Hard Reset Gets Survival Mode with New Maps and More.
1.2 Patch for Flying Wild Hog's Old-School Shooter Adds NVIDIA 3DVision Support and Gameplay Fixes.
Flying Wild Hog's debut shooter turned a lot of heads when it was released last month, thanks to its fast-paced, destructive action, unconventional weaponry and incredible visuals. Flying Wild Hog is kicking the heart-pounding gameplay up a notch with the introduction of Survival Mode in the 1.2 patch, which is available today. Survival Mode unleashes wave after wave of robotic hell upon the player, who has make good use of weapon upgrades to delay the inevitable as long as possible. The new game mode is available in all of the game's difficulty modes, and brings with it two new maps, as well as leaderboards to compare scores with friends.
