The next update will bring us some new cool features, including some adjustments to the game and a brand new PvP map, Salzburg.
AI vehicles and APS system
As many players noticed, the last updates kept some frustrating elements to the game, especially when talking about guided missiles. To help this issue to be solved, every AI vehicles got a 33% damage reduction, especially in the modes Hardcore Special Operations and Heroic Special Operations, where they got a 50% damage reduction.
Please note that these modifications only will be available on PvE maps.
In addition to that, the APS system (Active Protection System) got a rework. It's now divided into 4 types:
- Passive soft-kill APS, which will now automatically destroy ATGMs once per several seconds, and will come with a limited amount of charges;
- Passive hard-kill APS, which will constantly work at a specific range;
- Active hard-kill APS, which only works when activated from the player, and will create a shield around the vehicle;
- Active soft-kill APS, which only works when activated from the player as well, and will deflect every coming ATGM.
Please note that the active APS systems will come in future updates.
New PvP map: Salzburg
The once peaceful city of Salzburg will now come into a battlefield map, where players will battle against each other for the glory. The river Salzach will work as a divider for the city and the outskirts, which is a terrain that will come in handy for flanking manouvers.
Taking control of the city will have both advantages and disadvantages, because conquering it will result in a more dangerous exposition, but also a more strategic position to open fire all around the map.
If you and your team put together some strategy, crossing the river will even result in a victory, but to do that you'll need to defend the bridges, so keep an eye on them!
Put your squad together and start thinking about effective strategies for these new features; they're coming soon, so stay tuned!
