Wurm Online

Wurm Online

Wurm Online is a totally unique, highly accessible online world that will drag you in, shake you up and down, bite you, annoy you, drive you completely mad and leave you wondering why you didn't find it a million years ago!

Both PvP and PvE server clusters are available. On the Freedom PvE cluster, you can enjoy a peaceful life being eaten by bears in the woods. One of those servers offers opportunities to get a taste for fighting with other players, though. The Epic PvP cluster offers a lot of opportunities to fight and compete with other players. It also has bears, so watch out! You can transfer your account between the clusters at any time, skills and items do not transfer but are kept intact.

Intended for mature gamers

I love Wurm online, but I also realize that it is not for everyone. The game offers more possibility than any other sandbox MMO I have seen, although it is very slow and has a steep learning curve.

Think of Wurm online as "Wilderness Survival" or a "Homestead Simulator"

The game also has a very active Wiki, forum and IRC.
