The first multiplayer test “Reconnaissance” launches today at noon ET.
You’ve had enough of lonely steering in the Test Wasteland, and you’re ready for some multiplayer action. No one is inviting you to join, but you will join anyway. You just can’t miss the chance to start dominating the Wasteland and get ready for BZN mining. But, this time, no weapons will be fired. Consider this your last safe ride in the Wastes. This is your chance to ride together with your fellow warriors and do some friendly aiming and bumping.
“War Riders. Reconnaissance.” launch is today, Sunday, June 9, 2019 at 12pm ET.
Make sure your launcher is at 0.0.2.0
Last week, we rolled out a fresh launcher update, and most users were able to successfully update. However, a few users reported update problems that we are currently investigating. If you experienced a problem, the best solution would be to completely uninstall War Riders from Programs and Features (Windows) or remove it from your applications folder (macOS), download a fresh launcher from here and reinstall the game from scratch.
“Reconnaissance” and disabled weapon firing
We’ve temporarily disabled the ability to fire guns so that we can isolate vehicle mechanics from weapons and adequately estimate the needs of our server infrastructure.
“Live Fire” multiplayer release is scheduled for next weekend
The weapon firing will be re-enabled next week with the “Live Fire” multiplayer release. At the same time, we will release new effects for the bullet and rocket impacts. We will also enable the ping info so that you can report any significant slowdowns to us. Get ready for some nice weapon action!
Test accounts are available for content creators/bloggers
As mentioned last week, there are currently no restrictions as to the number of people who can use a single account (which will be changed shortly after the testing is complete). Therefore, we currently welcome account sharing so that we can get as many people as possible for the testing. Please make sure you change your password later by hitting “forgot password” and following the link in your email.
