And just as a heads up ... all the information that is known right now is in the press release and the FAQs, but be sure to stay tuned to the MA and EU websites for updates. I will make sure they get posted here as well.

Im really happy to hear the news!
I always known the game as it looks now, and to be honest, the graphics were a bit of a shock when i joined back.

I hope that this is a wake up call from MA and they will also put a stop to this lazy 20yo copy/paste policy, of making new gear with prehistoric models (no offense to older player <3 ), which is extremely frustrating.
Seeing a 80k to 160k weapon looking just like a TT weapon is sad.
And more than one animation per weapon, using a sword like a frying pan just gets old.

While i totally ignore the work involved, most modders in other games will provide model mods for fun, and for free.
Like i said in Speedtrap channel: ‘’Happy Mayhem event! Enjoy our brand new Merry mayhem 2021 Rifle, Its a copy pasted rubio by the by, which is a copy of our TT rifle, but also a copy of our Opalo. Happy event! ‘’

So i am really happy to see that they finally stopped trying to make silly side project, and are now fully focused onto the game itself.

Very good news, very reassuring for us, on the other side, and delighted to see things moving the very right way!

Very exiting to live my first game upgrade!

Sounds great. I do hope they wil do alot more testing then previus releases of updated gfx engines and don't release it until all parts work instead of not including them at all.
I also hope the copy paste will end but honestly doubt that wil ever happen.
I do wonder if we'll get the new ui update before the changes.
