RELEASE 24

SOCIAL INTERACTION MENU

Ever met someone on Prospect Station you wanted to add as a friend or mute without juggling through different menus? Well, now you can!

Pressing the Interaction key (default F) in front of another player will bring up a big radial menu with several options for more convenience!

NEW SPECIAL EVENT

We’re currently brewing a brand new special event specifically for you all Prospectors! Without giving away anything, let’s just say you can expect a lot of chaos and tactics. Grab your best guns Prospectors, it’s gonna be hectic! Expect it Very Soon™!

WEAPON BALANCING

  • Scarab
    • Increased the stagger value. Monsters will be staggered more often by Scarab shots.
  • Maelstrom
    • Reloading speed reduced from 2.2s to 2s.
    • Increased the speed of animations – overall, the weapon will handle faster than before.
  • Basilisk
    • Increased damage from 150 to 175.

BUGFIXES

  • The infamous Bike Boost Bug should be fixed! That includes buying a new ride, losing your current vehicle and stealing an enemy’s chopper. And yes, we’re out of synonyms for motorcycles.
  • Fixed the timer for the end of match screen. Clicking the Go To Station button should also work properly.
  • Vehicles in preview mode should now appear fully on your screen.
  • Fixed a clipping issue with the Monarch Jacket cosmetic item.
  • Went through the banners and made sure the colors on the icons matched with the banners themselves.
  • Fixed an issue that would make a rather rude banner appear instead of the intended one.
  • All Prospector models should now have the proper teeth color. Brush your teeth regularly everyone!
  • Reworked the Ranked Mode Season 10 banner so the number shows properly and fully.
  • Ranked Mode Season 11 banner doesn’t show a Season 10 banner anymore. Numbers are hard.
  • Every successful evac will now be tallied in the Prospector Career stats. Before that, only the last player evacuating would be counted as a win.
  • Fixed another issue with stats regarding “Average Placement” and “Matches Played”.
  • Data Terminal VPs will now also be counted properly in the Prospector Career stats.

KNOWN ISSUES

  • There’s currently an ongoing issue when using the Dragonfly suit. Our teams are still looking into how to tackle it properly without creating any further issues. (Sorry about that, breaking something else with a quick band-aid would end up far worse.)
  • Pressing Q (default) with the new Social Interaction Menu open won’t bring up the Quick Access Menu.
  • Voice chat will not work in the lobby when using the open microphone setting. Push-to-talk will work just fine.
  • Some players might experience issues with their mods on certain weapons and suits (k28, dragonfly)
  • Some killing challenges can still be completed by using the wrong weapon. Fix coming soon.

 

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.

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!
