This just in from the E&B Gazette:
No doubt you've noticed that there is quite a bit of tension, turmoil, and intrigue taking place in the galaxy. We've set the stage for a grand, evolving storyline, which will now begin to advance. Beginning this month, you'll start to notice some changes to the galaxy and its characters, so be on the lookout for interesting developments! Remember to check your galaxy's Net-7 page often to keep up-to-date on new discoveries. What could all those Unknown aliens possibly be up to…?
This month's game update adds more than a dozen new missions to Earth & Beyond, all of which are related directly or indirectly to the ongoing storyline. And you'll be happy to hear that these missions also include the 50th level promotion missions you've been asking for!
Finally! After wearing out ten pairs of scissors cutting through a small mountain of red tape, we have finally made Buddy Registration Codes available to European players, as well as Upgrade Codes (for demo players) and Game Time codes (pre-paid 90-day subscriptions on sale for $39.99).
