Neocron Patch 152 Released!

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.

Neocron Evolution 2.1 Testing Period Extended

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.

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.

SSX & GoE Down Razorgore!

Big Congrats to all of the SSX & GoE for yesterday evening, we have now downed Razorgore the Untamed, the first boss in the 40 man raid instance - Blackwing Lair.

(Once again, for all non WoW players - Blackwing Lair is the next level up from the Molten Core, hardness wise. Molten Core being the other 40man instance that we have already fully cleared.)

Awesome job!


Neocron Evolution 2.1 Released!

"We are very pleased to announce the release of Neocron Evolution 2.1 and the new website!

To celebrate the release, all expired Neocron 2 accounts have received 14 days of free play time. This allows all previous Neocron 2 players to check out the major changes like graphical improvements in the Wastelands and new weapon models, as well as the engine performance improvements. But other areas have also received improvements, like the revision of the faction system, the new zone rules, or the new quests and some new locations."

You can download Evolution 2.1 as either a full client or as a regular set of patches, you can find links to both of these download options in this thread.
