Today developer Mainframe Industries released a brand new trailer for its upcoming MMO, Pax Dei. The trailer doesn’t go into much detail, but says that all of the footage was captured in the engine. If true, this is a beautiful title that will likely only look better upon release.

Mainframe Industries calls Pax Dei a social sandbox MMO. It doesn’t seem to have a story that you follow closely. The story you experience will emerge based on the actions of the players around you. This is an MMO where you can choose your own path. You could become a merchant, a knight escorting people through a dangerous forest, a thief lying in wait, or something else entirely. It seems like you shape the story through your actions, the job you choose, and the ecosystem players build together.
According to the game’s Steam page, players build everything in this world. They find a piece of land and work together to build whatever they need. This isn’t like Destiny 2, World of Warcraft, or Final Fantasy XIV Online. It’s a world where quests and jobs come naturally when you as a community decide you need a mill, farm, or weapons.
That’s not to say the game is completely safe. Magic is real in this world, and there are many animals who want to bite your head off in fear. Because of this, players must work together to achieve their overall goals together. It’s very hard to say if the game has compelling gameplay at this point, but the ideas are certainly intriguing.
