Once a player reaches level 10 he will be able to go to his designated headquarters and choose a crafting skill. The skill is broken down into four areas – researching, gathering, salvaging, and collecting.
- Researching – Finding upgrade plans
- Gathering – Collecting exobytes
- Salvaging – Can turn items into crafting materials
- Collecting – Gathering loot drops
The R&D update is available free to anyone who has the game installed.
EGM’s TAKE: Fans have been asking for a crafting system since the game first released, and now they finally have one, but how well it will work is yet to be seen.
