There have been so many magical things happen in Minecraft since it was first launched, but this might be the project to really take the biscuit. Meet the Minecraft MMO, known as Wynncraft.
This isn’t just your run of the mill project, the Wynncraft team have been working on it full-time for over four years and the result is a full and seriously impressive MMORPG – or massive multiplayer online role-playing game, for those who despise acronyms.
Wynncraft has everything you could ever want from an MMO, from quests and guilds to character levelling, mobs and bosses. And more importantly, it’s totally free-to-play as long as you’ve got an internet connection, a copy of Minecraft and a Minecraft account.
“Start your journey from humble beginnings in the Wynn province and explore one of the biggest and most detailed custom maps in Minecraft“ reads the official Wynncraft website. “Play alongside your friends to gain experience and fall into the immersive world of Wynncraft to become the strongest warrior across the four provinces.”
Wynncraft’s gorgeous map sprawls across around 4000 x 5500 blocks in size, just take a look at everything on offer in this zoomable map.
The team are making enough money to pay for the servers by selling items for Wynncraft, which is already proving incredibly popular with fans. If you want to get involved, here’s the official server details (which are also available via the Wynncraft website):
