Krater 1.1 Release notes

Krater version 1.1 is the first of three major free content updates that Krater will get within the next few weeks.

Main features:
- First step towards a fully-fledged coop feature. It is kept relatively small to make sure that we have resources to handle any issues or bugs that might arise when large numbers of players are playing it. Krater v1.2 and v1.3 are going to expand on this.
- Support for handling several profiles with different saves connected to your Steam accounts cloud saves. Your old save is labeled Default in the profile list.
- Engine upgrade for improved performance and better stability.
- We have looked over player stats and their effect on damage, armor and abilities.
- New achievements added.
- The game is now translated into Russian, Portuguese and Polish. The single player content is translated into German, German coop strings are still to be added (shortly).
- Enemy AI is also being looked over and tweaked

- Loot drop rate and epic item generation is also being reworked; the first changes are implemented already in the 1.1 build.
Product Release - Valve
The Character DLC Mayhem MK13 DLC is Now Available for Krater.

Mayhem Mk13, the pinnacle of aggressive assault technologies formed from the knowledge extracts of a Mutant Slayer’s brain and the latest cybernetic limbs collected from the Underside.

Dare to delve deeper on high-risk excavation ventures where the Mayhem Mk13′s tactical flexibility will be the difference between life and death.

Also, Krater has been recently updated to include the new 2 person Co-Op!

Product Update - Valve
Krater version 1.0.18 Hot Fix 1 - content revision 23785



This patch is preparing the game for the coop update October 23. The Coop Menu (accessed with short key K ingame) is disabled until that date. Your old save will be named Default in the new profile list.
If you are experiencing any issues with the new save and would like to restore your old saves you can do that by:

1. Right Clicking the game in your Steam Library
2. Choose Properties
3. In the General tab write, click the SET LAUNCH OPTIONS
4. Write reset_save in the field
5. Start the game and press Restore Save button in the bottom left corner. This will delete all your progress from this update (non-reversible)

Main features added
- Support for creating several profiles with different saves
- Polish language support
- Engine upgrade for improved performance

Overhaul in the following areas:
- Loot drops and item generation
- Menu and HUD
- Enemy AI (aggro ranges and threat generations)
- Added timer to revive (to make it coherent with coop gameplay)
Rock, Paper, Shotgun - (Jim Rossignol)

Krater, the mildly disappointing post-apocalyptic dungeon-crawler, is getting a great big free update, including the much-needed addition of co-op play. Fatshark had this to say: “The update is not only adding coop to the game – we have also used this time to polish and add new content such as new characters, items and bosses. Its safe to say that the experience you get from playing the game in coop today compared to the single player game released June 12 is both different and better.”

You can read my comments on the original, pre-polish release version of the game here.
