ROKH is a multiplayer persistent open world survival game located on Mars using real data from NASA and is developed by Nvizzio Creations. Early access is coming in September so keep an eye out for it on Steam!
ROKH will have multiple servers for you to choose from so that you may jump in with your friends to start your adventure on Mars. Each world is persistent so plan accordingly and don’t be too surprised if you log in to suddenly see all your property destroyed or tampered with. The aim of the game is survival and draws inspiration from games like Ark: Survival of the Fittest and Day Z, but with its own twists.
The environment in ROKH is simply breathtaking, and with good reason. As mentioned prior, ROKH is indeed using real world data gathered by NASA to create the section you are in. The size is approximately 155 miles across and will take roughly 3 hours for players to get from one side to the other. However, that task itself is monumental as you will have to combat nature, hostile players, as well as keeping your oxygen levels in check along with other inventory.
There are massive trenches and enormous mountains for you to overcome, should you choose so keep in mind that if you decide to take the drop, chances are you won’t be getting back up without any prep. That being said, it’s not necessarily a bad thing to jump down and set up base at the foot of a mountain or even dig deeper down.
Your main priority when you first join is to build a shelter and pressurize it properly. Too little pressure, and your shelter won’t be able to sustain you. Too much pressure, and you’ll blow the roof right off and probably kill yourself. Obviously to do anything at all, you need to get materials first. Your basic kit is likely to be on the surface, similar to Minecraft where you primarily seek wood for a crafting table so that you can craft all the necessary tools. Afterwards, more precious materials and minerals can be found beneath the surface to further improve your basic living conditions. Be warned, however, that all material (including tiles for shelter) have durability and can be broken by players and natural wear and tear from the environment.
ROKH will have full modding support from the Steam Community Workshop, and we all know some fantastic results are born there. There are still plenty of edits and adaptations that are working to be implemented prior to early access so if you’re interested at all, definitely look into their kickstarter campaign. Make your voice heard to help generate potentially one of the best survival games to date which lets you live out your dream of establishing life on Mars! It is very gratifying to be able to work together with others to create a settlement on a remote planet based in a virtual world created by real data and to just live there. Of course, some people just want to watch the world burn so expect hostility at some point and fortify your defenses. If not other players, then at least the environment itself and even NPCs. How long do you think you would last?
See you next game! -DecoyEC has logged out.
