Summer Update from the Squad Dev Team
July 15th - Ingame Credits Deadline
Dear Founders and Early Backers,
There comes a time in a gamer’s life where they get to stand up and be counted for backing a Kickstarter Project and with that placing your faith and trust in a group of upstart modders turned development team. With the fast approaching release of vehicles in Squad Alpha v7, that time is now.
To you, the 8000+ gamers who put cash on the barrelhead upfront so we, the founders of Offworld Industries LTD, could pursue our dreams to build a video game for the hundreds of thousands of gamers who played our mod over the last decade, we thank you, we celebrate your support, we are grateful for your trust and camaraderie through the first 18 months of development. As the game continues to expand it’s time we get your names in game, just in time for the release of vehicles in Squad.
We have spent some time to automate this process of getting your name in the ingame credits, it will be as simple as registering your Perk Key sent out on April 29th, registering on the Squad Forums, then linking your Steam account with your forum account.
