MMOs You’ve Never Heard Of: LiteBringer, SamuTale, IcarusM, Stellar Warfare, Primordials of Amyrion, A3, Raid Shadow Legends, Second Extinction

Welcome back to another roundup of MMOs and MMO-adjacent games you’ve probably never heard of (or have entirely forgotten about).

LiteBringer: Tibia fans who aren’t opposed to BitCoin titles might want to take a peek at LiteBringer, a CipSoft MMO with a Tibia-development pedigree. This online RPG’s built with an “unapologetic” (their word) use of Litecoin blockchain. “If running an MMORPG for more than 20 years has taught us anything, it’s this: It’s the players who make any online game work,” the game’s announcement says. “That’s why giving all the power to the players with LiteBringer feels so thrilling.” (Cheers, Serhaza!)

SamuTale: Sandbox MMO SamuTale (shown in the header up top) is celebrating – wait for it – four years of early access, and it’s decided to cap that off by giving everyone a month of free play through October 15th. (Cheers, Royall!)

Icarus M: Valofe has formally launched Icarus M’s global edition this week; it’s the mobile version of Riders of Icarus, landing on both Android and iOS. Valofe is touting the title’s mount taming and combat in particular.

Stellar Warfare: Multiplayer online space RTS Stellar Warfare officially released into closed alpha last month; the indie dev behind it says it’s “fully playable” and just needs more playtesting, optimization, and bug fixing. (Thanks, Sconc!)

Primordials of Amyrion: This one’s definitely not an MMO, but it does offer very small-scale PvP, and it’s just launched into early access on Steam.

A3 Still Alive: MMO Culture reports that Netmarble’s mobile MMO A3 Still Alive is… still alive, although Google is confusingly translating it as A3 Steel Alive. Apparently it’s based on an older MMORPG called – you guessed it – A3, though this version’s more of a PvE and PvP battle royale title for MOBA.

Raid Shadow Legends: RSL is another new entry to our MMOs you’ve never heard of list; it’s a free-to-play online title that runs on both mobile. According to its website, it boasts a team collection mechanic, boss battles, a PvP arena, strategic play, a PvE campaign, autoplay, and a personal fortress.

Second Extinction: Finally, if ARK’s dinos weren’t doing it for you, take a peek at Second Extinction, an online FPS that pits you against these massive critters. It’s currently in early access but expected to launch next month.

Spot another MMO we’ve never (or only barely) covered? Drop us a note!

I was gonna post this as well.

This game is the most grossly advertised and shoved in your face game currently on the market.

Its hard to watch youtube for more than 15 minutes without seeing or hearing an ad for it, or seeing it even on a site like this one.

Really? Raid Shadow Legends?

Not only have I heard of it — I can’t STOP hearing of it, for the reasons already explained below — but it’s the one game I can absolutely say is not MMO -OR- MMO adjacent.

If RSL is an MMO-adjacent than the Google Chat channels my company sets up for work is an MMO-adjacent.

I’ve heard of all of these except Raid Shadow Legends. *snickers*

I was going to say, how the yotz does Raid: Shadow Legends get on a list of *anything* you’ve never heard of? They’ve been sponsoring about half of Youtube at this point, to the degree that even *crafting* channels are flogging it. “And before we do today’s macrame, let me tell you about my favorite game!” OnO

I’ve never heard of it if that helps any ;D But I watch little YouTube. I see that one getting a lot of flak in the comments so now I’m curious what’s up with that. Not that I care to play, just curious on all the hate it seems to have.

Raid is…. Notorious for multiple reasons.
One being they pay out the arse to hit as many gaming and gaming-adjacent Youtube creators for sponsored ads, and then enforce a very specific script alongside it. Which means, depending on who you watch, you’ll see multiple people all reading off the exact same lines and points in the exact same order.

Another is just how poorly they pay and how it works. Two content creators of similar subscription numbers could get vastly different offers. One got offered a few grand, while another who I do follow got offered… $180. And the only difference might just be gender or orientation–though it’s rather difficult to tell how much they pay out since I assume there’s stipulations that prevent them from revealing that if they accept it. Some people don’t and have even done videos talking about them though.

Arknights might crawl up to around ‘Raid’ levels of infamy as well given them stealing music from games for their own advertisements, but from all I’ve seen they produce ads for youtube and likely web banners, rather than pay for ads via sponsorships. And those ads are usually some of the most blocked around on the internet for one reason or another.

Well that all sounds super legit and well meaning from the company. #sarcasm.

Thanks for the explanation.

I laughed at Raid Shadow Legends.

Adding to my comment – SamuTale is a pretty neat game. I just finished playing my first session and hard to believe it’s made by one guy.

I also see the ads often on MOP, which makes its inclusion extra ironic.
