I am pleased to announce that we have two new weapons entering the fight, with a new weapon for each front! First heading towards the eastern front we have the PPS sub machine gun for the Russians. The PPS was designed as a low cost, easy to produce replacement for the PPsH-41, albeit with a slower rate of fire. This should prove a boon to Russian assault troops who prefer more control.
And heading towards the pacific we have the Type 97 Sniper Rifle for the Japanese. The Type 97 is a marksman rifle based on the Type 38, with a lighter stock and sniper scope. Both weapons are scheduled to be included with our next content patch. Japanese marksmen who prefer the higher velocity of the Type 38 will have a new favorite weapon to bring with them.
Tripwire has also been helping the Vehicle Mod Team, working with them to produce the framework for working multiplayer troop carriers, as well as implementing a spawning system for them. These changes have been integrated into our latest beta builds, and have successfully tested. For testing purposes both teams have been equipped with a Universal Carrier, drivable and capable of carrying infantry. They are also set to spawn at active spawns (and de-spawn from ones that go inactive, as well as ones abandoned in the field). We expect the Vehicle Mod Team will be showing off more on this subject in the future as they continue their hard work to bring more vehicles on line!
We will also be at PAX Prime next week, with 4 stations set up for Rising Storm as well as demoing our up coming Ouya title set in the Killing Floor Universe.
See you on the front! And Moskeeto wants me to point people at this server: 188.8.131.52:7777 to join him in some S&D!
