Intelligence Bulletin Vol 1 * No 5

intelligencebulletingvol01no05

Today we’ve launched our Debut Teaser as an exclusive video on Gametrailers.com. We’re quite proud of the video and hope that it will be well received!

A new stable release is up with a lot of bugfixes, a new light-setting and more… Oh, almost forgot – bombs and mines! :-D

As a small test, your get a couple of “free” anti-personel/anti-vehicle mines and sticky/magnet bombs each time you spawn. We will continue to give you a few new “free” weapons to test from time to time.

This week’s test-focus is the spawn, capture and map elements of the game. Is the spawn mechanic logical, can you find the capture points and does the in-game map and icons make sense to you? Remember to give us feedback in the forum, and feel free to also comment on the new weapons.

Now let’s proceed to the Team Debriefing…
