Nanite of the Living Dead (Oct. 01 - Oct. 31)

This year's Nanite of the Living Dead event runs through all of October! Spooky sights, sounds, and SpacePumpkins will make their way to Auraxis. Much of this update will land on Sept. 29, with the directive and select Halloween items beginning on Oct. 01.

  • A Shadowy Sanctuary - The Sanctuary social hub has received a seasonal makeover. Sights, sounds, and mask-wearing denizens abound.
  • Trick or Treat! - A holiday mission unlocks free Halloween masks that provide bonus experience when worn during the event!
  • Halloween Directive - Conquer the new event challenges to earn a Terrifying new title, and a deadly new camouflage pattern.
  • Squash the SpacePumpkins! - Throughout the battlefields, seek and destroy these gigantic SpacePumpkins for bonus experience and directive progress!
  • Seasonal Cosmetics - Check the Depot for seasonal cosmetics, like vehicle horns, camouflage, weaponry, and more!

  • Upon entering Sanctuary, unlock treats from various vendors, and learn more about the Nanite of the Living Dead event!
Gun Game- Uncommon Daily, Black Market

  • This mission asks players to earn kills with increasingly more challenging weapons.
New Implants

The following implants are now available in ISO-4 Recyclers and Basic/Deluxe Implant Packs.

Berserker - Exceptional Implant (MAX only)

  • You now take 20% increased damage at all times, and your health constantly regenerates at a rate of 50 per second.
Scavenger- Uncommon Implant

  • Wielded melee or sidearm kills will immediately restock 12/15/20/30/30% of your primary or secondary weapon magazines for free.
  • Rank 5: Dying will fully reload your primary and secondary weapons from reserves.
Springstep- Rare Implant

  • After reloading your weapon, you are able to jump higher and sprint 10/12/15/20/20% faster for the next 1.5 seconds. Additionally, you enter sprint almost instantly from this state. Shooting will end this effect early.
  • Rank 5: Receiving fall damage will instantly trigger Springstep.

  • The Drop Pod has been added to the vehicle loadout screen vehicle list.
  • Waypoint HUD indicators now flash to draw attention after exiting a menu screen.

  • Attacking or Defending a capture point now uses more compact visuals at the top center of the HUD.
  • When a base is uncapturable, it now always relays that information on the HUD while in proximity of the facility, and not in a vehicle.

Looking Forward

While bigger features tend to be easier to talk about, I wanted to call out our heavy emphasis on quality of life, bug fixing, and general improvements, particularly in the last few updates. Over the years a lot of the improvements you're seeing now have been on our to-do list in some form or another, and it's traditionally been a bit difficult to justify the resource spend required to work on items like these. What's changed is two-fold. One, our team continues to grow, and has been acquiring some great talent lately. And two, is that it's just been more of a goal for us this year.

This year has been committed to, in a lot of ways, shoring up what I feel has been a cracked foundation so that building atop it can be done with confidence. Ages-old bugs are getting resolved (speculative fix in for the ghost-shell reload is being reviewed right now!,) graphics are being consistently improved upon (thanks to new tech and art techniques,) and performance seems to be going the right direction as well (though this one is a constant balancing act.) With a little luck and a lot of effort, the rest of this year will be amazeballs. As something fun for the folks reading here toward the end, Test Server will be updated with a new Light Assault tool experiment once the update goes out. May never see the light of day, but it's been pretty fun to toy around with.

Thanks everyone, happy almost-almost-Halloween.

-Wrel, Lead Designer
