Anyone remember the first one? I do, full loot PvP. It has some interesting ideas. Not sure about the second one.
Become whoever you want in Mortal Online 2, the most hardcore first person sandbox mmorpg of all time, Thousands of players in one world.
From what the devs have told us, it sounds like a fairly safe sequel with the same absence of levels, where players are free to wander, gather resources, talk and fight and trade as they like. They haven’t specifically mentioned building, and I’d be rather surprised if there isn’t any, but it’s best not to take anything for granted. There will again be full, free PvP in which victors can take everything you own, this time in Unreal Engine 4, so at least the ganking jerkasses ought to look alright. Star Vault boast of a 400km² map too, so perhaps I’ll be able to lurk in the woods somewhere, shunning all contact and going gradually mad.
The biggest change we know about is the reduction of MO’s four character slots to just one, which they stress will be a more versatile one so players won’t be locked into one playstyle. As a big fan of living in a game world instead of sidestepping into a different character, I’m very curious to see how that will go. Expanding on the crafting system is a priority too, as players will choose “the blade or head of the weapon, a handle type and what materials these two parts are made out of”. They describe the resulting variety in craftable goods as “almost infinite”, a mathematician-baiting phrase I fully endorse.
