Despre acest joc

Perpetuum is a persistent, sandbox, single server, massively multiplayer sci-fi rpg (MMORPG). Control huge robots and mechs to gain access to an alien planet's resources and knowledge, amass huge wealth, or even claim part of the world for yourself using terraforming and complex infrastructure.

Main Features


  • No Monthly Fees – Buy once, play forever. Enjoy a constantly evolving world with periodic feature upgrades.
  • Sci-Fi Setting – Perpetuum is set in a unique sci-fi environment inhabited by robots and alien technology.
  • Persistent Game World – Perpetuum features a large, persistent, single shard online game world. Players all play on the same server together. Changes made to the game world by players are permanent.
  • Industry – Perpetuum features a complex, multi-tier industrial system that enables players to have both small and large scale industrial operations.
  • Economy – The economy is completely player driven. Other than basic items, everything on the market is manufactured by players, the prices dictated by supply and demand.
  • Player-Built Infrastructure – Players are able to raise their own settlements in the unoccupied areas of the Perpetuum world, where they are able to enforce their own rules as they see fit.
  • Terraforming – Players are able to form the world of Nia as they see fit to aid their goals. The terrain can be raised or lowered in certain areas and thus settlements can be protected by intricate strongholds, and temporary shelters can be created in the heat of battle to protect vulnerable allies. It's all up to the player's imagination.
  • Character Progression – Time-based character progression requires no grind and provides a level playing field for casual and hardcore players alike.
  • Large Scale PvP – Players are able to clash in huge battles for control of territory and resources. Formable terrain, destructible scenery and player built infrastructure all play key roles in the course of war.
  • High Customizability – Players of Perpetuum have a large number of ways to customize their robots for the various goals they strive towards.
  • Natural Processes – The Perpetuum game world always changes through natural processes. Destroyed plants grow back and spread, and outmined resources replenish over time.

A time based MMO involving mechs. The only other game remotely like this is Eve online. You can't dispute it. The skill progression here is much better though because you don't have to actively pick what skills you want to level up, you just accrue points every day.

I'm pretty much addicted to this game. I played it in 2012 but stopped due to boredom. But I'm back several years later because there just aren't too many games like this on the market. Perp definately has potential. A few short comings in certain areas, such as the poor graphics and GUI. The lead dev Zoom has stated that they'd like to do a graphics update but lack of funding is preventing that. This game has a very small audience but die hard fans.

The PVP and combat isn't as intense as Eve. You can't rotate around your opponent so fast that their lasers cant hit you. But you can use the environment to your advantage. Faster mechs generally do far better as they can run away if things get hot. PVP is Perp is full loot. That means when you die, you lose everything and your opponent gets some of your loot. PvP isn't completely open however. There are various islands. You are relatively safe from PvP for quite some time as by the time you make it to the beta islands, you're pretty powered up. With this being a time based skill progression game however, that will take some time......unless you purchase the two packs along side the main game. Those two packs save you 5 1/2 months of time. I think they're worth $20.

So the main issue with Perp is the lack of a player base. The game is mostly player driven. That means that after the starter islands, you won't find gear or new mechs sold by NPC's, only by players. So if their aren't any players left, then you pretty much have to craft everything yourself. I've never found it difficult to find gear though, at least not yet.

The game has ALOT of grinding and is pretty much P2W unfortunately. This really can't be disputed. You can pay real money to buy extension point upgrades that give you more skill points over time than non paying customers. As this game has full loot pvp on the beta and gamma islands, people that put alot of real money into this game will get ahead faster. The argument could be said that those that don't wish to pvp can just stay on the alpha islands. Ok....so about half the content is on the latter islands. If you want to build colonies and terraform for your guild (corporation) then you need to leave the alpha islands. You will eventually pvp with other folks that want to ruin your day. I can say however, that pvp in Perp isn't as sadistic as Eve. You won't have people camping your mining spot waiting for you to jettison some ore so they can steal it and flag themselves as hostile.

So there you. You can mine, treasure hunt, do combat, build modules and mechs for other players, etc etc. The only thing you can't do in this sandbox MMO is be a trader I suppose becasue most of the game is player driven. So I suppose you could raise inflation if you wanted to be a jerk. But this isn't elite dangerous level's of trading where one hub needs supplies more than another hub. It's all mostly player driven after the starter island.


