Update "Rzhev"

Commanders, it’s time to launch an offensive on Rzhev! We’re introducing a new campaign on the outskirts of the Soviet capital, when German forces were still strong, and the Red Army’s counter-offensive was just gaining momentum. Both sides spared no effort, earning this battle the nickname “meat grinder”.

The Invasion of Normandy and the Pacific War campaigns have also been expanded with two new missions: “Ver-sur-Mer North (Invasion)” and “Alligator Creek (Assault).”

Thanks to the updated graphics, new battles will feel even more immersive in Enlisted. The major overhaul of the Global Illumination has made the game visually richer, and the interplay of light and shadow more detailed. Additionally, navigating in dark environments will be easier, and these graphical improvements won’t decrease the FPS!

Improved radio operators. Now you’ll be able to call in supply crate airdrops simply by marking a location on the map. The new premium radio operator squads introduced with this update (available in the store), as well as radio operator squads from future events, will also be able to call in rocket strikes – a more effective artillery support against vehicles.

There are plenty of other novelties too. You can now change the camouflage on premium and event tanks, there are new weapons and vehicles waiting for you in the tech trees, and the mighty KV-2 and the powerful 8,8 cm Flak 37 Sfl. have also joined the fight as premium vehicles.

Upcoming updates, like the “Making Enlisted a Better Place”, will introduce bonuses for squads with unique soldiers, recoil improvements for all infantry weapons, and much more. Stay tuned, update Enlisted, and check out the full changelog!

So is it 20% to squad xp, soldier xp or xp in generall?

Hope this delay will come to make sure that this means bonus XP (that impacts silver gain). This would be an absolutely amazing change and would make it massively valuable to get a gold soldier order even after you’ve leveled all squads up. Would greatly assist the dismal silver gains.

This is small but actually I like this a lot.

Can’t wait for this … this will make so much better. Please make one for idle (AFK for more than 10 minutes though).

Still hoping to finally see purchased slots be made optional to use … similar to how the premium slot is optional to use.

Overall I’m looking forward to this update. :smiley:

Please: Upload the news announcements first, then the update package. I have personally completed three rounds of battles after the update and now see the announcement. People won’t know what happened to them if announcements are coming late. It’s so sad to see so many “(will be available in future updates)”, but thankfully I-185 seems will be a good fighter.

When will we get soldier customization improvements and earnable decals/camos from bp?

We collected some of the suggestions and fixes, but it’s all i can say rn.

The wording is confusing then, it implies the soldier gets bonus xp when gold troops are already leveled up,

So like whats the also reffering to, if You know what i mean

This just adds to confusion, why mix feature that will be added alongside those that are already here.
Just to be clear, it won’t work yet?

Does this mean that the old premium radio squads (Italian/US) will become obsolete due to cheap powercreep features?
I don’t like that. They should get this feature retrospectively.

Bit disappointed that the walther doesn’t have a bayonet attached.
Now it joins the “doesn’t have an already implemented bayonet” club.

Checking older news entries, event announcements tend to come the day after the update.

Yall legit only added one new map? All we get is the left bank? Seriously? I’d expected for a new “campaign” that we would see more than that.

  • Added new missions: “Rzhev: Left Bank (Conquest)”; “Rzhev: Left Bank (Invasion)”; “Rzhev: Left Bank (Confrontation)”.
  • Added a new mission: " Ver-sur-Mer North (Invasion)".
  • Added a new mission: “Alligator Creek (Assault)”.

Also Alligator Creek assault makes me want to die.
