Batch 17 is an always online title, meant to be shared with friends (and enemies). In addition to the old standbys of real time PVP, Coop and Sandbox mode, we're introducing a new concept of online gameplay called Invasion!
The concept of Invasion is one present in other multiplayer games, but hasn't been implemented before the way we have, where you are able to invade other worlds flagged, "Invasion Ready." You can do this at any time, whether the invaded player is online or offline, but doing so also flags your world as Invasion ready. Be prepared!
Set booby traps for invaders, collect rewards! Sack enemy strongholds! Farm EPIC Bosses in foreign worlds and level your character up faster!
Invasion mode adds a whole new dynamic to online play, and we can't wait to show you!
In Batch 17, you play as an un-named cloned soldier who wakes up amidst a violent resistance against the organization that runs the mining colony that you've been made to protect.
"Born" without any ability to speak, but with memories of your previous life, your quest for answers leads you to the resistance, where you learn that not only are you not alone in having these memories, but that there is something very strange about this remote outpost you live on.
Led by a shadowy leader who seems to have a vested interest in you, fight through a variety of levels and environments to piece together the mystery of who you are, and the significance of the 17th batch of clones.
In Batch 17 there are no experience points. All your power derives from the loot you acquire and how you build your characters skill trees.
Skill points drop from Mini Bosses, Major Bosses, and Epic Mobs, as well as world spawned AI. These skill points are redeemed for increased power in a particular skill branch.
Each upgrade promises unique PVE and PVE Opportunities.
There are currently 6 active skills, and three passive specialization paths.
The following skills are available on day one:
