There's been a lot of player buzz surrounding Worlds Adrift, the community-driven co-op experience from developer Bossa Studios. Aiming to shake up the usual MMO formula by allowing the players to define their own gameplay experiences, the game is soon to launch into Steam Early Access. In celebration of everyone's efforts, Bossa Studios has a unique launch idea in mind — to literally launch players 150 feet in the air on a sky ship inspired by in-game creations.
On May 17, the studio will invite sets of 20 players to come aboard their ship, which has been "decked out" with 20 game stations, and check out Worlds Adrift while suspended above the grounds of the Chelsea College of Arts in London. Though the goal is to have players get a feel for the game, according to a press release, the experience will also be a chance for players to soak in the "completely unique and one-off panoramic view of the London skyline."
Six different ascensions will be staged between 12 noon and 7 pm on May 17, with each session lasting for an hour and offering "approximately forty minutes of gameplay experience." For all of the players who miss out on the chance to get high with the Bossa Studios crew, the entire event will be livestreamed over on Bossa's social media channels, plus on-site players will be able to stream to their own channels with provided equipment.
Bossa will also be offering a chance for players to enter a raffle where the big prize will be a life-size replica of the Worlds Adrift Grapple Hook. Beyond all this, players can check out more about the game by watching the Early Access release trailer featured above or by heading over to the official Worlds Adrift website. Also be sure to check out Shacknews' interview with Bossa Studios' co-founder and game designer. Worlds Adrift will land in Steam Early Access on May 17.

Has anyone bought into this and played it? It looks interesting but I'm not into buying in pre-early-access any more...
I've been watching their press and played with the island designer thing though.
It seems like one of those MP games that will live or die depending on population and between pubg and fortnite its even worse than usual for that kind of thing :(
