So we got a brand new MMORPG on the market that claims to be a “new kind of MMORPG” that emphasizes player cooperation and allows players to have a large amount of agency over the game world.
BitCraft is a sandbox MMORPG which encourages many different play styles ranging from farming, hunting, and crafting to city-building and social strategy, rather than emphasizing combat alone. The game incorporates elements of sub-genres such as survival games, sandbox games, role-playing games, city builders, and strategy games.
The game takes place in a single, massive, editable sandbox world for all players to interact with and to permanently change. Players awaken as a mystical being in the middle of the wilderness and will need to build shelter to survive. BitCraft has a skill system which let’s players master their skills as they practice them. All characters begin as a blank slate and players build up experience in the aspects of the game they like to spend time with.
BitCraft goes beyond exploring, crafting, trading, farming and skilling though. Players can choose to work together to tame the wilderness and create impressive towns and cities anywhere in the world. They can even unite cities to build empires across continents and oceans. At these levels BitCraft becomes a deeply social and strategic game.
