Developer Briefing #165 – Weekly Update, Smart Materials

Patch 17 Launch Soon To Be Announced

This week we are continuing to work away on Patch 17, unfortunately a few issues cropped up close to the sign-off period which we are now addressing. We’re expecting to wrap up these issues ASAP before continuing the sign-off period, after which we look forward to officially rolling Patch 17 out. We appreciate all your patience and help with the testing for the patch during the PTE sessions we held.

Sneak Peek Of The Week – Updated Smart Materials

The art team has been hard at work on multiple fronts for Hell Let Loose. Alongside the continuous content creation for updates moving forward they are constantly looking at ways to improve both the performance and looks of existing assets in Hell Let Loose. These assets make the backbone of what a player sees and interacts with in game and are a high priority for achieving the overall realistic feel of the WW2 theaters in Hell Let Loose.

As an example we can see below a work in progress for the German FG-42 weapon being updated with new smart materials, giving a more detailed look without the impact on performance. The method of applying smart materials to assets like below can be put across to various ingame assets such as vehicles, player uniforms as well as weapons. As time moves forward we plan to continuously replace older assets with these new smart materials, an example of this being the German Panther Tank which will be seeing it’s return in Update 12.
