What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Considering the scale we would like to achieve and the time it will take to reach the full array of features we plan to deliver, it makes sense for us to allow our fans and the wider public access to the game while it is still in development. The nature of the game allows us to take very clean vertical slices (for example, infantry combat, vehicle combined arms warfare) and expand on them while we continue to develop new features in other areas. This allows the community to enjoy and support the game and its developers while work continues, a scenario which our development team is very familiar with, coming from a modding background where fast iteration and immediate player feedback are important.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are anticipating for Squad to remain in Early Access until mid 2017.”

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

“In the full version, we are aiming for the support of 100 player servers with 50 players on each side. In addition what we have planned are a full compliment of vehicles for each faction, which goes from the small (motorbikes), all the way to helicopters. Lastly we intend to fully flesh out the Base Building system by including more deployables, refining the construction and supply systems.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently Squad is in a stage where infantry combat is fully implemented with vehicles added in a "first pass" iteration. We are currently refactoring many older code systems and working on optimization as well as increasing the breadth of content.”

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

“It has yet to be determined whether the price of the game will change during or after early access.”

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

“Currently Squad developers are very active on the forums, discord and Reddit gathering feedback and bug reports to improve the game. We are also actively supporting the modding community and plan to add full mod support in early 2017.”

Announcement: Experimental 6km2 Map Event

Hi Squaddies!

It's time for another Squad update and special event announcement!

In conjunction with several of our community partners we are excited to announce a special game mode testing event this coming Sunday, April 30th at 2 PM PST.

Our community partners came up with some ideas that we've crafted into two very simple gameplay layers, so on Sunday we're all about stretching the boundaries of everyday Squad play to test an experimental map and game mode!

Desmo's playground - VC_v1 (Vehicle Combat)







Designed by our very own DesmoLocke, this layer consists of enough vehicles to mount an entire team in extended vehicular warfare. With 50 vehicles, 1000 tickets, and 3 very large control zones, we are certain to get into some wild adventures!

Zagros Highlands - Conquest Hardened







Combining ideas from a few of our partners, this game mode will consist of 7 conquest flags occupying hilltops. Each team will be allowed 10 minutes to pre-build bases on their two round start control points, after which a global combat barrier will drop and teams will be free to attack each other.

We're looking forward to hearing what you think of the new game modes, so don't be shy if you've got feedback after it all goes down. Whether you're playing or watching, we hope everyone enjoys the experiments we'll be streaming on Twitch this Sunday, April 30th!

Offworld Out.
