Post news RSS It's heating up in our June update!

This month we dropped a whole bunch of new content for Murderous Pursuits... from new game modes to our much-requested target lock system!

Posted by on


For all of you new to the game, Murderous Pursuits is a 1-8 player stealth-em-up in which you must hunt and kill your quarry before your hunters do the same to you, all while avoiding witnesses.

Want to fill the empty space in your heart where Assassins Creed multiplayer used to be? Well then.. this game is for you.

Below gives you an idea of what content went into our June update!

Grab your weapons and brace yourselves, our third update has landed! From an additional game mode to a brand new perks system, Update 3 provides you with an even fuller Murderous Pursuits experience and more ways to impress Mr. X.



Chrono Capacitor Level
Deep down in the Brittanic's underbelly is the Chrono Capacitor, the technological marvel that allows the ship to travel through time itself. What better spot for some murderous fun?

It's electrifyin'!

Free-For-All game mode
Mr X has grown weary of simply giving you one quarry to kill to satisfy his bloodlust, but be cautious as everyone else now also has their eye on you... Free-For-All mode makes all players in the game a valid target!

New Game-mode!

Target Lock
You asked for it, you got it! Lock on to other players from distance or in a crowd using the right mouse button, so your killing blow no longer finds an unwanted target.

Perks System
Perks will passively alter how your game plays, from always spawning with a 5 favor weapon to respawning as a random character whenever you are killed.

Disrupt Ability
Scramble the HUD of nearby players so they won't see you coming with this devilishly delightful new ability.

New Model Swaps
Introducing the Soothsayer and Moujik on board H.M.C.S. Brittanic to enjoy the sights and sounds only a humungeous time traveling flying ship can provide. Well... until you murder them, of course.
