Repopulation Rework; Fragmented Announced

A post on The Repopulation website says it outlines the future of this MMORPG, but it actually focuses on the announcement of a new game called Fragmented, while explaining that The Repopulation remains in offline for now, referring back to this post explaining why the alpha servers for the MMORPG were closed (thanks J.C.). Now they say that their long term solution is to port the game to the Unreal Engine, and in the meantime, the are planning a spin-off game called Fragmented, saying: "We didn’t want Repopulation fans to be sitting and waiting idly though while we frantically try to get the game ported to Unreal Engine." This is set to enter early access soon, and will be given for free to all who have purchased The Repopulation. Here's the Fragmented website, here's a trailer, and here's a bit:
We didn’t want Repopulation fans to be sitting and waiting idly though while we frantically try to get the game ported to Unreal Engine. Starting in February we will begin testing a spin off set in the Repopulation universe which we have titled: Fragmented. This product is a sci fi survival game which is similar to a more action oriented, and much trimmed down version of The Repopulation. This allowed us to not only reuse many of the same assets which we already had in place, but also makes up the reusable foundations of what will become the Unreal Engine based version of The Repopulation. We will be giving away this product for free to all owners of The Repopulation. We are happy to provide a quick teaser video of some early work on the title and look forward to providing more footage and screenshots soon.

Out of the Blue

I think I may actually watch some or all of the Pro Bowl this evening. I've never been a fan of tackle football's all-star game, as it's a very watered-down version of the game. But Eli and OBJ are starting, so it'll give me a chance to root for a couple of my boys, and I'm already missing football with just this and the Super Bowl left to go.
