  • Fixed an ongoing issue where players were unable to equip weapon Skins and Charms.
  • Fixed an issue that would allow players to go into negative K-Marks values. No more buying stuff on credit!

  • Fixed an issue that would duplicate your character in the station. Remember you’re unique and no one is like you out there.
  • You will now be able to talk to Emmanuel Sullivan from across the desk. He’s still trying to scrub off all those boot prints.
  • Swapping weapons should now show the proper weapon previews.
  • Vehicle skins can be equipped again.

  • You may get a notification notice twice when purchasing more than 20 Fortuna Pass levels at once.
  • The keybinding for “pinging” is not working as expected. Here’s how it currently works:
    • Single click: Ping the specified location.
    • Double click: Ping for hostiles (i.e. “We’ve got some Prospectors here).
    • Hold click: Open the comm wheel.
  • There may still be some issues regarding weapon skins. Please don’t hesitate to use the in-game report if you come across something.


Please remember:

We are still in Early Access even though Season Three has started. The game is still in development. This means that bugs and crashes are to be expected.

If you find any issues during your session, please don’t hesitate to report it using the bug reporter tool in-game.

Please also keep in mind that queue times, especially late in the night might be longer than expected due to lower player count around these times.

We hope you have fun during your time on Fortuna III and look forward to reading your feedback!
