It's not one of the largest games out there, so most people might not know what you're talking about if you mention Planet Calypso
. Those who do might well only think of the highly publicized auctions and trades
, in which players have spent large amounts of real-world money to purchase land and facilities (which bring in plenty of real-world money themselves, for the record). But beyond that there is an actual game world, complete with an ongoing storyline. As spotlighted in the newest game newsletter
, that storyline is being turned up by a new event -- an ominous approach by robots.
The last major assault by the robots left the previous capital city a smoking ruin, and not coincidentally coincided with the game's graphical update
to CryEngine 2
. This time, the colonists have begun decoding messages sent by the robots, and defenses are gathering to ensure that a repeat of the last event doesn't take place -- even as the robots field a new technology known as "Hydra." Several helpful links for information may be found within the newsletter
, which promises plenty of enjoyment for the players in Planet Calypso
