The ever-evolving multiplayer shooter Arcadegeddon, from the makers of Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed, ILLFonic, Inc., has unleashed a new wave of content with the latest Arcadegeddon 1.2.0 Update.

Arcadegeddon 1.2.0 Update unleashes a new wave of content

Arcadegeddon 1.2.0 offers a new Horde and Boss Rush mode, along with new mini-bosses, faster and more powerful Berserker enemies, and new puzzles to solve.. Arcade saviors can deploy nine new weapons, with three new quality levels, utilize new Acid Burn weapons, and deploy new hacks, plugins, and cosmetics in the quest to save Gilly’s arcade from the evil Fun Fun Co.

The first big change to the game is Balance. Enemies now scale health and damage along with the stage and difficulty. We also overhauled the enemy Affix system which allows enemies to spawn with modifiers such as shields or elemental damage/resistances. Updating enemy scaling also means we had to rebalance all of the weapons in game. In addition to the damage tweaks and updates for all weapons, we also reworked the feel and viability. Shotguns, Pistols, and SMG’s are all now tuned to be much more viable at close to medium range and not as effective at longer distances. Assault Rifles and Sniper Rifles are now primarily effective at medium to long ranges.

To go along with all of the new enemy scaling we have also added multiple new systems to help the player scale their own power to help combat the increased run difficulty. New plugins and hacks have both been added to give players more agency over their play style, as well as the Hack Terminal which will let players craft builds with the loot they find during runs. Vendor tiles have also been updated with new interactions and more loot. Vendors now spawn 2 hacks to choose from, and a Weapon Kiosk was added that lets you upgrade one weapon in your inventory, for a cost.

Outside of the Adventure run, we have also added 2 new game modes: Horde Mode and Boss Rush. Horde Mode pits players against endless waves of enemies and challenges on some brand new maps. Boss Rush is a never ending sequence of boss arena fights. How many can you survive? The leaderboards have also been upgraded with new stats and contain dedicated boards for these new modes.

This is just barely scratching the surface of all of the new stuff we crammed into Arcadegeddon with this absolutely massive update!. Two of our personal favorites are the new Ready Up system in Gilly's and the 4 new emote slots on the emote wheel.

Arcadegeddon is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC.
