A New Build is OUT - Patch 0.7.00 - Codename: The Famous and the Furtive
22 Jul | 7:00 pm

Hey Folks,

with so many of you well over the hundred hours mark in the game, it was high time for us to add the opportunity to actually win it. The first winning condition we have implemented is the Renown victory. The other two, Wealth and Knowledge will become available in the 1.0 release later this year.

No worries, though, meeting the winning condition and actually retiring with your vagrus are two separate things. Even after you are able to win the game, you can decide to continue playing and trigger the victory screen later in the associated in-game Event, essentially postponing the victory (and the game's end).

The Movement (Warning: mild spoilers in this paragraph!)

The Abolitionist faction is a secretive one that only engages a vagrus when they see a like-minded individual, so many players have never met them. Still, even the vagri who did may have felt that their reach was rather limited in the previous builds. With this release, they receive a new mechanic that allows players to unlock interactions with them in many other locations over time as they gain the trust of the faction. This spreading mechanic also serves as the means to get faction Tasks from them in those unlocked locations and even have the chance to increase their faction presence in the settlement of your choosing.

There are a number of other improvements as well, detailed in the patch notes below.

Important Note: Considering the extent of these improvements there is little to no chance that we broke nothing in the process. Assume that we did not want to make anyone's life harder. If you see something amiss, please flag it to us using the usual channels, like the inbuild reporting tool (F1 button), forums, and our Discord server.

Now let's jump into the details:

--------------------------------------------------

  • Shorter initial loading time

New Content 

  • Option to unlock Abolitionist faction locations in numerous settlements via contacting cells

  • New types of Wyrm enemies added
  • New Jhakra visual variations added
  • User Interface Improvements 
  • Companion combat area targeting perspective added

  • Occasional Oghre Tantrum crash fixed

'Is Vagrus properly balanced now?' - Nope.

'Was it a step in the right direction?' - We think so. Please let us know how you find it.

 

Coming Up Next

Crew and Settlement User Interface update and the first set of Companion loyalty questlines are inbound.

 

Stay tuned, stay alive, conquer the wasteland!
