Sandbox MMOs are massively multiplayer online games with minimal limitations on the players’ capabilities to roam and change their virtual world. Players have access to a wide array of gameplay features or tools to create changes or impressions that have lasting effects. Common features that help define an MMO as sandbox are player housing, structure building, player-driven economy, crafting, farming and other open-world activities that affect the creation or modification of the game’s world.

PvP (player versus player) has always been a highly criticized criteria when it comes to MMORPGs. Some desire harsh-punishing and ‘hardcore’ systems that let you take the loot of your fallen enemies, some desire optional or casual instanced-based arenas, while others would rather walk a different path altogether. Here is a list of MMORPGs from the current decade with impressive PvP.

ArcheAge is making the skies of Erenor a little more dangerous with the upcoming ArcheAge: Legends Return 4.5 update on April 5th (4.5 update on 4/5…). Now you may remember that the last major update, the 4.0 Maelstorm Update, came only a few months ago in December.
So what’s the rush? Why is 4.5 here so soon? Well, XL Games is prioritizing the North American and European regions this time around and plan to launch the update before the Russian and Chinese regions. That is atypical, as usually updates start in Korea, get to Russia and China a few months later, and then Westerners get the updates about two to four months after that.
