The cheap and fun FPS Ballistic Overkill is set to get another update and it sounds like it could be quite a good one.

It was updated again recently, adding in more female skins for the different classes that are available and it appears support for the game is set to continue. Here's what the developer teased everyone with:

Hey soldiers!

It's time to muster the troops -  Ballistic Overkill is gearing up for a major new update. Are you ready for an all new game mode? That's right soldiers, a totally new gameplay mode. Add in more new skins and a slew of gameplay enhancements and this will become our biggest and most exciting update yet.

Stay tuned for further announcements!

I'm very curious to know what they will add in. It already has deathmatch, team deathmatch, king of the hill and capture points. It could be capture the flag, last man standing or perhaps they're going even further with a Battle Royale mode. Who knows, but I will be keeping watch!

We've enjoyed a great many hours in this one and our weekly games are starting up again! Be sure to follow us on Twitch to know when to join in! You can find it on Humble Store and Steam

They pledged to remove it , once they do i may re-install it.

I get where you are coming form personally could not give a rats fuck if some game studio wants to know what game i played after i played there game hell pay me what they paid red shell and i would happily tell them.

It gathers a LOT more.

All in the name of "marketing".

I didn't know what this "red shell" is so I checked the mighty internet.
It seems that the devs aren't using it and they are going to remove it in the next update.

It's also reaching that stage of game too where a few superb players are just owning each round. Of the, say, 12 people on a server in a round, 3 have 25-30+ kills, about 5 have 5-10 kills, and 4 have 0-5 kills.

i agree I do wish it was more popular when you consider it has cross platform mp between linux and windows the numbers are low and really there are not that many offerings that are as good for me csgo and tf2 are the big hitters but bo is more fun to me. I used to love xenontic but apart from bots that game is pretty much dead now same as open arena and wolf enemy terrority. Day of infanmy never really took off on linux and thats kind of it for competetive fps on linux. We have a massive shortage of story driven fps as well Bioshock infinite/Metro/deux ex and maybe if feeling generous shadow warrior (though the story is pretty bare bones)Hell i am actually excited about fucking turok a 22 year old game coming out on linux to have something "new" to play.

I played BO tonight and for a while everyone on the server was mortal, with no super-players, and it was really fun, everyone had a shot, then 2-3 demi-gods arrived and are killing you within seconds of spawning, and then it wasn't so fun. This game is also terrible at distributing players between teams by skill in the last match, and will frequently stack a team with the best players and it's a slaughter. I wished the BO people cared more...

As for story based offerings, I'm really enjoying Aragami right now. It's a stealth FPS/ninja game rather than competitive, but it's a lot of fun so far.
