Best Upcoming Multiplayer Online Games In 2016

Multiplayer online games
Albion Online
First stop in the list of upcoming multiplayer online games is the fantasy MMORPG game from Sandbox Interactive, Albion Online. Currently in a closed beta stage, Albion Online can be purchased for a founder’s pack which will grant access to the game prior to Open Beta.

What’s good about the game is the way classes are more related to the way you gear your character. Unlike what we see in other MMORPGs where a ranged hunter can only wear cloak and heavy armor is not his thing, in Albion Online you can gear up with anything that you desire and prioritize what you think is best for your character. Open World quests and PvP allow players to gain battle stats and experience which get harder if you are willing to get valuable resources from dangerous areas.

Key Features:
– Class Independent Progression
– Player Based Economy
– Loot System
– Man made Cities
– Cross Platform Gaming

Nebula Online
This upcoming multiplayer online game is set in an outer space. Something very unique about this game is the choice players are given for the way they want to play it. You can either be a merchant or a war mongering soldier or you might want to be a diplomat in the outer worlds, the choice is yours. Get into global battles and also have a chance of getting your share in full loot PvP.

Explore beautiful galaxies and be a part of a player based economy. Start from level zero as you get your way up being more powerful strengthening your economy through winning and trading.

Key Features:
– Vast Open World

This turn based RTS multiplayer online game is also probably the reason why many of us know a lot about historical wars, strategies and yes, history itself.

The Warhammer lore brings in the fantasy element to the Total War title so that you will be getting the fun of warriors, monsters and heroes as you play the game. Select from a total of four factions, each different from another and unique for their own thing.
