Well, it’s only a week until launch, and I realised this morning that we haven’t talked much about the third mission in Shattered Planet. And I won’t spoil too much! But by this point, you will have (probably) finished The Datalog, chasing a rare species, and The Signal, tracking down a rogue SOS. The third mission, Old Blood, is marked as “Crazy Hard” difficulty in the game, just to emotionally prepare you.
For this third and final challenge, the Galactic Union tasks you with researching the tribes in the snowy region of the planet, which is quickly interrupted by unprecedented aggression. The cause of this aggression becomes the heart of a new mystery. Why are they less welcoming than in the past? What’s happened?
As I said, I won’t spoil it. But along the way, you meet all sorts of new critters (final boss not included)!
You may recognise that cutie on the right from a contest we ran a few months back. It’s called the Chompinstomp, as named by the illustrious Greg Fisher.
Anyhow, as you might expect, you’ll be needing to stock up on ways to combat Cold damage, in addition to all the usual concerns of stabbing, smashing, falling off cliffs, and so on.
Good luck out there!
