This update, which is free to all owners of RESOGUN lays the ground work for the forthcoming Heroes expansion due on Wednesday which will expand your RESOGUN experience with new modes, game world and more.
In addition to getting you all ready for Heroes though we wanted to do a little extra for everyone out there to thank you for the amazing support and reception you showed to RESOGUN on release. The guys at Housemarque and us here at XDEV Studio Europe were amazed by the reaction to the game and thank you all so much for getting behind the game.
With that in mind, alongside lots of tweaks, improvements and bug fixes, this free update contains a few special treats from us.
One of the more requested features since the world first got a look at “dem voxels” was the ability to create your own ship. Housemarque listened and created a fully featured Ship Editor for you to play with as part of this free update!
Design your own ship from the ground up using a detailed voxel editor. Position the afterburners and weapons, set your own attributes to govern the ships skill at agility, boost and overdrive and choose either of the standard weapon sets for your ride. Want a flying Delorean with the agility of the Nemesis but firepower of the Ferox? Go right ahead!
But that’s not all… what’s a ship editor if you can’t show off your custom rides? We went one step further and fully connected the editor online, share and download ships from your friends, rivals and the community at large and try out new ships to see what gives you the edge in the leaderboards.
This really is a massive addition to the game and one that is going to stir up the competition. Being able to tweak ship attributes means the game is tactically deeper and there are tons of new tricks to make that high score bigger… that and if you can think of anything better than saving the last humans while piloting a flying ninja unicorn ship then I’d like to hear about it.
We’re really excited to see what you guys come up with in the editor and will be right there online sharing our own ships.
Another much requested feature was the ability to play local co-op in game and the good folks at Housemarque have heard you and added that to the expansion too.
We love a good trophy set and were really proud that so many of you achieved the platinum after the game launched. We worked long and hard to make a set that was a challenge but still achievable and we’re incredibly proud that we were a lot of player’s first platinum trophy on PS4.
Because we like trophies and we like to spoil you all, we added trophies to not only the forthcoming expansion but also to this free update too!
This is another great reason to come back to the game and improve your overall trophy score. Again these have been designed to make you play with the new additions to the game and while challenging should be achievable for most of you with a little bit of effort – for those that need a little bit of help we’ll be back in a week or two with an exclusive trophy guide for both the Heroes Expansion and the Update created by one of our very own QA team – keep your eyes on the blog for that in the near future.
Hall of Fame
Since release we’ve seen you battling it out for the top scores on the leaderboards and go all out to save the last humans. Some player’s blew our minds in terms of the scores they could achieve and others… well some others surprised us with the discovery of some really sneaky exploits.
Such as this:
I bet you thought we weren’t watching huh ;) So with the huge amount of changes brought about by the editor and assignable attributes to ships we’ve spent some time ironing out the main game and fixing some of the exploits where we could.
With that in mind we’re left with little option but to clear the leaderboards and start afresh alongside the release of this update. That being said we didn’t want the superhuman efforts to go forgotten so we have added a Hall of Fame Leaderboard to display the achievements of the original RESOGUN Heroes. All scores in the Main Hero difficulty leaderboard will be forever displayed here to show future generations the level of skill (and in some cases sneakiness) that was shown by our community in the early months of RESOGUN.
And with that I’m out of here. We’ll be back on the blog tomorrow with more information about the Heroes Expansion pack. In the meantime enjoy the update and thanks again so much for all of your support for RESOGUN.
To all the Heroes we salute you – now get out there and save the last humans.
