Sorry if this is answered regularly. I just did a forum search but I kept seeing things like 'is being worked on' or idea suggestions. I don't even need an exact date, more like a rough idea ie Xmas time, midnext year ect.

Cheers guys.

Could be this month or next month. (Next month because of first anniversary of the Level up DLC release from last year)

Soonish. We just got done with PAX and Gamescon where we had to mini crunch to get Heroes ready for both shows. Now the team has some more time to dedicate towards the upcoming KF update.

What kind of content are we expecting here?

I hate it when devs go all silent and mysterious about game updates.

Maybe some more weapons for each class, another character pack, some official maps, new boss, more specimens, stuff like that.

Suomis

Has someone said that there will not be? It has only been said that the firebug is getting an update and there will be a big balance. No-one has denied any of your things. + Firebug is getting new weapons (atleast I think that thats what they will do to the firebug). Doesnt that count?

Solona
09-13-2010, 11:04 AM
Well I've not read anything hinting at what I've said so I'm only expecting stuff that doesn't interest me.

Firebugs getting one new weapon/feature, perks are getting big tweaks in the interest of balance and multiple new maps are to be introduced. Don't expect anything as ambitious as new Specimins.

Suomis
09-13-2010, 09:24 PM
The kind you have to pay for probably.

Tripwire has yet to make an update you have to pay for... (The DLCs dont count since you dont NEED them), so I highly doubt that you have to pay for an update.

Maybe some more weapons for each class-

You're one of those dammed sharpshooters aren't you? :rolleyes:


The Firebug needs weapons more then any other perk. Next after that is Berserker (well, more reasons to use all of his weapons). Then the other classes can get some other stuff (wouldn't mind a 2nd or 3rd Medic weapon for instance). In my opinion Sharpshooter, Commando, and Support already have more then enough weapons, anything more would be a bonus.

And besides, balance updates are always good. There's always something that can be balanced better, something CS players don't understand (off-topic but I couldn't pass up another opportunity to bash the CS playerbase).



As for my guess as to when the update's going to be, "soonish" sounds like "not next month, but before the end of the year definitely". Certainly we can have a bit more patience at this point.

Maybe they should list every single little change they make then, eh?

So this game is dying with 5000 players? It was at 1500 a couple months ago, I'd say its growing with that kind of logic.

If you're actually a good player who can adapt your style and tactics, nearly every weapon in CS is balanced (against things in its class).

As for this update, I feel it to be long overdue. I'll give the game another go once it goes live to see if the fun is back.

'was' .. 'coming' is an interesting setup, which somehow makes me think again bout those horrible QM lectures with positrons jumping back in time.

Take in fact that all players are not playing at the same time. People quit and people go play. The peak doesnt tell the actual amount of active players.

The point is a game doesn't need 30,000 players to be fully alive. If you can find a game in 15 seconds like I can then its fine.

Well said. I just started playing again and I forgot how addictive this game was. I could wait a year for the next update by just playing with what we have now.

I hope they give me more levels or a new perk to level, it's a bit boring to be done. :( That's why I play for my brother sometimes. :)

KF needs some flying zeds with and without glue guns. When the flying glue gun zeds shoot you glue sticks you to the floor for a time depending on some other factor.

And

A safety ladder or jetpack so I stop falling out of windows backing up from the fleshpound.

The ladders like LEFT 4 DEAD?

XrAdEr, No more like a fire safety ladder so when I am falling out the window my character grabs on instead of freefalling unexpectedly. Or maybe a die hard setup so I can swing to the next floor. Not serious.

E1M1, good article. Glad you had success with Killing Floor and thank you. Very much enjoy the game.

Tripwire didn't need to charge for them either

TWI made them just so real fans could support them, they are not made for everyone to buy. If you dont buy them, you dont lose anything...

People who whine about KF\ TWI should die.
Seriously, Killing Floor is a GREAT game, and a game I would happily pay 50$ for, so to get it for 15$ (and that's assuming no one picked it up during one of the many sales) and to get a lot of DLC's for free and then whine is just a ♥♥♥♥♥ move. even the paid DLC's aren't a big deal since they are only skins and do not affect gameplay or split the community, like Suomis said, they are made to support the dev and that's why I bought both.
People should give more credit to TWI, they make great stuff, and support the stuff they make, I personally can't wait for their next game(s).

Yes. I myself got it a little cheaper since I prepurchased and there was a -15% sale or something...

I have RO, KF, the KF DLCs and I will buy ROHOS when it comes. Im a huge TWI fan even though I found out about TWI for the frist time when I bought KF :o

KF is my all time favourite game, and Ive been gaming for 9 or 10 years... I have 4-5 thousand hours of gaming in total, so saying a certain game is my favourite game actually is a lot.

Haven't you been playing for more than that? D:
I've got like 3600 hours in just Monster Hunter and I play a ♥♥♥♥load of other games.
