Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access gives players a chance to participate in the development of the game when we are still in a state where active changes are being made regularly. It provides the players with a chance to give their feedback and for us to take that feedback into account as we continue to refine features. Early Access also includes lifetime Membership post-launch and is similar to a one time box price.

That having been said, we want to make it perfectly clear that this is an Alpha test. You will undoubtedly encounter bugs and annoyances that may affect your gameplay experience. You may crash a lot and may be stuck with technical issues for a while. Some features of the game are still being implemented or refined, some graphics, animations, sounds, and much of the interface are placeholders and slated for revision prior to launch. Some parts of the world are still a work a progress.While our support team and community actively assists players in resolving these type of issues, If you are easily frustrated by these types of things, then Early Access is probably not for you and we would recommend waiting until the game launches or hits Open Beta.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It’s difficult to give firm dates when developing an MMORPG because many of the delays are reactionary. Players, through the community, will be a part of the decision on when the game moves into Beta and when it launches.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We think it is best to talk about additions, features, and overall scope we would like to achieve, but not to make specific promises about future events (e.g. when the game will be finished, exactly what the finished state of the game would be, or that planned future additions will definitely happen).

We have a break down of existing features vs upcoming features available in the main section below. Many features are currently implemented, but a few key features are still remaining including the Hardcore Ruleset and some Sieging and Nation functionality.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently in a new Early Alpha with a new development team, Idea Fabrik Studios (IFS). Patching has been put on hold until the core of the old code has been overhauled, optimized and fixed.

There will be a complete server wipe, including player data, at release and another one is planned for when we need to check the economy, most likely midway during Beta. Other wipes between now and then are not planned, but that is subject to change if necessary.

A lot of the main functionalities are already in, the servers are up full time and GMs are already at hand helping the player base. You are able to access housing, combat, pvp, entertainment and many other variations of play.

While the world is almost all available for exploration, there are some locations which have little to no content currently. The hardcore ruleset is not yet available, and sieges are currently disabled. There are also many areas of gameplay which are not yet optimized. You will encounter bugs, crashes, and many models do not yet have LOD (Level of Detail) which negatively affects performance. Some graphics or sounds are also placeholders. For example, you will notice that your ability icons are currently split between placeholders and the final versions. This will continue to improve throughout the course of testing.

A lot of the main functionality is already in, the servers are up full time and GM’s are already at hand helping the player base. You are able to access housing, combat, pvp, entertainment and many other variations of play.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The business model has not been finalized yet, but there will be no "pay-to-win" (P2W) cash shop; there is more about this at the bottom of the page.

There will be at least three different one time membership options at launch: Silver, Gold, and Platinum. We are currently only offering Silver memberships in Early Access; in the future we will also be opening up Gold and Platinum memberships again. They are currently unavailable as we want to get a lot of our primary fixes in and improve the stability of the game beforehand.

You will also be able to upgrade from Silver to the other membership options at any time once the membership upgrades are opened up again.

Some of the extra perks that are included as part of the Early Access packages will not be available for purchase after release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Currently we communicate with the community primarily through both, the game site forums and the Steam forums as well as Discord. We have GMs already on staff assisting new players even at this stage of development and we plan to further expand our community in the future. At this point in development we are taking feedback, but primarily working on fixing up a lot of the issues within the game to improve performance and stability. When we are past these stages you will see a lot more of the feedback coming in to play, along with more in-depth system analysis.”

The Repopulation is Up and Running!



Welcome Home
The servers for The Repopulation are now once again up and running for anybody who already has an account, whether you are a Steam user or an old timer TR Backer. If you do not have an account and would like one, we plan to bring the Early Access purchase back online at the end of the month, depending on what issues arise and how things progress. This will be on Steam or as a stand alone.

It's important to note that this is still Early Access, the current server status is identical to how it was before the shut down and it is still in an Alpha state. This is to allow all players to play the game again and submit up-to-date bug reports.

Please be aware that we are continuing to restart the game servers every day at 4:45am EST for the time being, as was being done previously.

To start playing The Repopulation again:
If you have a Steam account: Go to The Repopulation, download the client and log in.
If you do not use Steam: Log in to https://www.heroenginegames.com/account/ with your account and get your download.
If you forgot your Hero Games password, click "Can't Login?" on the login window on the HeroEngineGames website or you can reset it here.

Everything in-game and out of game should be exactly as you left it!

The forums have also been migrated over to the new site which is currently in the process of being updated. There is information on them regarding future plans and the current state of things if you would like to get the low-down and catch up on what has been going on.

Some accounts were duplicated on the old website, if you have problems logging in, please use the ticket system or e-mail us on support@therepopulation.com . We currently have a temporary ticket system during the ongoing transition.

We also have a public Discord channel https://discord.gg/4hj8nJF if you would like to join the engaging and helpful community.

