The Repopulation’s newest patch adds tutorials and mentors

Depopulated.

How does one play The Repopulation? Do you know? Are you sure you know? Because the developers found that the game’s previous tutorial didn’t do a particularly good job of introducing the concepts central to the game’s sandbox play, so the most recent patch is designed to address just that. A new tutorial released into the wild today covers far more ground and also takes place in a large outdoor area, helping new players to understand what they’re in for once the tutorial is over.

If you’re still lost, the sci-fi sandbox is also adding mentor NPCs who will answer player questions about gameplay concepts, so you’ll have at least some idea of what you’re supposed to do in the larger sense. There are also interface improvements and the like, the sort of thing you’d expect from a large patch as the game creeps ever closer to release. Check out the full patch notes for a detailed breakdown of what’s been shifted around; maintenance for the patch began at 10 a.m. EDT this morning.

I really couldn’t get past the combat, movement, and graphics.  I loved SWG.  It was my favorite MMO.  When I play sandboxes, this is what I compare it to.  The Repopulation plays worse and looks way worse in comparison… to a game that launched over a decade ago.

teppic Definitely hold off, I bought it and…it’s just not worth sinking time into currently. It’s VERY unfinished and barely enjoyable in it’s current state. I’d wait until ATLEAST launch.

Liandreth CharcoalCrow solipsis This game will go nowhere. It’s way too rough and taking way too long. The engine is bad. The animations are terrible, combat terrible, exploration terrible, everything is just setup really poorly. Core parts of this game just wont work nowadays, but we’ll see….

BabaGraPL Agreed, the tutorials before were uninspired, to put it nicely.  I’ll check it out too!  :)
