This season we have moved away from the stagnant waters that plagued our previous seasons to reach more treacherous uncharted seas, and introduced a host of new features and season long gameplay loops. As the world continues to change, we are expanding the lore behind our main factions of NPCs, the Army of the Damned, the Atlanteans, and the Pathfinders. This season, players will be building Army of the Damned structures in our new Monument system. The culmination of which will be the first Wonder of Atlas, The Great Pyramid. We have introduced a whole new region-based map, and players will utilize the new Atlantean Portals to navigate the new world.

On the Horizon
Over the course of this season, we are introducing several new mechanics, structures, and endgame content that bridge the gap between our PVE and PVP communities. We are focusing on introducing more of the content PVP players will enjoy, while ensuring that every new mechanic can be used in a PVE environment. Our ship-to-ship combat mechanics are changing, and we are working tirelessly to implement the best features from the old ship system into our new modular ship system.
At the end of this season we expect to have the waters churning with another massive update featuring the Atlantean and Pathfinder factions, more map updates, and several new ships. New armors, weapons, and structures for players to decorate their bases with are in the works. We are also doing some backend work to improve the quality of our network for our official servers.
Dev Team Update
Over the last season, we brought on several enthusiastic new devs, and we have been listening and incorporating the feedback into our plans. We want to let our communities know that there is a long-term plan to fix all the outstanding issues. As always, reporting bugs to us is very important, especially the bugs that have existed for a long period of time.
Finally, we wanted to thank the community for their continued support and feedback by adding the much-requested Mech-Monkey! You can find the unique skin in-game right now!
