Big changes incoming!

Hello everyone! It’s time for a blogpost again! And this time, I bring you news about some big changes that some of us will get to test in the next prerelease so you can have an awesome experience once v125 is out!

Hit “read more” to learn more about these big changes!

Menu changes

“Booo, what is this! You said big changes”

Well, give me a minute here; I’m telling you, there’s big changes! This one might be a small one but it’s pretty awesome. See it yourself:

Now, pretty awesome, isn’t it?

Waves Survival changes

So, apparently some people weren’t too happy with the new Survival gamemode introduced in v123 and how it changed a lot of stuff, and well, how it added “gambling”.

Well, good news for you! And I guess it still is cool news for everyone who was happy with the new Survival anyway. See this!

wkfOZvYIs that… new shops? And more maps?

Wow! Feels like Survival has been fully reworked again. Well it has… almost!

You will still fight waves of enemies and buy stuff constantly if you want to survive, just like in v124 Waves Survival… except this time, you won’t despawn. And that means buying stuff will be done in a different way: You’ll have to scout the map to find and unlock different shops where you can purchase different kinds of stuff.

Up to 6 new shops have been created, and they work in a different way than the old Waves Survival shop did:

  • Each shop will have one kind of items, with better and somewhat more expensive items on the rightmost columns of the shop.
  • Every round all columns will be refilled: If you didn’t buy anything from a shop’s column, the item on the top row will dissapear. So if you want to save a top row item you can’t buy for the next round, consider buying a cheaper item below the one you want!
  • No gambling!

More news next week!

That’s right; come back next week, I’ll have more fresh news ready! I think today’s news are already pretty awesome.

However, if you’re not satisfied, here’s a gif by community member mkster in which he performs amazing tricks using one of the new melee weapons. Watch it! Rewatch it! Watch it again! Watch it ten more times! Once you’ve watched it that many times, I bet your skills will have improved a bit. Awesome, isn’t it?

So, see you next week!

  1. Svenson :

    I really like the new menu. I liked the idee of the old menu and the preview for the maps but it never really worked, did it? I installed Cobalt on my SSD( kingston SSDnow V300) and the preview took ages to load.
    I really am a big fan of the changes to waves survival, i haven’t really play a lot of waves survival becouse either the maps are way to easy or i was unable to beat them even with a friend. Normaly the problem was that RNGsus didn’t gave me any good weapons. more often then not i wouldn’t be able to buy decent weapon or if i could i didn’t get any ammo.
    I am unable to say how exited i am to see new melle weapons,i have allways been a big fan of unconventional weapons (like everweapon that isn’t a fully automatic rifle :D ). I’m wrong in the assumption that there a currently only two melle weapons (Force device & Phaser) ?
    Nice Blogpost keep it up :)

  2. The guy who stole a pirates hat :

    “69%” ~> last gif
    Durability on weapons ?

    Aww man, I wish I could play test..
    I play cobalt so much I can practically identify the bugged achievements.

  3. janeator :

    I dislike the current (v124) thumbnail system a lot as well, that’s why I think this is awesome :D
    As for melee weapons, IIRC in v124 there also is the Force Device and the fist by default :)

    Yes, melee weapons do have durability – that only seems to apply to the new ones tho, I think. And honestly I like it that way.

  4. [MT] :

    Smiles all the way.

    Keep up the good work boys!

    so…….any idea on a release date? maybe a rough one?

  5. Nature :

    If you see on gif, the cobalt’s mouth are moving, so he used the angry emote! oh and also good that wave survival now fixed without gamble….. dont want to lose items again

  6. RedMser :

    It’ll still be a while, there’s way too many bugs in it as of now, I tell ya!

  7. Gort :

    This is a nooby question, but how can I update my game to 125? It does not promt me when I log in.

  8. Gort :

    Just realized it’s not out yet. Sorry!

  9. boyikr :

    Love how many Melee weapons are coming out!

  10. OurDarkestFears :
