Perpetuum dropping the subscription model!
Description
Release date: November 18, 2010
Already launched! Try Perpetuum right now for free and get more information at http://perpetuum-online.com

Perpetuum is a persistent, sandbox, single server, massively multiplayer sci-fi rpg (MMORPG). Players control huge robots and mechs on the planet Nia to gain access to the planet's resources and knowledge, to amass huge wealth or even to claim part of the game world for themselves via terraforming and building settlements with complex infrastructures to deny unwanted visitors access.

You can also find more information on Perpetuum on Facebook, or you can check out the diary Rock Paper Shotgun wrote on their experiences:
Main Features
  • 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.
  • Free Gameplay: With the recent introduction of the I.C.E. system, players are now able to trade game time in-game for in-game currency, thereby making it possible to play Perpetuum without a subscription fee.
  • 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.

Да это же типичные МЕХИ в открытом мире + русский язык заявлен, надеюсь будет не хуже остальных МЕХо-подобных игр, как выйдет, заценим.

charles, if you didnt have three months prior to today, your extra sub time was converted over to their cash shop currency and youll need to pay the difference to activate. Game is $30 for a life time account now.

@Ninu Zahra Thanks for the offer!

@yakovbaghdanov, I have too returned to the game after 2 years and it's all about the corp join. Running around solo will be boring after some time but if you are interested my corp PHM is recruiting new mech soldiers. You get access to Alpha/Beta/Gamma ops and to a team of veteran players, who are very helpful and all but elitist. and unfriendly. Just yesterday we had a newbie roam + thunderdome in assaults which was very fun. What's better was that the vets gave out free bots to all the new payers and only one left the field alive!

I am not saying you will be given free stuff all the time, but a good group of friends will greatly enhance your online experience. If interested contact me ingame on Toninu (eu tz) or Ville in game for a friendly chat. We are ready and looking forward to tomorrow's new players into our corp :)

All the games I have played that laucned via steam to attract new players, of course the games population increases at first then they figure out why this game was at its state "low population" to begin with.
Then this game wants us to drop $30 bucks to figure that out, lol. I will wait until I read the comments left by the fools who drop $30 and most of us can distinguish fanboi's from real people.
