So in terms of exciting announcements, I’ve been wondering for awhile if they might be giving us player-made escalators at some point. I’m not sure I’d really view that as exciting, but it would definitely be a major new feature addition, and lead to a large influx of “new” content for players if people really get stuck in to making their own.
The reason I think this might be in the works is because of the serious disparity between the number of activities for each location, with Paris / Sapienza having dozens of escalation missions whereas places like Hokkaido have barely a couple. I don’t believe IOI has the time to devote to filling every locale out with more escalators, so turning that over to the community would be a logical step. I’m curious if they do this whether it would take the form of a Contracts-like separate section of the menu, or if they would “curate” the best submissions to be added officially to each destination’s page.
Then again, it might not happen and we’ll get another Halloween challenge pack instead.
