If PKing is one of your favorite activities in Runescape, you need to download Perfect World and give it a try now. It’s free to download and play. Perfect World has been around for quite a while now, yet still maintains a very large player base. Is it as large as Runescape? Absolutely not, but very few games even come close. PWI is about roughly 20% the size of Runescape’s player base among all servers and countries. The concept is the same with all the traditional RPG features such as questing, monster killing, leveling up, etc. The PVP system is phenomenal and you can find yourself lost in hours of great game play. The only downside to the game is the fact that you can buy your weapon upgrades and such from the game developer. It’s hard to say this is a downside though because this cuts out the plague of bots and farmers. The best weapons surely don’t guarantee you any success in the PVP system. Give Perfect World a try and let us know what you think of it!
For those of you looking for a game with a player base equally as large as Runescape with better graphics and interface, check out Last Chaos. Players partake in an endless battle on the continent of “Iris.” You embark on quests and level up just like Runescape. However, it will require a broadband connection, and a somewhat up to date computer. The best part about this game is that it’s free. With a player base over 2 million, the game is definitely worth a look.
Conquer Online is up there in popularity with Runescape. Best of all, it is free forever. The player base easily surpasses the million mark, and they have great PVP combat. There are four basic classes, the warrior, the trojan, the fire taoist, and the archer. Not many games like Runescape offer the qualities of Runescape, for free. The game can be run on almost any computer, however you do have to download a big client, which is not that big of a deal considering almost everybody uses broadband anyway. If you are looking for a great game like Runescape, I highly suggest getting signed up and checking it out for yourself.
Sea Fight is an interesting spin to free MMORPGs. Not only is registration and membership free, but you can win prizes as well. The prizes range from a $50 to $20,000! Players can battle other ships, plunder islands, customize battle equipment, and much more in this live online game. The graphics are nothing like Runescape, and the client is completely different, however many Runescape players will enjoy this unique game.
I LOVE the concept of this game. Unlike most game developers, the Planeshift team intends on keeping this game free. I’ve been watching this game develop alongside Runescape for a long time and it has come a long way. The game is nowhere near complete, but the game creators have all the intention to make this a game with many features like Runescape. Eventually player houses, a very nice combat system (with a much better magic system that Runescape) and a full scale economy will be developed. The great thing about joining a developing game is being able to master the game before the mainstream gamer crowd flocks to it. Of course, you’ll never completely be able to master it since many features are still in development, you can still submit your input on the game, which the developers will take into much more consideration compared to Runescape and other games like Runescape. You get to choose from several races, dwarves, elves, humans, and more. There are several variations within with unique names and features such as Ylians, Dermorians, Clan Stonebreakers, and Klyros. I highly suggest taking a look at this game and keeping an eye on it’s development because it seems very promising.
