Patch 0.1.1. is LIVE!

14/11/2018

Good news Soldiers!
The awaited Patch 0.1.1. is LIVE!
After a week of testing on the PTE, we’ve polished up and fixed most problems we had with the 0.1.1 patch.
We’ve isolated problems with connecting to the game (both menu and matches) and it should be much better. If you are still experiencing problems with connecting, we’ll have additional topics on our forum with resolutions to them as we find them.

The patch is live on Steam. See you on the battlefield!
