Pilots! We continue to share the latest changes that will appear on the game servers in the upcoming updates. Among them are new modes, maps, unique events and of course, new ships!

 

Pirate Chronicles

2700 years ago, the writer Ray Bradbury was born on planet Earth. His series “Martian Chronicles” strongly influenced the development of mankind's space expansion. We honour his memory and invite all pilots to take part in a special event — “Pirate Chronicles”!

 

During the event, all pilots will be able to earn a special game currency — Xenochips — for completing any missions.

 

Xenochips can be spent on special rewards during the event.

 

“Pirate Chronicles” will take place in two stages. There are 45 levels in each stage. Only the owners of a special Pass can unlock all levels. But every first and fifth level will be available to all pilots.

 

To get the reward, you need to unlock the desired stage. In order to gain access to the next reward, you need to go through all the previous stages. You can join a stage at any time when the stage is available.

 

For the successful completion of each phase, the pilots will get parts of the unique ship, the gunship “Tornado”.

 

New Gunship “Tornado”

For a long time, UMC scientists were engaged in the study of technologies from the special storage of the “Spot” object found in the system SY3176-GIII-A4 on the planetoid “Dead World”. Despite several sabotages in the laboratories, the development of the ship Tornado was completed. One of the features of the ship was the option of full remote control, with the help of technologies found on the planetoid.

 

Currently, with the support of the Outpost shipyard, UMC is ready to establish serial production of Tornado. Mercenaries will be the first to receive the new ship.

 

The special module of the ship is based on the frigate Spiral, also found in the special storage. In battle, the pilot can divide his ship into two autonomous units and while the human pilot controls one module, the second is controlled by AI.

 

The wait is almost over! Stay tuned, and see you in space!

That is probably the most basic looking ship I've ever seen. I was hoping the model we found in the files was just incomplete but man... I hope it looks more detailed up close.

Ships is plural in there, maybe there is more that hasn't been dumped into the game files months ago that we haven't seen yet?

Just really hoping we don't get stupid ship parts like all the last events. Just outright give us the ship for once lol.

 

Remember the Nyx event? That's what I'm talkin about. Show up, do the missions, get the cheesy bonuses, then finish it off with an actual whole ship at the end.

I like the parts. They enable people who miss the event to get the ship later. I just recently built a Marten that I otherwise might not have been able to get if not for the parts trade.

Yes, but why didn't you get the marten to begin with? Might it have been.... Not having enough parts?

Because I got a Hammerhead. Recons blow, give me firepower and self-sufficient repair.

 

Incidentally, are there any good base weapons for Recon? The pew-pew is just sad, missions I sleepwalk through in a Hammerhead are mathematically impossible on a Marten.

Off topic, but recons can use the scatter gun at high ranks, which is immensely powerful when used right.

Nightingale has access to the spy drone gun that's really powerful at times, and all intys can use the phase blaster or whatever (thermal gun that halves enemy regen) and the Sk'Rah. Both are fab when used right.

Recons blow? are u kidding me? xD i killed literally 20-30 Hammerhead with Marten in OS, and never died by Hammerhead.. i got Emergency Barrier 4-5 times, but Hammerhead never killed me with Marten.. in PvP without chips recons suck against frigates, so i'm not talking about it.. Anyways, use Echo Cannon on Marten, get a Mk.5 Blueprint from Cybers, and get chips.. like total: 100% crit damage increase, 50-100% crit chance, 200%+ damage increase (or bigger) and +50% firing rate.. and then Marten is perfect.. and sure, Emergency Barrier because interceptors suck without Emergency Barrier..
