Looking for a cool sci fi mmo
« on: December 19, 2011, 11:35:27 PM »
Hi guys!

I'm been playing Fly for Fun during the past two years, but I'm starting to get tired of the game, and I'm looking for some change.

I'm looking for a cool sci fi mmo.
Why ask in here?
Well because we all like the 40k universe!
Basically what I'm looking for is an mmo that any 40k diehard fan would recommend to me!

I don't want any spaceship battles of any stuff like that, the mmo I'm looking should preferably be first/third person, with weapons,different classes, PvE, PvP,
talking to people, etc...
Seen as this would be an sci fi mmo, guns would be the most common type fo weapon, but it doens't have to be like that I wouldn't mind having some close combat weapons as well.

Basically I'm looking for a way to kill time untill the 40k mmo comes out, at that point I'll start playing it at any cost and at any price : ).


Any suggestions?

Always been a big lack of Sci-Fi mmos.  :-\

The Old Republic is the current big one, sadly doesn't seem to be living up to the hype. It's a cool game with a great single player mission set (If you liked Mass Effect you'll like it) but there's a lot of people questioning the long term appeal.

Besides that... Eve is all space ships, SWG would have suited you down to the ground but alas is no more... Planetside... On it's last legs, Planetside 2 is still a while away.

If you're just after a Elf-less setting then DCUO may be worth a look, being free to play there's nothing to be lost except the download time.

  There's no stopping what can't be stopped, no killing what can't be killed

You can't see the eyes of the demon until him come calling.

This is dread man, truly dread.

There's also 'Dust 514' which may or may not be out yet (It's Xbox exclusive so I don't follow). It's basically planetside operations in EVE. So while PC players are in orbit, fighting for a particularly productive colony, or just for territory, you and your team may be hired to secure the surface by Party A. Party B may have it's own ground force ready to deploy.
You could probably play it as a Mercenary, or see about getting a security contract with one of the hundreds, if not thousands, of (player run and staffed) Corporations.

yeah of coruse I know about the Star wars thing, it was suggested by one of my guild mates in flyff. I was still wondering if there were any good sci fi mmo  out there, I was pretty disappointed when i started looking online. Most MMOs are more fantasy like. A couple of sci fi ones, but never as good or as vast as the 40k world.

If you are patient you could wait for a new Phantasy Star online game, Sega is working on a new one.

Star Wars: The Old Republic -- I played a bit, refused to get pulled into another MMO, seemed "ok".

EVE Online -- (I'm biased here.. my character is in the upper 1%).  New expansion is cool, pretty much MMO-anarchy... WILL CONSUME YOUR LIFE if you get hooked.  Looking forward to something in the way of Dust514 whenever that hits (console FPS linked to EVE PC MMO).

There's also 'Dust 514' which may or may not be out yet (It's Xbox exclusive so I don't follow).

actually i understood it to be PS3-only.  going to have to go dig now :P
