Major update for Chaos on Wheels
Overall Game Difficulty
As we more and more talked with you; our players, we come to realization that Chaos on Wheels is a bit too difficult for modern gaming standards. Although we did based difficulty on older games such as Twisted Metal and Vigilante 8, and I’m sure we get it pretty much close, that difficulty is no longer welcome to standard modern player. In the light of that, we’re happy to say we reworked our entire system, tweaked every difficulty variable and make it much easier for new players to get up the speed.
Since sometimes cars felt like “bullet sponges”, we added new option in the settings menu for players that can adjust to get better overall game TTK (time to kill). Option Global Damage Factor, under gameplay settings can be adjusted for all of damages in the game. For those of you who like faster TTK, just set it to HIGH or HIGHEST, for those who like to play on safe and have larger TTK, set it to LOW or LOWEST, and for those who like it as it was, just leave it to NORMAL.
With new camera mechanics we aimed to give players better immersion, a feeling that you’re behind the wheel of the destroying machine you drive. The feel of every acceleration and deceleration, feeling of the drift and for players to feel the power of the car.
Position of the camera
Old camera position
New camera position
New dynamic behavior of the camera, you’ll need to try it yourself in the game.
With the HUD we added some light touches to be more understandable and easier to read. Added some colors, borders and background filling. We changed few icons and added car speed.
We also need to announce that we’ll do whole HUD overhaul in the next update. Stay tuned!
