Above And Beyond Technologies' developer J.C. Smith has sent word that the NDA for Fragmented has officially lifted several days ahead of the game's launch on Steam, scheduled for April 26th. In addition, Smith wrote that all current owners of The Repopulation will have the game automatically added to their Steam library.
Fragmented is a sci-fi survival game set in the same world as The Repopulation, only it is set at the initial landing, before mankind had settled cities or spread throughout the world. It feature crafting, harvesting, building, vehicles, farming, pets, and action oriented combat, though it doesn't have the complexity of Repop. Combat is action based, and servers are smaller sized (not MMOs). We're giving it away for free to all Repop owners and backers when it releases as compensation for the issues, to give our players a product which they can play, as well as a preview into what to expect from UE4 Repop. The new version of The Repopulation is being built from the Fragmented game core; they are different branches of the same base.
