An educated guess from everything I've read: Beta in first 5 months of next year, release before next year August.

No release this year. We still are in late Alpha right now.

Am I correct in understanding that this will be a "sandbox" type of game? If so, is it more like SWG or Darkfall? Or something else?

We typically say it is a mixture of SWG and Shadowbane. There is a diverse mixture of both PvE and PvP content for players to choose from along with non combat options as well.

From reading the website, I see:

 

  • Player vs. Player engagements are similar to Open World battlegrounds.
 
I gather that there will be ffa pvp areas and  guessing that there will be some safe zones for crafting and other non-combat activities, though probably gathering of rare items will take place in the pvp zones. 
 
Also, it seems like the faction-based system will keep this game from degenerating into an ffa moshpit of senseless murder.
 
I'm just being lazy and not reading all the content on the website, I know.

I don't Forum PVP. If you feel I've attacked you, it was probably by accident.

Looking forward to this one.  Kudos and best of luck.

keep in mind as far as pvp goes guilds ( player nations ) will be able to build cities and engage in siege warfare , there will be safe zones and contested areas for both factions , don't wanna say anything that might be wrong :)

There are safe havens, though most of them are in your starting factions area, but there will also be some pouches of safe havens in contested areas (in certain towns).

Harvestable resources will be available in both protected and contested areas. Though some of the richer resources will be in the contested areas as we view those as a good way to drive PvP conflict (these are the harvester extracted resources). We do want to encourage players to visit the contested areas, and have very little penalty (res sickness basically) on regular servers if you are killed in PvP, though this penalty will be harsher on the hardcore server.

Seems like the current mmo offerings are so stale right now.  It would have been quite fortuitous for The Repopulation to launch in this seeming desert of mmo launchings.  Timing is important.  But if it's in alpha still I guess its a ways off :[

everything looks great but I think they are waiting for more backers and money.

end of 2014 I hope,unfortunately very view games can require a subscription fee and get away with it.

only way forward for smaller games is crowd funding.

This is one of the only games i'm looking forward too, this and ESO. I need that sandbox feeling, that normal mmo's just don't have. I am currently rocovering from a major heart attack and waiting for another heart operation, so I have plenty of time on my hands to play games,

I have tried a few different MMO's latley, hell I even tried WOW the other day but it wasn't for me. I'm currently playing SWTOR, while it is fun and a great storyline, sadly it gets boring fast. If it was made into a sandbox it would be amazing, we can all dream right .

So I will keep drifting around different games untill The Repopulation comes out and I can finally get back into a real sandbox game.

It's my job to be objective, it's my right to have an opinion.

I've got a whole community of people I'm ready to bring into this game with me. I truly can't wait to see this game. Conceptually, it has it's head in all the right places; something no other MMO company does at this time.

Waiting for something fresh to arrive on the MMO scene...
