Oi, you there! Yeah, you, you grubby Wastelander! Bored of hiking the Grand Canyon all by your lonesome? There's hope for you yet -- the Fallen Earth
team has announced that they've released companion pets into the game
ahead of schedule.
The dogs -- Wasteland Mutts -- were spotted on the test servers, yet did not make the journey to yesterday's 1.3.11 patch
. While players feared that the new pet system was being held back for more testing, apparently everything is A-OK, and the Mutts are now available at feed and fuel merchants throughout Sectors 1-3. Even better, Icarus let out the word that the pets will be cheaper than anticipated, costing players about 500 chips for a new best friend.
While the Mutts are welcome news indeed, Icarus wants us to know that Fallen Earth won't be a dogs-only club
: "Don't get too attached,"
they teased. "We hear other variants still exist in Deadfall!"
