Merc Report - Controlling Field Conditions

  • 2,994
  • 11
Hey Mercs!

With All Hallows Eve quickly approaching and mercs such as yourselves busy in the field dealing with the seasonal horrors, work has been underway towards the next, more merry, update. Of course that means we are getting ready to stuff your stockings full of some Quality of Life improvement cheer!

Scene: You are in the thick of combat with your trusty weapon which features an underslung grenade launcher. But you pause a moment, thinking to yourself “is it loaded?”. Worry no more as the HUD will now indicate the status of these weapons (such as the M16 with M203).


Next up is one for the Survivalists. Get ready to keep those Zeds at bay with a passive weapons swap speed boost, so you can more quickly bring new arms to bear and thus more rounds down range!

For Mercs that play with a controller, we’ve got something big. We’ve been reworking how the aiming system works to add in the...

Update 1.5.3 is being Deployed

  • 5,544
  • 2
Hello everyone,

With the release of Hotfix 1.5.3, after the release of Rising Storm 2: Vietnam on the Epic Game Store, we first want to say thanks to everyone who has downloaded and played the game - as well as the extra players jumping (back) in from the Steam side.

We are rolling out this first Hotfix to deal with those issues we can handle quickly, including some backend issues causing servers to drop off the server browser and some performance improvements behind that, causing issues with joining games. The full change log is below.

Following on from this, Saber (who have been doing all the work to bring Vietnam to EGS) will be working on the next Hotfix, which will focus on the more complex performance issues and the SDK. Because this is more complex, the coding and QA will be more complex, pushing Hotfix 2 to later next week.

Once those issues are squared away, we are working with some “old friends” from the original development team to bring a further round of fixes and...

Update 1.5.2 Is Being Deployed

  • 2,166
  • 6
This is the second of several expected hotfixes for Update 1.5. This update addresses the remaining unprotected commands that were found in the 1.5.1 update that kept it from being a full proper shipping build. The team is working towards another hotfix in the coming days to address other player encountered issues that have been reported.

Thank you for your patience.

  • Client and Server files are now live

Update 1.5.1 Is Being Deployed

  • 5,254
  • 18
This is the first of several expected hotfixes for Update 1.5. This update is a proper shipping build for clients and servers, not a debug build which accidentally shipped yesterday. The current plan includes another build tomorrow to fix several issues that were found in the testing of this build, and another hotfix in the coming days to address other player encountered issues that have been reported.

Thank you for your patience. Client and Server files for this update are now live.

PSA: Update 1.5 Launch Issues

  • 279
  • 2
We are aware of the update 1.5 issues players are experiencing and are working to quickly resolve them. We are expecting to ship an update in the next 24 hours to address the debug build that was deployed to players instead of the shipping build. This will improve performance and provide players with the expected gameplay experience.

Further issues will be addressed in a subsequent hotfix. We apologize for this mixup and we look forward to seeing all the new and returning boots on the ground once this is resolved.

UPDATE: The service should be back online.

We are investigating and hope to bring it back up as quickly as possible. While this is down:
  • Players will not be able to exchange items, such as opening crates.
  • Any missed rewards during this period should be granted once the server comes back.

You can check to see if the service is still down by the connection icon on the main menu.

Merc Report - M&Ms

  • 5,429

Mercs,

After extensive and continued study of bloat bile, the lab coats have managed to re-weaponize it in the form of proximity mine deployable via a Medic launcher device (they tell us you don’t want to be too close, just in case something goes wrong, but also assure us that there are beneficial properties for your team).



May we introduce you to the latest in Horzine medtech research. They call it the Mine Reconstructor. In the field, it can be charged up to deploy mines of different sizes which will increase the damage, radius, and healing properties (And don’t forget you can manually detonate for your teammates who may be down range). Get ready to belch some rounds downrange! You will of course understand that the source of the grenade material is classified.

While the Medics are laying a trap, someone needs to cover the backwards advance to safety, and go full Commando. This one is pretty simple, the...

Merc Report - Shock and Firewall

Hello Mercs,

The lab coats have been at it again so we are happy to share some information about new Horzine Research Group (HRG) experiments we feel you’ll enjoy bringing into the field.

First up, the HRG Scorcher. The team has modified this baby to shoot flares out downrange with significant impact and a lingering burn. Other pros? Your target (or that wall you hit because you missed your target...) will keep everything around it lit up for easy target acquisition by you and your team!



Now for those looking for something a little more indirect you can try out the alt-fire which will have the flare break up in flight leaving a line of ground fire between you and the target. So get out there Firebugs, and blaze a trail!

The last thing the team has been working on comes from observing your fights with the Matriarch in the field and the weapons she has brought to bear against you. The lab coats weren’t about to...

Mercs,

It’s getting to be that time of year where the strange, weird, mysterious, and lets just through this out there, downright demonic seem to pop up... even more so than usual given your line of work.

Some of our surveillance drones around London have picked up just such an event, so we are sending you in to figure out what's happening, and more importantly, shut it down. The surveillance has picked up a cry from the streets close to some of your old haunts. Specifically the rail station formerly known as Kings Cross.



You won’t find any kids waving sticks at you on this visit, nor friendly pet shop boys waiting to sell you goods around the concourse. Things have taken a decidedly more hellish mark. And whatever world these portals lead you to, we want nothing to do with. But perhaps you can make use of some of the strangeness you will find yourself around for extra power... just remember, these sorts of...
