10. Hurtworld

Hurtworld Official Early Access Gameplay Trailer

Combat in Skyrim can be slow and easy to master once your skill levels are high enough, especially without mods. So, if you’re looking for faster paced, twitch-based combat against other quickdraws, then check out Hurtworld. This survival MMO is meant to push you to your limits in terms of reaction and decision-making speed. You have to manage hunger, thirst, and body temperature in the different biomes, beware other players and hostile creatures, and gather resources to build structures, weapons, and vehicles.

How it’s like Skyrim: Hurtworld features a large open-world map, a ton of loot and weapons, and a variety of biomes to explore.

How it’s Different: The combat focus is fast paced FPS, it’s multiplayer play only, and it’s still in early access so it lacks in polish.

Hurtworld gives you a clean HUD to work with, meaning you don't have to fumble with menus and alerts during combat.

When you get into a vehicle, you can drive in first-person!
