The Voidspace team is thrilled to reveal that the upcoming major update to our game will be the New World update. This update will introduce a plethora of new tools and features, including editors for procedural generation and new content. We are putting a lot of effort into developing these tools, making it likely to be the largest update we have ever released. Additionally, this update will also bring a fresh new look and feel to the game, with a huge amount of new graphics and sound effects. Players can expect to see new biomes, lots of new automated defenses like ships and turrets, and a wider variety of resources. In short, the New World update will be a massive overhaul that will take the game to the next level and provide players with an even more immersive gaming experience.
One of the biggest changes that the New World update will bring is the ability to generate a game world with varying densities of content. This means that players will have to travel from one place to another in order to find certain types of things, making the game world more interesting and engaging. With the new procedural generation editors, we'll be able to create a game world that's full of surprises and challenges.
In addition to the procedural generation editors, we'll also be adding new content editors to the game. These editors will allow us to RAPIDLY generate fresh content, which is something that we know players have been asking for. Currently, the only enemies in the game are the "infected" ships, of which there are only a handful of ship types. With the new content editors, we'll be able to create new types of ships and equipment, giving players even more to explore and discover.
The new content editors will also allow us to create new types of equipment, which players will be able to collect and assemble from components found in various places. This will add even more variety and challenge to the game, as players will have to work together to overcome some of the more difficult challenges. Some of these challenges will even require players to build up a base nearby in order to facilitate a strong, coordinated attack.
The New World update will introduce changes to gameplay by allowing players to progress without relying solely on invention. However, invention will still play a crucial role in the game by providing a steady stream of technology needed to tackle new challenges. The update will also add new procedurally generated content, similar to Minecraft's "points of interest," such as dungeons, palaces, and towns, scattered throughout the game world. Players may also attempt to play without using invention by raiding automated defenses to acquire technology, thereby strengthening their abilities and preparing for the next challenge.
After the New World update, we'll be focusing squarely on the "new player experience". We want to make sure that new players have the best possible experience when they first start playing Voidspace, and we'll be working hard to make sure that the game is as accessible and user-friendly as possible.
We're really excited about the New World update, and we can't wait to see what you think of it. Keep an eye out for more updates and announcements in the coming months!
