The Features of Wurm Online

Wurm Online is a massive multiplayer online game with over 16 years’ development that is still continually being updated with new content. There are more features than could possibly be listed on this page.

The Lands of Wurm

Where most games use sandbox elements to allow some player choice while still using guided elements such as quest chains, dungeons and instanced zones, Wurm Online embraces the true vision of sandbox gaming; a land that can be completely shaped by the players free of instancing and artificial boundaries.

Building and Terraforming

At the core of the sandbox is the ability to terraform and shape the land around you. Players can use tools to flatten land, raise vast spires and even scar mountains, leaving their mark on the game for everyone to see. Wurm also includes non instanced player housing without prefabricated buildings. Each building is shaped by the player and built according to personal style and skill. But that’s just the beginning of what’s possible…

Wurm contains an extensive crafting system with hundreds of different weapons, tools and items to craft. Wooden items can be crafted from any type of wood available, each having their own hue as well metal items having specific bonuses depending on the metal used to create them. Players can trade goods and services for currency earned in-game or purchased via our shop.

Skills and Characteristics

Unlike traditional MMO’s, Wurm has no classes, levels or skill caps. Instead Wurm allows you to raise over 130 skills ranging from resource collection such as mining, smithing, and woodcutting to crafting and production, such as carpentry and various smithing professions. All skills are raised by performing actions involving that skill. Many skills will require items or resources that need other skills as well, which can be raised alongside or be traded with other players.

Player vs Player

On our PvP-servers, Wurm Online employs a Full Loot-system, which means that all your items will be dropped upon death and can be looted by an opposing faction.

The PvP in Wurm Online stands true to the sandbox-nature of the game. You can do everything from conquering or forming alliances with other kingdoms, to ambushing unsuspecting players and steal their stuff, etc. Diplomacy, communication and caution is key in Wurm PvP.
