On the heels of the Modern Combat multiplayer update, comes exclusive details and screenshots about Ngmoco's upcoming 1.1 update for Eliminate Pro.

The 1.1 update which has already been submitted to Apple will offer a number of armor updates, new skins, higher ranks and a new map for the popular first person shooter. One of the most anticipated addition comes with a new arctic map called "Knox" (pictured above).

Players will also be allowed to try limited use "prototype" armor sets that come already upgraded. This lets you test a set of armor complete with upgrades for a limited time without having to invest a ton of time and money by going down a path you aren't sure you'll like. Beyond this, Ngmoco is introducing new armor mods that allow you to further enhance armors beyond the stat limits of current sets.

Special themed skins will also be available as seen here. And Ngmoco is also upping the rank cap of 50 all the way up to 70, to provide maxed out players loftier goals to shoot for. Finally, the ability to invert controls will finally be available.

The 1.1 update should arrive any day now. Apple seems to be rapidly approving app submissions ahead of the holidays.

    How about an update to bring some balance to the game. Currently it's he who has the biggest gun wins. No strategy involved which is a shame because it used to be quite fun.

    Or maybe I just suck and the balance is fine.

    • FrozenPhoenix

      Yeah I use the auto-rifle and I own everyone so...yeah

    Okay.. Who's the wise-ass who put a .bmp as the second image? (The html geek in me shudders any time I see an image loading bottom to top in Firefox.) :)

    Sorry, this post may sound a little 'grammar nazi' in nature, but I'm just concerned for the experience of those on slow connections.

    • Rick

      Not sure you entirely understand what "grammar" means.

        Would you like me to draw you a picture to illustrate the similarity between the two? :p

      • Rick

        Yes, draw a picture. I still think you chose a poor point of correlation.

        Nothing to do with grammar, no matter how you spin it. I will agree you post added nothing useful, however. Nobody is here to contest that.

        Nice try, though!

    What about optimizing it for the iPhone 3G? It's barely playable.

    • FrozenPhoenix

      Not true. I can actually play it on my 1st Gen iPhone.

    where's the option to turn off sweaty hands?

    • Caiman

      Heh, yeah this game is pretty frustrating. I put about half an hour into it, got a few easy kills from players who clearly had no idea how to move around the closet-sized map, until someone joined who obviously knew what they were doing and proceeded to own everyone by several orders of magnitude. At this point I got bored and logged off. It's hardly Quake Live.

    I love this game, but if they don't fix the rocket launcher issues I'm done with this game. I'm tired of playing rounds where we all have like 2 kills and one guy blow himself up 30 times.

    They need to make the explosions hurt the shooter MUCH more than they do. That won't stop most of those idiots, though. That why we have all those low scoring games. It makes the game boring.

    I still love this game, they just need to fix that somehow or this game is ruined.

    This game is imbalanced as hell. There are way too many instances of somebody winning a match 10 kills to 2. Everytime I play Eliminate on my 3g iPod touch, with my wireless network at home, I basically obliterate the competition, despite the fact that I don't even play it that much. He who has the best upgrades/newest model of iPhone or Ipod/the most stable Internet connection wins.

    • baddog

      Aren't most internet games like that? I know if I played against something in Starcraft that was on a modem, they don't stand a chance. I don't really know what you are expecting different here. And yeah, if you play an MMO and you take your level 50 warlock and attack a level 40 warlock. You're gonna dominate.
      What's the difference?

    Let's face it. Eliminate is the bastard love child of Run'N Gun and Spray and pray. If the maps were bigger, if team play were allowed, maybe Eliminate would have been something more than everyone running around like chickens with their heads cut off, mindlessly spamming shot guns and rocket launchers.

    If it's technical shortcomings are fixed, MC:S has the potential to be everything in terms of a MP game that Eliminate is not.

    The game really is a mediocre FPS and I can't believe people are stupid enough to pay $30 for a recharge...I think people are making this game more than it really is because it's the only online FPS iPhone that is bearable.

    At least there's inverted controls this time around.

    • baddog

      The iPhone is NOT and Xbox360.
      But it still plays better than any mobile FPS.

    I just really hope that they don't keep the same skillpoint match up system.. i'm finally at level 42 and can stand somewhat of a chance against the level 50's, but for a long time there it was almost useless to play w/ being 1shotted across the map
