Cryptic Studios developed this role-playing game, available on Xbox in 2015 – and it still has a massive fan base years later. The game features real-time combat and a wealth of iconic Dragons and Dungeons locales and monsters. Neverwinter is fiction based on Forgotten Realms of Neverwinter from Dragons and Dungeons, but it is a single game that is not part of preceding Neverwinter Night series.
In this thrilling game, astral diamonds are the most useful currency types. They work in synergy with Zen, which is the original money currency in Neverwinter. Every player will need this currency for specific services in the game, including time-savers and auction house as you play. Players need the diamond as well because it helps the player to speed up the completion process of some activities in the game.
3. STAR TREK ONLINE
Perpetual Entertainment initially created this game, but later Cryptic Studios picked up the game from scratch and unveiled on February 2, 2010. Star Trek Online featured on-foot and spaceship battles and was split between ground combat and ship combat, where gamers take the role of an ensign that has received a battleground promotion to captain during a Borg Invasion.
The game places players in charge of their ship and crew within one of three factions, which are the Romulan Republic, the Federation, or the Klingon Empire. Players have the chance to immerse themselves in the future of the Trek universe as it moves into the 25th century: a time of discoveries and changing alliances.
The game initially released for Windows computers in March 2013. It is a cooperative free-to-play third-person shooter action game set in a developing sci-fi world. Warframe was developed and published by Digital Extremes. In November 2013, the game was ported to the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One in September 2014. In November 2018, Warframe was also ported to the Nintendo Switch. Currently, Warframe is in open beta, but it is planned to be ported to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 upon these consoles’ releases.
In this game, players can run on walls, bend time like Neo from the Matrix and make portal-like wormholes to traverse the play area; this game is like no other third-person shooter game in the market. In this game, players are able to use a variety of weapons and abilities to complete their missions. Warframe includes both player elements versus player and environment versus player. The game is supported by microtransactions (ugh), which enables gamers to purchase in-game stuff using real money, but provides the option to make them at no cost through grinding as well.

On May 28, 2014, the game was released for Microsoft Windows but discontinued on December 17, 2018; due to the availability of the online marketplaces of these platforms and service to these platforms.
