Indie sandbox MMORPG Wild Terra (official site, Steam) has been in early access since December, a nostalgia-driven medieval sim that allows players to build up settlements (and then tear them down!). Most recently, it’s released update 8.35, which introduces what the team is calling turnkey, ready-built player home kits to make town and fort setup that much easier.
Developer Juvty Worlds has issued Massively OP 270 keys for the game, worth $14.99 apiece on Steam, to distribute to our readers. There are no regional restrictions, other than the caveat is that the game must be available to you on Steam for you to use the key. Read on to enter to win!
Indie sandbox MMO Wild Terra has a big update this week that’ll make guild-oriented players particularly happy, as the castle system has rolled out to the live servers. Guilds can build everything from cheapie wooden forts to brick-laid castles that can actually withstand a siege, taxing guild members for cash, spice, and resources to make it all happen.
But of course, first you have to capture a castle from somebody else or bid on an unclaimed (or contested) one in the castle auction system, also new to game this summer. Once you do win a castle? Yeah, make sure you build walls first if you want to stop everyone from just waltzing on in (and ensure that you can appropriate tribute from the surrounding regions). If it sounds like a lot of work to do for a video game, it is, but maybe you should just watch the video instead. It’s the thing to do these days.
Who doesn’t love free things? How about free isometric MMO sandboxes? Wild Terra is putting itself in the free bin for the weekend as it runs an open stress test, nullifying its usual $14.99 early access buy-in. And you’re invited!
Studio Juvty Worlds notes that would-be testers can download the client or simply play in their Chrome/Opera browsers. “Actively testing the game, you’ll get a reward – game currency and Steam keys,” promise the devs. “Report any errors or problems found in Wild Terra.”
Most recently, the game played host to an in-game player wedding and patched spawn rates, planting systems, HUD, and auction bugs.
The event runs until July 24th, at which point servers will be wiped, the pricetag returns, and your carriage turns into a pumpkin.
One of the benefits of dipping your toes into a gritty sandbox is that you may get to shape the game world according to your own preferences instead of having to conform to the devs’ design. Wild Terra is adding shops and auction halls with its Update 8.31, but as construction projects that allow players to add them to their own settlements.
Also arriving in this week’s patch are the confusingly named “characteristics,” which are actually character stats like strength and dexterity. All players will start with five points in each stat and can increase them via use to a maximum of 12. There’s also a combined stat cap of 35 points, so you won’t be able to max out everything.
The devs said that these stats won’t be getting in the way of all of the other character systems: “Characteristics will only complement the gameplay, without worsening or interfering with other possibilities. They can be improved even if you have already improved skills.”

Here’s a possible option for your gaming weekend, especially if you have a hankering for some sandbox freedom: Wild Terra is opening up its doors to everyone from May 19th through the 21st to play as much as they want for free.
The free weekend is being coupled with a 15% off sale on the official site, bringing the price down to $12.74 for the early access title.
Wild Terra recently revealed that it is working on “unique rare equipment” that will be crafted using standard equipment and special drops from chests.

The MMO industry moves along at the speed of information, and sometimes we’re deluged with so much news here at Massively Overpowered that some of it gets backlogged. That’s why there’s The MOP Up: a weekly compilation of smaller MMO stories and videos that you won’t want to miss. Seen any good MMO news? Hit us up through our tips line!
This week we have stories and videos from Dragon Nest 2, Vainglory, Wild Terra, Heroes and Generals, Overwatch, Armored Warfare, Blade and Soul, Cloud Pirates, Pokemon Go, Eternal Crusade, Final Fantasy XIV, and Elsword, all waiting for you after the break!
Wild Terra made some major course adjustments this past week, as the game cracked down hard on grind and sped up both combat and crafting progression with Patch 8.22.
Every day, players will get rested XP toward both systems, offering those who don’t play as much a way to catch up. The update also contained improvements to the siege system to make it more “dynamic,” an arena server ruleset, and a treasure hunting system. The team said that over 2,100 players logged in to the game to test out the new patch since its implementation.
There was a smaller January 30th patch that fixed a few pesky issues, including (for some reason) inquisitors who use naughty language. Check out the video overview of Patch 8.22 after the break!
Eyeing a potential source of discord and disparity in Wild Terra, the devs said that they are taking steps to “reduce the gap” in the progress between players who dump a lot of time into the game and those that can’t.
As such, the team is prepping an anti-grind system that basically reduces experience needed to progress. Characters will build up reservoirs of “Craftsman’s Insight” and “Battle Focus” while offline or by using consumables, and these reservoirs will then provide a catch-up boost for returning players. Yes, it’s pretty much rest XP, although it looks like there are two types: one for crafting and one for fighting.
The team also demonstrated the new user interface and tutorial improvements, which you can see below.
Do you have any money left after all of that holiday shopping, travel, and dining out? Steam would very much like to have what remains, if you please, and is willing to trade you some discounted games in return.
Yes, the annual Steam Winter Sale is up and running, which means all sorts of deals for the frugal MMORPG player. We’ve compiled a huge list of all of the deals — including discounts of up to 90% off! — to help you navigate the holiday promotion. The sale ends on January 2nd. Hope it helps!
It’s no secret that Massively OP’s MJ loves sandboxes, so she’s always interested in checking out new ones. Wild Terra went into Steam Early Access this month, giving her a chance to dropping in and check out this indie game. How long can she survive before the Death Counter feeds? Tune in live at 5:00 p.m. as OPTV‘s infamous Stream Team brings you a first glimpse into…

This week’s Wild Terra patch is one of the biggest in the indie sandbox’s history, says developer Juvty Worlds, and for good reason: It’s overhauled combat with nine new weapon and armor skills; new combat mechanics including critical hits, parrying, dodging, and blocking; and a new system for damage-dealing itself that targets the specific body part and armor piece affected. If that monster smashes you in the head, don’t expect to walk away with a pristine helmet is what we’re saying.
On the server front, the studio has also created a brand-new server selection screen that rattles off game news, shows how many players are active, and allows folks to search for a proper server. That last part will come in handy as there are multiple servers with different rulesets, including two new ones live today: Vitios, an PvP server for international players with no areas of safety at all, and Bonium (heh heh), which is a PvE server for South America that limits PvP to “disputable lands only.”
, press release. Cheers, EzBreezy!
