Well here we are, one year after launch. How quickly did that go by?
It definitely doesn’t seem like 365 days ago that we hit the button on a little forum post entitled “Boundless Has Officially Launched!”. That was the first time we opened the doors to the wider world, and the first time we saw Boundless’ cross-play in full force as PS4 players joined the fun. Like any game launch, it was a nervous and exciting day for all of us here in Mission Control, and one year on these forums are busier than ever.
Looking back over these forums, it’s quite something to see how far the game has grown - and we couldn’t have done it without the constant feedback and encouragement of The Best Community in Games™. Since launch, which was “technically” Release 198 of Boundless, we’ve been bringing out updates regularly, and have just released a Testing version of Release 230.
More than 30 releases later, It’s easy to forget the time before we had Guilds, or Exoworlds, or Farming. Remember how cool the first sighting of LED Blocks was? Or how Poles and Beams expanded building? That initial Launch Universe of 8 planets is more than 50 strong now, and with Exoplanets popping up regularly, we hope you won’t run out of places to explore any time soon.
We’ve shared snowball battles over the holiday season, decorated our beacons with Hallowe’en goodies, and exchanged gifts during our seasonal events. We loved watching you all chase the Gleambows back in the Spring too - how many citizens still have their Gleam rewards stashed away?
Your hard work and dedication shows in-game too. The Gyosha Mall didn’t build itself. The Portal Networks certainly didn’t spring up overnight, and some of the large-scale builds we can see across the Known Worlds now are incredible. From the dramatic silhouette of Chateau Excelsior, to the skyline of Duskmoor or the psychedelic urban sprawl of Gellis Prime, there are some phenomenal sights to see across the game today. Our vision for what Boundless could be is coming to life block by block, and every single one of you has played a huge part in that.
Of course, there’s a lot of road ahead of us, and we’re hard at work on more features that we think will really change the game for the better. As soon as we have news to share, you’ll be the first to know as always.
So please accept our sincere and heartfelt thanks for your amazing support, from all of us here at Wonderstruck. I can speak for the whole team when I say we couldn’t have done it without you.
Cheers all - here’s to another great year of Boundless!
P.S: To celebrate, we thought we’d share this special anniversary image for your desktops! Enjoy!
