In a recent unveiling of the Muerto Times roadmap for The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, the developers have declared that Leatherface, the iconic character from the franchise, is set to receive a game-changing buff in the forthcoming update. The Muerto Times roadmap not only sheds light on this significant alteration but also promises a slew of other enhancements and modifications aimed at refining the gaming experience.
The asymmetrical multiplayer game, released in August 2023 for PC and Xbox and Playstation consoles, has become a staple in the horror gaming genre. Sumo Nottingham and Gun Interactive have consistently kept players informed about the game’s future through their regular roadmap releases. These updates, aimed at fostering balance between the murderers and survivors, have also tackled bugs and other issues encountered since the game’s launch.
Leatherface, a character synonymous with The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, has been a constant presence in the game since its inception. Sumo Nottingham and Gun Interactive have now revealed plans for a slight buff to Leatherface in the upcoming update. This enhancement will empower Leatherface to navigate obstacles with increased efficiency and speed, introducing a dynamic element to his gameplay. While the exact release date for the update remains undisclosed, the developers have maintained a monthly release pattern for previous updates, indicating an imminent arrival.
The forthcoming changes extend beyond Leatherface’s buff, encompassing adjustments to grappling mechanics. Previously, grappling between family members resulted in instant kills, a tactic that will no longer be effective after the update. Furthermore, Danny’s Level 3 Instant Study perk is undergoing modifications, though specific details have not been disclosed. Danny, introduced in November’s update, will also witness the reinstatement of the slippery skill to his tree, accompanied by fixes for several exploits and balancing issues.
Leatherface’s status as an iconic figure in the franchise has undergone recent revisions, liberating the character from mandatory inclusion in every game. Alongside this change, Leatherface has received new costumes, paving the way for potential broader involvement in battles. The game’s unique 3 versus 4 format, diverging from the common 1 versus 4 model, has added complexity to the balancing act inherent in asymmetrical multiplayer titles.
