From Press Release:
Montréal, CANADA – June 20, 2023 – Independent Canadian game developer Behaviour Interactive is excited to reveal its first major content update for Meet Your Maker which will be available June 27 on all platforms. Sector 1: Dreadshore will introduce a new environment and expand the game’s toolbox of traps, guards, weapons, suits, and blocks to give players more ways than ever to engineer or evade death. To celebrate the launch of this game-changing content, the Meet Your Maker team will offer players the chance to claim the DLC’s Arsenal Pack for free during the first two weeks following release, until July 10 11:59PM EDT.
“Our team is incredibly excited by the positive reception of our most recent game. More than 1 million players have already experienced Meet Your Maker and built millions of amazingly creative Outposts across the wasteland,” said Senior Creative Director Ash Pannell. “Since launch, player creativity has been off the charts and we’re thrilled to now be giving our community even more twisted tools to push the limits of their imagination.”
Build and raid in a completely new environment
The new DLC will enhance the game’s co-op and single-player experience with a foggy, menacing new environment for players to immerse themselves in. Far from the Red Sands, on the murky remains of the New England coastline lies Dreadshore, home to a sinister Sanctuary situated in a repurposed lighthouse. Beneath its surface, a vast network of prisons and laboratories were built where unspeakable scientific experiments were conducted on hundreds of captive clones.
This new environment, with its gloomy, oppressive coastal flourishes, will be visually unlike anything seen before in Meet Your Maker. It arrives with a new themed Deco Pack, and an Arsenal Pack which includes a new Custodian, trap, guard, and weapon:
1. NEW DECO PACK: Tempest Cove
Players will be able to build Outposts using a brand-new free deco pack that matches the visual themes of the Dreadshore. Rusted metal railings, water-damaged wood, bellows that fill and deflate, and a set of decals featuring the salt-worn designs of a coastal shelter will give Builders the freedom to create a completely new atmosphere for their Outposts.
2. NEW CUSTODIAN: Nautilus
A Custodian suit with disturbing origins tied to the Dreadshore will also be available to players. According to local urban legend, Nautilus was said to have emerged from the lighthouse Sanctuary, dripping blood, wearing what resembled an ancient diving suit. With its hulking profile, this new Custodian suit enhances the effects of defensive weaponry, giving players a whole new way to approach challenging Outposts.
3. NEW TRAP: Sentry Beam
Builders will also gain a brand-new trap, complete with mods, that opens the door to incredible new kills and darkly-creative trap combos.
The Sentry Beam, developed to contain the lighthouse Sanctuary’s prisoners, uses motion tracking to lock onto a target and emit a narrow beam of super-heated amplified light. The trap’s rapid delivery makes it an excellent choice for engaging fast moving targets. Should the beam miss its mark, it will ricochet multiple times, providing even more opportunity for a kill.
4. NEW GUARD: Ravager
A vicious new guard, the Ravager, will be introduced for both Builders to command, and Raiders to contend with.
A disturbing byproduct of the lighthouse Sanctuary’s genetic experiments, The Ravager simultaneously fires several projectiles in a scattershot attack that’s more difficult to evade than a single bolt.
5. NEW WEAPON: Demolition Cannon
Raiders will gain another powerful weapon to add to their loadout when braving Meet Your Maker’s toughest Outposts. Powerful and portable, the Demolition Cannon delivers an explosive payload in a reusable shell for a localized blast that causes tremendous damage.
“We’re thrilled to bring all the exciting new Sector 1: Dreadshore content to Meet Your Maker,” added Pannell. “This new environment and all the tools that come with it are something we’ve meticulously crafted, and we can’t wait to see how players react and adapt to the new gameplay elements we’re adding. We believe the new content will provide players with additional avenues to outsmart one another and maintain an invigorating and dynamic experience!”
This new update doesn’t just introduce fresh new ways to build and raid deadly fortresses, it also comes with several quality-of-life improvements and bug fixes to make Meet Your Maker even better:
- For starters, the game will now recognize kills against Raiders who force quit or otherwise disconnect from the game, giving Builders a more accurate representation of how deadly their base is.
- Another highly requested improvement gives Builders the ability to refill Prestige 10 bases forever and keep them online.
- Other notable updates include a rebalancing of ranking tiers, updated tutorials, and Phoenix Pods being added to player’s inventory by default.
