In this version of Recruits we have done major updates to our code and environments. There were a few missions in need of lots of love, so Mission 2 and 3 have been dramatically fixed and changed to play and perform a lot better than previously. Make sure you try these mission out, we have unlocked all the missions in the menu so anyone can play any mission they choose.
In mission 2 there is now a Bow and Arrow that can be used to quietly take out enemies from a greater distance. Its a cool little weapon, the arrow get stuck in objects and you have the ability to charge up the weapon to cover more distance if needed.
An updates to our Airstrike ability (Required in Mission 3) give the airstrike a more powerful feel, making it much more realistic. The missile from the plane now comes in at a higher speed and really gives the illusion of heavy firepower from above. Take a look at the video below for it in action.
If you follow our twitter, you might have seen that we have just done a successful multiplayer test. So now we are working on getting everything all nice and set up for everyone to test our in the coming versions of Recruits on Desura.
