Season 4 – Power Grab

Season 4 will run for 15 weeks and brings a new format to chapters:
Chapters are now 1 per week and feature a specific Trust each week
Each chapter has 5 new missions. Complete them to earn flux and loot matrices for that week’s Trust!
Each chapter will feature a short blurb about that week’s Trust, giving you a peek inside the world of Atlas
Challenges have been replaced with Alerts
Alerts are time-limited missions that spawn semi-randomly. Follow our social channels for news about upcoming alerts! (There will also be in-game notifications shortly before Alerts fire off)
Complete the Alert within the time limit to earn the reward
Alerts can also be passive bonuses, boosting your gains to XP, flux, etc!
The Trust theme of Season 4 means that you can earn previously missed Trust skins, as well as some completely new ones!
Season 3 participants will earn a Hyperbotics Overcon


Holo Haunt is back!

Earn Holo Haunt matrices through daily missions and Alerts
All loot matrix purchases (except the $1.99 pack) now include bonus Holo Haunt matrices on top of the normal matrices!
Collect skins for Juno, Quark, Rask, and Titus (each with 1 all-new color variation) – as well as Meridian’s brand new “Reaper” skin!
New banner emblems and a new background are also available to collect
The event runs 10/10/17 8:00am to 11/1/17 8:00am (Pacific Time)
Skins will be available for ISO purchase from 11/1/17 8:00am – 11/7/17 8:00am (Pacific Time)


Ranked

Ranked Tier Emblems and Prestige points are now distributed for Season 3. Prestige point rewards have been slightly increased
Participation emblems and overcons will be distributed later this week
Ranked will be on a short down period and there will be more news when Season 4 Ranked begins
Ranked Season 4 will introduce a 2nd ban for each team. This ban will take place after each team has made their first 2 picks. The 2nd player on each team will control this ban.


New Powerup: X-Ray Vision

All maps now have spawners for a new purple powerup: X-Ray Vision
These powerful, three-turn boosts grant the recipient a vision range increase of two squares and the ability to see over walls and through camouflage (invisible characters will not be revealed)
If an enemy has vision of you due to this buff, there will be an effect denoting that they can see you
In general, these powerups spawn around turn ten but vary slightly between maps
The goal of this power up is to give a tool against cagey comps, to counter running away near the end of the match, and also to reward controlling the center of the map since they are located in that section
We would like to hear your feedback on the new power up! Some example useful feedback items would be: how you feel both having the power up and playing against it, feedback on the spawn locations of the power ups, and also thoughts on its spawn timing


General

Master skins now have a smoky/powered-up VFX to make them more noticeable
Fixed a rare issue where Kaigin could occupy the same spot as another player after using his ultimate
Fixed an issue where Oz clones could sometimes give vision on dashes into brush
General optimizations and improvements – memory requirements should be lower for players
