Attack – Announcement: Launch Early Feb

Ladies and Gentleman,

Tonight we would like to take the opportunity to announce our plans for the Attack system (Kill).

We have now been planning, developing and programming the attack scripts for 3 weeks or so and are edging closer to a release date. We are setting a preliminary date of the first week of February for release of all of these brand new features. However this could move backward or forwards slightly depending on our progress over the next week or so.

What we wanted to do is re-assure you we are working real damn hard on the attack system to try and make it unlike any other gangster attack/kill system you have ever seen.

So what we thought we would do tonight is give you all more of an insight into what we have been up to all this time. All of the following features and upgrades will be coming into the game when Attack is launched and we have also explained a little more about each feature and what it does.

Attack – This is the main feature of the release. Attack is now not a solo feature, your friends and crew members can now pile into a vehicle and go with you! You can choose from a range of different attack intentions i.e. Disrupt, Loot or Attack. Looting will steal cash made from rent that is un-collected from a players turf (please see below for more details on this). Disrupt will damage buildings and thus damage the amount of rent your turf makes you per hour. Attack will do exactly what it says on the tin! You go with the intention to attack the player personally. Depending on his defences of heavies (see below) and Pad upgrades your attack may take several attempts to be completely successful!! Or his defences may just be too strong and you might need to call in the help of all your crew members!

Maintenance Scrapped – After alot of debate we have decided to replace the daily maintenance with a slightly different feature. Rent collecting. Rent collecting means any cash your turf makes will not be added to your characters cash untill you collect it. Also any un-collected rent cash is Lootable by another attack team. Cash can be collected every hour. If you do not collect rent at all in any 48 hour period then your buildings will earn you nothing!

Life Insurance – Remember the time when if you died and you never had the opportunity to get any of your beloved belongings back. Well that time is over! With the new life insurance policies you can get varying degrees of cover so that even if you may die your legacy lives on! You will receive some of your previous characters items and wealth and inherit some of its stats with your new character!

New Vehicles – A few new vehicles will be wheeling there way into the streets of Street Crime with this update for kill as well! So get practising your GTA skills!

Weapons Shop Upgrade – The weapons shop has undergone a massive overhaul, with over 30 new weapons including RPG’s and Sniper Rifles and tonnes of weapon add ons to unlock it’ll sure keep you busy. Guns also have a exp which unlocks and improves the power of the gun when used by yourself depending on your experience with it. New Sidearm and Equipment slots have been added to your inventory so you can equip a sidearm and a grenade if you choose and take them with you on an attack. Extra weapon slots can be unlocked by acheiving certain things within the game and or via credits.

Brand New Shooting Range – Some of you will remember our old shooting range. We took it away from all you lovely people when we had a few problems with it. We have now developed a brand new one which you can take your extensive weaponry from the new weapon shop too and fire away!

Heavies – Your own personal turf defence unit has arrived! To help repel and defend your turf from attacks Heavies are available to train and equip. Heavies can also be sent by crew members to your turf to back you up even when you are not online!

Spies – Want to attack someone? But want to gather as much information as you can before you commit to the attack? Thats where spies come in! Spies can fetch detailed reports from your enemies turfs to inform you of defences. You can get spies working for you and collecting information on enemy turfs simultaneously!

Achievements – A Slight redesign of our achievements section plus a whole new batch of fresh achievements to make.

Attack Alert System – A brand new attack alert system is available including text and email message notification of when you are being attacked. Also brand new to the attack system this time round is the ability for your crew to find out if you are being attacked so they can re-enforce you.

Loads of New Credit Items – We decided our shop was far too bland and scarce so we filled it right to the brim of items to suit pretty much anyone’s needs. We also gave it a bit of a facelift.

Text Messages – Text messages will be able to be sent through street crimes inbox system to your friends anywhere in the world and best of all so long as your friend has enabled his mobile phone on street crime its as easy as clicking ‘send message as text’ from the normal inbox!

Stay tuned!!
