The next patch for Fear The Wolves releases on Monday, the 17th of September!
Drop into a post-apocalyptic danger zone in Fear the Wolves, a competitive and atmospheric Battle Royale game from Vostok Games. Fear the Wolves drops players, in squads or as lone wolves, into the oppressive environments of a radiation-ravaged Chernobyl. The classic Battle Royale mode forces them to fight to be the last man standing.
The team has been hard at work making sure the game is constantly improving and today marks one of the first large updates for Fear the Wolves.
We've been condensing our models and creating new LODs to improve performance. Optimization is the top priority, and this will always be worked on throughout Early Access and even post-launch.
Several new points of interests have been added to the map, including complex industrial and urban settings. These dense and complex multi-storied buildings have loot on all levels so be careful and thorough!
Several parts of the map’s topography have been changed, with some tree heights being altered so that the extraction helicopter has new places to land.
Kill-hungry players will be pleased to know that player and wolf kills are added to the rewards at the end of each match. More difficult kills like headshots, vehicle kills, grenade kills, and melee kills are also rewarded with bonus points.
Spectator Matchmaking - You can queue for the next game while spectating
New Customization Sets – Unlock the Edge and the Gangster sets
10 Additional Languages – French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Polish, Chinese (Traditional), Czech, Hungarian and Turkish
Improved visuals - Updated anomaly effects, weather effects, and a variety of new shooting VFX
Compass – By popular demand!
And much more - Squad radiation status display, toggle for movement keys, increased map precision
If you haven’t been playing since launch, we’ve added several new features in the last two updates. During non-peak hours, the playable area can be scaled up and down depending on the size of the queue allowing for shorter, more intimate and intense games. Weapons and loot have also been rebalanced, making shotguns and pistols more lethal, and higher tier loot more frequent in the cities.
More information will be revealed in the incoming months, so stay tuned for more!
Fear the Wolves is currently available in Early Access. Can you survive the apocalypse?
