  • The game has added Prestige Levels for those looking to get more out of the games leveling system and will contain Greek symbols to represent each prestige level.
  • A new space homeworld, Waypoint, has been added for players to party up, chat, and plan before joining into a game.
  • Game balances for teams that would be kept together in all cases has been adjusted to avoid mis-matched games in situations that should have split up teams.
  • Improved voice chat that is more stable with less connection issues
  • Push to Talk option added to voice chat so players can press on L3 to chat in game instead of automatic detection.
  • Players can now dismount while flying in a Starhawk if Vulture Jet Pack is equipped.
