    From November 9th, a major event will be ongoing at Planet Calypso, where your choices will be crucial, since the events ultimate ending is that it will allow the players to determine its outcome. So what will you do?

    In this limited time event, which will unfold in several stages, Calypso's colonists will face a new and evolved enemy invading the landscape of Calypso. Under direction from the military, colonists will have to recon, hunt and repel a technologically advanced new nemesis. Is this relentless foe only here to hunt humans, or is it a harbinger for something far worse?

    The Harbinger Event will feature new enemies to fight, a gripping storyline complete with new missions, a new environment, and an ending determined by the players. Colonists will be able to participate and find rare and valuable new items during the event. Those who take up the Harbinger challenge will also receive a special diploma from the Calypso Defense Forces documenting their part in the largest battle for survival ever seen on this planet.

What you do is simply write up an article, publish it on forum either via making a thread or in your blog –Send me the link via personal message, say you want it to be published on front-page and I’ll take a look at it. The article will of course be published under your name.

    Port Atlantis have finally become a proper metropolis. With sleek skyscrapers, a fancy marina and plenty of places to just relax and enjoy the view, Port Atlantis may now very well be deserving of the title Capital of Calypso.

    In this Content Release you will find new missions easing out the threshold for newcomers leaving the Gateway and entering Calypso. Here you'll learn about mechanics, economics, social life and other concepts of living on Planet Calypso through missions and tutorials.

    Port Atlantis trade terminals now offers New Arrivals Equipment. Why not try them out on the Puny Mobs at the remade and atmospheric new Swamp Camp area!

    The release also brings a brand new vehicle with room for no less then 8 people. The Omegaton Pitbull is a beast of a machine with built-in ABC protection and great off-road capabilities.

    Of course there's also plenty of new missions to get your hands on!

    MindArk's latest Version Update, released Tuesday 28th September, have brought with it vehicles capable of taking on other parts of Calypso's nature than what was available from before. Boats, VTOL's (Verticle Take Off and Landing) and Hovercrafts are now available for Calypso's colonists. No mountaintop is going to be unconquerable, no island too deserted. ...Well, to be fair, since we've had Oberon rummaging around out there nothing have really been unconquerable.

    And for one feature which have been requested for years, MindArk are now launching in-game voice chat. This is done in cooperation with Swedish telecommunication company Ericsson. For the future, MindArk have great plans for expanding this feature; 3D chats, and real world to virtual world communication.

    For those of you who are hooked on social networking, Entropia is finally becoming Facebook and Twitter integrated, so you can share your accomplishments. While we're on the subject of social networking; Entropia Universe have started their own twitter feed. And if you didn't know it already, Planet Calypso has its own official facebook page here.

    Despite all that jazz, it might be the little added feature of extra slots to the friends-list that does it for some of you. You now have room for 150 friends! And of course, the infamous "knock knock" is back. Phew!

    Read here for the full Version Update notes.

    That was MindArk's release, Ladies and Gentlemen! First Planet Company's Content Release is scheduled for next week if all goes well. This time we're introducing a new graphic standard to the Port Atlantis area. How about some boats in our new Marina?
