Sandswept Studios has released alpha build 004 for The Dead Linger, introducing the largest amount of content in a single patch to date. This update introduces changes to just about everything in The Dead Linger, from the loading screen to changes in the game world itself.
One of the more notable new features is the ability to aim down the sights when wielding various weapons. Along with the addition of ADS, hip firing is less accurate now, rewarding players for taking the time to play smartly and place accurate shots. Another big change to firearms is ammo consumption. Weapons will now require ammunition, which will be consumed from your inventory upon reloading.
As small as these additions might seem, it is what we love about following The Dead Linger development...this is game design and progression at its earliest, rawest stages and we love it.
As you can imagine, the full changelog in this beast of an update is massive so make sure you visit http://www.thedeadlinger.com/archives/1366 to read it and get instructions on how to update your client if you're in the alpha testing.
