Return of Hyperborea. Part 1
As early as February, we will see the return of Hyperborea and the Mentor as part of the new season in Crossout. Even at the first glance at the new parts, it’s safe to say that the engineers from the north didn’t waste any time. Today, we will start revealing to you the most interesting secrets of the upcoming novelties.
We remind you that all the new features described in the “Developer blog” are not final and may be changed before they are introduced into the game or may not make it into the game at all. This applies not only to information about possible unique features of new parts, but also to the appearance of the parts themselves.
New legendary engine
While the (so far) one-of-a-kind legendary engine is designed more for heavy builds, the novelty from Hyperborea will appeal primarily to enthusiasts of fast cars.
The new engine doesn’t give such a significant bonus to the mass limit and power like “Pegasus”, but it significantly increases the vehicle’s tonnage and gives a significant increase to the maximum speed of the mounted cabin.
When creating this engine, the engineers of Hyperborea definitely wanted to make the perfect version of the “Oppressor” engine. How successful were they? The final verdict will be up to you, survivors, but its perk already sounds promising: while the epic “Oppressor” only boosts the rotation of weapons, the new engine will increase the accuracy of weapons and their damage resistance, depending on the current speed. Those who can reach a speed of 110 km/h will receive the biggest bonus.
Legendary invisibility module
The realities of the battles in the Valley leave their mark on the northerners as well. The never-ending ambushes of raiders attacking “out of nowhere” force you to adapt in order to survive. The Hyperboreans have surpassed all existing developments: the result of their extensive research and countless vehicles destroyed by unstable modules is truly impressive. Meet a legendary invisibility module!
As we all know, the familiar “Chameleons” allow us to hide from the enemy’s eyes for a very limited amount of time. There are many cases when you lack literally a couple of seconds to take the most advantageous position for an attack or to get to the coveted cover. With the new module, you will have the opportunity to independently control its operation.
- Need to hide just for a second from homing missiles flying in your direction? No problem: activate the module, evade the rockets, disable the invisibility mode and move on. After a few seconds, the module will be ready to be used again.
- Enemies have spotted you from afar and there are no covers nearby? With a regular “Chameleon” it will be quite difficult to hide or get to them unnoticed, due to the module’s short active time. With the new module, you will have as much as 30 seconds, which you can use as you wish and get right to the opposite side of the location without any problems.
That’s right — the module will have a limited resource of operation, which will be spent as long as the effect is active. The dreams of infinite invisibility are still dreams: after the death of another brave man who dared to test the limits of the module, the Hyperboreans decided to make a compromise.
And yet, this resource can be increased at the cost of your safety and to the delight of your opponents, who like to target explosive modules. But we’ll talk about that in the next blogs. We will also discuss the weapons which can literally make one feel the cold of the vast northern lands.