Here is a Let's Play I did. It explains the UI and how the mission structure works.

Horrifyingly convoluted process to do anything in this game..
Example, to fight something, you need to open your inventory, open your cargo, open your storage, drag each thing in and deploy. (Not so bad so far). Now you need to open your poi list, click a guy to kill, wait 10 secs, open your interaction hud, open your gun menu, click the guy, fire a bit, then right click the gun menu, click reload, wait...

This is not a game, it's a chore.

While brand new to the game, Perpetuum is a blast!

To start with, playing through the tutorials is a giant help. Not only do they explain, but they provide additional resources to help out once you "officially" begin the game.

The community is very small currently. However, with more reviews and people in general promoting, this could be a giant game. Along the likes of EvE.

I definitely recommend this game, especially for $10. Its a blast that will definitely keep you coming back for more.

EVE online does it better in every way. with next to no players, dated graphics. theres really nothing that makes it stand out. feels like a stripped down-rejiggered eve.

-
time based progression
no players
*no market
mechs feel coasty
not enough mechs
the islands
no variation with npcs
to much focus on pvp
+
none. i wasnt looking for eve mechs online.

Pretty ok.

Visuals are blocky and textures leave a lot to be desired. But it's basically EVE online, except with robots and limited to a single planet. Game could really use a UI makeover and cleanup, in addition to the aforementioned art stuff.

This game is not for everyone especially those who just wants to jump in and play in mechs due to skill system and permenat mech and equipment loss upon death.Though if you can over look that you will find a very good roboust sandboxish mmo with mechs in it and fairly friendly playerbase (if not small).

Once you get settled in and learn how the game works you are basicly free to do what you want within your skills parameters.

In short
Pros
-Very in depth systems with lots to do
-rewards exploration and risk taking
-big worlds
-Lots of crafting and building/terraforming

Cons
-Time based progression that can hinder player enjoyment due very slow leveling
-Low player population
-Crafting is very complex so don't expect to beable to make anything without investing a large amount into gathering and -skills to make crafting easier and cheaper.
-Permanent loss of mech and equip early on can be huge issue for new players.

Over all if you don't mind doing a bit of reading or experimenting and have a bit of time to kill every now and again this is a great game.

Though I would avoid this if you are looking for a game with moderately paced progression system and general.

I've been playing Perpetuum on and off since 2011, I only recently linked one of my accounts to Steam. While lacking in some areas and incomprehensible in others, it does have a certain charm and magnetism that keeps me coming back.

I will say that this game has the best, that is to say, most meaningful and engaging PvP of any game I've played - being able to have direct control of your mech is much more engaging than EVE (which this game is often compared to).

If you're a hardcore full loot PvPer that likes complicated but not deliberately overcomplicated game mechanics, a glacial learning curve, and gets off on the adrenaline shakes from potential glory/defeat in the heat of costly battles:

Than this game is for you.

I was playing 33 minutes and in those 33 minutes I played with FPS under 10 (my PC) and what I could see is that:
There is probably less then 50 players;
Tutorial is long;
Game is complicated (ui, landmarks etc.);
Game is no fun (at least what I saw);
That is practicly all I was able to do in game play tutorial =_=.
So if you just want to spend, for no reason, 9.99e then spend it on this game because you wont get anything in return especially you wont get fun.

Great indie-mmo. Considering the work the Dev's put in to develop their own game engine is noteworthy. It does make development cycles slower. Good cheaper alternative to Eve. I consider the small community an opportunity to make a name for one self and impact greater change on the political landscape than one could in more popular mmos.
Market system allows for the same gaming and economic expertise to take advantage of low supplied, or high demand bottlenecks in production chains.
Combat is exciting, using cover, landscape, line-of-sight, or ballistic pathing of projectiles to calculate hits/misses. They just fixed artifacting to make it more intuitive (its super easy now).
This mmorpg needs only one thing: MORE PEOPLE that plays it!!!
Also the dev's are metalheads: if that isn't a reason to try it out, then I don't know what is. :D

I'm not the greatest at writing reviews, so I'll start with the basics: Should you play Perpetuum? Yes! Now that we have gotten that out of the way, let's get into "why" you should.

