From sandbox games that let you explore vast terrains to MOBAs that offer exciting full-on team vs team action, there are tons of games accessible to Southeast Asia-based players. But since you have to expend resources including time, effort, money, and bandwidth to download these games, it makes sense to vet each option and download only the most popular games out there. Here’s 5 games that top the list.
With cool character skill animations and equipment sets and, as the title implies, some fierce-looking, elemental dragons, there are few online games in Malaysia that can top Dragon Nest. The well-designed, crisp graphics and fast-paced combat style will have you playing for countless hours at a time. Dragon Nest is free-to-play but you can purchase in-game credit for cosmetics, equipment enhancement materials, and rare mounts.
Final Fantasy XIV
Another MMORPG to hit SEA by storm is Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV. The game features 5 playable races – Hyur, Elezen, Roegadyn, Lalafell, and Miqo’te. You can level up your character by taking and completing either main quests and side quests. Levels are divided into multiple forms, focusing on resource-gathering or combat. With a myriad of challenging story and side quests, the game is never a bore to play even for the most experienced players.
World Of Warcraft
When it comes to top MMORPGs, the list isn’t complete without Blizzard’s gem. Currently, the game has more than 9 million players worldwide. And considering that WoW has a monthly subscription fee, having such a large community base still goes to show how popular the game is. World of Warcraft features a variety of playable races and classes, immersive gameplay, and intense battles including boss hunts and Player vs Player combat.
Coming out of the relatively nascent MOBA platform, Dota 2 is similar to chess. You’ve got these creeps that act as pawns, heroes with their own skill sets, and a map to let teams battle it out for the victory. Although this sort of gameplay only came about a few years ago, MOBA games like Dota 2 have evolved to become international events with tournaments grossing millions of dollars in prizes. There are currently 110 playable heroes in Dota 2, enabling teams to mix and match hero combos.
Ragnarok Online 2
As popular as its predecessor, Ragnarok Online, the overhauled version is able to retain the exciting gameplay and colorful environment that players fell in love with in the past. Ragnarok Online 2 is also able to continue the charming and fun storyline with familiar characters like the bouncy Poring and the monstrous Baphomet. The only difference is, you get to enjoy all of these classic features in rich 3D graphics.
SEA players have a generous spread of online games they can try out, but these 5 games should be on top of their Christmas list. Not only are most of these games free-to-play, but they also have regular patch updates, allowing for a consistently cheerful and exciting experience every time you log in to your account.
