The Repopulation, the upcoming free to play sand box MMORPG from Above and Beyond Technologies, has quite a large patch going into the game today and, mercifully for some of us, the game is receiving a more in depth tutorial to guide new players into the sandbox experience.
Previously, The Repopulation did have a tutorial but it was short, very direct, and player feedback showed that many players were confused when they entered the sandbox world. The new patch adds a larger open area of tutorial goodness and actually caters nicely to those players that need a bit more guidance while still allowing those that want to just "go and figure it out" the ability to do so.
Upon starting, players will be placed in the tutorial area and will still have a short, streamlined "quest" like system to get them started. Once over though, players have a choice: they can embark into the game proper, or, if they need a bit more help getting started, they can stay in the tutorial zone and complete off shoot side quest type objectives to learn more about The Repopulation. It's a nice compromise in my book.
Check out the rather lengthy patch notes, too. UI fixes, balances, changes, additions, the patch notes just seem to go on forever!
