State of the Game Letter Released

State of the Game Letter Released - MMORPG.com

A new State of the Game letter for Fallen Earth has been published on the game's official forums. In the letter, the Fallen Earth team looks back on all the changes the game has experienced in the last four months since it's commercial launch last September, including the new player experience, player camps, taverns, gambling, the major graphics overhaul, and the introduction of a free trial.

The team looks ahead to the future as well, going as far ahead as three different patches:

In the first large content patch of the New Year, Version 1.3, players will explore the frontier, reactivating old GlobalTech technology as they venture into the far reaches of Kaibab Forest to an area called Deadfall Point. Housing some of the old terraforming towers, Deadfall may hold the key to pushing back the radiation zone and tracking down odd LifeNet signals coming from the wastes. The area will raise the level cap by one and extend crafting, gear, and abilities for players to discover. Additionally, the Plateau will see an influx of threatening and dangerous creatures and raiders. A new Salvager Camp between Westreach and Embry Commonwealth challenges any band of clones brave enough to face them. The wilderness of the Plateau will continue to attract new unknown dangers with future patches.

In Version 1.4, the mysteries of Deadfall Point continue to unravel in the region of Deadfall as the radiation boundaries are pushed back and new settlements emerge. Why have old LifeNet systems reactivated? Who (or what) have they produced? Players will answer these questions and more as they increase their level cap by an additional four levels (bringing the total to 50) and continue to extend crafting, gear, and abilities. Players may even be able to ride some of the mutated creatures in this area! Back in the Plateau, Central Plains and Embry Commonwealth will continue to see more deadly creatures take over the wilderness. Players will also see the addition of a deeper item decay and new overcharging system.

Version 1.5 soaks everything in blood. The Bankers capitalize on clones to turn a profit as they set up the Blood Sports league, pitting players against each other in arenas and head-to-head conflicts as they scrap for glory and chips. As players fight in Blood Sports, clans will be able to wage war on a global scale. If the PvP action isn’t enough to get your heart pumping, we are cranking up combat by evaluating animations, reactions, AI, and any area we think can improve the immersion and adrenaline during combat. Additionally, a deep Achievement system will allow players to chronicle and proudly display their feats in the apocalypse.
