A new set of implants has been released and they offer even more benefits than before. The new implants are the Perception Implant, Violence Implant, Hyper Implant, Ironskin Implant, and the Salvage Implant. These implants can only be looted in the wasteland or purchased from the credit shop. Visit the Implants page for more information.

This year we'll be celebrating Easter with maximum carnage. The Easter Evisceration event stats on Friday the 25th of March (Easter Friday) and continues until the early hours of Tuesday March 29th.
During this time, all players will be able to hunt a rare class of infected that will only appear through Easter. What's more, they'll be dropping some unique, never seen before, Easter themed loot. On top of all that, players will receive +100% EXP, +100% Ammo/Cash Loot and +100% Weapon/Armour Loot Chance for the entire 4 days. Don't miss it! =)
Make them bleed their own blood this Easter!

So back in January I announced a new game we're publishing for a developer friend of mine titled March of the Living. Here is the old post in case you're curious:
[https://www.blogger.com/goog_1262066465 ] http://fairview.deadfrontier.com/onlinezombiemmo/index.php?topic=889852.0
Luckily we managed to find three great event designers from the Dead Frontier community (Lys, Clayton and Roxas13) and the game is now getting close to completion.
We've just posted it up on Steam Greenlight here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=605952563
If you guys could find the time to give us Yes vote it would be much appreciated. Also if you have any comments or questions about the game the game feel free to post here and I'll do my best to answer them. Thanks guys :-)

I'm just writing to let you know that the maximum level possible in Dead Frontier has just been raised to 325. For every level after 220 you will receive 1 proficiency point. In addition once you hit level 325 you'll get lifelong access to the new X-Dusk gear and 4 extra implant slots, making a total of 16.
I know you guys have been waiting for this update for a quite a while, so thanks for being so patient. :-)
Stay tuned for news of more Dead Frontier updates coming soon!

It's finally here!
I'm proud to announce that the Dead Frontier: Wastelands update is now live. If you're level 100 or over you can visit the Wastelands by travelling to the new brown area of the map located just below Precinct 13. This area is something completely new for Dead Frontier, a place where end-game players will face their ultimate challenge.
Although loot spots are scarce in the Wastelands, your chances of finding something good are far higher. Each time you loot you'll have an 8x higher chance of finding a level 120 weapon, armour or implant than you would in the southern end-zone. You also will not find lower level 'junk' loot here. On top of this you'll receive 25% more EXP for every point of damage you inflict on the enemy.
The Wastelands feature huge hordes of infected well beyond anything you've seen in DF previously. These hordes are made up four brand new types of mutation that'll be sure to keep you on your toes. And if that wasn't bad enough you'll also face several boss tier enemies mixed in with the normal infected. If you're really unlucky you'll come face to face with the "Devil Hound", a super tough boss creature which at the time writing this, 3 days after release, nobody has managed to kill yet. Could you be the first?
In the Wastelands PvP is mandatory and you'll earn approximately 10x more points than you would in the arena. This means you'll need to be extra vigilant for those seeking your head. The good news is you cannot hit members of your own clan, which means team-work will be the key to surviving this warzone.
So if you haven't logged in for a while I implore you to come back and give the Wastelands a look. It really is a lot of fun and great challenge for hardcore players.

In the past couple of weeks I've made some fairly major changes to Dead Frontier. You can now play the game with the much improved stand-alone client, I've blocked most hacks/cheats/exploits and I've launched some new types of bosses. However this just the tip of the iceberg in terms of updates I've got planned during the next few months. Here are just some of them:
Dusk Prices (get the bad news out of the way first I say!) These will be increased fairly soon, especially the Ultra Boost. If you are thinking about getting any of these soon I recommend doing it in the next week or so.
Clan Upgrades The owner of a clan can exchange their victory points for bonuses which will extend to the entire clan. So for example, 100 victory points might buy a +1% EXP bonus for every clan member. This is long overdue and will therefore be implemented very soon.
The Wasteland Rather than simply extending the existing city, I've decided to make a brand new type of area altogether. The Wastelands will be a large patch of desolate arid terrain designed to be the ultimate survival challenge for elite Dead Frontier players. Loot spots in the Wastelands will be few and far between, but the rewards will be far greater. There will be no large outposts, so barricading will be an absolute necessity (dying will no longer return you to a main outpost). PVP will be forced on, and PvP points earned here will be greater than anywhere else. Truely gigantic zombie hordes (made possible by the faster client) will roam the Wastelands, making the ultimate challenge for hardcore players.
Implants These are a new type of item that will grant bonuses in a similar way to drugs (such as bonus exp, damage, speed etc). Simply having them in your inventory will allow you get the benefits which will add together. So for example if you have ten +1% Damage implants in your inventory then you'll get +10% damage on top of any other bonuses you already have. Similar bonuses will be made available for improving loot chances/amounts (Ie +1% Cash). Obviously you'll need to balance the need for a stronger character with inventory space. Implants will be both lootable and used as rewards for the various Dusk competitions.
New Arenas I'm planning to add some new arena locations that will cycle during the day to add some more variety.
I have not listed any time scales here since I am notoriously bad at estimating them. However I am secretly hoping to have this all ready before Halloween (aka Christmas :P)

So as you are all probably aware by now, Google Chrome is ending support for the old Unity webplayer in the next few days. It is also rumoured that other browsers are likely to follow suit in the next few years, potentially leaving DF unplayable.
In response to this the obvious choice was to convert Dead Frontier to use Unity's new WebGL technology, which would of allowed us to continue running DF in the browser. However after spending a lot of time on the process I soon came to realize that WebGL really isn't viable in the short term. Support for various features across browsers is heavily fragmented and the performance was quite simply horrible.
Had I of forged ahead with WebGL I'd probably be presenting Chrome users today with a massively dumbed down version of the game, lacking key features such as multiplayer. It would probably be full of bugs and run hideously slowly on even fast PCs. It would also mean that Dead Frontier would still be totally at the mercy of the browser developers, who could at any moment decide to drop support for certain features and subsequently cause us tons of headaches.
Therefore I've decided to simply make the Dead Frontier client available as a downloadable. The benefits of this are:
- Way better performance than even the existing webplayer version - Far more stable, you'll encounter far less random crashes - Easily change screen resolution and controls to your liking - Wastes less bandwidth as the game is stored on your PC at all times - Regardless of what browser developers do, DF will keep working
There are no plans to scrap the existing webplayer for those of you who still prefer to play in the browser. However you will need to use a non-chrome browser for the time being. At some point I will convert Dead Frontier to use WebGL as well, but I'm guessing this will need to be a couple of years down the road when the technology has matured enough to run DF properly.
