    Dear Community,


    Today we are going to talk about and show the progress and plans for the new Open World / Survival map. Many of you knew already that we have / had a new map for the Survival game mode planned but due to recent changes of circumstances we have decided to take things a little bit different. Don't worry, there will still be a new map for the Survival game mode! Let us explain...

    INTRODUCTION:


    PROGRESS UPDATE 04-04-2018:



    The plan.
    The plan for the new map is simple. We will be working on a new map for both Open World and Survival. This new map will in the end be another extra map for Open World and most likely the main map for Survival. The reason why we have changed our minds and decided to make this map for the Open World game mode as well is due to player demands. We have done some polls recently asking the community what game mode you guys want us to focus on and Open World came out to be the top choice of players with almost 80% of all the votes. We can also not ignore the fact that around 75% of our player base only plays Open World. Therefor we have decided to make this map for both game modes. Obviously we would like to see how players react to the map once it's released and based on that we will continue with deciding what the final place for this map will be but for now we aim to have it for both game modes.

    The progress.
    It's important for us that you guys know what we are working on and what's the current progress of the map. Through this developer blog we would like to keep you all updated regarding that. Please keep in mind that wherever we mention: "we are working on" doesn't mean we are ONLY working on this new map. Obviously there is a lot of other tasks and plans for the game that we are working on as well. Please understand that. We would like to keep you all update through updates. Every time we feel like we did a lot of work on the map, we will post updates through comments.


    The goal.
    The goal is to have this map finished in a couple of weeks. We aim to make this new map the main and only map of the Survival game mode and depending on the demand we will see how much this map will be present in the Open World official servers list.

    BIG NEWS UPDATE!

    We are finally there! The new map (which we called "Oregon" btw) is about to be beta released for players. This means that you guys WILL be able to play on it very soon!


    What does the beta release mean?

    The beta release of Oregon means that we are still working on the map but at the same time give the community the chance to try the new map out already. The current playable area that we will release for players is already the size of the current Colorado V2 map so imagine how big the map is going to be in the end.

    During the beta period we aim to fix as much issues as possible and improve the playable area as good as possible where we aim to fully release the map in a few weeks. We will do all this mostly based on feedback from community and moderators.

    During the beta release Oregon will only be available in the Open World Official Servers list. Only a few servers in each region will be available with this map.


    When will private servers be available for renting?

    The full release of Oregon will be in a few weeks. When we fully release the map this means that it will be permanently available in the as Open World Official Servers and will be rent-able as private server. This in all regions.

    What does the red areas mean on the map? When will players be able to go here?

    The red areas on the minimap indicate areas where players can't go (yet). Only the down-left area of the map is playable and available for now. In future patches we will slowly start expanding the playable area where it pretty much keeps increasing and increasing.


    In the meanwhile if you DO have any reports about this new map or any other map please report this to us through the following link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScqC7LdHvPtIrAciuNAIdIvkX6LMFNG4mPM5j5L5L6wXv_utA/viewform
