Engine Upgrade - Beta Stream Announcement

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

6 months ago I decided that the community had been kept in the dark too long about the Engine Upgrade. In development all kinds of things can and do happen, and even the best teams run into issues and blockers.

 

So to help pull back the curtain, I started posting a dev diary of sorts focusing on our weekly progress. If you haven't been following it, you can check it out here:

 

This week there is no update - at least not on the engine itself. Instead we are going to try something different with the community.

 

On Friday, April 17, 2020 at 11am PST we have invited a number of APB streamers to show off the new Beta live. Over the coming week, we'll be posting a list of Twitch channels that will be participating so you can support your favorite.

 

Each streamer will start with some quick benchmarks on their system from APB 1.20 (Live). Then they will load up the Beta and do another quick series of benchmarks before jumping into a couple Fight Club matches on Asylum with our dev team. Everyone will have codes and goodies to give away, and they will be gathering your questions and comments to give me for later.

 

After about an hour all of the feeds will hand everyone off to the Little Orbit Twitch channel (https://www.twitch.tv/littleorbit), where I'll do my best to answer your questions and talk a bit more in-depth about the upgrade and the upcoming timeline.

 

EDIT: Below are the names of the streamers that will be showing off the Beta on Friday.

 

This was a bit difficult to manage, because many of these are controversial figures in the community, but I didn't want to get into the politics of approving or denying streamers. The idea behind this is to allow the community to take a good look at the game with your favorite streamer. You can choose to watch any of these, so let's not flame this thread with criticism. This is a big milestone for the game. Let's enjoy it!

 

Here is the list:

WitchQueen https://twitch.tv/witchqueen

Frosi https://twitch.tv/frosi

Lie https://twitch.tv/liee

Rich https://twitch.tv/cuve 

RuschGaming http://twitch.tv/ruschgaming

Kempington https://twitch.tv/kempington

Flaws https://twitch.tv/Flvws

Gordo https://twitch.tv/gordoismyname

CombatMedic02 https://twitch.tv/0utbreakgaming

Exo https://twitch.tv/exoticzlol

Zeal https://twitch.tv/zeal

PoundOfFlesh https://twitch.tv/thepoundofflesh

Shini https://twitch.tv/shini

Jam https://twitch.tv/amsterjam

Ntec https://twitch.tv/ntec

Sadira https://www.twitch.tv/sadira

 

SKay will be joining Matt Scott on twitch.tv/littleorbit for a Q&A at 12pm PDT / 7pm UTC.

 

Thanks,
Matt

It's not really possible for us to run a Beta like this on console. However, it's the same code base, so there has been progress. In the meantime, we are hoping the PC players can help us work out the bugs before we submit to Microsoft and Sony.

Also, time doesn't really move in San Paro. It's obviously a pocket dimension.

The 2 new contacts featuring the EMP will be added when APB 2.1 launches.

Thanks Matt, looking forward to seeing it in action. I doubt you guys are gonna spank streamers, unlike RIOT dev's did to fl0m, shroud etc. but it'll be fun to see. Glad to see the EU is almost here.
