The Repopulation is an upcoming sci fi MMORPG originally from indie developer Above and Beyond Technologies, headed by Josh Halls. After some development issues, the game was sold to HERO Engine creators Idea Fabrik to finish development. The game will put players in Plymouth City, a new human settlement on the planet Rhyldan, where differences over DNA control and cloning have split the population into two factions now at war. The game aims to bring a host of fresh new game features to MMORPG players over and above what is now available, such as full sandbox play, city building, random engagements, player and vehicle combat, and many more. The Repopulation is accepting alpha test applications, so head to the main website and sign up today!
According to a post on the newly revamped The Repopulation site, the game servers will be opening again for backers beginning on March 12th. To prepare, downloads of the client are currently available. According to the post, nothing has changed as far as log in and access for those who are backers of the game.
