OP  12/03/12 7:04:27 PM#241

Small update. Original post edited.

Both Mortal Online and Xsyon have changed their payment models. Both games are now listed as

  • Subscription and free to play, free client
  • Cash Shop: No
Looks to me like both games are adopting a payment model that can be advertised as "free to play" but is in fact a model where you can try the game for free but need a subscription if you want to stay for longer. I believe it's an okay payment model, at least they didn't introduce a cash shop.
 
I hope that both of the games get more people checking them out with this change. I never played Mortal Online but my months in Xsyon have been amongst the most memorable in any MMORPG I played in the last 10 years. 

I maintain this List of Sandbox MMORPGs. Please post or send PM for corrections and suggestions.

From the original post:

What about Games in Development?

I list games that are playable by the general public. That means the games are either released or in some open testing stage. I do not list games in development that are in closed testing.

We have too many Sticky threads as it is, no one ever seems to look at them years after they have gone up and say "do we still need them". Look at the number of replies to some of them, they clearly need to go.

Love has been suggested before - but I didn't include it because it's not an MMORPG in the strict sense: as far as I know there's no character progression, no character skills. The developer doesn't call it an MMORPG as well, he calls it an adventure game.

I know that it's a borderline decision in the case of Love but I decided to be strict. Frankly, once I list games without RPG progression mechanics I also have to list 2nd Live, There and probably a bunch of those social games and a score of Farmville-like browser games. None of those are RPGs, but they are sandbox and online ...

---

And, be careful when you ask for stickies - or the staff here decides to bury the thread in the "Looking for Game" subforum where most people will never see it again.

 

Minor edit to the original post: temporarily removed Darkfall from the list. As of now there is no Darkfall playable by the general public. The old Darkfall is down, the new one not yet released. I'll make sure to add Darkfall again when the game gets released or has an open beta (if it should get one).

Grats to OP for keeping this list updated. Kind of sad to look at the Game List on this site and compare it to the amount of games on this list. Sandbox needs more love!

Though I'm happily playing Wakfu and Mabinogi :P

Salem? It's considered in beta, but getting a key is a matter of going to the website and getting one. The give a certain amount out every day or something. Has literally every feature you listed as a requirement.

Runescape is far from sandbox now. May as well call WoW sandbox now too.

Even with the combat upgrade, it still ticks nearly every box on OP's list - the only one that's questionable is the ability to effect the game world, though the latest update (the God statues) adds to that.

Thanks for the suggestion. I played Salem and although I personally don't like the game I will put it on this list as soon as it is officially in open beta.

I'm aware that the game is practically released since a few months (cash-shop is in business, "beta"-keys are readily available, no wipe planned before release). Still, I stick with the traditional definition of "open" beta. :)

Zombie - Dead but still moving.

Could I get clarification on this?

 

In-depth resource system. A resource system is considered in-depth if items can be made from raw resources that influence the resulting item (either it's stats or it's appearance is okay)

 

Would this imply different quality grades of raw materials, that when used to make an item, change the item because of the quality grade used?

Hello XAPGames.

Yes, quality grades would be a possible implementation for an in-depth resource system, but not the only possible one. Let me give you two examples for games I'm familiar with, Wurm and Ryzom.

Wurm:

Arrows for example can be made out of every type of wood, however arrows made from cedar take less damage and arrows made from maple are easier to craft. Thus players need to balance availability of wood with wanted attributes. Likewise with bows: bows from willow are superior but willow trees are semi-rare. Thus players need to make choices.

Ryzom:

Leaves are used for clothing and armour, but different types of leaves have different attributes, not only in colour but also in protection factor, weight or flexibility. Thus players need to decide what they want, focus on something or try to balance things.

Just different examples of what I'd call an in-depth resource system.

No AC1 then I am sorry this is not a sandbox list this is hey these are my sandbox games.

AC1 is very much sandbox. Everyone classes it as sandbox, in fact Darkfall was pretty much made up of UO and AC guilds all going on about the good old days.

 

Also Outer Empires no longer has iPhone and iPad support since it changed hands there is plans in the future but not yet. I love sandbox games played all on this list but you are missing some too. 

 

Star Sonata 2 has everything you mentioned. I like this game way more the Outer Empires but also has way more features why is that not listed? 

 

The only thing Star Sonata 2 fails on is open world you have to warp from gate to gate and this is only because once someone takes over the universe the whole universe is shuffled around at random. But then again you have to warp from gate to gate in EvE and Outer Empires.

Sandbox just means that you have the ability in the game to gather or loot materials and then create new items through a production process, and the ability to create persistent structures in the game like housing, etc.  Character development is not part of the consideration.

With regards to "on rails", any good sandbox MMO should offer "on rails" content as an intuitive way to offer depth, content, lore/story and in general an alternative on how to spend their time.

 

All of the extra rules or requirements to define Sandbox is just the opinion of the OP.

I must of suggested Star Sonata 2 in another Sandbox thread a while back I figured it was this one :P

The game is way more in depth than they make out I do wish they would list all features. Also 2D/3D action based gameplay a little like S.P.A.Z. feel to it. I didn't know it had all features until I was about a week into the game desovering new things that I never knew about you are probably best checking the WIKI for most information.

Is this considered a necro to bump this thread? Shame to let it die.

Age of Wushu is launching today and would fit this list.
