Post news RSS Welcome to TWTest - The Wastes v1.3 Play Test

After several missed deadlines you can finally play The Wastes v1.3... as a beta...

Posted by on

Greetings, Wastelander...

It has been a long time in the making...

But the wait is almost over! The Wastes v1.3 is finally nearing the end of development!

We have opened the flood gates to allow players to play test and give feedback on progress to our latest update.

In order to opt in to the play test, you have to right click onto The Wastes in your Steam Library and select "Properties..." In the Properties menu, you should see a section named "Beta," and inside you should see a pop down option with "None" on it. Click on it and select the "1.3beta" option (as photographed below) and Steam will start downloading the v1.3 Play Test build. From there, you should be able to launch the game and start fragging.

Keep in mind this is a TEST and does NOT represent the final update! We need your feedback to fine tune the game and make sure no nasty bugs end up in the final product!

We STRONGLY recommend you read the "TWTest_Instructions_Readme.txt" provided with the build. This document states useful information about the build, several known issues, and where to report bugs.

This test contains 5 playable maps, 5 Game Modes, and the new mission editor for Single Player and Cooperative game play!

The Finale:

We look forward to hearing your thoughts on the latest update of The Wastes! Hopefully the wait for the full release isn't much longer.

We've also made it available for everyone. You can get a build from our own website.

We hope to see you soon on the wasteland, but until then...
Keep on fragging!

I tried it out in single player today. I have fond memories of the old multiplayer. I don't want to sound disappointing, there is so much of a good foundation here and I think with a few more rounds of polish you might have something people are looking for. It's not fun in single player, I don't think amognst everything else it will hold up very well with multiplayer much after release, then its just gone.

Work on it, polish it more, add some in game store cosmetics, hard to achieve trading cards.. I hate CO:GO for what it has become, and still can't play a non-cheating match but I also dont like buying games with a dead multiplayer, and no good single player. I hope to see more work soon.
