Posted by on


That's right.

This Friday, January 30th, Crankshaft Games releases a new version of Eternal Silence. This version, dubbed 3.2, contains 9 maps, 3 new game types and many improvements on the infantry combat. The mod will be released over Steam and will reach some 16 million users instantly. We're happy to finally be able to deliver our game on such a massive platform. The Steam tools bring the promise of instant-updates for the entire player base, and we plan to make excellent use of those features.

We'd like to remind the server administrators to update to the latest dedicated server released today, version 13. Server admins who haven't got their servers setup yet can download the necessary files from the HLDS Update tool using the command -game "esmod".

Here are a few screenshots of the final release. We can't wait for Friday.



We've also made the Top 100 in the ModDB Mod of the Year awards. Please vote for us again in the second round. Every vote counts!

Cool, though it might be a little hard to release it on Friday when today is the 28th and it's Wednesday. Might you mean the 30th?

I might be missing something, but isn't this Friday the 30th anyway?

Never minding the trivial date question, this is awesome news. Placing it on Steam will give it a greater chance of attracting more players.

Awesome, I never bothered with ES due to its lack of Steam support and therefore not a big community. Now with it on Steam I'll give it a try, it sure looks excellent. Congratulations and good luck on keeping it goin ;)

Steam support is relatively new. Many mods not featured on steam have great communities.

I've been waiting to play this until the update. This game is so fun with more than 4 people.

Is ES the only mod coming to Steam that day?

They usually release the mods in batches. Dystopia and another mod (Pirates, vikings & knights??) are probably going to be released with it.
