The Repopulation was re-launched in February 2017 in the same state that it was taken down, in December 2015. The new development team is fixing and patching all elements in order to improve gameplay and reduce the amount of crashing. This has also resulted in a delay of patches, so game updates may be slow-going at first as we are doing a very large overhaul of back end systems.

The Repopulation is a science fiction sandbox MMORPG which is currently in Early Access and early alpha testing. You should only consider purchasing the Early Access for this title if you are okay with bugs, crashes, possible interruptions of service, and in some cases fluctuating features, as well as to support the development of the game and help up us build it.

The Repopulation is about player's choices in the way they play: being able to do Player vs Player or avoid it altogether, the ability to do Crafting and concentrate on it, or build your own home, having the freedom to advance your characters in a number of ways and not just through combat.Key Features Currently Available In Early Access
  • Sandbox-driven gameplay which never forces you down a specific path.
  • Skills-based advancement with over 75 skills including combat-oriented, diplomatic, rogue, entertainment, trade skill, pet, survival, and other advanced skills.
  • Advanced trade skill systems which allow for a high degree of customization in crafted goods.
  • Players can switch between RPG Mode or Action Mode combat at any time. Action Mode controls like a shooter, but is built on top of RPG mechanics.
  • Create homes and build cities complete with vendors, props and defensive units.
  • Dynamically-generated content which will change based on how players react to the world.
  • Unique three-faction PvP system, where the third faction is allowed to set its alliances on a nation by nation basis. PvP is entirely optional with much of the world being protected from it and players being able to progress entirely without ever getting involved in PvP.
  • Advanced generated mission system provides a never-ending stream of missions which are customized for your character. They are purely optional.
  • Social-oriented features which provide bonus rewards when grouping or working together with other players.
  • Vehicle system allows you to upgrade and custom tailor your vehicles, even adding abilities such as Shielding, Mines, Turbo Boost, or Combat abilities.
  • Three different pet systems: Genetic Engineering, Taming, and Robotics.
  • Engagement system which is similar to a mutating form of Public Quests.
  • Persistent Seamless World.
Key Upcoming Features
  • DirectX 11 Support.
  • Hardcore server ruleset.
  • Re-integration of the Siege system.
  • Underground levels for player-created cities.
  • Audio improvements as we move some systems from placeholder to final.
  • Ease of use features to make the game easier to grasp for new players.
  • Host Player Created Tournaments in your cities.
  • Raid Interface.
  • Microtransaction support for cosmetic and fun items.
  • City Perks system.
  • Graphical improvements, performance optimizations, additional FX, and general polish.
  • Balance, feature refinement, bug fixes and content.
  • Engine upgrades to take advantage of the most recent versions of Hero Engine.Server Availability
    Being an MMORPG the only way to play the game is online. We currently provide both US and EU servers and they are available as long as there is no scheduled maintenance or unforeseen issues that do arise during development and testing. We strive to keep the servers up and running as much as possible, but, as with any MMO, patching is needed and will require the servers to be down during the process. There might be other times when the servers are undergoing maintenance and will require downtime; we will try to effectively communicate this as much as possible.

    There are no current plans for player ran servers or single player options.3rd Party Account
    This game requires a 3rd party account to play. A key will be given to you by Steam to activate the account so you can see the list of available servers to play. Please be sure after you purchase the game to create your account and register the key.

    A Stand-Alone client will also be available for purchase via the game’s website in the near future.PackagesAll package options are subject to change
    Currently we have a single package option available:

    • Silver Package - Includes Name Reservation*, 1 Repop Token**, Early Access and Access to City Council and Nation Leadership options.

    Eventually we will be opening up 2 more package options:

    • Gold Package - Includes Silver membership, a total of 2 Repop Tokens**, 1-day Head Start and Ability to become a city mayor and run a player city.
    • Platinum Package - Includes Silver and Gold membership, a total of 3 Repop Tokens**, a total of 2 days of Head Start and Ability to create a new nation.

    *Name Reservation is the ability to reserve 1 in-game character name tied to your account, across all servers.

    **Repop Tokens will be exchangeable for in-game items as a thank you for supporting us. Instead of giving specific ones at each level we will offer you tokens and you will have a choice of different options, with some costing more than 1 token. These items will be cosmetic in nature only and will not give you any additional functionality or power over other players. Examples of what you can expect are: equip-able shell items such as armor, weapons, and clothing, a special edition vehicle, and trinkets and even special buildings for your housing and nation.

    You may upgrade your package options when other packages are available.

    At some point before release the Silver, Gold and Platinum memberships will be enabled in-game and offer the following: Additional Character Slots, Inventory Slots, Bank Slots, Shared Bank Slots, Mission Slots, and Auction Slots. The exact quantity of these slots are still being determined based on usage and feedback.

    In the future we will be enabling microtransactions in-game for cosmetic and fun items.

The Repopulation reviews and comments

Early Access Review It's a real shame that this Project, well, let's say "ice is". Icht had real Fun, cool setting finally again without Jedis and a really complex Crafting System. So complex that I have not really progressed with my limited English features and wanted to wait for the announced German Localization ... Well, maybe;) At Least the Early Acces Players have been given the Game Fragmented as "compensation," which is probably based on the "old" Engine and so far also entertains me quite well. But I fervently hope that the "Repopulation" will take place again, it would be a Disgrace if this Idea were not realized!

Early Access Review I am playing now since alpha round 3. The game is-at least currently-not exactly what it sounds like on their website and the crafting in SWG is/was still better, but its already great fun and way better than the most other sandbox Mŵout there. It's also more addressed to a mature community, so don't expect a fast gameplay with breathtaking action, but it's really worth a try! If you liked SWG, this game is for you, even if it's not the same. I've been playing since alpha Round 3 now. The Game is-at least for the moment-not what sounds like at the first Moment and the crafting in SWG ist/was still better, but the Game is already much better, like many other Sandbox Mê. Plus, it's also aimed more at an adult Community, so don't expect Quick Gamplay or officiating Action, but it's definitely worth a Try! Those who liked SWG will also like this Game, even if it's not the Same!

Early Access Review Makes you very Happy!! Like it. Something in the Way of ... Pip sorry for this Saying Pip ... Tabula Rasa. But, of course, completely different. Hahaha. Without Runes but with Skills. And very complicated Recipes sometimes * keuch * * sweat wiped off the Forehead *. But that's a good thing! Good Instructions. And I hope that remains the case. But It's Early Access, after all. And that's why wait and See what the future Owners or Gamthemselves owners make of it. I've experienced a lot before. But I like the Kind. This is not a Review of how something goes. But, my Feeling about this Game. Very positive. But You should keep your own Shortcuts. It's a getting used to every Time for me. But you can change the Buttons. Do dancing and Music. Full hot. Update: One City on. That the Game sometimes lubricates and you sometimes run in the Air is rare, but can happen. Bug Reports are always welcome and the Developers take care of one, but sometimes certain Things change in the short term. Early Access means adding its mustard early and sometimes like one of the Quest Has fallen. If you don't like it, let it be. Hehe. I was shamed with others for a long time. Sorry. But as I said, the Game is exciting. And sorry, I'm not very Shiite, more of a Brain and animation guy.
