Spiral Game Studios has released new trailers to celebrate their Spooktacular Halloween event, which is currently underway right now, for their first-person shooter Orion: Dino Horde. The video is a quick snippet of some of the new features, game modes and maps that players will be available to play on right now.
The new Halloween update sports some hilarious new mobs to shoot down, including some floating ghostly specters, some goofy looking Halloween themed ghouls and a big-headed pumpkin boss that looks like he came straight out of Borderlands 2.
But it's not all just about the spooky treats and the darkly colored palette swap to give the game a dearthly new visual scheme. Spiral Game also added some brand new visual effects to their dinosaur hunting title to help increase the visual prestige of their title. This makes it easier to sell to the media, especially for screenshot and trailer purposes, where people will throw money at the screen because of the over-saturated bloom and lens flare effects.
You can check out the new graphics update in the graphics update trailer below.
For those of you who aren't familiarized with the game, Orion: Dino Horde is a first or third-person dinosaur hunting, cooperative shooter. The game sports a wide range of weaponry for players to acquire through play, as well as special abilities attached to various character classes. Did I mention there's jetpacks? Because yeah, there are jetpacks.
The objective of the game is pretty simple and it's basically like Horde Mode from Gears of War. Players will defend their base's generator from tons of dinosaurs in wave-based rounds. The enemies increase in difficulty per each round but so does the coin. You can use the coin to purchase new weapons, upgrades, abilities and supplies.
Multiple open-world style maps are also available so you can fly, drive and run around while fending off your bases from attacking hordes of dinosaurs. The cooperative title also affords for upgrades and special team tactics if you're into that sort of thing.
Orion: Dino Horde is still a bit of work-in-progress but it's come a long way since it originally debuted as Orion: Dino Beatdown. The game is available right now along with the Halloween Spooktacular event on Steam.
