For a long time now it's been completely FREE to play Neocron 2 and so we were wondering, WHERE ARE YOU?!
If you own a full Neocron 2 account you used to pay for, you can now log directly into game without the need for reactivation. Simply find your account details and hit the login button!
The reason behind this is the unfortunate demise of 10Tacle Studios AG, Reakktor Media’s former parent company. Although Reakktor are still in business and pushing forward with their new project, Black Prophecy, they have had issues with PayPal due to the collapse of 10Tacle and so have reactivated all full Neocron 2 accounts for you to enjoy at your leisure.
This situation is a limited and temporary one - although we have no idea how long it will last, having run for a number of months already! - we thought we should spread the news to allow everyone to come back and give Neocron another go. The game is in its Evolution 2.2 state so if you've not played since the Evolution 2.2 update, which involved major changes to the skill and items system - you have a lot of learning to do.
The game is still fully supported by in-game Gamemasters, via E-Mail support and still has a fully moderated Official Forum. Then of course there is us, the TechHaven Network - here to help you out with any problems, questions and resources you might need to get back into the game. To assist we have a number of great resources. A full Wiki (http://wiki.techhaven.org ) detailing the missions, areas, monsters, skills and pretty much everything you need to know about the game along with a full Item Database (http://www.techhaven.org/db/ ) listing every item in the game!

At the moment the English Server, Terra, peaks at around 8% which is roughly 80 people, that may not sound like many but Neocron has always been a small game. This e-mail is hitting roughly 2000 mail boxes so please head back to the game and login again. People get bored and wander off from time to time 'cause the population is so low' but if we get a response to thie e-mail maybe we'll all solve that problem.
Every login counts to boost that online total!
We hope to see you soon, NeoCrack brings them all back...

P.S. You can still create a new account if you want to bring new players to the game when you return. However these must be paid for using either PayByCash or Click2Pay and will continue to be billed at €5 a month until cancelled.
