This evening we hit some technical difficulties while getting ready to push the patch, so we made a tough decision, and we're going to hold it till Monday. Giving ourselves that extra time this weekend will allow us to cram even more into the update, and round things out better before it goes out. On the bright side, those who haven't had a chance to pack up all their favorite items and stick them on characters will have more time to do so in advance of the wipe. We'll be setting the timer accordingly, and if anything the patch will be even more worth the wait. Thanks for your patience and understanding guys, and stay awesome!
Hope everyone's holidays were wonderful, and that you're all as excited as we are about the new year! As you may or may not know, depending on whether you watch the countdown on the main menu screen, the next huge update is drawing near! We're very excited about this one, and so we wanted to fill you in on a few things we're working on. The headline is TIER 3!! The biomes in Edge of Space are massive, and the first two tiers of content are still being fleshed out as we go. Up till now, the gear in game has been just barely strong enough to glimpse the desert biome below, but not venture into it yet. We felt it was high time to finally unveil the mysterious 3rd biome, and let players advance that low for the first time in the game's history. It's a huge undertaking to be sure, and the first iteration will feel slimmer than the first two tiers in terms of content. That being said, once the foundations for it are there, it becomes easy to cram content in and bring the area to life. Along with the new biome, will come the new weapons and armor to accompany it, letting players stretch further along the progression chain. Here are a couple of screens of some of the new gear that awaits:
Along with all this awesomeness, we have good news and bad news. The bad news, there will be a wipe needed, due to the extensive changes to the world in this patch. The good news? As of this writing, it appears only worlds will be zapped by it, your characters look like they will survive this one. This means if you get your inventory expanded, you can stuff your most prized possessions into your inventory, and bring them with you into your brand new worlds. Should this change before patch day, we will most definitely update the community, but here's hoping our little ArkCoNauts get to live on!
On the Community side, I wanted to take a moment to thank the 160 awesome people that turned out for our day-after-Christmas live giveaway on IRC! It was a record breaking event for us in terms of attendance, and because of the awesome success, I'm happy to announce we'll be doing it again! Our next ArkCoNaut Appreciation Day (a.k.a. live giveaway event) will take place Friday, January 30th, in anticipation of the big patch. You can find our IRC channel here:
or connect with us via client at: irc.indieirc.net (http://irc.indieirc.net/) #Edgeofspace any time! We're always there to hang out, answer questions, do some gaming, and have a good time, so you can show your support for EoS and future live events by getting involved in the community. We don't bite, I promise, and Core has had all her vaccines! Stay awesome everyone, and we'll see you guys next time for ArkCo News!
