Brand-New MMORPG ‘Pax Dei’ From Ex-CCP Games Devs

After a seemingly long period of not writing here at, it’s a wonderful feeling to be back and this time with some incredible news. Does anyone remember that iconic MMORPG that people still play to this day, EVE Online? Well, some of the developers that worked on that game over at CCP Games decided to band together to create their own studio called Mainframe Industries. Even more impressive was the fact that they decided to jump back into the MMORPG genre, and create a brand-new social sandbox MMO by the name of Pax Dei.

Showcasing some incredible graphics and environments, the team over at Mainframe shared some intricate details about the upcoming Unreal Engine 5 MMORPG.

  • Focusing on the Social Aspect

    Maximizing the human interaction feature in an online game. This is, to the developers, the holy grail of the MMORPG genre.

  • The Divine Peace

    The game's world starts in the Heartlands, and is peaceful and not full of danger.

  • Crafting Flexibility

    Crafting is the utmost important feature when it comes to Pax Dei. Build your own civilization in a map. From small houses, villages, towns, to even cities. Farming, Blacksmithing, Alchemy, and more professions are available.

  • Player-Driven Economy

    Casual players, or solo players, can feed the market of a specific area, with items that they can procure.

  • Open-World PvP

    Using myths and fables from the real world, it's been implemented into the game. Out in the valleys, it is filled with creatures and possible player-killing players.

  • Platforms

    PC Platform launching on Steam first. Prototypes for other platforms such as Consoles or Mobile, are in development, but PC is the main focus.

The team behind this upcoming MMO shared some behind-the-scenes footage of the developers at work, and some incredibly in-game footage. The game is currently in Alpha, but even then, the game looks absolutely wonderful. Still, one can’t help but wonder how exactly this will work on “all devices”, as Reynir Hardarson, the game’s director (and founder of the studio), given some of the limitations that we are held to in this day and age. Heck, even Forspoken required an RTX 4080 for a “good” experience with the game, and that’s coming from a PS5 title.

Even the latest Hogwarts Legacy has had its performance issues due to how heavy the game plays on PC, unless a player is lucky enough to have a high-end card such as the RTX 40 series. 

Still, if interested, sign-ups are available for Pax Dei right now, and the process is a bit more in-depth than the usual run-of-the-mill sign-up for a newsletter scenario. You’ll be required to link your Steam profile, share what devices you use (such as PC, Laptop or Console), and the graphics cards needed.

Plus, if anyone wants to be friends with me and have a chance to play together when the Alpha arrives, here’s my Friends Code:
