[prMac.com] Brno, Czech Republic - The MADFINGER Games Team has made good on the wishes of SHADOWGUN: DeadZone players shared on Forums or via fan social network pages. "We have been very carefully reading feedback from players. We made a list of wishes and then we decided which requirements we are able to meet and how long it would take. This is why the update consists of many changes that were influenced directly by players themselves, "explained MADFINGER Games PR Manager, Anna Porizkova.
With the new update, two new maps have been added to the game and finally players are now able to play with friends.
The most important change of the new update will influence all players. The new update brings improved servers that will fix connection issues. After the new version release, no player will be able to continue play without first updating to the new release.
In other significant news, changes have been effected in the performance and properties of weapons and items. Due to necessary fixes in the Research menu, all Research items will be reset to their original settings. "We redesigned the research tree and made changes to the statistics aspect of weapons. This means that after making the update, each weapon or item will appear in a slightly different manner than in the previous version from where the player purchased it. Very importantly, any players who have spent in-game money need not worry. All funds that players have invested into the game will be returned to their game account so that they may reuse them for research with all their favorite weapons and items," explained Marek Rabas, CEO at MADFINGER Games.
The new update has been developed on Unity 4.0 and promises more FPS and memory optimization.
