Chrome Patch Plans

Techland sends word of plans for a big Chrome patch that will add a bunch of new maps, some new vehicles, and new gameplay modes to their science fiction first-person shooter. Here's the deal:

Having taken into account players’ suggestions, Techland releases their new Update for Chrome. Although it fixes some minor game issues it’s something much more than just a patch.

The most important changes are new multiplayer game modes and new maps featuring them as well as new vehicles that can be used there. The maps names are: Autobahn, Deadlock, Chillout, TreasureIsland2, Carbius, Skirmish, Battledust2 and Soilent2. This makes 8 of them which actually doubles the number of available multiplayer maps in the game. Two new vehicles have been added. One is ArmoBeatle Mark 4 which takes 6 people onboard (together with a driver and a gun operator) and can be a great help for massive infantry attacks. The other is Speeder which is a very fast one-man vehicle that can be used for recon missions or flag interception purposes.

The update also features the All-Seeing Eye game matchmaking support which is a good news for the on-line gaming community. The new server console commands and the ability of controlling the server from a game client will also make players’ life easier.

Techland and Chrome publishers announce that a lot of new game Internet servers will be set up soon. This together with the upcoming free dedicated server software will allow all Chrome fans make use of all the new features and maps that the update introduces.
