New maps and characters are on their way to District 187: Sin Streets in the game's largest update since launch. The update packs in three new maps called Chem Lab, One Hope Clinic, and Underground. Underground will have players moving in tight underground pathways with long stretches of no cover other then structural pillars to hide behind. In stark contrast to Underground, One Hope Clinic pits players against each other in an actual hospital where the cover comes in the form of hospital beds.

Red blood also made its way into the game. While that may not seem very not worthy in itself you should note that blood was always in the game, however it was white. Whether this secretly meant District 187 characters were instead some alternate humans in some cross dimension plane where blood is normally white, we may never know.

In addition to the new maps and red blood; District 187 also added 10 new weapons and two unique characters called Jackson and Lawrence who are apparently twins gone somewhat admittedly cliched separate paths. Unfortunately these characters are only unlockable through the cash shop. They do however at least also provide XP and Gold Boosts.

You can check out the new screens below.

i agree with ioulios and ugurano comment... Not about that games is a total sh!t or crap but the region blocked... 5 months ago this games if F2P Globally ( International = All people from around the world can join ), i have play it for 3 month testing CBT and have some friend works as Gm of the games, my friend tell me they( company who hold the games ) gonna do region block becoz they wanna focus the games on NA/SA and EU only for more player to join their server but what they did is backstab them... My friend who works with them say before region block there were 3000 player on the server and rising but after region block players can be count to 1000 or less players... Less player mean few server, what an idiot method to do region blocking... they did the region block at the time Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Triple AAA games came out, which idiot dunno how to manage about marketing their own games...

After that, i summit report and complaint but what did they say, they say their server only focus on NA/SA and EU only... The Global CBT was only to test their server, what? they think Asian country got crappy internet... Asian is the largest money grubbing can America get by promoting their games,beside all great mmofps and mmorpg came from Asian especially South Korea...

Serve them right if their server shut down and i hoping Garena will buy that games...

When i played this game well... This game reminds me of COD without the special powers. People, working alone to get their own hidden agenda's whether its high kills or a good K/D ratio, no team or squad feel, no working together, just a normal everyday F2P FPS. Like all F2P FPS games it has its bad sides and good sides, oddly enough people play it for 30 minutes to a week and say they have seen it all. I've played A.V.A for 200+ hours and i still get surprised with new things i discover in the game, whether its a gun that works a split second better when moving with less recoil or something like that...
If you like FPS games, give it your own tests and if you don't like it then you don't like it. Combat arms was huge 2 years ago especially around my area but i couldn't stand it, something about hit markers that pissed me off, so i found that game wasn't for me. This game too isn't for me but that's not to say, like combat arms, this game won't work for others. I'll just stick to my CS:GO and planetside 2 for now.

seeing that Chivalry Medieval Warfare got free weekend on steam, I tried it and it looks like it would be type of game that has to be free to play. What do you think Magicman, will it ever go free to play?

I tried it for a good bit and i must admit it was pretty fun and simple like Zhao said, the guns are what they are though and even a person with a regular AR in that game can still land some pretty decent shots if they time and position it right. On another hand the only problem is the servers where people get mixed up and jump onto a server that is usually not suitable for them to join but, it's not all that bad because there are people that go to different servers to meet new people or to find that bigger fish to fight against. I know being an eastern american player on BLR i like to casually jump to western servers just to see who is on and score a few rounds there to see how the skill match is differential. I hope the game don't die because it gives lets say more unfortunate players that can't afford high-end PC's to try a FPS that isn't that very demanding and still enjoy the entertainment they want created out of an FPS. If we are going to always debate about the nothing new nothing specials then releases in the future would always seem disappointing but, you have to try it before you deny it :)...

Actually Zhao, I have played it the closed beta. I played for a month. I quit after open beta. There is just nothing good about this game. No sprint, gameplay is like CS, imbalanced weapons, bad community, Foreigners on the NA servers when the are EU servers, people with shitty pings lagging all over the place is what makes the game bad. If you want to shoot some stuff then go play any other FPS than this pile of crap. There are much better FPS's out there. Like Blacklight, Tribes Ascend, A.V.A, Arctic Combat, heck, even Combat Arms is better. The game is nothing new, nothing special. I don't even know why people actually spend money on this excuse they call a game.

unfortunatelly this game has so many people commenting negative about it(like the 3 above me)that make this games reputation bad(though i higly doubt any of the bad comments about it in general have every even tryed this game for at least 30m to 1h)i played this game and still play it and i will keep playin it i hope it doesn't die and i am glad its getting a new update(major update for the game)its a really simple and fun game to play u just get a gun and start shooting people thats all simple as that which is why i like it and play it and from as for the first comment at the top ur wrong my friend there is no such thing as people hacking in the game
