A27 Experimental is now live!

A27 Experimental is now live!

The Total Overhaul Update is ready for testing! It is the most anticipated and the most important update to the game yet which completely changes how it plays from the very first second to the very end of the newly introduced Tier 5.

Some of the key additions and changes include: _Tier 5, fishing (!), S.H.I.E.L.D. system, structure relocation, Electricity 2.0, mining drones (!),  advanced item tooltips (weapons, armor, medicine, etc.), new mech and mech weapons, oil cracking, new and improved quests, pragmium sensor, neural recombinator, tons of new items and structures, and much more._

As usual, the detailed patch notes will be available on our forums in a few days (we will notify everyone in discord and post a link).

To test the update we've deployed two experimental servers (PvE and PvP, with PvE hosted in the USA and PvP hosted in Europe). You can choose either of the two to test the game. The servers will be live for about 2 weeks.

How to connect:
To join you need to manually set CryoFall Steam branch to "experimental-a27". To access it please right click on CryoFall in Steam Client, choose Properties, then open the BETAS tab, and select the "experimental-a27" from the dropdown menu. After the game is updated—launch it and find the A27 Experimental server in the featured servers list.

Please note that certain mods don't yet support A27 and the game will disable them automatically.

We really need your feedback this time. This update will determine the future of the entire project. So, please give the experimental a go and let us know what you think about all of the changes and all of the new content. Share your thoughts here in discord.

@grimes did you open the Steam properties or the game properties (right more button click over the game on Steam library)?
The BETAS tab is the latest one in the tabs list.

That's odd. The droplist should include "experimental-a27", please check again.

A27 not updating. I see that A27 has changed to version .2, but for some reason, I can't download it. In the meantime, I can't play on version .1

Please restart Steam Client. Sometimes it cannot detect an update.

@grimes, could you provide a screenshot of the game properties (BETAS tab), please? (maybe send it to support@atomictorch.com or just post a link on Dropbox/Google Drive) I'm not sure what's going on, we never heard from anyone else about such an issue with Steam Client.
