So Cohhcarnage spilled the beans on everything on his stream, so the Pantheon devs put out a quick teaser. The new class will be Monk, and they will be showing off the Atmosphere and Acclimation system in the next stream. https://www.facebook.com/1444194139128455/posts/1930248470523017What is the Atmosphere and Acclimation system?
There will be certain extreme environments in the game to which you’ll need your character to become acclimated. There will be six at launch: Frigid, Scorching, Toxic, Anaerobic, Pressure, and Wind Shear. Each of those extreme climates will have tiers associated with them corresponding to how punishing they will be to the player. For example, you may be able to survive in a Tier 1 environment without any acclimation, but you would certainly experience some detrimental effects like a weapon or movement speed penalty. The higher the tier the more detrimental and severe the effects would be.
**Lastly there will be no info in the next stream on an alpha or beta as they are still not ready to announce those plans.
