Roadmap Blog - March/April 2024

Posted on March 8th, 2024 01:11 PM EST
Hello Galactic Survivalists!

First off, we want to thank you for your patience over the last days and weeks while we have been working on further improvements and bug fixes!

We acknowledge that the DLC fell short of what we intended. Our aim was to offer something substantial and innovative, but in our pursuit to push boundaries, we ended up releasing an experience that was not well-polished and had technical issues. Now, we can only show you with facts that we want to make things right. Our entire team is working diligently on these step-by-step improvements.

One of the key issues was the COOP mode, which was addressed in the recently released update.

It is now not only operational again but the scenario "Rise of the Dark Faction" has also been expanded in terms of cooperative play for small groups. This means you can now play the scenario and its story campaign with several friends at the same time in a new game. Please pay attention to the new text displays and information from the game and keep in mind that it is a COOP scenario, not a full multiplayer scenario.

So, what comes next? Let’s have a quick look!

Dark Field Improvements
We're refining how the game communicates the Dark Field's impact, ensuring you have all the information you need to navigate its challenges.

New Notification Feature*
Stay alert with a feature that warns you when approaching a planet that's hard to escape due to gravitational or dark field conditions.

Handling Enhancements
Expect better handling of Dark Field Generators, Neutralizers, and Gravity Generators*, allowing for tailored gameplay strategies

Gameplay Experience
Look forward to a series of updates aimed at enriching the overall gameplay - from better shield indicators to enhanced NPC animations.

Spreading Mechanic & Alpha Field
We're broadening the Spreading-Mechanic to be usable with other NPC factions and introducing the "Alpha Field" setting, offering new layers of strategic depth.

This is, of course, just a brief summary of the things we are doing to show you that we continue to work with the utmost effort to provide you with the gaming experience you deserve and that we haven't for a minute thought of letting you, our community, down.

As you might have noticed, we have been working on fixing these issues and will continue to do so to ensure that you receive the experience we originally envisioned. We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience you may have encountered.

We hope that our upcoming fixes will provide a better experience for those who give us a second chance, as that is ultimately our goal.

Thank you for your tremendous support, and we look forward to continuing to build and improve Empyrion Galactic Survival and the Dark Faction expansion together with you!

Your Eleon Game Studios Team.
