After ReCore's release this week, it seemed to be missing one glaring piece of content: T8-NK, or a tank that several Redditors noticed was curiously gone from the content lineup.
T8-NK is a special frame that was meant to be swapped out between robots Mack, Seth, and Duncan, which offers various ways to traverse the landscape in-game. T8-NK itself is seen in the promotional art for the game, and there are a handful of references made within the game itself that seem as though it should be a part of it. It's all lead fans to believe it's part of a conspiracy that the game actually released unfinished and without core content that it was meant to include.
Today, Joseph Staten, Creative Director for Microsoft Studios Global Publishing, tweeted the following:
Hey @ReCoreGame fans. The T8-NK frame is not currently available in the game. But please stay tuned for news.— Joseph Staten (@joestaten) September 16, 2016
Staten's wording implies that the T8-NK frame might indeed be coming to the game in the future, but it's unclear at this time if it will be as DLC with an additional charge or if it's going to be patched in via update. We'll have to wait and see what comes of this announcement, which is no doubt a bit surprising for players who were looking forward to trying this specific frame.
