Fistful of Frags is a multiplayer modification built over Valve's Source Engine. Released today on December, 21. Our game is set in the Old West, but it doesn't matter if you are a die hard fan of western based games or not, we simply want to create an original gaming experience oriented to any gamer who enjoys competitive online first person shooters.
The main motivation behind this project is our desire to create unique gameplay. Two concepts in carrying out this aim include extensive player customisation and dynamic objective system. These are our two main gameplay proposals with a number of other features revolving around them.
Fistful of Dollars is the name of our main game mode, like the classic movie starring Clint Eastwood. It consists of an original and very effective game mechanic that will let new players get into the modification far more easily than most online modifications, but at the same time, will also make more experienced players want to keep coming back due to its inner complexity and addictive nature. This gameplay mode is coupled with an innovative weapon selection system that offers a vast degree of freedom. Everything is tied together with our Notoriety experience system that measures player progression along each round in a way never seen to date!
El Paso represents a classic western town with the habitual architecture you could find in those times: wood or brick buildings, and there is also a special apparition of a fortress like bank with Spanish influence. This town is based in movies like "For a few dollars more" and "Once upon a time in the West", has nothing to do with the real old El Paso.
Presidio is based on real edifications made by Spaniards in 18/19th centuries, the presidio. It*s some sort of fort, meant to protect missions over the southwest of the USA. This one was abandoned, its original inhabitants left many years ago.
This file is the full V1.2 of Fistful of Frags install, highly recommended to remove any previous version or get the V1.0 - 1.2 patch.
