Dear Operators,

Update 1.43 is now available online, bringing a multitude of content and improvements to enrich your gaming experience!

NEW MAP:

An exciting new map is now available for special operations, bringing the total number of maps to 20, with more to come this year! The "ARIAL Offshore Drilling" oil platform is located in the heart of the ocean and has recently been attacked by an enemy group.

This first vertical map of the game will require caution and strategy to gain the upper hand on your opponents. It consists of several levels, with numerous stairs and walkways providing access to objectives.





NEW TASK:

A new task, called "Encrypted Data", is now available in the mission menu. To succeed, you will need to recover an encryption key hidden on the map and then use this key to extract sensitive data. This two-step objective is perfect for discreet infiltration missions.



GAMEPLAY:

To optimize gameplay, several improvements have been made to make combat more dynamic. The revival and operator marking systems have been completely redesigned, becoming simpler and more efficient, allowing players to react quickly if they are attacked while rescuing a teammate.



As always, this update also includes numerous diverse improvements and fixes.

A big thank you to the entire community for your support and invaluable help in the ongoing improvement of the game.

Best regards,
Helios
