Hey Everyone!

Our latest patch is now live! Update 15 brings many new shiny features and content, including new Weapons, Items, a brand new Prestige system for dedicated players, as well as balancing changes. On top of that we reworked the networking code to allow everybody to play co-op!

Here’s the full list of changes (brace yourself, it’s a big one!):

You can now “Prestige” a class at class level 25, resetting the class level and granting a prestige level. The first prestige grants a small bonus for all classes and first and second grant a small cosmetic effect.

New Prestige Shop Menu (Unlocked by research)
Allows the purchase of:
  • Mystery Boost (now has 6 different effects).
  • Re-roll Daily Modules
  • Class EXP Token
  • Class Prestige

You can now unlock special run modes, which will change the essence of the game
For your singleplayer runs. These are all paid for in the prestige shop.

  • Madness Run (reward for defeating the end boss).
  • Faster, more enemies, slightly more damage, high alert

  • Hyper Adrenaline Run (reward for beating the end boss twice).
  • High tension, Deal extreme damage and take extreme damage

  • Tactical Run (Reward for beating 50 Bosses).
  • Slower and more tactical, focus on headshots

The first version of the relay servers is now live!
A lot of netcode has been reworked for this and as a result, networking performance also has improved.

This solves all connection issues by connecting through a server of ours. The game will then try to connect directly to the other player with the old system to improve the ping but the server makes sure all traffic reaches its destination. We have a western European server live, but we’ll have even more coming soon.

This also means that we are not using the engines hosting functionality anymore, which means Players with IPv6 addresses can now host games.

  • Removed the delay between dashing.
  • Multiplayer pickup drop modifier increased from 35% > 45% of singleplayer value
  • Multiplayer ammo pickup amount increased
  • Increased spawn amount in Military Floor slightly and decreased enemy health by 15%.
  • Mystery chest can no longer cost 400.
  • Increased chest’s open ranges.
  • Max health stat upgrade now also heals for the same amount of health.

  • Curse of the Flesh now also grants 2 vial charges and more ammo.
  • Drop Chance for Artefact, Ammo Type, and Class Perk chest increased from 0.1 to 0.4.

  • New Terminal - Supply Hack Weapon Shop (Selection of 3 Supply Hack weapons).
  • New Terminal - Supply Hack Item Shop (Selection of 3 Supply Hack items).

  • Shop Prices now start at 75% and raise by 5% after each room!
  • Item and weapon shops now only sell Epic+ items when in third or fourth floor.
  • Item and weapon shops no longer sell double items.
  • Item terminals now always have a supply token item, similar to weapon shops.

  • Mystery Boost removed - Level-up on class level cap now grants a data reward.
  • Reduced costs on some research in the research menu.
  • Daily reward EXP greatly increased.

  • Healing stat now shows effective healing.
  • Stored EXP is now shown in main menu.

1985. After many years of slavery, the AI servants of Kaida Corporation, the world leader in robotics, have formed the "Machine Legion" and have set out to destroy humanity. Awakening in Kaida Corp. Headquarters, you are the human consciousness of a forgotten Android prototype; the last straw holding the Legion from unleashing the Heart of Armageddon. Only you can battle through the levels of Kaida Corporation's Headquarters, defeat the battalions of enemies within and put an end to this madness.
