Over the next 10 weeks, Trion Worlds' Atlas Reactor is getting a slew of content, including a new freelancer (read: character), modes, and a free-to-play model.
The game's Season 2 update lets anyone try the game out and purchase characters individually with a new in-game currency, called Flux.
The update also adds Brynn the Skywarden, who can create cover at her location, with a second character planned for later in the season. You'll be able to try Brynn out in a five new modes introduced over the course of season as well, with the first being All-Random. The game's beginning hours, existing characters, and ranked system have each received some tweaks as well, easing players and making losses in competitive play a bit less devastating.
Atlas Reactor always looked kind of interesting, and with the game now being free-to-play, that may encourage more people to jump in. Which is good, because as the multiplayer space gets more crowded, free-to-play seems like the only option for any game that needs a consistent player base to make it fun.
