    There's no thread for this game but it looks pretty okay so I'll make one.

    http://www.therepopulation.com/index.php/game-features/game-overview

    Non-grimdark scifi post-apocalyptic-ish sandbox MMO. Hybrid PvP/PvE approach wherein players choose between a couple of opposing NPC nations (think Horde and Alliance) or form their own player-run nation with its own political standings. City building. Siege system similar to Shadowbane's. No levels. Servers with varied rulesets as to what, if anything, you lose on death and when you can attack other players.

    Overview doesn't look that impressive but the devs are vocal and most of their blog shit seems to indicate they know how to make a proper PvP MMO, at the very least. For instance, the siege system is explained in detail here: http://www.therepopulation.com/index.php/news/109-siege-overview

    Will make an Embers of Caerus thread too once that stops being vaporware.

    I thought for sure this was going to be a Bioware game that finally got to the heart of what engages their current fanbase.

    I wonder if they are going to allow it to be a sandbox similar to Eve as I would be more then willing to pay monthly for another true/actual sand box game.

    From what little I browsed through it talked about leveling skills, player owned cities to which the owner of the city has to sell you plots of land in order to build your own domicile, etc. It sounds awesome, but from what I have seen from these indie developers I think I am going to put this one in my "they took off more than they could chew" category.

    So it is going to be a turd like Darkfall and also that other pvp fantasy mmo can't come to mind right now. There was a video of people playing it and showing all the bugs ridden in that game like fleas.

    Mortal Online? Yeah that was a shitfest. Worst money I ever spent. Darkfall's major flaw was that it had zero skill caps, so everyone becomes the same thing and it's basically just an average shooter game after that. The Repopulation is atleast a sci-fi take on it. There was another SCIFI sandbox MMO that I cant remember the name of either but I played a free trial of it and it was total garbage and absolutely dead. Entropia Universe is just to much of a grind and requires too much real cash to just have a moderate amount of fun even though the game itself is quite awesome and has sweet art direction.

    The company I work for was talking with the devs of this game behind the scenes about publishing. Ultimately they wanted too much money and they were too unprofessional and disorganized - they had very few plans on how to monetize it properly, no solid roadmap for the future, etc. Despite lofty goals the game is still pretty janky and clunky right now too. Still, I appreciate the effort, just have to wonder if it's going to be in perpetual alpha testing at this rate.

    Yea mortal Online as that video of those guys playing the game made me want to bleach my eyes. Looked through many sand box mmo's and they are all half ass'ed.

    Well that is disappointing to hear as I would like to replace Eve as it is a bore at this point thanks to CCP's retardo decisions to stagnate the game.

    That is some interesting insider information you made public there. I wonder how this company you work for would handle such an indiscretion.

    "In response to the amazing support from fans, Idea Fabrik PLC is excited to announce the acquisition of "The Repopulation" game from Above and Beyond Technologies, Inc. and the relaunch of the title in the first quarter of 2017." Great news for the fans I guess. The amount of work required to switch from an engine (especially one like Hero Engine) to another one is huge and I doubt the studio behind Repopulation had the funding, manpower or interest in doing such thing. Surely they've mentioned that the process was well under way, but I doubt they had put that much time into it yet. They already have to operate their early access title and that means diverting resources that would have been required to recreate all the stuff on Unreal.
