Update 6: The SpOiled One
08/03/2022 - The free-to-play looter shooter Space Punks from the Polish game developers Flying Wild Hog invites you to explore the planet Spor with Update 6: "The SpOiled One" - with new game modes, changed respawn rules and a whole series of optimizations and bug fixes.
The latest update takes players to the dusty yet oily planet Spor, where they are invited to explore an environment full of new dangers and challenges. Fight the digital infection with three exciting Get-A-Job missions and two challenging timed events. Ride the Toxicart in "Toxic Byproducts," fill up the canister in "Need SpOil ASAP," or get chased by an orbital laser in "Moving Target!"
Respawn feature, new HUD, harder enemy modifiers, new balancing
Also, Update 6 introduces a respawn function for all modes except "The Crack". After losing all hit points, players will drop out and enter spectator mode - after a countdown, they will automatically respawn if not revived by a party member first. With each automatic respawn, the respawn timer increases, but as before, if all players are eliminated at once, the mission is failed.
In addition to these new features, there is a new HUD in all missions. Also, harder enemy modifiers that were only present in Crack's Endless Dungeon mode can now randomly affect enemies in Stopan and Bannik at higher power levels, and the game has been rebalanced in areas like crafting.
Michał Kuk, head of Flying Wild Hog's Krakow studio and game director of Space Punks, said,"We promised the community Spor, and now we've delivered! Space Punks continues to evolve into a fantastic experience for players around the world. Since the launch of the Open Beta, we've been able to take even more valuable feedback from the community and incorporate it into the development of Space Punks - a real, live game that players keep coming back to. But we have so much more we want to do in the coming months, so stay tuned for even more big updates throughout the year."
Space Punks entered open beta in April 2022 and is free to play on the Epic Games Store. Players who want to actively support and help shape the game's development can still purchase one of the Founders Packs on the Epic Games Store.
