    Update: 15/01/2019 14:45

    With the latest release today we’ve realised that the patch will be a significant 10GB. We’ve decided to keep the game down for a few more hours while we make some other fixes to ensure we don’t have such a significant file size for minor patches, such as this one, again.

    The reason this patch is so large is we’ve implemented a new engine update which has updated a variety of files. This, in turn, is causing the patch to be significant which we appreciate is a pain for you.

    As such, we’ve decided to keep the game down while we reorganise some of the game files to eliminate the possibility this occurs again. We appreciate this may be frustrating for you, however rather than have you download two sizable updates (as we’d expect this same issue to happen with the next release as well), we’re keeping it down, so it only happens the once.

    We’ll share an update as soon as the game is back up and available for players to download again. Thanks for being part of the Mavericks: Proving Grounds mission.


    UPDATE: 15/01/2019: 20:40

    We previously announced we were going to take the game down for longer than expected to reorganise and rebuild our release today to minimise the chance of numerous large patches.

    After our team’s efforts today, we’ve realised that this is a more significant task than anticipated. As such, the game will remain down overnight and will instead be brought back up tomorrow morning (16/01/18).

    We know this will frustrate many players, however, please know we’re keeping the game down now to minimise this issue occurring again in the future.


    UPDATE: 16/01/2019: 12:20

    Thank you all for your patience. The patch is now live and available for you to download. As mentioned previously, this patch is sizeable (between 10GB-12GB) however our changes should stop this from happening again in the future.



  • @rogue10ic-0001 That’s a really good suggestion. I’ll raise this with our UI dept. so they can consider if and how they could apply it. Thanks!

    Good to know, I would suggest that you but something on the login page letting ppl know what’s going on with the servers if they are down for an extended period of time, just my two cents worth, I just had to dig deeper to find this.


  • Founders

    Keep the updates coming, hopefully it’ll continue to get better.
