2011-11-03 01:00:00·  2 minute read   ·  Jordan Devore@DtoidJordan

Flying Wild Hog isn't done expanding first-person shooter Hard Reset just yet. Patch 1.2, which is now live, adds Survival Mode -- complete with two new maps -- support for NVIDIA 3D Vision and Surround, in addition to bringing performance enhancements and changes to gameplay.

If you're lucky enough to have a fabled three-monitor system, now might be a good time to try Hard Reset if you have not done so already. Check the gallery for screenshots of the new Survival content.
