Coming up in January!
Dec.23.2021 BY KIX_CALIBER
2021 is wrapping up and it’s time to get a jump on January – check out what’s coming up in the next month!
The Alpine Hunter feature event begins December 30th and this marks the start of the Tier 11 Helicopter Season. Look forward to a new challenge map, three new Helicopters, and 26 new pieces of equipment. Having a vast array of strategic equipment loadout options at your fingertips, you have the choice this season of how to best utilize each Helicopter in a role that fits your playstyle.
Collectively named FANG Helicopters, the core stats for all three units will be shared, however each will be distinguished by one major stat augment. The AH-29 Vyper leads the lineup, utilizing increased DPS as the attack variant of the FANG Helicopters.
Fifteen pieces of equipment will be available upon the Vyper’s release, followed by additional pieces in the following two monthly feature events. The equipment released throughout the season are intended to be at the same power level as previously-released pieces of equipment, however the different functionality and stat boosts they provide will open up new opportunities for strategic gameplay in combat.
This release is packed with performance improvements, including a highly requested graphic settings menu, purchasing troubleshooting tool, and performance improvements which span across the entire game.
NEW GRAPHIC QUALITY SETTING
A highly requested feature will be available after downloading and installing the 6.2 game update. A new dropdown menu will be available in the user profile settings menu which provides a method to select which graphics quality setting to be used while playing. A recommended setting will still be available as your device will be automatically detected, however.
NEW SELF-SERVE PURCHASE TROUBLESHOOTING TOOL
A new purchase troubleshooting tool is in development that assists in cases where purchases may not be completed for whatever reason.
For each purchase, Apple and Google provide a status to us, which will now be available directly in your user profile menu. For purchases that are not cleared immediately, this menu provides visibility into content delivered at a later date. Additionally, it provides a method to deliver any stuck purchases and also display the delivered items for each purchase.
Improvements across key areas will be performed in this release and future releases, from implementing additional tooling for engineers’ investigation to tackling the top sources of game crashes. One area already planned for investigation are the loading times for the War Zone.
6.2.1 DATA DEPLOYMENT
