Foxhole 0.6 Release Notes



We will be rolling out the update to servers in stages in the next 24 hours. Servers that have not been updated yet will appear greyed out in the server browser. During the rollout period, you can still access the 0.5 client by switching to the "Update-0.5" branch on Steam via the "Betas" properties tab.​

0.6.14.1 Hotfix Update was released on 11/3/2017 that fixes an issue that causes player characters to move erratically after being hit by vehicles under poor network conditions. Some minor UI changes were also made on the server browser and login screen.
