We are pleased to announce that BoSS has finally opened the doors to the Modular Combat arenas. Any combatant who wishes to compete must register their HEV Mark VI suits on arrival.
We are pleased to share with you the first (now second) public release of Modular Combat. From this point on, when we update the mod, you get to reap the benefits.
For those who not aware, Modular Combat is an action-RPG mod for Half-Life 2: Deathmatch! This mod puts you in the HEV Mark VI, designed to communicate with a BoSS computer. Kill other players to gain experience which will earn you levels and upgrade points. Use the upgrade points to buy modules, which will grant your hazard suit extra abilities. BoSS will remember your account information and up to three different suit configuration across each session on a server.
This is just a quick overview of the many different features we've included with the first release!
- Persistent character and server account information
- Indepth experience and leveling system
- Module system. Players may upgrade any module at any level!
