Early Access Patch notes - 1.3


#1

Hey everyone!

We’ve rolled out another batch of fixes that should address some of those fun edge-case bugs such as your character getting stuck or involuntarily turning into a suicide bomber when swapping from a primed nade. We’ve also added in some QOL improvements such as making the console key (~) toggleable and keeping your mouse locked to the game window when in window or borderless mode (this one was annoying, we know). Voip is back :muscle: and I should also mention that we’ll be rolling out another small patch sometime soon which fixes the p90 reload ammo bug and disables kill trading.

Having said that, after the incredible amount of pressure and time constraints this team has been under for the last few months prepping for EA (welcome to game development!) we are finally able to take a step back, re-assess how we can improve studio operations from a macro-level, and most importantly, address some of the core gameplay issues we’ve been tracking based on your feedback and our own experiences. We have a direction, we have tangible goals, and we will be working hard on reaching them. Please know that these things don’t just take a couple of weeks to fix and your patience will be required here. I’ll be posting more about these issues in addition to a roadmap of sorts in the coming days. Just know that we’re incredibly excited about what’s to come!

Sweet! So far so good.

I have a question about skins: Are they actually limited time? Like will these carry over into the full release and not be purchasable again?

Nice! I was floating over to COD BO4 and other FPS’ers but I think I’ll jump back into ION. Players have been a little low lately however. Still a game I would love to see evolve. Thanks for all the hard work Devs.
