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 like 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.

Kasumi Games brings us a VR fantasy game that has everything you could want from an MMORPG.

Players start by leveling their characters. Quests tell the story of a world engulfed in darkness that’s in desperate need of heroes.

As players level up, they acquire better weapons and armors. The goal is to prepare for difficult content.

We have PvE boss fights that require players to coordinate efforts. PvP pits adventurers against each other. There’s glory in winning, but the rewards are not bad either.

You can play alone but what’s the point in that when you can team up with three other players?

Features such as dynamically generated dungeons and arenas where you must survive waves of monsters keep players on their toes. And we mean that literally as Redemption’s Guild is designed as a standing and room-scale VR game.

Six character classes that can equip a large variety of gear are available.

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.

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.

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.

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.
