Empyrion - Galactic Survival, the 3D open-world space sandbox survival adventure developed by Eleon Game Studios, got a new patch recently. Update v1.9 added new weapons and character models, as well as game improvements.

The developer brings new models for player suits in Update v1.9, including Light, Medium, Heavy, and Heavy Epic armors, as well as the Interior Suit. Players will find new body types when they start a new game as well. If they want to create a tall or heroic avatar in Empyrion - Galactic Survival, now they can.

In addition, Eleon Game Studios has scrapped the old weapon tier system because it was quite confusing. Instead, players will now see specific weapon names, each with its own unique characteristics. New weapon models have also been added to give the guns a fresh new look.

For improvements, AI factions are now more likely to attack other factions thanks to a certain change made in this update.
