Talk about a slow burn. The Repopulation has been a topic on this site and our podcast for years now. Surprisingly, we know only a little more about the game now than we did back then. That's all about to change though as Above and Beyond Technologies has officially moved The Repopulation to Steam's Early Access.
The Early Access cost is currently $33.99 (on sale until December 29th, normal cost is $39.99) and will also grant purchasers the chance to buy a lifetime membership once the game launches. Plan on that fee being about the same price as a normal box cost.
While The Repopulation will be free to play, a tiered membership is also planned to be revealed in full soon.
If you've been looking for the next "Star Wars: Galaxies" type game, The Repopulation might be the closest you'll be coming in a long time. With a more sandbox, "play the way you want to play" attitude, Above and Beyond is trying to allow players to literally only take part in the type of content they enjoy playing.
The launch of Early Access also means that there will be no more character wipes (unless a change in the game requires one) planned and the Non Disclosure Agreement is no longer in effect. This means we'll probably start seeing quite a bit more about the title soon, so stay tuned.
