Nytt innehåll sista mars
Bara namnet GFTO, som inte betyder något enligt utvecklarna, understryker lite uppkäftighet och för att fortsätta i den attityden kommer nu nya innehållet som heter Infection.
Självklart är det bara en ren slump, det var tänkt att heta så lång innan allt det här om Coronavirus började förändra vårat liv? Oavsett, nytt innehåll till GTFO kommer den sista mars. Alla som 10 Chambers har att säga kan du läsa nedan.
Pressmeddelandet rakt av
In December last year, Swedish independent game developer 10 Chambers Collective – formed in 2015 by nine industry veterans known for titles such as PAYDAY: The Heist and PAYDAY 2 – released their first game GTFO, a 4-player co-op action/horror FPS, in Early Access. It has been described as “Left 4 Dead meets Aliens”, and on March 31st it’s getting a massive update as a part of their Rundown concept, where the game is regularly updated with new expeditions (i.e. maps, scenarios, enemies, etc.) that replace the previous ones. The new update includes a new environment laid out over 10 new maps, new weapons, enemies and objectives – and today they are teasing it by releasing a developer playthrough of one of the new levels.
GTFO is a 4-player co-op action/horror FPS game, made for hardcore gamers looking for a challenge. The game takes place in a terrifying underground facility called “the Complex”, where your team’s survival relies on your ability to communicate, coordinate – and count your bullets. Today, they are showing a recorded gameplay session the developers had, revealing the first expedition of their next big update (Rundown #002), which will be named “Infection” – hinting at its theme.
In the video, you can see the group of four pursuing the objective to locate a “TERMINAL_546” and from that, establish an external uplink. It’s up to the team to find out how to get to this terminal; GTFO doesn’t give many clues such as waypoints or directions. Finding your way involves looking for signs on walls and doors, and accessing data hidden in computer terminals scattered across the facility.
“GTFO doesn’t hold any hands and places demand on cooperation from the start; communicate with your team to find out if they see any signs on the walls or doors, to make progress. On this particular expedition we’re playing in the video, the players need to work together to establish an external uplink from a terminal: One team member will need to type in commands that are only visible on the screens of the three other players – who will need to shout them, while also combating an onslaught of monsters. As you can see in the video, it gets intense”, says Ulf Andersson, founder of 10 Chambers.
Visible in the video are also two new weapons: A machine pistol and a burst rifle. When the update is released – and is made available free for everyone that owns GTFO – on March 31st, it will also include a total of 10 new expeditions of which some need unlocking, as well as new enemies and objectives.
“The update will include 10 new maps in total but we’re trying out an exciting new feature as well, that we call Warden Restriction. When we release the update, it will have a number of the expeditions locked. When a certain number of people have completed the tiers that lead up to those expeditions, the locked ones will become accessible”, says Simon Viklund, co-founder of 10 Chambers. “We hope this will encourage even more help and engagement between our community members, which we have seen a lot of already – and we feel very grateful to have such a nice and friendly community!”
GTFO already has a very active community, especially on Discord where they’re one of the largest servers right now with over 175.000 members. This Discord server used for people to find team members as well as discussing GTFO or helping new people understand the game.
