Patch 1.1 - "The Mega Patch"



Hey everyone!

Been working on some big changes to BTV over the past couple of months, hopefully changes that will make the core experience more enjoyable. I've simplified a lot of systems and tried to reduce overall downtime. Most of the issues people had were centred around the survival and crafting mechanics, so naturally those two aspects have seen the most changes.

***PLEASE READ***

The new patch should update your save files to be compatible with the new systems, however I can't test every possible scenario, so if you encounter an issue when trying to load a save file and you don't want to lose your progress to date, please e-mail me your save files and I'll do my best to fix them.

Saves can be found in C:\Users\(UserName)\AppData/LocalLow/Incubator Creations/BeyondTheVeil/Saves.

Patch Notes

  • Grit and Focus have been folded into Life and Will respectively to simplify character progression.
  • Life is not consumed when travelling to regions, rather it specifies a maximum travel distance from the current region.
  • Using the compass consumes Will.
  • Hunger and Thirst have been removed- there is no longer a time pressure to stay alive. Food and Water instead recover Life and Grit.
  • Weapon Strength has been removed, you no longer need to channel Essence to maintain weapons and they will not lose potency.
  • Inscriptions can be stacked for greater customisation of weapons.
  • Adrenaline has been removed. Dealing damage to enemies reduces the cooldown on skills (now known as charge). Using a skill resets the cooldown of all skills simultaneously.
  • Human enemies are more mobile and aggressive, but deal less damage.
  • Combat encounters are larger.
  • Armour now has 5 tiers instead of 10.
  • Crafting resources are rarer.
  • The fire does not need to be lit to start crafting.
  • The meditate action has been removed.
  • Enemy bullets are slower so you can actually dodge them.
  • Maps have fewer regions.
  • Skills are now unlocked by defeating bosses.
  • Weapons now have a fixed Recoil value.
  • Weapons have a new Range attribute that affects how far the bullets travel before being destroyed.
  • Added some fancy particle effects to the skill bar.
  • Petted the dog.
  • Improved performance of lighting.
  • Updated layout of some menus to improve readability.
  • Improved dismantle system to generate better rewards.
  • Updated tutorial to reflect changes.

As well as the above are QOL features, bugfixes, and balance details.

Have a great week, and a great summer!

About This Game

"Though this world is dying, it can be saved. Once abandoned by the gods, we can bring them back. We must travel together across the wasteland, find the tombs in which they rest, and wake them before all is lost for good. Come with me Wanderer, recover what was taken from me, and I will help return what was lost to you."
- The Necromancer



Beyond the Veil is an RPG/top-down-shooter hybrid set in a dark fantasy world that explores themes of loss, grief and more. Players take on the role of the wanderer who must travel through ancient lands on a quest to awaken sleeping gods and drive corruption from the earth. Players will need to fight tooth and nail for survival and scavenge the world for resources in order to survive.

The world of the Beyond the Veil is harsh, and its inhabitants no less so. Amongst tumbled ruins and under searing suns, bloody battles will be fought against man, beast, and nightmares themselves. Combat in Beyond the Veil is tough and fast-paced. Inspired by atmospheric survival games, expect a unique but familiar experience.



A Rich Story

Explore the narrative of Beyond the Veil, uncover what happened to the gods, and why you are here. Find others in the wasteland to help you, and listen to their stories.



Procedural Maps

Discover the secrets of the five kingdoms of the gods. Procedural maps make each playthrough unique, presenting different advantages and challenges as you explore. From rain and fog to lightning storms and hurricanes, the dynamic weather system can upset even the best-made plans.



RPG Mechanics

Develop characters as you see fit. Take on trials to increase their stats or give them powerful passive abilities. Equip a plethora of different weapons, accessories, and inscriptions to give you an edge in combat.



Top-down combat

Fight hordes of enemies in real-time, bloody combat. Use weapons, skills, and the environment to your advantage to survive. Movement and awareness are key to survival, but fleeing is always an option when things get too tough.

System Requirements

    Minimum:
    • Memory: 1 GB RAM
    • Storage: 500 MB available space
