From crafting guides/videos, themed servers and YouTube play sessions, there is enough out there to help one find what they are looking for.
Pro Enthralling, unpredictable gameplay
Exploring and fighting expands on what is a randomly generated world, never knowing what's going to happen next or what the player will find. There are no set goals and no end to reach: it is all a sandbox experience that the player formulates as they go along, making it all the more thrilling.
