Beta 20 Released
Posted on June 29th, 2020 04:32 PM EST
B-20 is rolling out with optimizations and fixes for servers, audio, game crashes, and more. Not only that but joining Beta 20 will be a new map, Lashkar Valley.
Some of you may be familiar with this map from PR days, now with some added love and a few tweaks. This version of Lashkar Valley was developed with Midnight Interactive, the makers of the Aussie mod and while the Aussie faction isn’t joining Squad in this release, there is still room for them yet ;)
Based in Afghanistan, featuring a forked river valley with numerous village compounds and fertile agricultural land. The rugged mountain terrain offers routes to bypass the river valley, with plenty of ambush points and overlooks.
Our map optimization team has also targeted Belaya, Skorpo and Al Basrah this release, so these maps should perform better, which has enabled us to add Helicopters to several of the layers for these maps.
Also in Beta 20, we've got some changes to the infantry gameplay, "Fuzzhead" is here with a rundown for you all:
"The auto rearm of bandages on all non-medic kits upon spawning at a Rallypoint or HAB has been lowered from 2 to 1. This change to the persistent ammo system will especially affect the viability of continuous assaults from Rallypoints and FOB’s that are cut off from the team’s ammo resupply chain. The intention with this gameplay change is to help incentivize teams that coordinate and use their logistics chains effectively, and to disincentivize team’s from repeatedly attacking exclusively from Rallypoints, without coordinating with other support elements of the team such as Helicopters, Armored Vehicles, and Forward Outposts.
We also updated the 1st person camera perspective of infantry to more closely match the actual 3rd person eye height of the character. Prior to B20 the camera height was a bit lower than you would expect."
British Forces now have access to an FV432 variant that uses an RWS turret with GPMG. This variant allows the gunner safe protection and magnification for supporting infantry squads.
Canadian Armed Forces now have access to their own unique Logistics and Transport trucks, in the form of the MSVS.
Canadian Armed Forces has received a large update to fix issues and improve the map layers, infantry kits, vehicles, characters and other aspects of CAF, give it a spin
