The End of Halloween and Double XP Weekend Event

Hi all,

We’ve left you in the dark without any updates or communications about what’s happening with Deceit. So first thing, we’re sorry.

We’ve been putting a lot of resource into Mavericks: Proving Grounds and this has left our team thin-on-the-ground, to say the least. Not an excuse, just a reason. You have bought into a game and we should have kept you all informed.

So what’s coming up for Deceit? Immediately, many of you will be happy to know that Halloween has finally finished. Whilst we aren’t going to be running any Christmas events, we are going to be holding a Double-XP weekend event this weekend from 00:00 GMT 22/12/18 till 23:59 GMT 23/12/18.

Staff will be taking some time off over the holiday period for some well-deserved rest, and we are looking to bring further updates to Deceit in the New Year.

We’re still in the process of developing the Lumberyard map and would like to grant assurances that it will be coming in the new year.

Halloween, DLC and New Map!

Hey Everyone,

Buckle up guys, this is one hair-raising update! Today marks the beginning of our Halloween event, Vampire DLC pack and New Map!

Halloween Event: Trick or Treat

We’re releasing a wide variety of unique cosmetic seasonal rewards alongside some spooky map decorations and another chance to play with the development team so make sure you’re online!

How you gain those sweet Halloween rewards:
Want to unlock exclusive Halloween rewards? All you need to do is keep your eyes open for delicious in game candy. Collect the candy and it’ll turn into Halloween points; earn enough and you’ll unlock some sweet rewards. To make things a little more difficult the smaller candy rewards the most points, so look for the toffee apples and elusive golden gummy bears if you want to unlock everything as fast as possible.

The types of candy and size classifications are as follows:
  • 2 Points - Big Gummy Bears (Huge)
  • 4 Points - Bowl of Sweets (Large)
  • 6 Points - Chocolate Bars (Medium)
  • 10 Points - Toffee Apples (Small)
  • 20 Points - Golden Gummy Bears (Tiny)

Lastly there will also be special loot booth tokens available during the holiday. Each loot booth reward comes with a number of Halloween points based on its tier, meaning that even common unlocks can help you chase down Halloween legendary items before the end of the holiday.

Additionally, there are some performance based bonuses outlined below:
  • When escaping as an innocent player you will receive an additional 50% points on top of whatever you have picked up in the game.
  • When executing an innocent as an infected player you will receive an additional 25% points per execution on top of whatever you have picked up in the game.

What are the new rewards?
This year’s event rewards will be visible in the event screen which is available in the top left of the main menu. You can also use this to track your progress towards the next reward and your overall progress throughout the event.

To spend Halloween Tokens simply go to the loot booth as normal and select a Halloween Token to give to the shady dealer.

Vampire DLC Pack

With the Vampire Expansion, you will be able to prey on innocent victims as you transform into the exclusive Vampire Terror form! This terror form offers a brand new terror tactic through its active: the Swarm.

When used, the Vampire temporarily shape-shifts into a swarm of bats to traverse the vent system at hellish speed leaving a puff of smoke in your wake. Know where the innocents are hiding or need a quick getaway from those trying to down you? The “Swarm” active places you exactly where you want to be almost instantly to give you that terror advantage.

Additionally, when playing as an innocent you’ll gain access to an exclusive new Stake melee weapon to defend yourself against deadly vampiric attacks.

The Vampire pack also includes an exclusive Vampire Emblem, 10 loot booth tokens to help you get even more cosmetic gear for your character and 200 GM tokens to put towards your next item or use with the Reputation system to show appreciation to your favourite fellow players.

This pack contains:
  • Exclusive: Playable Vampire Terror
  • Exclusive: ‘You Suck’ T-shirt
  • Exclusive: Stake Melee Weapon
  • Exclusive: Vampire Emblem
  • 10 Loot Booth Tokens
  • 200 GM Credits

Linked to this we’ve added a special something for those people who unlock both the Vampire and Werewolf packs. Do this and you’ll get your hands on a traditional Japanese sword known as the Wakizashi; a new legendary melee weapon!

Lumberyard Map (Coming Soon)

Last but definitely not least, a new map we’re calling The Lumberyard!

We’re making our final polishes (to the wood) and will talk more about it leading up to the release very soon.

About This Game

Deceit tests your instincts at trust and deception in an action-filled, multiplayer first-person shooter. You wake up in unknown surroundings to the sound of the Game Master’s unfamiliar voice. Surrounded by five others, a third of your group have been infected with the Game Master’s deadly virus and tasked with taking down the other innocent players. Innocents must stay alert, traverse the three zones and escape through the safety hatch as the infected try to pick you off one by one.

When playing as an innocent, you’ll progress through the map and come across items to help you survive as you advance towards the exit. However, you will need to decide which of these are most valuable to you, and whether to collaborate or fight with other players to get your hands on them. Every decision gives you more information on your teammates and what side they’re likely to be on.

A test of strategy and skill, innocents must work work together to gather weapons, secure objectives and vote out those suspected of infection to strengthen their chances of survival. But the environment has been setup to cause conflict amongst the group, creating doubt about the true intentions of players. The infected will be busy collecting bloody and trying to cover up their sabotage attempts, whilst the innocents will be keeping an eye out for suspicious behaviour and attempting to make alliances with those they think they can trust.

At the end of each zone, a blackout period occurs, allowing the infected players to transform into their terror form and attack. You’ll need this form to kill innocent players. In terror form you’re faster, stronger, and have better vision than your innocent victims and with an array of intense killing animations you’ll be able to create some frightening but also amusing gameplay!

Deceit combines the frenzy of fast paced combat mixed with strategic gameplay, and of course the psychological mind games of determining who you can trust.
