    Across the Badlands/DLC #1 - Info Dump

    In an attempt to keep confusion and recycled topics at a minimum, I was hoping we could all join together and compile what we learn from ATB in one thread, as it's happening.

    Post *accurate* information here as you learn it, please do not add in your own speculative comments. Try to avoid double posts/posting the same content as someone else, unless of course they missed something. If you can, provide the timestamp of when the statement was made.

    See you guys at 10

    Let me know if I missed anything. I was multi-tasking.

    Dueling
    -Any other player to a duel, 1vs1
    Battles end when one player loses all his/her health, or leaves the designated dueling area. No script penalty

    Charge Weapons
    -Ranged weapons, melee.
    -Charge Snipers, Pistols, Shotguns
    -Charges modify effects/properties

    (Of course they like all the shotguns)

    Arena missions
    -New Castithan figure in charge of the Arena
    (Apparently this is the DLC storyline)
    -Underground fight arena, series of challenges, each new challenge changes the arena layout

    Castithan Blade
    -Complete Arena mission line, or find it as a loot drop
    -Takes up a main weapon slot, comes with risks timing/and may not work well on all enemies
    -Tap equals a light attack, charged is a heavy attack

    New vehicle
    - the Reaper

    Customization
    -Six voice packs
    -Stern veteran to cocky hotshot

    Volge Sieges
    Volge will be attacking key locations
    -You will recieve a notifcation, and you must get to the designated area and defend it. New tactics and strategies will need to be deployed.
    -Open World game mode
    -Quicker time equals better rewards

    Challenge Hour
    -The Winner of last week's challenge is "Back Da **** Up"
    -No challenge hour this week
    -Building a web app and facebook app, launching soon; Possibly this week
    -New variety and challenges

    Q&A

    Rynn back to the show, or any other crossover characters crossing BACK over?
    -Can't confirm names, but it will happen

    Elemental hellbugs here to stay?
    -Yes, but will not be as frequent.

    Will Cass ever appear in the show?
    -Stay tuned.

    Different physical features for Castithans?
    -Eyes are identifiers, white skin/hair is a base trait

    Episode Missions repeatable?
    -Yes (clarification later)

    New enemies?
    -Yes. Volge being introduced with Sieges, more later

    Rewind weekends
    -Video game version of reruns, limited time windows to replay episode missions

    How do you come up with the challenges for Challenge Hour
    -Simple, specific tasks. More variety in later challenges. Will accommodate for different time zones and things.
    -Stat tracking is being examined to look at more options.
    -Suggestions are welcome

    Possibility of in-game bank/auction house/player housing?
    -No promise, but it's a "top priority".

    It would have been better if Mr. Back Da **** Up won the TV contest.

    Wanted Dead or Alive, 500K Scrip, Back Da **** Up

    Not surprising the people who win these things have ridiculous names. It's almost like they do it on purpose because they KNOW they are going to win... lol
