Not familiar with Livelock?

 

Nearly a century after a cataclysmic gamma ray burst, humanity is on the brink of extinction. Clusters of corrupted machines control what remains of the Earth, warring among themselves for resources. The large, robotic Capital Intellects are the last trace of humans, thrown into this fray in hopes of regaining control of the planet.

Livelock is a fast-paced cooperative top-down shooter where you and two of your friends are tasked with controlling the Capital Intellects through the post-human conflict. Customize your character’s unique arsenal and function abilities to create a team that will bring order to the chaotic Earth, and see humanity rebuilt.

Livelock: Steam Release Notes: September 27, 2016

We're launching a new and exciting patch for Livelock today! Check out the latest changes that will be available in game with this update.

New Difficulty Mode - Transcendent Difficulty (Survival)

Players start each Mission with 1 Reprint. If the player is destroyed in single player, the Mission is failed. If a player is destroyed in COOP, they can follow (and cheer on!) their remaining allies using Spectator Mode. Once all players are destroyed, the Mission is failed.

Two New Open Protocol Modes - Endless War and Extract

Open Protocol (Endless War)

Endless War tracks enemy destructions instead of Score on the Leaderboards. The Difficulty will automatically be set to the highest available difficulty. With the Difficulty locked, players with greater skill will survive longer, destroy more enemies and earn a higher rank on the Leaderboards.

Open Protocol (Extract)
Extract has a 15 minute time limit. At the end of 15 minutes, enemies stop spawning and a Drop Pod lands for extraction. Players successfully leaving the mission in the Drop Pod earn a Reprint Bonus. Skilled players will earn higher score through more enemy destructions and larger destruction streaks. With a set Mission time, the Difficulty Multiplier and Reprint Bonus plays a significant role when competing on the Leaderboards.
