As of today, this is what our current map looks like. Though, as I take a sneaky peek over the shoulder of our Art Director, I can already see that he’s transformed the map EVEN MORE! Guess I’ll have to wait for him to check in his work to see what’s been added. Can’t wait!
As you can see in the screenshot above, the walkways have been given a sweet glass treatment. This will allow you to safely cross over steep terrain, but still able to see any resources or enemies below you. I quite enjoy running through the glass tube-like walkways on the outskirts of the map. I feel like I’m in one of those crazy winding hamster tubes. Cornering enemies in here is pretty fun, however, make sure not to get caught yourself!
MOSH PIT, ANYONE?
Since our last update, the central crater area was pretty sparse. BUT NOW! It is packed with research lab equipment, military gear, space pods, etc! Several citizens will spawn in this location, forcing players to fight in close combat. Right now the citizens that are being used are the same ones from Main Street, but that will obviously change at some point. I’m thinking lab coats and astronaut suits.
SQUIDS HAVE ARRIVED!
The Squid base now actually has Squid-like equipment surrounding the area of the Moonbase that the Squids have taken over. It’s beginning to look a lot like an invasion now! I hope the humans are ready! #TeamSquid
MOON BUGGY TO MOON ROVER?
During our Alpha testing event, if you had participated, you may have noticed we were calling it the Moon Buggy. However, we’ve decided to officially call it by it’s other known name, the Moon Rover. Another thing to take note is that during our Alpha event, the model was of a military 4×4. This model actually originated from our Main Street map prototype before we decided to scale down the size of the map to what you see it as now.
WAIT…IS THAT A MECH I SEE IN THE BACKGROUND?
Why yes, yes that is a mech you see in the background of that screenshot at the Human Base. What does it mean? The world may never know…
What are your thoughts and theories?
