This one snuck up on me, but open beta for combat (basically a battle royale, with castles, seige, etc) started 12/18/2018, with the full mmo beta scheduled for next year. It’s a medieval open world sandbox MMO with PvP and substantial PvE, based around building nodes that can be upgraded/crafted to spread civilization. There can only be 5 of the largest nodes in the world at any one time, so there’s a reason for PvP conflict aside from lamentation. When nodes begin to get large, the local monsters start to take notice and will raid the settlements for PvE goodness. Sounds like it could be the Shadowbane successor so many of us have been waiting for.
