Testers frustrated by drips and dribbles from the Project Genom team hopefully will soon have more than they can handle. The devs said that it is preparing its first big update of the game servers in a long time, although they demurred to give a date or target window for its deployment.
Part of this patch will contain more refined progression and quest reward systems as players move through the game. Project Genom works on a skill system in which points will increase the more an action occurs, such as how taking damage will increase armor points.
Another new toy in the works? A shield generator that will be essential to survival in this hostile world. The team is also working on armor and weapon node leveling trees, optimizing the existing world, and whipping up animations for female toons.
