Steampunk PC shooter Hard Reset has gained a new survival mode and Nvidia 3DVision support in a fresh Steam patch.

Survival mode sees players face waves of enemies armed only with basic weapons. The action re-visits locations from the game's main campaign.

The update also adds the ability to play wearing snazzy 3D glasses, with Nvidia 3DVision and Nvidia Surround support patched in.

Hard Reset is the first game from Flying Wild Hog, a Polish developer with members of People Can Fly (Bulletstorm), CD Projekt Red (The Witcher) and City Interactive (Sniper: Ghost Warrior).

The full patch notes lie below.
