Hey squaddies!



We’re tracking an issue that’s preventing players from accessing servers.



Early reports from the team are pointing to an issue with Steam-Unreal functionality related to the FOnlineAsyncTaskSteamFindServers queue. It appears to be an issue that will impact other games (e.g., Mordhau) using the Epic Steam OSS will be unable to display servers.



We’ll keep an eye on the situation and let you know more once we do.



Hang in there, squaddies.

Hey squaddies!



We’ve got some slightly-unsual patch notes for you today.



But first, you can say goodbye to that annoying server filter bug! (The “show full servers” checkbox functionality was inverted. Whoops!)



Additionally, we’re introducing some experimental changes to the “dead dead” mechanic, as well as the way “instadeath” works. Let’s dig in a little.

PRE-ALPHA 13​


Prior to Alpha 13, the mechanics worked like this:



After dying and being revived, there was a 60-second time frame during which you were extra vulnerable. This meant that if you died again during these 60 seconds, you would become unrevivable (“dead dead”) and be instantly sent to the spawn screen. There was no UI indication of this vulnerability.



Taking a large caliber headshot (such as 50cal) would instantly make you unrevivable (instadeath).



This was a mechanic was originally added to convey some...

Hey squaddies!



We’ve got some fresh reinforcements incoming: The Canadian Armed Forces are now fully deployed! That’s right, there’s a brand new faction in Squad and it’s already yours, completely free.




Originally known as CAFMOD, the team behind the new faction is straight from our modding community. We’re honored to be able to include them as official content for all players. What content is that, you ask?

So, what are you waiting for, soldier? Do it for The Great White North!

Hey squaddies!



You’ve been asking for it for some time and we’re happy to oblige: the OWI Merch Store is back and better than ever!




[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]




After a long and harrowing search, we narrowed the choice down to one amazing vendor that can handle all your merch needs. Shirts? You bet. Posters? Absolutely. Stylish black mug to pledge your undying loyalty to the Sphere? You better believe it. There’s plenty more, including some bags to haul all your swag, so have at it!

Hey squaddies!



We’re pretty excited by the release of Modding 2.0 and we wanted to share a little more about what that means.



First and foremost, it means that the Canadian Armed Forces mod is going to be released in the near future as free, official Squad DLC. That’s right: you will be getting a new faction soon, completely free of charge, no action required. O, Canada!

CANADIAN ARMED FORCES​




The arrival of CAF marks our first step towards including community-created content into Squad. This free expansion adds additional weapons, vehicles, and more, giving one of the world’s most well-known armies some well-deserved spotlight. Additionally, the update includes two Canadian maps, Quebec and Nanisivik, featuring snowy environments built for intense combined-arms combat.
