Person Of Interest Biography


Name: Rachel Clamely
Previous Last Sighting: (Believed deceased) The London Underground
(Former) Occupation: Horzine Science Division
Current Mental Status: Insane
Known Relatives: Kevin Clamely (AKA: The Patriarch)

Mercs,

We have some good news! We are not sure how, but the “good” Dr. survived the incident in the London Underground, however that is about the end of the jovial news here. Much as the literary case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the doctor we once knew has changed, and not for the better!

What little intel we have managed to gather so far suggests that, much like her father, she began to dabble in human modification to better battle the threat of the Patriarch and his clone army. Her results seemed to have fared about as well in the mental stability department, so good luck trying to reason with her.

It appears our...

Hello Mercs,

Last week we mentioned you would be heading back into the Biotics Lab to shut it down for good, and today we want to go over the new resources you’ll have available to get that job done. The Horzine Research Group has come up with some new concepts we think you are going to love.



First up, the HRG Winterbite for those Gunslingers out there. We get it, sometimes you just want to feel loved by the Sharpshooters, or well anybody running away from a ZED. Don’t you worry, with the Winterbite there is no way for you to fail! Equipped to fire cartridges to put some nitrogen ice shards downrange, these babies will help you bring your foes to a standstill, setting up some great combos with your team. Or team up with a Firebug for a Siren’s song of Fire and Ice!



And Medics, for you the HRG Incision may be your new best friend. The...

What We Are Up To - Back To The Lab

Hello Mercs,

We’ve received word from the top on your next Objective. It looks like you’ll be revisiting some old ground in the Biotics Lab, and with good reason. Since you’ve last been there it looks like someone has brought it back into full operation and has resumed clone production.



Dr. Buyu has called for help and this time, we need to make sure when you leave, nothing will bring this facility back online. That means shutting down the production lines and playing havoc with the raw material being used so nothing can be salvaged.



On the way out, do make sure to leave a present for the clot birthing “creature” in the tank will you?

Don’t worry, we won’t be sending you in without some new tools of the trade, and trust us, you'll need them if what we are hearing is correct. We have reports that some of the mercs in the field we had tracking down those...

Grim Treatments Hotfix 1087 is live.

  • 4
Hello Mercs,
We have just pushed a Hotfix across all platforms.

Steam PC - 1087 : PS4 - 1.36 : XB1 - 1.0.2.3

Bug Fixes:
  • [PS4 & XB1] Addressed crashes caused by specific character and accessory combinations centered around DJ Scully and Oisten Jagerhorn that also affected other players on a server when those combinations were present.
  • [Steam PC] Addressed the issue in which the client and server were not properly downloading mutator workshop content.
  • [All Platforms] Corrected Rhino Revolver Bundle to only include Gunslinger perk within the store description
  • [XB1] Addressed issues in which the store did not fully populate with all available items.
  • [XB1] Addressed party group invite reliability within the Main Menu.

As always, thank you for your continued support!

PSA: Known Console Crash and matchmaking issue (with workarounds)

  • 1,950
  • 13
Mercs,

We are tracking two crashes related to the Xbox and PS4. These are likely related to cosmetics equiped. Below is a list we have gathered so far.:

  1. Wearing the Scullyphones on DJ Scully
  2. Equiping Steampunk and Dragon and Koi gear
  3. Wearing Horzine Elite Gold Suit
  4. Beyond Horizon weapon skins
For now please avoid these things as we work to get these addressed. If experiencing similar with other cosmetics please list your platform and the combinations of cosmetics equipped. From what we are seeing these are the primary cause of almost all crashes players are currently experiencing (which includes a crash when joining a match) if these are set on your default character.

On matchmaking, we believe we have identified what is happening there as well. While we work on a fix for the root cause we've got a workaround in play that should make it much more likely that players will find a match.

We are working towards a hotfix to fully address these issues...

Espire 1 VR Launch Delay - More News Coming Soon

  • 885
  • 2

Hello everyone,

We here at Digital Lode and Tripwire Interactive have been excited to see the anticipation for Espire 1: VR Operative growing over the last few months. With that said, we have some important news to share about the release date. While originally planned for tomorrow, September 24th, we unfortunately need to push the launch day back a bit further. We know this is not ideal and apologize for any plans we may have interrupted.

So what has happened to cause this change?

A few things:

Throughout the year, we’ve been taking Espire 1 out to shows and meeting excited fans at events such as E3, Gamescom, PAX and others. During that time we’ve gotten invaluable feedback from those players and realized we would not be able to incorporate as much of it as we would like into the launch build.

And, while working with our partners doing Quality Assurance checks around the release candidate builds, it became clear...

Rising Storm 2: State Of The Game September 2019

  • 12,359

As you are most likely aware, Antimatter Games, who did the majority of development work on Rising Storm 2: Vietnam have been acquired by Toadman and announced they are working exclusively on a new title of their own. As such, they are no longer actively developing RS 2. While we work on the longer-term implications of that, there are a number of issues we are aware of and are actively working to fix for you in the coming weeks, including but not limited to:
  • Whitelist updates for new mods/mutators
  • Servers intermittently going deranked
  • “Black screen” during Campaign Mode under certain circumstances
More on this over the next few weeks. And as always, thank you for being fans of the Red Orchestra and Rising Storm franchise.

What We Are Up To - Investigating the Paranormal

  • 1,318

Hello Everyone!

Today we wanted to cover some Quality of Life improvements coming towards Killing Floor 2 that we are sure many of you will enjoy.

Starting with weaponry, the team is taking another pass at the Vlad-1000 Nailgun and the Hemogoblin, tuning these weapons in to make them feel more useful in the hands of players. Both of these weapons received a lot of quality feedback in the recent community survey and we want to make sure they get dialed into something more valuable to the players.

Another change we are making is removing the recoil buff from the Commando Hollow Point Rounds skill and making it into a passive for all Commando's. A lot of community feedback pointed towards the recoil feeling like a necessity for the Commando Perk, so we want to give recoil reduction as a passive a try instead of giving Eat Lead recoil reduction similar to Hollow Point Rounds. We are looking forward to seeing how Eat Lead and Hollow Point Rounds feel in the upcoming update.
