More About Post Apocalyptic MMORPG
The theme of post-apocalypse became especially popular in popular culture in the middle of the last century, after several bloody wars and the invention of atomic bombs. Frightened society has given rise to many incredible stories and viewpoints about the end of the world.
These ideas influenced the gaming industry too in the form of the Post Apocalyptic MMORPG.
In the Post-Apocalyptic MMORPG, all events occur after the cataclysm that led to the end of the world. The main goal of the character can be different: in some games, your purpose is to find out the causes of the apocalypse and restore the world to its former state. In other ones, you need to survive, adapt to new conditions and revive humanity on the ruins. It all depends on what kind of cataclysm the creators chose.
Settings of the Post Apocalyptic MMORPG are entirely diverse. From the oldest and most realistic problems that have troubled humankind since ancient times, for example, a worldwide flood or a meteorite fall, to the extraordinary troubles like the destruction of humans by supernatural creatures or extinction due to a terrible disease.
Usually, the most popular Post Apocalyptic MMORPG are zombie-themed games. Typically, the plot is the cliche story about the unknown virus that somehow spread beyond the laboratory walls and caused the infection of many people. Such a genre is popular among sandbox survival games. Some games choose the setting world after a nuclear war. One of the most popular RPG series, the Fallout, revolves events of the games in the universe, where the part of humanity died after a nuclear strike.
The Post Apocalyptic MMORPG could have different game mechanics, stories and concepts. The main feature, common for all games, is that the hero needs to fight for life - with various creatures controlled by AI, or with other players. Sometimes the most terrible enemies in a collapsed world are not zombies and radiation, but the people who want to steal your food and weapons.
