In this post we want to tell you about a feature that we have been discussing internally: the Exploration Backpacks.
Exploration Backpacks will be scattered randomly around the mountain and will contain valuable and rare items that can be used to customize your character. Backpacks can either contain specific cool items, or might contain in-game currency that can be used for purchases in the store. The contents of the backpacks will help you to further customize your characters, a concept we will discuss in a later post.
As we see it, when you start a new gameplay session, a random amount of backpacks will be spawned around the mountain in random locations. It is then up to you then to go and find them, or at least keep an eye out while you are riding around. Some items contained in these Backpacks will be really rare, so players who find them should feel lucky!
Markus, Poppermost's artist, has given us a first-look at one of the Backpacks. Check out the image below, head over to the forum, and tell us what you think!
