Outbreak has been released! Introducing Mutant Factions v0.9

Wed 30 Oct 2013, 15:42 by bencelot



After 8 long months of development the zombie-slaughtering game mode is finally here! Mutant Factions version 0.9 has improvements all across the board, but by far the biggest item in this release is Outbreak. Outbreak finally introduces a PvE element to the game, allowing us to team up and cooperatively use our skills against hordes of zombies like never before. It's a whole new experience just waiting to be explored and mastered, so download the latest version now and get started! Here is a quick list of all the major improvements in Mutant Factions v0.9 (check the changelog for details):

- Outbreak: The zombie slaughtering game mode that completely redefines the way the game is played.
- New Name: The game has been renamed from Subvein to Mutant Factions.
- Bounty System: A new bounty system that rewards mercenaries money for assassinating specific enemies.
- Map Editor changes: Plenty of changes to the map editor to create much nicer looking environments.
- Community Credits: New community credits as well as additional options on how to display them.
- New Maps: Many maps have been updated to be sexier, bigger, and more vehicle friendly.
- New Skill Unlocker: A new in-game skill unlock system that drastically streamlines the skill unlocking process.
- Gameplay Changes: Drastic gameplay changes such as 40% faster bullets, larger players, and a huge boost to long range fighting.
- Improved Netcode: Improvements to the smoothness of netcode and hitdetection.
- Skill Redesigns: A number of skills have been redesigned to create more interesting and balanced skill combos.
- Balancing: Extensive balancing based on 8 months worth of stats tracking and community feedback.
- Bug Fixes: Plenty of bugs have been fixed making the overall playing experience a lot nicer.

And there's plenty more too. Check the changelog for details but most importantly download the game and try it out for yourself! Please leave feedback in the forums so we can fine-tune and polish this version up in preparation for version 0.91. When version 0.91 comes out I will do some advertising to get more players into the community. As soon as the game is ready I'll do this, so the faster you provide feedback the better. Anyway, thank you all for being patient with me. I know this version took a very long time. But it's here now so enjoy!

Note: This release will require you to download the game from the website. The auto updater has been disabled for this version because the name of the game has changed and it requires a fresh install. Fortunately the file size is still very small so it shouldn't take more than a few minutes.

Daaaayyyuuuuuum, Bence! This Outbreak looks sooo sexy!

Despite all the time that we've been waiting for it and lack of active players, I think it still worth playing.

Just played for a minute or so and I can't wait to play it online!

Also gonna update my Refuge and GangWars maps ASAP :D

Oh and gonna help you out with some advertising. Hopefuly russian (at least) community is still there, willing to kick some zombie asses. :)

Great Job, Bence! Keep it up!

Thanks man :)

Now that Outbreak is finally out I'll be doing some advertising as well. It's been a lonnnnnnnnng time since I last advertised (v0.6) so it'll be good to get some new players into the game. I just want to polish Outbreak up a little bit first and get the feedback from the community, then I'll release version 0.91 and start advertising. This should all be done within a week or 2. It's gunna be goood!
