Anyone playing sZone Online?
It's pretty much STALKER Online. It's pretty cool so far, just got out of the intro town. Add me if you play, PhantomGains
It's actually pretty nice for a free FPS. I wouldn't necessarily call it an MMO though. It does have certain occupations/classes though which will benefit you in the later game such as abilties making it easier for you to develop tech with artifacts and such. IT's all PVP too so online warring factions, pretty sweet.
If you use your binos and scout people from afar and approach them as a friendly, weapons holstered, they might actually be willing to converse with you, possibly trade.
surprisingly I'm not getting dropped as soon as I entered the PVP area.
Let me explain more for anyone who may be interested.
>Released Dec 29th 2015
>STALKER UI and gameplay, entirely STALKER based
>First Person Action combat
>Extensive dialog and story elements present
>If you're not into PVP there are PVE servers in EU
You start off in the small town of Lubetch. Contained within the town is a military stockpile, which a train carrying supplies crashed near. There was said to be no survivors but somehow plenty of military recruits and foreigners have started pouring into Lubetch.
You're met by a voice on a radio, which gets you started (basic tutorial stuff) and you begin the questing. I will admit, it is a bit slow to start, but just seeing the dialog, learning the mechanics of the game, it seems like it has the potentially to be pretty immersive. Occupations, ability to obtain artifacts and research them, repairing weapons, armor, upgrading gear and weapons, they even brough back the Arena from SoC. It is almost quite literally STALKER Online and it is glorious. I am about to enter the PVP Zone now, after buying some armor. I will post my stream here if anyone is interested in seeing what this game is about before they get it.
Not sure how good Steam's broadcasting service is but there you have it.
it's very p2w. you have to pay for bases, you have to pay for fast travel, pay for higher tier guns. the company is grubby as hell. i think one of their holiday gifts last year was something along the lines of "get a random item with every 50 dollar store purchase!"
this game just came out this year, what are you on about? "bases"? I haven't seen anything about bases. Or fast traveling. Or anything like that. Maybe you're right but I have yet to see or hear of anything like that.
