We have just included a new feature. Feature - Added the Player Level functionality. This is an account based progression that rewards the player with Iridescent Shards upon leveling up. Prior to this change, hook auras would only be displayed if the hook was hidden behind another object.
Decreased the range of activation for the Killer pick up interaction Decreased the Wraith flashlight uncloak stun time from 4 seconds to 3 seconds Removed the possibility of spawning the Doctor or the Hag splinters in the Bloodweb because these characters can now be purchased for Iridescent Shards.

Updated pallets within Badham, Hospital and "map" The Game to use procedural distribution system. This should result in a more fair pallet generation. This will increase Bloodpoints gain in general, particularly for those who were consistently receiving a low amount of Bloodpoints at the end of a trial. If you want to drop a pallet from a standstill, you simply need to be on the side of the pallet that you would like to stay after dropping the pallet, and press the drop pallet interaction key.
