In the upcoming Churchill update (after the British soldier Jack Churchill) we are introducing new camouflage options for the American faction. We have chosen to add another experimental camo pattern Hunter. Just as the Forest pattern introduced in the Bauer update, it will come in three colours and help Infantrymen, Paratroopers and Recons not to be seen.
The next major update will have a new faction, which is one of the smaller, but not unimportant nations of WWII: the Swiss faction. It is a neutral faction that cannot initiate the first attack towards any of the other factions, but if attacked by a faction it will then be able to perform attacks towards that faction for the remainder of the War, but only within the region of Switzerland.
The first and only Assault Team and soldier type available for the Swiss faction is Recon, but in coming updates we will add further Assault Teams and soldier types. The Swiss Recon soldiers will be armed with K31/43 rifles with 2.8x Scopes and a Swiss Army Knife as default weapon. The Swiss Faction will be the only Faction in which Soldiers will earn Gold instead of Credits.
In the upcoming weeks we will reveal more information about the Swiss faction…
Tune in on today’s devstream#68 at 15:00 UTC +1 for more details about the next update…
In the coming update named Bauer (after the German soldier Ludwig Bauer) we will also be adding new camouflage options for the American faction. This time we have chosen a camo pattern (“Forest“) which was developed by the US Army as an experiment around 1942. Available in three different color schemes, it will undoubtedly help Infantrymen, Recons and Paratroopers to blend into dense, wooded surroundings.
In the coming update named Adams (after the American hero Lucian Adams) we have improved the terrain graphics and added a handful of tweaks to the town map.
We have updated and improved the way terrain is generated and drawn on screen, and the Town map is the first to receive the update. You can see that grass and bushes now look a lot better and the terrain has a more fluid and less jagged feel. In addition the grass-land and fields are a bit more hilly, which helps infantry move by providing a bit more cover.
Here you can see how nice these improvements look, and how nice the uniforms now blend in to the terrain better. This is the capture point E2 –

THE CHRISTMAS CRATES ARE NOW LIVE!
Weapon of the Weekend? Christmas Crates? What are those things?
HOW IT WORKS: Depending on the map size, every time a mission starts, a random number of Christmas Crates will spawn on different locations. Painted in red and green, these easily recognizable crates will contain one Weapon of the Weekend special high-tier weapon. The Christmas Crate is single-use only, so once the crate has been used, the player will receive the given weapon, and the crate will disappear from the battlefield. You will get to try the weapon until you die, then you have to go find another crate if there are any crates left on the map.
