Get ready, Genovians! The latest update to the app has arrived, and it's ushering in an era of shared excitement and fierce competition. This update isn't just about adding new features; it's a gateway to fostering deeper connections. From multiplayer Step Battles that bring the community closer to Pet Expressions that deepen your bond with your virtual companions, this update is all about enriching your Genopets experience. Let's dive into the details of what this update has in store.

Step Battles: A Strategic Delight

Gone are the days of solitary walks. With the introduction of Step Battles, Genovians can now step into the multiplayer arena and put their walking prowess to the test against friends, family, or any challengers worldwide. The allure of discovering who truly rules the walking world has never been more enticing. Adding to the fun, Step Battles aren’t just about the number of steps you take; it's about the strategy you employ to outdo your opponents.

A core part of Step Battles is your chosen Augments – these enhancements can make all the difference in the heat of close competition. Engage for pure fun or elevate the stakes by wagering Energy, intensifying the thrill as you challenge others in the ultimate step showdown. Whether you're facing off against your best friend or taking on your mom, prepare to unveil the undisputed walking champion!

Note: Battles are public by default, wager Energy (at least 1) to keep your battle private to only people you’ve invited.

Strategic Depth with Style Sets

Remember the Style Sets that were announced during the launch of Season 1? Well, now is the moment you've been waiting for – they're here and ready for action! These Style Set Bonuses are no longer just an idea; they're in the game, adding an exciting strategic element to your Genopets experience. By collecting and equipping specific Augment sets, you can activate unique in-game effects that set you apart. And what better time to embrace these bonuses than with the launch of Step Battles? If you're aiming to dominate in the step-based arena, the Jurassic set with its 15% speed boost could be your ticket to victory.

Wondering about the other Bonuses?

  • Assemble 3 Cetacea Augments: Enjoy a +4 boost to all stats.

  • Gather 3 Aviana Augments: Benefit from +10% to HP

  • Mysterious Cetacea = still mysterious (more soon)

Note: Set Bonus effects will only be visible when choosing Augments. Enhancements to Pet Details and Augmentation overview screen are coming in the next build

Pet Expressions: A Deeper Connection with Your Genopets

As your Genopets evolve and adapt, so does the way you interact with them. Prepare to witness an enchanting transformation in your virtual companions through the Pet Expressions feature. Your Genopets will now display a spectrum of emotions, reacting dynamically to your interactions. Give them a whirl, and you might observe them becoming slightly dizzy. Shower them with steps and treats to witness their genuine elation. But remember, much like their real-world counterparts, a hungry Genopet can swiftly shift from hunger to hangry. This addition doesn't just add depth to gameplay; it fosters an authentic bond between you and your digital companions.

Final Thoughts

In the grand vision of Genopets, v0.8.0 is a pivotal chapter. It's a chapter that turns the spotlight on the bonds we build, whether with our fellow players or with our virtual companions. As you delve into the multiplayer adventures of Step Battles, enhancing your strategy with Style Set Bonuses, and the heartwarming expressions of your Genopets, remember that beyond the digital realm, the connections you form are as real as can be.
