"At Fallen Earth
? Our events are fashionable. We have fashionable events," the latest Fallen Earth blog begins
. "How fashionable, you might ask? So fashionable that they arrive fashionably late."
When the servers go back up today with the new patch
, Fallen Earth's second anniversary live event
will be ready to go. The six factions are duking it out over New Flagstaff and looking to recruit all the clones they can in order to win the war. Players can sign up for PvP or PvE service in any of the sectors and do their part for the glory of their faction (and be awarded a nifty novelty item for their participation). The live event will occur on Wednesday, October 5th, at different times for European and North and South American players.
The patch contains a number of changes to the gathering and crafting systems in the game and also puts in place the new cosmetic appearance system. Unfortunately for the fashion-conscious, you can look at the wardrobe but not touch -- until October 12th, that is. When Fallen Earth
goes free-to-play on that date, GamersFirst
will flip on the switch for the wardrobe... and there will be much rejoicing.
