What’s New:

  • Private matchmaking is cross-region supported
  • Added new interactables
  • 3D Printers
  • Scrappers
  • Gold Canisters
  • Introducing 5 new Mission items
  • Monster Tooth
  • Crowbar
  • Armor Piercing Rounds
  • Sticky Bomb
  • Bandolier
  • New Gear
  • 1 Catalyst
  • 10 Gadgets
  • 9 Armors
  • Time-limited quests now unlock after Mission 2
  • Shop and Lost and Found now unlock after Mission 2
  • Missions now have a reduced amount of Areas from 3 to 2 and increased exploration opportunities.

Bug Fixes:

  • n Joint Action players will not experience an infinite loading that can occur when reconnecting to a match after a Wi-Fi disconnection. In Join Action fixed a possible desync between players during the Beetle Queen boss
    fight when having high latency
  • Gear now properly displays their stats in the Mission preview
  • Fixed an issue where losing Wi-Fi directly after tapping the Buy button in the Lost and Found could cause a softlock or an error code and skipping of the Survivor reveal.
  • Disconnecting from the network during Survivor pull will no longer cause a softlock. This change prevents players from getting stuck at the "Initializing Notifications" during the initial loading when the device is set to a future date and time, showing an error message instead.
  • The Death Mark Status effect is now properly applied when the criteria have been met.
  • Holven and Mercator Station planet completion rewards can now be claimed for Rainstorm and Monsoon difficulty.
  • Ukulele and Piggy Bank logs will now unlock after being acquired.
  • Reduced intensity of the Root effect from the Theropod Elite.
  • Fixed an issue with lighting sometimes having the wrong angles

Community Feedback:

  • Death Mark's damage was rebalanced
  • Elite mobs are now better distinguished from regular enemies as their health bar has a yellow stroke and a yellow skull
