Are there any good MMOs where you are in a modern or futuristic City?

Not Star Wars, Secret World  or Star Trek, but like a more realistic MMO that takes place in the near future, and is less fantasy and jumping around with swords?

    Nope, you might as well play gta multiplayer.

    Neocron comes to mind... not sure if it's still around though.
    And it's not exactly "near" future either. (Though closer than Star Wars/Trek)

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    Heh, I thought that would be true. I even made a cool character in a suit. Then I was dropped into a medieval village to kill a bunch of monsters with my sword. WTF!?

    As to the OP... click my signature  ;)

    Wildstar really is the best one as a true mmorpg, you could give swtor a try but its really shallow other then the story.

    It still has some high fantasy elements, but I agree, it's refreshingly different from most MMOs.

    A bit of a stretch, but The Crew is a driving MMORPG set in the present, with a full map of the United States including cities that you can explore.
    "The ability to speak doesn't make you intelligent" - Qui-gon Jinn in Star Wars.
    After many years of reading Internet forums, there's no doubt that nor does the ability to write.

    DCUO possibly. If you are after a realistic and gritty future city environment, something akin to Bladerunner, then I can think of none.

    Also a stretch, but if the title's "being in a City" part is your main goal, Millennium City in CO is detailed and fairly large. Neatly planned with different zones, actually I think it could be working in a SimCity too...
    (different residental areas, an industrial zone, etc. with a logical roadmap - for speedsters I mean, but most superheroes are flying anyways :wink: )

    edit: for a hint, a quick circling around for the respawn points, it's not the entire city but you can see the scale of it https://youtu.be/VjxSqzNzNqk  (btw. lowbie flying is way too slow :wink: )

    one which was future based but still seems to have features of modern day to me was anarchy online
    have to admit most future mmorpg are almost star wars like

    It's simply a thousand times easier to build rolling hills and drop down some trees than it is to plan a city. Lazy bastards.

    Wait for The Division I guess.
    I would've said The Secret World, but you already ruled that out.

    Planet Calypso has modern/futuristic setting, but it's mostly open terrain, not cities.

    The Crew if you like racing games.
