2021-08-23T19:18:23.835Z

MAJOR CHANGES

Four new unique Residences with special abilities

Paranoid, Party, Pretentious and Modern Residences have been added. Complete special challenges to unlock them!

Survival Mode

No manual saves, a couple of dollars in your pocket, lots of enemies, and imminent death on the horizon - a pure hardcore permadeath experience.


Advanced settings for Sandbox Mode

Set things like starting money, authority aggression, starting research, and more the way you want from the start and experience the game the way you want it to be played! Other players will be able to try out your customized settings - you can share your settings with your friend by copying hash from the menu.


Global progression

Complete various challenges to unlock Bosses, Cartel Emblems, starting Regions, and new Residence types.

Known issues

  1. On some of the Windows versions (specifically if something has been done with the default Media Player) our animated intro causes the game to crash. The temporary workaround is to turn on “Skip movies” in the settings menu.

  2. Some Nvidia cards cause D3D to crash at start-up (https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/game-ready-drivers/13/256280/unreal-engine-is-exiting-due-to-d3d-device-being-l/)

  3. The main menu UI is bugged at some laptops - switching from Fullscreen to Windowed or Borderless usually fixes this.
