What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're a firm believer that working in cooperation with the community would be the best option to improve our game to bring out its full potential. We understand that our game is currently not complete to serve our audience but our development team is fully prepared to take in all the feedback necessary from the community to ensure that the game was really created for the community. We felt that Early Access would help us ensure we ship the best experience to our community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We do not have a schedule set in stone yet, but the duration would depend on the continual feedback we receive from our community until it reaches an acceptable standard both by us and our community.”

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

“Our Early Access phase is to allow more of our audience to participate in playing our game and letting us know how we can further improve the quality. Throughout the Early Access we will be continually adding various modes, maps, weapons, setting changes, and much more based from our community feedback. Until we're convinced that our game at its current state satisfies not only us but our community's approval, will we phase out of Early Access and officially release the game. We also have plans on adding Steam Achievements and Trading Cards as well.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have recently concluded 2 closed beta testing sessions where we've received an overwhelming amount of feedback from the community. Our focus during the Early Access is to implement as many player ideologies as possible in order to successfully polish up our game. We will also be continuously adding more content during our Early Access for our audience. Our intent is to ensure our upcoming content does not take us a step backwards in terms quality.”

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

“Black Squad is a free-to-play first-person-shooter game. However the pricing of our items in-game and DLCs could differ as nothing is currently finalized. Depending on the size of the DLC content the price point could differ, however the prices of in-game items would generally either stay the same or priced lower permanently or just temporarily. It really depends on the community feedback and how that pairs up against our statistics; if it doesn't make sense we'll be making changes.”

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

“We have been listening heavily on the voice of the community. Black Squad is our passion, our baby, and we want to share this passion with our community. This game is made for our community and we can't reach that without them. We will continue to consistently communicate with everyone through all our channels on Discord, Steam forums, Twitch Streams, and our other social media handles to constantly take in more feedback and showcase what’s coming.”

EA Update 29: Patch Notes

System, Content

Fixed Competitive Match(beta)
  • The maximum waiting time UI is added to display before the match starts.

  • Additional UI added on the upper navigation bar to display the current number of disconnections in Competitive Matches as shown below.

  • Narrowed down the search range for matchmaking with soldiers who have similar MMR points first. However if the wait time is too long, the system will then match soldiers who have slightly different MMR points.
  • We fixed ELO rating mechanism so that low team ranking solders will not lose too many MMR points when they lose the match.
  • If there are any disconnected soldiers before the match starts, and the solider is not able to access at all, (e.g. BattlEye Ban, High ping Kick), then the match will be cancelled immediately. In this case, this match will not be recorded as valid.

Random Box Shop

  • New ‘WESTERN BOX’ is available now.
    • The WESTERN BOX can be obtained from the Gold Random Box at the Random Box Shop. The obtained box can be found in your Inbox.
    • To open the 'WESTERN BOX', you need one 'BLACK SQUAD KEY' from the In-game Shop.
    • 'WESTERN BOX' and its items can be available for sale in the Steam Market.

  • We fixed the 'Swear Filtering System' so that some words are no longer filtered.
  • Fixed some texture in SABOTAGE Map.

Bug Fix
