    there is a new game that looks like it's FINALLY doing what others have failed when they promised a sandbox we all love and miss (pre AoS).

    The name may be a bit misleading, but just take two seconds to look at the front page:

    Greed Monger - A Crafting focused MMORPG

    what's that? Skills, player homes, RARES market? hrrrrrm :)
    I pray it does amazingly well and EA is forced to admit they made a HUGE mistake on ignoring all of us who championed the cause!!​

    Looks very interesting. I'm old skool and don't really like the first person way to move around. I will definitely give it a shot when it arrives.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Reading up on this a bit more. Seems its going to be free to play but they are going to sell the land. Interesting.

    yeah, it's an interesting way to handle it. I'm not sure if it's to prevent things like people placing houses all over the place. Or since you own land and not just the house that sits on it, it's the easiest way to arrange it?

    I'll be honest, I bought houses in UO for real life cash before, so I'm okay with it as long as it doesn't cost me a billion dollars ;)

    OMG...this looks realy cool - is this a dream? I always dreamed of UO looking like that! And if you watch the latest video, you can zoom out of 1st person which is mandatory for me!
    Realy looking forward to this!

    I don't really get the argument on how AoS killed UO. Yes - It did make it more item based, but even since AoS each year, people still find ways to do new things.

    It's like UO. Houses are in the real world.

    Instanced houses are where there is multiple copies of the same house zone, like in LoTRO. You may own the big mansion on the hill, but so do 100 other players.

    UO is done. Richard Garriott is back and making what UO vets and fans alike have been asking EA for the past 13 years to do. So long EA, nice job sucking.
