Developer Briefing #142 – PC PTE Today, Console BETA info, Trench Gun Peek


Hi everyone

PTE will be starting at approximately 2pm BST 26th August.

This will be one of, if not the last PTE for the upcoming patch. So it’s super important we try to fill the server as soon as the PTE goes live to get to the highest player count we can.

Please if you are available jump in with us as soon as the server is up!

We have made some major progress in regards to optimisation and would like to kindly ask the community to again jump into the PTE.

ICYMI – The progress has been very promising and those who participated in previous PTE’s recently would have noticed decent improvements in performance. We would like to expand on this optimization work before we deploy it live so we can ensure everyone gets the best experience in the game. If you can pass the message on to those who may not keep an eye on the day to day communications, we would really appreciate it.

For this PTE we have adjusted the map rotation to include a wider range of the eastern front maps and included some more familiar western front maps.



So please if you are available, consider helping us stress test the server & join us!

Once you have played, help the team by filling out the feedback form here:

A small glimpse at some noteworthy changes coming in P16:

Markers now display a timer on the Tactical Map representing their lifetime
Players can now equip and begin bandaging with a single hold of the [F] key
Aligning the compass to the orientation of the Tactical Map
Displaying component HP to the repairer of a vehicle
Improved Tanking experience with finer controls for the Gunner and more reliable shell collision
Improved reliability of VOIP connections
Over 400 bug fixes including a number of fixes that had been on our hit list since the early days

Sneak Peek Of The Week

Not all weapons were long range during the battles of WW2, aside from sub machine guns and hand held weapons, the trench gun was a popular feature for close quarters. Nothing beats a bit of ‘up close and personal’ during combat so we thought we would share an upcoming weapon that will help those who love fighting shoulder to shoulder with the enemy. Lots more interesting items like this will be coming in Update 11 so keep an eye out for more information on this and other items throughout our future developer briefings.
