Find out more about Starhawk’s newest FREE maps and fixes included in version 1.03 after the break.
The two new maps are set in Cypress, meaning that the world will feature a new world that’s quite different from the ones that fans are familiar with. Players will see more vegetation, more trees, and some brighter colors as compared to the older maps. As well, players will be able to go into brand new pre-built structures that are exclusive to the Cypress world. The two maps are:
In Collider, players will be able to see the huge particle collider that’s the main centerpiece of the map. Again, the new maps have pre-built structures and these are perfect for those who prefer their combat in close quarters.
In Origin, players will be able to battle it out towards the center of the map where an old Rift Extractor lays destroyed. And since both maps are built like an interconnected series of islands, water is usually shallow enough that players can drive through it or build structures on.
In addition to the maps, the developers also implemented a number of changes and additions to the core gameplay including:
- Prestige Levels
- Waypoint Space Homeworld

- Revamped Voice-Chat System
