>UPDATE: 11/21 – Other sites have Pangaea billed as a free-to-play title but we were unable to confirm that. We reached out to the Pangaea team and confirmed that the game will be buy-to-play. Here is their reply, “Pangaea will be distributed by the system of Buy-to-play, users who buy the game will get full access to game content. Apart from the games will run as DLC, with separate script and the expansion of the game world.”

Russian game developer LVR Studios officially announced its post-apocalyptic “MMO action game” this week, complete with a — very short — snippet of gameplay. The game, which passed Steam Greenlight back in October, is being billed as an “action game about survial in the post-apocalyptic world for PC. Mac, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.”

Pangaea: New World is being built using Unreal Engine 4 and being simultaneously developed for all the above-mentioned platforms, with support from Microsoft and Sony to make it work properly with console controls.

The game is tentatively set for release at the end of 2016.

    I am not so sure this was a mistake but a tactical ploy to promote a game that wasn’t free to play. If you want to promote such games why not create a section for buy to play games ?

      What tactics? I found a game that sounded interesting and every other site on the internet was calling f2p… including sites we consider to be generally well informed on such things. The game’s site didn’t say either way, so we rolled with it, but Mike contacted the company just in case. It turned out the entire internet was wrong.

        Not that it matters but in the Kickstarter the second option in donation list is a $12 selection that states
        “EARLY BIRD PC VERSION (WIN OR MAC) (Black Friday)

        – Digital Copy of Pangaea(retail $50) <<<
        – Thanks in the Credits as an Early Backer"

        So for me that pretty much says it all there.

          To a point. Kickstarter’s a little weird. Kind of like Early Access. You’re paying to get the game off the ground, not for actual access to the game and many developers with early bird versions, you’re granted early access while everyone who simply waits will be granted access for free.

          Basically. Kickstarter isn’t an accurate gauge.

    End of 2016. Its way to early for that news. We still have to wait 1 year.

    I do enjoy the post-apocalyptic setting, so I am looking forward to what happens to all these games.

    It’s interesting to see that most games with this setting are made by Russians though! Nothing wrong with that, but that is really interesting to me.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
