A new update is now live on PTS and contains the following:
PTS Character copy is now open, from 12/19 - 1/6 (I will be unable to perform copies during the holidays).
Altras and Xellia will be organizing some PTS play sessions to get some valuable player feedback. The dev team will be providing them with a special challenger reward to players who participate!!
Winter is finally here, and its Nuclear! Nuclear Winter is a brand new in game event that will usher in the new year, with enemies that burn with Radiation! Fight off Hellbugs, Raiders, Mutants and Plaguers, who are all out to poison you with toxic radiation attacks.
Finish the daily and weekly contracts to get your weekly reward. The reward will contain a guaranteed Legendary U-238 weapon (Synergy not active yet on PTS) and an epic mod with the chance to be legendary (chance at a jackpot weapon).
A new pursuit has been added called "Imposed Half-Life". Complete this pursuit during the Nuclear Winter event to receive a special reward: 35 inventory slots and the title "Radioactive". Inventory slots will increase beyond the current cap!
Score and health scaling has been adjusted heavily for this event to make sure high scores are easily obtainable. Please login on PTS and give this event a try for feedback! We cannot make this event perfect without your feedback.
