Door Kickers: Action Squad - Vulpe Nebuna

Effective immediately, the Off Duty Guy is part of your trooper roster, and you've got a new mission ahead of you - Chapter 7 - The Slums. It won't be easy and it won't be simple, its one of the toughest areas you've ever seen. But you've got the gear to take you through hell, or at least whatever you could find in your old duty bag.

Hold on, there's more. More gear for each of your old friends, and a special new bad guy waiting to kick you back to the precinct from whence you came. Oh, did we say one? There's also a new zombie waiting for those inclined to take trips on the dark side.

PSA - Since this is a Major Update, you may want to disable all mods if you're getting crashes or weird symptoms in the game.

Enough waiting, let's play now.

Door Kickers: Action Squad - Vulpe Nebuna
The day you've been waiting for is coming. Next week, Action Squad releases on consoles - XBox One and PS4 on the 24th, Nintendo Switch on the 28th.

The exact same experience you love on the PC translates to the new platforms, but there's also new content included, and it's coming back to PC on the exact same day:
  • one new playable character
  • 12 new playable levels
  • couple of new enemies
  • lots of goodies even for the old gang of troopers
  • more fun than you thought you'd get this year

Lock'n'load, mark the date, next week you're coming with us to hit the Slums.

Door Kickers: Action Squad - Pintea

Since the weekly challenge update last week, we've been going through all feedback and bug reports and making the game as sharp as possible, so keep those emails coming!
See below for the changelist.

However, if we stay silent for a while, it's because we want to keep ourselves completely focused on...

*drumroll* exciting new add-on with lots of content!
*drumroll again* releasing the game on consoles!
*drumroll again again* new games maybe!

We can't tell you yet exactly what new content and what consoles since that would spoil the surprise, but trust us with your patience and we will deliver!

Changelist v1.1.4
- Fixed not showing level reached in Coop Infinite Mode
- Added/changed/improved sounds
- Various other small fixes and improvements to user experience

Happy New Year, folks!

We've had a bit of fun with our families over the winter break, but now we're back - and here's your weekly challenge, as well as some fixes and new sounds.

To highlight a specific issue fixed, you should be able to run Vsync OFF with no more trouble.

Happy Hunting out there!

Door Kickers: Action Squad - Vulpe Nebuna

It's Christmas! It's a time for love and giving, so give them hell in the Newly inaugurated Infinity Tower. What goes on in there, anyway? Nobody knows! How tall is it? It's still mystery ...

The real question is How high can YOU go?

Quick points:
- This is a one-way raid and there's no return. The only way is UP.
- You're cutoff from supplies so enemy kills don't give Strategic Points.
- Every five floors there should be a bunch of hostages to rescue. Higher up they become scarcer so spend those points wisely.
- We've also revamped the lighting system and its much more natural now.
- Door Kickers 2 is still in development.

Let us know how you liked this little surprise, and whether we should add more stuff to it, or maybe we should instead concentrate on more zombie stuff ... errr ... I mean handcrafted missions.

Merry Christmas - and a Happy New Year!

Yesterday's update adds a bit of "behind the scenes" changes to the game and allows you to create, upload or enjoy mods of all types, not just levels as we've had until now.

For example, here's a mod that changes the in-game HUD character portraits:

And here's a little mod by sneaky Red Panda that just removes the star costs for all weapons and equipment in the game:

And here's the beginning of something interesting - Mario meets Action Squad!

You can do lots of cool stuff!

Would you like to know more? We have this handy workshop guide for you, right over here:

So, get reading, have fun modding, share with the world and ask around for advice :)

Your dev team, always here.

And now for your regular Weekly News!

Even though we released the workshop and you should definitely check out the levels over there, we haven't forgotten the weekly challenge - and now you have it!

This time, it's Fergie that's on call. Post your Winning Screen with the medal, and the fastest time wins an extra DKAS key :)

G'day you Action-hungry folk!

The Steam Workshop is ready and the Mission Editor is up in official manner. We even put one Showcase Level up in the Workshop, so head over there and download it quickly, before supplies run out. (I kid, I kid).

Shortcut this way:

The Workshop supports game levels, which you can subscribe to and will promptly appear in your in-game Workshop menu to enable/disable at will. And then you will find them in the Workshop Chapter at the end of the "Chapter Selection Screen" and you can play them at will.
The Workshop also supports game changing mods. Head over here for more info on this topic:

As for the Level Editor, it's well hidden in your Steam Install folder, specifically in this location:

SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Door Kickers Action Squad\tools\ActionSquadEd.exe

The Editor loads by default a handy "almost empty new level" that should give you a headstart for your designs. The whole tool is a little light on documentation but we'll provide more in the following weeks - though it's not rocket science, in any case. Just study or modify the existing game levels :)

Once you're happy with your work, there's a handy "Workshop Mod Uploader" button in its menu, and you can share your creation with the world.

Have fun, be creative, and expect a "Best Level" Contest soon :)

Action Squad Weekly News!

Still no workshop release today (let's just say the authorities delayed us a bit with some routine but unplanned paperwork) but your challenge for week 5 is now up!

We still have a contest but the rules are now different. Post your Winning Screen with both medals, and the top 3 fastest times win extra DKAS keys :)

Good luck - you might need it!

Your devs @ KHG and PixelShard
