ICARUS: Exciting Mount Improvements Added in Week 67 Update

ICARUS players who like playing the game solo will be happy with the game’s latest patch. That’s because the Week 67 update has several improvements that make mounts more useful.

One of the biggest improvements is that saddles in ICARUS now come with “G” slots that allow players to put radars, extractors, and other heavier items to be carried by their mounts. A basic saddle only has one slot but a cart has five slots, which is great if multiple items have to be hauled over long distances.

Furthermore, it now only takes players 15 minutes to tame creatures, down from 20 minutes. This is a huge quality-of-life change because the extra five minutes can be spent on more meaningful things, such as getting more resources or going to map objectives and whatnot.

The developers are also testing performance optimizations on the game’s experimental branch. If all goes well, they will implement them in the next update for ICARUS.
