We are introducing the classic ‘Gun Game’ game mode (originally making its debut with Counter-Strike) and we have added our own unique touches and ORION-inspired love with the inclusion of:
NPC A.I Dinosaurs
3 YEARS IN THE WAITING Most importantly the addition of ‘Gun Game’ will mark the re-introduction of class-versus-class-versus-class gameplay back into ORION for the first time in over 3 years (since the ‘ORION: Source Prototype’ on the Source Engine in 2010).
CLASS-BASED GAMEPLAY Each class has their own unique Ability, Grenade Type and Augmentation:
Assault Class Jetpack, FRAG Grenades, Hummer Augmentation.
Support Class Medical Gun, SMOKE Grenades, Stasis Fury Augmentation.
Recon Class Cloaking, EMP Grenades, Power Jump Augmentation.
We are thrilled to be able to start announcing the first official details of the upcoming Jungle DLC for ‘ORION: Dino Horde’ on Steam. The Jungle DLC will be released for FREEon Monday, June 24, 2013.
HAVEN REVEALED To coincide with this announcement we are showcasing the very first official game footage of the upcoming Jungle DLC. This shows off a brand new level called Haven.
NEW LEVEL TYPE - COMPETITIVE (SMALLEST) With the introduction of Haven we are also introducing the third level type into the game: Competitive. This is the smallest level type in the game and supports both new game modes as well as the original extreme PvP modes:
SPIRAL UPDATE - JUNE 2013
We have been extra busy as we finish wrapping up the first DLC pack that officially kicks off the Spiral Summer event. Until that releases we wanted to cover any immediate topics:
01 - ACHIEVEMENT ISSUES? We’ve had some reports that some users had issues with Achievements not showing as properly unlocked in the game. This is being fixed with the release of the Jungle DLC.
02 - STATS ARE BEING RESET We also want to make you aware that we are resetting the game stats with the release of Jungle DLC. We are doing this to celebrate the inclusion of Steam Leaderboards and Spiral Statistic as well as the brand new interface.
03 - COMPETITIONS & SPIRAL REWARDS We will also be launching competitions and rewards based on these new stat tracking systems and we need everyone to be on the same level once it begins.
04 - SPIRAL UPDATE 003 Spiral Update 003 will be included inside of the Jungle DLC for ‘ORION: Dino Horde’. It will include two new map variants as well as other Steam-related content.
05 -GAME VERSION 1.7 A brand new game patch will also be included in the Jungle DLC. This will add, fix and adjust a wide variety of game content.
06 - DEIN PUSHED BACK UNTIL DLC 2 With everything that we are packing into the Jungle DLC we sadly have to slightly push back the introduction of the Dein. She will be making her grand debut in DLC Pack 2 which is scheduled for release in July 2013.
Spiral Game Studios intends to bring the fun and excitement back to the action genre, by focusing on its core values: intuitive gameplay, tight controls, frustration-free designs, and competitive, skill-based challenge. These elements are found in some games; sometimes a game incorporates a few of them. Rarely will you find a game that focuses on every aspect of a "fun" game, and those that do are the games that players still come back to decades after they were made. We hope to stay true to these values by introducing our first project: Orion.
