Redout Patch 1.6.2

A total of 22 changes from version 1.6.1 to version 1.6.2

Redout WeirdBugsBegone™ Edition: Minor Fixes and leaderboards reset

IMPORTANT: INCOMING LEADERBOARDS RESET!
As you known, Redout has been evolving and changing quite a lot since our initial release. Meta balancing, bugfixes, huge changes in the physics system imply a huge load of testing to make sure everything runs smoothly and fairly for everyone. We have been working as much as possible to keep things in balance so far, but some of the biggest changes had a more sensible impact over the balancing of the game. We are letting you prepare for a massive leaderboards reset event happening with the next update, which, as you know by now, will happen Soon™.

PORTALS OPTIMISATIONS
We know the portals have been one of the features in Redout interesting enough to even create a novel game mode to show them off: the Boss Mode. At the same time, they have been one of our biggest challenges in terms of optimisations. Your CPUs and GPUs should be happy to know we are using their resources in a new way: less intensive, leaner, without touching the visual fidelity.

BUGFIXING
  • Fixed issue for which the AP effect would disappear if dying with EMG on.
  • Fixed explosion when flying over a portal in Neptune.
  • Fixed weird trajectory deviation that would rarely happen when passing a portal flying.
  • Fixed some LOD switching in Cairo and Neptune.
  • Fixed a botched normal on Conqueror Class4 engine.
  • Fixed a sloppy Traditional Chinese string translation (Thanks Kannushi Link!).
  • HDR turned off when starting the game in VR.
  • Double-checked and enforced anonymization in our analytics and leaderboard system, in compliance with GDPR. Sorry Blu.

Redout Patch 1.6.1

A total of 37 changes from version 1.6.0 to version 1.6.1

Redout 2018-7™ Edition: Lots of fixes, new colors, FoveVR support

NEW FEATURES && IMPORTANT UPDATES
  • 6 new ship color schemes for all your ships (Neo, Cipher, Braid, Deception, Entropy, Paradox).
  • Added support to FoveVR.

GENERAL IMPROVEMENTS
  • New Traditional Chinese Translation, our friends from Taiwan and China will be happy for this! Just in time for the holidays!
  • Many fixes and improvements for VR support.
  • In some occasions the new guardrails would generate artifacts, no more.
  • The opponent indicators were using *a lot* of your PC resources, probably to mine something. Now they understood life is more than greed and hording.

BUGFIXING
  • Ninja ships were slowing taking over your garage. Ninja ships are extremely dangerous and must be removed at first sight. We deployed Samurai ships to defend your garages and top notch security has been guaranteed by the SRRL.
  • You can finally read the lore behind Rotorua and Sequoia environments.
  • Some UI components were left on screen when the race ended. Fixed.
  • Rotorua gravity anomalies did interfere with the SRRL lap counters under specific conditions. Lap counters are now completely shielded from radioactive and gravitational anomalies.
  • Fixed infamous "Glowing Caves Survival" Event.
  • A weird bug could block your game in the pause menu during a race. It's fixed now.
  • An invisible boostpad on Neptune has been restored to his original form. Ninja boost pads are less dangerous than ninja ships, but the improved security should help most situations anyway.

Reviews

“Redout delivers excitement I haven’t felt since Nintendo released the last great F-Zero title over a decade ago. I don’t know if it’s the best racer I’ve ever played, but it’s almost certainly the most exhilarating, and earns its place among the very games it takes inspiration from.”
9.5 / 10 – Game Critics

“Fast, hard and really impressive, Redout is a perfect heir to the greatest arcade racing games. A delightful challenge that will test your skills and it will cause to overflow your adrenaline.”
9 / 10 – Meristation

“We are looking at an AG Racer which quality level is outstanding”

