ArcheAge developer XL Games announces mobile sandbox MMO Moonlight Sculptor


Developer XL Games, which readers will know are the folks behind ArcheAge, and publisher Kakao Games are set to unleash a new mobile sandbox MMORPG onto the world. Say hello to Moonlight Sculptor, a new MMO based on the light novel The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor, which is arriving to the globe in May 2021 and is available for pre-registration right now.

Details on just what this game offers are a bit thin, as the official website and press blast largely focus on the aforementioned pre-registration campaign that offers up a variety of goodies for register as well as some gold and cosmetics for players that log in during the game’s first month of release.

What information is available confirms that Moonlight Sculptor takes place in the virtual game “Royal Road,” letting players take up either five classical classes — Alchemist, Archer, Mage, Paladin, or Warrior — or play without a class and become a Sculptor later on. The game promises to offer up “action-packed” quests, dungeons, and tournaments, small and large-scale PvP battles, and an offline mode that lets characters auto-level in hunting grounds.

Mobile MMO sandbox? Excuse me while I watch as they pull of something similar to the AA argument that planting crops in the world was sandbox enough to claim that genre, and have no other interest at this point other than something to enjoy train-wreck snacking over.

Especially given that this is XL, and to them sandbox is anything where the world isn’t 100% static in looks… there’s no way this is a real sandbox game, it’s just a PvP title with a few very minor things in it to ‘justify’ such a claim. Same as always. Calling it now.


Don’t do it. If Archeage taught you anything.


Just another sandbox. How many do we have now?

Non-pvp based good ones? Hmm maybe 1?


Im not sure about being a Sandbox game in a mobile device, seems kinda limited and full of automated functions.

And if your hero/toon cant do anything similar to Manhwa/LN then there’s no point playing this game.
