Yes, players can build their own deadly battle arenas — or whatever else they want, obviously — with 29 new tier 3 building pieces designed around the venue aesthetic. Of course, there’s more than just colosseum building in this DLC; there’s also 19 new weapon skins and new weapons and armor to look forward to. What’s not coming back, however, are god powers, as the devs still feel like some exploit fixing is required before they come back.
From now until September 3rd, players can start hunting the heads of their fellow players all in the name of new bling. A new skull belt accessory is the end goal, giving players a +2% critical hit and healing chance. All players need to do is collect the head, bring it to a brazier for its sacrifice and rinse and repeat. Your faction will get a point for each head sacrificed this way, and the faction with the most heads will win.
Cheating in EVE Online? It’s not the best idea. The latest dispatch from CCP’s security team says that it banned 4385 accounts for hacking, 12446 for botting, and 5101 for RMT, just since January. “Part of our work this month was the disassembly of an entire 250+ member corporation that was pretty much entirely comprised of botters,” the studio says – that’d be Southern Race Club from Iron Crown alliance. “You are not immune to the rules. If you are botting, we will come for you.” Bye!
“Players of all stripes will love the uniqueness of Population Zero as it takes familiar features and gives them a unique touch. Whether it’s the action-based combat system, the tech trees and building systems, the PvP/PvE environment, the robust multi-disciplinary crafting system, or the unique perk system, players will find a lot to love in the game. Freedom is key in Population Zero as players land on Kepler, a single planet hosting alien species that can be examined, befriended, or fought. While there are two factions, they can be swapped out at will simply by completing quests for one or the other. The Perk System provides tons of player agency to create a unique character using the skills they want. In short, there are no rules when it comes to playing Population Zero the way you want.”
What about modding support? How will it work?
Mod support is the last thing we are doing right now, the last thing we want to release for Kingdom Come Deliverance. Right now, we are working on modding tools so that people can do their own stuff – Steam Workshop is already working, but only with the tools you can write your own quest, for example. We are thinking of a way out to cleverly release that. Unfortunately, consoles are out because they’re not supporting this – it’s not because we don’t want to, but because Microsoft and Sony haven’t agreed on anything yet, so I can tell you: PC – yes, and we’ll see about the rest, I’m not sure.
In more immediate Legends of Aria news, a new hotfix has been deployed to patch up some issues, and work continues on the player server called Legends of Ultima, which is essentially a recreation of the world of Ultima Online. If you’re the sort pining for those fjords, a look at that can be found below.
