    • These Somachord Fragments must be scanned in mission order from beginning to end in order to collect them all. If you miss one in mission 3 (for example) you can replay the quest and begin your search at mission 3 instead of back at mission 1.

    • Using the right trigger on a song will toggle eligibility for autoplay.

  • Mandachord tunes now duck out other music in the Market and Star Chart.

New Player Experience changes:

After watching far too many people struggle (and reading many feedback threads) with the crafting of an Incubator Core in the ‘Howl of the Kubrow’ quest, we are making it easier!

We now give ‘Incubator Cores’ as a reward for completing the Earth > Mars Junction. Anyone who has completed Howl of the Kubrow will receive one on login automatically.
