We hope you're continuing to enjoy Flashing Lights, whether it's with friends or alone, whether it's patrolling the city, treating patients or putting out fires! We're currently working hard on the June update, due towards the end of the month. If you haven't seen it already, take a look at our roadmap for the next few updates.
In September, we'll be adding callouts for all services to the new map - at this point, all functions from the original map will have been ported to the new one - and so we'll be removing the original map.
What we want to talk about today is some of the exciting new content that we have planned for late 2021 and throughout 2022.
What's Coming Following the September Update?
Here's some of the new content planned for late 2021 and throughout 2022!
- New map area: Suburbs with interiors and callouts
We're excited to announce that we're working on a brand new area for the new map: suburbs. This isn't just a nice change of scenery either. There will be new callouts designed for the suburbs - and yes... there will be some interiors!
- Traffic stop update with vehicle search and drug tests
- Rural towns with additional police, fire and EMS buildings
- Fire system rework with spreading fires, hose system update, plus a fire engine
- Police K9/Fire rescue dog
We will also be focusing on bug fixes. While we are excited to add new content, we will also be working on bug fixes and improving the quality of the game.
