Hey @Servicemen!

Light Cavalry, your friendly neighborhood Ombudsman here.
I just got back to my home after having evacuated due to the unprecedented Hurricane Matthew that impacted the Carribean and the Southeast United States.

I was lucky that other than some minor flooding, my home was undamaged and everything was fine. However, many people, particularly in Haiti, lost their lives, family members, their homes, and their livelihoods to this natural disaster.

2.5 is a patch that’s concentrating once again on the expansion of new playable content including:
  • A new base for the nefarious denizens of the verse called GrimHEX which is located in the Yela asteroid field. This base will function as a spawn point for players that enter Crusader with outlaw wanted level.

[From here on are details from Light Cavalry]
Thanks for catching this @Pulveris!
Most notable additions are the sabre is flyable, the Xi'an Scout is in the hangar, the physicalized EVA system, and the addition of a bounty/wanted system around crusader.


My understanding is that the bounty system is currently akin to that of Grand Theft Auto, with varying wanted levels.
