Minor Bug Fix - Build 1.3.1

Hello Murderous Pursuers,

Don't get too excited! Our next update isn't out until the end of July but meanwhile we're still working hard on fixing all of those niggly little bugs.

There is a minor change between this version and 1.3.0:

  • The new target lock icon should now appear correctly with medium and low graphics settings applied.

As one of most requested features to be added to the game by you, we hope that you’ve been enjoying being able to target your foes with accuracy and precision!

Don’t forget, our June update went live last week which includes the free for all game mode, a new map, brand new perks system and more.

Thank you to everyone who continues to support Murderous Pursuits, you can follow us on our social accounts to keep up with the latest news:

It's heating up in Update 1.3.0...

Hello Murderous Pursuers,

Grab your weapons and brace yourselves, our third update has landed! From an additional game mode to a brand new perks system, Update 3 provides you with an even fuller Murderous Pursuits experience and more ways to impress Mr. X

Enjoy! :steamhappy:



Chrono Capacitor Level
Deep down in the Brittanic's underbelly is the Chrono Capacitor, the technological marvel that allows the ship to travel through time itself. What better spot for some murderous fun?

Free-For-All game mode
Mr X has grown weary of simply giving you one quarry to kill to satisfy his bloodlust, but be cautious as everyone else now also has their eye on you... Free-For-All mode makes all players in the game a valid target!

Target Lock
You asked for it, you got it! Lock on to other players from distance or in a crowd using the right mouse button, so your killing blow no longer finds an unwanted target.

Perks System
Perks will passively alter how your game plays, from always spawning with a 5 favour weapon to respawning as a random character whenever you are killed.

Disrupt Ability
Scramble the HUD of nearby players so they won't see you coming with this devilishly delightful new ability.

New Model Swaps
Introducing the Soothsayer and Moujik on board H.M.C.S. Brittanic to enjoy the sights and sounds only a humungeous time traveling flying ship can provide. Well... until you murder them, of course.

About This Game

Murderous Pursuits is a kill-or-be-killed stealth-em-up multiplayer game for 1-8 players. Smartly stalk your target – the Victorian’s call that Quarry - and wait for just the right moment to pounce on your prey. But be careful not to give yourself away to the other players hunting you!

Act like an unassuming passenger to avoid revealing yourself, locate high-scoring weapons, and stalk and kill your targets in a manner that befits your station as a 'right dodgy villain'.

The Best – And Smartest - Killer Wins

Gain the highest number of points by the end of the round to win. Optimize your points by finding higher value weapons and keeping your exposure low, all while scoring glorious kills. Be too careful and you’ll fall behind. Be too bold and other hunters will take advantage.

Employ a variety of abilities, including disguise, flash, and counter, to outmanoeuvre your adversaries and carry out your diabolical plan.

Track and Avoid

Use the Quarry Tracker to locate your target. Keep an eye on the Hunter Indicator to avoid getting killed. But beware as your Quarry may be watching too.

Keep your cool and use the busy passenger environments to your advantage by hiding in plain sight. Forget to blend in and you’ll raise your exposure, revealing yourself to your Quarry, and your Hunter.

Watch Out For The Guards

Guards are on board to keep the passengers safe. Beware: they are on the lookout for killers. Anyone caught in the act will be stalled and left open to attack from other hunters.

Take your pick from a line-up of eight nefarious killers – each as deadly as the next. From the cold and calculating Duchess to the wise-guy Dodger, it is your choice of which version of evil you feel will serve you best.

Prove Yourself

Climb the ranks to become number 1 in the world for most number of kills... or most number of pies eaten!

Key Features:
    • Play solo or online with up to 8 players, featuring support for custom game options and wickedly intelligent bots. Identify your quarry, plan their extravagant murder and set it into motion, all before another player wises up and does the same to you!
    • Hunt in four sumptuous locations aboard the HMCS Britannic - a state-of-the-art, colonial time ship. Blend in with the festivities in the richly decorated Music Hall or wait in the dark corners of the Engine House to pounce on your prey
    • Choose from eight playable characters. Pick your preferred archetype and skin, then blend in with the crowd to avoid detection
    • Master the use of five abilities – only two of which can be chosen each match, so choose wisely
    • Earn favour to win - Simple killing won’t cut it. Be discreet, commandeer a high-value weapon, strike quickly and dance over your Quarry’s lifeless body to earn Mr. X’s ultimate favour
    • Prove yourself – skill-based matchmaking will ensure you face appropriate opponents, so no slacking!
