Post news Report RSS NOVEMBER UPDATE NOW LIVE | Multiplayer NPC Traffic, Defibrillator, CPR

Check out all the details on Flashing Lights' massive new update!

Posted by on

Hello all,

I'm excited to announce that the November update for Flashing Lights is now live!

Multiplayer NPC traffic makes its debut, as one of the single most requested features since Early Access launch.

Also added is the ability to perform traffic stops in multiplayer, as well as the defibrillator for the EMS department, a new piece of equipment accessible in both single player and multiplayer. Making use of the all new defibrillator and heart scanner, as well as the ability to perform CPR, injured NPCs now have multiple injured states, requiring various different responses.

There is another massive content update to come in December, which we're calling the Speed Update, so watch out for that over the coming month!

Of course, there's much more to come for Flashing Lights is 2019, so stay tuned for news on further content updates!
