A New Dawn has arrived… Iron Fish is back with a new development team and improved gameplay patch

New patch brings significant improvements to underwater horror title

London - April 12 th  2017: The developers behind submergent horror title Iron Fish have announced the next evolution of the title with the release of the ‘New Dawn’ patch.

After first dipping their toes into the murky horrors of the abyss back in October, the driving force behind Iron Fish - creator Dean Edwards and game director Shaun Leach - have assembled a new VR-focused development team to bring the next wave of terror to the deep.

Drawing it’s inspiration from the likes of survival horror classics Alone in the Dark and Silent Hill, Iron Fish is a nautical nightmare that puts you in the diving boots of deep sea explorer Cerys whose mission is to find out exactly what lies beneath the surface…

The New Dawn patch corrects many of the game’s niggling bugs and in turn delivers huge improvements when it comes to playability and system optimization. The update, which is available now, brings new navigation controls well as making numerous bug fixes and general enchantments.

The New Dawn patch is a result of direct feedback from the gaming community, and promises to make the game more playable - and terrifying - than ever.

Features of the patch include:

- Story mode difficulty reduced to allow players to more easily progress through game.

- Added mouse functionality.

- Improved UI and UX.

- Revamped input for mouse and keyboard.

- More mission hints and tutorials.

- Fixed various bugs that prevented players from progressing through game.

- Fixed mission hints which pointed you in the wrong direction.

- Visual improvements of pick-up items.

- Improved overall performance of the game.

The New Dawn patch is the first in a series of updates that the new development team will be releasing. Along with the new patches, the much anticipated VR update is planned for release Q2.
