PS4 MMORPG Reccomendations

Hey Folks,

Wanted to pick the brains of my favourite gaming community. I'm looking for an mmo RPG to play on PS4. I miss playing RPGs online like back in my WOW days so I was hoping for some suggestions.

I've heard of FF 14, Elder Scrolls Morrowind and Never Winter. Can anybody weigh in on any of them?

Appreciated

I've played all of those games on ps4 and enjoyed each one for what they brought to the table. It really depends on what you like or are looking for though. For instance Neverwinter is compelled free to play where Elderscrolls requires you to buy the game in order to play. FF14 require a purchase PLUS a monthly subscription so it's both the most expensive and most polished mmo out of all of them. I enjoyed FF the most for that reason and also because it felt like the most complete mmo and also the most familiar. That said I also put a lot of time into ESO but felt it lacked what made the original games feel special.

Even though you didn't list it, Elite Dangerous is also a mmo on ps4. While its wildly different from your listed games it's also the one I've become the most addicted! However my recommendation is only for people who are really into scifi and the Milky Way Galaxy, being a space sim in our very own Milky Way at a 1 to 1 scale btw.

I found Neverwinter to have some good PvP arenas and that WoW feeling with style etc. but lacking pay-to-win balance.

Elder Scrolls Online's PvP area is basically Alterac Valley times 50. I basically lived in there for several months. Awesome PvP area.
I would really recommend checking that game out, it also gave me that sense of exploration in PvE that I had missed since WoW.

FFXIV I found a mess with UI, but each to his own taste. A lot of people seem to love this one.

Hope this helps a bit.

Nice! They just released a huge expansion too which is getting a lot of love from players and reviews.

There really is a great selection of MMORPGs for the PS4. One of the best things I can really suggest, since most all of them are F2P, is to just DL them, give them a try, and then just keep the ones that you enjoy. Since there is such a wide range of types, that's going to be tour best bet, for finding what suits your tastes best.

The issue is that I don't want any pay2win and I don't know if any of them aren't,also have no way to pay a subscription either for FFXIV or PS Plus so they're out.Only tried Neverwinter and Skyforge who both have issues already on PC.
