In the past decade, many MMO developers have jumped on the bandwagon of tapping into the rapidly growing mobile market by creating mobile spin-offs of their PC games. MMOs are meant to be played with others, so it makes a lot of sense to bring these awesome titles to mobile phones – a device that billions of people now have in the palm of their hands. Here is a list of the mobile MMO spin-offs that have already, will, or are expected to release in 2019!
During the annual Game Enthusiasts’ Day, Netease revealed the first glimpse of the world of the mobile version of Revelation Online titled Revelation M, one of two major projects for the Revelation Online IP. Now Netease has announced that they are now accepting pre-registrations for the soon-to-be released game. Pre-registration can be done through the official site with a Chinese phone number. The game is available to Android and iOS users.
Not much is known about the gameplay mechanics of Revelation M yet, but we do know that it will be set several years ahead of the PC version and will feature younger characters. Revelation M will be a massively multiplayer online game and will share the same Wuxia-themed fantasy universe as its PC predecessor.
Martial Arts MMOs are largely influenced by codified systems and traditions of well-known combat practices.
- Wushu is Chinese martial arts that consists of several hundred fighting styles that developed over many centuries in Ancient China.
- Wuxia is a genre of Chinese fiction concerning the adventures of martial art heroes and well known martial art figures in ancient China.
- Xianxia is a Chinese martial arts novel genre from the Wuxia genre that is influenced by Taoism and Buddhism.
We are listing these games based on their titles in ascending order.
In the Netease Games annual conference, Chinese developer and publisher Netease has revealed two major releases for the Revelation Online IP in 2018; Revelation Online 2.0 and Revelation M. A new era for the Chinese version of Revelation Online will open sometime in the summer as the game revamps its graphics and introduces a new area that roughly translates to Wing World. The new area marks as the next and second expansion of the nine worlds in Revelation Online’s lore. The expansion will introduce a large new area that consists of dozens of floating islands, expand the game’s main and side stories, and introduce new gameplay features.
