Default ZPS 1.6 is out now! Get it via steam!

The Zombie Panic team has been hard at work, but would still like to bring the fans features that they have requested. And at the same time, we know that variety adds a little spice to the mix.

Therefore, we have just released ZPS v1.6, which introduces several features. Features include a new gameplay mode called "Hardcore" mode. The round is shortened to five minutes, and difficulty is increased extremely for the survivor team. This mode can be enabled via a cvar, or via a map name's prefix. Below are a few screenshots showing off one of the more startling enhancements in hardcore mode, as well as the timer.


In addition to this feature, we have added double-width slots for large weapons (visible in the screenshot above), chatbox messages that indicate who issued a voice command, and a few features to eliminate current gameplay exploits. A full changelog can be found here.

Thanks,
ZPS Development team

This is a new and separate game mode. This doesn't alter normal ZPS at all. Normal zombies with infection is still not something we will be implementing. Instead, this makes carriers more fearsome in hardcore.

The game mode is just for fun anyway, it's not really meant to be taken seriously. Play it and lol, or if you want to play to win just skip it. If you take the mode too seriously, you're going to just hate it.

I don't see this possible, people who get infected turn, when they turn they will beable to infect like, at least 5 people, when those 5 people turn, they can infect the rest of the team.

Hardcore, no. Impossible, yes.

well the mode seems fun for 5 minutes then i got bored. i m not playing for win but for fun but i dont like it. when i was a "legend member" in the server with 100% infection and normal zombies infect was already hard but funny, now that new mode its just lame in my opinion.

also the 2 slots for a mp5 or a shooty i dont agree.


oh i forgot now be prepared for the 100 cabin maps with 200 m4,aks,revolver and grenades for that mode

but is only my opinion, i m not demanding nothing this is your mod so your work, but the fun for zps vanish since 1.4 (i want 1.25 back without steam lol)
