In "The Hidden", players choose the role of either a near invisible killer, Subject 617, or one member of an Intercept squad who have to capture him, I.R.I.S. In the simple but challenging gameplay of an 'one against all'? mode, Subject 617 creeps/sneaks through the maps armed only with a knife and three pipe bombs. The IRIS team carry a selection of weaponry, fully customisable at round start, from F2000 assault rifles through to shotguns or sub machine guns as well as a pistol as a secondary weapon. However, they can hardly see Subject 617 as, just like the 'Predator', only the outline of his silhouette is visible. On top of that the Hidden also moves a little faster and has many abilites such as pouncing, wall grabbing, corpse pinning and the fatal pigsticker attack. Therefore co-operation is necessary for I.R.I.S. if they wish to prevail (if they dont want to become the prey/victim themselves). This leads to an outstanding gaming experience on public servers:...

We said we were going to attempt monthly updates from here to the end, and we have 'near enough' done it this time, give or take a week. In our mad rush to get Beta 4 out the door we only have a 'patch' version available at the moment (i.e. you will need a working copy of Beta 3 installed before upgrading). A full installer will be available sometime later today. Enough talking, onto the mirrors and lets get gaming.
NOTE: You will need Beta 3 installed BEFORE you use this to patch to Beta 4
Be sure to read the Player Guide if you aren't sure what Hidden : Source is all about!
We appreciate we've not given any time for servers to be prepared - sorry about that, we got a bit over eager and kind of forgot to do it earlier!
A changelog is available for those that wish to know what's changed between B3 and B4, the list is not massive, but it's not without substance.
