Home » Star Citizen Game Review: 3.21 PTU & Orison Missions Update

Introduction

Hey there, spacefarers! I’ve been exploring the 3.21 PTU, and let me tell you, it’s like a whole new universe out there. The Orison missions, the replication layer, and a bunch of other tweaks have me more excited than a kid in a candy store. So, buckle up, because we’re about to go deep into the 3.21 PTU & Orison Missions.


Orison Missions: More Than Just Eye Candy

So, I haven’t had the chance to dive into the new Orison missions yet, but I did check out the platforms. They’re not just floating pieces of metal; these things are intricate and detailed. I can already see how they’ll be the perfect setting for the Repel Raid on Orison missions. The platforms have multiple buildings, and the word on the street is that you’ll have to clear them out, room by room, in some missions. And get this, you even have to pass a Security Work Assessment to get these missions. Talk about immersive!


More Missions, More Challenges

But let’s not forget the revamped Bounty, Assassinate, and Clear All missions. These bad boys are also utilizing the new Orison platforms. Imagine this: you’re tasked with taking down a high-value target, and you’ve got to navigate through these intricate platforms to get to them. The stakes are high, the challenges are real, and the rewards? Well, they’re just the cherry on top.


The Nitty-Gritty Details

  • Wheeled Vehicle Handling: The ground vehicles feel more distinct now. It’s like driving a brand-new car every time you switch vehicles.
  • AI Ship Difficulty: The AI ships have been diversified, and they’re smarter than ever. You’ll find yourself in dogfights that will test your mettle.
  • Server Crash Recovery: This one’s a lifesaver. If the server crashes, you’ll respawn at your last hailed location. No more waking up in random places.
  • Anti Combat Logging: Adds a layer of realism. If you log out during combat, your ship stays in the game for a bit, making your actions have real consequences.

Final Thoughts

If you haven’t ventured into the 3.21 PTU yet, you’re missing out big time. The Orison missions are set to be a game-changer, and the replication layer is more than just a performance boost; it’s a glimpse into the future of Star Citizen. So, what are you waiting for? Dive in and experience it for yourself!
