Now, this game is F2p and has premuim options, as f2p you can build anywhere ingame and are caped at lvl 20 in skills. You can do anything ya please. However to own land and prevent others taking it over, ya must deed the land. Now premuim is 10 euros (13.50 usd) covers 2 months. Ingame currency is silvers ya buy with 10 euros. a deed form costs 10 silvers + theirs a monthly upkeep (usually average is 1-10 bucks a month) and costs silvers to upgrade to expand the land you intend to claim.
Now this game very very fun. Graphics arent great, but arent the worst. Animations arent really their yet, but their are reworking their engine, adding much needed animations and new graphics to the game. Compaired to all games (sandbox) i've played i am going to go ahead and rate this game at a 9/10. Sure animations and graphics could be a draw back, but gameplay and game mechanices make up for this.
Been playing this game for almost a month now, Its very user friendly and easy to learn. The community is the nicest folks youll ever find. Their is alot of servers also, PVE and PVP , you can sail on a boat to the other pve servers or take a portal on over to the pvp server. Now i dont know much bout wurm pvp, besides you can seige their homes, FFA loot system, theirs mission systems (for religions) and alot tougher Mobs that spawn withem. Once you kill off a deeds guards you can i beleave drain their upkeep into your own (to a certain extent)
For pve, their is 0 pvp, sure u can duel and spar, however these servers are the most populated and is mainly for building, exploring,trades and ofc hunting animals. patchs to this game have been pretty regular also , so far in the 25 days ive been their, ive seen about 10-15 patchs added to the game, sure they had a few issues, but the devs quickly fixed them up. I noticed the devs do listen to the community but as all inde games, they are a small dev team the employs the power of the community ( volunteer devs and a few paid) to helpem out.
This is a very fun game and is a true sandboc to me, You are not limited, you can do any skill, and build anything. Theirs alot of hidden skills ingame ya must unlock and perks to doing certain things. I love this game , even after almost a month in, i still got over a years worth of stuff planned to do. Kuddos to these devs and their vision, first game i ever encountered with seems like never ending content to keep any1 occupeid.

Hope this info is helpful to you all. The game isnt for everyone, But is alot of fun. Just gotta overlook the animations. (it is a 2d game with 3d elements, even though it will feel like its fully 3d, it is also ran under java). Enjoy folks, my take on it :-)
