When Otherland returned to Steam earlier this week, Drago promised that it would soon be accompanied by two sizable updates. Players didn’t have to wait long for the first of these, as Patch 5.5.42 dropped today.
The patch strives to bolster the game in many areas, starting with a level cap increase to 60. The update tour continues with the addition of 90 daily quests, 20 locations, 12 Mars side quests, better tutorial hints, higher enemy difficulty, an overhaul of SOMA drops, and an increase in group size in preparation for the game’s first raid.
Players looking to become part of a team can join one of Otherland’s new factions: “With this patch we are introducing the faction mechanics along with the first three factions: White Army, Red Army, and the Hackers residing in the Bad Sector area below Lambda Mall. Factions come with their own UI to track your reputation progress and we introduce associated daily quests along with it. ”
