The 9 Best Upcoming And Playable VRMMORPGs In 2024

Virtual Reality might have lost some of its hype but it will definitely have a place in the future of gaming. It allows you to step into another world and become someone else.

There are many different Virtual Reality games available, but which ones are the best? In this blog post, we will discuss the Virtual Reality MMORPGs that are worth your time!

This is our list of the worthiest playable and upcoming VRMMORPGs and a few non-MMOs that we still think MMO fans will enjoy in 2024.

Don’t get your hopes up because none of them even comes close to Sword Art Online. That kind of VR experience is still a long way off, but we have several titles that will put that VR headset of yours to good use.

9. The Maze: Humanity

The Maze is a Co-op RPG

The Maze: Humanity has a gripping and terrifying premise. You are in a maze with an ever-changing layout.

The players’ minds drive these changes as their thoughts and memories influence the shape of the maze. And if that wasn’t enough, the place is filled with creatures whose favorite food is Human.

To make things even more interesting, the game doesn’t reveal the purpose of the maze from the beginning.

The game has a dual-character system that allows players to combine classes.

Archgate features unique fantasy graphics

While most VR games are first-person, Archgate provides a third-person experience. VR third-person games are much more comfortable and Archgate is designed for long playing sessions, so this might be the VR MMO to lose yourself in for hours.

The graphics are amazing. The team is working with an artist whose area of expertise is ambient music to create an immersive experience.

Archgate has a political system that allows players to acquire power by democratic means or settle the score on the PvP battlefield.

The combat is Dark Souls-inspired and features platforming elements.

7. VRKraft

VRKraft is a traditional fantasy MMO made in VR

VRKraft is an action VRMMO from Digital Messiah Games. Adventures take place in the Three-Worlds, a realm that has seen better days. Guess whose job is to put the mighty dragon Tetrac in his place!

You can choose to bring salvation as a Warrior, Hunter, Mage, Priest, or Paladin. VRKraft has the traditional MMO trinity that requires players to select their role: tank, damage dealer, or healer.

Dungeons support four-member parties. PvP scenarios, such as Domination and Capture the Flag, have the same setup.

Riding a gryhon in VR is something you don’t want to miss.

6. Vivecraft

Vivecraft is a VR mod for Minecraft that works with Wynncraft, the largest MMORPG Minecraft server. It’s fair to note that Wynncraft doesn’t have official Vivecraft support but many have tried it and it works.

So, buckle up and get ready for an MMO Minecraft experience in virtual reality.

Wynncraft has classic MMORPG systems such as leveling through quests. More than 100 quests are available.

The seamless game world is the creation of a skilled team that has put many hours into this. The people in charge of content haven’t done a

A Township Tale is perfect for player who enjoy crafting and gathering features

A Township Tale is more of a multiplayer game than a VRMMO, but we have plenty of reasons to include it on this list. Not all MMO players are after large-scale social interaction. Some just want to play with a bunch of friends and ATT lets you do just that.

Players can host servers for up to eight members.

The character system is based on professions. You can become a warrior, blacksmith, cook, and even a janitor.

Survival features, such as eating to keep your HP full, make A Township Tale an interesting game.

4. OrbusVR: Reborn

The character system includes eight choices, ranging from Warrior to Bard. Quests scale with the character’s level so players can team up and gain XP together.

There is more than 100 hours’ worth of content complete with dungeons and raids.

For PvP enthusiasts, OrbusVR: Reborn offers open-world PvP and battlegrounds.

Besides the iconic PvE and PvP activities, we have relaxing content such as fishing and crafting.

Crowdfunded via Kickstarter in January 2024, Ascent Quest is a VRMMORPG in development, blending MMO and co-op elements for an immersive VR experience.

It emphasizes quality over quantity in features, focusing on detailed, engaging combat and exploration in a visually stunning world. The game introduces dynamic, responsive environments, a rich narrative involving a struggle for freedom against the Draken invaders, and a flexible specialization system for character progression.

Ilysia has a classic fantasy look

Ilysia is a Kickstarter story with a happy end. The studio got almost four times more than they’ve requested in the first place so it’s safe to say that the VRMMORPG managed to capture the gamers’ attention even in its early development stage.

Ilysia’s world is made of Kingdoms. Each Kingdom has a unique environment, quests, challenges, and world bosses known as Guardians.

Players travel between Kingdoms using their caravans. This is the game’s housing feature as players can personalize their caravans.

Ramen VR brings us one of the best VRMMOs on the market today

From San Francisco-based Ramen VR, we have Zenith. This virtual reality MMO takes inspiration from Asian entertainment. The graphics are anime-ish and the gameplay has JRPG features. That’s what you get from a company named Ramen.

The game has a fantasy open world that invites players to explore it. No location is inaccessible as you can climb and glide.

The action-based combat allows players to wield swords and cast spells.

Other features include class customization with skills, instanced dungeons, quests, world bosses, and guilds.

Zenith is dead. Ramen killed it on Feb 2, 2024.

Also, Ilysia not only doesn't look like that, it DOESN'T have a happy end, and neither does Zenith. Both games are buggy, ugly, play like crap, and have a terrible community.

Did you even play the games you reviewed? Most of these are complete garbage.

I don't understand how even if there are such incredible graphics on some single player VR games, that look like actual reality, all the MMO VR games look like dated junk in comparison to the best Single player VR games or in comparison to PC flat screen MMORPGs that got thousands of players per server. Bring us a REAL mmorpg in VR, see what works that keeps players in Final Fantasy, Lineage, Guild Wars, New World, Destiny, Warframe and many others and make something in VR. And I am constantly astonished to see content creators describe Ilysia, Zenith and others with Incredible Graphics, Astonishing effects, models etc. When I look at the videos it looks like someone resurrected something from 1995... People, how you want customers to adopt VR and buy 1000 euros headsets and powerful PC rigs to play that?

Sorry for the ramble, but I am an MMORPG player and although loved to test Beat Saber and 1-2 games in VR, sadly I sold my headset instead of letting it collect dust, since my favourite genre, the MMORPG, is nonexistant in the VR world to the standards of graphics, gameplay, skills, customisation and mechanics of 2023 MMORPGs. So far for me, VR worths if you wanna play some fitness games, simulator games or watch Netflix or some other streams.

@Dan, Graphics are not that great for games right now since half life alyx came out bro

I wholeheartedly agree with your sentiment. I played Ultima and WoW and a couple other MMOs for a long time. They are the only games I can spend any serious time learning and enjoying. These screenshots make me not even consider buying an updated rig and headset.