About This Game

The Repopulation was re-launched in February 2017 in the same state that it was taken down, in December 2015. The new development team is fixing and patching all elements in order to improve gameplay and reduce the amount of crashing. This has also resulted in a delay of patches, so game updates may be slow-going at first as we are doing a very large overhaul of back end systems.

The Repopulation is a science fiction sandbox MMORPG which is currently in Early Access and early alpha testing. You should only consider purchasing the Early Access for this title if you are okay with bugs, crashes, possible interruptions of service, and in some cases fluctuating features, as well as to support the development of the game and help up us build it.

The Repopulation is about player's choices in the way they play: being able to do Player vs Player or avoid it altogether, the ability to do Crafting and concentrate on it, or build your own home, having the freedom to advance your characters in a number of ways and not just through combat.

Key Features Currently Available In Early Access


  • Sandbox-driven gameplay which never forces you down a specific path.
  • Skills-based advancement with over 75 skills including combat-oriented, diplomatic, rogue, entertainment, trade skill, pet, survival, and other advanced skills.
  • Advanced trade skill systems which allow for a high degree of customization in crafted goods.
  • Players can switch between RPG Mode or Action Mode combat at any time. Action Mode controls like a shooter, but is built on top of RPG mechanics.
  • Create homes and build cities complete with vendors, props and defensive units.
  • Dynamically-generated content which will change based on how players react to the world.
  • Unique three-faction PvP system, where the third faction is allowed to set its alliances on a nation by nation basis. PvP is entirely optional with much of the world being protected from it and players being able to progress entirely without ever getting involved in PvP.
  • Advanced generated mission system provides a never-ending stream of missions which are customized for your character. They are purely optional.
  • Social-oriented features which provide bonus rewards when grouping or working together with other players.
  • Vehicle system allows you to upgrade and custom tailor your vehicles, even adding abilities such as Shielding, Mines, Turbo Boost, or Combat abilities.
  • Three different pet systems: Genetic Engineering, Taming, and Robotics.
  • Engagement system which is similar to a mutating form of Public Quests.
  • Persistent Seamless World.

Key Upcoming Features


  • DirectX 11 Support.
  • Hardcore server ruleset.
  • Re-integration of the Siege system.
  • Underground levels for player-created cities.
  • Audio improvements as we move some systems from placeholder to final.
  • Ease of use features to make the game easier to grasp for new players.
  • Host Player Created Tournaments in your cities.
  • Raid Interface.
  • Microtransaction support for cosmetic and fun items.
  • City Perks system.
  • Graphical improvements, performance optimizations, additional FX, and general polish.
  • Balance, feature refinement, bug fixes and content.
  • Engine upgrades to take advantage of the most recent versions of Hero Engine.

    Server Availability


    Being an MMORPG the only way to play the game is online. We currently provide both US and EU servers and they are available as long as there is no scheduled maintenance or unforeseen issues that do arise during development and testing. We strive to keep the servers up and running as much as possible, but, as with any MMO, patching is needed and will require the servers to be down during the process. There might be other times when the servers are undergoing maintenance and will require downtime; we will try to effectively communicate this as much as possible.

    There are no current plans for player ran servers or single player options.

    3rd Party Account


    This game requires a 3rd party account to play. A key will be given to you by Steam to activate the account so you can see the list of available servers to play. Please be sure after you purchase the game to create your account and register the key.

    A Stand-Alone client will also be available for purchase via the game’s website in the near future.

    Packages

    All package options are subject to change
    Currently we have a single package option available:

    • Silver Package - Includes Name Reservation*, 1 Repop Token**, Early Access and Access to City Council and Nation Leadership options.

    Eventually we will be opening up 2 more package options:

    • Gold Package - Includes Silver membership, a total of 2 Repop Tokens**, 1-day Head Start and Ability to become a city mayor and run a player city.
    • Platinum Package - Includes Silver and Gold membership, a total of 3 Repop Tokens**, a total of 2 days of Head Start and Ability to create a new nation.

    *Name Reservation is the ability to reserve 1 in-game character name tied to your account, across all servers.

    **Repop Tokens will be exchangeable for in-game items as a thank you for supporting us. Instead of giving specific ones at each level we will offer you tokens and you will have a choice of different options, with some costing more than 1 token. These items will be cosmetic in nature only and will not give you any additional functionality or power over other players. Examples of what you can expect are: equip-able shell items such as armor, weapons, and clothing, a special edition vehicle, and trinkets and even special buildings for your housing and nation.

    You may upgrade your package options when other packages are available.

    At some point before release the Silver, Gold and Platinum memberships will be enabled in-game and offer the following: Additional Character Slots, Inventory Slots, Bank Slots, Shared Bank Slots, Mission Slots, and Auction Slots. The exact quantity of these slots are still being determined based on usage and feedback.

    In the future we will be enabling microtransactions in-game for cosmetic and fun items.
