Two things have to be made clear about the collection of 2010 new free mmorpg (massively multiplayer online RPG) in this article. First, not all new free mmo games collected here could be strictly termed free mmorpg. The reason is for the collection is two-fold. One is that although 2010 has seen and will see tons of new mmorpg, but the developers are always saying their mmo games are free to play and even pay you to play. Therefore, I ignore such advertisement rhetoric, yet only list some mmorpg I personally believe them promising. The other is that since some mmo games are still in development, I just brought a brief account of them and may not have a in depth coverage of the new mmorpg listed below.
Second, selecting means deleting: while you decide what to select you have to decide what to delete. So the sacrifice seems unavoidable, though it may be a great loss. The selected free mmo games cannot be satisfactory to all, but my sincere hope is happy everyday.
