SPRING MEGA UPDATE!




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!):




PRESTIGE SHOP
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



SPECIAL MODES
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

NEW RELAY SERVER SYSTEM
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.





GAMEPLAY
