Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

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 launch sometime in 2019.”

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 several updates to handling and animations, ground-based vehicles have been implemented with several component damage advancements, logistics has been iterated on, and the UI is mostly been reworked.”

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, having added Mod Support in 2017.”

The Wrench, March 2019 Edition

Hey squaddies,

While the time changes are afoot, there’s only one thing we can be certain of: it’s time for The Wrench! We’re back for March and all of your great submissions.

Join us on the Community Modding Discord where you can join discussions and meet the modding community. It’s a great place to share your ideas and passions with like-minded people that will happily help you create something awesome.

Qwai River by Spriggan



Reiterating upon a classic Project Reality map of the same name, Spriggan is hard at work to bring this great experience to Squad, as well incorporating design elements of his very own PR map Route E-106. Designed with infantry combat at its core, this map will put you in a 4×4 km terrain with a focus on a tactical, fun experience.





Sumari Bala – Eastern Euro Conversion by [|56|] West



West’s love for Sumari made him think about how great it would work for a hillside eastern European map. In this well-made Sumari conversion, he’s putting Russians or Brits against Militia. West also plans include to add a little bit more detail to the northern side, spreading capture points a bit out more.



Troopers Mod by Loki



An instant community favourite is Troopers. And Loki isn’t one to rest on his success, the team and he are hard at work adding more features and enemies to their mod. There are also some great vehicles that are currently a work-in-progress, so we’re looking forward to future updates. Be sure to check out the current great version on the Steam Workshop and play it! Also join up on their Discord server] and do your part!

Squad Infection by xDJRy



Zombies seem to catch the attention of modders again and again. Now we have a new Zombie mod that is being worked on with xDJRy’s Squad Infection. This mod is bringing back the old-school game mode “Zombie Infection."



Built from the ground up, the infection game mode contains polished gameplay mechanics and satisfying user features which are sure to keep the community returning for more. Custom Maps, Zombie Models, Player Abilities, Loadouts, and Soundtracks are just some of the many elements they have included in this mod to give it the ambiance it needs to make a lasting impression. Everything is heavily work in progress right now, but we can’t wait to see where this leads to.

Helicopter Mod Little Bird by Heedicalking



https://www.youtube.com/embed/miAgj5JheLk

The Helicopter mod, another community favorite, keeps getting updated with new features! This time they added the MH-6 Little Bird in multiple variants: Regular transport, and “night ops” recon equipped with search light and thermal imaging. Squad Ops also has been picking up on it and featured the mod in one of their One Life events.

Australian Faction by AUSSIE Mod Team



The Aussie Mod Team is back creating some thunder from down under, showing early work in progress images of their Australian Bushmaster PMV and one of their standalone maps, Operation: Anaconda. If you want to help out, or simply keep updated, check out their Discord.





SquadZ by smed



https://www.youtube.com/embed/ub1Wbr14Iqo

With so many great ideas popping up, SquadZ has already established itself already in the community, boasting multiple servers. So, congratulations to smed and the team!

The zombies have superhuman abilities including jumping to building height or seeing their next victim through walls. If you have wondered how a military force could be bested by zombies, this is the mod for you. You can check out the mod on the Steam Workshop, and start playing right away, or join up their Discord.

Casspir and Buffel by Springbok_ZA



For his South African Border War Mod, Springbok_ZA is currently working on two very important vehicles of the South African Defense Force: the Casspir and the Buffel. Due to their ease of maintenance in the field and their mobility over the African bushveld, they were used to great effect during the Border War alongside the Ratel as the SADF preferred wheeled vehicles over tracked.

Sign-off

Factions, maps, zombies and sci-fi pest control. What more can you want for a nice Wrench? If you already know you’ll be in for the April edition, simply start your submission here. Until next month!

About This Game

Communicate, Coordinate, Conquer.

Squad is a large scale combined arms multiplayer first-person shooter emphasizing combat realism through communication, team play, emphasizing strong squad cohesion mechanics as well as larger-scale coordination, tactics, and planning. It features large open maps, vehicle-based combined arms gameplay, and player-constructed bases to create a heart-thumping, visceral gaming experience with split-second decision-making in real-world scale firefights.

40 versus 40

Pitting several conventional and unconventional factions against each other, Squad aims to create authentic combat experiences utilizing a sense of being a part of something greater than yourself. Pick a side and become a member of a nine-man squad with your team to face off against 40 other players in intense, large combat environments.

Building System

Do you hear the sound of rumbling and grinding gears? Do you fear the inevitability of your short life at the end of a T-72 Main Battle Tank barrel? Get your Squad Leader to place down an anti-tank guided missile system and remove that pesky tank from the battlefield. In Squad, we provide numerous methods to adapt to the ever-changing needs of the battlespace. Place down emplacements like HMGs and AT guns, or build up a fortified position with sandbags, HESCOs, and razor wire.

Communication

The pinnacle of the Squad experience, communication is a soldier's best tool in effectively engaging the enemy. To help facilitate navigating the complexity of communication on the battlefield, we provide a world-class in-game VoIP system that allows you to talk to other soldiers locally, internally in your squad, between squad leaders, or squad leaders to the Commander. Also, we provide a plethora of other tools that fire team leaders and squad leaders may use to inform their squads and teams, such as map tools and in-world marking tools.
