New Player Experience
This will be an introduction to new players giving them a better rounding on the game's mechanics from flying to combat. It is a step beyond the current tutorial system and will see players having full access to the game experience in a sandboxed area of the galaxy.
A new ingame currency will be both purchasable with real-world money and earnable in game. It'll be used to buy cosmetic items for your ships - new paint jobs, decals etc that previously would have been only available with your real cash.
The new currency system will also see bundle items being made available individually and will tie into a new livery system that has been developed for the game.
