Progress through the ages in an authentic world
Start out empty-handed and learn to survive by foraging, hunting, crafting, and fighting. Enter the stone age by knapping primitive stone tools and sculpting clay for essential pottery. Live through the four seasons and advance further by smelting copper for more powerful tools, creating bronze alloys, learning to work iron, and ultimately mechanizing common tasks.
Immensely large, immensely diverse procedural worlds
Enter a vast open world populated by a range of cute, strange, dangerous, and outright horrifying creatures. Vintage Story utilizes a great deal of procedural technology to create immensely diverse landscapes, climate conditions, and geological features to always keep exploration fresh and exciting.
A wicked universe backed by original story elements
Take on the role of a lost being in the body of a tall blue creature and discover the remnants of civilization. There is no linear storytelling; it is up to you to piece together who you are and what has happened from the little evidence that remains. During your journey you will encounter wayward creatures, find old stories, battle temporal instability, and endure temporal storms.
Immersive crafting mechanics
Vintage Story aims to turn all crafting processes into an immersive, in-world experience. You create stone tools by breaking off individual stone pieces, form pottery by placing small bits of clay, and craft sturdy tools by casting molten metal or by working hot ingots voxel-by-voxel on an anvil.
Every world you create is populated by a great degree of geological diversity. You will encounter:
- Dozens of unique land forms
- Varying rock strata that are host to specific minerals
- Areas rich, poor, or completely devoid of certain minerals
- Huge veins of quartz that harbor trace amounts of silver, gold and vugs - cracks in which large crystals can form
- Rare, crystallized versions of minerals
- Rare but huge domes of salt, which can be used as an effective food preservative
