Espire 1: VR Operative PSVR 1.3 Patch
This patch brings Espire 1 on PSVR in-line with the 1.3 version of the game on other platforms.
Below is a list of improvements and bug fixes that are included in the patch!

Feature Improvements
  • Implemented the Cheats menu. You can find the cheats menu in the Main Menu. If you’ve previously unlocked cheats in a previous version of the game, they’ll now be available in this update. If you play the game with cheats enabled, your mission progress and high-scores cannot be recorded.
  • Espire Vision feature is now enabled with a trigger-press, matching the behavior on other platforms.
  • Redesigned the Comfort Settings UI, such that it is clear how to disable our comfort mode (The Espire Control Theater).

What We Are Up To - A Piercing Freeze

  • 4,257
  • 18
Hello everyone,

Today we wanted to go over some upcoming Perk and weapon changes that we feel will improve gameplay and player choice, as always, please let us know if we are on the right track!

The design team has been looking at Perk skills that are fairly lopsided in terms of player choice and has worked on updating their counterparts to make them more viable. These are currently:
  • (Berserker) ZED TIME - Berserker Rage: The heal percentage, fear radius, and fear duration are increased.
  • (Survivalist) ZED TIME - Lockdown: Knockdown, stumble, and stun rates are maxed to better guarantee one will trigger on most Zeds.
  • (Gunslinger) Line em’ Up: Additional penetration will be added to all Gunslinger weapons. The bullets will be able to penetrate through Zeds when they previously could not, depending on the Zed shot.
  • (Firebug) Ground Fire: This now applies to the ground fires generated by the Dragonsbreath, Spitfires, and Molotovs.

And a weapon that is also...

Espire Version 1.5 Hotfix
Attention Espire Agents! We hope you’re enjoying our recently released version 1.5 content update. We’ve pushed a quick hotfix for the current v1.5 version of Espire that fixes some issues reported by users since release of the update:

  • Fixed an issue with Leaderboards where the “My Rank” button was not correctly showing the user’s rank in some circumstances.
  • Adjusted the PAR time, cost and expenditure targets for some virtual challenges based on user feedback. Some targets were too difficult or easy.

    They’ve now been adjusted as follows:
Hold-Up #2 Togah Expenditure PAR: Decreased from 10000 to 2745

What We Are Up To - Fire Downrange

  • 5,257

Firebugs, we here at Horzine have been informed about your burning need for more scintillating weaponry. Today we want to share two ways you’ll be burning up the competition for Zed kills in the near future.

Ever noticed when fighting a Zed horde that new ones tend to replace the ones you just killed, often in the same place? What if you left them a fiery present? The lab coats have been tooling around with the ammunition for the Dragonsbreath over the last few weeks, and they’ve come up with an upgrade.


Soon to be deployed for field testing, each fiery round is now guaranteed to leave ground fire at the site of impact (either directly, or where you hit a Zed). Helping the team lockdown that chokepoint? Switch weapons no more as you continue to blast away creating pools of fire to thin out the herd.

Another prototype from the HRG team is also on the way to help you reach out and burn some...

What We Are Up To - Lapsed Judgment

Perhaps we should not have come here”, was the thought on the top of the mercs minds as they entered deeper and deeper into the facility. New clues were the lure that brought them here, the supposed site of one of Dr. Clamely’s favorite offices to work out of when he was more... human-like. But perhaps that, like so many other leads, was just another trap.

Biolapse by Delta-Ranger, took First Place in the Non-Survival mapping contest and is the next community map joining the official rotation. Biolapse is a Holdout style map where players clear floor by floor before moving on to the next. Featuring a wide array of rooms, players will soon discover that the doors they locked behind them may soon be blocking their hasty “suddenly planned” retreat.

Based on user feedback we've tried to make the fact that there are non shirt products and other readability issues more clear by switching to a very basic theme and making the product tab on the upper left start unfolded.

We are now also looking to start adding some other new merch - Hats! We are looking to start with a smaller subset and I'm currently thinking perk logo hats. Name a more iconic duo than Medic and Zerker!

Vote for your top 2 favorite perk logo hats you would enjoy, or if you feel another design would work better let me know here in this thread!

STEAM VERSION: Version 1.4.15
RIFT VERSION: Version 1.4.14
QUEST VERSION: Version 1.4.13

Dear Espire Agents!
We are very proud to release our 1.4 update for Espire 1: VR Operative!

With this release, we’ve focused on improving 3 areas of the game: Enemy A.I, Gameplay/UX and, on Quest, Graphical Updates.These updates are live now on Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift and on Steam. They will be coming straight to PSVR asap after Christmas.

Here is a summary of the core improvements, with the full release notes below:

AI Improvements
This has been our core focus above all else in this release. The major improvement in this patch revolves around the enemy A.I’s perception of the player. Guards can now easily spot players if the player is standing, however, the player is far more hidden when crouched. Enemy guards also have a much harder time seeing the player when the player is high up in the rafters now. Their vertical line of sight will...

As Killing Floor 2, closes out the 2019 chapter of its lifecycle, it’s important to reflect on how the game has grown and changed over the past year and where it’s going for its continued future. On the outset of 2019, we had three overarching goals we wanted to target:

  1. Target top quality of life improvements and issues
  2. Add weapons to the arsenal that fulfilled unserved functions with a perk’s existing arsenal
  3. Deliver on long-in-development features and content that are hotly requested.

For the first point, we did a deep analysis of our end of year survey, forums, and community posts and compiled a list of things we wanted to target within each of our updates. These improvements came directly from the fan requests so please continue to be active on the forums, surveys, and social media.

At the end of 2018, we recognized we had a robust catalog of weapons so we wanted to make a concerted effort within the design to tailor each new weapon to serve some...
