Time for another one! This time we have epic stuff happening in Battle Royale with Battle Royale Madness, we have loot events for both Survival and Open World, Lounge PVP map is back in the PVP Servers section with instant reload and we are doing a discount on the 2500 GC package! Enjoy!
Oh yeah, and for those wondering we have a HUGE patch coming up with HUGE new features including an account level system, a season pass system, survival resource gathering system and A LOT more. This is all coming very soon as we are currently in the final stage of testing. Stay tuned for this!
For this weekend event we'll have it live the following period of time:
START: September 27, 2019 12:00 PM (CEST)
END: September 30, 2019 12:00 PM (CEST)
Now, let's jump into further details about this weekend's weekend event:
- Loot Event!
Since this particular time we couldn't come up that would affect both Open World and Survival at the same time, we have split this point in 2:
- Survival: We have noticed it's very hard for people to get their hands on the new "Juggernaut Armor". So, this weekend only we have made it easier to get the armor (parts). This means the "Become a Juggernaut!" contract is now more common, the Juggernaut Spikes & Head case are now a lot more common from dropping from normal Super Zombies, the Juggernaut Body piece now also drops from normal Super Zombies and chances for it on the Alien Super Zombie have been increased. Also, to juice this all up the unique Juggernaut Armor / Helmet skin now has a super small chance of being dropped by a normal super zombie. Note: We are still going to give everyone these 2 skin recipes that manages to get their hands on the ultimate versions of both the armor or the helmet, but this will be an extra way (this weekend only) to get one or two! For more information about that reward and the juggernaut armor itself please read: http://forums.fredaikis.com/index.php?/topic/8255-patch-237/
- Open World: Vehicle spawners are back! You can now get the original vehicle spawner items again but only from normal Super Zombies. Vehicle spawners are the items you can use to spawn in a vehicle.
Note: You can only use these vehicle spawners on private servers.
Now, you might wonder why add this in the official servers when you can only use this in private servers? 1) loot is global so also in private servers, we can't separate it; i guess nice to farm for the weekend. 2) we are on our way fully introducing vehicles back in the game, of course balancing here is our prioritization. We would like to see where this leads us.
- Battle Royale Madness!
For this weekend event only, we'd like to try something new in the Battle Royale game-mode. Loot has been changed completely! Just some examples: Heavy Armors, K. Style Helmets, VSS's, Snipers, Riot Shields, everything spawns! Also we have enabled double speed to make this even MORE MADNESS!
If you have any further madness related to the BR loot, please let us know as we can still add even more items to the loot tables LIVE, during the Weekend Event! Just let us know your ideas in the comments!
- Lounge PVP Map + Instant Reload
The Lounge PVP map is back in the PVP Servers section. This time we have also enabled the instant reload feature for this PVP map! This means that you won't have to reload any weapon! Enjoy!
- Xsolla Sale: 20% discount on the 2500 GC package.
This weekend only there will be a 20% discount on the 2500 GC package only through Xsolla on our website at: https://playnewz.com/buygc.php
- ROUTINE: Battle Royale Map Rotation
As always, the main and only Battle Royale map will be changed. This time we are changing over from Arizona to Arena.
Note: We change the map rotation in the Battle Royale game-mode every week due to the low(er) amount of players playing Battle Royale. If you have any suggestions, ideas or feedback please let us know at http://forums.fredaikis.com/index.php?/topic/5388-maps-battle-royale/
- SALE: Invisible Backpack Skin + Mystery Skinbox Sale
This time we are doing a big sale on the invisible backpack skins and we are doing a 20% discount on the Mystery Skinbox.
Note: This sale is a weekly one so has already started before the weekend event and will not have the same start-end times as the weekend event.
Please let us know what you think of this weekend event so that we can use that feedback in the future for new weekend events! If you have any ideas or suggestions feel free to share that as well as we might be able to use your idea for upcoming weekend events!
