Foxhole 0.5 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 0.4 client by switching to the "Update-0.4" branch on Steam via the "Betas" properties tab.​

Update: A small client fix (0.5.5.1) has been released that disables seat switching (which was causing a rare server crash) and adds in the updated version of the Farranac Coast map
