FEATURES & CONTENT

  • Added the ability for the KYF Match Manager to toggle whether join permissions are limited to friends only or not.
  • Added the ability to view Items, the Killer Power and Add-ons on the score board at the end of the match
  • Added the Proficiency System. The Proficiency System helps the player know how the different gameplay elements (e.g. their own or other players’ perks, offerings, add-ons) affect their performance at the interaction they are currently performing. Proficiency icons will appear for:
    • Chance: Displays if the player has a better or worse chance at succeeding the performed action (only valid for actions that can fail, e.g. escaping a trap or a hook)
    • Efficiency: Displays if the player’s Item Usage depletes slower or faster than usual
    • Progression Speed: Displays if the Action Progression Speed is slower or faster than usual
    • Skill Check Difficulty: Only displays after the first Skill check, and indicates if the Skill Check is easier or harder to succeed
    • Skill Check Probability: Only displays after the first Skill check, and indicates if Skill Checks happen more or less frequently than usual
  • Adjusted the color of the interaction bar when using perks, items or add-ons to properly reflect if there is a positive(yellow) or negative(red) speed effect
  • Adjusted the controller cursor speed and stickiness
  • Adjusted the font size of player steam names in the HUD. Font was reduced to compensate for names cutting off
  • Adjustements to various survivor & killer animations (killer attack camera movement, hooking, survivor carry, open exit, window vault)
  • Implemented a character info screen. This screen features each characters unique perks and their character biography
  • Implemented a new Help & Tutorials section
  • Implemented tooltips on the loading screen
  • Integrated additional status effects and modified some existing effects to use the new Proficiency system (see below). The current status effects are:
    • Blindness: Character’s vision is impaired.
    • Bloodlust: Killers gain bloodlust by maintaining a chase for at least 15 seconds. Bloodlust increases the Killer’s movement speed
    • Cursed: The Survivor is suffering from a secret penalty due to a Hex Perk. Cleansing its Hex Totem will dispel the curse.
    • Endurance: The Survivor is hardened, and can resist a hit.
    • Exhausted: The Survivor cannot performs physically demanding feats of speed from perks such as Sprint Burst, Balanced Landing or Lithe.
    • Exposed: The Survivor is in peril and can be downed in one hit. (Will not show on chainsaw hit)
    • Haste: The character’s movement speed is increased.
    • Hemorrhage: The Survivor gushes blood, making them easier to track.
    • Hindered: The character’s movement speed is decreased.
    • Madness: The Survivor suffers various mental afflictions including hallucinations and uncontrollable screaming.
    • Mangled: The Survivor is heavily injured and requires more time to be fully healed.
  • The charge meter for items now changes color when it is being positively or negatively affected. Red for negative affects (charge is depleted quickly) and yellow for positive affects (charge is depleted slowly)

 

BALANCE

  • Hex: Thrill of the Hunt Perk change: Changed values for blood points granted for hunting by 4/6/8 to 6/8/10. Changed cleanse time from 4/7/10 to 4/5/6. The increased cleansing time was too high for what we wanted Thrill of the Hunt to do, we’ve reduced it to more manageable numbers.
  • Open Handed perk change: Now affects teammates by increasing aura reading ranges by 4/6/8 meter range.
  • Quick & Quiet perk change: Added a cooldown every 30/25/20 seconds.
  • Removed Offerings which gives players addition Bloodpoints from the Kill Your Friends Inventory
