Survival MMO on Steam gives his players a small Christmas miracle
Suitable for the festival of love, the makers from the Survival MMO Icarus (PC) have come up with something nice: all characters that are left behind on a mission or died by bugs are revived. Mango tells you about the Christmas miracle in the Steam MMO.
What is Icarus at all, and how do you play it? Icarus plays in a future in which the earth is no longer habitable. People have tried to create a second habitable earth and have failed miserably. Instead, a toxic planet Icarus was born, which although other living beings exist, which is highly dangerous for people.
Now you have to go down as a chosen on this planet to collect new rare matter. For this she lands in every game session with a ship on Icarus and have a certain time that you can spend there. The timer continues to run, even if you do not play. You must therefore return to your ship in time, otherwise you will be left behind and your character dies.
However, dying is literally taken in Icarus. The character is then no longer usable, and you have to start from scratch. All skills, talents and levels on your heroes are gone.
Developer show for Christmas grace: 64,000 heroes revived
Merry Christmas, your left-left characters were revived!, It says in the headline of the post of the Icarus makers, RocketWerkz (via Steam).
Since some players complained, RocketWerkz worked on a tool so that the lost characters can be revived, so it says in the post. They called the players to start Icarus and look at once in the character selection, whether they are not a familiar face again.
A total of 64,000 figures were revived. The developers wrote in the post that it hurts if one loses a character only because bugs ensure in the game or because server down went, while it was actually on a mission.
Furthermore, RocketWerkz takes the guilt and said that she had probably not communicated clear enough that figures are really lost forever when they were left behind on Icarus.
Should a player have further questions about the process or lost characters, the developers would be ready to talk to the affected player at all times. They added that they can not be revived specially deleted figures.
In addition, the resuscitation action is a bit unique for the persons who have lost their heroes due to bugs and other errors in Icarus. These errors should, thanks to hotfixes and patches, but now be eliminated.
That the players say to the Christmas miracle on Steam
Under the post, the players thank you for the action and appreciate them. A pair of them said that they had actually forgotten to log in and drove off the mission time. Others, in turn, had nothing of the mass revival, but celebrated this little Christmas miracle anyway. It is not self-evident.
Some posts then asked to abolish the Perma-Death completely and just lose what you reached on the respective mission.
It does not find it fair that the time of missions continues when not playing. One would be punished if you do not log into the game. That would not be the right way for a survival game, especially if you have only a few hours a week to gamble Icarus.
What about you? Did you already land on Icarus and have explored the planet? Have you ever lost a character, and he was now revived? Write us in the comments.
