The Repopulation download for PC is a new incarnation of MMORPG developed by Above and Beyond Technologies. The developers decided to mix typical MMORPG gameplay with some interesting server-wide mechanics, including the ability to manage and defend cities.
In The Repopulation download, the players enter the world as a part of the second generation of colonists inhabiting Rhyldan, a planet contested by two factions OWON (One World, One Nation) or FPR (Free Peoples Republic). Both factions are in constant discord as a result of common history spanning numerous years, from the initial years of the colony up to the political tensions that ended with the creation of both groups.
Each player can join one of the aforementioned factions, or become a part of one of minor, neutral groups. Choosing a faction is only the beginning every affiliated member can create fully functional cities. Each settlement contains numerous objects (workshops, houses, etc.) and has a defense system (walls, fortifications, gun emplacements).
The world of Repopulation is a sandbox, shaped and expanded by players. A large emphasis was placed on quest variety and unlimited exploration quests, as well as random events, are generated based on players past behavior and habits. Each decision counts all players are a part of a co-dependency system that shape each members reputation and the current political, ecological, or economic situation of each area. Furthermore, the current situation is also influenced by events such as natural disasters or a surge of a given predatory species.
PvP and PvE systems are available in two variants: RPG Mode, and Action Mode. The former is a system similar to the one found in other MMORPGs combat is limited to targeting and using different abilities available on the action bar. Action Mode (the latter one) introduces a combat mode more similar to the ones found in most action games, introducing genre-specific elements such as cover system, free aiming, and prone positon. Moreover, the developers introduced a siege system. Players can form alliances to besiege other cities, a complex, multi-day effort that results in multiple benefits and change in the allotment of powers found on Rhyldan.
Even if the game seems to be warfare-oriented as a result of the extensive combat system, combat and player on player clashes arent the only activity found in the game we are introduced to a crafting system, enabling us to create items, weapons, devices, and vehicles (including battle or siege vehicles), as well as upgrade those already owned. In addition, every player gathers experience which then can be spent on various abilities. The game introduces multiple development trees (including areas such as Combat, Social, Rouge, Crafting, Medical, and General) consisting of over 100 abilities divided between 15 advancement levels.
The Repopulation download for PC is a 3D MMORPG characterized by detailed models and numerous locales including interiors and different biomes of the planet. The game is governed by a characteristic RPG interface, enabling the players to choose their abilities and navigate around the area. To counter the problem of barren environments, the developers introduced high-quality lighting and post-processing effects.
