New Features


Stanton Racetrack Locations

Addition of next 3 racetracks into Stanton! These 3 new tracks will take players on epic racing journeys around Grim HEX – Miner’s Lament (157km at 154deg from Grim HEX), Euterpe – Icebreaker (71km at 56deg from Devlin Scrap & Salvage), and AcrCorp – The Sky Scraper (42km at 65deg from Area18 marker).


New Missions: Time Trials Racing T0

Racing time trials have finally come to the PU! Players will be able to test their skills versus set times on the newly added Racing tracks around landmarks in the PU, earning rewards based on performance and even unlocking more tracks as they progress. Players can pick up the first racing mission for the outskirts of Lorville and with enough racing prowess, get reputation to move onto the rest of the Time Trials around Stanton! This T0 implementation is focused on ground vehicle races (wheeled and GravLev) and Ships and includes reputation progression tracks. (Note for PTU: Currently after completing the Lorville racetrack Time Trial, reputation will unlock the rest of the racetracks at once. This is intended to help test them during PTU and will have normal track unlocking later on in PTU)
