A brand new set of content has launched for the co-op dino hunting game, Orion: Dino Horde. The new content pack includes two new maps – basically night variants of current stages – as well as new items, new customization gear additional patches, a new competition and 10 new Steam Achievements.
The game has had a rough start, especially with the Reddit community, who absolutely destroyed any good will gamers on there may have had towards Spiral Game Studios' latest offerings. There are some who felt it was scheming to change an old game into a new game by re-naming it, adding some new maps, features, weapons, enemies and skills, and then getting a new Metacritic ranking. Since it was done for free, for those who originally owned the game, I'm not complaining, though.
All I have to say is: If you let Activision get away with re-skin jobs with Call of Duty every year, why can't Spiral Game Studios do the same with Orion: Dino Horde? Heck, at least their game doesn't cost $60 and they dodn't charge you $14 to play old maps from the previous game.
Anyway, for those of you do don't shuffle out corporate bias like the Reddit community, Orion: Dino Horde is a multiplayer or single-player survival game. It has similar makings to the likes of Killing Floor but it takes place in fairly large maps. The team at Spiral originally had designed the game as a mod but then decided to go slightly larger scale...just like Killing Floor, DayZ and Dear Esther and countless other mods-turned-real-games before it.
You can pick up the game right now from Steam for only $14.99. If you previously owned Orion: Dino Beatdown the update should automatically key you in to own the sequel (which, some have dubbed a total conversion patch).
For more info feel free to visit the official Steam page. I, for one, see this as a far less offense than the likes of WarZ, which was a pretty big ripoff when it first launched.
