The update is scheduled for January 26th. It’s a bit of a departure from the normal Wednesday update cycle.
As you know, performance has been a key target of this update. I am currently seeing significant improvements in FPS, memory usage, and overall stability. These are very pronounced in small battles (6 players or less) where I am consistently getting 90 FPS + depending on the level.
Most levels will also handle 12 players at a solid 30 FPS, depending on your hardware.
Lots of work has gone into the settings system as well to ensure you have the option to tune the game to maximize your performance as well.
