We’ve been diggin’ in our boot heels to bring you the next update to Hopalong: The Badlands! The Badlands now runs much smoother on lower end machines and a whole army of bugs have been hunted down and brought to justice. A full changelog can be found below.

Hopalong: The Badlands Post Release Update v1.01 - 1/29/18
- Optimization for lower end machines
- Bug Fixes
- Bug removal
- Overall mass exodus of bugs
- Reinstated bandit curfew. Obviously they were not ready for that responsibility

Lower End Machine Optimization
The darndest thing, we were enjoying a fine day out on the Badlands when we came across a hang up for low end CPUs and thought: “By George we could fix that there issue!” So we did. We have added stereo instancing to reduce draw calls and increase performance for lower end CPUs, so you can focus less on performance and more on slinging lead.

And that’s all for now Western fans! Be sure to follow us on Twitter @fromfuturegames for all your VR, Badlands, and general tech news and Future updates!
Hopalong: The Badlands - From the Future
More shiny than a sheriff’s spurs and twice as deadly, Hopalong: The Badlands is now fully released! We have been placing cacti, revving up tumbleweeds, and getting them Boomity boys in makeup as fast as we’ve been able to bring you the roughest, toughest, kookiest Western VR shooter this side of the Mississippi! And on the other side for that matter.
We cannot thank our community enough for your support throughout our development process. We have taken your feedback from the Early Access and have created a bigger, better Badlands. Be sure to keep up with us here on Steam and give more feedback in the weeks to come!

New Weapons
Bring a whole new definition to lead slinging with the Iron Falcon. All the power of a cannon in the hand of a lawman that knows how to put a bandit in the dirt! Whether your target is scrawny or brawny, this hand cannon knows just the right sized hole for his dirt nap.
The caves in the Badlands can get a tad dark at times, but a Sheriff has nothing to fear with The Brimstone Gun on his back. Shed a little light on even the darkest depths and maybe even a Bandit or two along the way.



New Enemy: The Heavy
Twice as mean as a normal Boomity boy and four times the size, The Heavy is sure to give a challenge to even the most veteran arm of the law. Be sure to keep your peepers peeled for this hefty fella out in those cliffs, Sheriff. Oh and, duck if you get the chance.



New Canyon Chapter
There’ve been rumors about just how deep the cliffs of the Badlands go, and now we know for sure. Complete with perilous heights, dangerous caverns, and sprawling wooded landscapes, The Canyon Chapter expansion is sure to test just how far you can dish out justice. Watch yer’ step!



Happy Hoppin’!
