Eris is an open world FPS, with some tower defense and RPG elements thrown in for flavor. In Eris, you are stranded on an alien planet. You’re only hope to escape is the mother ship stored in the main alien stronghold. You must capture alien towers to weaken their main stronghold, so you can break in and steal the mothership. Place defenses such as turrets to protect towers you’ve captured. Upgrade your suit with a jetpack to fly around the battlefield, or boost your armor and tank all the damage you want! Customize your character to suit your play style! Cast spells to burn, freeze, or electrocute your enemies! Take the fight online with up to 7 friends!

We finally managed to get back to work!
First thing we did was implement a cool new flying vehicle, which went surprisingly smoothly. Travis says this model is just a place holder, so expect the look of the plane to change in the future.
The plane took up most of our week, but we did manage to add a particle effect to the Drop trooper perk to give some visual feedback when it is activated.
