Hype Train

In the spirit of Update 29 has now been feature locked and sleigh-ted for the 11th of December. A nice, early Holiday gift.

All aboard the Hype Train! You will be getting exciting new features including:

  • Proximity voice chat – Widely anticipated and widely requested, you can now parley before you shoot.
  • Engine overheat – Long awaited stat is coming to life! We will be doing a full piece on this with Moster walking you through the design details, but this will drastically change the PVP ship meta.
  • Painting ship parts – Pimp your Flight!
  • Ciphers – Gone are the days of entirely depending on the mercy of RNG! Players can slot Ciphers into their schematics to raise certain stats at the cost of other stats
  • New metals – More variety, and retweaked older metals.
  • New recipes – More food means more BUFFS! Delicious.
  • Stack Splitting… YAS.
