Greeting Survivors!

The perfect game to back-stab your friends just added a new level of deception. Are you ready?

A new map has been added in the rotation that may bring some uphill battles and high level gameplays to your Project Winter experience. Be extra careful of who you trust as this map gives a whole new meaning to having a “ride or die” friend!

NEW FEATURES & GENERAL CHANGES:

Introducing a new map: * The cabin is located on the northernmost tile rather than in the center, overlooking the rest of the map from an elevated position

  • Two options for accessing the rest of the map from the cabin: a gondola that provides rapid transport to the southernmost tile, or a narrow ramp that descends the cliffside to the immediate area below the cabin

  • New gameplay dynamics, with the first objective now being located outside the southern gondola station rather than around the cabin and the ability for traitors to delay the gondola via sabotage

  • Two new main tile variations for the existing normal mode maps which alter the positions of trees, rocks, etc. surrounding the cabin

  • Text chat can now be used in pregame lobbies, which also logs messages when players join, leave or get kicked

  • Players can now only upvote the same player once per day at the end of a match

  • Snow trails will now disappear much faster when a blizzard event is active

  • Updated naming of bonus objectives to "bonus challenges" and adjusted their scale on the UI to better emphasize the importance of the primary escape objectives

  • When initiating the escape vehicle countdown, if a survivor is the last remaining player alive, the vehicle will now leave immediately instead of waiting for the countdown

  • Added sound effect that plays when sending or receiving messages via text chat to better draw attention to it

  • Various changes to improve UI when using a controller

  • Updated crossplay icon visuals to help them read better

  • [Steam] Added new option in general settings to toggle crossplay icon visibility outside of main menu lobby (will now be hidden in-game by default)

BALANCE CHANGES:
  • Traitor radio jamming ability no longer jams red radio channel
  • Identity Thieves now gain access to the red radio channel when stealing a traitor role
  • All deployed traps (bear traps, landmines, tripwires) now have a 3 second grace period before the deployer can activate them (previously only on the bear trap)
  • Tripwires will now slow the player who triggered them by 50% for 10 seconds
  • Tripwires can now be used to trap crates
  • Tripwires and alarm traps will now trigger their alarm when activated via the Trap Disarm Kit
  • Reduced duration of bear traps on polar bears
  • Explosive crossbow bolts no longer cause players to ragdoll
  • Survivor airdrop will now always appear away from the cabin
  • Reduced activation time for ice wall consoles from 3 seconds to 1 second
  • Removed "don't deal damage with tools" bonus challenge and replaced with individual challenges for not using a single type of tool
  • Players will now drop batteries if holding one when teleported by the Solar Flare event

  • Fixed several cases where environmental sounds could persist between maps

  • Fixed possible connection issues for some players when first loading into game; retry prompt will show less often
  • Fixed issue with player corpse inventory title not displaying incorrectly in Turkish
  • Fixed minimap being hidden by Solar Flare event when player is not actually teleported (due to being aboard the escape vehicle or otherwise)
