Multiplayer Update 2024 is Here!

Updated: Feb 10

Its may not be as large as previous updates, but it brings with it plenty to sink your little trotters into!

With the Hogs of War League marching into its 5th Season, it was time once again to cook up something special for the community. Since the dawn of time, hogs modding has been limited to just the available assets you find within any given map, as attempting to swap them around would simply crash the game. Until now. At the expense of pig voices and game music, 8 new maps for multiplayer bring with them an entirely new method of play to this game mode. New climbable structures (most being indestructible) vehicles and previously unused building types, particularly those of the medical variety, will now be available!

Because multiplayer is limited to 25 maps by default, over the years I've had to use entirely new ISO files to fit the new content in, and that's exactly what we find within this update. The third and newest ISO (previously) only housed one map, but that has now been modified to include the other 7 additions. Pdrag is now called 'Death Patch', along with the new entries of Grassy Outpost, Bomb Town, Porkchop Temple (its back!), Field Hospital, Nightwatch, Daybreak and Aqua-Base!

Five of these new maps are actually alternative versions of either their existing or unused counterparts, including Skulduggery, TDD, Canal, Pdrag and Bridge the Gap.

Having studied the strong points from the old Alpha version of Hogs, I wanted to apply that learning into this new update, specifically in the building design. The use of elevation and cover in combination with each other are deeply underused throughout hogs, but as we've discussed previously - this was primarily down to the limitations of the game's AI. For Human vs Human play however it should hopefully prove fun! Just watch your footing, its a long way down soldier!

[Ridge Back has received a big update in ISO 1!]

But of course the star attraction of this update comes in the form of a big 'n' shiny red Aquatank! Four of them to be exact! Aqua-Base sees additional buildings, shelters and a pillbox thrown into the mix, with plenty of space to take to the seas and do battle against your opponent in open waters!

The details don't stop there though! Along with the new maps in ISO 3, you'll also be finding several balance changes and new additions to ISO 1 and 2! As mentioned above, Ridge Back has been redesigned, Artilleries have been added to Over the Top and a whole lot more, check out the full patch notes below to see all changes!
