Electronic Access, Arena Commander, and Star Marine have merged under a single “Arena Commander” frontend menu. This new frontend, powered by Building Blocks, unifies the various simulation module brands and menus into a single easy to use interface.
Included in this significant refactor is a complete rewrite of Arena Commander’s lobby system, which now allows you to squad up with people directly from your friends or party list with new squad limits per game mode.
A rewrite of Arena Commander’s Spawning & Loadout Modules has the legacy code updated to modern standards.
Starting with a new spawn screen and loadout manager, this is the first part of a series of updates to how spawning & loadouts are handled in Arena Commander, laying the foundations for exciting new additions like in-game loadout customization, multicrew and spawn locations.
An exciting new initiative for Arena Commander, these Experimental Modes will rotate for a limited time throughout a patch cycle. These modes range from simple variants of existing modes to brand new modes that explore new mechanics, locations or even in-development features before they reach the Persistent Universe.
Gun Rush is a free for all elimination-based game mode where the goal is to kill other players with each of the weapons available in the mode.
On round start, all players will begin with the same gun and upon eliminating another player will cycle to the next gun in the list. The first player to score an elimination with all of the weapons in the list wins!
You and your tank battle it out for supremacy in this Nova-only free-for-all mode. Score points via eliminations and survive as long as you can!
A variant of Squadron Battle, this only-tank mode pits your team of Novas against another, scoring points via eliminations.
Single Weapon Elimination is a free for all elimination-based game mode where the goal is to kill other players with only the single allowed weapon of the gamemode. Players cannot use any other weapons and cannot customise their loadout to change it before or during the game.
This variant of Duel mode pits you against another Mirai Fury pilot in a best of three dogfighting matchup. This mode locks you into choosing the Fury, truly testing the skills of each pilot given the same loadout.
Master Modes is available as a limited time Experimental Mode in Alpha 3.20 in order to test out the upcoming changes to how ships operate in the 'verse. This model change is available in Free Flight, Duel, and the new Endless Vanduul Swarm mode.
Master Modes splits your travel through space into two distinct speed groups. SCM allows shields, weapons, and high regeneration rates for your power capacitors, but you're limited on top speed. NAV allows high speed but no shields, no weapons, and restricts capacitor regeneration. Changing between the two modes is not instantaneous.
This updated flight model is available to try on the Aegis Gladius for a limited time, so jump in and send us your feedback!
Come nose to nose with a swarm of Vanduul Scavengers, Hunters, Alphas and the 7 infamous Vanduul Primes that ravaged humanity for decades. There may never be an end to this swarm; but how long can you survive?
