Avorion: Patch 2.2.2 Brings Some Changes to Rift

Avorion Steam

Avorion is a procedural third-person co-op space sandbox that allows you to create your own fleet and do what you want with it. You can go the peaceful route and make trades with other factions or become the villain and create a ship fully equipped with guns capable of taking enemies out easily.

Anyway, Patch 2.2.2 brings some changes to Rift. A Rift in Avorion is a dimension found in the galaxy that you can go into. You can complete missions and receive powerful hybrid subsystems in return. Speaking of which, Patch 2.2.2 adds more rift missions to the mission boards of Rift Research Centers.

Aside from that, things found on rifts are now less far apart on lower rift depths. This is probably to ensure that you get what you’re looking for faster than before.

You can read the other changes implemented in this update below:

  • Rifts: Gravity anomalies are now further away from mission targets to avoid interference
