'Boundless' MMO Acquired By Monumental

by Rainier on Sept. 12, 2022 @ 8:34 a.m. PDT

Boundless is a huge open-world/open-ended sandbox universe where everybody plays in a single online universe.

Your homeworld in Boundless looks and feels unique, procedurally generated to look like no other. You don’t like it? Hey, acid rain can be a serious drag. No worries!

One of the big draws of Boundless is the ability to open portals to travel seamlessly between diverse planets as you expand your adventure across the universe; or watch the sun rise on a volcanic world before joining friends to prospect for precious resources on a desert planet.

Starting with your first humble campfire, will you live a nomadic life in the wild, or found a new settlement with your allies from which to grow your empire? You can rally citizens to expand your city, competing to become the capital of your world and claiming the title of Viceroy.

Will you build a citadel, drive the economy, or craft masterpieces of technology? Join the hunt for exotic creatures, develop your homestead, or seek new horizons? Everything in the game is created by players - so if you want something, you’ll either need to craft it yourself, or trade with others.

Monumental announced the acquisition of Boundless, the open-world sandbox game, where worlds are procedurally generated and there’s no critical path to follow. Rather, players are encouraged to forge their own path and run everything from politics to trading and building. Starting today, the operations transition will take place immediately with no interruption to the game service, and players can continue to purchase and play Boundless through Steam, and PS4.

James Austin, Director of Turbulenz Limited, said: “As we celebrate the fourth anniversary of Boundless, we are excited that the vibrant universe created by our dedicated community has found its forever home. Monumental is the ideal partner for the future of Boundless with their deeply experienced team with a passion for games and track record of operating live games at scale.”

Monty Kerr, Chief Executive Officer of Monumental, said: “Boundless is one of the most social and deeply engaging gaming experiences that we’ve encountered. We are excited to welcome Boundless to the Monumental family as we continue to expand our portfolio of unique and engaging games.”

That is, of course, unless you want some neighbors, in which case invite your friends and form a guild. Share land, resources, build amazing things and go on some adventures together. Compete with other guilds and become the most loved, or feared, group in the universe.

Offering gamers a single universe of connected worlds in which every element - the politics, the economy, the crafting and the communities - is entirely created and run by the players, Boundless ensures everyone is exploring, building, crafting, trading and collaborating within one single ecosystem.

Search each new world to discover the location of its ancient Titan. Once activated, these huge sentient fortresses menacingly stalk the landscape searching for anything they perceive as a threat. These apex predators are filled with traps and swarming with deadly Protectors.

Attempted alone, your only hope is to explore, survive and escape with a handful of valuable resources. If you’re feeling brave, call together all the citizens of your adopted world and attempt the impossible — defeat the Titan.

Boundless is a physical sandbox, where you can grapple up to inaccessible mountain ledges and slide down ice paths into the deepest caves. Harvest Titan’s mechanical guts and re-purpose them to make your own floating airships and ingenious contraptions. Fulfill your lifelong dream of becoming a space pirate! It’s the ultimate sandbox, create whatever you can dream of and share it with the world.

Boundless can be broken down into six main areas at launch - exploration, building, crafting, hunting, trading, and settlement-building - with players able to choose their place in a massive, open-universe sandbox. With the expanse of worlds around them constantly shifting and changing, players are encouraged to shape their role and play their part in a universe where anything is possible.

Key Features:

  • Colonise planets by yourself or join a settlement with others and grow your Beacon into the capital of the world with the Prestige system
  • Craft hundreds of items including building blocks, tools, weapons, food and much more
  • Spend your hard earned skill points in the Skill Tree and tailor your character to how you want to play the game
  • Complete objectives, feats and events to earn rewards and Experience Points to level up your character
  • Build and maintain a Portal between worlds for you and others to use
  • Trade items with others or set up a shop to sell and buy items while you’re off adventuring
  • Seamlessly travel to new worlds and discover different creatures, resources, block colours and user generated creations in an ever-changing universe - each world automatically regenerates areas that are not protected by a Beacon and returns it to its original layout, creating new and much needed resources for you to collect
