Current cloud tech is still in active development and not yet final. There’s ongoing work on SDF occlusion which should help alleviate the graphical artifacting (visual dots in the clouds). Additionally, we are working towards having local VFX for the clouds (similar to the gas clouds around rest stops) which will make a big difference in overall quality.

  • Orison Landing Zone

[PTU Feedback] Updated XenoThreat Incursion Playtest

Greetings Citizens!

We have made large improvements towards getting the updated XenoThreat ready and wanted to run them through a test with you again this weekend! This new updated Xenothreat has many changes to streamline the mission progression and many other changes!

Instructions for the Test
The playtest will occur on the PTU servers (all regions). We will start the event with Phase 1 this Friday evening and after a bit of time Phase 2 will begin. With the updated event we plan on running it from Friday until Saturday evening at some point. The updated event will automatically switch between phases and will loop after a cooldown period after players succeed or fail.

Thanks for playing and thank you for all the help!
