    Black Desert online by Pearl Abyss. Keep an eye on this one. Sandbox and very nice looking world that has (from what I can gather from the video) a large feeling world with excellent variations in terrain, lightning and weather. Things I find very important.

    Been keeping an eye on this one - there's a few more trailers out there, and they just released a combat video not long ago I believe. There's like nothing on the website though, which is less than comforting

    Yup i've been keeping an eye out aswell.....but for now the combat doesn't look like i'll enjoy it.
    It doesn't matter how nice the world may look, if the gameplay just sucks it's a no-go for me :D

    But there is just not alot known yet....which is a pitty ;)

    Also the 400 vs 400 sieges......I don't have alot of hope in that ever becomming something ''grand'' that people really want to experience, but instead it'll be just another zerg-fest (and possibly extremely laggy).
    Can you imagine 800 different spell effects + players themselves + guards + much more etc. etc. running all around....:eek:

    Also that the Closed Beta has been rescheduled.....not really ''good'' news in my eye's, it makes you wonder what goes behind the curtains :cautious:

    Combat is more action based but it looks sloppy right now. Game definitely needs a lot of polish still. In the video's there is noticeable choppiness.. so we'll see if they continue to improve upon those issues.

    Looks pretty interesting. I've been feeling the need for a sandbox lately. Thanks for making me aware of this one!

    Cool Another Action MMORPG. I can't wait until the market is flooded enough for "Traditional" MMORPGs to be developed :) I'm expecting some amazing things when someone does it. Of course this will be years from now so I'll play what's here.:D

    Probably the only MMO still in development that i'm interested in except for WS.Unfortunately,the localizations are always delayed,and they are always badly done.

    I really like characters and how they can look into camera (real lify :)). I hope that EQN characters/npcs will look into the camera as well in the same manner.

    i couldn't watch those combat videos all the way through - the camera being so shaky and going in and out and moving all the time made me sick...

    That is just because they were editing the video and adding post processing effects. It won't play like that for you Kataryna in the final retail. Trust me on that.

    EDIT: Kat they do have some bizarre screen motion during combat. I saw that as I watched a lot of the Gamescon videos that came out in the past few days. I'm hoping that stuff gets removed or we have an option to suppress that because it is indeed annoying.

    Watch this video to see what it will really play like:
