Only the cookie cutter garbage we get nowadays... Asheron's call, from 1999, had a full open world 100x the size of any of the current games, without any need for zoning to explore it.
Finally! Someone who gets it! Thanks, Shadow9d9!
For freakin sakes, is an MMO open world concept so hard to understand? DAoC, AC and yes even WoW were open. But then came a slew of MMO's that subdivided their zones with zone walls and portals. No more climbing a mountain to find a hidden pass into the next territory, etc.
Hell, I am playing Tera Online right now, as far as I can tell so far, it's also open world design; but Warhammer was decidedly not.
