EVENT STORE

    • The Event section has items available for the current major event!
    • The Weekly section has new items to check out every week.
    • These items can be purchased with new currencies: Seasonal Gold and Daily Coins.
    • Seasonal Gold can be earned by playing any mission. Drop rate scales with difficulty.
    • Daily Coins are earned by completing Daily Quests

GAMEPLAY

Access Your Backpack and Storage before loading into the world!

  • Players can now view and interact with their Backpack and Storm Shield Storage via the Armory screen before entering the world!
  • Use the Backpack screen to equip weapons and recycle world items.
  • Use the Storage screen to transfer items between backpack and storage.
  • No more guessing where those quest rewards landed – new item notifications will lead you to them.
  • Crafting in the frontend backpack is coming soon!
  • You can now complete up to four Mutant Storms per day for rewards.
  • The Collection Book now offers rewards up to level 350.
  • Removed the following mission daily quests from the daily rotation (if you are already on this mission you will still be able to complete it):
    • A Little Van That Could.
    • Gate Crasher.
    • Data Retrieval.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where players could get stuck in the Save the World tutorial after playing a match of Battle Royale

HEROES

  • Raider Nomad – A new shotgun focused soldier hero. Get to level 100 in the collection book to unlock him.

Outlander Fragments

  • Outlanders now start with the ability to hold one Charge Fragment, down from two.
  • However, both TEDDY and Shock Tower now increase this Fragment capacity by one.
  • As a result Outlanders with one Fragment ability have the same capacity as before (two) while Outlanders with both TEDDY and Shock Tower can carry one extra (three).

HERO RARITY UPGRADE

  • The 2-Star Hero Evolution nodes (located in the Tier 1 skill tree page) have been updated to also include Hero Upgrades for that class. For example:
    • The ‘Unlock 2-Star Constructor Evolution’ node has now become the ‘Unlock 2-Star Constructor Evolution & Constructor Promotions’ node.
    • If you already owned one of these nodes, then you have also been granted the ability to promote that class of hero.
  • Added Tutorial Quest for upgrading a Hero’s rarity.
    • Granted after the Supply Run Quest in Stonewood has been completed.

BALANCE CHANGES

  • Rucksack soldier perk now grants two extra Frag Grenades, down from three.

Bug Fixes

  • ‘Adjustable Choke’ support bonus now properly modifies critical rate with shotguns.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the Goin’ Commando ability to scale with both Tech and Offense. It now only scales with Tech.

MISSIONS

  • Quest Items now drop from props or enemies no matter who destroys them.
  • Storm Chest duration timer now starts when the first enemy spawns, this is fairer as it sometimes takes a couple of seconds to spawn enemies.
  • Drone Salvage mission now gives 15 more seconds to reach the site and build defenses before it crashes.
  • Drone Salvage mission now gives tiered mechanical crafting ingredients in addition to its previous rewards.

Bug Fixes

  • The “Clear!” quest will now update appropriately once the Med-bot has been completed.
  • Added missing daily discovery quest updates to some parks and parking lots.
  • Fixed an issue where survivors wouldn’t spawn on Building the Relay missions.
  • Fixed an issue where The Storm Chest wouldn’t complete correctly when only one Mist Monster spawned and was eliminated.

UI

  • Characters in pregame and postgame lobbies now have a floor to stand on. No more floating!
  • New Hero View Screen where you can spin your selected hero 360 degrees.
  • Changed the text on the multi-Upgrade-Llama purchase options to clarify that the Llamas do not have a higher chance to upgrade than a normal Upgrade Llama does.

Bug Fixes

  • Stat comparisons have been updated to display Build Cost reductions as a positive rather than a negative.
  • When a crafting action fails, the crafting queue is cleared and the ingredient list is immediately refreshed to show refunded resources.
  • Fixed an issue where the remaining amount of llamas wasn’t being shown to the player on the loot tab screen.
  • The Proximity Mine node description now shows “explosion radius” instead of “detonation radius”.
  • Fixed rift icons not showing up on the main map until they appeared on the mini-map.
  • Reduced auto-scrolling of the schematics list during crafting.
  • Fixed the Goin’ Commando weapon showing up in inventory during use.

AUDIO

  • New suppressed pistol sounds.

  • Reduced number of objects updating each frame to improve performance.

GENERAL
