Open World Sandbox Game Boundless Announced

By Brandon Fusco,
During the Sony Press Conference at Paris Games Week, a new survival crafting sandbox game entered the ring. Boundless features cross platform play between PC and PS4 where all players inhabit the same universe.

Gamers will be able to explore all manner of worlds, hunt for resources, fight for survival, and make friends along the way. If you find a plot of land that you like, you can claim it for your own or share it with your friends. Taking down the toughest enemies, each world's Titan, will reward you with rare resources that allow the construction of floating platforms and airships. If you don't have those yet, a grappling hook will allow you to climb to otherwise inaccessible locations for exploration. Don't like where you are? Step through a doorway to a completely different procedurally generated world.

Those are just a few of the basic things you can in this game. To get an idea of the breadth of activity, the developers offered up a few more:
- Hunt for creatures in dangerous areas and sell the rare loot and materials you find to non-combative citizens.
- Offer your services as a master-builder to other citizens and do honest work for coin.
- Collect the weirdest creatures from across the universe and open a space zoo (!), then charge citizens coin to visit.
- Create amazing sandbox contraptions like people cannons and hyper-efficient crafting machines, and then sell copies of the blueprints to other players so they can create them too.
- Collect the most valuable and rarest resources from across the universe and open a shop that citizens will flock to.
- Open a Portal hub, connecting your world to distant worlds across the universe and allow citizens to travel, for a fee of course!
- Become a Boundless real estate agent, by searching for and claiming the coolest plots of land and then selling them to other players for coin.
- Craft the coolest wearables, the tint them to perfection and open a boutique fashion store.
The developers' "ambition is to build the ultimate open-world sandbox filled with real players, toys and mechanics," and it looks like they are off to a pretty good start. When we have more information about this upcoming PS4 game, we'll let you know.

We've got the full list of Boundless (EU) trophies - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
