We're happy to announce that 1.31 Open Beta will begin on February 22nd, 2010- but only for active premium subscribers. We've slogged our way through the critical tickets, hammered down the list of high tickets, and will continue work on the mediums throughout Open Beta. With MARTINI having found a workaround for the ATI issue and AHWULF feverishly working on the CTD crash reporting tool, it's been decided that it's time to put 1.31 to the test.

We're going to approaching Open Beta a little differently this time, in an effort to more efficiently pinpoint any potential problems. We will be conducting several Focus Tests at scheduled times before moving to 24x7 access. The call will be put out to have as many people as possible in the Beta to help. We'll need help with the following tests:

Mini Map - The old mini-map has been replaced in the HUD along with some other changes
Infantry Stamina - Fatigue thresholds have been adjusted and new breathing sounds and heartbeat sounds added
Infantry Turn Speed - While sprinting, infantry now have a slower turning/zigzagging rate
Infantry Eye & Deploy Heights - Some changes were made to better align first and third person which effect aiming and deploy
Capture - New capture rules need testing and tweaking
Rain - Random rain showers and cloudy days have been added, lighting levels need to be tested and the air play needs to be reviewed
Foliage - Looking for feedback on new clutter, bush lines, trees and forests
SMG Recoil/Dispersion - The recoil and dispersion on all SMGs has been modified
Terrain Issues - With all our old 2D buildings replaced, new grasses, berms, walls, roads, trees and buildings, we might have a few that need tweaking
Muzzle Flash - Flashes have been updated, tracer smoke added and several hit effects modified
Explosions - Several explosion effects have been changed
Joystick Issues - Fixed some issues with CH manager utility

We anticipate a week or two of focus tests followed by 24x7 testing until we close remaining bug tickets. We will be publishing a focus test schedule next week. Open Beta will only be available to active premium subscribers, so if you've got buddies waiting to come back, it's time to tell them to sign up! The 1.31 download will be made available to the public on the 22nd of February, 2010.

UPDATE! PLEASE READ THE "1.31 GET STARTED" ARTICLE NOW AVAILABLE HERE!
