Experience limitless content and create brand new worlds in this brand new MMORPG title. Legends of Aria (previously Shards Online) is a sandbox MMORPG created by Citadel Studios. Headlined by the former lead developers of Ultima Online, Legends of Aria allows for servers both official and community run to have different rulesets and content, allowing players to find a universe that fits their exact playstyle.
Not only that, but it’s the first MMORPG of its kind that legitimately allows you to host and moderate not just a single game world, but an entire universe of connected game worlds, so users can customize every aspect of your servers’ gameplay experience from character development, to combat, to items and equipment, to monsters and AI.
Along with player housing, skill-based character development, deep storylines and lore, crafting, animal taming, PvP, dungeons and more, Legends of Aria has everything a diehard MMO lover could want.
In the past two years, as the monumental success and popularity of sandbox titles like Minecraft began to shake up the preconceived notions of publishers and other ever-hungry profit gods, it's becoming a much more widely accepted notion that players actually want freedom in their games.
