State of the Game - September 28th, 2017

Postby JokerUnique » Thu Sep 28, 2017 11:07 pm


There was no maintenance today, but there will be one next week to fix some bugs and issues.

This week, Community Developer Petter Mårtensson did a solo stream to quickly run through the current status of the console PTS and changes to be introduced in PTS 2, revealed some changes to the Dark Zone loot tables and lastly hinted at some upcoming in-game events during October.

Hot Topics
Update 1.8 PTS
  • Has no end-date yet
  • Remember that PTS is subject to change, nothing is 100% final, so please keep the feedback constructive.
  • PTS 1 Patch Notes

PTS Phase 2
  • Is scheduled to start next week for PC
  • Resistance and Underground will be active
  • Big Alejandro LMG will be balanced
  • Various changes to the new Classified Gear.
  • Fine tuning of the new movement system.
  • A “cash cache” with D-tech will be added to the PTS to facilitate testing of the new Optimization Station.
  • Some West Side Piers alerts will still be turned off.
  • Caches will also drop D-Tech
  • There is also a Known Issue-Thread for the PTS (check it out here) so keep an eye on that one, before you report a bug.

Console PTS
  • Is planned to start in two weeks
  • The console invites have not been sent yet – Massive will communicate when they are
  • It will start with PTS 2

Global Event 2 Assault
  • Starts October 3rd
  • There will be new masks that are also tied to the Commendations and not to the leaderboard
  • New Classified Gear Sets are Striker, Sentry and Reclaimer
  • Leaderboard now reward Classified Caches depending on your performance

Known Issues
PTS: No Healing while ADS
  • That is a bug.
  • In the future you will not be able to heal while you are firing your weapon, but it is a bug that you cannot heal at all when you are just ADS
  • It should be fixed with PTS 2 but that is not confirmed yet

Looking Forward
Changes to Dark Zone
  • All Exotics will be added to the Dark Zone loot tables
  • That should go live as soon as possible

Special Events
Finally, we have a couple of Special Events coming up in October that we hope you will enjoy – including a Halloween event! Stay tuned to future State of the Game streams for more information.
