Meanwhile, if you missed the Friday dev stream, you’re in for a treat, as the studio teased its upcoming take on Venus, or rather, the open-world version of it. The key bit is that we’re talking about a terraformed Venus (“once an over, now a fridge”), so you won’t immediately die from heat and gas exposure (bonus!).
“Instead of level-gating based on night cycles like on Earth, winter storms instead will make areas of the map more difficult as they pass through the landscape,” DE explains. “The Orokin were terraforming Venus to be a liveable space before they fell, and now the Corpus are trying to pick up the pieces and continue their work. The liquid in the concept art above isn’t actually water, but is coolant that was used to, well, cool the planet’s surface. The floating island is actually a glacier that has formed around a golden orb placed by the Orokin that will then crash into the landscape and shatter.”
