnarok to be the bastard child of the Diablo saga more than it would be of any classic MMO. As we’ve previously mentioned, the crossbreed between genres is popular when it comes to transferring the gaming experience into the small screens. The mixture can also be witnessed in the settings since they’re a rehash of Egyptian, Nordic and Greek mythologies. Besides that: PvP, guilds, professions, and other default equipment. [Download]

Blade & Wings

We’ve been trying to walk around it, but it’s impossible: Blade & Wings is an MMORPG with anime aesthetics, in every sense of the word. In other words, voluptuous and powerful young women with monumental swords alongside adorable talking raccoons. If you’re into that kind of thing, then this game is definitely for you. [Download]

Dead Rivals

The latest Gameloft release isn’t an MMORPG, per se, but it does include some aspects that could be considered like so. An action game with zombies, quite a few aesthetic similarities with the popular Fortnite and a mission-based system, sprinkled with common areas. Plus, its production values are just as high as any of the studio’s recent releases. It earned its place in this list. [Download]

Final Fantasy Awakening

It was impossible to not add at least one Final Fantasy title to this list, considering just how many games from the franchise exist on Android. Awakening is the sequel of Type-0 from PSP, set in the Nebula Chrisallys saga, that also forms part of Final Fantasy XIII. If we’ve lost you here, then you should probably move on to another game. If not, then you just might have found the game you’ve been looking for. [Download]

Royal Blood

The game from Gamevil is one of the most spectacular that we’ve seen, visually speaking. The Unity engine hasn’t been given many opportunities to shine so brightly on Android, and since a picture’s worth a thousand words, Royal Blood has become a success after its recent international release following various months in closed beta. [Download]

Royal Blood

Dragon Project

The fact that it’s an MMORPG that’s played vertically should already be a selling point for players in search of innovations in such a closed genre. But the real surprise comes when you realize that Dragon Project is similar in a lot of ways to what the Monster Hunter saga offers. Enough said. [Download]

Dragon Nest M

Dragon Nest has been around for nearly 10 years on PC with different incarnations of its MMORPG, so its adaptation for Android has generated quite a bit of expectation. With its combat system without automatic aiming, the six original classes from the Windows version, and good graphics, Dragon Nest M earns its spot in the rankings as one of the best. [Download]

Dragon Nest M

Lineage 2 Revolution

We’ve saved the best for last. If World of Warcraft is the most well-known western MMO with most of its success occurring in recent years, Lineage is its Asian counterpart. The Android version includes tons of content that are constantly being updated since its international release: daily missions, world bosses, guilds, PvP arena, mounts, and dungeon raids are just some of the ways you can find happiness in this game.
