Post news Report RSS Update 4!

Hey all, after a successful alpha and beta, we are happy to present to you Update 4 in Full Release!

Posted by on

Lots of bug fixes, general user experience improvements, menu options, audio fixes and the first expansion to Free Roam. You will also notice when you start, you will launch into our new Main Menu.

As with every major release, if you ever find something strange happening in your game, we highly recommend Verifying File Integrity.

Please submit bug reports either on Steam or on our Discord (faster responses and can real-time chat with devs as well as the other 1600 members!): Discord.gg

Update 5 will have a revamp of firearm weapon interactions as well as a fleshed out experience in the "shooting range". We are also looking into Mission 2 finally gracing you all with its appearance.

Lastly, don't forget to update or leave reviews!
