ET Legacy dev 2.77

Recommended Posts




Since 2.76 launched a few weeks ago, the ET:Legacy team received quite a lot of feedback that was use to prepare our 2.77 roadmap. This next version is intended to be a smaller release, with a greater focus on fixing the most annoying bugs, adding global polish and improving gameplay especially under a more competitive angle. See our current changelog.

While the client engine will have some interesting features that we hope will be useful to players, it isn't quite ready for testing yet. The official test server has however been updated with the an early preview of the 2.77 Legacy mod code, so we can ensure the on-going work is implemented correctly, as well as collecting early feedback.

Also, if you look up in the sky you might notice a little change when calling airstrikes. Beside the new allied B-25 Mitchell and axis Junkers Ju-88 aircraft models, you might notice that artillery strikes also have visible shells. These features are purely cosmetic, and do not change the current gameplay. These changes were initially intended for 2.76 release, but were eventually delayed to 2.77 due to lack of time.

Kudos to our developer Aranud for this feature! We hope you'll enjoy the more immersive experience.

This alpha preview can now be tested on the official test server:
