What’s New?
  • Down players have a limited time to be revived (very little time if they were taken down with a headshot)
  • If you miss an enemy spot you can't try again for 6 seconds
  • All new enemy weapons
  • New US weapon models
  • New US Pistol M1911
  • New Optics! (4x, 8x and shotgun holo)
  • New HUD
  • New in game UI replacing launcher functionality (still in-progress, so some options will be "coming soon" and the server browser will not have all functionality yet)
  • New gear sets on US Soldiers
  • New US Soldier camouflage patterns and colors
  • DEMOREC
  • New audio engine (wwise) and weapon sounds updated
  • New Map from Steam Workshop (Drecks' OVERLOAD)
  • New gametypes on existing maps (c4 / extract / flo )
  • Only one type of smoke grenade now and much more!

What's the focus for this test?

We need feedback from this test on a few specific things.
  1. Scoring - is the new scoring system easier to understand where your points are coming from?
  2. Audio - do any adjustments need to be made to volume or distance sounds are heard?
  3. Settings - test all of the settings and let us know if there are any problems or too many/missing options in the settings menu
  4. HUD - let us know what you think of the new look of the HUD

We are also stress testing the database and evaluating scoring/progression, so keep the few servers we have running full!

  • New slo-mo explosion effects on all c4 maps (still wip)
  • Three Kings is now Flo_Watchdog

expanded warning, if you are on a download quota, every time you change version, you will eat away on that quota.
(just elaborating on Phoenix warning as its possible to go back and forth several times a day)

That is the C4 plant site on Siege, there is an interesting effect when you plant the C4 in this training environment...
