The update contains much more than the many new missions in Transylvania. You can acquire the brand new Flamethrower Auxiliary weapon, which is great for doing damage over time to groups of enemies. The Flamethrower can also slow opponents down, cover them in oil or lay down a wall of fire!

Issue #7 lets everyone hear the winners of our  Get your Music in the Game competition in the in-game record shop in London, and a great banner is put up in the shop to honor the winners.

This update also sets the stage for the continuation of the storyline in the upcoming Tokyo playfield. Filth is leaking from the Agartha portal to Tokyo and in the coming weeks and months the players will have to fight against the foul creatures of the Filth in several events before they can gain access to Tokyo itself.