Perpetuum is a very interesting and deep game that you will hopefully spend many hours playing. There is so much that game offers you from mining/harvesting materials to crafting various commodities to running various assignments for different factions to base building to combat... The only true limit is your imagination (and the time and NIC you are willing to invest). Taking the time to plan out and finally outfit the perfect combat robot you have been hoping for, hopping from island to island to make that next big sale, or sneaking around an island full of hostile enemy players hoping to find that next big artifact stash is a lot of fun, especially when you take the time to invest in both your skills and your gear.

"But running missions and gathering materials is boring, and fighting enemies is either too easy or too hard!" Please ask yourself - what is it I really want to do in Perpetuum? Do I want to build large bases in the PvP islands, fight enemy corporations, or maybe even collaborate with other players to corner the market and make a ton of money together? Whatever the answer, you will probably want to join a player corporation that has similar goals. Not only that, but you'll hopefully find a group of interesting and fun people to play with; and don't think you are limited to just talking to your fellow corp members! Not only can you create your own chat channels, but there are global channels like General Chat and Help Chat as well. You are in control of what you want to do in this game.

"But I hear that there is a low player population - what does that mean for me coming into the game?" This is another valid concern; after all, who wants to shell out their hard-earned money for something and not have fun? Steam statistics are only one way of seeing part of the game population online at a given time, and you are able to leave any chat channel except for you corporation's channel and either the terminal or vicinity channel for the island that you are in or on. As such, it will look as though there aren't many people on. At the same time if you are interested in the game, hopefully you will try the game out, find something that interests you and maybe either get your friends to play or find a group of players to hang out with in-game. The population problem is something that needs to be addressed, but we can't address it of you aren't playing with us!

"But what about the community? Are they mean? Salty? Tell me more!" Well, in my time playing the game I've seen General Chat be very quiet for a decent period of time, then someone speak up and everything begins to cascade from there (usually). People are mostly very helpful and pleasant to either speak with or joke around with - always feel free to ask questions! Are people going to respond every time you say hi? Probably not. But the longer you are on the more players you will run into and in turn the more opportunities you will have to talk to people who have similar interests, senses of humor, etc. I lucked out when I joined my first corp, and I hope that you do to!

"The whole daily allocation of extension points (EP) thing turns me off." Okay, I won't argue that this is a more niche game in that sense. A lot of MMOs out there certainly let you level at your own pace and ultimately hit a maximum power level. But if someone has spent the time investing in a particular skillset in Perpetuum, they are doing so because they are interested in it. That also means that they probably aren't good in other areas of the game. You are able to respecialize your character (for an amount of paid-for currency relative to how many skills you want to retrain and the levels of those skills), but you hopefully will start out with an idea of what interests you and only need to make minor alterations or pursue new skill areas moving forward. You can (almost) totally wipe the slate clean if you wish to too (you cannot respecialize your initially spent extension points, so DO choose those wisely!). If you want to gain EP at a faster rate, there is always the option of either buying ICE (basically a 50% EP booster for 30 days that also does not require you to log in every 3 days to receive EP) via the cash shop or via in-game NIC on the market.

"Wait, I have to log in every three days?" Well, yes. Here is why: the log-in system, just like the skill (extension) system is meant to encourage long-term play. It is a good way to encourage community participation and growth, especially since this is not a subscription-based game. Hopefully our logging in every few days will keep us playing, facilitate us meeting new people. keep the in-game market running, cause new player-run events to happen...

I sincerely hope that you come visit Nia and the rest of us Perpetuum players. I don't want to make it sound as though I want to justify the game despite its faults (and let's be honest for a moment, all games have them), but hopefully give you a different insight into what you might expect should you purchase this game. There aren't many games like this out there, and provided that this is the sort of game that might interest you, I really think you might enjoy it!

P.S.: I would like to make a special mention of the Upgrade Kit DLCs, if only because they did give me a headstart, not only with the EP provided but some of the items from the AID devices being able to purchase a couple months of ICE bought with the credits included. If you play the game for a while and want that extra boost, or want to start off strong when you make your first character, check them out!

