ICARUS: Players Can Now Invite More Than Eight People in a Session in Week 54 Update

As a follow-up to the previously released Decentralization Update, developer Rocketwerkz brought some interesting changes in the Week 54 Update for ICARUS.

Players who have been clamoring for a way to invite more people to their sessions will be happy to know that the previous eight-player limit is now removed. This only applies to games played on dedicated servers, though. The company said that this was possible because of the decentralization of data, which was carried out in last week’s patch.

In addition, the Composite Dropship Recall Beacon is a brand-new grenade that, when thrown, summons a dropship to that area. This is great for extractions, though players can call the dropship early and leave it there for later. This can be crafted at the Tier 4 Crafting Bench and requires some composites, electronics, steel screws, iron ingots, and gunpowder to make.

As data decentralization in ICARUS has only recently begun, there will inevitably be some bugs that need fixing. In the Week 54 Update, the item duplication bug that happens while the player is in the station has been addressed. Furthermore, weird weather issues are less likely to occur now, especially when rejoining open-world sessions.
