We love seeing how creative our Pilots are, and we want to shine a light on some of the best from September!

Legendary Lego Builds

S15 has amazed with a new Lego build! Named ‘Osprey’, this Robot can remove its shoulders and legs like a Frontiers bot. 

Let us know your ideas for a distinctive ability for Osprey over on Discord or reach out to S15. Great work!

Development Insights

We regularly share some of the concepts and tweaks we are working on via our Discord, to give players a sneak peek into the development process. Here are a few of the things we shared in September:

Update on Robot Weathering Effects

We received some suggestions about the Robot weathering effects we shared a few weeks ago, and if were asked if they would be dynamic based on Map weather. We can confirm that is indeed the plan for this concept! 

Here's a small example of how it might look. As the battle progresses, the elements start to take effect on your Robots and build up over time.

Sound Changes

We want weapon sounds to be as distinct as possible so that players can easily identify weapons in combat just by their sound effects. Here's an example of some of the updates we’re currently working on. As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts!

Mont's New Look

We are currently redesigning the Mont Drill into a ‘press’. We believe this better corresponds to the gameplay mechanics, as it simply falls on Robots and crushes them!

As a bonus, you can also see some of the snowy Map weathering effects we are also working on in this shot.

New Concept for the Home Screen

Here's our new concept for the home screen: showing off your Hangar, Robots, Pilots (with animations), improved lighting, and camera angles.

Crash Site Concept Art

We’re excited to share the latest concept art for Crash Site. We believe it places much more emphasis on natural changes in altitude and landscape details, which greatly enhances the perception of the Robot's size.
