Changes coming to Early-Mid Game

After a very long meeting discussing the early-mid game we have come to the following conclusions. Do read and tell us your thoughts in #factions-public-beta-suggestions . We will have this out in its first form this Friday on Public beta as a early test.

Early Game Changes: Time-lapse GIF to demonstrate!


  • Chelsey limited to a sphere that expands over time. Enter at your own risk. (not shown, invisible ingame right now)
  • Chelsey's infectivity way up
  • Chelsey's lethality up
  • No longer captures territory
  • Things she infects in one strike become more infectious than normal
  • Red Sphere means Chelsey infected someone at that location
  • Purple Sphere means a victim infected another victim
  • Chelsey's lethality up
  • No longer captures territory
  • Things she infects in one strike become more infectious than normal
  • Chelsey will no longer capture zones but instead spawn randomly somewhere on the Island(Intent on spreading the Pangu Virus at all costs, goes on a kill spree on civilians)
  • Infected will grow structures from their bodies when enough have been Infected
  • They will also mutate to special infected from the ones that are infected during combat from going into hibernation around pods they make
  • Civilians will now litter the entire map populating the world and providing a constant source for Chelsey to infect
  • Hordes/Horde timers will be gutted and made more into a dynamic system where zones on the fringes/zones that are under attack would grab infected within a zone and group them up to help defend or attack a nearby point constantly
  • Winters will no longer start on the top left Island and you'll get to choose your starting Location
  • Chelsey will be "Zoned" initially as the game progresses she'll gain the ability to explore more around her(You cannot scare her away anymore so encounters will be deadly if you walk into her Hive)
  • If you Destroy her Hive she will retreat across the map and attempt to start over
  • Humans when killed by infected will always become infected now
  • Zones will transition from Green(Safe),Yellow(Signs of Infection, Red(Extreme signs of Infection) as Chelsey spreads to a zone it is possible to own a zone shes spreading within (No more Ninja captures)

This will encourage players to explore the map and think about how they can effectively protect the civilians as Chelsey seeks to spread at all costs

Reference on the stages we are aiming for as we expand upon the Early-Mid game

Patch Notes - 0.7.95 Ammo Box auto Grab and other QOL Changes

Patch notes to both builds Public/Beta

  • Added cliffside hotel
  • Radio Music System revamped/bug fixes
  • Speculative crash fix for medic AI
  • Fixed the Hospital spawn node 'turning on' strangely if no infected zones remained (was remnant of pre-Chelsey system stuff from years ago)

  • New Main Menu added
  • Fixed Options not saving/displaying properly / other various options bug fixes
  • Fixed Sentinel North not properly providing money when captured on the smaller Treasure Island map (wasn't properly referenced in the Zone Manager for that map)
