The latest update went live December 12th and introduced yet another partner for the game. G.Skill, a RAM provider, has been added, with several of their stylish RGB sticks added to the Shop.

Trident Z RGB range of RAM, from new partner, G.Skill.

The update also added new CPUs from both Intel and AMD, new cases, new cooling options, and a batch of bug fixes.

You can head over to developer’s blog post here. It includes all the accompanying pictures to all the hardware, which I’m not listing here.

What’s Next?

Lot’s of new parts, new partners plus plenty of bug fixes and quality of life improvements.

Final notes of the blog post.

I haven’t had a chance to try out the new hardware yet, but I know some of the bug fixes already will make a big difference. Hit me up in the comments if you notice something is broken that was fixed!
