Completed campaigns also unlock special in-game events such as the Korolev Laser Drill, which veterans are already familiar with. Once the event has started, players must prepare to defend the drill with their lives against hostile attacks in order to reap additional rewards if successful. The other two factions, Osiris and ICA, also have extensive in-game events up their sleeves, the secrets of which can be explored in the second closed beta starting on March 10th.
