SDNL: New Game World

We’re wrapping production up on Slaughterday Night Live (SDNL), our new PVP Game World. SDNL features over 31 weapons, and classic Arena gamemodes such as Team Deathmatch, Capture-The-Flag, Team Oddball, Dino Battle, Slasher (a melee only gametype), Insta-gib, Low Grav Snipers, and the standard Arena gameplay with weapon pickups. SDNL beta will launch with 3 unique maps of various sizes and themes. Meadows, Frostbite, and Hinderance are the launch maps. We’re very excited to soon show you what we’ve been hard at work on.

@Johanna continued working on the maps, props, and FPS optimizations with the maps.

@Josh continued working on weapons.

@Lifeless continued working on “Containership”.

@macdguy worked on fixing bugs that were found during internal playtesting. He worked on icons for kills and weapons, as well as implementing adjustment ideas from playtesting, setting up stats and achievements, and the Workshop editor.

@Nuclearxpotato continued working on “Skyline”, a roof-top acrobatic map, as well as various props for SDNL.

@Sketchman worked on making weapon switching predicted (meaning network ping should have no effect on how quickly you can swap weapons), as well as weapon prediction for some other weapons.

@Will continued working on music for the SDNL maps.
