Starting today, the Kickstarted post-apocalyptic sandbox MMO Edengrad is leaving its pre-alpha cocoon to clamber into a bigger cocoon called “early access.” With Patch 0.2.1, the title is officially in its alpha phase and can be played through Steam.
Edengrad puts players into the shoes of a post-apocalyptic survivor who leaves the safety of his or her underground shelter to try to make it in the harsh overworld. Expect to see a lot of typical survival sandbox activities, including foraging for food, keeping meters under control, crafting weapons, building towns, and fighting other players and the local mutants.
The team put out a trailer to mark the start of early access. It definitely warrants a watch for its oddity, as the trailer documents the life and times of a survivor who really, really loves his hatchet. Also, there’s a part where the guy kills another player and then tinkles on his corpse. Survival sandboxes, everyone!
