What the developers say:

Nether is officially in early access, and those brave enough can test their skills in this unique, first-person urban survival game where danger lurks around every corner.

With the early access, players will receive a solid, but not yet final version of the game. It will be fun as hell, but don't expect that it will be perfect 100 percent of the time. Since it is early access, Nether is also not ready to be reviewed.

As one of the first players in the game, your feedback will play a vital role in helping us create the best survival gaming experience possible. We'll be regularly updating Nether with new content, fine-tuning game play and adding community-selected features. To make sure changes don’t blindside you, we’ll post what’s new with each update on this page as well as our social media channels.

Don’t be afraid to share your feedback – all of it helps and will only make the game better. You can send your thoughts and ideas to us via social media or on our forums at forums.playnether.com.

Help Admins Fight Hackers!

April 9th, 2014

Help Admins Fight Hackers!
In an effort to help fight cheating and abusive players, we will be taking a community-based approach to fighting hacks! To start off, PoXyz (Admin) and myself will be helping monitor servers along with other server admins. Along with your help, we can make a big difference.


How to Help

Your best bet is to report hacking or abusive players immediately via the the player report form located here https://forums.playnether.com/forumdisplay.php?23-Player-Hack-Report-Form
We will have this open when we are monitoring servers.

What is important to share?

The server name, name of player, and reason for reporting are the most important pieces of information that will help us catch any abusive or cheating players. Sharing video or images will also help greatly especially when we are not online to jump on the server.

IMPORTANT LINK

Player Report Form : https://forums.playnether.com/forumdisplay.php?23-Player-Hack-Report-Form

This is just the start of the community approach and we welcome feedback and suggestions

“Meet Nether, Phosphor’s DayZ Killer.”

“Combat feels Fast and Fluid.”

“this game puts together several elements that aren't commonly seen in MMOs, and even its survival aspect — a theme we've seen a lot of lately — is fairly refreshing.”

About the Game

Nether is a first-person urban survival gaming experience unlike any other. Nether forces players to make quick life-saving decisions in an unforgiving environment. In this post-apocalyptic urban world, death is waiting around every corner, at the top of high-rise buildings, and in the grasp of powerful teleporting creatures known as Nethers. To navigate this high-tension environment, players must use skill and craft in order to obtain food, weapons, supplies, and other resources necessary to survive in a desolate and dangerous city. Players will need to choose whether or not to team up with others or go at it solo against the Nethers, other players, and unpredictable, treacherous world objectives. In the end, players must decide if they will Prey or Pray.

Features:
  • A vast and vertical urban/city environment, where players can access nearly all of the buildings, including multi-story skyscrapers
  • First-person perspective creates a true survival experience
  • The need to fulfill a world objective, coupled with scarce resources encourages emergent and cooperative gameplay
  • Meld of PvE (player versus environment) and PvP (player versus player)
  • Survival needs, such as hunger and stamina that players will need to maintain to live
  • A variety of dangerous enemies with different skills and behaviors
  • New weapons and items become available as players explore the game world
  • Safe zones that need to be defended from Nethers and where players can purchase, sell, trade and store items
  • Up to 64 players per game server
  • Single purchase, downloadable client allows full game access without subscription
