Reloaded Productions, the wholly-owned creative development studio for GamersFirst, announced a major update for the post apocalyptic Free2Play online sandbox game Fallen Earth. Titled Global Territory Control, the update introduces entirely new game content, updated landscapes and new player-crafted technology.
Fallen Earth: Global Territory Control will feature all new settlements and outposts throughout the world that can be conquered by each of Fallen Earth’s player factions, settlements that can be captured and grant sole property rights to the owning faction, allowing them to extract valuable resources from the territory.
In addition, the faction with the strongest territorial claim gets a passive buff improving core combat skills, Precision, Power, and Death Toll, Experience, Faction, Random AP gain, as well as harvesting and crafting speed by 5-10%.
An all new level 50+ PvP area will be introduced and will be called The Foothills. This new area will be filled with rare and valuable resources.
Last but not least, the update will introduce some brand new items and recipes that can be acquired via Death Tollsome, as well as some new player-crafted technology: Prospectors and Harvesters. Prospectors allow players to survey for resource-rich areas, while Harvesters allow players to set up a device to passively extract materials.
Beyond the addition of Global Territory Control, the 2.4 update includes numerous tweaks and improvements to the overall user experience. This includes easy-to-use combat trainers, merchant buyback, faster mounting, bulk purchasing, easily accessible skill trees, all new “junk-tech” starter weapons and more.
Marie Croall, Lead Designer at Reloaded Productions said:
“Global Territory Control finally gives our faction what they’ve always wanted – control of the canyon! We’ve been listening to all the feedback from our players and are proud to finally release GTC and change the face of the Wasteland – so join a faction and join the fight!”
As a special incentive, GamersFirst is offering gamers the Light Slugthrower Rifle. The gun is an advanced version of the all new “Junk Tech” starter rifle which features a higher damage output than its “little brother”. Players can grab the Light Slugthrower rifle by simply entering the promo code “JUNKTECH” either in-game or by clicking the Redeem Code button on the Fallen Earth Website. To access the Marketplace in-game, players can click on the $ button on the bottom of their minimap. The code expires on June 1 2012.
