Release Candidate 1 is here!
The Open Beta phase has been highly successful, gaining approximately 55,000* downloads and giving our fans a hands-on preview of how the mod will play.
However, we are now confident that we can move into the next phase of development, the Release Candidate phase.
Although not every feature has been completed, such as the BM-21 or BMP-3 model integration, these small things will probably be finished in time for the release.
Release Candidate 1 offers a host of bugfixes. It also brings 2 new highly detailed radars for the Russian faction, realistic infantry skins for the USA faction, an improved MBT countermeasures system, major improvements to the IADS code, and 3 new maps making the total maps in the map pack 11.
NOTE: This mod requires your World in Conflict to be patched to version 126.96.36.199. or it will not work.
To patch your game, simply start the game, sign into multiplayer, and it will detect that your game needs patched and update your game.
Use these links to download RC1. Regardless of what version of the mod you have you will need to download both the mod and the map pack.
Just click on your Operating System and it will take you to the download.
To get the map pack just click whichever version of World in Conflict you use. If you are unsure, check the shortcut that you use to start world in conflict (right click it and go to properties) or browse to program files and check where World in Conflict is installed.
