Yes, Worlds Adrift will be the world’s first Community-Crafted MMO. And yes, it’ll be the very first game to have been built using Improbable’s SpatialOS. But why stop at two world firsts, when you can have three? We’re Bossa, remember…?
So to celebrate the upcoming launch of Worlds Adrift into Early Access on May 17th (etch it on your hearts), we thought we’d do exactly that; launch Worlds Adrift. Lemme’ explain…
We’ve created a lifesize skyship (no, really!), which we plan to propel 150 feet into the air, above the Chelsea College of Arts, London, in what is perhaps the most literal understanding of the term ‘launch event’ ever! The ship will be decked out (pun always intended) with twenty fully-supported game stations, so that guests can experience Worlds Adrift in a way that brings to life the sense of awe, expanse and wonder for which it’s been celebrated.

Staging several ascensions throughout the course of the day from 12-6pm, the entire event will be streamed live on the Bossa Twitch channel, with equipment provided for a number of special guests to do the same on their own channels, too! But as much as we want you guys to be able to experience the full event from home, in person would be even better, right?
I mean, what good is a Community-Crafted MMO launch event, without the community there to help you launch it? So we’ve got 8 PAIRS OF TICKETS UP FOR GRABS for a very special ascension the night before!! For your chance to win a pair, all you’ve got to do is follow @WorldsAdrift on Twitter and retweet this tweet by lunchtime, Friday 11th May (12pm bst)*. Offering a completely unique and one-off panoramic view of the London skyline, not to mention the opportunity to partake in an event that marks a first for the industry, only one question remains: have you courage and fortitude to heed the call?
