Long time no see! We hope you had a great vacation celebrating New Year’s Eve with those you love. We hope 2021 will be a safer, healthier, and far more normal year. It was a crazy ride last year and we have no plans to slow down this year either. There are some improvements that need to be made in Vigor, however, but more on that later.
OK then. Off to the new season!
Season 7: Mercenaries
We always want to know what you like. And when we asked what you would like to see force Last time, the majority of you mentioned that you crave more military cosmetics. So we did our best to deliver more of it. We are very excited to introduce you to Mercenaries!
These Outlanders were fighting for money. Now they have come together to continue their dominance as a unit of highly qualified professionals. Their distinctive equipment are balaclavas, military gas masks, emblems on their caps and camouflage colors. They also bring new additions to your armory including the La Chiave 12 shotgun and the M60E3 machine gun. As every season, you can arm yourself with shiny new titles and boast of your skills in the lobbies.
We called it “Operation Health”!
If you scroll through this Xbox Wire post, you will likely find that there aren’t as many new features as usual. Again this is mainly thanks to you! We have decided to take action and resolve some pressing issues that some of you have brought to your attention.
The biggest problem revolved around a lack of memory. Therefore, the ladies and gentlemen of our team have dutifully worked to improve storage optimization. We assume that the various crashes and interruptions you may have experienced will improve.
Our next challenge was cards like Fiske Fabrikk. We know you missed Fiske, but we had to take it down for a short time so we could make some improvements to it. We are happy to announce that our mission was successful and that Fiske Fabrikk is back on the line!
The slight delay was also caused by a longer test duration. We wanted to make sure we were getting you the quality you deserve. While we are a passionate group of developers, we are also a relatively small team, so some promotions may take longer than you would expect from larger studios. So a big thank you to all of you for your tireless patience!
Okay, but what’s new you ask? Well, we thought it would be exciting to spice up the encounters a bit. That is why we are introducing exits to be opened. This means that some of the exits will now need to be opened before you can exit the encounter. And you can also block some exits behind you so that other Outlanders can’t get out of the car too quickly. This new detail changes the exit strategies a bit and we can’t wait to hear your feedback!
We also decided to give Shootout a little love. The team changed the selection of weapons in the crates to Shootout. While it seems like a small change, we think it’ll be a nice touch. Another weapon related thing is that you can now equip the chosen weapon with ammo in the shelter. Cool right?
Finally, there is a new threat to the mercenaries. You don’t want to see an Outlander camping in a bush for the entire game. This means that anyone who stays in one place too long runs the risk of being bombed by a mortar attack.
We’re really excited to see all the cool things we want to bring to the Outlands. Attack our social media and drop your ideas for the game. We read the discussions very carefully because we don’t want to miss any opportunity force
That’s it for now. Take care, stay strong, and we’ll see you in Outland!
