Brisbane, Australia – May 1st, 2012 – Independent studio Hitbox Team is proud to announce an update for Dustforce via the platform Steam on PC (Windows) and now on Mac. The update includes an in-game level editor and online level sharing server, as well as new levels and a new key progression system.
The update will feature an easy-to-use in-game map editor that lets players design and build both single-player and multiplayer levels. Players can also share their creations with the community, who will be able to search, play and vote on maps at the level sharing website .
The updated game also includes a new overworld and key progression system, which allows players to unlock new doors at a more comfortable pace.
