There's no release date confirmed yet but I can tell you it isn't far. It's a matter of doing a few extra playtests and getting Linux build fully debugged, mainly. If there's no surprises awaiting for us around the corner, it should be out before August.
In the mean time, we are having lots of fun with beta 3.0, so we want to invite all our fans to check it out before official release comes. Your help also will be very valuable to tweak and fine-tune it as much as possible. If you are interested please step by our steam group and you'll be notified when a new version is available.
In other order of things, if a fully reworked and debugged player movement system, highly improved networked code, new map and game modes, and ton of bugfixes and gameplay changes aren't enough for you, there is more ;) Check out this video for cool Gatling and telescopic Sharps action. Well, it's actually just a feature preview:
There's also good news for stats and ranking lovers. As we are getting HLStatsX:CE official support, there also will be global ranks. They will be based on notoriety, of course! As you know, notoriety is our game score which accounts for all objective/combat/team based actions. It's a server administrator option to send their stats to our global rank or not. That's all, hope you are as excited as we :)
