Personal Digital Assistant (PDA)

The PDA remains one of the most powerful tools in the HWS Universe. From the moment you touch down and receive your first mission with valuable starting gear to grinding out RP to gain access to the best planets, you will definitely need your PDA. It’s also a convenient way to check the Guide! Hit the F1 key to bring up the PDA.

Our goal is to provide you with a compelling a story and interesting gameplay as well as complete immersion via the PDA. The Personal Digital Assistant is not just a story teller or task checker, but an integrated part of HWS gameplay. It is also a key part of the Alien Sacrifice system as well as other dynamic origin-based rewards and mission systems.

Keep your eyes on the PDA and check it often to see newly available missions!
