Minden News #24: New Engine - Beta Access
« on: May 29, 2018, 08:17:49 PM »




Issue #24: The Test Gates Stand Open!


The Beta is here! All of you now have the chance to try out the new version 0.14 before it goes live! The Beta version of this patch features little of the upcoming content, but more significantly the new game engine Unity 2017. As we elaborated in past issues, this engine will allow the developers to delve much deeper into their code to tweak and adjust the game's most sensitive mechanics, at its forefront the oft criticised melee combat. But not all the current changes are invisible, as you can now check out two new maps: Linburg and Black Forest! The not yet fully functional overhauled spawn menu has also already made it into the game. A well-designed UI is a crucial part of any game and often goes unappreciated, so we are happy to see further work put into this.

Where my Prussians at? Prussia is still being developed and have not yet made their debut in the game. The current beta of version 0.14 should be understood as the foundation upon which the more significant changes and additions will be built on. We hope the engine transition went smoothly did not unearth a hive of new bugs. The successful implementation of the new faction and the much anticipated melee overhaul may well be directly tied to the game's success and longevity, but for now we must all simply be patient.

How do I opt in? Like with previous betas, simply right click your game in your Steam library, select Properties and navigate to the BETAS tab. Here, select Beta - from the dropdown menu and close the window. A download of about 2.5 GB should kick in and your game will have the [beta] tag.

As per usual, we have events on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 20:00 CEST. Any changes to the events or alternate times will be announced by our Steam group. Again, we thank you for reading this week's issue of the Minden News™. Hopefully, we can soon provide you with even more information regarding the upcoming content for the game. Until then, check out the most current dev blog to read all about this beta in greater detail!

Note: This is not the last beta before the update. Also don't forget to opt-out of it before trainings :-X (definitely didn't happen to me 5 minutes before the training started).