Absolute gem of a game, fairly large open world, with player ran markets, if you want to play solo or in a group you have that option you're not forced to join a Corporation if you don't wish to. PvE or PvP is entirely your choice. there are are six core islands that have pvp disabled by default and twelve additional islands where pvp is defaulted as on. In the furthest islands you're able to construct bases with attached facilities to increase production speeds and percentages so you can craft faster and more effecently, start farms and mining facilties to generate income.

Pros:
*Large open world with each island feeling unique in terrain and layout.
(Supposedly the Gamma/Outer islands are terraformable but I haven't gotten that far yet)
*Dynamic market ran by players
*Fairly deep and expansive crafting system, granting you the ability to build any item or bot in game
*Combat is actually complex, more than just lock target and spam missiles. There is a great deal of planning and reposistioning involved along with specific module timing that can make or break a fight

Cons:
*UI is a bit of a hassle when you first start however you can quickly and easily resize the windows and make the hud shape to your desire.
*Crafting can get very tedious in the higher tiers as you most contruct blueprints and items of the lower tiers and craft them into increasingly expensive items. This however does become less of an issue if you specialize into crafting and production or have someone in your corporation that is.
*Kinda long tutorial that goes over every little aspect of the game, however it does award you a handful of ammo, modules, and some higher tier mechs for completing the tutorial. My biggest complaint is that you have to complete the tutorial to recieve these rewards every time you start a new character, which could get annoying.
*Low population, as of this writing there is fifty players online. In the past two weeks I've seen it stay steadily at a hundred. The small population can be a plus however as that allows for more personal and intense corporation skirmishes in the outer islands when competing for dominance. Overall the somewhat low player count doesn't hurt the game but an increase of players would be nice.


Overall, this game is an absolute gem for just $10. If you give it a chance and join a corporation you'll have a grand time making friends and growing in power.

I won this game through Steam's summer sale (IIRC) where you had to use gems to bet on games and items, so I did not spend the full price on this game.

However I believe the current price ($10) is justified for the enjoyment I've gotten out of Perpetuum. I liked it enough to spend $10 on one of the upgrade packs, and I plan on buying the next when I can.

I am writing this review from a casual point of view. I play this game with a relaxed mindset so if you're looking for a hardcore gamer, you are reading the wrong review. Here is what I have noticed in my roughly 180 hours so far.

RATING: 70/100

PROS:
  • Massive open world. I still haven't visited all the sights of Nia.
  • Passive time-based progression. Extension Points (EP) accumulate whether or not you are active. These are used to upgrade your skills, so naturally, the older players will have slight advantages over newer ones.
  • High levels of build customization and specialization. There are tons of items to choose from to fine-tune to your liking.
  • Varying levels of risk and player interaction. You don't have to join a PvP corporation to make a living, but the added risk definetely pays off.
  • Smooth user interface. This might just be me, but the Windows-like menus are really good for managing lots of information at once.
  • Simple gameplay with complex mechanics. Locking on to targets takes just a few clicks, but there are a lot of things to consider when engaging enemies, like what kind of armor they have, distance of their weapons and yours, and several Electronic/Energy-Warfare tactics.
  • Accessible in-depth wiki. Referencing official information does not require alt+tabbing out of the game as the Perpetuum wiki can be accessed with a few clicks while playing, and the information provides a lot of the formulas and intricacies for you, so there is little guesswork involved when optimizing builds.

CONS:
  • Dwindling playerbase. While I do enjoy not being blown up in PvP-enabled areas, there aren't a whole lot of people online to begin with. I'm not sure what turned off so many players, but there could definitely be a revival if an effort is made. The servers and mechanics are just fine, all is needed is some better recruitment.
  • Small variety in environments. Compared to how many different items there are in the game, some of the islands feel a tad barren, repetitive, or otherwise monotonous. Considering the amount of time it takes to travel across Nia, some refurbishing would be nice on the eyes. I play on medium quality settings, but the game already sacrifices graphics fidelity for performance of its large world.

I have been making a living by simple mining, PvE assignments, and artifact hunting. I shy away from PvP since I don't like the stress involved but the community tends to be nice. Even the few times I have gotten blown up while on Beta islands, my killers were courteous and offered advice on how not to get caught next time, realizing I wasn't a threat to them only afterwards.

My rating is subject to change. improving if the developers add more content, rectify some problems, and/or if more players are introduced.

