'Nether' Adds Motorcycles, New Mode, Items And Tribes

A persistent-world, massively multiplayer online game based entirely in an urban setting, Nether challenges players to survive day-to-day while trying to uncover the truth behind the apocalyptic event that has changed mankind forever.

Nether forces players to make quick life-saving decisions in an unforgiving environment. 

In this post-apocalyptic urban world, death is waiting around every corner, at the top of high-rise buildings, and in the grasp of powerful teleporting creatures known as nethers. To navigate this high-tension environment, players must use skill and cunning in order to obtain food, weapons, supplies, and other resources necessary to survive in a desolate and dangerous city. Players will need to choose whether or not to team up with others or go at it solo against the nethers, other players, and unpredictable, treacherous world objectives. In the end, players must decide if they will Prey or Pray.

Nether players can now live out their own motorcycle diaries (but way tougher with apocalyptic creatures and no Che) now that the first-person urban survival game added a motorbike today. Along with a new way to get around the city ruins, Nether is launching a group system that allows survivalists to create tribes, which allows players to group chat and see teammates’ locations on the map.

Nether is also adding a new objective called “Escort Mission,” where users have to bring a heavy box with a glowing beacon to shopkeepers in Safezones. The box attracts nethers and you can’t use weapons while holding the box, so players must pair up with others to successfully complete the objective.

Lastly, Nether added a bunch of new cosmetic gear into the marketplace, including:

  • Russian Hat
  • Motocross Helmet
  • Ski mask (balaclava)
  • Baseball cap
  • Face Bandana
  • Half Mask
  • Spray Mask
