Fallen Earth Producer Dave Haydysch today announced upcoming plans for the massively multiplayer online game (MMO) in his latest State of the Game address to the community. Haydysch highlights the arrival of new content on the Public Test System, plans for the next major patch and new items soon to hit the Rewards Store.
In this months State of the Game I wanted to share some very exciting updates coming to the PTS and give you an idea of upcoming content that the Fallen Earth team is working on.
First up is the PTS. Life on the PTS is about to become very interesting. They are excited to bring you the first iteration of combat improvements. They will be looking for all of you to head over to the PTS and join us as they work to continuously improve the combat system. As he mentioned this is the FIRST iteration—they will use your feedback to make further adjustments and improvements to the system until they feel the system is ready to go live.
Faction Control Points have also hit the PTS. This is a feature they are very much looking forward to bringing to all of you, so they ask for your help in testing this new system out as theyll.
There have been several questions raised surrounding the PTS and for those of you who are unfamiliar with the system or who may be new to the Fallen Earth family, they have NPCs in place on the PTS that will help in testing. These NPCs can give you resources such as money, high-end armor, AP and even raise your level to help you with testing. The one thing he urge you to remember on PTS is to test at ALL levels, not just the top end. It is critical that they ensure testing at all levels, as they need to see the flow of the changes at various levels and find bugs that might not crop up across all levels. Your help is always needed and appreciated in the development of the game.
Currently, the Fallen Earth team is hard at work on the next patch, which will encompass two main themes. First are additional improvements to combat! As mentioned earlier, the combat changes that you will see on the PTS this theyek are the first round. The next phase of the combat improvements will be more along the faction lines with the start of the faction revamp. This will focus on the factions and mutations systems. As they get further down the development cycle, they will share more info on what exactly that entails.
Secondly, they are continuing visual improvements to Fallen Earth. This involves a lot more than just adding new shiny to the game. These enhancements will be stheyeping changes that will improve the look and feel of the world as a whole. These improvements will coincide with our next live event. While I don’t want to spoil the upcoming event, he’ll tell you that another one of our towns will be forever changed (think Quarantine area). As always, they will be improving upon some key systems, such as the recipe system and Blood Sports, as theyll as continuing to work on bug fixes.
