Subject: Upcoming Earth & Beyond Changes

For those of you already engulfed in Westwood's Earth & Beyond, their recently released massively multiplayer space sim, you may already know that they're planning on releasing monthly updates to include new content, etc. If you aren't in the know, then here's the word:

Westwood Studios(tm) announced today that it will release a content update of Earth & Beyond(tm) this month that includes several new missions, high-level items, new information on trade goods, and enhancements to the embedded browser. Earth & Beyond is an online role-playing galaxy that is published by Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:ERTS) under the EA GAMES(tm) brand.

Westwood plans to add features, enhancements and content to Earth & Beyond at the end of every month as the game's galaxy continues to evolve.

This month's update will go live Oct. 30 and will include:
New missions for all character archetypes.
New unique items that are dropped when players kill high-level monsters.
A speed increase to all ships while planet side.
Improved item drops for mid- to high-level monsters.
Additional information on trade good items.
Graphical enhancements to combat.
Enhancements to the embedded browser.
In addition to the planned monthly updates, Westwood will release event patches for special occasions, including one planned for Oct. 31. This patch will deliver content for a special in-game Halloween event to be held that day.
Dynamic content would definately be a nice change to some of todays current online games (*cough* EverQuest *cough*) so that you're not always stuck with the same 'ol grind.
