Update 0.5.1



  • New Level: Queen’s Nest
    • To future-proof Titus for a major update later this year the Spyder Queen boss encounter has been moved to its own unique level
    • This includes a much improved intro cutscene and some big art updates but the most interesting parts of this change are still under the hood for now
    • Look for one final area to explore here in another future update!

  • Preproduction on Upcoming Campaign Levels
    • Planet [REDACTED] is moving steadily through its initial blockout phase
    • This Campaign Planet will feature new environmental damage systems and at least one new weapon manufacturer, Vecu Armaments (possibly more…?)
    • Planet Sentinel (already playable in Holochamber mode) has completed its Campaign blockout phase and has entered early art and dev testing!
    • This penultimate Campaign Planet will feature new enemies not yet seen in Holochamber and a major new weapon manufacturer, Olorun Defense Systems
    • (Please note that each of these planets will take several months to fully implement, test, and go live, but this last cycle’s progress represents a major milestone for Phase Four!)

Spooky Mode

  • Halloween Event is Active
    • The Nova Genesis System will be haunted for the next two weeks
    • Core gameplay is unaffected, but watch for secrets and other spooky changes



  • Juggernaut Skills and Stats Update
    • Skills
      • Based on player feedback we’ve made a major overhaul to Laser Core
      • Mobility has been greatly increased (although this will be further adjusted after player testing)
      • Damage scales with the Offensive stat and player level, but even the initial output is devastating!
      • Updated Overcharge skill Level 2 and and 3 shield regeneration delay to 0.25 seconds
      • These changes should seriously improve Juggernaut’s viability in combat
      • Share your thoughts and suggest other improvements on our Discord
