Hi-Rez Studios has announced that version 1.3 of Global Agenda also known as "Sandstorm" will be hitting the public test servers tonight. Preliminary patch notes for the update were also released, however, the entire patch will not be making it onto the test server at once. Instead, Hi-Rez Studios has chosen to release Sandstorm to the test servers in phases in order to focus the testing on specific facets of the update.
Basic details on Sandstorm below:
Version 1.3(A) introduces major new features and content to the game, including a new system for loot and acquiring weapons, a new token reward system, over 25 brand new weapons (each with 4 quality variations), changes to the Upgrades/Crafting system, five new maps, improvements to the user interface, and more.
