    Valheim is hottest new survival and exploration game.

    Valheim is a game about exploring a huge fantasy world inspired by Norse mythology and Viking culture. You start your adventure at the relatively peaceful center of Valheim. The further from the center you travel, the more challenging the world becomes. But you will also find more valuable materials that you can use to craft deadlier weapons and sturdier armor. You will also build your own Viking strongholds and outposts all over the world. Eventually, you will build a mighty longship and sail the great oceans in search of exotic lands … but be wary of sailing too far...
    Key features:
    Huge procedurally-generated world - explore and inhabit mystical lands, from mysteriousforests to imposing snow-topped mountain ranges and stunning meadows, complete with their own creatures of legend to battle and wildlife to hunt. Co-op PvE (2-10 players) - - Whether you want to brave the lands alone or venture with trusted allies, Valheim supports independent, player-hosted servers and unlimited world creation. We recommend playing co-op with 3-5 players. Punishing dodge & block based combat system with a wide range of weapons Build & sail ships - from flimsy rafts to imposing warships, build legendary vessels to conquer the seas and discover new lands. Summon and defeat vengeful primordial bosses of myth and legend, and collect trophies to progress and craft new powerful items Flexible house and base building system - raise mead halls, farms, settlements outposts, castles and more. Intuitive item crafting - forge the finest weapons and armour, and craft food and mead. Dedicated server- for players who want to run a persistent server. https://store.steampowered.com/app/892970/Valheim/

    Earth & Beyond Emulator

    Earth & Beyond Emulator is a Persistent State Galaxy game that you play exclusively over the Internet, which means that you and thousands of other players will mold and shape the game world as you play. If you create or destroy something, it stays that way after you've logged off. Basically, you play in a dynamic and changing virtual world.
    The game was released in 2002, so do not expect today's quality of graphics. But once you start playing you won't notice this.  The biggest problem with this game is that there just isn't enough time in a day to do all you want to do!
    Pilot your own starship, adventure in a massive galaxy, and take part in a thriving community.
    Alien encounters, fierce combat, cutthroat commerce, new discoveries, perilous quests, strategic alliances, diplomatic backstabbing await you!
    Races
    Progen, a genetically-altered and advanced race. Jenquai, great philosophers seeking eternal life. Terrans, the original humans of Earth. https://www.net-7.org/

    Albion Online - Big Changes for Season 11

    This Season introduces the 20v20 Crystal League, allowing all players to join fair and exciting 20v20 battles. Match rules are similar to the 5v5 League, but with an entirely new map similar to the old city fight map. As in the 5v5 League, Level 1 matches are knockdown only and offer perfect training for newcomers; risks and rewards increase greatly with each subsequent level, culminating in a final Level 6 match at the end of the season.

    Alongside the new 20v20 league, Crystal League Season Points have been rebalanced, and a new Daily Point Limit for the Crystal League has been implemented.
    Season 11 also brings other far-reaching changes and improvements to open-world guild warfare in Albion:
    World Boss Zone Improvements to make these zones into valuable Fame Farming hotspots and lead to more midsize open-world fights Castle Scoring Changes and Minimum Distance Increase to split large forces and reduce overcrowded clusters Ability to Skip Overcrowded Clusters and jump directly to an adjoining cluster to join the fight https://albiononline.com/en/news/season-11-starts-saturday

      ATLAS: Present and Future

      We have been at it since day one, that ugly and...well, let's just stick with ugly...launch. Even through the lag muck and server instability, you could read the stars and see the potential.  Right off the bat it was only for the tough, and we barreled through the glitchy log-ins, the shaky starter zones and the wretched "lawless" starting areas and found our way to the rafts.  Some were able to get to our island after 3-4 hours of learning how to tack, zig zag and fight through server borders and with a full stack of human hides, and then some were finally rescued after what seemed like days of being eaten alive by scorpions and crocodiles, only to quickly get used to dying to the cold, the wolves, the alpha horses, the water, the sharks and each other's general noob mistakes.

      Yes, with the known developer, we did try to ARK it, or Dark and Light it...hell, we've even tried to Life is Feudal this one....and Atlas is just NOT those games.  Some visuals and sounds are there, but the depth and options and functionality is just SO much more.  What really took the game from just another ARK expansion to, the potential mmo of the decade, was getting out on our first schooner, the SS Skjoldr (video below).  The experience was entirely PvE, but when you have 13 people packed on to a single vessel and the guys repairing the ship are as vital as the helmsman steering and the deckhands manning the sails, it became something I haven't seen in a game since our friday night flights on the Decimator back in SWG.

      We have had just a blast learning the game and surviving our island and our neighbors over the past couple weeks.  Though it may appear as if we are well off enough, growing from 30 actives day one, to more than double that now, we absolutely could use more folks interested in living the Atlas life.  Whether you are interested in navigating the high seas, captaining a brigand, farming the tundra, mucking through politics, taming elephants or exploring the massive (30-40 hours of sailing from one end to the other) world, it is all here and we have many members willing to help you get started.

      Here is a few screencaps and videos to give you an idea of what we have been up to:

      Atlas is the MMO that we have all dreamed about.  I challenge people to take a minute and list all the features that you think should be in a MMO.  Better yet, imagine that you were given a Billion dollars to design your ultimate MMO.  What features would you want in it?   Now, take that list and compare it to Altas.   Personally, I think it would be easier to list what is not in Atlas.  It's not a space or high fantasy game.

      Just a few features off the top of my head and not in any particular order:

      • Huge open world sand box game.
      • Player impact on the environment.
      • Eye popping graphics - I have been awe struck quite a few times playing this game.
      • Player immersion 
      • Housing and the ability to build anywhere.  Your imagination is the only limit.
      • Creature Taming/Handler 
      • Pets
      • Mounts
      • Harvesting / Gathering
      • Crafting
      • Trading
      • Weather and it's actual impact on the player.
      • Large scale pvp
      • Ships - Rafts all the way up to Galleons. Easy to create a small sloop and sail to your heart's content.
      • Sailing - I love this aspect of the game.  
      • Exploration
      • Survival game.
