Explore, live off the land, and build things piece by piece. Ylands is a vibrant sandbox game with light survival elements. Alone or together with friends – your next adventure starts here.
Journey across a vast sandbox of procedurally-generated islands with biomes ranging from tropical rainforests, to sandy deserts, arctic tundras, and more. These landscapes are populated with many different animal species and hold a wealth of natural resources such as plants, soils, minerals, fuel, and a new mysterious and exotic material to the world: ylandium. The open world also features day-and-night cycles and changing weather conditions. For those brave enough, a new discovery is always on the horizon.
You find yourself stranded on a deserted island. What do you do? Mine the terrain, hunt animals, pick plants, and figure out how to craft thousands of unique items that might be essential for your expeditions. Climb magnificent mountains, descend into hidden caves, and sail across uncharted waters. This is your opportunity to seek out Ylands’ many secrets and boldly go where no one has gone before.
Break out your imagination and start building. From tree houses, beach mansions, castles, and bat caves, all the way up to ships, cars, and elaborate energy devices – if you can think of it, you can build it. There’s also a special Create mode that gives you unlimited access to a library of all the available game objects and special terraforming abilities. You’ll have everything you need to surprise even yourself.
By yourself or with friends, live out your fantasies by combining your knowledge of survival, engineering, architecture, and science. Explore, create, or play one of the many custom games and seamlessly switch between singleplayer and multiplayer at any time. Plus, Ylands’ innovative Sharegames functionality enables you to save your multiplayer creations in the cloud. That means you can always pick up where you left off without needing to worry about server resets.
Take part in a growing number of official and user-generated free custom games. The Ylands workshop hosts nearly every video game genre, such as platforming, roleplaying, racing, and even simulation. Of course, you can also unleash your own inner game developer. Ylands’ powerful 3D editor and massive library of content lets you build anything from simple structures to sophisticated game modes, which you can then easily share with the rest of the community.
