This is a Themepark game.

Making an argument for this game being a theme park game here.

- lot of quests with a guided narrative story, with a lot of really good rewards from quests (New +7 ring)

- no meaningful open world PvP rewards (PvP currency / the loot off the guy you killed / exp)  

- Dungeons with rewards, just no instant transport or instances.  The rewards are the fact that each dungeon has a unique rare drop off the mob inside.

- Raid Bosses / World Bosses, they provide the best loot, most have a 5 man version that is instanced for you to have another chance at the loot

- Battle grounds

- Ranking boards

- Sieges at set times twice a week 

- No need to defend your homestead except during set times from set groups of people

Just due to a game calling itself a sandbox doesn't make it one.  This game is a theme park game with less effort put in.

It is totally a themepark game. It guides you up until Lv20, then tells you to figure it out and that it'll wait for you once you reach lv50.

Okay. Who cares?

Are you happier now that you have pigeon holed the game into the category you are satisfied with?

Cool You think it's a themepark game, the other guy thinks it's a sandbox.

Why the ----- does it even matter?

I swear some of you people are so desperate to be right and prove someone wrong on the internet when it's 100% pointless.

Why can't we have topics that matter and have constructive information about the game?

It's a sandbox in that I can pursue any activity I want at any time, and I'm not forced into anything. 

It's probably 50/50 as far as sandbox/theme park go. The original vision was much more sandboxy and you can search the internet to find out the glorious details.

Well OP, i'd go out there to say if it's a theme-park it's doing the PvE pretty badly then.

It's primarily sandbox with *some* but very little of that "theme-park" element you seem to think it has.

Have you watched that trailer at all? What's the difference between that game and games like "Chivalry: Art of Warfare" which are just hack and slash games with the winner being whoever released their charge attack the quickest whilst in range?

i played other classes too, i have no desync. and yes i do know what a sandbox is, but everyone needs a helping hand otherwise they start crying.

here's 2 questions, what's your ping? and do you play out of the states regions? 

if your answers are either 60+ and yes, you will have desync.

Well, sandbox has nothing to do with PvE or PvP. It's all about how you want to approach a game, and what systems are there to support it. 

One of the key ones is economy, and Black Desert does fall short here. There's no "real" economy, even just looking at the trading game... I am creating money out of thin air based on false scarcity and demand (i.e. it's made up.)

I'll agree there on the economy, however I looked into that on day one and figured I could at least be lazy in this game and not spend 90% of my time playing the market like in other games.

I usually ended up very rich or flat broke from that but always had a headache from it.

it's because those are mostly server sided, we have some client sided stuff here. that can create the problem

darkfall being sandbox mmo?

So if Darkfall is a sandbox MMO, why isn't BDO?

"Join a clan and help build a kingdom" - So like in BDO where you join a guild and help capture nodes?

"Build towers and walls to defend your city" - So, like building towers, cannons and defences in node wars?

"Build a navy" - So like future content that is confirmed to be planned for BDO with a huge expansion in the sea?

"Declare wars" - So like GvGs?

"Invade your neighbours" - Node wars once again

"Fights on mounts" - So horse combat?

"That can be captured or killed" - Horses can be killed

"Fight at sea" - Future content planned for BDO

Honestly? Don't see a difference.
