Developer Briefing #157 – Outflank Update is LIVE!!!
At last Update 11 ‘Outflank’ is upon us. Over the past few days we have enjoyed seeing many players jumping in and experiencing new assets such as the Panzer IV, Half Tracks, Trench Gun and FG-42.
You can check out the full changelog with all the information here: https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/686810/view/3139568705206001184
Overall we are happy with the release of the update and are excited to continue development as we look towards what future updates have in store.
Though before we are able to fully begin work on U12, a number of issues have arisen that we would like to investigate and look to address. The following issues may be present to some players in Update 11, we will be tackling these as quickly as possible as well as anything else we find.
FG42 and FG42 Scoped sights are zeroed incorrectly
AT-Guns are able to destroy Heavy tanks with 2 shots to the hull
Satchels placed on vehicle tracks or barrels may deal less than the required damage to destroy the vehicle
Revive stats for not being recorded by steam for achievements or Personal Stats
Some players are experiencing an increase in Client crashes
Textures on the German Halftrack viewport appear distorted
The Panzer IV can struggle to traverse uneven terrain due to it’s hull collision
Players are occasionally spawned in with the incorrect Loadout
For those who may not have seen, alongside the Update 11 release we have also implemented some new DLC uniforms for all factions:
False Front – German Zeltbahn Uniform
Red Steel – Soviet RA SN-42 Steel Bib over Ameba Summer Uniform
