Project Entropia has implemented a major version upgrade to their virtual world. VU 5.5 includes a completely revamped society structure, redesigned outposts, new armor and weapons, a creature update, and a new PVP zome complete with character looting. Here is what the summary at the official site has to say about the new PVP zone:
During a deep-core drilling operation, Omegaton Industries accidentally released toxic fumes in the mountains south of Echidna. This resulted in an excruciating death for all human beings in the area. Mutants and robots have dismantled the mining site, but records of the event indicate a very rich area of rare minerals, the reason Omegaton ventured out there in the first place. However, the zone is considered contaminated and normal protection levels are reduced, meaning any avatar who ventures into this zone is susceptible to looting by others. All stackable items (except ammo packs/cells, decoys, bombs/probes, and PED/PECs) are at risk when getting killed within the zone, along with non-stackable items of all types found within the zone. The trade terminals supply an anti-toxic shot that allows human to travel within the contaminated zone. The shot is in effect until the avatar is killed in the zone. If killed outside the zone, the shot still stays in effect. If an avatar is killed in the zone, he or she is instantly transported away from the zone to the last resurrection point or to Port Atlantis, if no such point exists. Even the ghosts fear the toxic area.
