Unlock the Sunset Rubber Duck, Orange Pinstripe Briefcase and White Sunset Suit in this brand-new Challenge Pack. Travel to Whittleton Creek, Hokkaido and Ambrose Island to complete the Cloud Nine Challenges and be rewarded with these long requested unlocks!
Christmas sweaters get a famously bad rap. Itchy? Yes. Ugly? Depends on who you ask. But these festive garments do have at least one positive quality to consider: They mask suspicious red stains very well.
Return to Holiday Hoarders on December 7th and compete this brand-new event to unlock this festive Cozy Christmas Suit.
The Hokkaido Snow Festival returns on December 21st for all players! The perfect mission to get into the Holiday Spirit! If this is your first time playing the Hokkaido Snow Festival, don’t miss your chance to unlock the Snow Festival suit!
Hungry for more Elusive Targets to complete your challenges? During the holiday season we’ll be making a whole bunch of returning Elusive Targets available for you to complete! More information coming shortly.
I expect that the Cloud 9 challenge pack will release in half an hour (1400 CET, as usual).
As for the roadmap itself. It’s good. Some of it feels like a deliberate slowdown. But it’s understandable. First for the Holidays, second because we have a one month ET.
We definitively had the Fugitive replaced by the Food Critic to allow the new players to unlock the Bangkok location suit after the disruption of the Drop. Since Hokkaido already appeared with the Surgeons.
There are still some stones unturned (The Coin, the potential Escalation, @linux_penguin Curated Contracts), so it doesn’t feel like a final. But unless IOI is being as sneaky as last time, I don’t see enough steam in the game to have a full on Year 4. I could see a final apotheoses in January to close it off, maybe followed by a run of the mile “no new content, but here are some ETs and FCs” year. We will see.
(and IOI if you are looking for ideas : I still think that a way to play the main campaign missions/targets with Freelancer mechanics and restriction with a special dossier in the office would be great)
How about next year we get a duck with a sweater with tiny 47 heads on it to match 47s also so happy about the stadia stuff being today this and Mario kart 8s new update have made today a great day for me
I wish they’d given us info on things they promised back in the Spring Roadmap like the new escalation, Featured Contracts for December, and contracts mode on Holiday Hoarders and Hokkaido Snow Festival (which seems to still be coming). Also, was it really too much for them to do The Fugitive and The Warlord as ETs this November?
Oh well, at least I can finally unlock the Stadia items! That’s a decent birthday reward!
I’ll be honest, apart the Public enemy suit, this roadmap is pretty meh to me. I’m not a fun of the Stadia stuff (I’ll still unlock them for the sake of it, but still…), but I hope the challenges will be fun at last.
Also, any mention about contract mode on Holyday Hoardes and Snow Festival? I remember those were planned for the end of the year.
