Elixir Studios have announced that they are working on a sequel to Republic: The Revolution, initially called Republic Dawn: The Chronicles of the Seven. Unlike the first game, Republic Dawn, is a "vast MMOG first person space game based around an embryonic society devastated by a sudden attack" in which players will be allowed to dictate the future of Mankind facing tough political, economic and military decisions.
"Teaming up with Elixir for Republic 2 is a fantastic way to start 2005. With Demis and his team's experience in creating outstanding triple-A games, Republic 2 is going to provide great gameplay and visual experiences - offering players freedom and flexibility that is unparalleled in today's MMOG marketplace", commented Toby Simpson, managing director of Nicely Crafted. "With our server technology, we're creating a world where hundreds of thousands of people will be able to take part in building a republic."
"Nicely Crafted is at the forefront of MMOG gaming technology. I'm really excited that my vision of thousands of players building a Republic together is finally going to happen", said Demis Hassabis, Elixir's creative director. "This is the perfect way for Elixir to enter the MMOG arena."
"The game, due for release in 2007, is set around a rich storyline based in a distant galaxy and will give players access to a living, breathing universe created using Nicely Crafted's proprietary AliceServer technology. Elixir will be providing their world-class graphical technology and both companies will be working on a new ground breaking Artificial Life engine."
