ABOUT

Fatal Freight: Remastered is a 5-chapter campaign created with a strong focus on delivering balanced gameplay on all difficulties and gametypes. Each level has undergone extreme testing and tweaking to put them on par with the official campaigns from Valve. Fatal Freight: Remastered offers new and veteran players alike a dramatic and highly entertaining experience from start to finish while modelling the original and iconic coop gameplay that has made the Left 4 Dead series so successful.

In this new edition of the campaign, drastic improvements have been made to the campaign on almost all fronts.
You can expect crisper visuals powered by AI-enhanced textures and revamped/improved lighting, shadowing, and color palettes designed to give the campaign its own unique feel.
Functionally, things have been even more polished, with plenty of improvements on bot navigation, collision optimization, and rebalancing.
There have been a plethora of bug fixes shipped with this update, including the ever-famous "stringtable" crash present on Dedicated Servers.

After crashing their vehicle, the survivors find themselves holed up in a small tunnel at the edge of the forest. With supplies running low and the frigid winter looming on the horizon, there is little hope for survival. Suddenly, a strange voice comes through the radio. A man, claiming to have a means of escape is holed up at a freight train depot a few miles away. Seeing it as their best option, the survivors grab their remaining supplies and head out into the woods..

Fatal Freight: Remastered

News

1.6 is Released.

This is the Final version of the campaign.
The main feature of this update is fixing the Stringtable Dictionary crash on the finale and improving the overall polish of the campaign. To do this, I've increased the resolution of most textures by a factor of about 4x -- done using an AI. Other polish work includes improved navigation for bots and infected as well as more detailed environments.
