Following three years in development, we were thrilled with the popularity of American Fugitive at launch, and that so many gamers were enjoying tearing up the world we created! After a post-release phase of bug-fixing and performance improvements, we added some Quality of Life features, including a much requested mini-map. Once things settled down a little, we had some time to consider a variety of ideas for DLC content. However, it was apparent that one addition was being requested more than any other: tanks!
What could be more fun than crashing through the streets of Redrock in an oversize military behemoth, crushing all who try to stop you? Well, you asked and we listened, and we’re delighted to confirm that it’s just as fun and crazy as you thought! Of course, with such a high-powered vehicle, there needs to be an appropriate enemy response, so we’ve added soldiers armed with bazookas, 4×4 trucks (a.k.a. jeeps), and miniguns!
In the game lore, an army garrison has commandeered the old factory in Twin Lakes, in response to the spiraling crime wave the cops are struggling to contain (a crime wave which seems to have a certain lead character Will Riley at the epicenter). The military won’t be called into action until you trigger the all-new six-star Wanted Level (take that, GTA!). At that point, all bets are off.
We’ve also added a new supporting character, Sarge, who will entice you into his conspiracy-fueled paranoia with 10 military-themed challenges. These missions don’t have any bearing on the main plot, so can be played at any stage of the game (just like the existing Time Trials), and you’ll be rewarded with cold hard cash (which is just as well, as ammo for your new arsenal doesn’t come cheap).
So, batten down the hatches, and lock and load! It’s a State of Emergency, and the army shall, indeed, fire at will!
