While the TEK tier gear is the main addition with this update, a number of other features have been brought to the game. The update includes four new creatures to the world and three of these seem to be aggressive carnivores. The other new creature is a form of prehistoric sheep.
In addition to the new creatures, players can also expect to see more customization features. Players now have more hairstyles, facial hair, styles and hair colors to select from. The developers has also opted to include a real-time growth system so that hair will actively grow on the player.
