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.”

Track Attack Tournament Announcement

Armored squaddies rejoice, the time has come to prove your mettle!

Track Attack Trailer

A good tank crew is the backbone of a team and we’ve noticed that the armored crews out there have not had the opportunity to strut their stuff: enter the official Track Attack Tank Tournament.

Our newly formed tournament committee will be hosting an evening of knockout tank action for teams of 3 people to compete for vehicular bragging rights in true 1v1 tank action!

Taking to the field in intense and brutal 15-minute rounds, teams will fight for the top spot in a knockout-style tournament leading to a grand finale, all streamed for your enjoyment!

We’re hoping this small but high-octane event will be the perfect practice our team needs for our future event organization and management.

Sign-ups for this event will be open on Tuesday 27th August 12:00 UTC with spots limited to 8 teams — we want to give it a shakedown run before going any bigger.

From there we can look to put teams into their matchups and present the full tournament schedule.

About This Game

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. Squad features the US Army, Russian Ground Forces, British Army and Irregular Militia and Insurgents with their own unique arsenals.

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.
