Written by Muqadas Wattoo | Last modified on:

The fictional universe, Geilinor, is divided into multiple states that the player explores. As you enter Geilinor, Gudrik welcomes you and explains you the basics. It differs from other games as it offers the player the flexibility of choosing his own goals and objectives rather than completing predefined targets. Since this is a multiplayer game, it offers the players to interact with fellows by means of trades, chats, or by collectively participating in various mini-games that are either competitive or combative. The player can also choose to complete various quests that the game offers apart from combats and levelling up support skills.

RuneScape is the only massively multiplayer online role-playing game to receive recognition by Guinness World Records for having more than 200 million accounts made. Developed and published by Jagex, the game was released on January 4th, 2001 and comes in three versions. Here we talk about four other MMORPG games like RuneScape. Happy gaming!
