FORCED v1.3 - Slightly Better Edition



Hi everyone!

It’s been a long time since we updated FORCED because we’ve been exceedingly busy getting the game out on consoles.
Today, however, we’ve got a real treat for you; the Slightly Better Edition.
This update upgrades the Survival modes with 2 new maps and a crystal system, allowing you to gain new powers through playing Survival.

It also contains a lot of optimization and some bug-fixing, which should help everyone run it a little smoother :)

We’re deploying this version as a patch so it’ll be freely available to everyone, and all our new gladiators will get to join in the fun right away :)

I hope you’ll pick up the game again and give it a spin, and perhaps welcome our newest members of the community who are searching for games :)

Changelog
  • Gem system for survival modes: You can now earn up to 3 gems in each of the co-op survival modes, based on how long you stay alive. These gems also unlock skills in the campaign.
  • The Laser Pit survival mode added: A new Survival map that will let you try your skills against the deadly rotating laser that you encountered in Trial 11: Run for Cover. This time, however, the enemies won’t give you a break!
  • The Dungeon survival mode added: Another new survival map that uses all the mechanics from the fourth chamber of the campaign. This map will never get repetitive when you die hundreds of times, as the enemy spawning has been randomized!
  • 4 new achievements to earn by playing the survival modes
  • Large optimization improvements. This will also help network play to be less laggy as the host computer no longer struggles to keep up :)
    • Chamber 4 environment darkness optimized
    • Blood machine blood optimized
    • Final boss FX optimized: Giant portals spell, Meteor Shower.
  • Improved the design of the Final boss. Fixed a few exploit issues and balanced a few skills. Also fixed the fact that you could resurrect outside the arena.
  • Inserted a startup logo screen to tell new players they should expect a hard game and should try to play it co-op :)
  • Improved a lot of localization, implementing translations for a lot of the things that were missing.

Remember we always like to hear your opinions, so go give us some feedback on the forums!
Also a big thank you to the community members that helped us test this new patch for issues;
Rankaquion, Paurmon, Jedo, rialda_dreal and all the guys who volunteered but didn’t get to try it :)
Enjoy!

“Forced is one of the best co-op games around”

“Teamwork unlike almost any game I've played before”

“It is these strategy elements, whether mental or physical, and the degree of communication and coordination required to achieve them where FORCED truly shines as a co-op game.”

FORCED plays great with a controller

What is the Slightly Better Edition?

Since the release of FORCED back in 2013 we’ve been continuously updating the game. In celebration of our anniversary we released another major update to the game which now makes it the Slightly Better Edition.

  • Survival Modes overhaul
    The Survival Mode feature has received an overhaul with new maps and a reward system to make it a more integral part of the game.
    • There are now 4 survival maps (up from 2), 3 of them endless waves and 1 versus.
    • Each of the endless Survival maps now award crystals based on the times you achieve. These crystals are added to your Campaign crystals when determining which abilities and maps you unlock.
    • 4 new achievements to earn by playing the survival modes
  • Large optimization improvements; This will also help network play to be less laggy as the host computer no longer struggles to keep up :)
  • Final Boss improvements; The Final boss of the game has received some design love, FX optimization and additional bug-fixing for a greater climax to the game!
  • Menu improvements; A splash screen for new players to welcome them into the world of FORCED and simplified lobby interface
  • New Input system; a fully reworked input system should make our controller support even more stable by supporting additional features such as switching seamlessly between controller and keyboard even in-game!
    Still a work in progress, so you may experience a few issues :)
  • Localization additions: We’ve added Polish as a language to the game, and have also implemented a lot of translations that were missing from previous verisons.
  • Plenty of updates between the original release and the most recent one
    • Network overhaul - Across multiple iterations we’ve overhauled the networking of FORCED, fixing the problems people initially had with connecting and lag. We’re still improving this, as there’s always opportunities to make it better
    • Singleplayer resurrect - Since the original release we introduced a resurrection mechanic in Singleplayer to adjust the difficulty and to keep the experience closer to the co-op style of the game. This makes the game more fun in singleplayer, although we still suggest playing co-op :)
    • Bug fixes galore. The obvious one, but we really want to mention that we’ve spent tons of time fixing bugs and issues that the community helped us track down - and still are!

I really owe this game a review. I've had more fun with this playing with friends than any other game. No other game has permitted me to talk at such loud levels to the people sitting next to me.

It's a lot like gauntlent but a greater challenge in my opinion. Where as gauntlent is more geared toward grinding mobs down, this is more for how well can you work together on a particular goal. I haven't encountered many games that make you have to be this tightly coordinated. Weak links will become apparent and quick. Each level brings a new way of having to making a plan. Each monster has to be learned how to be dealt with. Kiting isn't an option. Understanding how each fighter operates is vital.

My warnings: This is meant for co-op. You can play single player, but you aren't going to have as much fun. More importantly, you will want to find a consistant person or so to play with, which I know isn't always easy. Pugging this game usually ends in a bad result, and there aren't enough people in the lobby to make games happen when you have time to play. Also, I would not say this is for a casual gamer. If you haven't built up a reasonable degree of twitch, I feel you are just going to get frustrated. I'm not saying people can't learn, but I've seen people that don't play a lot of games say this is not for them.

Games are fun, but to me this one was an experience. One I could share with some good friends.

9\10

Pros
  • something something Dark Souls, you have to understand how the level works or you die, there is no way to faceroll to the win
  • nice spells\combo
  • awesome in local coop, you'll need to cooperate or you'll fail miserably
  • good graphics\music
  • well scripted boss fights\encounters

Cons:
  • probably it's unplayable in singleplayer
  • you'll definitely need a microphone

Lots of fun. Great game for the casuals AND the hardcore gamers. It's a challenge even if you don't look to complete all the achievement ( I did...I got hooked...It's awesome ^^ ). You never stop improving and if you're up to the challenge, you're going to have loads of fun.

The adventure is great, with a steady learning curve. You get to learn how to play each of these four badasses if you feel like it or you can just go and solo one of them if you have a favourite, it's not impossible to finish the game if you do.

Bosses are sometimes a bit easy because the strats are quite simple to understand BUT most of them are still challenging because in this game, knowing what to do is the easy part, being able to do it is a whole other story.

If you have a trustworthy group of friends though, buy the fourpack, and solve these levels together. The more the merrier. Really. Especially since some of these levels take you by surprise : there's nothing funnier than seeing your friends panic and getting slaughtered in every side of the map because of some new content to the game ^^ (Beware of the fog !).

Finally, the new mode they added, survival mode, is a gem. The first levels are a bit easy to beat imo, compared to the rest of the game, but the last one is....evil. I can't imagine playing with 4 players in this last level, but I'm guessing it must be the funniest experience this game has to offer. You'll understand once you get there ^^
Also, there is a 'last man standing' level in these survival maps which seems pretty interesting and very promising in a way that I'll surely spend nights with my friends playing this level only and having fun helping/betraying your friends to survive the longest time possible =D.

Overall an incredible game for those who like puzzles, badass characters with skill trees and passive trees, and last but not least, a little bit of challenge, for a price that is, in my opinion way underappreciated.

This game is awesome if you are looking for a difficult teamwork and co-op experience. The PVE in this game is actually difficult, unlike most recent games. Very recommended and worth the price for sure.
