You have been amazing BLAST FAM throughout this journey, and we look forward to the exciting next chapter in our story. LFG 🚀

Let’s dive into the FUN new features of the latest Mainnet Game Update! 🧩 ⤵️

✨ New Features ✨

🖼 New! Way to play with NFTs!

  • Once NFT’s in the game are connected with the Polygon’s Mainnet, players are will be able to trade openly on the Blast Hub.
  • This means you will now be playing with items you actually OWN 🤩

📱New! Game Icon

  • Do you remember when we asked you to vote for your favourite game icon?
  • Well, the votes are in and we have implemented the icon that you guys WANTED. 🥳

💰 New! Currency added to the game — Coins

  • Keep the eyes open into future updates to see what you can do with this new currency… 👀

🤯 New! Mutators [Custom Games only]

• 🔨 Hammer Time

No guns will be present, ONLY Hammers.

• 🧭 Absolute Accuracy

All weapons will have perfect accuracy, aside from weapons with arc fire (like shotguns) which will always act as if you had stationary angle of fire

🪄 New! COOL & improved UI/UX

We will be updating some parts of the game’s look in each update. In this build we have:

🪄 New “Game Mode Selection” screen.

🪄 New Updated “Equipment Overview” screen & “Match Ended” visual

🪄 New discord button — so can now quickly jump to the Discord server right from the game.

🪄 New Updated “Custom Game” option is now part of this new screen.

🪄 New some small option windows have also been updated to the new style.

🛠 Systems update 🛠

  • Haptic (device’s vibration) now happens when you hit opponents, and not when you receive damage. There’s also a different vibration when you kill an opponent. If you’re not a fan of this feature — you can disable the vibration in the game settings.
  • You can now see your ammo bar even if you are carrying a melee weapon.
  • You can now hold the right stick without dragging to shoot in the direction of your movement.
  • Now the system rewards the player more consistency if there are few players in the match.
  • Bots now have 3 levels of difficulty and also changing their trophies accordingly: around 1000, 1100, and 1200
  • Deathmatch is no longer available as a Casual game mode in rotation. We decided to remove it for now to focus all our time and effort on Battle Royale game modes and other relevant systems.
  • You can still play Deathmatch in a Custom Game but we are pausing any support for the Deathmatch, so it might not work reliably. The last change we made to Deathmatch is accessibility to bring your loadout gear (but not a gun) into the Deathmatch.

📈 Improvements 📈

➡️ Revamped the re-connection and connection lost system.

  • Now the game allows to use the main menu while offline (still requires to be online to open the game and play a match)
  • Now the game will attempt to reconnect automatically to the servers even if losing the connection for 1 sec
  • Added feedback to the Game HUD to show the player if he/she is losing connection to the server or the lag is high
  • Server and Game client connection is now much more stable

➡️ In Custom Games you will see “None” in a dropdown list if no mutator is selected in the field

➡️ We did a lot of performance improvements to make the game run smoother in all devices across the board. Now the main menu and the match have a better frame rate and should have a better experience to all players

➡️ Within the session, your choice of settings in a Custom Game is remembered, as well as a last game mode you chose to play in

➡️ We got your feedback about the state of accuracy in the game, so we have tuned the accuracy of all weapons in order to allow them to be more accurate whilst moving. Additionally, we have introduced a new mechanic, where some weapons will gain increased range whilst standing still and aiming. To adjust for those changes we’ve made some balancing changes with weapons. More details are in the Balancing Changes section.

➡️ The home screen animations of the rewards UI/UX have been improved

➡️ Now the hammer ammo bar shows the player ammo instead of the animation cooldown

➡️ Improved the quit option during the game. Now players can only leave the match if is either a custom game match or the player is dead
