Shotgun Frenzy v1.4 Released!

I always say it won’t take long but this one felt like a lifetime. Shotgun Frenzy v1.4 is finally out and can be downloaded here:

There are many changes in this new version. Most notably are the new maps, weapons and the new demon skill optimising (optimise demon difficulty depending on the player count).

There are also a ton of bug fixes, but I am not going to say its bug free, we all know in the past that’s never been true, so expect a patch in a couple of weeks from now which should patch up anything nasty that comes through. I’ll also be releasing some mod documents that will make mapping easier.

For now, here is the change log:

NEW FEATURES

  • New map, CF05: Dynomite
  • New map, SF05: Underworld
  • New Commando Backpack, featuring the Repeater, Shotgun Frenzy’s take on the chaingun
  • BFG9000 added to the Armory
  • Stimpacks can be researched from the Armory, a small dosage of health is given to the player on usage, and is restockable
  • Enemies are harder to kill depending on the matches player count
  • Commander hotkeys to make things a little quicker in the command chair
  • Researched abilities now display on player hud when Stock Pad is used
  • Siren sound on game start, along with alternative countdown sound
  • Changed bosses around
