Greetings, Operatives. With this new episode, we are introducing a new phase of the game called First Connection. This is part one – Persona. In this update, we’ve revamped District Ruins and added our highly anticipated Cyber Case system, Memory Cell (MC) Shop, and paint system. We also added two new weapons to add to your arsenal. Review the patch notes below.
District Ruins – Terminal Conquest
We’ve heard our community’s feedback about wanting our maps to feel more in tune with the Ghost in the Shell universe. We’ve started with a well-loved map, one of First Assault’s oldest and most played maps of all time – welcome to the revamped District Ruins. We’ve updated the entire map to feel grittier, with more debris, graffiti, and inspiration taken from the anime series. We also made a couple of small balance changes for the Terminal B side. Dive in and let us know what you think of the new District Ruins.
Balance #1: Terminal B - These crates can no longer be climbed.
Balance #2: Between Terminal B&C - The ledge has been removed.
SMG: KA-P5W – Chambered for 6x35mm rounds, this weapon features superior penetration and reliability thank to its extended barrel.
AR: KHX-160 – This versatile assault rifle was designed to be as lightweight as possible and support ambidextrous operation.
Cyber Case & Inter Gate System
The Cyber Cases are random reward boxes that can be purchased with NX or earned through events. With hundreds of items to help customize your operative and weapons, you will be able to enhance your persona with new and never before seen cosmetics.
