From Deceit Wiki

Hello! Have you missed us? Since our last patch 6 weeks ago we've been hard at work overhauling the entire game mode and re-working almost every core system in the game. We're releasing this preview of our major changes to Deceit in order to give our early access players a sneak peak of our full game release, and to gather any feedback for tweaks we can make.

Objectives[edit | edit source]

  • There are now levers scattered across each floor that are required to activate the objectives on that floor
  • Pulling a lever gives you a waypoint to the appropriate objective
  • Keep an eye out for the Infected as they can deactivate levers before the objective has been started
  • Objectives that require two people to complete do not have levers associated with them
  • Completing objectives now gives you the reward but also increases the length of the day period, and reduces the length of the dark period
  • A new objective type has been added which requires you to damage three targets (knifing works as well as shooting)

Consumables[edit | edit source]

  • You can find ammo scattered on the floor around the map
  • You can find armour on the floor around the map
  • Keep an eye out for Infected as they can now find blood bags on drip stands around the map to gain strength (no longer objective rewards)

Respawning[edit | edit source]

  • Whilst downed other players can deal damage to vote on your elimination
  • After being downed you will now respawn somewhere else on your current floor after an amount of time
  • Your down time will increase for 5 seconds per vote cast on you so other players have time to vote on you
  • The votes cast on you reset when you get back up
  • The amount of votes required to eliminate someone becomes less per floor
  • Players other than the person that downed you can interact you to revive you on the spot

Escaping[edit | edit source]

  • At the end of each blackout there will be routes waypointed to get to the next floor that will open automatically, you no longer need to get a key
  • If you don't progress through the map fast enough after the lights come back on a toxic gas will start to kill you (which also affects the Infected now)
  • On the top floor there will be an escape lever (gold outline) that when pulled causes the lights to go out indefinitely and giving the Infected full strength
  • The escape lever can only be pulled when the other objective levers are activate, the Infected cannot deactive this lever
  • Once the escape lever is active you should head towards the waypointed escape door and interact with it which after a few seconds will open so you can escape

Win Condition[edit | edit source]

  • Players no longer win as a team, scoring is based on individual play:
  • An Innocent can win by escaping
  • An Infected can win if nobody escapes

Ranking System[edit | edit source]

  • From completing games you will now gain marks towards ranks:
  • If you win you will gain 2 marks
    • Innocent get an additional 1 bonus mark if someone escapes with them
    • Infected get an additional 1 bonus mark if the other Infected survives with them
  • If you lose you will lose 1 mark
  • There are different bands of ranks:
    • Bronze (ranks 20-16) requires 2 marks to rank up
    • Silver (ranks 15-11 requires 3 marks to rank up
    • Gold (ranks 10-6) requires 4 marks to rank up
    • Platinum (ranks 5-1) requires 5 marks to rank up
    • Diamond (rank 0) we will be adding an ELO system for players at this rank to compete on the highscores
  • If you lose a mark at zero marks within a rank you will derank with 1 mark at that rank, though you cannot derank out of a band
  • At the end of each month your rank will reset and you will be given a head-start towards the next months ranking

Character Leveling[edit | edit source]

  • You will gain XP from doing various things during a game
  • XP is character specific and allows you to level characters up to level 7, unlocking rewards at each
  • You can continue to gain XP when you're at level 7 and work towards further crates being given
  • The main benefit from leveling characters is that each level gives access to new trait slots, though it is worth mentioning that traits are currently disabled

Environment[edit | edit source]

  • Lots of general polish to the asylum (graffiti, debris, general cleanup etc)
  • Added an elevator shaft to one of the staircases
  • Added new route up to the top floor through one of the staircases
  • Added new 'Lift Lobby' room that connects the new route up from the middle floor to the canteen
  • New lighting pass that drastically improves general FPS in the asylum

Animation[edit | edit source]

  • Fixed issue where items weren't showing in characters hands on the main menu
  • Fixed animation ragdoll issue when downed in third person
  • Fixed skinning issues to Change, Rachel, Lisa, and their clothing
  • Added 'into' and 'out of' transition blends to iron sights
  • Fixes to third person pistol, camera and shotgun locomotion blending
  • Fixes to the first person shotgun animations, keeping hands attached to the weapon

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

  • Upgraded to the newest version of CryEngine (version 5.3.2)
  • Added 22 new victory/defeat poses to the loot crates
  • Reworked almost every UI element (both in game and on menu)
  • Removed the concept of "crippling" after being downed
  • Players names and ranks now display on the loading screen
  • Moved a lot of player spawns
  • Moved and added new CCTV cameras
  • Players now spawn with just 6 bullets
  • Added a grain effect to the CCTV cameras
  • Added voice and length of down periods to name tags-
  • Added indication for how long you're tracked for
  • If you reach 0 run energy whilst holding shift it will no longer stutter
  • You can no longer see your own name tag
  • Fixed a bug where stamina wouldn't regenerate at the same rate after reviving
  • Name tags are now hidden when you're downed

Features[edit | edit source]

  • The Gamemaster has opened up a new section of the asylum! A new cell block has been unlocked on the middle floor which adds two more ways up to the top floor, as well as a new place for objectives to spawn.
  • Three new scrubs unlocks have been added (Lean, Bahroo and Marla).
  • The escape door waypoint now shows the progress on how long until the door opens
