Black Day, a sandbox military infiltration game is now deploying its biggest and best update since the Early Access release. Alpha 0.93 is finally online and ready for download. This update contains no less then eight major improvements and dozens of corrections and tweaks.
Lets start with the new ghillie suits that are now available.
This equipment is the snipers primary choice of camouflage. This suit not only offers great visuals but also gives a considerable bonus when infiltrating. Depending on your posture and mobility while also taking advantage of the terrain your chances of being detected by the enemy will be significantly reduced. AI Teammates can also be equipped with the ghillie suit and profit from its advantages.
A other important update is the new tutorial.
Showing players how to use the controls and learn all the mechanics the game has to offer. This level will teach you how to play Black Day one step at a time.
Going forward with the update, I introduce to you a complete weapon audio overhaul.
Every weapon firing sound effect has been modified (with and without silencers). This offers a more realistic and immersive combat ambiance especially during intense firefights with AI.
I leave you the pleasure of discovering these new sounds by BoomLibrary.
Night Vision and Thermal goggles are finally viewable on the characters.
You can now eliminate hostiles by silently approaching your target and jumping them from behind and breaking their necks. The old method of using a knife has been removed and replaced with this action providing more realism and immersion. Your teammates can also execute this deadly takedown action.
A new functionality that has also been added is the ability to whistle.
A simple button press will allow you to attract the enemy attention to your position for a quick stealth kill. You can also order teammates to whistle in order to keep targets at distance.
The AN/PVQ-31A scope now comes with a 1-5X zoom.
Like classic sniper scopes you can now switch between different zooms allowing you to adapt your shots to different situations.
Two new objectives are also available. Eliminate V.I.P and recover access codes and hack computer.
The first new objective will force you to eliminate a static target in a high security perimeter. Perfect for sniper missions. The second new objective asks the player to recover and memorize a certain access code in order to hack a specific computer terminal. One mistake when entering the code will lock the computer and the objective is failed.
I hope this new content will please you, as usual feel free to comment on the forums and don’t hesitate to write a review in order to attract a larger audience and help the game get known.
