Just Curious... Why is this called an "MMO"?

Recommended Posts

I don't see why this game is even remotely an MMO. Its pure PVP FPS there.

On big maps like interchange with 16 players and additional 2 - 4 player scavs it's up to 20 players. Not too bad but sure not comparable to MMOs like wow. But nevertheless, why you even bother how who ever calls this mmo? Just play and enjoy.

MMO

An online video game which can be played by a very large number of people simultaneously.

Might not be the best way to describe Escape From Tarkov as a MMO but it has some features of it, maybe in the full release, the free foam mode will have more players than the 12 limit it has now.

The current version of Escape From Tarkov does not represent the final product, keep that in mind too

Well, even mechwarrior online with its massive 12 v 12 doesn't call itself an "MMO". When we talk about MMO we tend to think about a persistent environment and lots of RPG elements.

Ask one of the developers why they put mmo as a tag in their game then

Because it doesn't call itself an MMO.

"Escape from Tarkov is a hardcore and realistic online first-person action RPG/Simulator with MMO features "

Because MMO is a defining of big amount of players competing online, nothing much.

Because they plan to make it into a free roam mmo in the future, it will be 100% an mmo once the game is finished.

I think this is because a lot of people can do whichever they like. I think that it's quite interesting because this game is soo huge in action that sometimes u see that u know nothing..
