Russian studio Enplex Games announces a new project – Population Zero, a science fiction online game with an open world where hundreds of players try to survive in the inhospitable world of another planet and turn it into their new home at the same time.
“Starting work on the project, we had a clear vision of the result that we want to achieve – the AAA quality of game, which combines the most pole-beaten players of this genre of mechanics with the best elements from other online games. We are striving to create a unique world that would be interesting to study and in which the game would like to “survive” with their friends. Yes, and we chose a very unusual setting for this niche – a tube fantasy of the 80s, which we loved as a child.”
About the game Population Zero
470 light years from Earth. The colony “Artemis”, carrying hundreds of thousands of space explorers, reaches the destination point – the Kepler-438b exoplanet in the constellation of Lear. The process of awakening the colonists is starting, but there is something unplanned happened – the ship’s reactor explodes, and the ark turns into a mass grave. Acting in accordance with the emergency protocol, the evacuation system starts to shoot capsules with people and modules with the most necessary equipment to survive to the surface of the planet.
Surviving colonists will have to find out what happened to the ship when entering the orbit of the planet, and to uncover many other secrets of this ancient and mysterious planet that has become for them a new home.
In the harsh conditions of an amazing and vibrant alien world, each player should go his own way of development, from primitive tools and stone-age structures, to technologies of ancient and developed civilizations. Bad weather, hunger and smart predators are just a small part of the dangers and challenges that new inhabitants of the planet will face. Do not forget about your former friends, for whom all moral laws ceased to exist and who decided to survive by killing and robbery.
