Beta v1.06 Release

November 19th, 2012 by Xendrid

Where is Greenlight?!

Many of you have been wondering when our game will be available on Steam. We are working closely with Valve on making this a reality. We should be ready to launch on Steam with our next patch! We plan on making 1.07 our biggest patch yet. As development happens, we will throw up some videos on our YouTube channel.

Tired of Survival? Don't worry! nay0r, Lou Saffire, and thegregster are working on fresh objective maps. That doesn't mean we won't be giving you more Survival content though. Shirk is finalizing his map deemed Suburb Survival. In the next few weeks we will be showing you some screenshots and videos of those so keep a vigilant eye out.

As for the present, here is Beta 1.06 featuring two new weapons, a new blood tech, and saying goodbye to a lot of old Half-Life 2 content!

If you experience problems with the patch, try installing the full 1.06 client and see if that resolves any issues. If using the 'G' key for throwing weapons does not work, rebind the command in the console:

bind g +dropweapon

Ammo Checking & Voice Sets

We added the ability to customize your character with different voice sets as well as tailoring the way you want your ammo checking to be.

You may have noticed from the changelog that we updated a lot of our sound effects, replacing some that were vanilla Half-Life audio. Last month we introduced Tom 'rezOnance' Wright to the team. He has been helping revamp a lot of the foley and sound effects within the game, and made a blog post about creating some of these sick sounds! Check it out here. Tom also put together a little video of the new sounds added to 1.06. Listen to some heads pop!

Stay alive!
