Product Update - Valve
Apr 4, 2011
Updates to Nation Red have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

  • Added 4-player multiplayer, with full featured Steam lobbies, gamebrowsing, friends invites and chat.
  • Support for 4 player classes: Apart from class attributes, classes have their preferred weapons and perk specials.
  • Added the MGL 6-shot 40mm grenade launcher weapon. Tweaked the m107 sniper rifle.
  • Shared XP is now selectable in 2-4 player games. Selecting this will pool all your Xp and you will level up together. The game leader can pause the game to allow everyone to select a perk. This allows for more strategic games since players won't need to quickly choose a perk while cloaked. Regular cloaked games are also available.
  • In non-shared XP games, cloak will disappear as soon as a perk is chosen.
  • Now uses the new driverless PhysX version. All necessary .dlls are included in the game distribution.
  • Added 'static gui' option. Set this to On to have a low movement video background instead of the default video.
  • Menu options improved. You no longer need to click on or near the actual text. You can navigate menus much faster.
  • Increased perk choices from 5 to 7 numbered slots which can be selected by keys 1-7 so the mouse aim doesn't need to leave the game area.
  • Added player level system which allows players to rank through eight levels:
    • 1 private: 5 achievements / 5000 zombies killed
    • 2 private first class: 10 achievements / 10000 zombies killed
    • 3 specialist: 15 achievements / 50000 zombies killed / get to perk level 10
