Hidden Source places the player into adrenaline fueled, tension filled scenarios from high tech labs through abandoned train depots to murky, cold sewer systems. Playing either as part of an eight man Infinitum Research Intercept Squad (I.R.I.S.) or as Subject 617 AKA "The Hidden". As a member of IRIS the player must locate and destroy the Hidden, as the Hidden the player must evade capture and use all abilities at his disposal to turn the tables on his aggressors.

Here is a rundown of what's changed from 4a to 4b, as provided by Hidden Source...
While it's not Beta 5, we felt that enough's enough and that we had to get something out the door. So while this update does nothing on the code side of things (we didn't want to go back and try and jury-rig the old code base into a releaseable state - the additional problems that would create would be endless!) it does update the mods steamappid to 215 (we appreciate that a number of players and servers have already done this, but with this update everyone should be on the same playing field and we should have no more problems with one group being unable to play on certain servers!)
We've scrapped manor (if you've been following the forum, you'll be aware of this) but rather than leave you with one less map, we've fixed up hdn_origin by removing the lag inducing shakes and replaced manor with the much more atmospheric and decidely sexy hdn_decay (see if you can guess the influences!)
Aside from those major changes, this update includes a number of alterations to materials and models and includes a whole new look and feel to the menus and front end! Though keep in mind, we have held back some art updates for beta 5, just so we've got some new shinies to go along with the new gameplay mode and feature set.
