The Repopulation is an interesting new Sandbox MMO that sees the remnants of the human race fighting for survival on the planet of Rhyldan against some rather nasty indigenous lifeforms and each other.
The game has a big focus on freedom, with no preset paths through the game and a variety of combat oriented and non-combat activities to pursue. Players can build their own cities, form nations, elect mayors, take part in multi-stranded generated missions with branching outcomes, learn and upgrade skills, fit their character with augmentations, raise pets (Tamed, Genetically Engineered and Robotic), and operate a variety of vehicles. PvP engagements can be combat and non-combat oriented, with the player base divided into 3 factions, and the 3rd faction able to splinter off into smaller factions.
The Repopulation is certainly an ambitious MMO, that looks like it might actually deliver on it’s promise of offering an amount of player freedom rarely seen in gaming. With the final round of Alpha testing taking part this month, Beta sign-ups for the next phase have begun.
UPDATE: Alpha No Longer Available
