Along came 1.4.4 – I stopped playing Space Marine long enough to update and have a look around the latest Myffic offering.
I logged onto my DoK in IC and my first impression was that the graphics have changed – IC looked different. Maybe it was because I haven’t seen it for a while – I’ll have to look into this a bit more.
Personality Pack 3 brings along the following new pets –
Griffonling (Chaos), Imp Skeleton (Chaos), Bulldog (Order), Phoenix (Order) and Ravenspawn & Armored Mite (for both sides).
They are merely cosmetic – I like the Imp Skeleton; looks the best of the lot.
You also get more barber surgeon & trophy tokens but there are no new trophies to be had – or I couldn’t see any.
Booster Pet Pack gives us
Tzeentch Familiar (Chaos) and Drumming Bear (Order)
These give 5% buff to either Weapon Skill, Wounds, Toughness or Initiative dependant on colour chosen.
The Pay2Win noise is building.
I can’t see what all the fuss is about – we already have +3% to speed and +5% to gold pets – it’s obvious the direction that Myffic are going in.
You’ll be able to buy your way into T2 soon – no big deal.
Strangely enough though the packs are not yet available at the Origin store
despite being encouraged to “Adopt a pet today”.
We also have a chance to participate in the Wild Hunt until 28th September
How many more of these bleedin’ pets have Myffic got under the counter?
They are going to have to build an extension to the Undercroft if this goes on.
By the way – Space Marine is really really good but the relentless tide of Orks can get a bit tedious at times. Plenty of room for expanding to other races …..
Is it really a crime to run through the campaign for the first time on easy?