About This Game

NEXT GENERATION AG RACING IS HERE!
Redout is a tribute to the old racing monsters such as F-Zero, WipeOut, Rollcage, and POD. It is designed to be an uncompromising, fast, tough and satisfying driving experience, soaked in that vertigo that stands at the core of the arcade racing genre. The floating system and driving models are based on physics: each turn, slope, hard braking, acceleration, each turn and twist of the track will apply a unique force to the ship. A sharp low-polygon style blends meshes and terrains with the latest state-of-the-art shading and lighting effects provided by the Unreal Engine 4, creating beautiful and instantly recognisable aesthetics. Breezy coastlines, eerie frozen landscapes, vast desert plains: the melancholic, dystopian atmosphere of a semi abandoned Earth is the background for the most high-speed, tense and beautiful futuristic racing clashes.

Features

  • Online multiplayer - match against 12 players around the world for a real challenge
  • Optional VR Support - Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or OSVR. With a new shiny cockpit view!
  • Career mode - 100+ events to race, experience, level up and upgrade your ship
  • A Diverse World - 25 tracks scattered around 5 locations on a post-apocalyptic Earth, plus boss circuits
  • Never bored - 11 event types, from classic Race to innovative Arena Race and Score-Based Endurance
  • Create your story - 6 racing teams, each requiring a different driving approach, and 4 increasingly fast racing classes
  • Powerup - 10+ racing-focused, upgradable powerups: additional turbo, shields, self-repair drone, advanced grip system, slipstream enhancers, and more
  • Music for your ears - full 5.1 support and a dynamic soundtrack that will drop sicker and sicker beats the faster you go!

Speed

Redout is the fastest game ever made. If you can handle it. It's not about the numbers you see on screen, it's about the vibrations, the landscape and buildings flying by, the high-speed collisions, the effects, the sounds, the immersion: everything is meant to feel like you're going FAST.

Online Multiplayer

Challenge up to 12 players from all over the world and find out who's the best Redout pilot in history! Do you think you have got what it takes? Prove it. True glory is a flame lighted at the skies.

Dynamic Soundtrack

Prepare your ears for one of the most intense dynamic soundtracks you have ever heard. Redout enhances your experience and transcends visuals, immersing yourself in a mixture of sounds and music that adapts to your playstyle and your performance on the track.

Immersive VR

We have been working hard to give you the best VR game yet. Get inside your HMD to experience 3D and distances like never before, you'll know exactly where the apex is and feel a whole new level of control. VR support is optional.

Handling

Control is the most important feeling when you are racing at 800km/h. Redout features believable physics derived from quad-copters controllers and real magnetic forces. We came up with the next generation in AG handling. There's always a way to face a corner without braking, but you have to prepare for it and use everything you've got. Steer, strafe and turbo out of a corner are the basics: upgrades and powerups will grant you even more control on your ship's behaviour. You'll need to dominate your ship before you face the advanced tracks.

Thriving Discord Community

Whatever you are in for a casual multiplayer match or just for some chitchatting during a break, the official Discord server is there for you: https://discord.me/redout! Join our community and get to know some of the people who helped shaping Redout's lore and ecosystem, on top of getting exclusive information about development and previews on what's happening inside the Redout Universe.

A Rich Context

AD 2560.
Earth stripped of its natural resources. Global warming caused the melting of the northern polar ice cap, tropical storms ravage all areas that didn’t suffer from desertification.
Pockets of humans are crawling their lives away in a few slums, descendants of those who were left behind or refused to leave. Others created huge conurbations, based upon some of the most populous cities once on Earth. Most of humanity, though, has moved on the Moon, Mars, Titan, and other Jupiter’s moons. Earth is often used as a location for entertainment events like hi-speed races, futuristic amusement parks and zoo parks, which allows local communities to work and profit in a harsh environment.
One of the most popular sports is the SRRL, or Solar Redout Racing League: the fastest racing league ever created, where humanity's best pilots drive high speed anti-gravity ships on magnetic tracks, risking their lives at each and every corner, in exchange for neverending glory.
