The Xsyon team has announced a terrific new feature in the game where inactive tribes are reborn as the undead utilizing a "sophisticated new AI" that sends them into the game to invade the realms of the living.
The earth is ready to give up its dead to play right alongside survivors in the sandbox, survivalist MMORPG Xsyon: Prelude. Breaking new ground in the sandbox genre, Xsyon has unleashed an undead horde known as the ‘Revenants’ that rise up from tribal totems abandoned by inactive players. Formerly active tribes give way to sophisticated AI monsters that can loot your corpse and grow in power to chase down your friends as part of the current Abandonment phase. Revenants also introduce their very own unique ‘scrap’ armor sets that can be looted off their rotting corpses.
