Here is Beta 1.06 featuring two new weapons, a new blood tech, and saying goodbye to a lot of old Half-Life 2 content!

Where is Greenlight?!

Many of you have been wondering when our game will be available on Steam. We are working closely with Valve on making this a reality. We should be ready to launch on Steam with our next patch! We plan on making 1.07 our biggest patch yet. As development happens, we will throw up some videos on our YouTube channel.

Tired of Survival? Don't worry! nay0r, Lou Saffire, and thegregster are working on fresh objective maps. That doesn't mean we won't be giving you more Survival content though. Shirk is finalizing his map deemed Suburb Survival. In the next few weeks we will be showing you some screenshots and videos of those so keep a vigilant eye out.

As for the present, here is Beta 1.06 featuring two new weapons, a new blood tech, and saying goodbye to a lot of old Half-Life 2 content!

If you experience problems with the patch, try installing the full 1.06 client and see if that resolves any issues. If using the 'G' key for throwing weapons does not work, rebind the command in the console:

bind g +dropweapon

Ammo Checking & Voice Sets

We added the ability to customize your character with different voice sets as well as tailoring the way you want your ammo checking to be.

You may have noticed from the changelog that we updated a lot of our sound effects, replacing some that were vanilla Half-Life audio. Last month we introduced Tom 'rezOnance' Wright to the team. He has been helping revamp a lot of the foley and sound effects within the game, and made a blog post about creating some of these sick sounds! Check it out here. Tom also put together a little video of the new sounds added to 1.06. Listen to some heads pop!

Stay alive!

Very nice! Definitely eager to try this out again, although used to be able to play this with my brother, over LAN. (Via Hamachi I think. Not sure though.) But of course, I'm not able to now. I know I didn't have to port forward. Anyone able to lend a little aid?

I think it would be a great improvement adding a few diferent gamemodes, zombie types and maybe in one of the possible future gamemodes the versus mode, were some players actualy control one of the infected that can use some special skills like left 4 dead 2 etc

We're toying around with better ways to do Survival mode. We have some ideas in the works and felt that survivors shouldn't lose just because a bunch of zombies were in a zone. We have yet to fully flesh out our ideas though, but I assure you there is a purpose :)

Slayer-Lord Nov 21 2012 replied:

ohhh in purpose :), alot of players i played with thought it was a bug, but btw this way is better cause realy sometimes it is only one zombie in same area attacking and the area is gone.
Hope others like the new update like me. had hard time finding wich ammo to wich gun but now with "ammo check" it is very ok :). great.

nice update, BUUUUUT what happened to survival? Survivors don't lose once all points are gone, and besides, you can still place fema crates at destroyed points. Is this update supposed to be like this?

I think it has sort of ruined survival mode, It's too easy to survive now, and if you happen to be unlucky enough to die, you have to wait at LEAST 10 mins more than usual before a new wave starts. I once had to wait 45 MINUTES because the last survivor in our team decided to search for loot (even though there was still 50 zombies left) since the points didn't matter anymore.

Survival mode worked perfectly in 1.05, rounds were harder, more challenging, and simply more fun. If you died, you could expect the wave to last for a maximum of 5 mins after your death.

Please bring back the old survival mode, it was simply better.
If you're going to change something about survival, change the point placements, they could need a fix sometimes...

It was a last minute hiccup with Survival mode as we were trying to adjust things. We apologize for the inconvenience, our next update will address and resolve this.

Has there been compatibility updates since 1.04? I noticed on some maps were unusually laggy. Well specifically Cabin. Has there been anything incorporated that make that map less laggy? (multicore rendering,fixes to the maps poly count, etc?) Normally It wouldn't be a problem but at least when I played 1.04, Cabin was the most popular map.

Are you guys working on the crash issues I've seen a couple of people having problems with? I'm also having issues where the game crashes (usually right after I shoot a weapon of some kind at a zombie: sound glitch maybe?)...
I hope to see that the new patch fixes stability, because I can't play more than maybe 45 minutes without it crashing. Im using 2 Radeons Crossfired (6970) if that helps with the issue.
Also, the the helicopter glitches on Favela D: it won't drop crates!
