UK studio Wonderstruck has been working on a very ambitious MMO over the past few months….it’s called Boundless, and it lives up to its name. Imagine No Man’s Sky, but without boredom….a galaxy of things to do, people to meet and quests to conquer.
Open-world in every sense of the word, Boundless encourages players to form communities and spin the lore themselves: the politics, the economy, the crafting and the communities are the sole creation of those playing the game.
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
“For a game like Boundless, which relies on the community to create a constantly evolving universe, allowing every player, in every region, on every platform, to play together was always vital,” says Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix West. “Because one of the really important, unique aspects of Boundless is that – whichever path you choose within the game, and whichever role you play – you do it in a single, unsharded universe in full view of the entire player-base. Which means that your actions have real meaning.”
What heights will Boundless reach? The game launches September 11, 2018 on Playstation 4 and PC. An Early Access version is on Steam right now.
