Whilst also touching on a few important bits of info relating to the current state of the game like Vaulting, which as per the developer update over at Steam confirms that the team is working on it. And that adding the ability for players to jump over in-game objects isn't as easy as it sounds. Also, the team is addressing the idling players issue... and more. New town!
But of course, the big news is all related to weather... and the new map.
For the full patch notes which also highlight the new Mini-14 5.56 semi-automatic marksman rifle, changes to weapon balance and UI updates, head here.
Oh and regarding the planned release date, as per the update "The entire team is hard at work to stay on track with the current roadmap and move out of Early Access before the end of Q4 2017, and we hope to share more details about the official launch later this month." Exciting!
