Robotoki has just made a U-turn with its first-person survival MMO Human Element, first announced back in May. This game was going to be free-to-play and Nexon was the publisher, but things have changed and the two companies have parted ways. Human Element is now going to be a regular game that you’ll get to buy.
Robotoki’s founder Robert Bowling told Gamasutra that this change of direction was due to the way that development progressed, and elements that would make the game the most fun were “hindered by keeping it a free-to-play experience.” As a result, the partnership with Nexon was also terminated by mutual decision.
Human Element is now scheduled to be released in November 2015 and the new publisher should be announced next December.
