I'll tell you about an exciting new feature we are currently working on that is scheduled for release this spring.
We are going to introduce apparel inserts, items you can put into slots in your clothing and that affect your performance on the battlefield. Imagine
- extra ammo clips that you carry in your belt
- heavy ceramic plates in your uniform that absorbs damage, but makes running slower or increases fall damage
- extra grenades in your harness, but you get fewer magazines for your primary weapon
- extra tank armor that absorbs damage but makes the tank go slower
These are some examples of what we could do, not final designs.
The inserts mainly give you better performance, but may also have drawbacks, so you’ll get to choose how you want to play your character. Fast and agile or slower but with more protection?
The number of slots available on each clothing item will vary, depending on the unlock level of the item. But you may also get more slots for your favorite uniform if you don't want to change your looks.
At the same time as doing this functional change to the game, we are also changing how the apparel menu looks, so it will be more in line with the weapons menu. See this example screenshot from our web art director Tobias Holmgren (design is not 100% final, so the end result may change a bit).
