Hey squaddies!



We’ve got some fresh reinforcements incoming: The Canadian Armed Forces are now fully deployed! That’s right, there’s a brand new faction in Squad and it’s already yours, completely free.




Originally known as CAFMOD, the team behind the new faction is straight from our modding community. We’re honored to be able to include them as official content for all players. What content is that, you ask?

So, what are you waiting for, soldier? Do it for The Great White North!

Hey squaddies!



You’ve been asking for it for some time and we’re happy to oblige: the OWI Merch Store is back and better than ever!




[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]




After a long and harrowing search, we narrowed the choice down to one amazing vendor that can handle all your merch needs. Shirts? You bet. Posters? Absolutely. Stylish black mug to pledge your undying loyalty to the Sphere? You better believe it. There’s plenty more, including some bags to haul all your swag, so have at it!

Hey squaddies!



We’re pretty excited by the release of Modding 2.0 and we wanted to share a little more about what that means.



First and foremost, it means that the Canadian Armed Forces mod is going to be released in the near future as free, official Squad DLC. That’s right: you will be getting a new faction soon, completely free of charge, no action required. O, Canada!

CANADIAN ARMED FORCES​




The arrival of CAF marks our first step towards including community-created content into Squad. This free expansion adds additional weapons, vehicles, and more, giving one of the world’s most well-known armies some well-deserved spotlight. Additionally, the update includes two Canadian maps, Quebec and Nanisivik, featuring snowy environments built for intense combined-arms combat.

Hey squaddies!



We’re taking Alpha 15 into testing and that means we need you! The update will be rolling out to the Squad – Public Testing Client shortly. You won’t need a password, simply install the testing app. (Note: It is a full, second Squad install — be sure you have enough space!)



The test does not have a set duration at this time — we’ll be running it as long as we need to collect as much data as possible.

Below is an abridged list of changes to get you up and running. A complete Alpha 15 changelog will accompany the full release.

ALPHA 15 PRE-RELEASE CHANGELOG​


SERVERS​


As this is a pre-release test, we’ll be hosting a couple of servers ourselves. For the time being, servers will be limited to Offworld Industries hosted machines:



2 in Montreal, Canada
2 in Örebro, Sweden



Server #1 on each location is running newly optimized maps. (Yehorivka, Gorodok, Tallil, Kohat)
