The long-awaited combat update for the Amazon-set survival game Green Hell has finally arrived.
The headline features of the new patch focus on character interactions with human NPCs. Notably, a new adversary, the spearman, has been incorporated, and tribes now engage in patrol behaviour, including destroying player constructions.
However, the developer, Creepy Jar, has also provided new options for the user to fight back. These capabilities come in the form of new spear and bow weapons, as well as traps and an armour system.
The update also includes a wide array of bugfixes and miscellaneous changes, the full list of which is available here.
However, Green Hell fans on Steam seem not to view the changes in a positive light. Many comments in response to the update complain of the increased difficulty, stating that patrols are too frequent and destructive.
This combat update is the third major content release for the title, following the animal and water updates last year; it is also set to be the last before the v1.0 release, which will bring a fully fledged story mode to Green Hell.
