The autumn has come and we are happy to meet the new season with a short weekly news post!
Sunrise, Eclipse Battleship
The third Battleship which belongs to Eclipse faction is already here! Classic eclipse design of Sunrise brings you another ship to admire and use it as an effective assault force and a part of you great fleet.
Here we will hold for a while with new ships and concentrate on another important task which deserves a beautiful huge article we will share with you later ;)
Survival mode & Loot Boxes
Just a couple tests ago Survival mode got an update which brought you many cool features, including special loot boxes. These loot boxes could appear after certain enemy waves and give you a significant amount or IGC and XP if you collect them.
Due to all the changes - extended crafting system and resources in particular, we decided to modify these boxes to let them fit actual concept better.
Now loot boxes in Survival mode, instead of IGC and XP, give you special resource - Neitherium. This resources will be automatically converted to IGC on Survival completion.
Loot boxes, just as before, appear after certain waves at a random location on the map and don't disappear until you take everything from them. To take Neitherium from loot boxes you also need a ship which has some cargo space - so, frigates won't be able to take it. To secure this resource and actually get your IGC reward, you also should do two important things: first of all, you must deliver Neitherium to your Mothership in Survival mode. If your ship with Neitherium gets destroyed until you do so, all resource drops out of the ship to the map and you need to collect it again.
Another important thing here is that you need to actually complete all waves in Survival mode to get the reward with you: if your Mothership gets destroyed, you just lose resource you collected.
This way, Survival becomes more exciting and gets a concrete goal and reason to complete it along with additional IGC and XP on completion.
Cheers to you from the Snowforged Team and thanks once again for staying with us! With hope that our happy faces will make you smile a little more this Friday ;)
