Bombs have been dropped, missiles launched and railguns railed. Hardware: Rivals, the explosive, over-the-top, vehicle combat game launched earlier this month and we’re pleased to provide an update on just some of the free content and features that will be coming your way soon.
Today we are releasing our 1.07 update, which directly addresses some of the feedback we’ve received from the community and cranks up the dials on a number of systems. You’ll find weapons pack more of a punch, vehicles are faster, and there’s a bunch of new free add-ons to unlock and game modes to try out over the coming days and weeks! We’ve also added new control options to help players get to grips with Combat Driving.
Not only that, we’ve got two new vehicles for you to take for a spin: the Scarab FAV and Barbarian tank, coming with a full range of new skins and a fresh set of add-ons!
There’s a load more fixes and tweaks in 1.07 and you can find more detailed Patch Notes in the Official Forums.
Free SHAREfactory theme
And there’s more – the official Hardware: Rivals Sharefactory theme is now available for free today. With your video editing skills, use the official theme to show off your takedowns, lucky escapes and impossible shots in the style that they deserve.
We’ll be rolling out regular updates and next month we’ll be adding a host of new free content, including:
Ranked Play Seasons
Now that you’ve gotten a grip on the essentials of combat driving, it’s time to prove yourself in our upcoming Ranked Play Seasons. By defeating drivers of equal status, you will earn your stripes and rise up through the ranks. The higher you climb, the tougher it gets – with only the best of the best reaching the top. There will be new, exclusive add-ons and skins to earn each Season as you rank up.
The events calendar is filling up fast. This weekend, we’ll be running two special events, with brand new skins awarded to those who complete each event. There are plenty of mid-week and weekend events still to come, so get involved on the Official Community Forums and tell us what event you would like to see!
A lot of people having ben asking about new maps so here’s a quick teaser:
Looking for a lawless equatorial dictatorship where the launching of latest high-tech, black market ballistic weaponry is positively encouraged? Then Mojito Bay is just the place for you! Stalk your opponents through a rain-soaked naval yard in the shadow of a vast aircraft carrier, containing an experimental weapon system that every combat driver will want to try.
Hardware: Rivals is currently free for PlayStation Plus members this month, so be sure to download the game if you haven’t already. If it’s been a while since you last played, come back and give it another go!
We’ll be posting more details on this and other upcoming free content in the Community Forums. As always, we love to hear your feedback so keep the comments coming!
