Population Zero, the highly anticipated survival MMO has launched their first CBT Phase today. CBT will last until 3:00 am UTC on Monday, September 23rd. During this CBT, NDA is strictly enforced. I doubt we will see any new information being released. However, Enplex Games was gracious enough to release some public patch notes.
In this CBT Client, players can expect a new region added. The Savannah, which has added a new zone called The desert. They have also updated the battle system as well as add a warehouse to the “Hub”. The most interesting addition mentioned in the patch notes is a “Premium Account”.
“The game will have a premium account with the following benefits:
increased acquired PrP by 100%,
a 20% chance to get twice as many resources when gathering
the weight carry limit is increased by 20 kg.
the odds of an epic perk dropping are increased by 5%.
the odds of a rare perk dropping are increased by 10%.”
Now I don’t mind MMOs having a premium account feature, but the fact that they already unveiled it in CBT phase 1 says a lot. I would definitely keep my eye out for other microtransactions.
