News System

We have implemented a fancy news system in the game that we will start using with the next patch. Everything that is important surrounding The Cycle: Frontier will be visible after you have logged into the game. We will have to run some final tests with the feature in the live build before we can properly use it. Additional information will follow in the patch notes for 2.8.0, so stay tuned for more info and screenshots in the next update!

Fall Damage

Fall Damage Change
Gravity, everyone's arch nemesis, felt a little bit too punishing. While you still should be scared of taking damage from falling, dying because of small movement mistakes is less likely. In the image below you can find the old calculation on the left, and the new calculation on the right.


  • We have reduced the maximum amount of Prospectors on Bright Sands by 1.
  • We adjusted the rarity tiers of some weapon skins.
  • As announced on the 11th of January, we will adjust the shop prices for several countries across the world.


  • We have fixed a small issue of our maintenance mode. You will not encounter the black loading screen of doom, but rather see the proper "Server Offline" screen.
  • We have fixed the filters for repairing items, they will not appear empty any longer after filtering. 
  • Fixed a minor issue with the alignment of the Paladin Blade in the customization menu. Some players have an amazing eye for details.
  • We have fixed an Backpack Insurance exploit! Carry on Prospectors, nothing to see here.
  • The "Contracts" screen panels have stopped to overlap, as we have upgraded the terminals.
  • The number "0000" was removed from the Fortuna Pass screen.

    • Same for the "Osiris Engineer Scanner" from the mission "Race to the Bottom" 
  • We fixed the issue that made you unable to shoot your weapon after a heavy melee attack. While swinging your melee weapon can be exhausting, you will never be too tired to shoot your gun!

  • We updated the Woodcutter Camp to prevent an unintended spot from being reachable.
