group news - neocron
Yesterday saw the release of Evolution 2.2, the latest update to Neocron. With the release of 2.2 everyone that has an inactive Neocron 2 game account has kindly been given 30 days of free playtime on their accounts (providing you weren't banned).
If you're interested in checking it out, you can download the new client from the official NC2 site.
More info on 2.2 and the changes can be found here. ;)
Reakktor have today released the Neocron Christmas Patch (152) bringing with it several new features along with bugfixes.
Most prominent in the patch notes are the introduction of new Sympathy missions which can be run to raise a character's sympathy with specific factions, these missions being obtainable from Tech Haven rather than the respective faction's HQ.
A fix for the problem of reloading has also been introduced (however it is stated that further adjustments to this issue are being worked on), along with the promise of a new weather effect, possibly the snow that people have been asking for for so long.
Full patch notes and discussion can be found here: Neocron Patch 152 Release Thread.
Due to the big success of Neocron Evolution 2.1 and Neocron Arcade: The N.M.E. Project, Reakktor has decided to extend the free game time for previous subscribers of the action-oriented cyberpunk MMORPG Neocron 2 by a week until December 22! All owners of a canceled Neocron 2 account may log in to Neocron 2 without reactivating the account to test the many improvements in the free Neocron Evolution 2.1 upgrade that was recently released.
Neocron Arcade, a new classic arcade shooter based on the world of Neocron, has been released!
You play as Mr Jones in the game, working for the CityAdministration, investigating reports about a strange creature that has appeared in the Wastelands.
The game takes you through places such as the newly implemented dungeon Regants Legacy and is completely free to all. Further information, screenshots, an FAQ, and download links can be found here for those interested.
