BOUNDLESS LAUNCH DATE REVEALED
We recently announced that our exciting new sandbox MMO Boundless is launching on PC and PS4 on September 11 - which as you can see isn’t that far away! To celebrate, we also launched a new trailer showing how far the game has come since first appearing in Steam Early Access.
In preparation for launch, the Early Access universe has now been taken offline and a fresh new totally untouched universe has launched. If you were one of the people who backed the game during Early Access on Steam you can actually jump into the game now ahead of the full release and begin your journey!
We are incredibly excited for the game to launch next month and see gamers from across the world come together to create, craft, trade, hunt and explore in Boundless!
And that is all for this month!
