HALLOWEEN EVENT

 

It’s getting spooky on Fortuna III Prospectors!

We all know what this means: it’s time for our special Halloween Event! Prospect Station and Fortuna III sure look different these days, like they’re possessed by some evil spirit. Moreover, a malicious spell has turned Brightcaps into pumpkins and eggs into cauldrons. Uncanny!
We have prepared some new ominous challenges for you as well, so try to finish them all to get you hands on exclusive, terrifying rewards!

Make sure that you equip your Pumpkin Head, it is automatically in your appearance inventory and you just need to put it on!
As we all know that Pumpkins can get bad and squashy… the head that you can wear during the time of the event will be gone after it is over. The rewards that you get from the challenges are yours to keep forever though!

The weekly challenges will last for the whole duration of the event and the rewards that you can obtain have some fancy new features – sound & VFX. That means that you have two full weeks to complete them and to grab those sweet, sweet rewards.

The Rewards:

  • A ton of season XP
  • An animated “Leafenstein” banner
  • A new “Rest in Foam” banner
  • A “Leafenstein” spray
  • A “Pumpkin” spray

SHOP

If you wanna make your guns extra spooky, you can just go ahead and grab some additional exclusive weapon charms from our shop. These can be purchased directly with K-Marks and can be bought several times, so go crazy Prospectors!

ABILITIES

  • Grenade
    • The grenade looks like a jack o’ lantern

MISC

  • Re-queue is currently disabled as we saw that it results in some matchmaking issues.

BUGFIXES

  • The chat window had some overlap issues that got fixed!
  • Weapon refire bug with the recall teleporter got fixed!
  • Prospector Challenge icons got fixed!
  • Small performance adjustments.

KNOWN ISSUES

  • Career stats are disabled due to some issues and will be enabled again when fixed.
  • Voice chat will not work in the lobby when using the open microphone setting. Push-to-talk will work just fine.
  • The voicelines will still state Brightcaps, sorry about that Prospectors.

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 a lower player count around these times.

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