Fallen Earth players have an in-game event to look forward to as Valentine's Day approaches. Called "My Bloody Valentine", players have the opportunity to earn The Heartbreaker and "a new Holiday Crafting recipe that will enable you to rip out your little clone heart."
Preserve your heart and gift it to your apocalyptic valentine—your significant other will receive a special stamina regen +3 buff when equipped.
As a bonus—and as part of a live Valentine’s Day Massacre against the Redstone—the dev team will be joining you in game throughout the day as you run the mission.

Our sister site, MMORPG.com is featuring a new developer diary from the good folks at Icarus Studios. The diary takes a look at the newly overhauled starter area called Boneclaw. There are screens and more to show off what devs have accomplished so be sure to swing by to check it out!
Looking back, Boneclaw used to be insanely ugly. It was flat, empty, and gray. It was so huge that it was a pain for players to navigate. Because Boneclaw is a starter town and the basis for so many players to form their first impressions of the game, this was unacceptable.

Icarus Studios and the Fallen Earth team are inviting players to a holiday social event on Saturday, December 18th at 2 p.m. EST. Players attending will score a Yuletide beanie and will have the opportunity for a Secret Santa-type event to give needy players some much needed equipment.
t’s that time of year again in the Wasteland… we may not know the exact date of the holiday, but we’re pretty sure merry-making begins sometime soon! And this year, we’re hosting a special Holiday Social at the Depot 66 amphitheater (waypoint 4407735, 3493471) at 2 p.m. EST on Saturday, December 18. Join hosts Carlin and PixiStix for this special occasion!
All players (new and existing) are welcome to attend and all attendees will receive an in-game Yuletime Hat (otherwise known as a holiday beanie) as well as other festive goodies, such as eggnog and candy canes.
As a bonus, and for all the needy survivors out there, we’re arranging a wasteland-style “Secret Santa” during the social. If you’d like to participate, please mail items in-game to Carlin with the subject “Secret Santa” and your character name. Gifts will be passed to recipients at random at 2:45 p.m. EST, with gift and donor’s name announced in chat.
No need to RSVP (it’s the apocalypse after all), just put on your best gear and come celebrate!
P.S. Please leave weapons in your pack/vault/vehicle etc. Party crashers will be “escorted” off the premises IMMEDIATELY. Thanks!

Fallen Earth players who want to check out the new combat improvements and terrain enhancements will want to log into the public test server starting today. The latest version of Fallen Earth, v1.7.4, will be hitting the PTS after downtime to load the new version. Devs will be posting 'hot spots' on the PTS forums that they would like players to explore and give feedback on.
Terrain enhancements, combat improvements, a revamped tutorial and a ravaged Boneclaw await survivors! We’ve also made adjustments to Faction Control Points, World PvP, the AP Spent Cap and more.

High on a Wastelander's wish list for Christmas is unlimited ammo. Icarus Studios and the Fallen Earth dev team have granted players and early gift in the form of unlimited Blood Sports ammo for an indefinite period of time. Now if that isn't getting into the holiday spirit, nothing is!
Fragmeister has a revolver and his ammo counter at the top of the screen says 6/100. As he fires his weapon, the first number will decrease. Once the counter reaches 0 and Fragmeister reloads, he will again see 6/100. None of Fragmeister's original ammo has been lost.
As a reminder, weapons and armor no longer decay in Blood Sport arenas. Check out details on how to join a Blood Sport arena here!
*This does not apply to rocket launchers, grenade launchers or to weapons that you can throw (grenades, bombs, acid, etc.).
