Note: Since a lot of logical changes have been made to Doctrines and Weapons, it is suggested to start a new game in order to have it working correctly (the game won't crash but the doctrines and weapons won't do what people were used to have them doing)

I Shall Remain

Key features in the I Shall Remain Sixth update.

- Ellis Island map extended and updated
- Two new maps are in (Holland Tunnel Subway and Alphabet City)

- Weapons have levels now, the level influencing their characteristics (damage, repair cost, most of the weapon effects, serum cost)
