An update for Creed Arena has been released recently which allows you to play solo/co-op campaign while you’re waiting for a multiplayer match. This means instead of waiting to play, you can play while you wait!

Here is a list of the biggest things in the update:

  • Wider spread / range on shotgun
  • Plasma cannon ray blast takes 3 hits to kill an enemy with full health
  • Improved muzzle flash
  • Weapon recoil
  • Bullet-hit effects for hard surfaces
  • Play solo/co-op campaign while waiting for online match
  • Faster online challenges
  • Improved lag compensation in online games
  • Improved graphics and lighting
  • A few other minor things
  • To access the update, simply start Creed Arena on your XBOX, and a message will pop up prompting you to download the update. Already the number of players online has started to increase, so now’s a great time to hop online!

    We hope you enjoy the update!

    Creed Arena Entered in Dream Build Play 2010

    March 4th, 2010

    Creed Arena has been entered into Microsoft’s Dream Build Play 2010 competition where it will be judged against hundreds of other XBOX indie games. In last year’s Dream Build Play competition, Creed Arena was selected as one of the 20 finalists, and all these months down the track with so many fixes, additions and tweaks (partially due to all of your great feedback), we’re hoping that it will do well again!

    Coordinated online matches coming soon!

    January 23rd, 2010

    Next week we will begin coordinating LIVE sessions for everyone to get online and have a blast! Join us on twitter or facebook to stay informed. The Creed Arena online community is growing, and our goal is to have LIVE matches running 24/7 every day of the year!

    Gladiators, it’s time to die in front of thousands of spectators

    Update Coming Soon

    January 3rd, 2010

    There will be an update coming soon that will fix a stability bug found in the multiplayer, as well as to tweak the difficulty in the solo campaign. This update will occur automatically when you start the game.

    We will post here when the update is released, as well as tweet and post on facebook, so if you haven’t already, join our twitter or facebook page!
