Addressing balance issues from 02.04.14 Update

02.04.14 Latest Release Notes: 
TRIBES:Today we are really excited to announce "TRIBES", a new feature that allows our players to join one of 16 unique tribes and battle each other in a struggle for territory. By joining a Tribe, players will be rewarded with stronger offensive and defensive skills, larger cash and loot drops, extra space to store inventory items, and more. Tribes will fight for control of the city’s strategic vantage points, which will provide the controlling tribe greater power over enemy movements, the ability to affect market prices and alter mission objectives in their favor. 

Features in the Patch: 
Join a Tribe- Players that pledge to joining a Tribe before February 15th will earn special rewards, which include a Tribe outfit (worth five Gold) and no Tribe initiation when the feature is available at the end of the month. So head to the Safe Zone to pledge to the tribesman and prepare for Tribal warfare! 
Character Wipe- After warning for the last couple of patches, we are now resetting all characters and wiping stats. This is needed to fix previous exploits and bugs that have occurred during our early access. Game play should now become more balanced and the overall experience will be improved. All character inventory has been removed. All the gold players have purchased has been returned along with any gold included in the Believer and Chosen packages. 
Crafting- Go to the Weaponsmith in the Safe Zone and bring components of weapons and he will craft you a new weapon! The 'recipes' for different guns are revealed as you find them. Check out the new makeshift "Can Gun" made from found parts and shotgun shell. 
Nether Hunters- These cult members will give you rewards for bringing them Nether body parts that are dropped from killing creatures.

Nether is a first-person urban survival gaming experience unlike any other. Nether forces players to make quick life-saving decisions in an unforgiving environment. In this post-apocalyptic urban world, death is waiting around every corner, at the top of high-rise buildings, and in the grasp of powerful teleporting creatures known as Nethers. To navigate this high-tension environment, players must use skill and craft in order to obtain food, weapons, supplies, and other resources necessary to survive in a desolate and dangerous city. Players will need to choose whether or not to team up with others or go at it solo against the Nethers, other players, and unpredictable, treacherous world objectives. In the end, players must decide if they will Prey or Pray.

Features:

  • A vast and vertical urban/city environment, where players can access nearly all of the buildings, including multi-story skyscrapers
  • First-person perspective creates a true survival experience
  • The need to fulfill a world objective, coupled with scarce resources encourages emergent and cooperative gameplay
  • Meld of PvE (player versus environment) and PvP (player versus player)
  • Survival needs, such as hunger and stamina that players will need to maintain to live
  • A variety of dangerous enemies with different skills and behaviors
  • New weapons and items become available as players explore the game world
  • Safe zones that need to be defended from Nethers and where players can purchase, sell, trade and store items
  • Up to 64 players per game server
  • Single purchase, downloadable client allows full game access without subscription
