Everyone Loves a Free One!


Who doesnt love a decent MMORPG session? We are not sure, and we wont be asking that question in any more depth!  But more to the point 'who doesnt love a free MMORPG session'?  No-one we hear you yelling, so look no further, we have done some delving and listed all the free-to-play MMORPGs we can find (no claims that this is an exhaustive list!)

So, whether you are a seasoned gamer looking for a new challenge, or are currently working out what the hell MMORPG means (Massively-Multiplayer-Online-Role-Playing-Game), we are sure we have found something to suit without you spending a penny!


We have listed and reviewed the first ten we found (no favouritism just came up first!) – the rest are in genre lists.

We would love to add reviews of the games – if you are a player and would like to submit a review of any of the games listed – please email to features@kewelworld.com for inclusion.
