Snail Games Announced Two New Sandbox MMORPG: Dark and Light & Voyage Century 2
Dark and Light
Also known as Savage Horizon, the development of Dark and Light has a really long history and by long history I actually mean 12 years. The game debuted at E3 2004 and Snail Games acquired the right to develope the game in 2008 but since then, Dark and Light has been kept under the radar. However, a new trailer has been released, giving us some sneak peak at this massive sandbox MMORPG.
Dark and Light is now powered by Unreal Engine 4. The expansive game world is one of the biggest selling points in Dark and Light. The game offers 40,000 square kilometers of land, which is 40 times larger than the world in World of Warcraft. Players can build or destroy houses, villages or even kingdoms in a world with high freedom. Dark and Light offers 12 races, 14 different classes and 3 factions. The game emphasizes the interactions between players and the game world. Players are encouraged to lead the way the whole game world goes.
Voyage Century 2
Voyage Century 2 is the sequel to Snail Games' first PC MMORPG Voyage Century which was released in 2004. After 12 years, Voyage Century 2 has been officially announced at ChinaJoy 2016. Unlike Voyage Century that focuses on sea warfare, the sequel adds more sandbox elements in the game so players can play as either an experienced captain, a gunner, a pirate or even a merchant. Besides, there is no main quests in Voyage Century 2, making players feel like they are living in a real voyage world.
