Release Notes


IMPORTANT: The following release notes are preliminary and in draft form. Some features/changes will change or be omitted before final release.


New Content.

■ 86K-c “Ranseur”

○ Class: Assault Tank

○ Faction: Colonial

○ This evolution of the “Bardiche” is fitted quad-mounted RPG launchers paired with a high-velocity 12.7mm cannon. The “Ranseur” indicates progress in Kraunian design as they continue to leverage outdated equipment to create deadly, modern armour. ■ Gallagher Highwayman Mk. III

○ Class: Cruiser Tank

○ Faction: Warden

○ Colm Gallagher’s engineers designed a variation of the Outlaw that features an independently rotating MG turret sitting atop the main armament of twin anti-tank cannons. What it lacks in raw firepower compared to its older sibling, the Highwayman more than makes up for it with versatility.


New Features.

■ Improved Vehicle Physics.

○ Rear wheel drive and tracked motorized vehicles will see more realistic behavior when traversing uneven terrain, trenches, and rubble. Charging a tank over several trenches can be performed in an accurate advance that conforms to the shape of the terrain under your treads.

○ Abrupt lag spikes at bridges should no longer throw your truck into the ocean.

■ Localisation has returned and remains a work in progress for the following languages. ○ Chinese.
