You’ve wanted it, you’ve been waiting for it and it’s finally here: the Cataclysm is upon us!

This special event will change the face of Fortuna III for the remainder of Season 1. The surface is more dangerous than ever but also strangely rewarding, in its own catastrophic ways. The ecosystem’s balance is shaken to its very core as the weather gets even rougher.

Days are shorter as storms and spikes become ever more frequent. This constant change of atmosphere is throwing pilots of balance... but at the same time, they’re feeling just that much bolder. Evac will only be possible during a storm, so prepare for some bumpy rides!

In a weird twist of fate, the biologic and geologic impact turns out to be quite a boon for intrepid Prospectors. Creature parts are much easier to collect, and the natural aggressions allow the pelted rocks and soil to unearth their rarest materials.

Finally, meteors are falling at an increased frequency, and they’re not exactly what one would expect. They look different. They have a different glow. One would say they almost feel... alien. Who knows what those new celestial bodies might contain in their very core?

One thing’s for sure: all Hell’s about to break lose, and Prospectors are more than ready to jump on this opportunity.

For easier reference, here’s a quick list of what you can expect during the event:

  • Increased spawn rate and speed of meteor showers.
  • New Alien Meteor Shards found in meteor cores. Those are used to craft Legendary weapons.
  • Better loot for monsters, including an increased drop rate for heads.
  • Largely increased spawn rate of rare mineral nodes.
  • Storms are not constant, but they are much more frequent and the days are shorter.
  • The K-Mark cost of all weapons has been dramatically reduced.
  • Evac is only available during a storm. Plan your escape accordingly.

This event will help you fill your pockets with loot and riches while allowing you to try out some of the most high-grade weapons in the game. Don’t forget that Season 2 will start with a progression wipe, so don’t hold back and enjoy these few days of lavish abundance!
