It is now officially the beginning of the fourth week of Open Beta! This week we have a nice collection of bug fixes, map fixes, and new content for you. If you read this week's changelog, you may notice a couple of brand new features listed. First off, the game's scoreboard has been changed. Lebson has incorporated a great side by side design to replace the old top/bottom scoreboard that tended to get get cut off in semi-full servers.
It is now officially the beginning of the fourth week of Open Beta! This week we have a nice collection of bug fixes, map fixes, and new content for you.
If you read this week's changelog, you may notice a couple of brand new features listed.
First off, the game's scoreboard has been changed. Lebson has incorporated a great side by side design to replace the old top/bottom scoreboard that tended to get cut off in semi-full servers. The second item that I am sure everyone is excited about is the new G43 model. Please bear in mind that the new animations and textures to go along with it are still works in progress, but at least you don't have to run around with that G43-Kar98 hybrid anymore. The last new feature I will mention is rnl_LaFiere. We have had several media updates that gave you a look at La Fiere, but now you can finally play it. RnL veterans may get a couple flashbacks, but everyone is in for a fun time on this amazing map.
You can download the Open Beta 1.3 Patch below as well as check out the featured screen shots and read the changelog. Once you're done downloading, please make sure not to join one of the not- yet-updated 1.2 servers but choose one with 1.3 in the name.
