Most of Locust are voiced properly - some of them says nothing, Also I've Changed Spawn System, Now its based on difficulty and every locust class has minimum and maximum difficulty appearance.

5.Gameplay Mechanics

Features:
- Money System; very extended from previous version
- Objective System; Now Objective Spawns not every wave so you can feel not overwhelmed by power locusts.
- newer HUD; now you dont hit any button to see what wave is it - and scoreboard has been changed
- Life system; no lives anymore, now if you have cash you can respawn as many times as you want to;
- Achivements - it will be only for show - there are not much of them
- Boss waves: 10th wave - berzerker, 15th wave - RAAM, 25th wave - Myrrah
- new Pickup system - based on HORDE 2.0 pickups - if you have enough cash you can pickup them.
- new Weapon Garbage Collection - every dropped weapons are cleared with every new wave beginning
- Teammates - Respawns every wave start, also they can revive other teammates. Maximum number 5 start number 2 you can buy 1 for 5000$ and if you reach max number for 5000$ you can respawn them.
- Totally changed command center - Now you dont start wave in command center it starts automatically. it will bring some new functionallity
* Buy Teammate
* Buy Heavy Guard - Spawns Onyx Guard with mulcher

Listed but not implemented:
* fortifications
* Silverback
those can be seen in command center but can't be bought

Removed features:
- Hand Console - totally useless tool
- Bullet Time - but it will appear in some later release
- changing teammate equipment - now teammates has random weapons.
- buying new equipment - will be added in later release

Hopefully listed all features of upcoming release(if I missed something - you can see that on videos i posted on youtube),

Important notes:
- All content will be cooked - so you have to prepare for 130MB Maps size and small
versions of packages
- new installation - You will have to remove previous version of mod, but for now wait for new installation tutorial.
- localization - Now some parts can be localized

Ok thats it for now. New version will be published 19th or 20th September. so 2 weeks left for ultimate mayhem :D.

See you later guys.
