Captains, the 10.08 Update is deploying Tuesday, February 18th at ~7:00 PM PST. 


The update includes support for the special event, Escape Velocity, the February Forsaken Mission, VXP weekend, and two campaigns: Pieces of Eight and Son of Poseidon. 


Reminders: 





SPECIAL EVENT: ESCAPE VELOCITY


Begins: Thursday, February 20th @ 3PM PST

Ends: Monday, February 24th @ 3PM PST


Who doesn’t love a boss fight? Bring your Riots to this T8.5 Skirmish special event and push yourself to the limit. 


This foe is unlike any other. Its torpedoes never relent, it regenerates after combat, it adapts when threatened, and it destroys without prejudice.   


It will take more than big guns and good driving to overcome. It will require bravery, teamwork, and cunning. Is this challenge too great? Is there anyone who can rise to the call? Who will be the first to topple this Scourge monstrosity?


Stay tuned for more information in the briefing on February 19th.
