Boundless, the Square-Enix Collective Sandbox MMO Launches Today
The epic sandbox voxel MMO, Boundless from the UK studio Wonderstruck officially launches on PC and Playstation 4 today. Every aspect of the worlds are connected – the politics, economy, crafting, and the actual community, are run and created by players. Boundless was in Early Access for four years, building slowly their community of loyal players, and now a fresh sandbox has been unveiled upon the world. One of the key features is being able to seamlessly travel between diverse planets as you explore the universe, no matter if you want to see a desert planet or travel to a tropical volcanic planet. It’s available for 39.99 USD on PC and PS4, and also has a deluxe edition for 59.99.
Starting with your first humble campfire, will you live a nomadic life in the wild, or found a new settlement with your allies from which to grow your empire? You can rally citizens to expand your city, competing to become the capital of your world and claiming the title of Viceroy. Will you build a citadel, drive the economy, or craft masterpieces of technology? Join the hunt for exotic creatures, develop your homestead, or seek new horizons? Everything in the game is created by players – so if you want something, you’ll either need to craft it yourself, or trade with others.
“For me, the appeal of Boundless has always been the opportunity it provides for gamers to create a constantly evolving universe, allowing every player, whatever platform and whatever region, to play together,” says Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix West. “It’s what makes Boundless a unique prospect, because whichever path you choose and whichever role you play, it takes place in a single, unsharded universe in full view of every single player. Actions have real meaning.”
Playing Boundless you can:
Colonise planets by yourself or join a settlement with others and grow your Beacon into the capital of the world with the Prestige system
Craft hundreds of items including building blocks, tools, weapons, food and much more
Spend your hard-earned skill points in the Skill Tree and tailor your character to how you want to play the game
Complete objectives, feats and events to earn rewards and Experience Points to level up your character
Build and maintain a Portal between worlds for you and others to use
Trade items with others or set up a shop to sell and buy items while you’re off adventuring
Seamlessly travel to new worlds and discover different creatures, resources, block colors and user-generated creations in an ever-changing universe – each world automatically regenerates areas that are not protected by a Beacon and returns it to its original layout, creating new and much-needed resources for you to collect
