Hurtworld Leaves Early Access
Posted on December 10th, 2019 06:56 PM EST
After 6 years of development, tons of updates, plenty of challenges, a partial rewrite and over 60 million hours of playtime we are finally out of Early Access.
With this release comes a ton of bug fixes and quality of life changes and some fresh content.
Designed primarily as an anti air defence the launcher will make quick work of a Mozzy with a well aimed shot. It has some PVP viability but won't overpower better suited weapons and will require some skill to be useful.
To make things easier we added a one click deployable 1x1 base complete with totem and bed that can be crafted at the workbench to get the basic security down. From there you can extend to your hearts content with the construction hammer. To prevent top players utilizing this as a field deployable outpost whenever they get shot, you are limited to 5 of these per wipe. Use them wisely!
The other big trip up for new players is accidentally building outside their claimed ownership cell and unknowingly letting people into their base for free. To solve this we added a new cheap tier construction hammer that can only build inside a cell that has been claimed, meaning if you accidentally drift outside your cell, you'll be blocked from building.
Additionally we force starter bases and start foundations to be built away from cell boundaries to ensure the spot that you finally start your mansion will be secure.
We've also refactored the grid that construction must conform to, to squash the build meta of exploiting awkward bugs to build the most secure bases.
The last on the build cake is a new construction removal grace period where if within 5 mins you remove a construction piece, you will get the full price back (instead of the usual half) meaning you can trial and error your way around until everything locks into place without it costing half your materials on mistakes.
Its been a wild ride with plenty more to come, thanks to everyone who has stuck around for the journey with us <3
