@nick-kim We have no plans to do this. Women are, and will always be a part of Insurgency: Sandstorm.
I'm going to lock the thread now, apologies to the people here that reported an issue that had their thread derailed. Sexist, transphobic and otherwise abusive comments will not be tolerated on these forums.
Just sticking my head in here to remind everyone that it's very important to be nice here. We appreciate constructive feedback, but aggressive posts like this won't be tolerated.
We're reading all feedback but I can't guarantee it'll all get a response - thanks so much for a lengthy post here, I'll be sure to pass it along
This week's Closed Beta session is open!
Edit: The Closed Beta is now closed, thanks for playing and see you later this week for more info about the next Beta phase.
If you haven't received a key, don't worry as we send more regularly. Make sure you're registered for the Beta here to receive your key.
What to expect from the Beta?
The team continues to work on your feedback from the previous Beta session. The current priority is to have a smooth experience and matchmaking. Some of you complained about the lack of games played in the last Beta and that's due to a lack of players in some specific regions.
We're trying to bring more players in the Beta to ensure a better experience for everyone - don't hesitate to suggest to your friend to join by registering here.
Please find below this week's changelog:
- Added Advanced Graphics Options.
- Added more keybindings.
- Added handbrakes to vehicles.
- Fixed a bug where sometimes the player could be immediately killed when an anomaly spawned.
- Added an additional warning notification 90 seconds before adrenaline infections begin.
- Increased the time of the helicopter takes to prepare from 60 to 90 seconds.
Quick reminder that the this Beta isn't covered by a NDA, meaning you can share videos, images and info about the game this week. Keep in mind that it's a work-in-progress version of the game, and players may encounter bugs or crashes, that may lower the quality of the in-game experience.
We’d love your help in identifying these bugs, so that we can make the Early Access release version of Fear The Wolves the best that it can be.
Please join the Fear The Wolves official Discord to synchronize with the team and testers.
Where can I share feedback?
Please report technical issues and general feedback on the Fear The Wolves official Forums. Before submitting feedback on the forums please check if there is an existing thread about the topic, or if it is listed in our known issues log.
When providing feedback please try to be as informative as possible, providing information on where and when the issue occurred.
We look forward to seeing you on the servers!
Fear The Wolves Team
