Is really ARMA III an "open multiplayer world (sandbox)"?
Well I watched features of this game showing this kind of statements, but when I got it and tested it I saw multiplayer game works through servers until 60 people more or less. My question is if final version will be really all just one and universal server for this game where really there is an open multiplayer world or it will be like nowadays (alpha version)? Thanks for reading.

a true "sandbox", the player has tools to modify the world themselves and create how they play.[5] Generally open world games still enforce some restrictions in the game environment, either due to absolute technical limitations or in-game limitations (such as locked areas) imposed by a game's linearity.

so yes arma3 is a sandbox game

yes it is but it is not like wow and wont be anything like wow

It is an open world. Every server is its own map. But no, it will not be one giant server where everyone is together like WoW. However, on each individual server everyone is free to interact with each other.

most people confuse "sandbox" with "open world".

open world means simply you do not have level restrictions and have a big environment to move in. not more, not less.

a sandbox game means that you can alter a vast amount of the world (inside it's engine limitations) to your liking, such as arma does with the editor and the capability of using playermade scripts and it's developer supported modability.

arma 2 has enough free downloadable content to be like 4 or 5 games, and i am sure arma 3 will not fail this task.

most sandbox games have the open world feature, because it wouldn't make too much sense without it, but open world doesn't mean sandbox. GTA is not a sandbox game.

and to answer OP's question: no, the servers will not be WOW like since they are mostly hosted by private people or Clans.
