There are many online free MMORPG games like RuneScape available if you are looking to move away from RuneScape or are just looking for a good online or downloadable game with a fantasy setting.
RuneScape has long held one of the top spots amongst the online and free MMO genre. This makes it hard to find a great game like RuneScape amongst the hundreds of RuneScape clones but there are a few stand out games that offer a similar player base, game style and level of polish.
This page features many fun and free MMORPG games like RuneScape with most being available online (no download, playable in your browser) but some do require you to download their game client.
This page only features the top games from the popular online MMORPG genre , but there is a comprehensive list of free online rpg games available.Knight Online is a free to play alternative to RuneScape. As it is free to play the game relies on its Powerup Store for revenue. Players are able to purchase special premium items and services from this store, such as priority server access (great if you play during peak hours) and limited edition items to enhance and customise your character.
Players may join one of the two factions within the game (El Morad and Karus). While swapping sides is allowed it is a long and reasonably expensive task (so if you are planning to play with friends, make sure you know which faction you are planning to join).
Overall the gameplay is more reminiscent of World of Warcraft than RuneScape but is still a great fun alternative to RuneScape (with better graphics).
