The BattleGroup42 team aim to promote team-play in a historically accurate and fun environment set across the battlefields of World War 2. With each successive release BG42 is developing its own style of unique gameplay. Scout forward positions and call in covering fire as a troop of friendly tanks roll forward backed by APC support, fly air cover protecting your bombers from marauding interceptors, assault an enemy beachhead taking the forward positions before moving inland to victory!

Report RSS BattleGroup42 - release candidate coming soon!

Dear BattleGroup42 fans, after a long time since the release of 1.8 open beta the next release of the mod is close at hand. Final polishing, bug fixing etc. have started, but in order to make sure that the final release will be as good and bug-free as possible, we need your help.

Posted by on

The mod has become so big and complex that our small team can't handle all the testing, bug searching and so on on its own. Therefore, we've decided to publish a release candidate of a current build (from 03.24.2015) some time next week. I can't tell you an exact date, when the build will be available depends on how fast i can create the installer and upload the files. The mod comes with a completely new multilingual installer based on the latest version of Inno Setup, which replaces the old Install Creator setup.

Once the client files are available, we will also switch our gameserver to the release candidate. As of now, it's planned to run the release candidate on our gameserver only, but gameserver admins who want to run the RC on their own server may contact us in order to get the server file. The official release however will be published in both versions, as usual
