Fear the Wolves released a major update today, that includes new features, a new weapon and system enhancements for the Battle Royale set in the ruins of Chernobyl. New looting rules come in this update as well as mechanisms to keep players discovering new portions of the map. This includes Secret Stashes, which are hidden around the map and feature high-tier loot, sure to give the finder an advantage. These are only unlockable with treasure maps, found in the wilderness.
Some buildings are also now boarded up, requiring the fire axe to break down the door and gather the goods inside. Waiting inside may be the new DMR SOK-94 sniper rifle, optimal at medium to long range. Upgrades have also been applied to many of the game’s premier features. A full pass has been made on wolf behavior and balancing, making them far more dangerous to players and a true PvE challenge. Players can also expect tweaks to weapon balance, shooting feeling, and the addition of rooftop helicopter extractions.
These changes join a host of quality of life tweaks, bug fixes, and minor additions – such as new end and tutorial screens, an improved drop experience, and additional sounds – to answer player demands and improve the game for everyone. The NVIDIA Highlight system has also been integrated, allowing for automatic recording of big plays and huge kills for easy sharing on various platforms.