I love open world sandboxes, but this one most certainly needs some work. As a rule I do not enjoy PvP, so my reactions are towards the resource and development side of the game.

First up, the UI. Tedious and badly designed and confusing. It's like someone took Windows 95 and tried to make it into a game. What I want is an interactive terrain map so I can enjoy the graphics, not a screen full of menus.

Complexity, generally quite good. The development tree is nice and detailed, with a huge range of options. Sadly the variety of resources is somewhat limited and there is no difference in quality. The game is all about how much you can extract and this has to be done in-game. I would rather have a robot that I could leave mining, like the extractors in SWG, and come back to check up on it and empty its hopper every couple of days.This then makes a bit of competition, and the search for the best minerals becomes much more compelling.

The surveying is good with migrating resources, which I like. Unfortunately it is spoilt by the interface, which only allows me to zoom in and out of the map, and does not pan. Neither can I use my scanned markers as waypoints, which are also fiddly to manage and the type print is so small I have to squint at the screen. Also, the multitude of charges for scanners and mining kit is just annoying. It would be much better with a single universal charge, far less fiddly. I would like to be able to zip across the tarrain pining away multiple scanners like I did in my landspeeder.

Travel is particularly slow and annoying. Fortunately I don't need to go anywhere much yet, but if you have a call to meet up with your corp, you could be in for a 45 minute haul to cross the islands to reach them. I would prefer to have a quick teleport to any terminal where there is a robot stored, which makes much more sense. As it is, I dont show up to most corp missions, because I can't be arsed with the travel time.

With game missions thankfully there is a nice end of mission teleport, which is a small blessing that means you don't need to haul back to base everytime you want to log out.

Exploration, so far as I can tell, is largely pointless. There are no points of interest in the game and no rewards for exploring the gameworld. You might aswell stay on one island until your corp need you or unless you need to find that rare mineral.

Combat is slow, painfully slow, targetting and making sure you have the right ammo and moving all the flipping windows and menus around. Yuk! I prefer something twitch based with a joystick, then you might get me back into PvP.

Thankfully XP is rewarded on a loyalty base, like EVE, so long as you log in each day you get your quota. No need for a tiresome grind. I will stick with it for a bit to explore the tech tree, but as soon as someone creates a better surveying terrain interactive interface with a more SWG-like mining method I will move again.

There is nothing in this game to make me rush home from work to want to play and it is unlikely to ever be a point of conversation with gaming buddies other than a 30 second grumble about how it could be done better.

tldr; I'm a nub, and so far the game is ^^^ with lots left to learn - but the early game is a sharp-ish learning curve.

--

Disclaimer: At the time of this writing I am 6 hours into the game; this review is written from a very nub perspective.

My first impression of this game from the trailers was, "This could be what a Mechwarrior/Battletech MMO could have been..." Well, it turns out, not exactly; while the game view is notably more like Mech Commander than anything else I've played, the rest of the game play is very reminiscent of EVE, complete with things that sound hard to do, until you do them. Once. That's all it takes.

The tutorial is very detailed (and for good reason) but moves quickly as you go step-by-step through learning the interface, which is largely accessible by visible buttons on the UI. The mech bay view (where you get your missions, store your unused-but-not-sold items, store materials you will eventually sell/use for crafting, research, skillgain, buy/sell, and configure your mechs [called robots in the game, since your pilot is remote rather than within]) is fairly easy to adapt to, and is one of the reasons I mention EVE. Cargo is nearly identical in terms of access, repairs, movement between bays, and unit configuration, and market access and use it all but the same as I recall it (from about 4 years ago), but skill gains are different, almost opposite. Where in EVE you would select a skill and a timer would start and count down to completion of study, this game accrues skill points daily at a set rate (which can be increased with ingame functions); when you login you get your allotment of points, then for the next 2 days you gain points again, whether you login or not. If you don't login after the third day though your skillpoint gain stops, and will begin again when you login next. Said points are then spent for an immediate gain of a skill on a scale from 1-10, with difficulty/complexity ratings that modify skill gain (again, same as EVE did) to cost more points the more complex the skill is rated.

Combat is fairly straightforward. The one thing that I do not like is that there seems to be no 'shooting from the hip' at all, ever; you wait until your guns lock on, even if you're at point blank range, then engage them and they fire on a timer, automatically quitting when the primary target is out of range or destroyed.

