With the goal of adding more content to the game and increasing its value and playing lifetime, additional levels for the arena mode were planed and are now being added to the game.
For this update, a new arena map named Military Base has been added in addition of the 2 arena maps already available in the game.
This new map is consisting of a military camp which you may have been familiar if you have already played the adventure map.
As the other arena maps, you will need to resist for as long as possible against waves of cyborgs using the boost bonus randomly spawning on the map and which will give you extra power and abilities.
The camp is surrounded by heavy fortifications made with large blocks of sandbags and barbed wires.
With destructible tents inside and by using grenades, most of the camp can be destroyed. This would become handy to easily find the spawning boost bonus and to create a clear view to spot incoming cyborgs.
Along this new map, some minor improvements were added such as the ability to crush cyborgs with the buggy, along a couple of bugs fixes.

Cyborg Arena has just been released this last week-end as an Early Access on Steam ! It is featuring the adventure map with 2 arena maps, and some additional arena maps are still in development and should come soon.
The adventure map is complete and features a story line where the player will discover the plot by listening to conversations between soldiers and commanders through the radios placed on the map. Voice acting has been done with subtitles to enhance the atmosphere.
The game has also already received many updates since its release to improve it and fix some issues which have been appearing lately. Here is a list of the small tweaks and fixes which were done :
- Fixed the cyborg boss sometimes not spawning in the small scrapyard of the adventure map
- Auto-shotgun is now more accurate
- Fixed lags in the arena mode
- Fixed the player collision mesh when crouching
- Fixed cyborgs who could not hit the player
- Added more cyborgs in the military base
- Fixed firing impacts effects of the cyborgs.
- Medkits will now extend boost time in arena mode
- Re-adjusted cyborgs accuracy for easy and medium difficulty
- Added a congratulation screen when completing the adventure map
Achievements were also added, with a total of 17 achievements to unlock. You can find the full list here : http://steamcommunity.com/stats/706440/achievements
More improvements and updates will of course come in the future. The next update should see the third arena map added to the game, which should be Scrapyard Night or Military Base.

I am very pleased to announce that Cyborg Arena is now available as an Early Access. The game will continue to be worked out and improved until the final release.
If you would be encountering any bugs or issues during playing, please let me know on the forum so that it can be addressed. The same also apply if you may have a suggestion or some feedback for the game.
After the game has left Greenlight to be announced as a Coming Soon, the development has been progressing well and with a lot of internal testing, Cyborg Arena will be available as an Early Access for this next week !
With a good news, it will come with more features than what was planned. To sum it up, the game will contains one large adventure map with 4 instant battle maps featuring the arena mode !
Here are some screenshots of the maps :
The adventure map will have large explorable areas, with many items and weapons to find, a driveable buggy and a story line backed with voice acting and scripted sequences.
It will be also a good way to familiarize with the game before jumping into the arena mode, where the gameplay will switch from a survival shooter to a fast paced action game !
With collectible boost bonus to gain extra powers such as high speed, high jumps, unlimited ammo, explosive ammo, etc... achieve the best score against the cyborgs !
More news to come soon next, with the launch of the game and adding of achievements, stay tuned.
