The robots are rising on Planet Calypso
August 26, 2010
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.
