Trickster DLC

News

The expansion DLC is out!

The game is about to get a new mini-expansion: "The Trickster's Arsenal". The details of what's inside are still being worked on, but I can announce some new combat abilities.

The DLC is going to add 7 new powers, kind of like the chopper strike, but with different effects. For example, one ability is STASIS FIELD - you can fire it at a hive and freeze everything in the area. The hive can't take damage, but it also can't do anything to you. Good for splitting up enemies. Another one is OVERDOSE - you lose some health, but your marines go into a frenzy.

The abilities allow you to fight in new ways, like teleporting across the map to deal with an emergency.

At least some parts of the DLC will be free to everyone who owns the game. For example, I didn't want to split the leaderboards between DLC and non-DLC, so the new abilities are unlocked for everyone if you're playing a leaderboard map.

Here are the patch notes:

I can't wait for a release. Keep up the good work! Do you have a plan for any sort of demo? Or are you just going to release a trailer?

What language and what graphics API are you using? C++ and SDL? C++ and DirectX?

Art: I love the colors, and art style. They go very well together. Except I didn't think the red in the middle was blood. It looks more like a rock to me.

Game: The first picture makes me think that this will be a co-op/team game. Is this going to be a solo adventure, or will there be multiplayer? If not multiplayer, will there be AI teammates?

Heh - I had the exact same thought about the blood.

Hey can we get some modding tools or maybe some cheap skin packs? Your games like perfect for some starship troopers mods or skins and no one seems to have to stuff to do it yet.

When @beaglerush streamed Infested Planet he asked for a super-impossible difficulty. Well, I just patched in ELITE mode. It's pure evil. :)

RT @noel_llopis: @noel_llopis One of the takeaways is that "average" games don't sell. It needs to be exceptional in some aspect.
