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:...

While it's not Beta 5, we felt that enough's enough and that we had to get something out the door. So while this update does nothing on the code side of things (we didn't want to go back and try and jury-rig the old code base into a releaseable state - the additional problems that would create would be endless!) it does update the mods steamappid to 215 (we appreciate that a number of players and servers have already done this, but with this update everyone should be on the same playing field and we should have no more problems with one group being unable to play on certain servers!)

We've scrapped Manor (if you've been following the forum, you'll be aware of this) but rather than leave you with one less map, we've fixed up hdn_origin by removing the lag inducing shakes and replaced manor with the much more atmospheric and decidely sexy Decay.

Aside from those major changes, this update includes a number of alterations to materials and models and includes a whole new look and feel to the menus and front end! Though keep in mind, we have held back some art updates for Beta 5, just so we've got some new shinies to go along with the new gameplay mode and feature set.

NOTE: This update breaks compatibility between 4A clients and 4B servers (and vice versa) due to material alterations.
