Neocron In Development

Reakktor is currently developing a 3D cyberpunk MMORPG, Neocron. Neocron is set in the 28th century, after a nuclear holocaust in the middle of the 22nd century nearly demolishes the Earth and throws humanity back to the stone age. A wandering tribe finds the ancient technonlogy of the 22nd century, and the city of Neocron is born. The city is populated by a multitude of people and is surrounded by wastelands completely devoid of life.

Neocron's battle system is handled by a fusion of First Person Shooter and normal RPG battling. Now not only do players have to raise their characters by building levels, but they will also be required to react quickly, as they would in a first person shooter.

Neocron's online capabilities will offer the same kind of gameplay, but unlike other MMORPGs, where only players of about the same level can go exploring together, players in Neocron will be able to battle with and against other players regardless of level.

Upon creating a character, players are required to choose a 'Faction.' Twelve factions are fighting for power in the world of Neocron, and the missions that the player embarks on will depend on the faction that they are part of. If the player is unsatisfied with his faction in the process of the game, he may choose to align himself with another.

Neocron is currently set for release in the second half of 2002.
