Patchnotes via Steam Community

After months and months of development, the first Free DLC Update is now available. Apocalypse: The Framework! This is bundled together inside inside the fourth feature update, adding 2 brand new maps, gameplay improvements, fog reduction, visual improvements, DLSS, and much more. Aside from the usual changelog, here's an explanation for both:

* Apocalypse: The Framework
So as you've probably noticed the development has been quiet for awhile, this was to make time for my first DLC Update! Completely free. This is a complete level creation system, built for creating hundreds of different types of maps for Apocalypse. Over 350 Props (interior and exterior), a brand-new visual style, an event system, and complete flexibility over zombies, loot containers, style, and much more. Easy to use and accessible from the main menu, just export any level you've created and instantly play it from the map selection screen, or share with friends instead. Modding support will be available soon.

* Fog Reduction, Visual Tweaks, and DLSS
The Fog has generally been lowered throughout the entire game and all the visuals are much more consistent between areas and states. Night maps look significantly better too and all interior maps have had a pass with new props and models. DLSS is now officially supported too!

* (Edit) Steam Achievements
The latest hotfix fixes all the issues related to older achievements, and adds a few more! With the new total around 24, although none of the additions are challenging they do now cover the entire game's content. This has been fully tested and upon release every achievement is now unlockable:

* 2 New Maps!
There's 2 brand new maps, all with assets never seen before in apocalypse! These maps add more variety to the current selection. Firstly, 'Destroyed City Tunnel' is a map based inside the subway, with 1 simple lane you need to defend. The 'F.O.B Public Testing Site', is a map based inside a destroyed and apocalyptic wasteland. There's also some bug-fixes from the community discussion. This includes achievement fixes, loading fixes, and much more! See the changelog below, also available in-game:
