Enshrouded, the much-anticipated title from Keen Games, is generating quite a buzz in the survival gaming community, and rightfully so! With its upcoming Steam Early Access launch on January 24, gamers are eager to unravel the mysteries of this promising game.

If you’re wondering whether Enshrouded falls under the category of Massively Multiplayer Online Games (MMOs), let’s delve into what we know!

Is Enshrouded an MMORPG?

Yes, technically, Enshrouded can be categorized as an MMO. However, it’s important to note that it’s not strictly an MMO, nor has it been marketed as one. Described by the developers as a cooperative survival crafting action RPG,” Enshrouded allows up to 16 players to join forces and explore the mysteries of the fallen kingdom of Embervale.

Enshrouded seamlessly blends survival game elements, such as building and crafting, with a gameplay and combat system reminiscent of an Action RPG. What further sets it apart from other survival games (like Minecraft or LEGO Fortnite) is a robust skill tree, giving players extensive freedom to build their characters based on their preferred playstyle!

Enshrouded has already undergone a successful closed beta, and a free public demo was also available during Steam’s ‘Next Fest’ in October 2023. Adding to the anticipation, content creators have showered the game with positive feedback ahead of its Early Access launch on January 24.
