What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our team has invested in a lot of effort into Hired Ops, aspiring to create a worthy sequel to the iconic Contract Wars. Early Access for us is, primarily, a way to test the game and reach its maximum reliability at the time of launch. At the same time, the key priorities for us have always been and will be the game balance and high-paced dynamics of gameplay.
Throughout the history of our company, we used to listen to our players opinions, and for this reason, the decision to release the project in Early Access was made at the very start of the development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to frequently update the game and closely listen to suggestions and ideas the players. The time frame of development completion will depend largely on what kind of changes will be introduced after receiving feedback from the gaming community. At the moment, the most realistic estimated release date is 1st Quarter of 2020.”

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

“One of the main goals of the Early Access is to understand what additional game functionality players might be interested in and what remains to be done to create a truly amazing game. At the same time, we can announce the set of features that will be available in the release version, but not ready to be shown at the start of the Early Access:

  • Base building
  • Clans
  • Contracts
  • More modes and maps
  • Hardcore Mode
  • Training

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The basic game mechanics and content are fully functional and ready. The game has a large arsenal of weapons and modifications for them, several game modes and an initial set of maps. As a result, Hired Ops Early Access version is basically a full-fledged game that could have been passed as a final release by the less self-critical developer.”

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

“At the moment, we are not planning any changes in price after the end of Early Access.”

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

“The Hired Ops will actively gather feedback and ideas from our community throughout the Early Access. For this purpose, we will use an in-game feedback system, along with communities, Steam groups and other social media. Particularly active players can be rallied to perform closed tests and other tasks within the development pipeline!”

Game improvement work



Mercenaries!

We closely monitor what is happening in the gaming community, and are aware of the current difficulties in Hired Ops. Right now, the development team is addressing the main ones:

1. Improving the optimization of the game as a whole, and especially on outdated hardware.

2. The network. Many players complain that they connect to a server with a low ping, but throughout a match, ping increases several times, and network problems start to happen - players' teleports and other. This is due to a poor connection between the client and the server. Our team is developing a new network module, the purpose of which is to allow playing comfortably, even with packet loss and an unstable Internet connection.

Important! If you join servers that initially have high ping, then check the match search settings (gear on the "Start Operation" button) and make sure that you have the data centers with the lowest ping selected for the search.

3. Cheaters. Most of the players you think are cheaters - are not. These are rather more experienced players or players that make extensive use of the game’s features that you still don’t know about. The game has a lot of mechanics that allow you to mark the player and see his icon even through the walls, for example, a reconnaissance sonar and a drone, a sniper reconnaissance drone, a motion detector, an acoustic sensor. But in any case, there are cheaters in the game, at the moment there are only a few of them, and today we will ban everyone we managed to find in these three days.

4. Chinese language. Since the Chinese community has warmly accepted the project and is actively asking us to add localization, we are starting preparations for adding Chinese localization to the game.

Stay in touch!
