We will update the post as the developer pushes new live update for the multiplayer portion, you can check out the main Patch post here.

Update 1.21.064 (March 17, 2017)

Multiplayer:

New Mode: King of the Hill

After making its debut in the Beta Test Playlist, King of the Hill is now a full-featured game mode, complete with leaderboards, Cinema Replay support, and Challenges. We love this fast-paced, team-based mode and how it enables players to make great use of all of Multiplayer’s core mechanics. Two teams must work together to fight for control of rotating capture points in order to be the first to reach the score limit.

If you played during the Beta Test, we’ve made some changes for King of the Hill’s full release. After reaching the 200 Victory Points score limit, teams must capture a final hill, which we call the Victory Hill. This adds an extra level of strategy and one final chance for a comeback from the losing team.

Alongside this new feature, we’ve also made the following changes:

  • Victory Points per hill increased from 60 to 80
  • KO’ing defenders will award the attacking team 4 Victory Points
  • If a defender is KO’d within the first five seconds after capturing a hill, they will respawn
  • When a team reaches the max Victory Points, they must capture one more hill (known as Victory Hill) to win the match
  • UI revamped to better communicate game rules and readability
  • Duration for Wrath of El Dorado reduced by 50% in this mode; Wrath is still quite powerful but this allows other Mysticals to play a prominent role too

Classic Mode Returns to The Beta Test Playlist

Back by popular request, Classic Mode has returned to the Beta Test Playlist in Multiplayer. For those who missed it when it first launched in November, Classic is a back-to-basics mode that focuses on core combat and movement—there’s no in-game store, Mysticals, or Sidekicks. Find it in the Multiplayer playlist menu today.

New Ranked Season

For the competitive crowd, the next Ranked season has begun, introducing new rewards and improvements to progression. This season, you’ll have a chance to earn a new set of Ranked weapon skins to complement the Ranked Trucker Hats, Shades, and Bandanas offered in prior seasons. What’s more, this season, we’re awarding a special Ranked Huzzah taunt for those that reach Gold rank or higher. Alongside new rewards, we are also improving the Qualifier and Master Rank systems – Qualifiers will focus on points earned, rather than matches won and Master Rank will now have points earned based off an average of matches (  Master Rank will give a match rating averaging your 20 previous Ranked matches). This way, your progress is based entirely on your own performance.

New Qualifier System

  • Qualifiers are now based on points earned rather than matches won.  This allows your personal performance to impact your advancement to a much larger degree.
  • To pass from Gold I to Platinum III, for example, you need to earn at least 35 points over the course of 5 matches.
  • Points earned are still based on your grade for that match, with an S grade on a win awarding the maximum of 40 points.
  • Overachieving on points required will gives you bonus points upon advancing to the next rank (to a maximum of 50 points).
  • Failing a qualifier series with negative points will penalize you by that many points.

Master Rank System Update

  • We have revamped the way points are handled in Master Rank. Instead of being a grind for points, the system focuses on your average performance.
  • Players will enter into Master Rank with a 200 match rating average.
  • At the end of a match, you will receive a Match Rating and this will be factored into your “20 game average”. This average represents your Master Rank points.
  • The maximum possible Match Rating is 1000, and the lowest is -1000. Get better scores, higher kills, revives and assists, while minimizing deaths to maximize your Match Rating.

General:

  • Bug fix for awarded chests not opening for the player
  • Bug fix for players that are unable to connect to multiplayer or are taking a long time to connect to multiplayer
  • Fix for profile data loss
  • Accounts that were affected by the profile loss will have their level restored
  • Fixed several crashes
  • Bug fix for multiplayer audio settings resetting when backing out to the main menu
  • Adjusted weapon skins to fix bright weapon skin issues in certain levels

Survival

Hardcore Mode Introduced

That’s right, if your team is defeated, you’re back to square one. Hardcore Mode is not for the faint of heart—it’ll take skill, close teamwork, and careful strategy.
