//Developer UpdateCLIP LOADER
Far too long have game design mantras like „easy to learn, hard to master“ oppressed the hardcore gaming crowd. ZMBE 2 is going to throw accessability out of the window and replace it with confusing hardcore depth in gameplay.
ZMBE 2 gives the player a choice. Be smart, be stupid.
Therefore, ZMBE 2 will be the first zombie-themed FPS mod that allows you to be stupid with your gun. Mess up your reload, forget to press the slide catch, reach for the wrong magazine, have your gun jam in the wrong moment or even experience it having a last fatal stoppage that literally breaks the gun.
Skeptic player: Reach for the wrong magazine? What could that be?
In ZMBE 2 each pistol comes with 5 magazines. Instead of the bag of bullets featured in HL2, each magazine is realistically simulated. When magazine 1 is empty you can press any of the keyboard keys associated with the magazine slots (keys 1 to 5) to load a new one. Obviously in the heat of battle it might happen that you press the wrong button and load an empty magazine and look like a lama when you get bitchslapped to hell.
Skeptic player: Well this is all nice and hardcore, but other games, like Red Orchestra did this already. What is so hardcore about ZMBE 2?
ZMBE 2 is even more hardcore because it goes a bit further than that. I think a screenshot should help explaining it:
That's it. The first FPS game (that I know of) that lets forces you to reload the actual magazine. After merrily blasting away your 5 loaded magazines you need to find a quiet corner or barricaded room to reload them, bullet by bullet.
