Post-Apocalyptic Survival MMO Pangaea: New World Seeks Funding On Kickstarter
Russian developer LVR Studio has announced that Pangaea: New World, a post-apocalyptic survival MMO shooter with both first and third person view, is now on a Kickstarter campaign for funding.
The minimum goal is set at $250K, while a few stretch goals up to $880K have also been unveiled. Pangaea: New World, according to the team, is a struggle for survival. In order to survive, the player must develop his/her character, build better weapons and equipment. The game focuses on the adventures of unexplored territories either alone or in co-op with friends.
Pangaea: New World has been inspired by games like Metro 2033, STALKER and RAGE, as expected. Here’s a list of the main features of the game:
- Dynamic quests – quests you perform can create additional quests for other players.
- A wide choice of skills and professions
- “Real” trade – market is filled with products exclusively from the hands of the players.
- Interesting anomaly system
- Smart ecosystem – complete dependence of all members of the flora and fauna from one another.
- Unique map, divided into special geozones
- Fascinating leveling of character
- Live interaction with other players
- Living World – constant migration of fauna and dependence from geozone
- Smart monsters
- Co-op up to 30 people
- PVP and PVE mode
Pangaea: New World is being developed with Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 for PC (it’s been already approved on Steam Greenlight), Mac, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (the team already has console certifications, apparently). LVR Studio also published a full roadmap, according to which Closed Alpha will begin in January 2016, Closed Beta in July 2016 and Open Beta in October 2016.
Here’s a recent alpha video of the game.
