Usually when someone stops playing a game, their characters just sit on some server stored away in a closet collecting dust until they decide to come back. Xsyon, however, has taken a different and rather creative approach.

Xyson: Prelude is putting those abandoned tribal totems left by inactive players to good use by turning those once active tribes into Revenants, sophisticated AI monsters that can hunt you down and loot your corpse, and then do the same thing to all of your friends. Kind of like Xyson’s own zombie apocalypse, if the zombies only wanted your loot instead of a hefty helping of Manwich (emphasis on the man). Luckily, Revenants carry their own “scrap” armor sets that can be pried off of their rotting corpses.

If there was ever a time to try Xsyon, it’s during a zombie-style apocalypse spawned by inactive players. I wonder what happens if a player comes back and logs into where their tribe once was. That could be awkward, and messy.

The Undead Invade Xsyon!

The earth is ready to give up its dead to play right alongside survivors in the sandbox, survivalist MMORPG Xsyon: Prelude.  Breaking new ground in the sandbox genre, Xsyon has unleashed an undead horde known as the ‘Revenants’ that rise up from tribal totems abandoned by inactive players.  Formerly active tribes give way to sophisticated AI monsters that can loot your corpse and grow in power to chase down your friends as part of the current Abandonment phase.  Revenants also introduce their very own unique ‘scrap’ armor sets that can be looted off their rotting corpses. 

As a part of this leap forward for Xsyon the overall AI for various creatures has been enhanced.  Tribe totems have changed to a square format giving players more real estate to construct their fortresses and homesteads to stem the tide of the invading undead.

Come be a part of the ongoing saga of Xsyon as apocalypse survivors around Lake Tahoe seek to rebuild society struggling against the forces of nature and now the unnatural.  What other mysteries will the earth spew forth into our reality?  Only by exploring the world of Xsyon will you ever know.

Xsyon is a unique fantasy role playing sandbox MMOPRG that allows players to create their own virtual realities as they form tribes, build towns, shape landscapes, create quests and build an economy.

Notorious Games is currently taking orders for Xsyon: Prelude.
