Hello Contagion fans!
We hope you had a fun Halloween, hopefully filled with more treats than tricks. Over here on Team Contagion we have been hammering away on another update. The big one here is restoring the maps to their non-scary pre-Halloween versions, albeit with a handful of fixes sprinkled into them here and there.
We've also addressed a recent crashing issue that was brought to light by our newest map, Montclair. Although it seemed to be possible in any map, it was most prevalent there. The fix involved optimizing how zombies are removed (well, specifically, some zombies were not being removed when they should have been). If you have been having crashing issues ever since the last patch, you definitely want to check things out now.
Hunted has been slightly modified as well. Now when you ping another survivors phone, nearby zombies will be attracted to the sound. We're hoping this should spice up all things hunted a little bit, as we've been having a lot of fun with it. We've also increased the radius that your phone can "see" other player's phones to accommodate the play style of larger maps.
There's lots more coming down the pipe, so keep your eyes pealed for more updates!
Also, just for anyone who hasen't seen it yet, don't forget to check out the soundtrack:
The sale may be over, but it's still a pretty hot deal for $1.99 in my opinion. I know I am biased, but really, check it out if you like the music in the game. There's a lot of stuff in the soundtrack that isn't in the game (yet!), and its all very good music. Plus, it's got that fantastic track from the trailer! I've run the numbers, and it's statistically improbable for you to lose on this deal.
Thanks again everyone, see you next time!
