Looking to throw caution to the wind and get a little wild this April Fool’s Day? Wild Terra is opening up its European-based server to anyone who wants to give the game a go without putting any money down.
The free trial weekend is being run in conjunction with a 30% discount, which takes the fantasy sandbox down to a pittance.
There’s another good reason to check in with Wild Terra this weekend, as Fools’ Day is going on. The animals are acting “very strange” and players can down a special Wodwose Miner mob to earn a fool’s chest with unique hats (which are Halloween-themed, but nevermind).
If you were sad that you missed out on winning a copy of Wild Terra earlier this week, you’ve got another chance now! Massively OP’s MJ has a fist full of game codes to give away. That’s a $14.99 value that can be yours just by entering the giveaway while watching MJ try to survive in the wilds of this sandbox. Join us live at 6:00 p.m. for your chance to win.

February was a big month for MMORPG sandbox Wild Terra. Developer Juvty Worlds heavily overhauled the taming and mount system in the game as of its 0.9.50 patch, as well as added new spear types, new damage types for metal armor, destruction mechanics for buildings, new projectile animation graphics, and improved territory control mechanics.
In celebration of the update, Juvty has issued Massively OP a bundle of keys for the B2P game, worth $14.99 apiece on Steam, to distribute to our readers.
Eagle-eyed readers will recall that we tried granting these to commenters earlier today but ended up DDOSed by keyseller bots, so we’re dispatching those that remain in a manner a bit more friendly to site uptime!
There are no regional restrictions, other than the caveat that the game must be available to you on Steam for you to use the key. Read on to enter to win!
A new year, a new batch of survival games! Yes, the genre has become so popular that one guide, no not even two guides could contain all of the survival goodness. More keep cropping up. I certainly can’t say as I mind, since this is the style of game that has been giving me the feeling of having an impact on my environment. And it’s not all the same collection of zombies, although there is still plenty of that. It is interesting to see what new takes developers are bringing to the table. Want to do a survival reality show? There’s a game for that! How about living like a viking? Yup. What if you want to be the psychotic killer that survivors are trying to, well, survive? Got you covered. Fell like upping the ante and surviving via VR? There are a few of those available.
If you are looking for a new survival to sink your teeth into, here’s the addendum for some newer games in development as well as some newly discovered ones since the last mega double guide. Note: This collection will be a mix of multiplayer and single-player titles with some uniques thrown in.
Bears! What are they good for? Hides in Wild Terra (say it again)! Except that actually getting those hides proved a lot harder than players expected because the game never communicated that bears were supposed to be big challenges taken on by well-equipped groups. Instead, players have been falling into a habit of using exploits to kill bears, which isn’t good for the game and is probably not much fun for the bears either. The latest dispatch from the developers states that the intent is to make killing bears harder to exploit while also making it much more certain that you can get some skin off a bear’s back when you succeed.
The developers are also working on the issue of an insufficient amount of iron ore in the world and the attribute issues, with one attribute (intellect) being uninvolved in combat entirely and artisans being unable to effectively fight in any context. New lighter armor is being introduced to allow for lightly armored melee fighters, iron spawns are being reworked, and new systems are being introduced to allow the Corrupted Lands to be free of unintended “ghost” enemies. Check out the full post for all of the details to see how the game is patching up its post-launch issues.
Another December, another Steam sale to entice you to spend money on games you don’t have time to play just to have them for a rainy day! Here’s a quick look at what’s on the list for MMO and survival sandbox players.
It’s a great day when a game launches! And today’s that day for Wild Terra. That means Massively OP’s MJ gets to go in and check out the new servers and start a new life in this indie sandbox. Will it be smooth sailing, or will she struggle against the forces of nature to eke out her living? Will she even live? Tune in live at 8:00 p.m. as OPTV‘s infamous Stream Team brings you a launch-day look at…

It’s a big day for Wild Terra, as the indie isometric sandbox we’ve been watching for years is officially launching today on Steam. No more early access! The B2P MMO is regularly $14.99 but should be marked down 34% when it launches at noon.
The launch update opens four more servers for a mix of hardcore, casual, PvE, PvP, and regional choices. It also tweaks the crafting UI, resources, equipment popups, and miscellaneous bugs. Further, Jutvy Worlds says, “Due to the opening of new servers, mines, sieges and auctions are temporarily disabled so that all have equal chances for development and their capture. About the end of the restrictions will be notified in the news. For the same reasons, the appearance of monsters in the Corrupted Lands is temporarily disabled.”
The launch trailer is tucked down below along with our last stream of the game – anyone giving it a go? We’ll be streaming it on OPTV this afternoon, so stay tuned!
‘Tis the season for surprise launches, fa la la la and so on. Wild Terra is officially launching on December 18th, bringing the game out of its test state and into the wild and woolly world of just being live. It’s a process starting on December 15th, with the game shutting down its current servers and forcing you to pick which of your characters you most urgently want transferred to the new live server.
Veteran supporters of the title will get a bit of a headstart, though; they’ll be able to play on the new servers over the weekend, with the first wave of players being admitted on December 16th. But December 18th remains the for-real big-time actual launch, and it will be difficult if not impossible for it to be more launched. So start thinking about who you want to save among your characters now, and prepare for the transition this weekend.
Emerging from a rough stretch of server issues, Wild Terra has apologized to its testers and offered to make it up to them with some good old-fashioned bribes.
“We experienced great problems with the stability of the servers in last three days,” the team said. “In compensation all players entering the game before the end of the week will receive a premium scroll for three days which you are free to use at your discretion.”
Some of the fixes for these issues were incorporated into the fantasy sandbox’s newest patch. This update also added tutorial quests for new players, the revolution that is simple daily quests, and a redesign of several user interface windows.
Wild Terra is currently 15% off at $12.74, in case you want to get into the Steam early access program.
Hey, you. Yeah, you, dude leeching candy from the bucket you bought “for the neighborhood kids.” And you, lady still trying to decide between “Princess Leia” and “lazy zombie” for your costume (go Leia, duh). Put all that aside and get into some MMOs instead! Halloween is only one night in real life, but in MMORPGs, it goes on for days or even weeks. Some studios will probably even forget to turn it off! Others will let you run around with a flaming pumpkin head mask for all eternity!
Here’s what we’re looking at this year for Halloween across the MMORPG verse.
Ever feel lonesome while playing Wild Terra? No need for that with the latest patch! You can tame animals and have them follow you around, serving as your new set of best friends as you adventure through the world. Of course, the patch also adds new guild-based systems including guild warehouses to the game, so perhaps you’ll notice the difference between having lots of friends playing the game and having a small army of animals following you around, but you go to war with what you have, right?
The patch also adds in new scrolls to reset your stats, several UI confirmation windows for various actions, improvements for castles, and a large array of bug fixes. If you’ve been hoping to be able to reset your stats or just hoping that you could have an army of animals following you about at all times, this is the patch you want.
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!
