PTE December Update 0.3 Patch Notes

Recommended Posts

This update is for PTE only, once we add missing features and make sure it works well, we'll push it to live servers!

Hello there! Kept you waiting, huh? It's been a bit over two weeks since our last update and there's a good reason for it: we've been working hard on 0.3, which includes a lot of improvements, one of which is a big decrease in load times and RAM usage. During our testing we've seen RAM usage in the whereabouts of 3-6GB, which means the game should work fine on 6 and 8 GB systems now, and load a lot faster.

This improvement required us to change how we load assets in all of the engine and that meant a lot of new bugs and crashes. This is what consumed our time in the last few weeks - fixing the game so you can play it in its new, better form.

Of course, that's not the only thing that's changed. We've added new tank and a battle rifle, new uniform, a new map (which is in a prototype state, so we can all change how the gameplay flows on in!). Personally I think it's a lot of fun to play and I hope you'll like it too.

There's a few things that are missing here, we'll be adding them this week and at the beginning of next week as well.

There's also a lot of new features and improvements, so time to dig into those patch notes!
