The Repopulation is a Science Fiction Sandbox MMORPG which is currently in Late Alpha Testing. You should only consider purchasing the Early Access for this title if you are okay with bugs, possible interruptions of service, and in some cases fluctuating features.
In many ways The Repopulation is a throwback to the social aspects and sandbox driven gameplay that made titles like Star Wars Galaxies and Ultima Online successful. But it also integrates more recent innovations and introduces an array of its own unique wrinkles.
The driving force behind this game is choice to play the game in the way that you want to play it. The choice to play the game like a traditional RPG or in a more action oriented style. To advance your character through combat or peaceful means. The freedom to craft and harvest without being forced into combat. To act as a hero or a villain. A thief, diplomat, home builder, tamer, crafter, or an entertainer. To participate in Player vs. Player combat or to avoid it altogether.
Key Features Currently Available In Early Access
- Sandbox driven gameplay which never forces you down a specific path.

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 unforseen issues that do arise during development and testing. We strive to keep the servers up and running as much as possible, but patching as with any MMOs is needed and will require the servers to be down during the process. There might be other times the servers are undergoing maintenance and will require downtime and we will try to effectively communicate this as much as possible.
There are no current plans for player ran servers or single player options.
