    SuperGaming Reveals Details about Indus’ Map, Anti-Cheat, Battle Pass, and More

    1. Indus and Virlok Map

    According to the lore, the planet of Indus is a mystery to almost every spacefaring civilisation. The planet comprises a collection of untouched, unexplored, and ever-changing islands. The reason why it is significant to the galaxy is because of the planet’s limitless deposits of a valuable substance called Cosmium.

    Furthermore, the game will majorly take place on an ever-changing island map called Virlok. From the sound of it, it appears that the map will also undergo transformation routinely, probably to coincide with new seasons and content drops.

    3. Anti-Cheat and Game Engine

    According to the developers, Indus will strive to have a level playing field by employing various methods of anti-cheat. The game runs on Unity as a base engine with a custom-built sandbox shooter tech stack called the Indus Engine.
