GTFO has just received its december update, and here is a list of all the changes and fixes added with this patch. This co-op horror shooter was just released a few days ago and fans are thrilled. The game grew from around 2000 players to almost 12000 on its release date. This is one of the first post-launch updates, so expect a lot of changes and fixes from this one. Here's everything new with the December GTFO update.



December GTFO Patch Notes

NEW FEATURES AND CHANGES

  • Added an icon to indicate when there are new Boosters/Clothes.
  • INVENTORY renamed to CLOTHES in the loadout menu.
  • Adjusted the light intensities for shooters, heavy shooters, and hybrid projectiles so they aren't as overwhelming in dark environments.

  • Added impact effects to the shooter, heavy shooter, and hybrid projectiles to improve their feel.

  • Fixed a bug where bots were not inheriting items from human players when they should be.
  • Fixed a bug where robots were not optimally positioned by the "follow" action.
  • Fixed a bug where robots would sometimes drop expedition items in inaccessible places.
  • Fixed a bug where bots miscalculated foam gun ammo usage c.

This update fixed a lot of bugs, ranging from simple issues like bots not climbing certain ladders to performance issues when using the map for too long. Along with these bug fixes, the developers have added more visual features to the game. Now the game features new impact effects, better lighting, and a progress bar to notify players when a bot gives them resources.
