Since the Squad update is out and you are now all teamed-up and fighting for victory together, we just wanted to remind you of your free 1 Day Veteran Membership!
The new update named ‘Devyatayev – Squad’ (named after the Soviet soldier Mikhael Petrovich Devyatayev ) is here! Here you can get a quick overview of all the new features we’ve added for you! The Videolog will start you off and we then continue with more details below!
In the upcoming Devyatayev update (named after the Soviet pilot Mikhael Petrovich Devyatayev) we went through and performance optimized the bullet impacts in the action game.
How does that EFFECT me?
Bullets hitting something is an event that happens a LOT in the game, and especially in areas where there is a lot of fighting, such as indoors when capturing a control point. You have probably experienced being in a firefight where there was bullets everywhere but you couldn’t really see what was going on with smoke and sparks flying everywhere. This optimization makes this look better, but also improves framerate!
UPDATE: Test done!
The test is now over! Thanks a lot for all your help. We found a handful of those issues that are almost impossible to find without having players from all over the world joining squads and queueing in the matchmaker etc. We’ve grabbed our bug-fighting gear and started hammering those bugs!
Again Thanks for all your help!
Tonight we will host a playsession of Squad 2.0 on our stable server. Help us test the new Squad system and log in here!
The test will start at 7PM CEST and will shut down at 9PM CEST.
Every player will get 20.000 Gold and is recommended to purchase an Academy trained soldier and some levels on the Squad Ribbons to fully enjoy the Squad experience.
You can also join the the Unified Allied Teamspeak on IP
188.8.131.52 in the Squad 2.0 – Playsession Channel during the test. You may forwards bugs directly to Reto via this channel.
You can also report bugs in this forum topic or in the Support channel on the Stable server.
As 2 hours is too short for you to form a good opinion about Squad 2.0, we ask you to only report bugs you encounter, any feedback you may have about Squad 2.0 may be provided after you have had a more time to play with it!
In the upcoming Devyatayev update (named after the Soviet pilot Mikhael Petrovich Devyatayev) we are adding a new thrown Anti-Tank Grenade for the German faction!
The Panzerwurfmine Lang (or PWM for short) is a handheld thrown anti-tank weapon with similar function to the Soviet RPG-43. It enables German infantry to take out enemy tanks without having to run all the way up to them to place a magnetic mine.
The Devyatayev update brings the long awaited new Squad Feature, which actively supports and improves tactical teamplay. No player will ever be alone on the battlefield anymore, no matter if you just started playing or are a die-hard Veteran!
In the upcoming Devyatayev update (named after the Soviet pilot Mikhael Petrovich Devyatayev) we are introducing new camouflage uniform options for the all factions. Here we’ll take a look at the new possibilities for the American soldiers! So when you need to set an ambush for that pesky T-20 komsomolets that has been harassing your advance? Grab a new uniform to blend in!
Just as the Hunter and Forest pattern introduced in the Churchill update and the Bauer update respectively, it will come in three colours and help Infantrymen, Paratroopers and Recons not to be seen. When playing together with friends grab identical uniforms so when you operate as a squad ingame you are also easy to identify as a group.
