We've launched the endless update which adds daily challenge mode to the game!
On the main menu you'll find a new button called Endless which generates a new map every day which is the same for every player so you'll be able to compete for score on the daily global leaderboards.
This mode is slightly different in that you'll have to find tech crates that randomly appear on the map which will unlock a new random tech. You'll also have to keep an eye out for survivor pods and crystal nodes that randomly appear around the map. (Tech and survivor lists are the same for each person that day).
Can you adapt to a random set of tech and survivor skills each day and get the highest score?
Any science points earned in endless mode also carries over to the story campaign which will help you unlock more tech if you're finding the current level a bit difficult.
Co-op and other modes will be added soon after this update.
