Mars survival sandbox ROKH pushes early access to May

Mars-themed survival sandbox ROKH is inching closer toward release, a new post on Steam announced today, as early access is now planned for May 16th.

“Playing on persistent servers, you will experience a truly sandbox experience. No mission or quest here, define your own goals according to your own needs! And to succeed, find your own way to play with the many game systems available. As a newcomer on ROKH and its Mars Colonization Program, you must find ways to survive by exploring Mars in your basic astronaut suit, looking for resources. Oxygen, food, water – all your life support systems will have to be cautiously managed.”

We first heard about ROKH back in 2015 when it released its teaser to the world. Just about a year ago, developer Darewise Entertainment launched a Kickstarter for the game seeking over $100,000, but that crowdfunding attempt was canceled when it achieved only about a fifth of its goal. Since then, the early access launch has been kicked around a few times — first to September 2016, then January 2017, and now to next month. Stay tuned for more on the game as it’s one of the titles we’ll be covering in our nascent survival column!

Yeah, the whole PvP question is what I want to know.

Found this blurb on GameInsider

“The great thing is you will not be alone. Player can join forces with their friends to maximize their efforts and resources they put into surviving. Trade with other friendly crews to continue developing your own ecosystem. But beware, as some groups will be more into domination or taking what you have spent valuable tie creating. They will use every system available to loot your resources and base, from direct armed attack to a sneakier hacking program.”

Too bad.

Interesting. Should I assume because it says survival that it will be plagued with non-con pvp? I watched all of the videos on the site but either missed it, or they never made it clear.

How is it a scam if they haven’t taken anyone’s money yet?

Sorry, but I didn’t see any new twist to the survival sandbox genre in this video!

Been there, done that!
