Trove is a Sandbox, MMO and RPG game created by Trion Worlds. It was released for PC in 2015, and later for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017.
Why It Rocks
It is free to play, and literally everyone can get everything without paying! You can use the in-game currency (Flux) to buy stuff from other players.
Mentioning the fact said above, the game also gives you daily prizes, especially during events (Snowfest for example).
The game has two currencies: cubits and credits. Both of them can be earned without paying (credits a bit harder to obtain than cubits). Also, credits are used only for cosmetic purposes and to advance faster in the game, removing the challenge and fun. So, paying removes the challenge, and unlike other games which are pay to win, it isn't a good idea to buy credits.
Tons of biomes, ranging from grasslands, to neon city and even fiery ones. To make things greater, you can also encounter many kinds of biomes in a single worlds and those worlds are infinite!
There is also a Shadow Tower, where teamwork is necessary in order to win. Those challenges take a lot of time to complete, yet they are highly rewarding. You can also solo bosses, it is harder but more fun !
You can make a cornerstone and, if you want more space, you can make a Vault Club. You can also make a Club World, in which you can make a world of your own! (You need a Vault Club Card and respectively, a Club Card)
Stunning and beautiful landscapes.
Many kinds of dungeons.
Very few glitches, which aren't really game-breaking.
Unlike Minecraft, the game can run even on low-end PC at roughly 30 FPS (on lowest settings, with some frame drops occasionally).
The community is decent and most of the time friendly. You can even trade with players.
It encourages teamwork. For example, if you enter a dungeon and anyone is trying to beat the boss, you can still earn the rewards, even if you just joined. Or if someone is mining, and you are next to him/her, you will get what he/she mines too!
Many classes to choose from. Some of them include a Tomb Raiser and a Gunslinger.
There are also references to Valve's games. The standalone CPU core, for example, resembles a Portal core.
Player vs Player and Team Deathmatch also exist in this game.
The game developers seem to care about the community and about the game itself. It is a rare thing nowadays, since a lot of developers care about money now.
You can't climb ladders.
The servers can get laggy sometimes, especially if there are a lot of players in them.
