The folks at Madfinger Games have given us details about an update that’s coming next week for their online cover-based shooter Shadowgun: DeadZone. It’s a biggie. First up, they’ve added a new tutorial to the game. Online shooters can be harsh for newbies, and they’re hoping the tutorial will help them ease into the action.
The update will contain four new maps to house the game’s Gears of War-style shooting, along with five new weapons. Daily challenges will also be added, giving players a new way to rack up currency.
They’ve also added “boosters,” which give players an edge for a limited time. For instance, one booster gives you a damage bonus, while another one turns you momentarily invisible. On the other hand, if you manage to kill another player while he or she is using a booster, you get extra gold for the kill.
If that sounds like a good time, you’ll want to keep an eye out for the Shadowgun: Deadzone update coming sometime next week.
