Later today Robocraft‘s biggest expansion to date ‘Epic Loot’ goes live and we plan on releasing the attached press release at 11am BST to tell the world about it. If you’ve never heard of Robocraft, it’s a free-to-play online PC game that has over 8 million players worldwide, boasts over 50,000 Positive User Reviews and allows players to build their own robotic creations and take them into battle against others online.
Summary of the update (more info in the release) with assets below:
- New Loot System: With the launch of Epic Loot players can earn item-granting Salvage Crates (Rusted, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond and Protonium) for taking part in online matches against others and in single-player against bots with number of item slots and drop rates for Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary items dependent on crate calibre. Better performance in-game equals better crates and number of items per crate is dependent on player activity. There’s also the option for players to purchase Protonium Salvage Crates for real money.
- Forge and Recycle with Robits: Users can take any cube they don’t want and recycle it into a new economy element dubbed ‘Robits’. They can then use that currency to forge new weapons, cubes or traversal options of their choosing and they can also access the Community Robot Factory (CRF) and spend Robits to acquire new robots.
- Weapon Rework: The Tech Tree has been removed from Robocraft, allowing all weapons which drop from crates to be useable by all players regardless of level. Additionally, all 31 weapons in the game have been balanced so that they are viable and valuable all the way through the skill curve.
The art and infographics for this one look absolutely gorgeous, so definitely check them out. More information about the update and Robocraft in general, can be found via robocraftgame.com.
