The new year is in full swing, and POPULATION: ONE, created by BigBox VR, Inc. also creators of “Smashbox Arena”, the popular VR battle royale game, is back with its first free content update of 2024: Event Series 1.
This update brings a host of new features and events to the game, promising to enhance the gaming experience for both new and veteran players.
New Weapon: The SPR
One of the most exciting additions in this update is the new weapon, the SPR. This sniper rifle is the first in POPULATION: ONE to feature a videoscope, offering players a new way to engage in combat.
The SPR is a semi-automatic weapon, meaning there’s no need to rack between shots, and it offers six shots per load.
This new weapon is expected to bring a fresh dynamic to the game’s combat system.
Updated Sandbox: Ironworks
The Sandbox point of interest on the Evolving Map has also been updated to a new community Sandbox creation, Ironworks.
Sandbox is a map creation tool in POPULATION: ONE, allowing players to create custom maps using a variety of assets.
The new Ironworks location promises to provide a new and exciting environment for players to explore and engage in combat.
Event Series 1: Core Deposit
Event Series 1 includes three unique events, each with their own rewards.
Players can earn up to 10 series stars per event to unlock series rewards.
The first event, Core Deposit, has already kicked off.
In Core Deposit, players collect red power cores found randomly around the map. These cores can be deposited at core converters around the map for increasingly rare items, all the way to the most powerful 5-star red weapons.
Collecting and depositing cores with your squad can earn you event rewards plus stars toward series rewards.
A New Era for POPULATION: ONE
Whether you’re a VR veteran or just got your first headset this holiday season, there’s never been a better time to squad up and enjoy some PvP and PvE carnage in POPULATION: ONE. With the launch of Event Series 1 and the addition of new features like the SPR and the Ironworks Sandbox, the game continues to evolve and offer fresh, exciting experiences for its players.
