New Version, Divergence: Year One, Emerges from the Original

New Version, Divergence: Year One, Emerges from the Original -

Ethan Casner has sent word that Divergence Online in its current form is not turning a profit as hoped. Citing DO as being too "niche", Casner has now announced that the best features of Divergence are becoming the foundation of a new, more "Road Warrior" type, game called Divergence: Year One.

According to Casner, D:YO will have the same structure as the original but also bring in features including horse taming / breeding and vehicle engineering all wrapped into a survival MMO type setting. 

You play as a survivor to the initial catastrophe now cutoff from the rest of America behind "The Western Wall" erected to prevent the spread of the virus. No word comes in, no one gets out. A total communications blackout prevents cell-phones, internet or even television and radio from reaching survivors beyond the wall. Only a handful of cities avoided total collapse after the great earthquakes and the subsequent rise in sealevel consumed most of what was once the North-American states of California, Oregon and Washington. 

Steam Greenlight has already begun, so you can head to the Divergence: Year One page to vote your conscience!
