  1. If you want a game added or you think there’s a game on the list that is not a sandbox please post in the forums, or post a comment.

  2. Why isn’t Perpetuum on your Sandbox list page?

  3. Another you could add is 0x10c (by Mojang/Notch of Minecraft)
    http://0x10c.com/

    • I’m going to wait a bit before adding 0X10c. Judging from what I see on the website and forum its still to soon to know exactly if this game will be released as a sandbox. Also this list is for a list of sandbox MMO’s. This game looks like it’s just singleplayer/multiplayer.

      Thanks for the hot tip though..

  4. Someone should write an article on the definition of a sandbox. I recently saw one of those dime a dozen Asian theme-parks say it was sandbox because it had craft-able clothes and armor. Personally, I think the player needs to be able to permanently change the environment (housing, forts, terrain), but I have heard others say that it shouldn’t have a quest plot line (player driven content). PVP is a whole nother arguement.

  5. Hi,

    Why is wurm and Xsyon listed but not in red highlighting as the other games?
    Thanks

    • The gray means they’ve already been clicked on and the red means you have yet to click on that link. No special reason… If you delete your cookies you’ll probably find they’re all red.

  6. Factions is a 4 year old project still in development but nearing early alpha stages. Definitely worthy of the list.
    http://www.factionsgame.com
    Unknown revenue model, no studio name yet, fantasy setting

  7. Please add Xenocell to this list:

    http://www.xenocell.com/

  8. Pingback: hjeuhketv

  9. Pingback: dzvysrqcc

  10. Pingback: Sanibel Real Estate

  11. Pingback: click to play

  12. Pingback: spanish fly

  13. Illyriad is a sandbox MMORTS. Could you please add us to your list? Thanks!

    GM Luna

  14. The links for A Tale in the Desert and Ryzom are not working properly, they link to sandoxer.org/www.atitd.com etc. Thought you might like to know

  15. You should add Topia Online to this list. One of the greatest true sandboxes I’ve ever seen.

    http://topiaonline.com/Home?redirectPath=%2F

  16. Don\\’t forget Salem! (based on Haven & Hearth and by the same Devs)

  17. Please add Afterworld: Survival into the list. It\’s free to play and currently under live development. It has been establised since 2006 and has recently undergone a transfer to a new gaming engine.

  18. You should add Albion Online to the list, it’s a mmorpg in development that aims for closed beta around autumn

  19. Shores of hazeron!

  20. Another you could add is Divergence online

  21. Topia online is 25$ to play beta

  22. Gloria Victis is an MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) with a great focus on classic roleplay. The world is inspired by the medieval Europe and Near East with fantasy elements such as mythical creatures from Slavic folklore.

    Gloria Victis will operate on a non-target combat system. The player will have to aim and attack in the right direction and from the right distance. The missiles will follow the laws of physic and will not be homing. Dexterity and tactics will matter in combat.

    Player will have freedom in building their character using special stats and skills, but we will generate ready paths for those players, who’d rather follow something premade.

    Magic in GV will be an elite skill that only few will possess. It will be mostly based on illusion, alchemy and occultism.

  23. can you please add the data in which each one of those games were added to the list? this way becomes easier for us to search for “new” sandboxes. believe me, some of us do relly on that list :P

  24. How about Divergence Online? Its still in its closed Alphas, but from what I\’ve seen it looks like its going to be a pretty successful game once its finished.

  25. Hey all,
    Just quick up date, Life is Feudal has a Indiegogo campaign going, just started today. If you like sandbox games it’s surely one to take a look at. Well it’s still ticking along, head over to the Indiegogo campaign to take a look.

  26. Wurm online should be on list good solid game if a bit of a steep learning curve

  27. Hey, Can you add Brutal Nature? Its a FPS-Voxel mining sandbox survival game. Free to play atm and lots of fun!

  28. Star Citizen is/will be technically a sandbox game.

  29. Mortal Online is FTP, just so you know.

  30. Life is Feudal: lifeisfeudal.com historical/medieval MMORPG, 100% sandbox – player driven content, full loot open world pvp, full world terraforming. Currently in pre-alpha state. Going to be buy2play model, with a free2play starter island, no subscription.

  31. Hello, I was Hoping you could add our newest project to your list. it is Called EverEmber 2.0. Its Retro 2D styled MMORPG, Its currently in Open Alpha Phase. Download at: skywardens. com/downloads

  32. I am sick to death of mmo and pvp. You cant spit without hitting a game designed around pvp or that has had pvp shoehorned into it. Of the games that do have potential, there is no option to host your own for you and your friends to go off and harvest and build as you like. The games that seem to come close to what I\\’m looking for are Wurm online, and Heaven and Hearth. But neither have servers available. Minecraft, terraria, they feel like watching a cartoon. That absolutely kills the immersion for me. If RUST focussed as much on the crafting adn building as it does on the pewpew, it would be a contender.So, sandbox with deep resource gathering/crafting/building and able to host ones own server (server emulators need not apply here). Does it exist?