You can loot containers while fighting. You can lock several targets at once, provided they are in range of your gear/skill. You can reload guns in combat.

There are non-combat focused missions as well as combat missions, and you can toggle PVP on/off.

In base areas there are tiles placed to speed movement; very helpful.

The chat community seems friendly so far, and is knowledgeable and helpful when asked clear questions.

Completing the tutorial was an area of boredom, until I realized that I actually did need to know 'all this crap.' DO the tutorials, but don't stick around trying to farm easy loot from drones, or using your materials to gain research, or anything else; you all but full reset once you join the real world via choosing a faction. I advise that you want to budget ~2 hours for the tutorial. That's LONG, and don't be in doubt, it can be done much faster, but use this time to learn the game as far as you can, given no true baptism by fire.

This is a serious game for serious gamers, but can be enjoyed by teens on up to graybeards. There is some number crunching, and I have yet to PVP, but so far... so good.

Bottom line: I reckon I can get a couple hundred hours out of this game in its current state.

8/10 would buy game on sale again. For the time I expect to put in, paying full price would still be a good deal.

Nice job, Avatar Creations!

Let me start by saying i am a 13 year player of EVE-Online and that should tell you a lot about my perspective.

So, Perpetuum...Well, its EVE with mechs!

What is there not to like about that? There are many things in the game that will frustrate any EVE player and completely block a new guy to the hardcore style.

So, let me start with the bad.

The Bad:
Stuff that isnt explained, gameplay mechanics that are completely useless and only serve to enfuriate players, procedures that OMG shouldnt be there at all and drive players nuts especialy at the start.

The Good:
Its a copy of EVE in lots and lots of ways but without complicating stuff so much.

The Awesome:
The story is just beautiful. I loved it the second i read it and just makes me adore the sci-fi setting.

In the end, i fully recomend it for any EVE player and anyone of those will enjoy it immensely. For a standard run of the mill player i would also recomend but with the propper caveats attached.

I was quite surprised by this game.
In this you are effectively a computer virus of some form that infests one of the local robots. Through this you eventually grow on your path towards a specific race of robots, each with their strong suits. The green bots favor missiles and shields (basically turning the game into a form of high-stakes "peek-a-boo"), the blue robots are quicker and utilize railgun tech, meanwhile the yellow robots are sturdy armor tankers that enjoy lasers. There are many, many traits that go with the robot, each of which can be skilled up by spending daily-acquired skillpoints. The skills vary from mining efficiency to how fast you can fire a weapon.
Even in the earlier stages of the game you can find good and sustainable ways for income to your character in the form of hunting mobs/pvp raiding/industry, familiar to the ever-so-referenced EVE Online. You can even start an alien farm. With simple gameplay mechanics it is strangely relaxing to have your robo simply unleash hell on mobs while taking in the well-thought-out alien environment. Plus, if you decide to throw down only 10$bux a month (which is about the price of a chipotle lunch) you get a lot more skillpoints that grow at a continual rate.

PROS:
Simple gameplay, high ceiling
Player-ran eco
Player-ran territory control (higher levels)
Does not take all of your day, can be played in segments
New-player friendly community
Cute robots
Murderous robots
Bizarre art-style
Surreal OST
Solo play is very feasible

CONS:
Requires a thirst for knowledge
UI can feel a bit strange at times
Earlier areas are very open, almost lonesomely so
Enemy AI may need a bit of tweaking
Almost too easy to farm at times

It's like EVE, but with robots instead of spaceships. I really like how they handled mining, even if it is still a pain in the ♥♥♥. Buy this game, play this game, pilot a green missle boat.

I am writing up a quick review based on my first 40 hours in game.
I did play the 30 day trial of EVE, most of the time 15+ hours a day. I enjoyed that one but always in the back of my mind was the thought, hmmm I need to make enough money in game to pay for the $15 a month sub and try to advance my character.
That was a major turn off for me with EVE, paying for a sub for 6 months to a year before you get enough skill points to be "good."

Then I stumbled upon this little gem.
Only $30 total and you own the game, no monthly subscription necessary. (Edit, base game is now $10 instead of $30) The same price as a movie ticket for 2 hours.
If you do buy the 2 DLC packs for $20 they save you about 5 months of daily logging in and you can get into a much bigger badder robot from day 1.
I would like to point out that there is an option to spend $10 a month to get a 150% increase in daily skill points if you want to get into something faster.

