Osiris: New Dawn introduces the Engineer and Marine

    
8

Two new classes are signing up for a tour of duty in Osiris: New Dawn. The sandbox announced in a press release this week that its next patch will include the Engineer and Marine as playable options.

The Engineer uses skills such as “mechatronics” and aerodynamics to save the day, while the Marine is content to wield heavy assault weapons for front-line combat. Tomorrow’s patch is also going to add a new skill tree and a first-person perspective for players wandering around the spaceship and GAV.

While the update was originally planned for June 22nd, a delay is likely. “After a late night power outage, we came to discover that our repositiory has some type of corruption, either from the power outage or some kind of error with an update,” writes the studio this afternoon. “We’re working around the clock (without a lot of sleep!) to get this fixed, and while we are still targeting the 22nd, it’s realistically looking more like the update may be coming early next week instead.”

I’m keeping my eyes on this and Astroneers. But I’m going to wait and see what state they’re in after Early Access, or I might splurge if I can catch them on a good sale.

How many 1’s of people can you get online with this? Showing up as Not So Massively I’m guessing this game is planned to go MMO scale?

It isn’t an MMORPG and has never been, it is however a survival sandbox and I think at the moment you can have 25 people per server, whether or not they are on the same side is upto them :)

Before the engineers they were doing it the safe way. It’s when you get engineers you need to worry, because everyone knows what engineers do is…

They go in, set up these big atmosphere processors to make the air breathable. Takes decades. It’s what we call a shake-n-bake colony. – Van Leuwin, Aliens

…and then a few decades later you have to send in the Marine class to sort it all out… :)
