Space Punks has received its third early access content patch today. As the name implies, “The Friendly One” will make it easier for players to play together by improving the party system and overhauling the social UI of the game.
Following on from mechanics focused “The Crafty One” and “The Talented One” updates, “The Friendly One” is primarily focused on back-end improvements for Space Punks, with technical overhauls to systems designed to make the player experience smoother. The patch upgrades the system behind parties, making it easier to join, stay in, leave and rejoin as well as simplifying inviting players you have previously grouped with to your hub world of Devil’s Gambit.
There are also more player-facing updates coming, with an entirely new in-game social UI which will make enjoying the back-end improvements that much easier. Improvements are also coming to contracts and Space Punks’ daily and weekly challenges to make the whole system more user-friendly. These include changes like being able to check challenge progress in missions, pop-ups to track progress, and better indicators of when you’ve ticked something off your to-do list. The patch also includes numerous balance tweaks and bug fixes.
