    Building is 100% free form (think: Minecraft on steroids) and this is how it looks, video by one of players in alpha tests:

    He made this by C.U.B.E. building tool and buildings can be destroyed - unless built offline or in starting zones BUT there will be siege windows (time for destruction) and it should take big number of players and siege engines.

    The game is Camelot Unchained, "Dark Age of Camelot 2", PvP / crafting / building MMO by Mark Jacobs. Or you can check it's IGN Wiki for quick intro and more pics + videos. Access now is not cheap, but beta starts in a month or two (?) and they should have open beta (free tests) in 2017.

    So this is like as if someone took something like UnrealEditor, and thought, "Why don't I make a game out of this?"?

    The engine is custom made and building (this is it's rather rough alpha footage) is more-less "attached" in sense that the main aim was to support huge number of players fighting in small area. So far , they had 3 000+ in some tests - that's four digits and it was battleground-sized area, not the whole server.

    I doubt, it was something else - there's lots of building games. Building is just one of game features, thou it can be played offline as independent game. Of course, there is lots of single player games that do it much better, naturally.
