New “Deathspin” Level Added Along with Improvements to Multiplayer Lobby, Dialogue Text Size.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia - December 7, 2010 - Big Sandwich Games has confirmed that a major update for their critically-acclaimed downloadable dragon game HOARDTM is now live on the PlayStation®Network in North America. The v1.01 update includes new content as well as improvements to several key areas of the game.
“This update is the first step in the long-term support plan for HOARDTM,” says Big Sandwich Games’ Design Director Tyler Sigman. “We’re excited that the game has been very well-received by critics and fans, but there are a few items that have been consistently flagged as in need of a bit more polish. We’ve listened to this feedback and the result is an even better game! If you haven’t checked HOARDTM out yet, now is the perfect time to do so.”
The update includes a brand new “HOARD mode” level called “Deathspin”, which allows players to try their survival skills on a spiral map filled with wizard towers and knights.
Major improvements include increasing the text size for on-screen dialogues in HD, enabling friend list leaderboard sorting, and the addition of a new persistent multiplayer lobby which allows gamers to stay grouped up after finishing a game. “The lobby improvements make keeping a good multiplayer group together five million times easier,” quips Sigman.
Other update items include the addition of a restart option within single player levels (for aid in your score-attack attempts) and the appearance of purple princesses, which appear instead of pink any time a maiden is worth 3,000 or more gold. This dress color helps a treasure-hungry dragon tell at a glance which princesses are worth prioritizing.
