Realmcraft is a sandbox game. A lot of people get confused trying to understand how is that different from open-world games. I would say, the most crucial difference is that sandbox games allow you to change the world around you — build and destroy anything and anywhere. They often have, but it’s not necessary.

REALMCRAFT GAME MODES: SINGLEPLAYER
You probably can tell the difference between survival and creative modes just by the names: in creative mode, your character doesn’t have any limitations and even can fly, all the resources are available, no aggressive mobs trying to kick your ass — just create whatever you can imagine! If you’re patient enough 🙂
In survival mode, you need to, like, survive. There are 4 levels of difficulty — on the easiest you can die if you try hard enough, and your resources are limited by what you can mine, and on the hardest, you can stay alive for maybe 5 minutes if you’re lucky.
The third tab is “Worlds”. Commonly, when you create a world, it is generated randomly, and it only has natural landscapes, and some mines and dungeons. In that world, you can build houses, farms, dungeons, ships — lots of stuff — and change it in any way you can think of. Any moment you can share your world — and that’s exactly what can be found on the tab.
REALMCRAFT MULTIPLAYER GAME MODE
Besides usual modes, there are also some mini-games in RealmCraft. They regularly add new ones with the updates to keep it toned 😉 Mini-games are short online multiplayer sessions on premade maps, in which you join a random team and fight against another team. At the moment they have 3 mini-games: snowball fight, egg wars, and bed wars.
