Hello PC Builders,
This update lays the groundwork for further workstation customisation options by allowing you to swap the monitors used on the benches. With some cosmetic swaps in place now, we are working with partners to bring more screens, mice, keyboards etc. to the game in future updates.
Now when you reach level 30, you have the option to purchase these prestigious gold peripherals to celebrate your hard-earned experience level!
Along with new parts, this update also includes a whole host of bug fixes and some slight balance tweaks to the career mode.
Build v1.3 Highlights
To further increase workspace customization following the addition of peripherals in the last update we have now added the initial support for swapping monitors, starting with a selection of coloured DFL models to allow for some further coloured coordination to setups.
Now we have this support in place we will be working with current and new partners to widen the range of monitors available in the game in the future.

This old legacy branch will be switched off in the coming weeks.
