The limited release world.
The game world at the start of the game launch is divided into Old World, the NPC city housing the tower and the Metagate, and four small biome previews representing starting zones. The sections of the world zones will have content challenge ratings as described in our to-be-released whitepaper. As players venture out into the world the goal is to sacrifice the appropriate properties to the gate to unlock the full map. Unlocking a biome is the player saving his original world from oblivion. Once all biomes are unlocked through gate sacrifice the world can be further expanded through the Metagate through future large-scale sacrifices.