To be very simple is it EVE Online with robots.
Let me state right here and now this is not a FPS, first person shooter.
If you think it is like MWO or the old Mechwarrior games it is not.
Controls are your standard WASD you target the enemy then either select weapons one by one or hit space to have them all shoot at the target.

Everything you could do in EVE you can do here.
Solo play PVE, Farming, Mining, Crafting even player owned bases.
The game also has full PVP with 100% loot on the Beta and Gamma islands.
Robot death is permanent, if you lose your ride you need to buy or make another one.
Don't worry if you ever run out of robots you always get the free starter rookie bot the Arke.

The graphics are a bit outdated but this game has been around for over 6 years.
The soundtrack gets old pretty fast but you can mute it and play your own.

The potential here is huge.

Now for the downsides.
This game needs more players. No getting around it. It will never be as big as EVE with 20000 players, the game simply won't support it. The islands are kinda small and even with 10 people on each one during peak times it gets a bit crowded.
The entire market is player based, like in EVE, so everything in game is made by a player.
WIth ony a few hundred total players the markets are pretty bare. Most of the modules and robots are made and sold inside the big PVP player corps. The materials needed for the higher tier gear T3 and T4 are locked behind the PVP Beta islands so if you only do PVE good luck getting the best gear.
Second, lack of room.
I know, I know you guys are all scratching your heads saying but you just said there were not enough players.
The landscape of Perpetuum is 36 interconnected islands.
The islands themselves are pretty small and you can travel from one tip to the other tip in less then an hour real time.
This is broken down into 3 factions, lasers, cannons and missiles. I have not been here long enough to know their names but there you have it. So each faction has a starting island, an Alpha with no PVP, then there are 3 Alpha 2 islands, also no PVP but tougher PVE robots. Then there are the beta and finally the gamma islands. So out of 36 islands you have a total of 3 x 1 + 3 x 2 = 9 PVE islands where the entire community hangs out.

Third and last complaint / suggestion.
This game needs more robot types, there are way too few choices, one noob bot, 1 light bot per faction, 1 light EW bot per faction, 1 assualt mech per faction, 1 mech per faction and finally 1 heavy mech per faction. There are also a handful of industry robots you can have.
What this game desperately needs is more players, then more resources for the developers so it can reach its full potential and be truly great.

I highly recommend this game and for the incredible cheap price, cheaper then even most DLC for a MMO today you get it all.

I never played any PVP.
If you want to join a PVP corp you will need a headset, mic and Teamspeak 3, mandatory requirement for every corp with more then 3 players in it at this time.

Absolute gem of a game, fairly large open world, with player ran markets, if you want to play solo or in a group you have that option you're not forced to join a Corporation if you don't wish to. PvE or PvP is entirely your choice. there are are six core islands that have pvp disabled by default and twelve additional islands where pvp is defaulted as on. In the furthest islands you're able to construct bases with attached facilities to increase production speeds and percentages so you can craft faster and more effecently, start farms and mining facilties to generate income.

Pros:
*Large open world with each island feeling unique in terrain and layout.
(Supposedly the Gamma/Outer islands are terraformable but I haven't gotten that far yet)
*Dynamic market ran by players
*Fairly deep and expansive crafting system, granting you the ability to build any item or bot in game
*Combat is actually complex, more than just lock target and spam missiles. There is a great deal of planning and reposistioning involved along with specific module timing that can make or break a fight

Cons:
*UI is a bit of a hassle when you first start however you can quickly and easily resize the windows and make the hud shape to your desire.
*Crafting can get very tedious in the higher tiers as you most contruct blueprints and items of the lower tiers and craft them into increasingly expensive items. This however does become less of an issue if you specialize into crafting and production or have someone in your corporation that is.
*Kinda long tutorial that goes over every little aspect of the game, however it does award you a handful of ammo, modules, and some higher tier mechs for completing the tutorial. My biggest complaint is that you have to complete the tutorial to recieve these rewards every time you start a new character, which could get annoying.
*Low population, as of this writing there is fifty players online. In the past two weeks I've seen it stay steadily at a hundred. The small population can be a plus however as that allows for more personal and intense corporation skirmishes in the outer islands when competing for dominance. Overall the somewhat low player count doesn't hurt the game but an increase of players would be nice.


