Don’t miss the other HWS 6.0 teaser parts:
- HWS 6.0 | Teaser Road to Release | Reputation System & Origins | Part I
- HWS 6.0 | Teaser Road to Release | Elemental Galactic Service (EGS) | Part II
- HWS 6.0 | Teaser Road to Release | Elemental Bank (EB) & Orbital Auto Miner (OAM) | Part III
this is probably the last teaser for you guys. Not that HWS 6.0 is ready already but the release clock is ticking
So it started with a big teaser and it should end with a big teaser, right?!
HWS 6.0 Universe
As already said before: there won’t be an universe map anymore! This would take away the great new feature of exploration. (let’s call the feature “fog of war”)
How it works is that you only see your neighbor systems. There you can also see if you can jump to them or not. As always make sure you recognize the arrows / warp direction.
We will still have one way starter jumps and some other important universe changes which will be also explained in the Planet Info description. Please make sure to read it first before consider to enter that playfield.
Regarding the donator planet again the info that you have to “find” your planet. No worry, HWS is not known of 100+ systems to waste performance and PvP potential but you will find them quite quick.
Tip: follow the server theme.
One very big and new thing is the MOBA Nebula. I got a bit inspired by the meaning (Massive Online Battle Arena) cause that is what it is.
You can jump in monday till Friday and are trapped there for these five days. You can’t jump out at all. Only from Friday till Sunday you can warp out again.
Why you should lock yourself five days with crazy people? Well, high risk = righ reward! Treasures are waiting for you. Awesome locations and bonuses are waiting for you.
It is all about what you have learned till now in Empyrion to be able to survive there.
As an additional note:
- there will be 3 planets in that system
- MOBA SV
- MOBA BA
- MOBA HV
You can imagine what this means… but yes, only SVs / only BA (mostly) / only HVs are on these proper planets allowed and possible.
How the heck should you come to the only HV planet - without a CV and SV? That is your homework
All I can say again is that it is worth the risk!
Missions & PDA
This is one of the biggest and most excited stuff in 6.0 for sure. Of course this also involves couple of tests and checks for stability but if it works as expected we push every now and then more Missions along the way. Reminder: you can always send us your idea / mission and we see if we can implement it
Missions are not only simple forms of new playfields to solve resource or POI problems but even more your chance to get special items, RP, hidden zones and more.
Talking about zones and the universe… what acutally happens if a Pirate or Hunter tries to visit a “sacred” place? Will they be prepared for being guilty?
(Hopefully) all of this and more is covered with the PDA.
And especially the PDA should not something you want to ignore in 6.0. There will be couple of situations where you can’t succeed without the PDA or don’t get your reward even. And I heard you complained about Auto Miner Cores, hm?
But you know what? The best comes always at the end! And let me just show you the other things via it!
So let me present the amazing work of Achilles once again where he put 16 very important “Good to know” Goodies in one video!
That it’s it with the Teasers for pre-6.0. On the final announcement there will be some more info coming which are for now top secret.
But it is hopefully not so long anymore and believe me that it is for us a way bigger deal than for you - chillin in other games. I hope we will reach 130+ players every day again on both servers and you enjoy our work. We really do.
Thanks for your patience!
Your HWS Team
