Community-driven MMO Worlds Adrift from Surgeon Simulator studio Bossa is launching in May.
The announcement was made at London Games Festival, with the developer revealing the title would be coming to Early Access on May 17th.
The title uses Improbable's SpatialOS cloud tech and is the first commercial release to use this.
“When we went into Closed Beta in May last year, we couldn’t have envisioned the sheer amount of quality feedback we would receive from our inspiring community,” said studio CEO and co-founder Henrique Olifiers."
“At times, this completely shifted our production’s scope, and as a result, helped us truly hone Worlds Adrift’s vision, and has got it to this unique place. We now feel ready to take the game to a much wider audience, and work even more closely with the players to ensure we continue to learn and improve it. This is another reason why we label Worlds Adrift as the first Community-Crafted MMO.”
We sat down with Bossa to discuss the game last summer, asking lead designer Luke Williams if this is, in fact, the next Minecraft.
Keep your eyes peeled for our interview with Olifiers, which will be up soon.
