Robots! Yes, an article about robots that is not written by Eliot! We’re talking about Perpetuum Online’s robots, of course. Back in August, Avatar Creations updated the sandbox with a wave of Syndicate robots. A second wave is due out in a patch arriving today, according to a new dev piece out this week.
“This time we’re introducing two mech-class robots: the Echelon, a combat mech, and the Daidalos, a mech-class transport,” says the studio.
The patch will also include a number of balancing tweaks for the Tyrannos, Vektor, and Locust.
“Echelon – Class: Mech specialized in firearms. The big brother of the Locust in every way, employing the same self-adjusting armor plating technology and stabilized machine guns. Syndicate generals usually like to put the Echelon where it belongs: to the forefront of intense battles.
“Daidalos – Class: Mech specialized in transportation. We call it ‘the hauler with a punch’. The Daidalos is a curious experiment in our efforts aimed to create a versatile transport robot that’s more than just a sitting duck when ambushed. Capacity-wise it fits right between the assault and heavy mech class transports, and while it’s not as tough as the Lithus, when aided by a few combat escorts it is more than capable of helping out with some damage-dealing on its own.”
