check here the previous Teaser out:
We covered most of the new HWS features by now and start to look at the gameplay in HWS 8.
Immersion Boost: Death
Until now death was meaningless. Some player have 1000+ deaths and don’t care.
With all the relevant Reputation Point changes in HWS 8 this will be reflected here as well.
You lose 1 RP per death now
(was 1 RP per 10 deaths before)
I have teasered it with the implementation of the Guilty system months ago but somehow never found the opportunity to implement it.
Now, with HWS 8 it’s about time.
Golden Globe will change. The Gold crust is still available but very very thin to not lose the branding of “Golden Globe”. But except one surprise, you will find out soon, it will have ONE hotspot on the planet.
A 900 x 900 x 150 area with Red Gold. It is more valuable than the normal Gold >
It is way thicker at the top and bottom.
However you will become Guilty as soon as you fly in the Golden Greed area (see the warning top right)
Except fun this means as always:
- your position is leaked to the HWS Hunter Board in HWS Connect
- you can’t enter PvE playfields as long as you are guilty
- you can buy yourself non-guilty or ask your Hunter of choice to relieve you
Looking forward to see this in action. Will the greed win in the end?
As announced in Discord I repeat here again:
Attention: HWS EU + NA will be shut down at Tuesday after the 9AM restart. We will prepare + wait for the release until then.
Hopefully this will allow us a smooth direct start this time into Alpha 8 / HWS 8!
