PVKII Beta Update Release Notes

Hello everyone,

Welcome to our Beta era! A major update for PVKII has been released! Server owners, please update your servers!

Spring is here, but we want you to stay inside just a little while longer to play some PVKII. We'd like to go out on a limb and say this is probably one of our largest updates to date. Our changelog below is condensed, and no where near describes the amount of content and work put into this update. Blood, sweat, and tears - its finally here. We hope you enjoy! Have a bloody good time with Beta 4.0!

Join us TODAY and NEXT SUNDAY for TWO, that's right, TWO opportunities to COME OUT & PLAY w/ PVKII Devs, Testers, and Creators - among the tidal wave of players, old and new. You might just be seen on a popular Youtube Channel or Twitch Stream. April 1st and April 8th 1:30 EST / GMT -5. Check your Steam events for your local timezone. Interact with PVKII Fans and PVKII Team on our official discord at

Please see below for a summarized changelog that details many of the changes in this release. Head over to our Bugs/Support Forums to report any issues.

Casual: This ruleset intended for more "sit back and relax" type of gameplay, pop open bottle of Hubb Jubb and have fun.

Changes include:
Auto-Block allowed

Competitive: Don't expect any hand holding here! Competitive is the ruleset where only the best may win. With the most significant changes to the gameplay, Competitive is not recommended for inexperienced players.

Match-based mode
Manual block only
Friendly fire
Disallow thirdperson
No all-talk
FF damage reduced by 50%
Auto-kick after 5 teamkills

Custom: Make your own rules! This ruleset means that the server has unique changes that won't fit in Casual or Competitive sets. Server admins can create and name their rulesets, even for each game mode.
Server admins can switch rulesets by using command "mp_ruleset" eg. "mp_ruleset Competitive". For instructions on how to create custom rulesets, view the "readme.txt" file in "rulesets" folder located in the game directory. A detailed guide for this feature will be available soon.
