If you’ve ever played Minecraft on the legendary Hypixel servers then you’ve got a general idea of what Hytale is all about. For the uninitiated, Hypixel is a network for Minecraft servers that started out as a series of YouTube videos about Minecraft adventures. Hytale is an upcoming sandbox adventure game with the same blocky voxel graphic style as Mojang’s runaway hit. Taking all the fun aspects of the Hypixel servers and fusing them with a procedurally generated world and RPG elements, Hytale promises a whole world of creativity and adventure.
Let’s dig into everything we know so far about Hytale.
While on the surface it looks just like the game that inspired it, Hytale aims to be its own beast. In fact, it sounds like it aims to take the Minecraft concept to a whole new level. Beyond the usual mining and crafting, Hytale will have its own baked-in modding and scripting tools that will allow you to make the game your own. Character customization also appears to be way beyond what we’ve gotten from Minecraft if you exclude skins. It’s an ambitious game to say the least.
To Adventure and Beyond
The game is a fusion of open-world action RPGs and Minecraft. On top of being able to dig, build and craft until your heart’s content, you’ll also be able to don powerful armor and wield magic and weapons to fight a wide variety of fantasy monsters of all shapes and sizes. There are even big bosses to challenge. Beyond the adventure portions, Hytale will also include mini-games that the Hypixel servers were known for as well as community servers for all fans to hang out in.
Never The Same Adventure
Just like Minecraft, Hytale will have a host of different biomes and landscapes that will all be procedurally generated. This means that no one playthrough will ever be the same. From the trailers, we’ve seen several familiar landscapes as well as some unique ones that are clearly inspired by fantasy lands and harsh worlds. What makes experiences like Hytale truly unique is being able to start anew without ever getting bored and the game definitely seems to be hitting those notes.
The Bottom Line
Hytale is still a few months away from release. From what we’ve seen so far, it’s an incredibly ambitious game that aims to take creativity to a whole new level.
Here’s hoping that the great people at Hypixel Studios can pull it off.
