v4.0.0 Patch Notes

Objective Changes:
  • The first zone double objective now gives the Shotgun.
  • The second zone double objective now gives the Inspection Kit.
  • The first zone now predominately contains light items in the objectives.
  • Levers now spawn closer to the objectives they activate.
  • You now receive 3 Traps from objectives instead of just 1.

Night Period Changes:
  • There are now 3 Fuse Boxes in the first zone and 2 in the second. You need to put 1 Fuse in each.
  • If you fail to fill all the Fuse Boxes during the night period the game will go into enraged mode. If you still can't put all the Fuses in during this time the innocents will lose.
  • When the enraged period starts the fuses can be viewed from further away.

Terror Changes:
  • You can now drink blood during enraged periods.
  • You can no longer interact with fuses whilst in Terror Form.
  • Terrors now have 100 "light health". This value is affected by light items (i.e. the camera). This value affects the Terror's movement speed and, eventually, it's ability to execute innocents.
  • Terrors can't execute when they've reached 30 light health. During this period they also can't transform.
  • Light items no longer down terrors and the only way to down terrors is via gun damage.
  • After 3 seconds of not taking light damage Terrors will start to regenerate their light health. It takes 1.5 seconds to fully regenerate your light health.
  • Terrors now glow when they are hit by light items. This scales with their light health and becomes a lot more prominent when a Terror is unable to execute an innocent.
  • Terror executions can now be cancelled with light items! The Terror must be put into the "unable to execute" state for this to occur.
  • A blood particle effect has been added to Terror executions. When this happens you will no longer be able to cancel the execution.
  • The cooldown for transforming has been increased to 6 seconds.
  • There's now a warning before you're automatically transformed out of Terror Form.

Vent Changes:
  • You can now choose the vent that you exit from.
  • If you don't choose a vent within 10 seconds you will leave via the vent you entered.
  • Once you've chosen a vent there is 3 second travel time and a noise will be triggered from the vent you are exiting.
  • Lights have been added to the vents to make them more obvious.

[New item] Torch:
  • The Torch is our third light item in the game. When 'fire' is held down it produces a beam of light that will apply light damage to the Terrors.
  • Deals 30 light damage a second.
  • Has 20 seconds of battery life.

Character Select Changes:
  • You no longer select a character during the initial period of the game but instead choose a preferred character on the Main Menu.
  • All 6 players will play as a unique character in the game.
  • If multiple people have the same preferred character the game will randomly choose the character they play as.
  • New animations have been added to be shown in this period of the game.

End of Game Changes:
  • This is now shown on the Main Menu instead of in-game.
  • The way you give reputation to players after games has been improved.
  • You can see the event time line of what happened during the game on this screen. If you leave the game early it will dynamically fill these in.
  • A different environment is shown in the background based on the map you just played.
  • As long as all of your party are in this screen you will remain together and be able to requeue once you've left the screen.
  • The players you just played with are now shown in the 'Recent Players' section of the friends list. You can add them as friends, view their profile, invite them to your party or report them. Any friends you played with will not be shown in this list.

  • Our third Perk Tree has been added to the game along with new emblem rewards.
  • There's now a unique background for the Perk Tree when viewing it.
  • You are now refunded up to 5 rows worth of points after a season change. This is based on how many points you had received in the previous season.
  • New perks:
    • Blood Thirsty: Move 10% faster towards Innocents carrying fuses whilst in Terror Form.
    • Locked On: Your Terror sense highlights players with fuses that aren't running.
    • Stubborn: Levers that you've activated require more damage to be disabled.
    • Fun Sponge: You gain half a slice of Terror strength for each lever you deactivate.
    • Every Last Drop: If you respawn in human form you will only lose half a slice of Terror strength.
    • Weak Point: There's a 10% chance that a lever is instantly deactivated when you damage it.
    • Vengeance: After respawning in Terror Form you can see the person that downed you for 5 seconds.
    • Blasé: When downed, additional votes cast on you increase your respawn time by 4 seconds instead of 5.

About This Game

Deceit tests your instincts at trust and deception in a multiplayer first-person shooter. You wake up in an asylum to the sound of an unfamiliar voice, surrounded by five others. A third of your group have been infected with a virus, but who will escape? Whilst traversing the building the power will be going out creating darkness, allowing the infected players to transform into their terror form and strike. Find allies and complete objectives around the map to better your chances of survival.

The environment has been specifically setup to cause conflict amongst the group, creating doubt about the true intentions of players. The infected will be trying to cover up their group sabotage attempts, whilst the rest will be keeping an eye out for this suspicious behaviour and attempt to join forces with people they think they can trust.

As you progress through the map you'll come across objectives that will help you survive and progress towards the exit. However, you will need to decide which is most important to you, and whether to collaborate or fight with other players over them. With each decision gives players more information and an indication to what team you're likely to be on. However, the perception of each action won't necessarily be seen as a fair representation to others about your intentions as the truth can be easily skewed.

There are blackout periods across the map which allow for the infected to transform into what's known as their terror form. In this form they are much faster, stronger, and have night vision, with only one weakness: light. In this form the infected are truly terrifying, and with an array of intense killing animations players will be able to create some scary but also funny moments.

Overall, the gameplay involves the frenzy of fast paced combat mixed with strategic map positioning, and of course the psychological aspects of determining who is infected.
