We hope you’ve had a great Easter weekend with your family and friends. Hopefully you had time for some gaming as well. And as a belated Easter gift - here is Patch 1.6!
This week we've got some exciting fixes and new DLC in store for you (see separate post regarding the latter). As we mentioned in Patch 1.5, we pushed the 'Exit to main menu' button out a bit due to other fixes taking priority, but we're happy to announce that the option is now available in the game menu.
In previous patches we’ve put a strong focus on the stability and overall performance optimization of the game, and we will continue to do so. With great help from our community, we have tracked down and fixed an issue that would cause the scope zeroing of the .338 and 7mm rifles to be inaccurate when fired in crouched position.
Another issue we noticed is that the 'Death on spawn' bug was not fixed for all players after Patch 1.5 was released, as we continued to receive reports of it happening. This update should ensure that ‘Death on spawn’ is now part of history.
You can read the full list of fixes below - we look forward to reading your feedback and comments regarding the patch in the comment section and the dedicated feedback thread.
