It's now been six months since Spintires: MudRunner launched, and this month, we're announcing a brand new feature for Spintires: MudRunner in celebration of all our dedicated players and fans!
We're very happy today to announce a new mode for Spintires: MudRunner. This mode, More Hardcore Mode, will make playing the game much harder, and drastically ramp up the difficulty.
How does this work? You'll now find areas of the map have now been transformed into treacherous quicksand! These spots are randomised, and careful planning will be needed to make sure you don't get caught and dragged down. You will need to master your winch, and your ability to crawl, to test ground and make sure it won't trap your wheels.
Quicksand is deadly even in multiplayer, with the force of the sand being able to drag multiple winched trucks deep into the ground. To survive, be sure to stop moving, and winch your friends and yourself to safety with as little motion as possible. If your vehicle is dragged deep enough down, it will be disabled for the rest of the map.
You can drag a vehicle out, if you try hard enough, but it will require your full team of MudRunners to work together as a unit, and the vehicle will be disabled until you can get repair points to it as well.
Best of luck out there, it's a dangerous time to be mudding!
