  • Emote Chat Strings:
    • Players will no longer have to look at you when you emote. Using an emote will create a chat notification that informs players which emote you use. Supposedly, there is an easter egg hidden in these strings.
  • Emote Wheel
    • The emote wheel has been shrunk from six slots to four, making finding the emote you wish to use easier. These can be swapped out at any time, allowing you to have your favorite emotes on hand quickly.
  • Quick Emote
    • With the quick emote system, you can assign emotes to keys using the hotkey system. With a simple button or key press, you can pull up a quick-emote box, and use emotes even faster.
  • In-game Instructions
    • Emoting used to be a hidden secret, forcing players to figure out the system on their own. With the new in-game instructions, you will be able to learn how to emote with ease.
  • Default Emotes
    • Every player will now start with default emotes. This includes Wave, Simple Clap, Follow Me, and Over There. More emotes can be purchased or unlocked.
