The dawn of All Hallows' Eve is almost upon us and the world of DiscStorm is getting spooky update!
Millie has passed on to the afterlife but is making her return in a much more... ethereal form. We've made some eerie alterations each of the arenas too, including a delightfully ghoulish candy bucket. Some of the enemies in single player are even donning their best, spine-chilling Halloween costumes!
We've just added a huge new update with loads of deathmatch-related content to get your hands on!
Grab some friends now and start launching discs at each others' faces, or take on our totally overhauled AI opponents with their own unique personalities.
We've added complete deathmatch customisation, plus three hectic new deathmatch modes to try too: Capture The Flag, Zombies and Safeguard. Each one adds its own distinct tactical challenges to the line-up.
Our brand new combatant Ravi brings his fire-wielding, unhinged presence to the arena, along with his own set of flaming hot costumes.
We've got some exciting news to talk about today. DiscStorm is getting a major update! This should come as no surprise if you've followed our blog ove the last few months, however, after plenty of testing we're happy to announce that the DiscStorm Mulitplayer Update will be launching July 2016 on Steam. This update is packed full of features and we can't wait to get it into your hands. Here's what's in the patch:
New Game Modes
We're adding three new multiplayer modes, each introduces a new way to beat your friends. There's the strategic Safeguard where holding onto your disc is essential, the score based Capture the Flag mode where you need to be in the right place at the right time and the frantic Poison where you need to chase after the cure to the zombie outbreak.
Custom Multiplayer Matches
Fancy playing DiscStorm for more matches, want to only play a particular mode or on your favourite three arenas? The customisation menu lets your tweak all aspects of a multiplayer from how many rounds you need to win to whether voting or powerups are enabled.
We've vastly improved the AI in multiplayer, they have unique behaviours for each mode and they also have their own personalities. We feel this makes the AI mimic humans a lot better so they're not the superhumans that they currently are but still put up a challenge and can respond to different situations a lot better!
And much much more!
This isn't a comprehensive list of features and there's a whole bunch more content bundled away including:
Taunt animations to tease your friends
Voting menu in mutliplayer matches
A new system for unlocking character costumes
Plenty of bug fixes
One other little secret that you'll have to discover for yourselves
It’s time to talk about the new things that we’ll be adding to DiscStorm over the coming months!
We’ve been keeping fairly quiet about it since the game’s release, but we’re now finally ready to reveal that online multiplayer support will be added to DiscStorm in 2016. We’re also working on more customisation options for deathmatches too!
The keen-eyed amongst you may have also noticed that we’re part of this year’s Yogscast Jingle Jam Humble Bundle. If you head over there now, you can pick up DiscStorm and a whole host of other awesome games for a great price, whilst helping out charity at the same time!
