Developer to help with the API integration with wearables (Google Fit and Apple Health)

2) 3D artist to improve upon the look of the Titan, add more cosmetic options (hairstyles, body compositions and skin overlays) build gears, weapons and rooms.

What's Coming Soon (November-December)

Dear Titans, we are currently building out the gear store for you to purchase various weapons, gear and items with grind tokens.

DNA SAMPLES

We will be releasing DNA samples first in the Helios store. 

You'll be able to purchase anything from DNA samples to DNA packs with Titan Medals or Tokens.


The Habitants available in the Helios Store will be rotated on a frequent basis. 

There will be everything from BehemothBeast, Epic, RareUncommon and Common samples.

In addition, there will be exclusive DNA samples which can only be purchased in the Helios Store and cannot be acquired through grind drops.


Exclusive DNA samples includes the Orca Whale from the Pacific faction and the Arctic Dire Wolf.

DNA SAMPLE PACKS

Soon you will be able to purchase DNA packs that contain an assortment of DNA samples from a specific faction.

A higher tiered pack will contain not only a guaranteed drop of that tier (for example: an epic DNA pack is guaranteed to drop an epic DNA sample) but also 6 other DNA samples from lower tiers with a slight chance to get another DNA sample from that tier. Purchasing 10 beast packs will guarantee either an additional beast habitant within the purchase of the 10 pack or a slight chance to receive a habitant of an even higher tier (in this case, the bonus would be a B
ehemoth DNA Sample).

What's inside a pack?

Grind System 2.0

There will be a high priority on implementing Grind 2.0 as there have been multiple requests for auto-syncing with different wearables.

For the Grind 2.0 system, there will be an emphasis on auto--syncing which has been a highly requested by you guys. We will implement the integration with Google Fit and Apple Health first and then work our way down the popularity list for wearables including Fitbit, Garmin and Samsung.

What other items will be offered in the Helios Store?

Battle Dome Series Weapons (Helios Issued)
These are weapons that can be purchased affordably from the Helios Store. They serve as low tier training weapons that have been mass produced for the Battle Dome but don't be mistaken: they can still deal lethal damage.

Stand-alone Weapons/Gear
These are weapons and gear items that can be purchased or acquired from NPC's aboard the ship. They sometimes come as a set but more often are one-off items that serve a need when you need a powerful sword or durable shield.​​

Symbiotes

These will be equippable bio-forms that can be attached to Habitants. For instance a remora fish symbiote can be purchased for your Great White Habitant.These Symbiotes can benefit the Habitant during PVE combat by providing a buff.

Amazon Series

This line of items and gear will kick off the season one campaign of Alter Titan. Amazon weapons can be combined into a full suit for not only aesthetic appeal but also for full-suit buffs

Droids​​

Droids can be purchased for combat scenarios. One droid is the Auto-Surgeon Bot which can be deployed in combat and tends to your wounds after each of your turns. Other droids can be deployed for additional cover against enemy damage or skill buffs

Grenades 
Grenades are projectiles that can significantly alter the outcome of a battle. When used they can deal AOE status effects or raw damage against a group of enemies. 

Helios Claymore

One of the weapons that are Helios Issued and have cosmetic flare when equipped. This large sword requires both hands and is a favorite among the Vangaurd Class.

EX-1 Kirin Bow 

Another weapon that is Helios Issued and has cosmetic flare when equipped. This bow is a favorite among the Scout Class and requires high dexterity and luck to use effectively. 

 

Near Future Plans

We plan to introduce the Black Willow campaign where you will be able to embark on your journey aboard the Galaxus. 

This will feature enemies from the Black Willow Faction, Senza, Amazon Allegiance, Helios Corp and the Galaxus.

If you'd like to take a break from the story mode or need to level up your team after getting stuck with a segment during the story you can try your skills int he Amazon Bio-Dome and earn exp.

The Amazon Bio-Dome will contain these zones for replayability:

Habitant Ascension System

With the ascension system, you'll be able to upgrade your Habitants from a lower tier (common to uncommon) by joining duplicate Habitants. 

Many of you guys have duplicates of habitants especially those of lower tiers. Combing a common a few times will permit you to ascend the once frail Habitant into a Beast Tier battle companion.
