We're happy to announce that DreadOut version 1.9.0 is available now. This new version brings major updates to DreadOut, with some of the biggest highlights being:
DreadOut engine is updated to prepare for our upcoming Act 2 release.
DreadOut Act 0 Prologue (which is also available separately as DreadOut Demo) is now integrated with the main game.
DreadOut Act 0 Prologue / Demo can be seen as an integral part of DreadOut story, so if you guys have not played the Demo yet, you can now revisit Linda's nightmare as a prologue for the Act 1 directly from the main menu.
DreadOut 1.9.0 is a new build with a completely new framework.
Be aware that this new release will be breaking your save game. So, if you're in the middle of playing Act 1, you may prefer to defer the update up until you've finished the game.
This new version discarded multi-language support for the time being, it will be incorporated again later.
This new version is asset-optimized for 32-bit system. Many 64-bit users might notice some textures' downgrade, we will resolve this issue with hi-res texture pack for 64-bit system later.
Updates to our Steam Cloud integration so users will not be required to have a file system friendly name anymore. This eliminates cases where some users were forced to rename their Steam's display name for the sake of playing DreadOut.
Some minor tweaks to DreadOut shaders and input system.
a new addition of experience setting, for turning on or off clue and ghost vignette, limbo distance, Limbo message etc. so that you guys can play it at your own preferences.
Hello everyone! In the spirit of the 2014 World Cup, we present Linda's 2 new unlockable tribute costumes; Brazilian and Indonesian team shirts.
Despite receiving mixed reviews, we are very glad to have such a lively community. All of your input will certainly help us in improving many aspects of our second act. We tried to accommodate many suggestions we've received in our current build. Our major update includes :
Availability in German and Italian.
Added invert controller axis feature.
Added support for keyboard/gamepad customization.
Ability to access the gameplay options menu during a game.
User interface and audio tweaking.
Various in game tweaks.
Some bug fixes.
We're still working on optimizing for the 32 bit platform support as well as the OpenGL version for Mac and Linux/SteamOS platform. It will be ready on our next major update once they are stable. Thank you for all of your support.
We have been receiving many input from our fans this week. And we have decided the following:
The 2nd act of DreadOut will be available as a free update (TBA) for every DreadOut purchaser on Steam.
The Free-Roam mode will be a paid DLC. It is a ghost hunting mode where all of the areas from the storyline gameplay will be accessible. This mode will feature many ghosts not included in the main story.
We are very sorry for the recent technical error on our part. For a few minutes, DreadOut was available for purchase. We have corrected this issue and now our release date has been reverted to our original plan, which will be on May 15th 2014.
Due to the nature of the premature release, you might experience some errors during your gameplay. We suggest you wait for the original release date to play the game. However, should you decide to play earlier, we hope you can keep the game updated so as to avoid unnecessary interruptions that might hinder your enjoyment.
We are truly sorry for the inconvenience. All the Best
