Guns of Ocarus Online developer Muse Games has released the game’s 1.3 update, adding a new Mobula ship, a Phobos Mine Launcher and more into the mix. Get the details here.

The studio spooled off the update’s full patch notes in this blog post.

The Mobula ship is described as, “a more advanced attack ship with 5 front facing guns and no guns on side or back. It has good vertical movement, but it is more difficult to repair in the heat of battle.”

“The Mobula puts the most possible firepower in one direction,” Muse continues, “with five front facing guns and nothing anywhere else. Due to the layout of the ship repairs will be difficult while in mid-combat, making the Mobula one of the highest risk and reward ship to fly.

“Meanwhile, the Phobos Mine Launcher will add a new level of depth to play. Up to 5 mines can be shot into the sky, deploying after 3 seconds with a balloon. Any ship passing nearby will have it detonated for massive damage… and yes, the balloon can be shot causing the mine to fall onto a hapless victim. Beware though, these mines can’t tell friend from foe.”

The update also lets you form a crew and parties. Check out the link above for the rather lengthy patch notes and explanations.
