Brand New Map Upcoming for Knives Out
NetEase Games today announced the coming update for Knives Out’s new map
Hong Hong – March 31, 2018 – /GameWire/ Now Knives Out has over 200 million players globally. NetEase has been dedicated to developing new modes and events like Christmas Event, New Year’s Event, and Dark Night Mode, while optimizing the classic Battle Royale gameplay. The recent announcement of the upcoming update in April shows a significant enhancement in graphics, as well as enriched play styles and tactics.
- Mixed Terrains and Enriched Tactics
In Battle Royale, making good use of terrain is critical. The update in April includes a new map with more complex grounds. Players will need to adjust or even change their play style and tactics to stand out. The ability to develop better strategies and tactics will be essential.
The new map has enhanced details that players can interact with and use. New constructions are added to the map, such as rocket launchpad, off-shore drilling platform, ancient castle and many more.
All the new elements can inspire players with different play styles to perform. One moment you are in the middle of a shootout on an off-shore heliport; the next moment you might find yourself infiltrating a building full of campers. Meanwhile, the medieval castle is a fortified structure. Any conflict may turn into a siege.
- Enforced Graphics Performance
Knives Out was designed to be smoothly run on both high-end and low-end cell phones while providing decent image quality. With the development team’s constant effort, next-gen class graphics is available on some of the low-end devices.
From the real-time gameplay video, we noticed considerable graphics improvement. With the help of Occlusion Culling, the new version can have realistic light and shadow effects as well as exquisite textures when running with a high frame rate.
- Evolved Character Movement from Top Motion Capture Technology
Aside from the graphics quality, Knives Out spent altogether 34 days and 10 hours to recapture more than 400 movements. Each action was carefully tuned, making the movements even more natural and realistic.
The update for Knives Out this time will be online in early April. It will also uncover new weapons, modes, and vehicles. With massive new contents and improvement, Knives Out is going to evolve.
