Alpha 12 Release and Free Weekend

Recommended Posts

 

Hi Squaddies!
 
The shelling hasn't stopped since we opened the Squad - Public Testing app, but thanks to you fine folks, we're going live! It's been a long road getting here (paved with new physmats, at least!) to get here and we can't thank you enough for all the support, time spent in the queue, and your dedicated feedback! With our esteemed thanks, we're proud to announce that Squad Alpha 12 is now available on Steam!
 
With Alpha 12 being a large patch, we wanted to remind you about the full changelog from the latest Recap. Here are a few of the highlights to whet your appetite:
 
  • TANKS! The Abrams and the T-72, armored beasts both, have taken the field!
  • New map: Tallil Outskirts: A war-torn desert map featuring brutal tank combat.
  • New weapons! Ranging from the fan-favorite FAL to the RPG-29, Alpha 12 packs some big punches!
  • New mode: Randomized AAS! An upgrade to AAS gameplay now features randomized points to keep things fresh.
  • New assets! We've updated many maps, overhauled the shooting range, added new Crewman characters, and more!

Free Weekend

Squad Leaders? We're counting on you -- form up your fireteams, double check your magazines, and strap on that brand new Crewman helmet: we're going to have some new recruits inbound. There will be a free weekend beginning on Friday, November 9th, at 10 AM PDT to celebrate the launch of Alpha 12 and Veterans Day!
 
Let's show these recruits, new and old alike, what Squad is all about!
 
Be sure to join us in the Squad Community Discord to stay up to date on the latest releases, chat with developers, and get to know your fellow squaddies! You can also find technical support, just in case the common resolutions didn't fix any hiccups.

this might be a dumb question, but do we delete the public test now?

Play testing was fun, and now thanks too the amazing developers I can finally play V12 in it's entirety!   

 

-One other question, I saw a "Aircraft" In the controls, is there going to be possible aircraft next maybe far-Updates.

You can uninstall it... until we start testing the next batch of things. =) Alpha 12 is officially live and on your normal Squad installation.

Any word on fixing the bipods, which don’t deploy on windowsills and sometimes not even on flat ground, and the washed-out textures that don’t reflex the geometry of the terrain? These issues are game-breaking and I’m surprised v12 got released with them right before the free weekend. It's going to turn potential players off.

Still no air vehicles? Been waiting over four years. Getting a little ridiculous now. Thanks for the update anyway I guess.

Devs have been pretty clear about what order they will do things in. The choppers will come after the tanks.

Oh yeah can't wait to get into the field and drive a tank. This has changed the way battles will operate with having a tank in the field time to brush up on the AT launcher more.

The bipod and texture bug aside, I love the new rally, overrun, ammo, and revive mechanics, and how vehicles are quite scary now. Looking forward to enjoying all these changes more once the remaining bugs get squashed.

Long range engagement + suppression are really good but persistent ammo make it worse. Also in map you can not see name when hover your mouse over players, you need to open deploy menu. Also deploy map have some issues, for example, if you select a spawn point and decide to chose another one sometimes second one will be highlighted but you spawn at first one because its actually highligts something else. Also sometimes deploy map stuck on click and keep dragging itself.

 

Edit:

Also when FOB overrun spawn dialog only shows cancel but when you click it nothing happen you need to select another spawn point to get rid of it.

+1 for bipods, in Jensen I just can't deploy it for ex.

Just wanna say excellent work and congrats on the big release! I wish more 'early access' games had such large impressive updates.

 

Keep up the good work.
