Today I’m going to talk to you about perks. That is to say, the joys and rewards of working for someone else. You see being a taxi driver is nice and all, but while the pay is good and your options at the local stores are numerous there are some things only available to those with the right connections.
As Zack begins to work for the various factions around the city he will be rewarded for his service. Sometimes this will be just an ordinary cash reward, but sometimes Zack will be given access to something exclusive. For example, the chance to be a moving billboard for his would-be employers.
Here you can see some examples of the Octopi and Cthulhu Corp paintjobs (yes, we’ve been making a lot of those lately) that will only be unlocked by doing missions for their respective factions. Exactly when they’ll be unlocked is still undecided, but these along with faction-exclusive weapons and upgrades will be rewards for making friends with the right organizations. Of course, it’s up to you to decide who the right organizations are…
You might also notice the new frames on the cab in those images. Collateral isn’t going to be all guns all the time. You’ll start with a smaller arsenal and have to earn your way up to using the big guns. New frames, and thus new weapon configuration options, will be unlocked throughout the game no matter which factions you side with.
That’s all for this week. Thanks for reading! –David