Overall, this game is an absolute gem for just $10. If you give it a chance and join a corporation you'll have a grand time making friends and growing in power.

Very early viewpoint from a new user -

Like has been said before, this game does borrow ALOT from EVE, which I played for nearly a year and probably understood about 25% of the game. The two games are very similar in both pros and cons. The depth and possibilities are fantastic but its a steep learning curve. The basics are easy to master, so its quick to dive in, but more advanced combat can be difficult to grasp for new people, and the bigger global territorial pvp aspect is nearly impossible to really understand without help. Luckily it seems to have a very helpful, if small, playerbase that seem to be mature and friendly. The one time cost with no monthly fees makes it definately worth a shot. I'd recommend you try.

Eve-online but with mechs is the best way to describe this games controls. However it does lack alot of the depth and playerbase when compared to eve. The lack of player base is a big issue as the PVE get boring and repedative quite quickly, but they are trying to address these issues now.

The game has never fully grabbed me and kept me for more than a month or so but I still enjoy playing every now and again and now its a pay once game thats not really too much of an issue.

I hear the price is going to be dropping, and for £10 you gotta give it a go, even if it only grabs you for a month or so you've got more than you moneys worth.

I fully recomend this game as a lower quality eve clone. Eve with robots. Has the same concept, similar player driven economy, combat, mining...etc. As a former eve player i adapted easily to this new game. Major downside for me so far BUT i havent played long , would be it seems i only see 16 insland with 6 of them apearing safe. Maiby im wrong and there are more . Worth 7.3 E ? YES worth more....im not too sure. If you dont like subscription based EVE and want a more casual game but with similar concepts Perpetuum is the answer. Pay once 7 E and have fun. I personaly spend 6 hours mining for a new robot while watching some movies online. Similar to what i did in EVE :D The combat is fun too. Meaning its the same as EVE very dependent on gear and ur choices of expertise. NOt reflexes well at least not that much. BUT i havent pvp ed yet. Well long story short its a smart well made eve online clone that i fully recomend for the winter sale. FUll price no. not yet.

HI
First of all i strongly recomend this game,as a holiday buy, verry similar with eve but no subscription required and only 7Euros.This game is a sandbox mmo , you do what you want and what you like.. no restrictions.. no labor or a set amount of points to consume .I recomend Perpetuum for semi harcore gamers moustly..is kinda time consuming but in a funn way.

Pro:
- sandbox
- live echonomy
- no pay to win (like moust games are)
- no pay to play(like no subscription)
- complex crafting sistem

Cons:
- kinda old graphics
- low population

Even though I only have 25 hours of play time so far in Perpetuum, I can say it feels like the game I have been looking for for a long time. It has it all, pvp, pve, crafting, a player controlled market, a very good community feel, and a wonderful look to the graphics. If you have played EVE you will get a feel for how this game works straight away, but being a bittervet is NOT a requirement to enjoy Perpetuum! There is crafting, a deep and complex system I have not even scratched the surface of, and resource gathering is interactive and absorbing. The combat is also something I am only just getting into - I have been focussing so far on gathering - but it feels and looks rewarding and fun. The "levelling" here is aka EVE too, you assign points to "Extensions" to boost various attributes or parts of your robot (did I say you are a consciousness controlling a robot via a miniature wormhole? Very cool premise to this game!), but in this game you accrue Extension Points daily, and assign as you want. This is a pvp sandbox, so combat in certain zones is inevitable if not mandatory, but I am looking forward to it:) This game has a lot of similarities to EVE, but it is not EVE, it is it's only animal and stands apart from its more well known Icelandic relative. The dev team here seem friendly, and the small but dedicated fan base certainly are friendly and helpful. You do not need to buy the upgrades, but it will give you a leg up in terms of EPs, however due to the nature of EP accrual, new players will catch up with veterans soon enough. This is a game where the long view of things is needed, but honestly that is a good thing in this day of "rush to the end game and move on" gaming. I really do urge you to get this game - B2P and worth it even if you miss one of the frequent sales. Hope to see you soon on Nia!
