We've just pushed out 4.3.8! At a glance, here's what's new in this release (nerds and geeks can read on after):
-> New Shop UI
-> New Armor UI
-> New Mystery Boxes & Lucky Draws
-> New Login Lucky Draw
-> New Quick Items (Charge your Health, Armor & Ammo in game)
-> New Gear COMING THIS FRIDAY!
-> New Servers with ping limits
-> Many small bugs fixed
New Shop UI
We've removed The Underground & cleaned up The Shop UI to make it easier to browse and buy weapons! Weapon stats are now shown on hover & there's a new easier to read buy panel!
New Armor UI
We've been getting confused by our Armor system for longer than you have - which is why we've changed the way that Armor values are displayed in The Shop.
* Armor Points remain the same
* Absorption Rate is now called Defense Bonus and your loadout stats are shown to you in The Shop
NOTE: We now calculate your Defense Bonus globally rather than individually for Upper & Lower body. This means that the numbers displayed in The Shop are now half of what they were before - the in-game values haven't changed at all.
Black Corps Body Armor - 40 Armor Points & 40% Absorption Rate
Black Corps Leg Armor - 40 Armor Points & 40% Absorption Rate
Black Corps Body Armor - 40 AP & 20% Defense Bonus
Black Corps Leg Armor - 40 AP & 20% Defense Bonus
In the old system - your loadout would display 80% AR - now it's a 40% Defense Bonus. Remember - gameplay hasn't changed at all - if it took 3 shots to kill you before, it takes 3 shots to kill you now!
New Mystery Boxes & Lucky Draws
Completely new to UberStrike - you're now able to play in The Shop to win permanent, new & exclusive weapons from as little as 900 Credits! As part of a soft launch you can only play for Credits, however you get one free daily Lucky Draw on login and we'll be adding the ability to play for points over time.
New Login Lucky Draw
We've replaced the previous Daily Points with a Daily Lucky Draw! Prizes vary, so log in every day to see what's in store!
New Quick Items
For the first time ever you're able to charge your ammo, health & armour in game using quick items! Head to The Shop to check them out - points prices are available at launch. Default Controls are:
'E'- Use Quick Item
'R'- Select Quick Item
or '6-8' for dedicated slot keys!
NOTE: The stats for these are subject to change - we're going to be modifying the values for these regularly, welcoming your feedback.
