    Good overview of the various games. Black Deserts looks interesting to me. Thanks for creating this, Zzar!

    The Repopulation is the main one on that list that has my interest.

    Nice video. I'm already interested in Archage, The Repopulation and Origins of Malu. Now I'll keep an eye on Black Deserts, too.

    Nice video.

    At this point, ArcheAge is most attractive from the games listed, for me.

    Am curious if any of these games end up being successful.

    More of an overview than a deep comparison of all mentioned games but still a decent watch.

    Hadn't heard of dragon's prophet so learned something :)

    Really good vid: Great way to introduce and grow awareness of these mmorpgs-sandbox.

    Suggestions:

    • There's Topia Online (KS atm): Really interesting concept.
    • Is Age Of Wushu anywhere near sandbox? Idk.

    Just curious, but do you guys ever have doubts in games like Black Desert and ArchAge due to where they are made? I know I do. Very large doubts. I actually can't think of one game from Korea that I really loved. Usually its a pretty cool system and what not but for some reason I feel like the games are hollow. Now don't get me wrong, I'll probably keep an eye on these games (thanks for pointing out Black Desert), but my expectations are very very low.

    Either way, thanks for the vid man!

    ArcheAge is a hybrid MMO it's themepark and some features you would find in a sandbox.

    On top of that you left out Age Of Wushu.

    We won't see ArcheAge in the west until 2014 at earliest  the first version outside Asia will be Russia.

    Repop is one of the ones I anticipate the most as well, seeing as how much it reminds me of SWG :)

    Hehe yea, we've seen so many themeparks fail though, perhaps the trend can turn now that we got some new sandboxes launching.

    I'm sure archage will do well in asia though.

    Yea, no time for in depth with so many games in one video :) But I will be doing those for most of the games individually as soon as beta doors are opened and NDA's are lifted. :)

    In some ways yes.

    I always expect grinding, goldfarms and anime faces when I hear a game is made in asia.

    But Let's hope these prove that wrong :)

    Hm, I gota admit I never really paied close attention to Wushu, so I was not aware it was a sandbox. Thanks for the feedback, I've allready gotten enough info's from this thread and the comments, to half fill another video on the same subject :) Keep em comming.

    Good video  - thank you!

    Generally it seems like that most of those sandbox games are "hobby projects" - not really enough funding for AAA game - which is shame. Something needs to be done in MMO genre to push it forward - and I think that sandboxes are most natural way to evolve. But with limted budgets there seems to be very high risks that most of those games are either being unplayable (lot's of bugs, poor user interface, poor graphics) or unfun (bad game mechanisms or game world). I would except that most of those game are going to be failures - totally forgotten after couple years. And from that industry beancounters make logical decision that sandbox games are poor investment. 

    Hopefully - my favorite - Repopulation survives (really tired to fantasy games).

    Thats because Age of Wushu isnt a sandbox and wasnt ever advertised as such before shipping here. It a generic Chinese style fantasy/historical themed MMORPG with mostly traditional MMORPG elements as they are very common in Chinese and many other Asian MMORPGs. There are many people listing features as sandbox features, throwing words at you without explaining them and calling AoW a sandbox, that have nothing neccessarily to do with sandbox, are not features at all but simple objectvies/tasks and are just a really big stretch from reality.

    If you decide to take a look at it I recommend to read up how the following stuff really works, not just what you expect. I emphasize this because it was far below any of my expectations. Some technical reviews, videos or just playing it for real. I empasize to look up especially the (lack of) consequences, lasting effects, and limitations most of them have.

    guildfortifications/housingplayerstalls/vendor npcs, crimerate andbeheading, policing/patroling, spying and kidnapping, territorial control (static) farming, crafting and foodsystem.

    I dont want to push my opinion on you so i tried to highlight some of the most popular "features" being constantly pointed at. I recomend to look them up before accepting and reciting them as features of a sandbox or relevant features at all. It wont take long as nothing is really deep or complex by traditional sandbox standards.

    At beginning for me it was kind like "well okay doesnt irk me, next feature" but when it went on with almost any point of these "sandbox feature" lists flowing around about Age of Wushu I kinda felt like there is a conspiracy going on to mock me because almost nothing that is highlighted is actually in any way special, sandboxy or even just interesting.
