Which multiplayer survival sandbox is the most like an MMO?

Post by TheHidden01 on Tue May 16, 2017 6:29 am


This original article is taken from Massively OP for discussion here.

A week or so ago, I took an ARK: Survival Evolved post out of our newsroom to write up, expecting something mundane. Iím an MMORPG player, after all; survival sandboxes look cool, but most give off the same non-persistent, ephemeral, could-fail-at-any-time vibe as emulators, especially the player-hosted ones for games in eternal early access, so Iíve always stayed away. But ARK has put a lot of effort (and cash) into cultivating incredibly high-quality mods, and thatís what got my attention and made me glad Iíd taken the post: An auction house mod in the game seems like exactly the sort of thing that helps this subgenre turn the corner from ďeverybody haplessly running around naked killing dinos and each other with crappy axesĒ to genuine persistence and social tools and server anchors. Far more than construction projects that youíre really only building to function as content for somebody else to tear down, anyway.

Letís say Iím looking for a good multiplayer survival sandbox ó MJís put together several lists for her new column already to choose from. But which one do you think is the most like an MMORPG and would most appeal to an MMORPG-first type of gamer ó and why?

not really sure if they fit in the mmo genre tho since they seem to be pretty limited server capacities like even 100 peoples server is not massively multiplayer to be honest.
