Standoff: Lockdown | Update 1.5

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

It's been a while, hasn't it? Anton and I apologize for taking so much time to get this update out. As our budget is very limited, we are unable to spend a lot of time on this project, due to personal life, school and work. But we're doing it, don't you worry. Although updates do take months, we are excited about Standoff: Lockdown and we're happy to have such a great community as we do right now. 

Now, let's talk about the update!

As we mentioned on our discord, we were in the process of releasing an update which included driving physics & its mechanics. It's nearly it's perfection and it is included in this update. After we were done with it, we figured it would be a great idea to add player's spawn point: custom made house which is not only fully furnished, but also gorgeous. I mean, check it out yourself:

When you start the game, you'll be spawning inside the house (as of right now). To access the "bunker" with the shooting range/etc from the previous build, there's a bunker access to the back of the house. Just look around, you'll figure it out.

Now that we've got the house and the bunker out of the way, let's talk about the main update.

 

You are currently able to drive one personal vehicle, which is essentially a Ford Victoria. In Standoff: Lockdown, it's called "Fart Victory". Don't ask why. Controls are simple. Come to the driver's side of the vehicle, press "Enter" to access the vehicle. Press "C" to change camera view. We've implemented interior camera as well, which is currently being worked on. Most of the dash gauges should be working as you could see in the preview above. You are also able to finally experience the whole open map of the Standoff: Lockdown world. It's fucking beautiful, check it out yourself!

Aside from that, I've finished writing pause menu script which I completely forgot to implement; so that's something that will be coming within next update (small one). Also, main menu, loading screen and other minor things do look like shit. Reason as to why is because we couldn't postpone this update any longer. It's just not fair to those who have pre-ordered the game. We apologize for the wait once again.

Now, that's out of the way.. What's next? Well, first things first, we will finish up those things I've mentioned above. Make things look pretty to put it simple. That shouldn't take much but as I said, we have other obligations so we will be working on that as time permits. Hopefully we'll get it out of the way as soon as possible (this month). After that, we will begin focusing on NPC's (AI). This time, we will try to show more previews on AI's, so everyone could see its progress.

This update is going to be available for everyone who has pre-ordered Standoff: Lockdown and for those who have purchased "Founders Edition" of the original game. If you are one of those, you should be able to access the download from your account. If for some reason you don't see the update, reach out to our support. We will figure it out in no time!

Lastly, Anton and I personally wanted to thank everyone for an amazing support and sticking around. It means a lot to us and our project. Till the next time!
