It's been a big week of news for Fallen Earth. Despite the cutbacks in development staff, the developer is pushing forward with content and events for players of the post-apocalyptic MMOG to take part in. Starting tonight (May 5th), players can log into Fallen Earth and enjoy the Cinco de Mayo celebration that will take place from 6:00pm-11:00pm EDT. The team will be hosting a dance party at Embry Bunker Bar (waypoint 4241542 3232776) and giving away in-game cerveza and sombreros. Or as the Fallen Earth team likes to call them, wasteland-style cowboy hats.
In addition to the celebration, Fallen Earth will also be getting a new achievement system with the 1.4 Blood Sports update, over 500 new rewards, an effects revamp, and a one-time respec. All this new content is currently available on the PTS, so if you're a Fallen Earth fan make sure to give it a look.
Fallen Earth, LLC, also announced a new partnership with publisher Interactive Gaming Software this week aimed at expanding Fallen Earth's availability through North America with new digital distribution and retail options.
