What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Ballistic has been in development for quite some time, and has been in the hands of players for well over a year in it’s F2P form. With our Steam release, we are focusing on making the best game experience in the form of a full retail game, cutting out unnecessary features and remaking some important parts. We at Aquiris believe that our players will be the best guides towards the best game. We are remaking game balance, networking, UI, and HUD, and you will be able to help define the game as we enter our early access program. Nothing is set in stone and a lot will change. We are thrilled to offer you the opportunity to be part of it.

Join our active players community and take part in the development while we complete and evolve the game:

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“A few more months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We envision the game as “done” when: all classes and all maps from the previous versions have been revisited and updated.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Almost all content from F2P is back in the game, including:
  • Over 80 weapons
  • 7 Classes
  • 10 Maps
  • 4 Game Modes
  • Steam Market integration

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, its cheaper now, and you’ll get some exclusive vanity items that will never be available again for participating and contributing with our early access. Because you're awesome.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We have an active involvement on the forums, aside of our always present Community Manager and Game Master, our designers, developers and artists participate in discussions and we maintain a public task board where anyone can vote for what features they want to be in the game sooner. We are a small team of really passionate people and we’ll be in there not only to collect feedback but to share our experiences with you.

1.3.2 - January Update



Hey guys! Hope you're all doing well. Over these first days of 2017 we worked on some bug fixes and added minor features to improve the overall experience. One of our favorites is the ability to setup a promotional banner in your dedicated server and advertise your Twitch/Youtube channel!

Bug Fixes
  • Improved Free-for-All spawns to prevent players from respawn at the same point.
  • Free-for-All now rewards players with Kill Assists.
  • Sound effects revised to consistently respect volumes set in options screen.
  • You can now disable the weapon swap with mouse wheel in the options menu.
  • Added specific message when players can't enter a match because of a VAC ban.
  • Improved Quick-Match algorithm.
  • Sunnsquare Mall collision reworked to prevent players from getting stuck on the ceiling in some locations.
  • Crouching repeatedly will not prevent players from take hazard damages anymore, e.g: Gas chambers in Blackfield.
  • Fixed weapon skins not showing in third person with dual wields.

Optimizations
We significantly reduced some memory allocations. Which means, the game should now have less frame drops during the match. Although the average framerate should remain the same.

New Territories
Due some new legal conditions, Ballistic Overkill can be available in all of these countries:

Russian Federation, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Byelorussia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Luxembourg.

Dedicated Server Banner
If you access Library/Tools in your Steam, you will see the Ballistic Overkill Dedicated Server. It allows you to create your own server with some custom options in a fairly low bandwidth and CPU cost. Now you are also able to setup an image and a link to promote your channels.

This is part of many dedicated server customizations we plan to do in the near future.

Hope you like it. See you soon!
