We are releasing a patch to address some issues and perform some final polish to the game before release tomorrow.

New Content

  • Added a new “Ready Up” system for competitive matchmaking. 
  • Added new player level icon for when surpassing level 999. 
  • Added a new advanced video option “Keep Loaded Textures” which will prevent textures from de-loading. This option requires a lot of VRAM so should be used with caution and only on high tier machines. 
  • Added new third person jump animations. 
  • Added remaining Lesson video tutorials. 
  • Added “Paper Plane” Tattoo for Security, and “Geometric A”, “Geometric B”, “Sword and Flowers” Tattoos for Insurgents.

Optimization

  • Improved hitching related to air support vehicles first spawning in. 
  • Optimized eyebrow textures.
  • Optimized Insurgent pattern textures. 
  • Optimized Security camo textures. 
  • Optimized cosmetic ID textures. 
  • Optimized Support Helicopter textures.
  • Optimized weapon LOD profiles with bone reductions. 
  • Rebuilt all LODs for characters with proper bone LOD settings. 
  • Rebuilt all LODs for all 3P weapons and weapon upgrades with proper bone LOD settings. 
  • Optimized master materials and material instances. 
  • Optimized vehicle textures and destroyed vehicle textures.

Visual Improvements

  • Player cosmetic loading will now begin in the Loadout menu and not at spawn. This should reduce cases of players initially spawning with missing cosmetics on slower HDDs.

  • Updated soft padding glove cosmetic textures.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where third person world models would not always show the correct attachments. 
  • Fixed and issue where weapon attachments would not always show reliably in the Loadout menu. 
  • Fixed an issue where the weapon model would occasionally disappear from the soldiers hands in the Class select menu.

  • Fixed a localization overflow on the post match cosmetic badge UI element.

  • Fixed an issue where fire support reminder and available lines would play during the Tutorial Level. 
  • Fixed an issue where the Nvidia Highlights button would not be hidden in the game menu when set to to not activated. 
  • Fixed a startup process for Nvidia Highlights which would prompt some users to give permission to Nvidia to record highlights. 
  • Fixed an issue with the fire support indicator which would prevent it from showing under certain circumstances. 
  • Fixed an issue where key action hints and Lesson hints would not show the correctly bound key if the user selected the alternative toggle or hold version of the default action. 
  • Fixed a typo in the advanced video settings. 
  • Fixed an issue causing foliage in certain maps to be overbright.

Gameplay Improvements

  • Versus Firefight match length adjustments:
    • 4 rounds total. 
    • Team swap every 2 rounds. 
    • Win limit 3 rounds.
  • Reduced the number of fire support rounds fired for:
    • Explosive Artillery
    • Smoke Artillery
    • Chemical Mortars
    • Explosive Mortars
    • Smoke Mortars
    • Rocket Barrage

  • Disallowed players to jump while priming and throwing grenades. 
  • Smoothed out transitions for third person strafe animations.

AI Improvements

  • Bot “zeroing in” now begins when they start firing at their enemy, instead of when they first see an enemy. This fixes bots becoming too accurate too quickly, resulting in unfair and unpredictable deaths.
  • Increase accuracy of bots when they are “zeroed in”, ensuring they always kill a player they have been aiming at for long enough.

User Experience Improvements

  • Auto profile in the video setting menu should now be more accurate when suggesting video settings for the player. 
  • Automatic benchmark should now run propery the first time the game is run.
