Active Worlds is a vast global online virtual community that transcends what virtual worlds have done before. There are six hundred 3D different worlds that run in real time. Even with the super detailed graphics of these worlds, you don’t need high bandwidth or a particularly powerful computer to play.

You can create almost anything you want in Active Worlds, from games, environments, artwork, and customize a 3D avatar. This game allows you to fully manifest the various creations of your imagination. During the gameplay you can use your avatar to interact with the three dimensional world around you.


The avatar is controlled with your mouse or keyboard. The game supports HMDs and has a free look system for viewing different unconventional angles. It features a level of detail and intricacy that is not present in other MMORPGs, and you definitely will get an all-new experience playing this game.

The game has many smaller worlds, or “world-lets” to explore. Each small world has a different theme. Some are themed after hack and slash games, while others have the theme of typical RPGs.


They vary in size, ranging from tennis court size to the size of an entire country. The building is one of the most alluring aspects to the game. With your account, you can claim portions of land that are unclaimed. Then, you can use the land to creature vast, imaginative structures.

The building tool is easy to use and allows you to build basically anything that you can think of. With this game, you can produce the fruits of your imagination and there is no limit. To give examples of the things in features in this game, you can ride a realistic monorail system that runs for miles, ride carnival rides that remind you of your youth, board spaceships, and even explore British areas by means of a perfect replica BR train.With a paid account, you can be assured that your creations will be permanently preserved and never deleted from the game’s servers.
