1.07.9 Update ReleasedMarch 7th, 2014 by Brentonator
1.07.9 is finally out. It introduces a new weapon, a new survival map, a new objective map, a few dozen fixes, and an easier way to get into the game.
Camp Blood - A lakeside camping trip gone wrong, you're the only survivors left and there are rumors of a horde of zombies coming your way. Fight your way to an interesting (and sometimes hillarious) ending.

Junction - An amazing new objective map with an exciting ending made possible by ThoughT's excellent music composition and Hypnosis' level design.
Server Tags - You can now quickly find servers where you can spawn after connecting. Click "Add common tags..." on the bottom right of the server browser and select "Spawning:Active" to list only servers where there are at least 25 seconds left to spawn.
We haven't talked much about the future plans of NMRiH, so let's do that real quick, shall we? Our top priority right now is useability. We realize that people are frustrated with too much downtime during death and waiting for new rounds to begin. In 1.07.9 we introduced the very first step (a small one albeit) in making the game easier to play, thus more fun. The common tags mentioned above. This is just a small thing and we have bigger changes and improvements planned. We have listened to the feedback over this, but if you'd like to further discuss it head over to our Forum!
As for second priorities, new content is always being created. We have a couple new features that are close to done, but we don't want to make any promises or tease anything until we have them actually in the game and ready.As always, thanks for playing!
