    Default Sandbox Games

    I am looking for a decent multiplayer sandbox game. Sub genre(Zombie Survival, Racing, Action, etc...) isn't super important.
    I just want to be able to explore and play with friends with few restrictions.

    PC Only. Any pay model is fine. I am not a huge fan of voxel games with low quality graphics.

    I already have:
    GTA San Andreas and IV
    Just Cause 2
    Test Drive Unlimited 2
    Terraria
    Infestation Survivor Stories
    Xsyon

    Thanks.

    Entropia Universe hands down.

    Depending on sub genra you may choose which planet you start on. But they are all available once you start. If zombies is your thing then I'd suggest Rocktropia and skill up a bit to take down the new boss "Zombie Kong" they are still balancing the spawning method but its been a lot of fun the first few spawning so far.

    The sandbox maps are huge though and after five years of playing I still haven't seen all the dark corners of the universe.

    If you do decide to play add me in game and I'll help out with the learning curve whenever needed.

    Do you want multiplayer? Or is single player fine?

    I've been looking into DayZ. It looks like it will be a top game later in development.
    Despite it's current issues I will still probably buy it soon.


    I have played APB Reloaded for around 1000 hours. It's one of those games where the developers don't really care about game quality and never really update it other than cash shop items. With the small 1sq mile maps and limited content I'm done with APB.(until a major update )


    Entropia Universe? I REALLY want to like this game but can't really get past the fact that the "real money market" is VERY reliant on buying things that can not be made by players. Other than that great concept and fun game.


    I'll look into Wurm later tonight.


    Thanks for the suggestions.
    I am still open to more.

    I'm not following you there.... The ONLY things that can be bought from the devs are the very lowest lvl beginner gear and bullets (well probes for mining, but thats a similar concept to bullets)

    Everything you buy in the game is bought from other players. They either looted it from creatures, dug it out of the ground themselves, or manufactured it from loot and minerals that they either got from mobs and dug out of the ground or purchased from those who did.

    *edit*
    Don't take my word for it though, check out these lists,

    http://www.entropedia.info/Chart.aspx?chart=Weapon <----------- all/most of the weapons in game
    http://www.entropedia.info/Chart.aspx?chart=Armor <---------- all/most of the armor in game

    on the right side of the charts is how they are obtained, TT stands for Trade Terminal which is the only stuff you buy from the devs, looted or crafted mean just that... that they are produced by other players through hunting or crafting.
