Pax Dei (official website)
is a recently (February 2023) announced sandbox MMO.
Here's the announcement:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bF5RJcqujz0

As someone who's been waiting for years and years for someone to iterate on the EVE Online concept, this looks very promising. Many of the leads are ex-CCP (developer of EVE) veterans.
The name refers to the "divine peace" that rules over the central part of the gameworld, where it looks like there will be little to no pvp. Outside of that center, things will become more dangerous and there will probably be no-opt-out pvp. According to the announcement, they'll be using at least some procedural generation (mixed with custom-designed areas) to generate the world.
The gameplay looks to be more actiony, as opposed to hotbar/tab target. Some clips showed reticule aiming for a bow.
If the devs' statements are accurate, all or nearly all of the structures in the world will be player-made - meaning that almost everything will be player-driven, from construction to economy and (potentially) politics.
If it sounds interesting, there's an alpha you can sign up for on their website
. No idea whatsoever when the alpha will be launched.
