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.Go explore
You find yourself stranded on a deserted island. What do you do? Mine
the terrain, hunt
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.Build things

. 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.Play together

That means you can always pick up where you left off without needing to worry about server resets.Custom games
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
Ylands in-game store
We want to be transparent on how we plan to fund our development in the coming years. For the most part, we expect to earn revenue through the sales of the game itself. On top of that, we’re also providing Ylands fans with the opportunity to purchase a few special cosmetic items via the in-game store. These items consist of a selection of skins, emotes, avatars, pets, decorations, and blueprints. Altogether these items make up a fraction of the content available in Ylands, and none of them are essential to playing the game. We consider these items as little bonus rewards for some of our most dedicated supporters, and a way to make Ylands' free future updates even bigger and better.
Made by Bohemia Interactive
Ylands is made in the Unity 3D engine by Bohemia Interactive. You might also know us from the Arma series and DayZ. The Ylands team have been working on the game for a few years now – planting trees, coloring rainbows, teaching parrots to swear, and everything else that's needed to develop a great sandbox. Anyway, it’s time to play; so let us wish you a wonderful time on your Ylands, and we hope to hear about all your adventures in-game!
