Above and Beyond Technologies just keeps plugging away at their MMORPG, The Repopulation. If you’ve played the game (currently in Alpha) or have just been following it closely, you may have wondered why updates seem so few and far in between.
While the game has been receiving updates on a regular schedule, the communication of those updates has been limited to the “monthly updates” provided by the developers. This lag in communication could lead to some pretty large issues down the line. To rectify this, The Repopulation will now be giving small “patch notes” type updates more frequently…starting with patch 14.12.1 which is being loaded onto servers as I write.
This patch is VERY big. If there’s been issues in game that have driven you away from the game, you may want to take a peek at the patch notes because there’s a big chance that your issues have been touched upon.
In today’s patch, Plymouth City and other areas of the game are starting to receive a graphic update that includes both texture changes and performance improvements. The game’s user interface (particularly the chat functions) have also benefited from a lot of extra special attention.
Combat has also received a number of changes, including the fixing of a major global cooldown bug, and while the combat still isn’t quite where Above and Beyond Technologies wants it, the next major patch is tackling combat head-on.
This literally just scratches the surface of The Repopulation’s latest patch. If you’re in game already (you can buy into Early Access on Steam) let us know what you think of all of the updates below!
