Mutant Factions v0.91 is out! Introducing Respect Rankings!

Tue 03 Dec 2013, 09:37 by bencelot



Mutant Factions version 0.91 has now been released! This is the first version to come out since Outbreak was released and it includes plenty of polish and improvements to the game mode. I've listened to your feedback and made the necessary skill and weapon balances to bring a lot more diversity into the game. Go try out some new builds now! Skills to look out for are Stolen Seekers with it's 100% protection from ranged zombies, Parasite Swarm for it's newly improved combo killing potential, and Infection for it's extra large trail. The tier 2 and 3 weapons now have extra high damage multipliers against zombies too which provides a great incentive to save up for them. There are plenty of other changes too such as vehicles being more effective at blocking zombies, the AI has been improved, the blue zombies have been nerfed, and much more. Go check the changelog for details.

There are some cool new features too. The respect system has been altered to now display ranks instead of the raw number. This provides a fun incentive to train up to the next rank as well as allowing players to show off their ranks in the scoretab. There is a new skill selection option when you hold down the middle mouse button that lets you quickly select skills. The netcode has been improved and optimised, and there are plenty of bug and balance fixes included too. On the whole this is a nice new version that really polishes everything that v0.9 introduced to the game. Go play it now!

It already is free to play! The only reason I would charge money is if that was a condition for getting the game onto Steam. Like if Valve were to say they would only accept it if it cost $10 or something (they need to make money too of course). But even in that case I would try make it so all the existing accounts would get to keep playing for free, as a thanks for helping out during these slow beta testing phases. But anyway that's a while away. First thing to do is start building up a community, which I plan to do after v0.92. I know I said it would be after this version but I think I want to do a BIG marketing push now and in order to do that I need to prepare. The game is going to need more maps, an up to date youtube video, and sexy new screenshots. So this will take a bit of time and I'll start working on that stuff for v0.92. Then the game will be ready for the world once and for all!

Yeah,I understand.
I see,this game will be on steam once it's actually big enough and has a legit playerbase.
And getting it on steam eventually will make the player base even higher as all big games are on steam already.I guess steam is the only way to satisfy our playerbase,so we can get active players all day long (due to time zones)
And glad to hear that you might be able to make it free to play somehow :D
Anyway,the game is on the right way to success i assume.
